Michael Sam

The Perfect Response to Tony Dungy

7/21/2014 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0721-michael-sam-tony-dungy-getty-01Michael Sam is responding to Tony Dungy's comments -- by not responding -- with Sam's rep telling TMZ Sports he refuses to engage with the legendary coach ... and wants to keep his focus on football.

It's not the first time Sam has had to deal with a former NFL coach claiming his sexual orientation would be a distraction -- earlier this year, Herm Edwards said Sam has "issues" and coaches would have to decide if they want to bring that kind of "baggage" into the locker room.

Sam didn't respond to Edwards either.

Now, with Rams training camp officially opening up for rookies today (veterans report on Thursday), Sam's camp is once again issuing the perfect response ... "no comment."

Wouldn't want Jeff Fisher to have to "deal with" any unnecessary drama ...

I am sure Sam is not the only gay player in the NFL....Who cares what his sexual orientation is ? Imagine what the world would be like if people weren't so judgemental and would just learn to except everyone for who they are..

I change my mind about this guy. I like Sam. If he stays focused on the game, soon enough people will also. Doesn't matter who you are out where you're from... Just how well you can either hit or avoid being hit by d another person.

It's not Sam's character that's questioned, he seems like a great kid. Its the media's dishonest obsession with creating "heroes" that's the problem. Let Michael Sam prove himself on the field b4 he is celebrated

He didn't come into the game keep a low profile he wanted the world to know and now that the NFL can see why all that hoopla you wanted wasn't so good for them. How many gay men sit around and watch football. Now compare that number to the number of families that watch. Do you really think the NFL is going to lose money to help you prove a point to people who just don't give a damn? Really this is NOT the gay pride parade this is FOOTBALL. To much more of this gay stuff and I'll have to redirect my families interest, do you think I'm the only one?

Michael Sam has an unfair advantage - he gets to threaten other players with his AIDS and Hepatitis sweat and body fluids.
