Former Miami Dolphin lineman Jonathan Martin met with the NFL for 7 hours on Friday to give testimony about a bullying complaint he made against former Dolphin guard Richie Incognito, Jr.
Whatever the outcome of the investigation, Martin’s reputation as a NFL player — and as a man — will forever be tarnished.
An athlete who plays at the competitive level of the NFL is expected to be a macho Man among men who oozes testosterone through every pore. But, according to one sign that was held aloft on ESPN’s College Gameday Show for millions to see, Martin is one big pu$$y.
Rap mogul Jay Z has all the right connections. The self-professed “business, man” is now licensed by the NBA to represent NBA athletes, according to a report on ESPN. The news was first reported by Sports Business Journal.
Jay Z, who has zero experience as a sports manager, signed NY Yankee Robinson Cano and NY Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz after forming Roc Nation sports management agency with his business partner Juan Perez (pictured left). He later signed WNBA player Skylar Diggins. But professional athletes are not rappers, and insiders are questioning whether Jay Z has the skills to negotiate major sports contracts and endorsements for his clients.
Socialite and reality TV star Khloe Kardashian and her NBA star husband Lamar Odom are accused of running a charity scam.
According to an investigation by ESPN, eight charities connected with sports stars have allegedly misused the cash they rake in.
An ESPN analyst sparked controversy yesterday when he called Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III a “cornball brother” who dates white women and votes Republican.

Dallas Cowboys star Dez Bryant thought his domestic assault case for slapping his own mother would disappear. But Dallas County district attorney Craig Watkins confirmed to ESPNdallas.com on Wednesday that his office plans to file Class A misdemeanor charges against the troubled player.
A man who would slap his own mother is the lowest scum of the earth.
Those of you who get your news from conventional sources (rather than the blogs) already know about the brewing scandal surrounding ESPN and one of its reporters.
According to online reports, ESPN’s Erin Andrews, a wildly popular, curvaceous, flaxen haired reporter was filmed surreptitiously through holes drilled into the walls of at least two hotel rooms.
The pervert posted footage of Andrews beautifying herself and stepping out of the shower, etc., on YouTube.
TMZ.com believes the culprit is a member of ESPN’s own production crew who was familiar with Erin’s travel itinerary.
In all, there are said to be 6 videos filmed of Erin in different hotel rooms around the country. The police are actively investigating the case.
This puts ESPN in a very bad position. And as you can imagine, the sports network doesn’t wish to draw anymore attention to the entire sordid affair as it relentlessly hunts down the sicko, while pretending not to know he’s one of their own.
So when the NY Post ran 3 images taken from one of the grainy videos in its paper yesterday, ESPN’s top brass took immediate action.
According to the AJC, ESPN banned all NY Post reporters from appearing as guests on its network. ESPN regularly uses Post reporters as guests to provide sports analysis on its shows.
“While we understand the Post’s decision to cover this as a news story, their running photos obtained in such a fashion went well beyond the boundaries of common decency in the interest of sensationalism,” said ESPN senior vice president of communications Chris LaPlaca in a statement released Wednesday night.
