If you sat through just about seven rounds of the NFL Draft you witnessed history. The first openly gay football player drafted to the St. Louis Rams. If you were on twitter you realized half the remarks were congratulatory and the other half of disgust. Michael Sam overwhelmed with tears of jubilation shared a kiss with his boyfriend as ESPN aired a genuine moment for the SEC Defensive Player of the Year.

Many tweeters showed disdain for airing this while others applauded for sticking with the moment. Where do you stand? Too much for television or kudos for keeping it real?
