    I laughed at that. I'm disappointed in myself. Anyways Sam had probably the worst combine I've ever seen. That alone drops his ass like 4-5 rounds. Before he came out he was considered a 2nd round pick. When he came out people said 4th-5th. Then he had that abortion of a combine and dropped to the 7th. I thought he was gonna go undrafted.

    What I'm suggesting is that I can usually tell what side of the gay rights issue someone is on when they use the term "the gay agenda". The term itself is accurate. The connotation it often carries is negative IMO.

    Teo is the same kind of player, he just didn't come out of the closet. Terrible combines for both of those players!

    Since when does a combine really affect someone THAT much?

    I'd be wary to predict a person's stance off of use of the term "gay agenda". Political agendas of any sort are easy to recognize but difficult to define. Many people, myself included, are not big fans of any thing politcal, especially those issues that are the current politically correct trend. I'd say the great majority of people in this country believe that all people should be treated with respect and equality.

    The frustration many have with the "gay agenda" is that is appears hypocritical to espouse equal acceptance and then be so intolerant of those who oppose gay right equality. Especially when the population that is promoting an injustice has chosen to identify themselves based of off behavior that the vast majority of this population believes should be kept private.

    Personally, I don't give a chit what people prefer sexually as long as they keep it private. I simply don't want to hear about it whether it be heterosexual or homosexual preferences. And people certainly CAN'T view or treat another negatively if they don't know about their preferences. That is one facet of the "gay agenda" that I find offensive- the lack of respect for people who have a dissenting opinion.

    Kevin Siefert actually wrote a decent article as this topic as it pertains to Dungy's and Michael Sam that I read earlier today.

    Forced Vontaze Burfict (a Pro Bowler who was and is a much better talent than Sam) to go undrafted.

    Why should people keep their sexual preferences private? IMHO being in the closet about your sexual preference, homo or hetero is unhealthy. We all operate under a certain code of ethics and respect for one another, so baring any breach of that what is the problem?
