ESPN- While Michael Sam has mostly received an outpouring of support since announcing that he is gay, his father is struggling with the news, according to a published report. Sam revealed to his Missouri teammates he is gay last August, but he didn’t disclose his sexual orientation to his parents until last week. He said Sunday in interviews with ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” and The New York Times that he is gay. Michael Sam Sr. told The New York Times that he received the news last Tuesday when his son wrote in a text: “Dad, I’m gay.” Sam’s father took the news hard. He said he was eating at a Denny’s restaurant but had to leave after receiving the text. “I couldn’t eat no more, so I went to Applebee’s to have drinks,” Sam Sr. told the newspaper. “I don’t want my grandkids raised in that kind of environment.” Sam Sr., who described himself as “old-school,” told the newspaper the idea of a gay player in the NFL bothers him, even when that person could be his own son. He told the newspaper that late Hall of Famer Deacon Jones, the leader of the Rams’ Fearsome Foursome who is credited with terming the word sack, “is turning over in his grave.”He told the newspaper, however, that he loves his son and hopes he makes it into the NFL. “As a black man, we have so many hurdles to cross. This is just one he has to cross,” Sam Sr. told The Times.
I endured so much in my past: seeing my older brother killed from a gunshot wound, not knowing that my oldest sister died when she was a baby and I never got the chance to meet her,” he said. “My second-oldest brother went missing in 1998, and me and my little sister were the last ones to see him … my other two brothers have been in and out of jail since eighth grade, currently both in jail.”

What a fucking piece of shit this guy’s dad is. First of all, look at your life buddy. You are eating a Denny’s in the middle of the day or early evening, that’s just fucked up to begin with. Denny’s is early morning with a one nighter you don’t want seen or late night drunk as shit. Then you leave that fine establishment to head over to another, god damn Applebee’s, so you can slam down 2-4-1 drinks because your son said he is gay. Of all the gay people I know, everyone including the dog knew they were gay for years so that shouldn’t have been a shocking thing to learn. Next look at your other kids. One was murdered, one disappeared, one died as a child and two are currently in jail. You have one son who graduated from college and was Defensive Player of the Year in the hardest division in college football and you say you don’t want your grandkids around him?? You should be so fucking proud to have a kid with those accomplishments, you should bring OTHER people’s grandkids around him to brag. Then you cop out with the “black people have it tough” deal. No shitty people have it tough, your son did the IMPOSSIBLE and you’re talking shit in the New York Times? You may be the worst father in the world right this moment. And that’s after I watched the Billy Ray Cyrus rap video.
Tell me how bad it is having a gay player in the NFL when it’s your son and he buys you a new house and covers that Applebees tab.
