  • Elway: what's all the fuss about Michael Sam?

    "I applaud Michael Sam and wish him the very best as he continues the pursuit of his NFL dream," Elway said Monday." As we look toward the combine and draft, we will evaluate Michael just like any other draft prospect — on the basis of his ability, character and NFL potential. His announcement will have no effect on how we see him as a football player. Having spent 16 years in an NFL locker room (as a player), the bottom line is that it's about treating others with respect and earning that respect. By all indications, it appears Michael has done just that throughout his football career."

        31 other general managers failed to make statements regarding the same -- Elway's out front on this issue, and I'm proud of him AND our organization.

              Still, well played by Elway I say. yes, it's a strategic PR move, but frankly nobody else was saying anything at that level. And people assumed as a conservative republican he would not openly support this, that's not true. As to whether he'd actually draft him I don't know, but it was a smart move on his part and truly the right thing to say anyway.

                  Apparently Elway has never played all-female volleyball.

                      Yup. While Elway acknowledged Sam's "courage" in coming out......he basically says he doesn't give a **** whether he's gay or not. Being gay is not a reason to draft someone, or NOT to draft them.

                          Sam, you like movies about gladiators?

                              While the fans get all caught up in the media storm, Elway says nothing to see here, move along.
