Viewers hit the former NFL head coach hard for his "incredibly distasteful" take on the Cowboy quarterback's injury.
Former Buccaneers coach Tony Dungy challenged them to chip in with his own contribution.
"Without that national anthem [protest], someone would have signed him by now."
I've seen a little too much insistence this week, online and on social media, that Michael Sam's being cut from the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad had nothing to do with his being gay. It's a bit overwrought and defensive. A lot of fans seem to want to believe the NFL is not a homophobic institution.
Last week the New York Giants announced the hiring of former Super Bowl hero and anti-same-sex-marriage advocate David Tyree to a front office job, where he is directly responsible for the development of player's careers.
At what point will drafting an openly gay player no longer be described as risky because of the alleged distraction?
How exactly is a homophobe supposed to carry out the job of director of player development? How is a gay player on the Giants supposed to react to this if he is thinking about coming out or is experiencing anti-gay harassment on the team?
