Just maybe Sam has found the right place where he can possibly play right away and that's the Dallas Cowboys. On Wednesday, the Cowboys signed Michael Sam to the practice squad and he can help them immediately as their defense was horrid and still is this season.
Job discrimination is un-American. So change up now, both of you -- and pay my rainbow tax for your egregious behavior. Your past includes a horrible lack of leadership to end discrimination not only in football but all professional sports.
Including an understanding of behaviors typical of chronic domestic violence offenders and a realization that our best chances at prevention involve intervening with adolescents will augment the NFL's strong move to increase penalties for domestic violence offenders.
So how about this for a deal. What if the Christians focused on loving their neighbors and let the Cowboys -- including Michael Sam -- focus on playing football. Seriously!
To honor the start of the 95th NFL season, Redfin compiled a list of four winning properties (one for each quarter of the game!) owned by current and former NFL players. Each one is currently on the market and can be all yours.
Playing a sport like football teaches you how to "summon the beast." But growing up means learning what to do with those passions after the end of the fourth quarter. Edmundson's "education in the game" has been so potent because he hasn't left its lessons on the field.
The craft beer you drink, like the team you love, is inextricably linked to the place it's from.
In the throes of the widespread criticism of the lenient suspension in the Ray Rice case, Goodell has stated "I didn't get it right." He has absolute power as judge and jury in determining the penalties for off the field misconduct. In future situations he could be at risk again for not getting it right.
Native American youth see the offensive name "Red***" plastered on t-shirts, hats and national stadiums -- a word that was defined in the dictionary long ago as a racial slur. Don't we all wish to live in a community -- in a country -- where our identities are respected? So why are we failing to listen?
It doesn't take much effort to look for, and find instance after instance of NFL players who get away with everything short of murder. And when it comes to who leads the league, the San Francisco 49er's are now all time leaders in teams having the most players with arrest records.
This weekend Sam was cut by the Rams after a strong preseason. St. Louis was the wrong fit. The Rams handled the entire process with class. Yet the disturbing part is that no other team felt he was good enough to make a roster.
Last season, there were multiple NFL players who sustained spinal injuries. With a new football season approaching, let's review the status of these players to see how they have recovered from these injuries, and who is ready to get back in the game.
The National Football League may be billing this game as the rematch of the "Fail Mary" replacement referee debacle, but true pigskin lovers know it's an eagerly anticipated battle of mercurial offense versus terrifying defense.
The really super part is how Hunter keeps finding ways to embody everything PLAY 60 represents. Not only does he insist on being as active as his body can tolerate, he also continues to encourage others to get moving and watch what they eat.
The NFL is a league that tolerates homophobia, the lofty words of its officials notwithstanding. And until LGBT groups and politicians stand up and take it on rather than cowering, homophobia will continue to get a pass.
You probably disagree with me, and that's cool; enjoy your sport and find happiness in it. I didn't. So I'm not going to purposely watch any NFL games anymore.
