    Your article re: Tiger Woods being a Ryder Cup pick is flawed. The record you posted is incorrect and was his record prior to the 2012 RC. His current record is 13-17-3 and (if not mistaken) Woods has only been on one winning team. So much for "dynamic personality". To contend that Woods can win at Valhalla because he won there 14 years ago is an assumptive leap without much supporting evidence. Bear in mind 14 years ago Woods drove the ball better than anyone and scrambled better than anyone and putted lights out. Today none of those things exist. Given just these issues, how can you justify picking Woods over 58 more qualified players ? In sports it's not what you were, it's what you are.

    i see you turned the comments off, on the michael sams story. why are all the media sources shoving this down our throats, but very few of them have the backbone to allow us to respond. and for the record, people who hate this, and who think it is disgusting, ARE NOT HOMOPHOBIC. they are decent people who know the difference between right and wrong. and if you want to put the whole, who says what is right or wrong question out there, i will not ignorantly bite on the religious, or freedoms argument, which are easy targets. i will use the one target that is unquestionable, biology. it is biologically wrong. period! we are not afraid of homosexuality, we are just disgusted by it, and sick of hollywood and the american media shoving it in our faces, and those of our innocent children. you are all shameful sellouts.

    Chuck Gorton nailed it. How dare anyone tell a father that he is a bigot for expressing his opinion about his son's decision to be a homosexual. It's a family matter that they have to deal with internally and I'm sure it was a shock to his father. Nobody should cast a stone until they themselves have been in that same situation.
    If Sam Jr was truly brave, he would have told his father face to face. The way he went about telling him was cowardly. It surely makes one wonder if it wasn't purely for publicity.
    and yes, what about the comments??? I surely hope that wasn't omitted intentionally.

    I think it's real chicken-shyt that BR disabled the comments for all of the Sam "Gay is Great" stories. Everyday I get to read all the racist...sexist...classist statements in the comments sections of each story and apparently that's okay with BR, but heaven forbid a homosexual read something that does not praise their lifestyle choices.

    Do you really think it was necessary to put the tweet from the idiot calling Sams dad a bigot? Why do the gays expect everyone to just suddenly LOVE the idea of same sex relationships? There's been thousands of years of religious beliefs and many will choose God's word over 'progressive ideas'. That's it. For Sam to not even have enough COURAGE to go tell his father to his face is very telling. Oh yes he's so courageous to 'come out' but I'll just text dad about it... and then you post some idiots tweet calling his father a bigot? This intolerance to people's long lived religous beliefs for the sake of patting gays on the back is disgusting. It screams the opposite of what gays are trying to say they deserve. Tolerance. They only want tolerance to what they want, but to hell with everyone elses. Frankly, I see Sam's 'coming out' as publicity and not courage. Your lack of understanding of that Sam's lack of decency to tell his father personally is disgusting.

    Hey Matt, just wanted to say that your article about Michael Sam coming out was great. A lot of interesting points proving why Sam's move was an extremely brave one. Excellent job.
