    This is the exact same argument that bigots used to argue against blacks being integrated into the armed services. Supposedly whites would feel uncomfortable using the same bathrooms and showers. (Which did not happen.)
    ESPN should be so proud to be following in that glorious tradition of fanning the flames of irrational prejudice.

    Rams Coach Blasts ESPN Over Report On Michael Sam's Showering Habits
    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/rams-coach-blasts-espn-over-194958690.html


    Among Fisher's accusations leveled against ESPN reporter Josina Anderson, who did the story for "SportsCenter:"
    • She manufactured the story — "Obviously she came in, in all likelihood to see if there was gonna be a roster move at the 75 cutdown as it relates to Mike Sam. That didn't happen. But she needed to do something, and it's my understanding that she manufactured this story."
    • She violated the team's media policy — "We have a media policy, and we're very flexible. We have open practices. Players are available. We have open locker rooms ... She was out of line because she went and contacted several players on their personal time."
    • She misled the players she interviewed — "[She] misled them with questions and then put this piece together."

    This is riduclous , just the stuff i dont want to deal with thats why i only tell people who i trust . Note to straight guys just because were gay doesnt mean we think about sex in the lockeroom. Like the op said its football people.

    yeah that was embarrasing for ESPN. I've heard it told the only reason they even stay alive is they hype up and dramatize insignificant stories. No thanks.

    I watched the video and didn't see anything overtly negative about what was said, but then thought- why is this even up for discussion? This isn't some dank locker room with flickering florescent lights where some crusty guy is fucking a hole in the wall. This is an NFL locker room, the player's focus is palpable, especially now when everyone is analyzing each other and cuts are being made. This isn't some gym locker room where people come to workout and relax at their leisure. Professional athletic locker rooms are the pinnacle of locker rooms, dreams and careers are achieved and destroyed on the field, and the locker room should be a safe space to foster team unity and to focus. Poor Michael Sam, trying to just do good and keep his head down, but here comes ESPN to try to sensationalize his sexuality. Yes, a gay football nfl player is groundbreaking, but they really cast a suspicious light on it.

    Hmmm.... sounds like another network's way to spin "news" as well... (hint: "fair and balanced")
