Mike Silver is milking this shit for all it's worth.
And it doesn't help when the owner comes out and says he'll do his own investigation on the matter.
Make no mistake, I think what Ireland did was despicable. I couldn't give two shits if a player's mother blows giraffes in some kind of underground sex circus in Bombay. If a fucker is big, has 4.3 speed, and can catch anything thrown his way, I want that guy on my team, regardless of whether or not his father molests baby penguins and then lights them on fire. The other side of that spectrum would be Ted Ginn Jr. Our front office loved his family. So much so that they drafted them too! How did that shit work out for us? So, yea, stupid question that has no relevance to football.
But... the dude personally apologized, Dez accepted said apology, the owner is looking into it, and I can guarantee you Ireland's future player interviews are going to be less, let's say, douchey. This appears to be a league-wide issue, and it was bound to come out. Unfortunately, because Jesus hates you, it's the Dolphins that are caught up in this thing.
But holy asscunts, people. The man asked a dumb question. That's all that happened. Mike Silver is not Robert Redford and this is not some Watergate-like evil conspiracy that has just been unearthed and must be unremittingly exposed to the unwashed masses until our brains explode. Surely there's other shit to talk about. Surely by now Ben Roethlisberger has gone and shown his dick to another girl.
