Yesterday, former Bucs coach Tony Dungy was quoted in a story written by the Tampa Tribune’s Ira Kaufman that if he had a chance to draft Michael Sam, he wouldn’t have done so. Dungy told Kaufman “I wouldn’t have taken him. Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it. It’s not going to be totally smooth…things will happen.” The article has caused a stir in the sports world and on social media, with some standing behind Dungy and others criticizing him for his comments.
