Texas Sports Anchor Gives Pretty Much The Best Speech Ever On Gay NFL Players [VIDEO]

Subscribe to Hot 107.9 on

Dale Hansen, a sports anchor from the local ABC affiliate (WFAA) in Dallas addressed the topic of Michael Sam; the former Missouri defensive player set to become the first openly gay NFL player in history after coming out publicly just days ago.

Within two minutes of the segment, titled Dave Hansen: Unplugged; Hansen went from cracking sarcastic jokes, to a serious tone that complimented a commentary that showed the contradictions and the double-standards from most of Michael Sam’s naysayers.

You beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs, pulling her hair out by the roots? You’re the fourth guy taken in the NFL draft. You kill people while driving drunk? That guy’s welcome. Players caught in hotel rooms with illegal drugs and prostitutes? We know they’re welcome. Players accused of rape and pay the woman to go away? You lie to police, trying to cover up a murder? We’re comfortable with that.

When asked why he took such a firm stance in his video that has now gone viral, Hansen tells the Huffington Post he simply writes what he believes, and believes in what he writes.

Now just imagine if more people could think that way.
