Over the weekend they had a NFL draft. The Ram took the first open gay man Michael Sam. Now I am happy that they looked at his talent and not his sexuality. BUT now Oprah wants to do a show on his life and they are saying that his Jersey is top seller and VISA is wanting him to do a commercial.
Are they taken this too far? Shouldn't this young player focus on Spring training and making sure his talent is not "spoiled" by all this attention?
I have seen so many talent players get this much recognition and they got their chance to show the fans what they could do and failed. Ricky Williams comes to mind, he was endorsed as the best player and he got a big head went out and couldn't do as they all thought. Now dont get me wrong he played 11 seasons but as a hush hush player.
