"Is your mom a whore a Dez?"

None of what you said has anything to do with Dez Bryant. Dez Bryant's mother may or may not being a former prostitute should literally have zero bearing on drafting him. I absolutely cannot believe this isn't a bigger story.

yes it did, what I said relates to employers having a bias toward employees with family issues...

It isn't that hard to understand really, they just wanted to know if he is currently struggling with family issues...

they want his head to be in football, and no where else...


and again, I agree the questioning seems out of line...

people all over the net I am ready already think that Dez is a criminal, and he has no criminal history whatsoever...no drug history, nothing...

He had an issue with poor attendence at meeting, and has poor grammar, so somehow that translates to being a thug to people...

First of all thug is a code word nowadays and we all know what it stands for.

He might not be the smartest guy, but to completely disrespect him like that is unacceptable.

That GM should be fired. **** a fine. Fire his b!tch ass.

Default Re: Dolphins GM asked Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute

this has made a decent amount of news today on ESPN...

although they are pretty much saying the same things I am...when you make a multi-million dollar investment you want to know everythin about that investment...

they said the Giants once asked a player if he likes "tall women" on a questionare...kinda strange

the guy has made a public apology to Dez...

ESPN says that these kinda of things are issues taht GMs want to know about, but they should have tried to find a better, more tasteful way to go about it.


If they were to draft Dez, and pay him millions, and then he goes on to have all sorts of issues with his family to the point that it affected his play, the fans would be outraged at the GMs for signing him and paying him without looking into his background...you know?

"How could you sign him without knowing this!!!...you guys are so incompetent!!!...what do I pay you for!!!???....FIRED!!!"

Sure he made an apology...after the story broke on ESPN. That shit was just PR damage control and everyone knows it. An apology like that means nothing.

Default Re: Dolphins GM asked Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute

I wonder if maybe Dez wishes he just never brought this up in the first place...

Now he has the public wondering about his mother...

also, I am 100% sure I am gonna have to hear about his mother being a whore from Eagle/Skins/Giants fans for at least this season, maybe his whole career...

If you had a Job Interview and the employeer asked you that would you make a a scene? HELL NO!
Just because he is a million dollar athlete they should be held to a higher regard?
His mom had him at 15. He had every right to ask question about his mom

He had zero right to ask if his mom was or is a prostitute. You're a bigger idiot than Ireland.

What kind of problems could it pose? You hear all the time of athletes who have mothers who were crack addicts when they were growing up or alcoholics or whatever. What kind of family issues is he going to have? As soon as he signs the check his mother's prostitute days are over and she's living in a nice house in the burbs and all that good stuff. It's not like "Well it's a risk to draft this kid. If his mother is killed by her pimp he might be away from the team for a while and we can't have that."

I made it clear from the get go I thought it was wrong...Dez is in my f*ckin avy for f*ck's sake...

I just get why an employer would ask personal questions, it happens all the time, not just in the NFL but other places.

really dude?

what kind of problems could his mother being a prostitute pose for him?

Dez's mother was 15 years old when she had him...and improsoned for drug charges...(damn, I just realized his mother isn't that much older than me...lol)...

obviously his mother being involved in "dirt" like that could cause potential problems from Dez...

you might as well ask, "what difference does it make if she is kills 10 kids and jumps off a building?...that has nothing to do with Dez playing in the NFL"

Default Re: Dolphins GM asked Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute

Did ya'll see the WHOLE story? During the meeting, Ireland asked Bryant -- during a talk about Bryant's upbringing and relationship with family members --- what his father did for a living when Bryant was growing up, which apparently prompted this exchange:

Bryant: "My dad was a pimp."

Ireland: "What did your mom do [for a living]?"

Bryant: "She worked for my dad."

Ireland: "Your mom was a prostitute?"

Bryant: "No, she wasn't a prostitute."


YET AGAIN, a story blown way out of proportion and taken out of context, but half of the fault is on Dez's shoulders since he just said "They asked if my mom was a prostitute" LIAR!!!

Dez denies that is how that conversation went down...

apparently the NFL is going to launch a full investigation...and Dez says he wishes that this whole ordeal would just go away, he doesn't want anymore attention being brought to this...just wants to play football...



BUT...that's right Cowboy haters...our players are the son's of PIMPS!...

Of course he'll deny that's how the conversation went down.....otherwise its all on his shoulders lol.

I agree. I wish it would all end. I hate when stupid things like this are the focus on ESPN. I wish, and I bet Dez wishes now, that he wouldnt have even brought it up.
