Michael Sam Fails Miserably @ NFL Combine; More Proof “Coming Out” Was to Extort Draft Prospects for Mediocre Athlete

By Debbie Schlussel

Openly gay college football player Michael Sam didn’t do well at this week’s NFL Combine, a meat market where possible draft picks show what they can do. In fact, he performed terribly. And this is what many of us warned that Sam’s coming out party was really about. It was all about hedging his NFL bets with political correctness, not about civil rights for men who have oral and anal sex with other men.


When Missouri football player Sam declared he’s gay just weeks before the NFL combine and the later NFL Draft (which I call, the “Beauty Pageant for America’s Next Top Bankrupt Multi-BabyDaddy Crack Dealer”), some (including myself) speculated that this was to extort a better Draft position because he’s a mediocre athlete. If he doesn’t get picked high enough (and/or if he got cut during NFL preseason camp), he can whine that it’s “because I’m gay” and blackmail teams to draft him higher and keep him on the payroll even if he doesn’t perform. And, now, USA Today football writer Brent Sobleski is confirming that. Sobleski reported on Sam’s terrible performance at the Combine and names Sam as the Combine’s Number One disappointment.

The NFL combine is a chance to impress teams. Players have an opportunity in front of them to perform at a high level and improve their status for the NFL draft. Not every prospect performs well — and some really struggle. Unfortunately, the stock of three particular players may have dropped a round or more during Monday’s combine drills:

1. Michael Sam

The biggest obstacle for Sam isn’t his decision to announce he’s openly gay. It’s how he projects to the NFL. And he didn’t perform well in front of NFL decision-makers Monday.

Sam is an undersized 4-3 defensive end at 6-2 and 261 pounds, and he hadn’t shown the ability to play linebacker. During his workout at the combine, he didn’t display the physical tools necessary to convert to linebacker in the NFL. First of all, Sam isn’t very fast. He clocked a 4.91-second 40-yard dash. UCLA’s Anthony Barr and Buffalo’s Khalil Mack, who are considered the top 3-4 outside linebacker prospects, both ran 4.6-second 40-yard dashes. Sam’s time was among the worst of all defensive ends.

He also struggled in other events. His 17 repetitions on the bench press and 25.5-inch vertical jump were also well below average. When Sam participated in drills to see if he could convert to linebacker, he lumbered around the field and simply did not look fluid enough to be a conversion prospect. After a poor performance at the combine, Sam is likely considered late-round prospect by most teams.

But you know what they’ll say when he’s picked in one of the late rounds: it’s because he’s gay.

Statistics–the statistics by which all other (non-openly-gay) NFL draft prospects are judged–be damned.

And, by the way, late-round NFL prospects are often cut in pre-season camp. But if a team wants to cut Michael Sam for his poor performance on the field, team execs will wonder, should we cut him and bring on the wrath of the media and gay America?

And if they do cut him, you know what they’ll say again: it’s because he’s gay.

As I said then, nobody cares about who Michael Sam is sleeping with or what sex acts he performs. When it comes to football, it’s all about how he performs on the field. And since he can’t perform well there, he’s trying to make it about whom he performs with in the bedroom.

By the way, I wonder how Sam performed on the Wonderlic test. If he failed at that, too, don’t worry. Blacks and Muslims say it’s RAAACIST!

Maybe we should give Debbie the nickname “Bo.” LOL!!!

Debbie knows history. Debbie knows politics. Debbie knows track and field. Debbie knows football. I well remember the first column about Michael Sam, Debbie. I remember you called him a mediocre football player, while some were not in accord.

Looks like Debbie was right. The combine is geared for these guys to show off all their skills, timed for them, set up for them, and basically handed to them on a silver platter. If you can’t cut the combine, forget the Big Time.

Great call, and another great article, Debbie. Be interesting to see how this plays out. Wouldn’t be surprised if a story comes out about how he was threatened not to perform well at the combine.

This comes as no surprise, because even in the liberal Washington Post sports section, they were saying that he was not that good, and padded his stats during a garbage game against a very inferior opponent.

What now? A Rooney Rule guaranteeing a roster position to gays?

Prometheus on February 26, 2014 at 12:38 pm

He’s too small to play D line (4-3) in the NFL. Maybe 3-4, but not with those numbers. I thought he WAS a linebacker. I agree that his coming out was strategic and if any team drafts him, they’ll get a hole snoot full of trouble. I don’t think he’ll be drafted to be honest with you. And that WILL spark the ‘because he’s gay” whining. It’ll be interesting.

Tommy Thomas on February 26, 2014 at 1:01 pm


    You’re right. This was a strategic move on his part for sure. He probably won’t be drafted, and this will fuel endless commentary a la “But look at so-and-so, they also said he was too small, slow, etc etc.”

    Sam is already going to be remembered as a martyr to the cause.

    To clarify how stupid this all is, imagine just before you apply for a job—any job—you announce “I’m gay!” Gee, I wonder why anyone might do that?

    Prometheus on February 26, 2014 at 1:29 pm

And ESPN is all in on this, too. The other day they actually covered the press conference by the Nets after Jason Collins signed…..a TEN DAY contract. If he was straight, it wouldn’t even merit a mention in the crawl across the bottom of the screen.

Sean M on February 26, 2014 at 1:28 pm

A little reverse logic here, with a touch of (blond[e]ly ambitious) humor.

With speed like Debbie mentioned in the 40 (4.91), instead of trying to get faster, or cut weight and try out for safety, he should take the HGH, insulin stack, no need for steroids when you’re doing that stuff, eat a lot and lift big. He should get to be a beast in the weight room.

I, as an extremely gay friendly straight man, a never-was in the bodybuilding game, can teach him all this stuff. But the HGH, insulin stack I want plausible deniability on, because I’m against performance enhancing drug use. ROTFLMAO!!!

So, anyway, if Michael Sam does the routines I give him, eats according to my advice, and makes gains, gets to ohhhhh, 317, if he can keep that 40 under 5.4, he can try out for offensive line. Yup, that’s what he needs to do.


Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 26, 2014 at 1:30 pm

It is a time honored tradition of the mediocre to engage in blackmail in order to obtain what they could not otherwise legitimately obtain. We are now likely to see sexual set-asides, as we have already seen for race and gender. Identity politics leads to the lowest common denominator in terms of actual talent.

If I see one more story about a gay person this week, I think my head is going to explode. Our local rag ran a 5 page story on the 10th anniversary of the New Paltz, NY gay rights movement and how they got the ball rolling. There isn’t a day that goes by that there isn’t a story about a homosexual and how wonderful and brave and courageous they are. 2-3% of the population should not be getting this much attention. It’s like the minimum wage crap that is also in the paper every day. The WH gives the press their matching orders and they, like good Brown Shirts, obey.

JeffT on February 26, 2014 at 3:40 pm

I’m with the other Jeff, JeffT. I’m tired of gay gay gay every day. As a Christian I think it’s wrong and I think it’s learned behavior, but, as long as they live their life I will live mine.

This is just a media orchestrated diatribe to make gay marriage legal. I laugh at the sports media shows who keep saying, “When are more going to feel comfortable coming out?” like 90% of the league is gay.

Free speech is nearly dead in the U.S. The NFL is now going to throw flags at people for using the “N” word on the field.

Jeff_W on February 26, 2014 at 4:00 pm

Debbie, you said at the very end of the source and article that you published and put out for everyone to comprehend and showcase:

“When it comes to football, its all about how he performs on the field.”

Precisely, to be honest with all of you here, I could careless if Michael Sam is a gay man, bisexual man or pansexual (which I happen to be a pansexual man BTW, but not for sexual reasons), his performance in the NFL combines a few days was dreadful from all sports sources that I’ve read, and not his alleged sexuality.

I also think the reason why he underachieved in his combine performance was due to him making his announcement a few weeks ago, the kid was assumingly distracted and probably trying a little too hard, and when you try too hard at stuff, you normally flunk and perform below your expectation(s)! That’s what I think, one man’s view.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on February 26, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    Does a pansexual have sex with pans? Just wondering.

    Jonathan E. Grant on February 26, 2014 at 4:42 pm

If he’s a late-round pick? What if he’s not drafted at all? Look what’s going on in Arizona right now with that bill. The political gays will take the Michael Sam situation as another opportunity for grievance-mongering and multiple protests alongside their sympathizers if he’s not on an NFL roster this fall.

Alan on February 26, 2014 at 4:22 pm

” It was all about hedging his NFL bets with political correctness, not about civil rights for men who have oral and anal sex with other men”

ha ha ha Debbie Keeps it real, so poignant, terse and succinct!!!

“which I call, the “Beauty Pageant for America’s Next Top Bankrupt Multi-BabyDaddy Crack Dealer”

but she misses the mark with this one, complete nonsense and mean spirited.

Big D on February 26, 2014 at 6:15 pm

In the end, it’s all about skills.

Was Sam-I-Am a good enough player at the start? Apparently not.

I’m sure that if he were, he wouldn’t be displaying his gay-ety.

Regardless of bent, you either have game or you don’t. End of story.

Excuse me while I get back to my life, please. And thank you.

The Reverend Jacques on February 26, 2014 at 8:04 pm

I agree with Jeff T and Jeff W. I’m tired of the Gay propaganda machine forcing us not only to accept but embrace their lifestyle under the guise of “tolerance”.

As for his skills a 4.91 40 yard dash time along with only 17 reps on the bench doesn’t cut it. Not in today’s NFL which has morphed into a speed game. The younger QB’s routinely run 4.5’s or better. Heck, larger lineman have better speed than a 4.9. He better have some great skills other than speed or strength.

“Attention whore” is what I said.

Why is everybody sucking up to the queers? The whole media is full of gay this and gay that. When did everybody stop being normal? I was taught growing up that this faggot shit was wrong and immoral and disgusting, and I agreed with that. Is America turning into Sodom and Gomorrah?

RT on February 27, 2014 at 1:17 am

Not turning RT, way past that point, already. We blew past that stop miles back. If you want Sodom and Gomorrah, you have to take the next train going back the other way. Friends of mine and I have noted this isn’t the country we grew up in for at least the last 20 years. You’d have to go back to when Reagan was in office to find some semblance of America left. He exited office a quarter century ago.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 27, 2014 at 8:26 am

What is alarming is the rapidity with which the major sports groups jumped wholeheartedly on the Barry/Eric Queer Outreach program! No questions, just sign up and become part of Barry A-Team (or is it F-Team?). With the networks behind him, even FNC joined the rest against Arizona, the sports groups, media, special interest groups all pushing this same sick agenda. This
is now just the beginning of the BULLYING of the churches etc.
We all saw how vehemently the GOP protested? I don’t think Wimp Boehner’s lips have been separated from Barry’s ass since 2011 !

Sad thing is that with so many perverts and subversives joining team Obamer, there is no chance in hell that he will step down after 2016! He is not garnering this absolute power just to turn it over to some old white hag!

Hans Schaden on February 27, 2014 at 8:48 am

Debbie, we spotted the same possibility before the combine, but still can’t be sure if he would use that path to inevitable scorn?

JohnnyAngel Advocacy on February 27, 2014 at 9:28 pm

I am still waiting for Ervin “Magic” Johnson to come clean…

Marc on February 28, 2014 at 9:32 am

Debby, we Fruity Pebbles fans are hurt by you placing our favorite cereal on the same page as a 5th rate football player- This isn’t the first time “Fruit” has been dissed. — Trayvon Martin’s daddy- known as “fruit” to his friends was texting Tray about dealing in guns shortly before Tray was killed during his attack on Zimmerman. http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/02/27/trayvon-martins-father-americans-care-more-about-guns-than-children-whoopsie-thats-odd-because-trayvons-father-was-texting-him-about-guns-just-days-before-trayvon-was-shot/

bobby99 on February 28, 2014 at 5:57 pm

His draft stock probably wasn’t going to be that good to begin with. So his coming out party, would be to help prop his draft stock. But we’ll see how it goes. Leftest team owners such as have the Steelers, Giants and Seahawks, will come to the rescue. Look for this “pansey”, to make a appearence on “Gay the Nation”, “Rachel Madcow Show”, “Ellen Degenerete”. All joking aside, this boy is in for a rough go in the nfl.

William on February 28, 2014 at 7:55 pm

Much ado about nothing. He was projected as a late 3rd to early 5th round pick before coming out. Most said that he did absolutely nothing to improve on that. Probably lowered his selection by a round or so. So, he will most likely be drafted in the later rounds and will be treated like any other person at that point. He’ll have a hard time making the team as a late round draft pick. Actually, I think that ‘coming out’ might have hurt him. Knowing that the later rounds are pretty much a crap-shoot (who am I kidding, so is the first round) teams will pass on him as they wouldn’t want the controversy with a player whose odds are so low in making the team in the first place.
