Last month, former NFL coach Tony Dungy was assailed by the tolerance mob for saying that he wouldn’t’ve gone out of his way to get Michael Sam on his team. “It’s not going to be totally smooth,” he said. “Things will happen.” Things like … media circuses, maybe?
Today, with 7th-round draft pick Michael Sam’s release from the St. Louis Rams being the focus of so much media chatter, some tweeters think Dungy’s been vindicated:
Welp Michael Sam got cut. Tony Dungy doesn't sound so wrong anymore huh?

These are the "distractions" Tony Dungy was talking about. Rams release Michael Sam…now every media outlet will talk about it for a week

And THIS is why Tony Dungy would not have drafted him. Blame him now?

Tony Dungy was ridiculed for his distraction statement, but this kind of attention for a cut 7th rounder kinda proves his point, don't it?

The odd thing is that mad people were cut this weekend yet the rams will have to answer for the release of one. Tony Dungy had it right

Of course, the haters are still gonna hate:
I wonder if vocal homophobe Tony Dungy has successfully dissuaded other teams in the NFL from taking a chance on Michael Sam.
