Mike and Mike on Michael Sam

Mike Pesca and Mike Francesa debate whether the openly gay NFL player is a “distraction.”

Last week, former NFL coach Tony Dungy said he wouldn’t have drafted Michael Sam—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.” Sports radio yakker Mike Francesa defended Dungy against charges of homophobia, saying that the coach’s detractors were, among other things, “dumb.” On this week’s episode of Hang Up and Listen, Mike Pesca debated Francesa on this topic, playing the role of … Mike Francesa.
