"On Tuesday, while providing an update about Sam’s quest to make the St. Louis Rams’ final roster, reporter Josina Anderson said that a Rams “defensive player told me that ‘Sam is respecting our space’ and that, from his perspective, he seems to think that Michael Sam is waiting to take a shower, as not to make his teammates feel uncomfortable.”" - Statement from ESPN

This is the same question that was posed when Black players entered into the professional sports area. The very same question that was presented when Women sports reporters were allowed into the locker room. Its now full circle in the Same-Sex Debate (which is kinda funny when typing this) for Male Insecurity in Sports 3.0.

There is culture in the locker room, especially when Sports and Team Bonding is concerned. The uptick in (which to this day we haven't seen signs of this in either Sports or the Military) where groping, raping, orgies, sexual assaults, unwarranted stares and glares, animal and or blowup doll simulations or even open discussions about asking for dates in showers have ever occurred prior to or now that "orientation" has become a distraction for playing Professional Sports. I think its hilarious how weak minded and socially challenge players are looking at Michael Sam as if the NFL recruited RuPaul into the NFL. The man earned the Right to play ball. If he can't cut it ... than "cut" him (no pun interned). What would really be a shower report is if Michael Sam reported how many "closet" players are looking at him. Now ..... that's something to think about.

By the way ... ESPN doesn't regret anything. They are trying to get everyone hyped to watch more sports, their broadcasts and follow Michael Sam because he is the new thing to talk about and capitalize on after last years decrease football ratings.
