Calgary Stampeders wide receiver Maurice Price caused a stir Monday with a negative tweet about Michael Sam, and the team isn't happy about it.
The Stampeders issued a statement condemning Price's actions.
“The Calgary Stampeders are outraged by the offensive comments made today in tweets from Maurice Price's account, The comments are repugnant and in no way reflect the organization's views or values. The matter will now be dealt with internally.”
Price tweeted: "My faith won't allow me to ACCEPT what took place over the weekend! Sorry, NOT sorry! #AdamAndEve #NotAdamAndAdam."
In the since-deleted tweet, Price was referring to Sam, who is openly gay, being drafted by the St. Louis Rams of the NFL. When Sam recieved news he was drafted, he gave his boyfriend a kiss on national television.
Sam was picked by the Rams in the seventh round of the NFL draft Saturday, becoming the first openly gay player drafted by a pro football team.
While the Stampeders stated they would deal with Price internally, the CFL may still levy a punishment for the tweet.
