FS1’s Whitlock: Michael Sam Was a ‘Stunt’ by the NFL to Please PC Crowd


On the Thursday broadcast of “The Herd” on Fox Sports 1, Jason Whitlock reacted to the report that then St. Louis Rams made a deal with the NFL to draft openly gay Michael Sam out of the University of Missouri in order to not appear on HBO’s “Hard Knocks.”

Whitlock said he is not surprised by the report, saying the move to draft Sam was merely a “play to the politically correct crowd.”

“Michael Sam was a stunt by the NFL. It was a play to the politically correct crowd. The guy’s too short, not fast enough off the ball, he’s not an NFL player, and I think people did the homework on him and said, ‘You know what, I don’t know if he really, really loves the game.'”
