Street Talk: May 19, 2014

Do you think Michael Sam’s NFL career will be adversely affected by his sexual orientation?

“It won’t make a difference at all, sexual orientation won’t make a person not a good football player.”

Tom Brindley, Oneonta, principal


“I don’t think that it will because the NFL has a pretty strict code of conduct and teams are afraid to violate that now.”

Loren Graham, Franklin, Springbrook worker


“It shouldn’t but it most likely will because of the way the NFL is.”

Brian Louden, Oneonta, construction

“I still think the NFL is too similar to a fraternity; some players might joke with him and he might take it the wrong way, which could hurt him on the field.”

Kyle Jefferson, Oneonta, unemployed 


“I think teams are so afraid after the Richie Incognito situation that the teams don’t want to get themselves in trouble and lose draft picks.”

David Baxter, Oneonta, student


“If he can be a real player he’ll be fine.”

Steve Havens, Oneonta, security
