The Rams’ decision to draft Michael Sam could actually have huge legal implications for gay couples and employees across the state of Missouri.
The Rams drafting Sam has raised some deeper issues about openly gay athletes in sports and in the workplace in general. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) posted on Twitter: “Michael Sam could still be fired for just being gay according to MO law. Let’s fix that in Jeffcity.”
Training camp is set to begin for the Rams on July 25th.
