Deadspin did an AMA (Ask Me Anything) with a top Sports PR guy
 
Here are a couple of tidbits:

LeBron at 19 and Lance Armstrong were the biggest jerks he ever dealt with.

Warrick Dunn, Sean Casey, Ben Gordon, Terrell Owens, Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant are very nice with fans and their personal lives (Owens is a weird one to mention right now).

Cocaine use in UFC and football is fairly widespread.

Closeted athletes hide that stuff even from their PR guys (the most guarded secret of all)

The dumbest thing a client of his has ever done is jerk off on camera and allow a group of women to record him

Steroid usage is higher in high school than the pros

Pros generally go out to bars way less than people of similar age. They just end up calling groupies to their hotel rooms a lot of the time.

90% of pros cheat on their spouses.

A shocking number of coaches' daughters get railed by players on the team.

Too many people in the media promise no negative coverage in return for hanging out/partying with athletes. Calls out Stephen A and WIlbon in particular.

One of his pro wrestler clients banged 5 women in one night.

NBA players are the biggest jerks in pro sports.

Warrick Dunn and Charles Woodson are among the only athletes who run legit charities.

As expected the big name guys in the Olympics don't have that much fun while they are competing. Too much pressure to **** around the first week.


About half his clients smoke weed (less than I would have guessed).

What is the biggest cluster**** you've ever had to clean up for one of your clients?

Most degrading thing a woman has done to get with an athlete?

AnonymousPRGuy @HugoStiglitz 5 hours ago
I watched a woman let five guys *** on her face once in front of the athlete cause he told her she had to in order to sleep with him. He then told her to give her a blow job and get out. I was not one of the five btw

The way ESPN and media on particular hyped LeBron, I wouldn't be surprised. Also, not surprised about the drug use, or the cheating on the wives.

Also, the things girls do for these athletes. :roll:

The only surprising one is the coaches daughter one. If I was a coach and that happened...run until you pass out, torturous practices, then get benched while releasing to the media it's a torn ***hole that's preventing you from playing.

Couple of other things

He thinks NBA and NFL guys do HGH in high school way more than as pros.

Everyone hates Curt Schilling

Loves working with low-profile Olympic medalists

Basically admits to paying off TMZ when his clients get in trouble.

Hates Michael Phelps

No dirt on Tim Tebow. He is genuine.

2004 Carolina Panthers team was on a shit ton of steroids

Pro athlets generally have a high level of respect for fellow athletes in lower-profile sports.

Pro athletes really care about what is said on Sports Center about them.

A-Rod and David Wright have both ****ed sideline reporters covering their teams.

Jay Cutler is a decent guy.

Does not think highly of Erin Andrews.

Aaron Rodgers is a good guy.

What percent of the cash taken by athlete's charities actually go to the charity and what percent goes to their family?

AnonymousPRGuy @When_you_get_the_money_you_get... yesterday SHARE
Depends on the charity. It's case-by-case. Guys like Warrick Dunn run great charities. Charles Woodson too. But the majority are definitely fronts to pay their families.

:facepalm

Do you actually enjoy watching sports anymore?

AnonymousPRGuy @jfaz yesterday
No, I don't

I thought that was a great simple question to ask.

Honestly, this could easily be bullshit and anyone could have made that up.

If it is true though...

This was clearly Dwyane Wade.

Lame, lobbed softball bullshit. This degree of dirt didn't even warrant anonymity.

Guy's a *****.
