    It's so football coach-y it's comical. God forbid (literally, in this case, considering Dungy's biblical stance on gay marriage) having an openly-gay player would present "a distraction," which is apparently the worst thing in all of the sports world.

    I liked a Deadspin commenter's take.

    That's how every coach feels. Dungy's anti-Teh Gay is well known, but coaches consider everything that isn't football to be a distraction. They're insane.

    Tony Dungy defended Marvin Harrison and advocated hard for Michael Vick after he got out of prison. But having Michael Sam on his team? That would be a bridge too far.

    And another Deadspin commenter made a great point. (What's the world coming to?)

    The level of hypocrisy is stunning.

    Dungy's full of it, and he'll have to work it out, in full view of the public.

    "I wouldn't have wanted the distraction of playing Jackie Robinson. What if it's not smooth," Tony Dungy

    Dungy is a fucking fraud and has been for a long time.

    Why some football media types think he's Yoda and that his opinions actually hold weight is beyond me.

    Yes, indeed . . . the "Is Jim Caldwell a head coach?" question is going to be resolved in a relatively-short period of time, now . ..

    Why is it hypocrisy? Vick can play. Can Sam?

    If you think Dungy is a fraud you've obviously never covered him.

    I'm fine with that.

    Fuck Tony Dungy.
