DOLPHINS STRIKE BACK: SHOW DEZ BRYANT THEIR PIMP HAND

April 30, 2010

The Dez Bryant “Was-your-momma-a-whore?” story just won’t die.

Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland admits he asked the rookie wide receiver if his mother was a prostitute in a predraft interview. However, following calls for Ireland’s suspension or firing and accusations by the NFLPA about racial profiling, there is a new version of the Ireland/Bryant encounter making the rounds on the Internet-one that is more sympathetic to the Dolphins GM.

According to SI.com, Ireland did ask Bryant if his mother was a prostitute. However, the question came in the following context:

Ireland: What did your father do for a living?

Bryant: “My dad was a pimp.”

Ireland: “What did your mom do?”

Bryant: “She worked for my dad.”

Ireland: “Your mom was a prostitute?…”

SI claims to have “two sources familiar with the situation”which they used for the rebuttal story defending Ireland. SI also made DAMN sure they had an African-American writer (Jim Trotter) do the story entitled, “Ireland’s logical follow-up question to Bryant not worthy of outrage.”

Although SI has multiple sources for its story, since it was Ireland and Bryant in the room, we know whose version of the story is being spun in this current re-telling. Hint: It isn’t Bryant’s.

Plus, there’s still the possibility that this new Ireland version emerging is a complete lie. Bryant swears he never told the Dolphins his father was a “pimp.”

ACTUAL PHOTO OF BRETT FAVRE’S ANKLE FOLLOWING NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

Stop me if you’ve heard this before

ESPN is reporting that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre is wavering on his decision to return to the club for the 2010 season or simply retire. That’s not exactly news. What ESPN did find out is that Favre must undergo ankle surgery to play this upcoming season. Favre injured the ankle in a loss to the New Orleans Saints in the 2009 NFC Championship Game.

Favre’s ankle is reportedly still swollen three months following the NFC Championship.

* Update: Following the ESPN story by Ed Werder, Favre revealed on his personal website that the ankle procedure he would have to undergo is “minor.” After consulting famed orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, Favre says a major ankle operation is unnecessary and his surgery would be “not debilitating.” However, Favre did not reveal whether or not he is returning to the Vikings for the 2010 season.

WHY IS NED COLLETTI HATING ON MATT KEMP?

April 30, 2010

 

MATT KEMP

Maybe Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti is just mad that HE doesn’t have an internationally famous recording star girlfriend lusting after him.

For whatever reason, Colletti has been on a rampage lately attacking Matt Kemp and seemingly blaming the young outfielder for the Dodgers slow start this season. Following a doubleheader sweep by the Mets earlier in the week, Colletti singled Kemp out for criticism saying,

“Some guys, I guess, think that they’re better than they are. The baserunning’s below average. The defense is below average. Why is it? Because he (Kemp) got a new deal? I can’t tell you.”

The Dodgers have made the postseason two years in a row, advancing all the way to the National League Championship Series in both 2008 and 2009. At just 24, Kemp had a great season in ’09 hitting .297 with 26 home runs and 101 RBI. He stole 34 bases and scored 97 runs. Kemp also won a Gold Glove for his defense and finished 10th in voting for the 2009 National League Most Valuable Player award. He was obviously an integral part of the Dodgers success and was rewarded with a two-year contract extension this January.

This season Kemp is hitting .290 with seven homers. He is currently on pace to hit 52 home runs and drive in 147 runs and steal 88 bases. All while playing Gold Glove defense Yeah, OBVIOUSLY Matt Kemp is the number one problem for the Dodgers.

Colletti is furious that the Dodgers are 8-14 and currently in last place in the N.L. West. They are 6 games behind the seemingly-pathetic San Diego Padres  and their $38 million payroll.

Suddenly having to defend himself following the Colletti meltdown, Kemp has taken the high road and refused to lash back through the media. The two did have a brief meeting on Wednesday.

AL DAVIS REALLY NEEDS TO GO AWAY

April 29, 2010

JAMARCUS RUSSELL

All week there have been stories that the Oakland Raiders were going to cut former number one pick/quarterback bust JaMarcus Russell. The rotund Russell was the first overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft but has been a miserable failure for the Raiders. For the first time ever, Russell has started to put up big numbers. Unfortunately, they’re on a scale.

With the recent acquisition of Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell, and the signing of Carrie Prejean  boytoy Kyle Boller to go along with incumbent Raiders starter Bruce Gradkowski, it seemed inevitable that Russell was toast. The Raiders would also save $6.45 million (to offset the $40 million they’ve already pissed away on Russell) by cutting him NOW.

However, releasing Russell would require one thing-for Raiders owner Al Davis to admit he was wrong. It now appears that may not happen. Fanhouse.com reports that Raiders minicamp begins tomorrow and the club still doesn’t know if they’re cutting Russell. Actually, make that DAVIS hasn’t let anyone know if he’s cutting Russell.

Apparently, Davis isn’t quite ready to bounce Russell and admit that he made such a disatrous draft pick. Whether or not Davis faces reality and cuts his losses with Russell now or later, there are already articles speculating if Russell was the WORST draft pick in NFL history. That’s right, worse than Ryan Leaf.

Ouch!

DOLPHINS GM IS A DICK

April 28, 2010

JEFF IRELAND

NFL front office types are out of control. They are so worried about the “character” of potential players they choose in the draft that they are rapidly losing their own.

Yahoo! Sports recently ran a story which revealed that one NFL executive actually asked rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant of Oklahoma State if his mother was a prostitute. Tuesday, Miami Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland admitted he was the NFL exec who asked Bryant if his mother was a ho. Bryant apparently resisted the urge to punch Ireland in the face. After first trying to cover his ass, Ireland has since apologized for the incident. Some columnists are now calling for Ireland to be suspended.

For the record, Bryant’s mother was never a prostitute. Ms. Bryant says she dealt drugs in her youth and is currently a lesbian.

Bryant wasn’t the only prospective player asked a stupid question by an NFL club. Tampa Bay reportedly asked Florida State db Myron Rolle why he “abandoned” his team to pursue a Rhodes Scholarship in England.  Stanford’s Toby Gerhart was asked if he felt “entitled” because he’s a white running back.
