    Dez Bryant, The Miami Dolphins, and the is your mother a escort question.

    Some of you may of heard of this, the whole story in short is that, in a pre-draft interview, between the Miamai Dolphins and Dez bryant, dolphins GM Jeff ireland asked Dez if his mother was a escort. I can kind of see Why Jeff ireland would ask dez that question, in the NFl you have players looking for any advantage they can get , albeit  mental or physical. And for EX: i wouldnt put it past someone like Joey porter(now with the cardinals) to try and get to Dez by  barking similar Remarks to him on the football field. the Football field is like vegas, what happens there stays there, so theres no reason some one wouldnt do this to dez. I feel Ireland was just trying to get a feel for how Dez would React ,if in a big game and someone(like joey porter) said somethings similair to what ireland said. How do you guys feel about this, was Ireland wrong to ask Dez this or can you see where he was coming from?????

    I've heard of this stuff, not just in the NFL but in real life, interviews, personality tests etc.  Probably just trying to see if he would overreact, or start a fight.  I understand the point of seeing if someone has thin skin but in general I think being straight with someone is best.  Whenever I've encountered this sort of thing I've gave them the answers they wanted but lost respect for them.  There's something childish about trying to play junior pshchologist, and it's usually transparent. 

    Just ask a straight question, don't try to outsmart me.  If you want adults, treat people like adults.  If you want children give them transparent questions and hoops to jump through.

    If I was buying a $40-50 million home, yacht, plane, plot of land, stock, anything of any value that I expect to grow through time, I would like to know everything there possibly is to know.

    I would certainly ask the question just to see the reaction because that reaction would be indicative of this player's attidude, mental stability, and intelligence. What will Dez do when another player on the field talks about his family? Is he going to throw punches, spit in his face, step on his head with cleats on?

    Over-sensitive people need to get over it. If getting millions of dollars for playing football, even before you step foot on the field, means being insulted by a question or two, so be it. It's a grown man's league.

    In Response to Re: Dez Bryant, The Miami Dolphins, and the is your mother a escort question.:
    Ireland is certainly free to ask any question he likes, just as any self-respecting athlete is free to terminate the interview and refuse to ever play for any franchise that would employ a maggot who would ask that kind of question. Having said all that, this story doesn't sound very credible to me.

    Ireland has apologized for asking the question, so there's no doubt the story is true.

    I see what you're saying, he has the right to ask anything he wants.  My point is as a leader you have to have some credibility to be effective, and when people percieve you as someone who plays games, and thinks they are smarter than they are you lose credibility.  There are personality tests that tell you everything you need to know, those tests are written by professionals and Dez probably already took one.  It's like if he tried to find his IQ by asking him when the war of 1812 was.  It's just amatuer psyhchology and playing games.  I'm sure  if you think of any good boss you've ever had they were straight with people, I've had the other type also- people thought of them as a joke.  But like I said, he can do whatever he wants, but it probably didn't tell him anything about Dez because nobody would start a fight over that anyway.  Dez may still be thin skinned, and now just think Ireland's an A-hole.  All the Miami players would think he's an A-hole also, so what's the point really.

    These guys make up the most outrageous questions to ask these players. The answer isn't as important as the attitude. They want to see if they can get a rise out of them or any attitude at all.
    Toby Gehrhart had a coach ask him, "Does it bother you that you are white and you play a black man's position".
    I think it was Tebow that was asked, "If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you want to be". I wouldn't be surprised if they break out the Rorschach test for these guys sometimes. They're just trying to push buttons and see what happens.

    Look..I see a fox. What does that mean.

    Absolutely. I understand where you're coming from as well. By no means am I defending Ireland but to me it's a black-and-white issue. If you're making an investment, you ought to have the right to ask whatever you want. Last time I checked $30-50 million is a TON of money for a kid with a checkered past so to speak. On that same note, I expect NFL management to be intelligent regardless of which franchise they own/manage. As intelligent, mature, wealthy people, you're supposed to know the proper, grown-up ways of saying/asking something that could be offensive in a less offensive, fluffy way. Basically, you can any question to anyone if you knew how to phrase it properly. For Ireland to just come out and ask the way he did, I think it's definitely wrong. But the fact that he was thinking it or trying to find a way to ask it nicely, I don't mind that at all because he's been entrusted to invest Ross' money in the best way to deliver championships to Miami. Because it's a what-you've-done-for-me-lately business, everyone's under pressure to perform whether it's on the field or up in the box.

    This kind of has something to do with what ewhite just posted but is a little different.  stare at the 4 dots in the middle of the picture below for 30 seconds then, look at a flat wall surface( prefrably in a somewhat dark room) and tell me who you see.

    As long as you recognize him for the fraudulent hero/ Murderer he is that's fine with me..It was actually pretty funny because I just got through reading an article on the real story of Che last week and all the lies that have been spread to build up his "legend".

    I work in Boston and have to take the Orange line in a few times a week. Now that summer is coming I will see his face on a T-shirt at least once a week. A lot of african american kids wearing them. They have no idea what a racist this guy was and what he thought of black people.You're right about Santana too..I have seen him and other rockers wearing that shirt too. People try to talk him up like he was a military genius when in fact he was an incompetent that rode Castro's shirt tails to fame. Castro actually pretty much sent him into exile to start revolutions in S. America because he got sick and tired of his Cr@ap.
