Mizzou treats Michael Sam's sexuality as non-story

The NFL could learn from Mizzou, which treated Michael Sam like a teammate and not a story after learning of his homosexuality, reports CBS Sports.


Sam told the Tigers in August. Mizzou not only played the entire season without leaking Sam's preference to the media; it supported him, made him a team MVP and watched him sack the quarterback 11.5 times.

The NFL has long sold the tenet that its locker rooms are sacred places that shouldn't be disrupted. Well, apparently an SEC locker room, with nearly twice the number of players, branded Sam with two labels. Teammate. Pass rusher.
