Who the What happens when a country star takes a cheap shot at a NFL team owner at a US Politician on ESPN CONTROVERSY!
Christie’s embrace of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones Sunday evening set off a torrent of online mocking of the Garden State governor who roots not for the Giants, Jets or Eagles, but the Cowboys.
For those of you who missed it…Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones shared a victory hug with New Jersey governor Chris Christie who was a guest in the team owners sky box during last weeks playoffs between the Cowboys and the Lions.
When the Cowboys made their last big play to “seal the deal” to take on the Green Bay Packers in the conference semi finals…there was a totally innocent exchange of hugs between Jones, his son, Christie as well as several others who were also watching the game from the box.
For some reason, ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” host Bob Ley was interviewing country singer, wannabe politician Kinky Friedman when the subject of “the male embrace” came up….It was then that Friedman suggested there were shenanigans in the owner’s box. WHOOPS!
UPDATE: ESPN has apologized after Kinky Friedman’s homosexual remarks about Jerry Jones and Chris Christie.
Michael Sam the first gay man to be drafted in the NFL has been released from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.

- Le’Veon Bell (Pittsburgh Steelers) was charged with marijuana possession and driving under the influence of pot near Pittsburgh before a preseason game in August.
There’s another big blow to the reputation of the NFL and this time it’s not a player whose behavior is in question…It’s Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
In case you missed it…last month photos of Jerry Jones fondling two strippers were leaked.
In Jones’ own defense, he contended that the photos were taken without his knowledge over five years ago and the man who leaked the photos was trying to extort money from the NFL team owner.
One of the women in the photos Jana Weckerly, who calls her line of work as “exotic dancing” is now saying that she is traumatized and is in counseling because of the incident that took place in June 2009 at a local hotel.
The complaint filed by Jana Weckerly, 27, from Ardmore, Okla., says that Jones fondled her genitals, forced her to touch or rub his penis, and required she watch as the 71-year-old Jones received oral sex from another woman. Weckerly is seeking more than $1 million in punitive damages.

Fomer NFL tackle Josh Brent has been released from jail.
Brent, who played for the Dallas Cowboys from (2010–2012) was convicted in January 2014 for the December 2012 drunken car crash that killed his friend and teammate, Jerry Brown.
The night of the wreck, the two men were headed home from partying with fellow Cowboys at a nightclub when Brent lost control of his Mercedes, causing a fiery accident. Officers who arrived on scene said Brent was seen trying to pull Brown’s body from the wreckage.
Police documents showed that Brent was driving at least 110 mph and may have been driving as fast as 134 mph right before the crash, on a road where the posted speed limit was 45 mph. Brent later failed a sobriety test and would face 2 to 20 years in prison if convicted. Brent was found by the police pulling out his friend and teammate.
Brent’s blood-alcohol level was tested shortly after the crash at 0.18 percent, more than twice the legal limit for drivers in Texas.
The 26-year-old was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years’ probation. It was not immediately clear whether he would be required to report to a rehab facility to complete the remainder of his his six-month sentence, which was expected to end in July.
