When Michael Sam became the first openly gay player to be drafted by an NFL team, he broke down a barrier -- but a lot of people still have issues with it.

Dale Hansen, a reporter with Dallas' WFAA, has been a supporter of Sam's and continues to speak out on behalf of the former Missouri Tiger in this piece he did slamming NFL teams for passing on him.

Sam was the 249th player drafted, a fact Hansen simply can't believe. He also says a gay player in the NFL really shouldn't be an issue. Time will tell if he's onto something.
