Tony Dungy ´wouldn´t have taken´
Michael Sam ... ´things will happen´

CBS Sports, by Will Brinson

Original Article

Posted By:DaddyO, 7/21/2014 8:53:50 PM

Former Missouri linebacker, SEC Defensive Player of the Year and openly-gay human being Michael Sam was eventually drafted by the Rams, though it wasn´t until the seventh round when St. Louis made history. Had Super Bowl-winning coach, NBC analyst and noted conservative Tony Dungy been running the Rams, he "wouldn´t have taken" Sam. Why? "Things will happen" apparently. "I wouldn´t have taken him,´´ Dungy told the Tampa Bay Tribune. “Not because I don´t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn´t want to deal with all of it. It´s not going to be totally smooth ... things

Comments:
What, no suspension for Dungy? No tolerance counseling?

The first black coach to win a super bowl can say things that others can´t, evidently. Even though he´s 100% correct.

There will be too much drama, no matter whether he plays good or bad. The rest of the team shouldn´t have to put up with it.

There´s a reason Sam wasn´t drafted until the 7th round. Most of the teams didn´t want to have to deal with it. Maybe they remember the Miami hazing news. A locker room with 50 naked men with way too much testosterone is no place for an openly gay player.

With Jeff Fisher as their coach the Rams will go 8-8 with or without Sam.

When the original version of the story was posted on the CBS site, it said that Dungy was "technically" entitled to his opinion. Will Brinson is either an incredibly bad writer or the left has telegraphed its real agenda a bit too much. As I prepared to ask what purpose that word had in the article, did it modify in some way Dungy´s right to his opinion, the site was edited to take out that particular word.

Tennessee authorities confirmed late Monday that the remains of a nursing student missing since April 2011 have been found in the woods in Decatur County.

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

Bills’ Eric Wood blames ESPN for
lack of interest in Michael Sam
NBC Sports, by Michael David Smith    Original Article

Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted in the NFL, was cut by the Rams on Saturday and passed over by all 31 other teams on waivers on Sunday, and so far he hasn’t even been able to land a spot on a practice squad. So are NFL teams avoiding Sam because he’s gay? According to one NFL player, the answer to that question is yes — but not because teams are homophobic. Bills center Eric Wood says teams are avoiding Sam because they don’t want the ESPN hype that would come with having Sam, the only openly gay

The St. Louis Rams released defensive end Michael Sam on Saturday, the team announced. Sam´s efforts to become the first openly gay player in NFL history came up just short in a competition against undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks. Sam had a team-high six tackles in the Rams´ final preseason game but didn´t make the 53-man roster. Westbrooks is one of nine defensive linemen to land a roster spot. Sam officially hit waivers Saturday at 4 p.m. ET when all NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to the league-mandated 53 players. From there, the other 31 teams will have

At about 1 a.m., a St. Louis County Police officer shot and critically wounded a man who police said pointed a handgun at the officer near the intersection of West Florissant and Chambers Road. The shooting happened near Chambers and Sheffingdell Court close to the site of protests against police for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Police said they received a call about four to five men in the area armed with shotguns and wearing ski masks and they got reports of shots fired in the area. Police officers arrived and saw "multiple subjects running," said police spokesman Officer

At a news conference Sunday, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said the fatal shooting of a black teenager came after an altercation with police. On Saturday, 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by police in Ferguson, Mo., a suburb of St. Louis. Belmar said the incident started when Brown physically assaulted the police officer, pushing him into the officer´s vehicle. He said there was a struggle inside the car, and at some point Brown reached for the officer´s weapon. One shot was fired inside the vehicle. Brown suffered fatal gunshot wounds outside of the vehicle, approximately 35 feet from

Ed FitzGerald´s campaign for Ohio governor has taken a sharp turn from boring and uninspired into a late-night talk show joke. How bad is it? Republican Gov. John Kasich´s campaign isn´t even talking about the Democrat´s problems. They speak for themselves. FitzGerald´s string of laughably bad news started with new numbers a week ago. A Quinnipiac Poll found that fewer Ohio voters knew enough about him to have an opinion in July than in May. Oops. Then a police report surfaced that showed FitzGerald was found alone in a car with a woman who wasn´t his wife at 4:30 one morning

Leaked doc: Michelle Nunn non-profit
validated grants to charity

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Daniel Malloy    Original Article

The National Review got hold of a 144-page internal document drafted for the Michelle Nunn campaign in December. It includes plenty of juicy revelations on campaign strategy, including a potentially serious issue with a Points of Light connection to a charity that has ties to Hamas, which is now at war with Israel. The revelation came from an internal examination of the nascent campaign’s potential weaknesses and how Republicans could attack them. Points of Light, through a service called MissionFish, helped validate thousands of charities for EBay users who wanted to auction items and donate the proceeds to a specific charity.

In an update this morning that provides the necessary context to Israel’s rejection of a ceasefire at this stage of its offensive in Gaza, Omri Ceren of The Israel Project writes: Leaks have begun to trickle out on what Israeli interrogators are learning from captured Hamas fighters. One plot in particular is getting overwhelming attention. Hamas was apparently a few months away from conducting a mass attack on Israeli civilians during the upcoming Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana, on September 24. The raid would have been like something out of a movie: hundreds of heavily-armed Hamas fighters would have emerged

In 1976, in Shelbyville, Ind., a city of about 20,000 southeast of Indianapolis, a film premiere was held. The picture was Fellini’s Casanova. A highly conceptual Italian art house flick about sexual deviance was not what this audience was used to; the house, nonetheless, was packed. A local was in it, a 21-year-old everyone knew about but whom few knew well. She now sat nervously waiting for it to start, concerned about what her neighbors were going to think of it, of her. “For his giant work, he even imported a giantess from America,” one news article about the picture had read, a find that had ended director Federico Fellini’s, “worldwide search for

As we suspected, President Obama tried in his Wednesday-night speech to make it sound like he was doing something new when he, in fact, he is not. Moreover, in describing his response, he made plain that he doesn’t take the threat to the homeland seriously. For a threat his advisers say is greater than that posed by al-Qaeda after 2001, he proposed measures suitable for Yemen and Somalia. No, really — that’s the plan. For starters, the president doesn’t believe the Islamic State is a current threat to the U.S.: “So ISIL poses a threat to the people of Iraq

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat.

President Obama just announced that he is bringing a counter-terrorism strategy to an insurgency fight. He was at pains to repeat the phrase “counter-terror” four times in a short speech. Noting that ISIL is not a state (partly because the international community thankfully does not recognize it), he declared, “ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” Neither of those sentences, unfortunately, is true. ISIL is an insurgent group that controls enormous territory in Iraq and Syria that it governs. It maneuvers conventional light

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion. "No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of [the Islamic State´s] victims

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.
