Michael Sam, the Great Gay Hope, cut by the Cowboys.

Sam who was never all that at the NFL level, is only known (As opposed to "best known") for attempting to get a position in the NFL primarily because he's gay.

That he went about it all wrong is obvious: he should have went out there like any other rookie, got cut like about every 99th draft choice (Or whatever it was) and THEN come out of the closet.

But with Sam, it was never about either the game or the team.

It was always about him.  And "him" ain't all that impressive.

I pointed out multiple times along the way that he wouldn't make it; it's pretty much clear that he simply didn't/doesn't have what it takes.

The debacle of the oft-repeated celebration for the Rams wasting a draft choice on him would have been distasteful and moronic regardless of his proclivities.  And except for wasting everyone's time and a lot of money, this is the outcome I was pretty sure was going to happen from the beginning.

It just took a little longer than I thought it would.

And, as I also prophesied, this is the reaction of the gay community:

He was cut because he is gay. He is the best pass rusher on the team and would be starting if the team was not owed by a homophobic redneck....the whole state of texas[sic] is just a waste....SMDH
Utter nonsense, of course: but that's what all of this idiocy was about to begin with: had this guy been straight or had he remained silent about his proclivities, then we never would have heard of him again.

And in the name of true equality, that's the way it should have been.
