Michael Sam's Boyfriend Vito Cammisano Shows Support After Getting Cut from the Rams

Michael Sam‘s boyfriend Vito Cammisano is showing his support for his man after he was cut from the St. Louis Rams following the pre-season games.

Vito posted this cute selfie of himself and Michael together on Twitter. They are both wearing shirts from the University of Missouri, where they both attended college.

Michael, who hopes to become the first openly gay NFL player, can still be picked up by another team by Sunday (August 31).

“I want to thank the entire Rams organization and the city of St. Louis for giving me this tremendous opportunity and allowing me to show I can play at this level. I look forward to continuing to build on the progress I made here toward a long and successful career,” Michael tweeted. “The most worthwhile things in life rarely come easy, this is a lesson I’ve always known. The journey continues.”

    He should have been focused on the game rather than making statements. Who gives a crap what he do! Play ball and shut up.

    I think it’s cute that Vito is so supportive and loving. It’s always great to have someone important in your life when life knocks you down. However, I have no doubt that Michael Sams will be back in no time.

    I don’t, for one minute, think this was a fair decision. ESPN’s recent hit piece headed by a homophobic black reporter was the nail in his draft pick coffin. Despite ESPN’s claims they are ‘all inclusive’ they are lying and have on too many occasions belittled, degraded and humiliated gay athletes. Too much of the white male hetero “God forbid we let a homo in our locker room” mentality. Im ticked and disappointed. The RAMS have lost the great support of the gay community and hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional revenue.

    He was a top player from a Div I college and was ranked 90 in the draft. He comes out and overnight he drops to a 180 rank. Then he plays well. He gets more tackles than any other Ram. But no, that’s not good enough. Sorry, best of luck to you! What do you expect of a deeply homophobic NFL where teams hire women dressed in very little clothing to cheer on the team? Sexism and homophobia rule at the NFL.

    @Cary Chauvet: this is why they stay in the closet. there has always been gay players in sports but they don’t come out until they retire and probably many never do publicly.

    it’s so sad that they have to hide their life away like criminals just to play a sport they love.

    @Cary Chauvet: Micheal Sams never recorded a sack or tackle against a first team offense, all his plays were made against 2nd and third team and practice squad player, what held mr sams back was his lack of strength and quickness he had his day out of the closet….now get back inside with your little girlfriend and lock the door.
