Editorial: Tony Dungy and his uncivil comments regarding Michael Sam  

eNews Reference By : Staff Reporting

People used the same argument against Jackie Robinson to prevent him from coming into Major League Baseball.

I would argue that Jackie Robinson was even more of a media circus.

Given Dungy's own experiences in the league; not being drafted as quarterback, the position he played in college and the scrutiny he received as a Steeler because of race, you would've thought his comments would've been more supportive.

I have to say Dungy's comments don't hold muster. One would argue the player in question's stock dropped because of his sexual orientation and Dungy's comments didn't do enough to advance civil rights they only added to the distraction that Dungy claims he wants to avoid.
