Looks like ESPN went too far.
During Tuesday’s update on the Michael Sam roster update, reporter Josina Anderson says that a Rams defensive player told her 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.”
Anderson also stated two defensive ends for the Rams stated that they “didn’t know Sam was in the shower and wasn’t tracking him.”
After a firestorm of comments, ESPN issued the following apology: “In response to recent questions about Sam fitting in with the team, multiple Rams brought up the shower topic and we relayed that information as part of our reporting.”
This isn’t the first time ESPN did this kind of obsessive reporting. Two years ago, they kept on reporting about Tim Tebow.
We all know how that went. Video is below:
