NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell came down hard on the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal. Earlier this month, it was revealed the Saints defense paid bonuses to players for deliberately knocking opposing players, violating league rules, salary cap and endangering others well being. Master mind and former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was suspended indefinitely and head coach Sean Payton was suspended for the entire 2012 season.
NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp is accusing Jeremy Shockey of being the snitch, claiming the motive being that Shockey was released by the team before the 2011 season. Sapp revealed on Twitter he knew who the league’s source was, when a follow suggested Shockey @QBKILLA replied “BINGO!”
Shockey adimitly denies being the deep throat, even telling Sapp “you know where to find me.”
UPDATE 3/22: Shockey tweeted a picture screen of a text message conversation with Payton clearing his name. “Shock your (sic) my guy and always will be!!! I know you had nothing to do with that stuff sap said!! Hell you were in the offensive meetings with me!!!”
It’s pretty hard to upstage Drew Brees on a night where he broke Dan Marino’s NFL record for yards passing in a season, but Betty White held her own in the MNF Open against the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons.
Oh baby! In Touch Weekly is reporting Jessica Simpson is pregnant with her fiance and former NFL player Eric Johnson. According to a source, Simpson turned away champagne at Johnson’s 32nd birthday party and is having sweet & salty cravings. The couple’s November wedding is still a go, and Simpson has said this is “the best wedding present” they could have asked for.
Simpson dated Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo for two years, and despite her jersey chasing past it’s Johnson who is being criticzed for being in the relationship for money. Johnson played five years with the San Francisco 49ers from 2001-2006 before being released. Although, the Yale grad had a quick stint with the New Orleans Saints in 2007 and was again released…. hopefully this time he is in it for the long haul!
Reggie Bush is known for having a “type,” but his new girlfriend is sure not to be confused with Kim Kardashian. The NFL running back is said to be dating one of the Shannon twins, who gained notoriety for dating Hugh Hefner back in 2009. The Shannon twins were the first ever twins to be named Playmate of the Month in August 2009.
Despite breaking up in 2010, the twins moved back into the Playboy mansion after Hefwas left at the alter by fiance Crystal Harris just days before their June 2011 wedding. But that’s not stopping the girls from jersey chasing, the twins are said to be spotted at Bush’s home in neighboring Los Angeles.
Bush was most recently linked to Kardashian lookalike Melissa Molinero but is said to have broken up with the Old Navy commerical star because of the comparrisions to Kim K. While the Shannon twins may not look like Kardashian, they have both appeared in Playboy.
