WATCH: After coming out of the closet and being blackballed Michael Sam calls out other gay NFL players in a new revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey

I don’t understand why it’s considered ground-breaking or news-worthy that a gay guy is able to play football, but NFL baller Michael Sam definitely surprised a few small town middle America folks by moon-walking out of the closet a few months ago and revealing that he has a thing for snow queens..

Most of us would have been fine with not knowing about what he did in his bedroom behind closed doors and really didn’t care as long as he played good defense on the football field, so I was lost as to why he felt like it was necessary to “come out” to strangers just to be judged..But in his new interview with Oprah he addresses the controversy head-on and offers somewhat of an explanation..
