Bowe doesn't know code

Back during the dark days when Ravens fans searched under any rock even remotely connected to the NFL for a new wide receiver, the name of Dwayne Bowe popped up regularly. Count me among those who actually supported such a move to get Bowe who at one time reportedly could have been had for a second round pick.

Bowe has recently cloaked himself in a shroud of controversy and now if you can believe ESPN the Magazine he's accessorizing the shroud with more cover ups.

Back in May Bowe is on record (again according to ESPN the Magazine) saying, "My rookie year, we were playing in San Diego.

"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."


I wonder how many of the Chiefs' players had some 'splainin' to do to their wives or significant others?

But since the interview was published, Bowe has claimed that he didn't say it, he was taken out of context, his thoughts were twisted, yada, yada, yada.

Now ESPN the Magazine Editor in Chief Gary Belsky released a statement on Bowe's denials and has hinted that there's a lot more and a lot worse comments on tape originating from Bowe.

"As we have said, we will happily allow Mr. Bowe the chance to listen to our recording of his interview, in the event he forgot that he made these comments," Belsky said, via Sports by Brooks.

"He has not asked to do so. Despite his persistence in denying having made these comments-unfairly damaging the reputation of one of our best writers-we have consistently avoided releasing the audio from his interview to spare him and others further embarrassment, specifically because the on the recording he offers more lurid details than we published and because he named several teammates as having participated in the off-hours activity in question."

This thing if Bowe allows it to perpetuate could split the Kansas City Chiefs or it could force the team to move Bowe.

I bet the Chiefs can't wait for their next road trip to San Diego.

Wonder how many of the wives will opt to go to that game?

In other words "we don't have this recording otherwise we would release it, but we will say he made these comments anyway."
