  1. Dungy Takes Heat for Anti-Sam Comments

    Tony Dungy, one of football’s most respected former coaches, says he would not have drafted Michael Sam — the NFL’s first openly gay player — because he “wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.” The statement surprised many given the NBC analyst’s history of supporting embattled players, including Falcons quarterback Michael Vick after he was convicted for dogfighting. Critics find Dungy’s stance especially disappointing given the struggle he once faced to become the first African American head coach to win a Super Bowl.
