Reporter’s Epic Response to Michael Sam Coming Out [VIDEO]

When football player Michael Sam, the All-American defensive end from the University of Missouri, recently announced he is gay, some of us sat back and waited for the response to begin.

While most have reacted positively and with strong support, others have not been so open to the idea of an openly gay football player in the NFL.

Dale Hansen, a reporter for WFAA-TV in Dallas, may have the most epic response of all.

"A gay player wouldn’t be welcome in an NFL locker room. It would be uncomfortable because that’s a man’s world."Since Sam’s announcement, officials have said that his draft number will be affected when it comes to Draft Day because “A gay player wouldn’t be welcome in an NFL locker room. It would be uncomfortable because that’s a man’s world.”

What Hansen had to say next was a response for the ages:

You beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs, pulling her hair out by the roots? You’re the fourth guy taken in the NFL draft. You kill people while driving drunk? That guy’s welcome. Players caught in hotel rooms with illegal drugs and prostitutes? We know they’re welcome. Players accused of rape and pay the woman to go away? You lie to police trying to cover up a murder? We’re comfortable with that. You love another man? Well, now you’ve gone too far!

What do you think about an openly gay man in the NFL? How many gay players do you think have already played in the NFL but haven’t been open about it?
