I wish him luck, but exactly why is this news???

By the way, he lost me when he agreed in advance to do a documentary for Oprah, and his actions at his house when he got drafted were clearly staged (kissing the boyfriend, shoving cake in each other's faces, etc.). It just looked pre-planned, and that turned me off (no pun intended).

Exactly why is this news? I'm happy for the guy, but the obsessive coverage of one player, strictly for non-football issues, is silly. Stick to football. Leave the rest to another news outlet.
