Dwayne Bowe lets a rather large cat out of the bag | ProFootballTalk.com (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/05/19/dwayne-bowe-lets-a-rather-large-cat-out-of-the-bag/)

Not sure if anyone has seen this or not but why would he bring this up? just stupid!

bah, like it or not, this stuff happens in all the sports. I had a friend that spent a short stint with the Cincinnati Reds and he said it was like being a rock star with all the women that wanted to be with him, even though he knew he would be back in the minors in a week.

ESPN The Magazine has a feature called "Postcards from the Edge." In it, pro athletes provide anecdotes regarding their lives.

In the latest issue, which hits newsstands Friday, Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe possibly says too much.

"My rookie year, we were playing in San Diego," Bowe says. "You hear stories about groupies hanging out in hotel lobbies, but some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room. The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it importing."

(The federal government possibly would call it something else.)

"Younger guys don't have the money to do it," Bowe added. "Anyway, these girls had the whole top floor. They know everything about us -- first and last names, sisters and brothers, salary. This one girl was talking to me like she'd known me for years. 'Hey, D-Bowe, how's Grandma?' I'm like, 'How do you know my grandma?' She knew that I talk about her every time I'm interviewed for a story.

"I told her I had a girlfriend, but she didn't care. She was wearing my jersey, sitting in my lap, making it look like we knew each other. Then she took a picture and put it on Facebook. That almost got me in trouble."

Bowe may have avoided trouble that time. But we've got a feeling that trouble will be finding him now.

Yeah. Probably not the smartest thing to tell folks.:D

not the first time this story has came out just different player and team.and if you are a single man making that kind of money. why not see how many fish will take the bait.stupid for bowe to put in an article though especially when there is not much news in the nfl for espn to cover this time of year.maybe kc will get a mention on nfl live now(i know not the right kind). i am so sick of them covering the cowboys,steelers,patriots,colts and that sissy tebow come on mix it up espn

i completely agree that it happens all the time and dont blame him for it all. i would do the same thing if in that situation but i wouldnt talk about it. theres probably quite a bit of former teammates pissed off with him.

Look, I think obviously it happens. But with Big Ben getting suspended for four games when no crime was charged? And Dwane already suspended for substance abuse? I wouldn't be shocked if he is in trouble by the Commish...this is going to get national attention because of Tiger, Ben Rothlesburger, Lawrence Taylor, etc...Just wait. Shut up Dwane. And catch your passes.

Sigh.

This to me is not a "big breaking news" story,I mean it is not like they are importing women from Iraq or something. Girls want to hang out with Athletes, that is nothing new. It is not like anyone was forced to go. D Bowe needs to focus on catching the ball.

:efpge: you are absolutely right, we as fans don't get a rats @### but it is a knock on the CHIEFS players, coaches and ownership which may cause some locker room tension. personaly someone should just give him a smack upside the head and tell him to just shut up and play ball.

I don't think it will blow over. Dumbo just lost respect from some of his teammate for letting that cat out of the bag. Brian Waters already said this would be handled in the locker room.

He was already on thin ice from his lack of performace last off season that got him benched and then suspended later in the season. He has to be under the microscope, specially considering he dropped a bunch of balls in OTA.s.

This kind of stuff, just adds to the frustrations of the coaching staff the could ultimatley end his career in KC.

your saying if he gets suspended or causes a distraction that is no big deal? well thats just moronic.. moral of the story is this doesnt need to be brought up.. how many teammates or ex-teammates just got thrown under the bus or now has to deal with their wife nagging at them for this

What's to be suspended for? According to the story, Bowe didn't partake in anything and he didn't name anyone who did.

Poor decision to speak of this to the press. And a slight chance of causing minor, temporary issues in the lockerrom. But not a damn thing to be in trouble from the league for as far as I can see.

What are you going to suspend him for.

Its only a distraction if you let it be. He talked about what happened one time. Last time I checked, telling stories about the past isn't a crime.

Well, loose lips sink ships. Distractions to a player can happen from family issues. Now you may have wives wondering about it, and questioning their husbands about this, distraction, even if a player never had anything to do with it! Still can causes a problem at home, so a distraction from the team, causes problems with teammates! DB better close his lips, and learn to hang on to the ball! He has a lot to prove yet!

You are so wrong here, go back and read his comments, then put your self in as an older member of the team, your wife reads this, and she is wondering, just who is the older team member, and if it is you, how do you know where to get these girls, and why! But then it may have been lj, that did it.

True, it doesn't take proof in today's society; merely an accusation or the appearance of impropriety to irreparably damage a reputation.

True. I suppose there is a better than slight chance of issues with teammates. But probably still minor issues overall. As far as teammates holding any kind of grudge against Bowe.

Look at it from Bowe's point of view. (Whether it did or didn't happen is irrelevant, but where there is smoke there is usually fire.) He claimed he had a girlfriend and wanted nothing to do with what was going on and many of you have said a bunch of other athletes are going to have hell to pay with their significant others. Sounds like a trust and communication breakdown on the other end to me. If I had teammates putting me in situations like that without my consent I wouldn't have much trust or respect for them. Bowe isn't the only one causing potential locker room stress, the people that initiated the mess and the people that allowed it to happen are equally responsible.

On a side note, I'm not sure why people are this concerned anyway. It's not like it's a shocker. Everybody knows successful men in the national spotlight get all the women they could ever want, Bowe just repeated what's been said throughout history. Big deal.

I developed what I said earlier from your article...

I'm just asking for a little empathy because Bowe isn't the bad guy that most people are making him out to be. If an athlete wants to import women, fine, but keep it personal. If you get the entire team involved you have to expect that not everybody is going to go along with it and eventually the story is going to get out.

Seems extremely stupid to me and makes the players and organization look like crap! I'm begging them to trade this guy! He will end up letting his mouth overload his *ss before to long. Let him take his PED's, big mouth, lack of catching ability/ work ethic and whiney attitude somewhere else. He is no help to our team! Didn't work for LJ why should we allow it from this clown?

I keep watching the news and all the media can do is drag this thing out even longer. Sure he said something dumb, but why is he being stuck with it 3 years later?

Whats done is done, and done over 3 years ago. The media needs to cut this BS out. They shouldn't allow media in the locker room if they are creating controversy.

Lets drop this incident smack down in a different situation. Pretend a good ol' middle aged, married, God fearing man is out with his buddies for a night. They decide to surprise him with a hooker. Chances are he's not going to be happy about it and he's not going to keep mum. Somebody is going to find out and word is going to get out so that everybody involved is going to have to face the consequences. If you don't want to deal with the consequences, you don't hope everybody holds their tongue, you don't do it in the first place.

The primary difference is that Bowe has to answer to the national media. It's not like he went out of his way to crucify his teammates. He didn't even drop names. Somebody asked and he slipped. The way he said it made it sound like it wasn't a big deal. I'll be the first to say that admitting something like that to a public news outlet isn't very tactful, but mistakes happen. The solution isn't to ship off every single loose lipped player, if that were the case there wouldn't be a Kansas City Chiefs. The solution is to "handle it internally" and stock the roster with character guys so that these incidents can be avoided, both of which are already happening.

Bowe was suspended because of a diuretic he used. For all we know he was trying to get on Haley's good graces and maintain weight. Given that he's still on the roster we should be fairly confident that's the case. His mouth isn't big. I'm beginning to think you didn't actually read his interview, if you had, you'd see that it really isn't. Plus, he's been avoiding the media, he was nowhere to be found after OTA's today unlike LJ who would use that as venue to cause more problems. His attitude isn't awful, he may have been somewhat of a diva, though most reports claim that the new brass fixed that just like they're fixing DJ's. He doesn't lack catching ability, he lacks consistency. Go watch some of the games last year. Heck, I was sitting not more than 100 feet away of his TD catch against Sandy where he was falling out of the end zone, I'm pretty sure it made ESPN's top plays too. He had one of the best rookie seasons in the history of the league and a solid second year all with a revolving door of mediocre quarterbacks. Then we traded away Tony, adopted a new offensive scheme right before the season started, brought in a new quarterback without the means to allow him to be confident let alone successful. Disaster was a given after that.

Now we've got a decent number 2, a legitimate running game, an improved line and hopefully a safety valve/possession receiver(s) in form of McCluster, Urban, Moeaki and maybe even Cottam or Pope. We've got a new coordinator who is going to get the best from his players, we've got an excited team and an excited coach whereas last year we heard nothing except how fractured this team was and how much of a project it was to work with. Before the 2009 season the sky was the limit with Bowe, he was put in a position to fail last year. Deal him to another team and you can have fun every Sunday witnessing the birth of a superstar.

I agree that Bowe has had, somewhat, of a tough road his first few years in the league. What concerns me is that he does tend to run his mouth a bit. Dont get me wrong! I love the guy and his potential! Although, his mouth was not nipped in the bud from his rookie year! When you come out of college and while in your first camp or during a great rookie season, cant remember when, you break out with the D-Bowe Show? Someone should have sat him down and told him "prove yourself first then you can talk smack"! Miles Austin took every advantage of his season after how many years on the practice squad? I never heard him talking smack! I dont even remember him talking anything after dropping 200+ yards on us. I dont remember Tony Gonzales talking anything until he proved himself. Wheres Kellen Winslow jr now? He talked all kinds of crap that he was better than Tony and everyone else. I could go on with more examples but I digress! :lol: Again, dont get me wrong! I want the D-BowetoShow this season! Not just for my sake, but for the fans, the team and his self! Show us before you talk! please? jmo:bananen_smilies046:

Before the 2009 season the sky was the limit with Bowe, he was put in a position to fail last year. Deal him to another team and you can have fun every Sunday witnessing the birth of a superstar.

Here is what we KNOW as FACT and all that matters.

D-Bowe was benched last year because he was not performing and dropped a lot of passes in pre-season. Haley was very upset last off season with the amount of dropped balls. There was articles stating that Haley was not impressed with Bowe show for showing off after finally catching a ball after two drops in a row. It was clear that Bowe thinks very very very highly of himself just as you do, and wasn't putting in the work to become the elite player he COULD be.

He eventually made it back as the starting WRl mostly because there was no other options.

FACT he was suspended four games.

FACT he was the #2 receiver in the NFL for dropped passes even after sitting out 4 games for his suspension and basically did not playing the first week.

FACT he was the #2 receiver in the NFL for dropped passes in 2008.

These Facts are from independent firms keeping track of passes they believe should have been caught. From what I heard, the Cheifs believe the stats are higher. The entire team dropped closer to 30 more passes in 2009. I am sure the sure handed Bowe played a part of that.

I really think this could be Bowe's last year as a Chief if he does not find humility and works on his game instead of his flex after catching a pass.

Now we've got a decent number 2, a legitimate running game, an improved line and hopefully a safety valve/possession receiver(s) in form of McCluster, Urban, Moeaki and maybe even Cottam or Pope. We've got a new coordinator who is going to get the best from his players, we've got an excited team and an excited coach whereas last year we heard nothing except how fractured this team was and how much of a project it was to work with. Before the 2009 season the sky was the limit with Bowe, he was put in a position to fail last year. Deal him to another team and you can have fun every Sunday witnessing the birth of a superstar.
Let me see here, how do I put this..........WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I read the article. In fact I posted a thread from ESPN! I watch every game and have been to more than I can remember. Bowe does have a big mouth, Bowe was suspended for an ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE, Bowe has been near the top in dropped passes for most of his career, Bowe was benched for the amount of dropped passes now Bowe is running his trap about something that happened 3 years ago and it screams of needing attention! Diva is an understatement, this guy has done nothing in this league and needs to act like it. He's lucky he is on the Chiefs because he wouldn't sniff the field if he were on a team with good WR's. "Better than Tony G"? (his words) Give me a fricken break Bowe!!!!!!!! His catches will drastically drop this year with Urban in the mix. He can actually catch! I am a bit confused though, you don't want to ship him out of here yet you want to "stock the roster with character guys so that these incidents can be avoided". A four game suspension and crying about being benched doesn't scream character to me!!!

It's all about Character, unwanted and otherwise. This will be a make it or break it camp and season for Bowe. He could have a really good year or this could very well be the beginning of the end for him as a Chief. If he does not step up I could even see him being gone before the start of the season. Anything could happen. We could get more for him now in a trade the later after having another crappy year. Ya never know.....

~Confused~ Why would they spend money and go to all that trouble to fly girls in? Heck, cities are flooded with young women who would...lets just say...party with NFL players given the opportunity.

Shoot, 'groupies' chasing the rich & famous, including pro sports, has always been a part of being rich & famous. I watched a show once on NFL Network I think it was, related to the NFL preparing all rookies to enter the world of the NFL. One of the classes the rookies were required to take...was led by counselor's discussing such groupies, warning the players of the risks and deliberate intentions of many 'groupies'.

They said some of these women have intentional goals of getting knocked up...reaping child support benefits, whatever. Some go as far as intentional blackmail. Others are hopeful of a more permanent relationship. Regardless, it's a game of manipulation for many of these so called 'groupies'...hoping for a free ride off a man, instead of making their own way in life, so to speak.

Ever watch the movie 'An Officer and A Gentleman'? Well, the girls in that movie are intentionally trying to 'hook' an Officer...for social and financial standing, or financial benefit in some manner. It's the same thing, they're just groupies of 'Officers', HA!

Anyone can be who they choose to be on the internet...including using fake pic's. I'm wondering how many times a girl has posted a perfect model type pic of herself on MySpace or Facebook, was flown in, and turned out not to be so much a model type after all? LOL
