Mizzou TE Eric Waters calls out ‘proud’ Sam teammates on Twitter

Eric Waters (right) tweeted that many of the same teammates offering public support of Michael Sam had spoken badly of him behind his back.



Using Twitter, tight end Eric Waters offered a viewpoint that questioned many of his teammates’ sincerity on social media Sunday.

Waters, a senior last season, was also one of Sam’s roommates. So he is closer to this situation than most.

Predictably, Waters’ tweet attracted some attention.

Waters, though, didn’t back down. He followed it up with two more tweets.
