Michael Sam: Undeserved Negative Attention

Football player, Michael Sam’s announcement regarding his sexuality has ignited thousands of reviews online both positive and negative. Top online reputation management company,  Centel Media™ offers clients negative review suppression services to help rid them of negative search results.

Michael Sam has become a household name overnight when the former Missouri defensive lineman announced that he is in fact a gay man. Sam spoke publicly for the first about his sexuality to both ESPN and The New York Times. The All-American lineman is eligible for the 2014 NFL draft on Thursday, May 8th which has heightened the talk surrounding the scandal. No athlete in the history of sports has ever made such an announcement right before an attempt to be picked up by a team in the NFL draft. Michael Sam’s own father didn’t have such a great initial reaction to his sons bombshell news, even though he recently claimed to have had his words taken out of context.
Should he have even announced it? Why did he have to announce it now? Was it a strategic move to get attention before the draft? Is this too much drama for any contending team to want to take part in. All of these questions (among others that are much worse) have filled online search results regarding Michael Sam. This small piece of information has succeeded in taking the public’s attention away from what it should be on, which is his talent and capability to play the game.
