Owner: No punishment for Ireland, case closed

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has just released a statement on the Dez Bryant matter.

In this statement there is no mention of punishment of general manager Jeff Ireland because, I am told, there is none. Furthermore, Ross considers the matter closed.

Ireland, you may recall, asked Bryant if his mother is a prostitute during a pre-draft interview with the player.

The statement:

"I have looked into the matter of Jeff Ireland and the questions asked of former Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant and I have spoken to many people in and outside our organization who were directly involved and indirectly involved.

"Jeff Ireland has apologized personally and publicly to Dez Bryant.

"We are going to take a hard look at our interview practices and we will make improvements that will allow us to get the important information we need about players in whom we are making a major investment, but without being insensitive.

"Jeff Ireland is a man of great capability and integrity and he is well deserving of my continued confidence. I consider the matter closed."

CASE CLOSED

Double post?

Finally

I'm glad they didn't ask Ireland to leave. If he had left it would've been as if the air had left the room. IMO, the media blew this outta proportion. Ireland had already apologized before it became national news.

Who cares about Dez Bryant complaining? This is a taste of things to come from this guy. I'm sure he's talented but a crybaby no less.

Thank you for the clarificaiton Mando. When I read your earlier article entitled "Owner: No punishment for Ireland, matter closed" I was extrememly confuse by the story. It is much appreciated that you would clarify things with this current updated article.

;)

Mr. Ross doesn't care like everyone else. Nobody cares about this except the media.

cuban menace I am sorry I caused heat for you. NJ is a pompous @zzzz like Ireland. For you I will change my name from chuleta to an English name, so you wont get blamed by NJ.

Who is his agent? Do you think the agent was behind it? Incredible how some fans and some writers (mostly S-S) went berserk on this. Incredible.

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
PTI Micheal Wilbong needs to open his own OPrah Winfrey Session show about ? comments in pro sports!!! Im sure it will be a real HIT with the Players ASSOCIATION!!

always figured Menace, Alaco, and carlito along with a million other names were all the same. I don't really pay much attention to any of 'em...On the other hand, Jersey, you are a pompous ass, and booby's a prick, but, seems like he's on meds lately. i'm pretty sure my hate for menace extends further than anyone who's left on these blogs from back then...

Marc those are strong words. You know NJ will come back locked and loaded. Be careful

Maybe Salguero is Dez Bryant's agent. Maybe he's the mastermind behind so his blog will get more hits. This isn't the way Armando!

So now there's a rumor that Dez denies which states that in the conversation leading up to "the question", Dez told Ireland that his dad used to be a pimp or is a pimp.

Today at Cowboys camp the media is bombarded him with questions like f***ing vultures picking away at a carcass. He said THREE TIMES that he didn't want to speak on the matter and that he wants to put it in the past and all three times the reporters came at him with more questions, ignoring his request to leave it alone. This was at his first day on the job and suprise suprise, he had a really rough day of practice. Geez, I can't imagine why he's having a hard time concentrating. So in their enthusiasm to get the dirt, (or maybe in their minds they're trying to help Dez), they're actually hurting the player and the team. So now I understand a little more clearly why the Dolphins don't allow their players to do press conferences.

I appreciate the media for what they do in getting us stories about our favorite teams but when they go over the line like this I don't understand why players don't tell them to go f**k themselves.

So I'm officially done with the whole thing and this will be my last contribution to any blog which speaks on this matter.

Rob in OC, about the Mitchell bet with NJ. I agree with you. NJ is a bad loser. He would have cut you in two if u had lost. You are the bigger man. He is an @zzz, dont say it he will look. Take care

What happened at minis today?! I thought I was coming home to read about Oderick manhandling some poor practice squad O-linemen. Patiently waiting Mando.

Good idea NYScott...I'm with you. Lets move on. Can't wait for September!

Dude, please tell me you're smart enough to realize that we all know you're posting under different names and agreeing with yourself? If you had any ballz you would create a sign in name and sign in every time you attack someone in this blog. But by not signing in you can post as many names as you want, all agreeing that 'whomever' is a douchebag. Please stop insulting everyones intelligence. Sign in and say your peace and you will actually earn some respect. Keep going in this manner and you just look like a moron.

If the jobs # is good Friday this will pass quickly. More room to run before 3rd Q.

Check out EDC.

Sweet week to go on vacation! I see that the Phins invited Dan Beaudin to camp. He's a good player, will be suprised if he makes the team. Anybody making plans to visit the Pacific Northwest, mark Coeur D'Alene down as a stop. Great golf, food, lodging. good times!

Guys Iam killing M@@C the cross dresser on the other blog, Its classic...

Good video pressers with Tony, Misi, & Edds, on today's rook mini camp over at Miami's offical website, on Aquavision.
I was really impressed by what Edds had to say. Hope he becomes a starter in future.

Also was a cool vid interview with Incognito.
He seems ready to get after it. Hope he keps his cool...lol

Also Edds had #49 hanging in his locker when he got there and he's cool with that for now. Was his college # anyways.

Cuban, What up? What did you think of our 3rd round pick? Did you have to but tour lady flowers with the money we bet on?

DD, I always say, You cant have enough line-men,With that being said, getting excited about the up coming year, I hope and pray they start off good, I cant remember the last time the mighty air breathers won a game in September(I know it was new eng. in the 08 season)(But when was the last time before that)....

Wait, so was she a prostitute?

Now the Odrick presser is up over at the official Dolphins website, under the Aquavision tab.
Odrick looks and sounds confident, yet very grounded. I like the way he handles himself.

Miami looks to be putting together a good young core on defense, now the whole team will be very young on both sides of the ball and hopefully challenging for a Super Bowl title for many years to come.

Great "Q" Dish....Mando?????

OK PHin Fans, Trouble just walked in the door and the menace wishes everyone a "PHINTASTIC"Nite.......

Typically when issues like this happen in the work place the employees usually get a verbal repermand; And I think that was the case with Jeff Ireland. Dolphin Rules Dude!

More b.s again, i thought we were pass all this crap. Damn it mando i was so sure it was just gonna be str8 football talk here on out. U sure fooled me buddy!

Now I need to know ...
