Ira Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune had the story about Tony Dungy saying he wouldn’t have drafted Michael Sam because of the distractions. He joined The Booger and Ryan Show to discuss the article and Dungy’s comments.
Kaufman said Dungy knew the comments would go public and he’s certainly getting beat up for it. He will have to clarify his comments at some point in Kaufman’s opinion.
Kaufman said he doesn’t believe that Dungy’s religious beliefs factor into these comments. He said Dungy is likely being an objective coaching figure who just believes that he needs to have a strong locker room. With distractions, you may not have a strong locker room.
