Tony Dungy is one of the greatest and most well liked coaches in NFL history, but not even he is able to avoid inserting his foot directly into his mouth this making him look like an idiot.
Dungy has been making headlines recently thanks to his incredibly thinly thought out comments about St. Louis Rams player Michael Sam, who not only plays football but is also gay. Dungy, who came out in support of Sam before the draft has burped and spit up all over that support by saying Sam wouldn’t have been drafted by a Dungy coached team because of the distraction he would present.
I wonder what that distraction might be.
Check out the video below in which Keith Olbermann, in only a way Olbermann can, incinerates Dungy for his moronic comments about Michael Sam and the ‘distraction’ he presents.
It’s not just that Dungy said what he said, it’s the fact that Dungy is the one saying it. Tony Dungy, the man that nobody found anything to dislike about him, has now given people a reason to think differently about him which is a large part of why this situation is so unfortunate.
Stupid people have said stupid things about Michael Sam, we just didn’t expect one of those stupid people to be Tony Dungy.
