Read the whole SI story HERE
Two sources familiar with the situation contend that Ireland's question was nothing more than the logical follow-up to comments Bryant had made about his family. According to the sources, Ireland began the meeting by asking Bryant, 21, about his upbringing and his relationship with his siblings. Then he asked what Bryant's father did for a living when Bryant was growing up. The following exchange allegedly ensued:
"My dad was a pimp."
"What did your mom do [for a living]?"
"She worked for my dad."
"Your mom was a prostitute?"
"No, she wasn't a prostitute."
So now reading the facts are all the Ireland haters going to come back and say "oops sory for jumping to conclusions" ?? I doubt it.
"Jeff Ireland is a classy, classy kid," said one GM, speaking on the condition his name not be used. "Do I think he made a mistake asking that question? Yeah. Even if I knew it was true, I could never ask a kid that. But I have to tell you that the story going hard around the Combine -- and everybody heard it whether it was true or not -- was that his mother was a prostitute and his father was her pimp. That doesn't make it right, but that stuff was out there."
Furthermore if you read the things that Dez Bryant himself said he pretty much called his own mom a prostitute by saying what he said. He said his dad was a pimp and then said his mom worked for his dad. Add those two together and dont you come up with the exact question Ireland asked?
Bottom line here is the Silver and the media that followed attacking Ireland owe Jeff Ireland and the Miami Dolphins an apology. Think they will get it?
