In particular, we looked at what football fans thought would happen to Michael Sam, whether the fact that he came out would affect where a team might select him. Overwhelmingly, 65% of football fans thought his sexual orientation would have no impact on where the defensive lineman from Missouri would be selected. Only 25% though it would make teams less likely to pick him.</p><p> Wed, 14 May 2014 19:50:00 +0000 Keith Strudler 90438 at http://wamc.org "Monsters: The 1985 Chicago Bears And The Wild Heart Of Football" By Rich Cohen http://wamc.org/post/monsters-1985-chicago-bears-and-wild-heart-football-rich-cohen <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">For </span><a href="http://authorrichcohen.com" style="line-height: 1.5;">Rich Cohen</a><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and millions of other fans, the 1985 Chicago Bears were more than a football team- they were the greatest football team ever.

It’s the kind of number that would make Powerball ticket sales so crazy you couldn’t leave a 7-11 in under an hour. It’s the working budget of some decent sized companies, and almost enough to fund a presidential run. Wed, 04 Sep 2013 19:50:00 +0000 Keith Strudler 72873 at http://wamc.org
