Rams coach Jeff Fisher remains angry over an ESPN report that dealt in part with the "showering habits" of defensive end Michael Sam by ESPN reporter Josina Anderson. "I'm extremely disappointed in her piece," Fisher told the Post-Dispatch on Wednesday, not long before the team boarded buses for Lambert Airport and the trip to Miami for Thursday's preseason finale. "I think it's unethical," Fisher continued. "I think it's very, very unprofessional. Not only the piece itself, the content. The manner in which she did it." Fisher said he was made aware of the report Tuesday, has seen the report, and also has seen ESPN's subsequent apology. Fisher did say he appreciated the apology. And on Wednesday, the Rams organization received an additional apology in a phone call from ESPN president John Skipper. "We appreciate John Skipper reaching out to us and apologizing, and their willingness to communicate and work through this with us," Fisher said. But part of the reason Fisher is upset with Anderson, he said, was that she contacted Rams players away from the facility for the story. "We have a media policy, and we're very flexible," Fisher said. "We have open practices. Players are available. We have open locker rooms.
