Owner: No punishment for Ireland, matter 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 int 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 improvement that will allow us to get the important information we need about player 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."

excellent. it's over, done. good move by Ross.

I sincerely hope this is the last blog on this subject.

If anything, Dez Bryant owes Miami and apology for painting the Dolphins in this light. If he knew how to answer a question properly, none of this would have happened.

Piece of trash - fits well in Dallas.

I was hoping he'd fire Ireland and replace him with his good friend Carl Peterson.

Thank You Mr Ross. Can you please buy one o fthe newspapers down there so we can get real sports coverage now ?

This matter isn't news worthy. I was disgusted when I saw the situation on the front page of the sports section for the past few days.

Don't get mad at the people reporting the news.
Be upset with the one's who are making the news.

Glad to see the case close. Plus with the news today coming out that Bryant actually said his mom worked for his dad, was a pimp, proves that Ireland was not in the wrong. Hopefully the truth gets spread around as much as Bryant's half truth version has.

The real jerks are the media they keep asking and talking about it because they want to know if his mom is a prostitute get over it and start talking football

Good , ireland didn't deserve a punishment and this can be put to rest. Also dez bryant has been and will always be a PHUCKEN LIAR ! This won't be the last time you've heard about dez' s off the field soap opera's , Thank god he not a dolphin !!

I HAVE ONE MORE THING TO ADD... Dez Bryant..... Good Luck in the NFL :)

People, these days in general, are over-sensitive btches.

Lips , you're a newcomer here. armando already confirmed that the Cuban menace was indeed many - me over a year ago. please don't be fooled so easily.

Wrong again NJ, He Confirmed I was NOT many me and said he was aloco, Now your breaking the peace and have sullied my good name(If that's possible).....Maybe everyone just thinks your a pompus Idiot, Are you related to Jeff(Is your momma a Ho??)Ireland????

This topic was closed when the Cowboys drafted Bryant. I can already see Dez causing drama in Dallas when the honeymoon is over with Jerry Jones. Good luck Mr Bryant and HELLO Mr Marshall!!!!

Damm!! ...and I thought that I was going to get to hear
TWO LIARS
go back and forth in the Media for another week!
.
.

Now can we focus on real football?!?

I wish Brett Favre would f off already.

Since the new rookies have been playing for about 1 1/2 hours now is there any way we could, I don't know, stop talking about how much Dez's mom costs and start talking about how the guys are doing?

Y'ALL BE ON SUM BULLSHEET

So was she a prostitute?

Camp update.... a bird crapped on the sideline.

NJ PHIN FAN:

I SALUTE THE OWNER FOR CLOSING THIS MATTER ,JEFF IRELAND IS MAN OF INTEGRITY . TO ALL THE HATTERS OF IRELAND I SAY POOOOOO .

If my grandma had balls she would be my grandfather. Now lets move on and talk about real football news

Stupid bird

POOOOOOOOO!

Good job Mr. Ross

NJ, WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR GRAT FRIENDSHIP W/ THE CUBAN ?

I'm catching up on some of the comments I missed over today and it seems that NJ has broken the blog peace treaty with Cuban Menace...

Can we finally put the ball(s) back in football and leave all this vaginal days of our lives s h i t behind?

Camp update.... Jason Allen will be the next crappy athlete to endorse Title sports drink.

THE CUBAN IS A TRICKY GUY,HE CAN TURN ON YOU ON DIME .NJ HAS IT RIGHT THIS TIME .

Mando's been at camp for hours now and he's posted:

Victory for the "over-sensitive gang"
Edds will wear no. 49

and

Dez's Mom is still a Ho
Ireland exonerated of all charges.

Not a peep about Odrick, Misi or Jones.

Way to go SCOOP!

I wonder if Ross's mother is a HO.

What a travesty.

This will not end because Ross said so. This will go to court if I can help it.

I 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...

My goodness, is all the FO racist?

on a side note. Is Mandy, or anyone else going to report anything from mini camp?

I glad this has ended. Ross has confirmed that the NFL is racist, sexist an full of crap.

I bet Ross, Ireland an Parcells had a big laugh at Dez's mothers expense.

I'm writing the league about this. I just don't see how nothing was done. Ross didn't even address the future questions with Ireland. So Ireland can continue to ask racist and stupid questions?

Tuna doesn't like black QB's. And Ireland thinks every player has a mother that is a prostitute.

MARC,


CAN YOU BE MY FRIEND ,I NEVER GET IN FIGHT W/ANY ONE .

leavE IRELAND ALONE,HE HAS FAMILY.HE SAID SORRY AND THAT'S IT.MOVE TO TALK FOOTBALL .

ss

Was today's practice closed off? Why no news?

WHERE'S THE NEWS ABOUT MISI ?
