Just before the draft, we heard the most offensive job interview question we can imagine.
Dez Bryant was asked if his mom was a prostitute.
The wide receiver answered and didn't show his anger. Since then, Bryant was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. And Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports reveals the man who asked the question used to work for America's Team -- current Dolphins G.M. Jeff Ireland.
Thats just unacceptable, Im surprised that Bryant didn't just sock the dude.
I agree, it was unacceptible, but he was probably testing his ability to control his anger and c'mon, we've all said worse things to players at games (at least I have to Darnell Dockett, and a few baseball pitchers at Pac Bell Park
After the whole Deion fiasco, teams had to check out his ability to control criticism and slander, like he would as a pro. Not to mention if they picked him at #12, he'd have been paid similar to Crabtree, so if he can't control himself with a stupid question, I sure as hell wouldn't want to pay him.
Now, if Ireland had said, "Is you're mother a prostitute, b/c I wanna get my rocks off tonight",
or "I saw your mom on the corner and looks like she was pettling for sex, is that true?",
or even "Sorry I'm late, just finished having sex with your mom, hopefully what I paid her made sure you could afford your Under Armor uniform you're wearing.",
then yea, that's too far
Also, remember Sing asked Matt Ryan how he felt about his parents being divorced, so we're def not innocent in the "Being Politically Correct" category.
I think I have to agree with valrod on this, and say F**K the cowgirls and Bryant, let's see him go over the middle with Mays and Goldson laying the wood
