Should the Jaguars add Michael Sam to their roster?
Dallas is having an exceptionally well season so far, why?, cause they have Michael Sam in their roster, or practice squad, where as the St Louis Rams are having a terrible season so far, why?, cause they cut Michael Sam.
Kind of like how Jaguars continue to go winless, since they defaced Tim Tebow by saying they'd never ever consider bringing him on the team.
The Tim Tebow effect still lingers over Jags, and now the Michael Sam effect will continue to linger over the Rams.
But the Jags could rectify their situation if they brought Michael Sam to Jacksonville, FL, since the Jags defense is suffering so badly.
Gus Bradly can start off 0-8 last year, start off 0-5 this year, and still praised by radio commentators.
Record...4 wins, 17 losses.
Yet man is being praised by local sportscasters, looked at as a hero, a savior, even though has worse record in NFL, and can't win games if life depended on it, yet nothing but praise for Gus Bradly from radio and sports commentators.
Yet I can remember 'black' NFL coaches like Singletary, or Dennis Green, former coach of Minnesota, and Arizona Cardinals.
Let's look at Dennis Greens record with Arizona for a second.
As you can see, Dennis's first year with the Cardinals was 6-10, better than Gus Bradly's first year with the Jags.
Dennis's second year was 5-11, we've yet to see if Gus Bradly can pull off 5 victories this year, as he hasn't won a single game yet.
All I'm saying is I don't remember anyone in media referring to Dennis Green as a 'genious' while having loosing record, yet it's all I hear local radio sportscaster heap upon Gus Bradly.
Seems if white coach looses, he's still praised and hailed as gifted and bright, but when black coach looses year after year, darker things are suggested, like affirmative action, not qualified ect.
And this mindset spills out far beyond football and into every day jobs.
But most aren't honest about why they do it, judge a black coach one way, and a white coach another.
Gus Bradly is a loser, a loosing coach, white or not, the guys a loser thus far with the Jags...I'll say it since others are afraid to.
Don't matter to me if he's white or black, he's a loser, and can't rally the Jaguars to victory, makes poor hiring choices, drafts wrong players ect.
Gus is a loser, thus far, and his color, being white, won't shield him from my critique.

What sickens me about the NFL in regards to Michael Sam
The NFL would rather have millions of people watch closet gays play on the field, bi-sexuals, and other deviant types, than to allow one honest player to play, who's open about their orientation, and who is a one person type of guy.
Michael Sam was, is, honest...and honest people are the best people in that you know up front what you're dealing with.
The NFL is full of many closet versions of Michael Sam, and now they'll remain even more closet.
After they witnessed how the league treated Sam.
Kind of like sweeping dust under rug hoping no one will notice syndrome.
Truth is the NFL, from players to coaches to owners and everyone in between, is full of the exact cross culture of America.
That means perverts, gays, abusers, drug addicts, racists, atheists, bullies, bi-sexuals, and on and on.
But one thing the Michael Sam episode has taught them is to simply be 'hush' about it.
Pretend you're 'normal'...and the league will give you a pass.
Pretend you're 'normal', and the league will give you a pass
But if you have enough integrity to come out about yourself that Michael Sam had, than suffer the full wrath of 'image control'.
In other words if you lie, you're rewarded, if you're honest and tell the truth, you're punished.
Both Michael Sam and Tim Tebow both represent the same thing, just on opposite ends of supposed moral scale.
But both made NFL mistake of being to honest about who they are.
In the meantime you can be as gay as you want, fornicate as much as you want, lie, cheat, steal, just keep it all under the carpet, and the NFL will give you a pass and sign you on to a deal.
The reason why I don't watch NFL anymore has zero to do with politics or Kappernick
The reason why I don't watch NFL on TV anymore has zero to do with politics or Kapernick taking a bow on sideline during Anthem, or any other player taking a knee, as for as that goes.
Here is why I no longer make time to watch NFL
1. Getting older, the older I get, the less sports interests me, across the board, whether baseball, basketball ect. As one ages, the hero's one once admired when younger don't seem so heroric anymore.
2. Adds and commercials, adds and commercials are written in a way that really insults the minds of the thinking. Time is short, and when not working, don't have time to waste 40-50% of TV viewing time on commercials.
3. Not enough games plastered on TV, like olden days, I remember when growing up, on Sunday, just about every channel had NFL game playing on it, you couldn't avoid the NFL on Sunday when had CBS, NBC, ABC and other such networks, but now days hard to find regular NFL game on TV, the NFL, like with Heavy weight boxing, has 'hidden' itself behind to many special channels, this package that package, in 2017, most peoples lives are just to busy to waste time searching for games, so instead settle for scores on AM/FM radio while driving.
4. In 2017, common people work more yet earn less, so off time is very precious, and if only have a few hours off work, before bed, other things take priority.
Talk radio hosts like Rush, Savage, ect, all attribute lower NFL viewership and game attendance to 'politics' (but of course they would, cause that's what they do, politicize all actions and behavior under the sun to fit their narrative of life and others)
But in reality, politics have very little to do with it, and someone grounded in real world would know this, which millionaire talk radio hosts are not.
In 2017, people just have a lot going on, so many more things to input from computers, Iphones and more.
People today have a microwave mentality, and sitting down for game, just doesn't fit that microwave mentality now days.
And it transfers over to other areas, for instance, hard for me to even sit down and watch a movie from beginning to end anymore, can't do it....instead it's like 5 minutes here, pause, 10 minutes there, pause, (while I go clean the kitchen), 4 minutes here, pause, as must start laundry, and so forth.
As you get older, just seems time moves faster (accept when at work doing what you hate, or in environment you hate, than time always goes slow)
In closing, my reasoning for not watching NFL anymore, or even paying attention to it has zero to do with politics or players taking the knee, I'm not that 'sissy', or sensitive.
Life is short, and I enjoy what I want to enjoy while can enjoy it, and if I was still into NFL and all, no one player, or a few players here or there, would detour me from watching.
But in my case, and probably millions of others, it's simply the stuff listed above and more.
1. Cut back on commercials, in this day and age people simply lose interest after 3rd commercial that insults their intelligence...and go outside and start mowing the lawn.
2. Put NFL back on regular TV, where regular people can't help but stumble upon the games, but if keep hiding games in special packages and on cable, forget about it, who has time or money for that.
