ESPN Gets Public Shaming For Reporting On Michael Sam’s Shower Habits [Photos]


ESPN is being outed as a team of “homophobes” for their latest coverage on Michael Sam that has little to do with football.

There is no surprise that having the first openly gay player in a professional sports league will draw the occasional headline, but as the St. Louis Rams training camp is firing on all cylinders, the worldwide leader in sports seemed to be fishing for much more.

When asked how well Sam was getting along with his teammates, Josina Anderson relayed information from an “anonymous teammate,” saying, “Sam is respecting our space and that from his perspective he seems to think that Michael Sam is waiting to kind of take a shower as to not make his teammates feel uncomfortable.”

The Rams have actual issues to worry about. Their starting quarterback Sam Bradford is out for the season with a torn ACL. The entire year could be a wash…like a shower. Naturally, the much of the sports world felt the same way and ESPN’s name was drug through the mud on social media.

Scroll through the gallery below of the outrage the soapy news coverage generated starting with Rams’ defensive end, Chris Long.

      Has that stopped hetero’s from being attracted to other people than their significant other? So why should the same not apply the homosexuals?

      • Meandmybish

        Difference is they are acting like he plays football just to watch men in the shower. Let the man play and stop bringing up his preference. It’s annoying.

        He can’t play though. He’s a wack player. He’s there because he’s gay.

      Sad part is he is not the first gay NFL player, guaranteed if you did some investigating you’ll find many who are now living the lifestyle, he truly is not the first he is only the first to admit it. Players been showering with gays for decades, just didn’t know it.

    Wait a minute—-you mean these NFL teams earn BILLIONS of dollars a year in revenue and they don’t have individual showers yet? wtf are you serious! Why are they still using PRISON showers in 2014 ? That don’t make no dam sense


      HAHAHA never thought of that
