With that being said, why is it that this video of Michael Sam finding out that he got drafted viral? Isn’t it clearly obvious that the entire video was staged? He had a professional videographer right there sitting on a couch like he was just another member of the extended family. Michael Sam just happened to be wearing a pink golf shirt with his boyfriend standing directly beside him the entire time. We have watched the clip thoroughly and did not see hardly any actual tears at all. Therefore….was the whole thing staged as just a major publicity stunt that has now gone viral? What happens if Michael Sam gets out on the field and stinks? Keep in mind that he was overlooked by quite a few teams — not because of his sexual orientation, but because of his poor performance at the NFL combine. We definitely want to congratulate Michael Sam on getting drafted as we would any other player. But, the question remains – Was all of this hooplah really necessary?
