Dallas sports anchor Dale Hansen found himself in the national spotlight when he delivered the perfect takedown of Michael Sam haters after the University of Missouri football player came out in February. The WFAA anchor became an instant legend and was even flown to LA to be on The Ellen Show, and now that Sam’s been drafted he’s back with some more choice words.

LGBT activists and others around the country rejoiced when Sam was the 249th pick of this year’s NFL draft. Sam was elated and celebrated by kissing his boyfriend on national TV (here’s how to explain that to your kids.) The talented player was scooped up by the St. Louis Rams, but Dale Hansen has a bone to pick: “248 [players] better than the SCC’s defensive player of the year? There’s just no way.”

Someone go hit on Dale Hansen! He’s earned it.
