Wait a second, NFL. You’re comfortable with players who beat women, use drugs, drive drunk and worse, but you can’t handle this?
This is amazing. Dale Hansen, a Dallas sportscaster, gave what is possibly the best and most powerful response yet to Michael Sam’s announcement that he was gay. Sam is poised to become football’s first openly gay player. He came out right before the NFL draft.
This is going to go down as one of the most powerful speeches made in support of Michael Sam, in just under two minutes Hansen brings up the awful behaviour that the NFL does seem to support including rape and vehicular homicide. He also slams the conservatives who want small government until they want legislation around marriage, AND he quotes Audre Lorde. I would go on but I don’t want to ruin the video for you.
