This is the moment that openly gay NFL player Michael Sam found out he’d been drafted by the Rams

Of course, it attracted its fair share of closed minded reactions (we’ll leave it to you to add in more strongly worded language), but we couldn’t help but be moved by the raw emotion displayed by brave NFL recruit Michael Sam upon hearing for the first time that he had been drafted by the St Louis Rams.

The openly gay footballer was picked up in the seventh-round, and celebrated the news in style with a smooch with boyfriend Vito Cammisano, predictably drawing the wrath of several prominent figures within the NFL community including former Super Bowl champion Derrick Ward who Tweeted:

“I’m sorry but that Michael Sam is no bueno for doing that on national tv. Man U got little kids lookin at the draft. I can’t believe ESPN even allowed that to happen” –

Shame. We just think: good for you Michael Sam, now go prove the detractors wrong in the big league.
