Michael Sam’s father is now changing his comments about his son

Michael Sam’s father Michael Sr has now changed his comments in regards to his son’s coming out. The old man told Galveston County Daily News that he was “terribly misquoted” in the initial article, saying he never brought up his grandkids, and his quote about Deacon Jones rolling in his grave.

“My son did the right thing, and I am not against him at all,” Sam Sr. said. “He has made a great statement in coming out, and that he should be able to play in the NFL. I love him unconditionally. … Once he gets on the field and hits [someone] once, they won’t think he’s gay.”

The Times responded to Sam Sr.’s claims about being misquoted and said that they quoted Sam Sr. “accurately and fairly” in their article.
