Dallas Cowboys cut Will Smith to make room for Michael Sam (Krista Pirtle's Blog)

Michael Sam has signed with the Dallas Cowboys as part of the team's practice squad.

But to make room for Sam, the Cowboys cut former Texas Tech linebacker Will Smith. 

Sam recorded three sacks and 11 tackles in the preseason. While the Rams are loaded on the defensive line, the Cowboys need some help after allowing the most yards in franchise history last season.

Sam was cut Saturday by the Rams and became a free agent when he was unclaimed by the other 31 teams.

Not even worth a comment.



Homophobia expressed in three different threads this afternoon by some folks is really revealing.

Stands to reason that some of the half witted anti gay rhetoric could be better understood if we understood homophobia in a comprehensive way. Studies have shown that some homophobic behavior is indicative of latent homosexuality.

"Homophobes Might Be Hidden Homosexuals A new analysis of implicit bias and explicit sexual orientation statements may help to explain the underpinnings of anti-gay bullying and hate crimes"


Men who display anti gay rhetoric and hate for homosexuals may be experiencing same sex desires.



An old trick, if you don't approve of the "alternative lifestyle", then you're accused of being one.

Jerry Jones, anything for publicity.



Not really. I find it interesting that a poster with a history of bigoted comments felt the need to leave derisive comments on 3 threads in one day regarding Lgbt people. More than the poster's usual quota.

Billtt, let's take your offensively false description of Sam's sexual orientation, "alternative lifestyle", and apply it to your own sexual orientation. What proclivities and predilections presented you with the "alternative lifestyle" choice you made? Do tell. No one likes to have something so intrinsic questioned or debased.

Some folks need to be better educated. Willful ignorance is the second best friend bigotry ever had.


This is so laughable, one

This is so laughable, one sick puppy!



might be seeing derisive comment maker in practice squad across the line of scrimmage from Mike Sam. Watch the self perceived "masculinity" of said commenter be emasculated in 2 seconds.
