February 12, 2014
The Canadian Football League has fined two players for making inappropriate comments about openly gay NFL prospect Michael Sam. Montreal Alouettes wide receiver Arland Bruce and Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive tackle Bryant Turner Jr. were penalized for their postings on social media. Bruce misspelled the word "gay" in his message, which urged Sam to "man up" and get on his knees and "submit to God fully."
