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."

ss

Marc , trust me , there's no bigger pompous ass on here than you. You're also the biggest whiner on here . You're whining on here is legendary. Other that that , you're alright. OH ! except for the dress wearing too.

Edds says he knows what 54 means in this town, but the 49 jersey was in his locker when he showed up today
John Jerry lined up at left guard, a first for him, he said.
Sparano said he thought Jerry moved well on left during Senior Bowl and Incognito is more a RGM
Sparano said they want to get Reshad Jones as many reps as possible at free S, Clemons, too.
coach Tony Sparano said rookie Reshad Jones would be looked at first as a free safety.

Marc,

I'm with Aloco. You made us feel left out.

No hate for us Brother?

LMAO @ Jersey...Legendary, huh? Sorry, I'd like my team to be relevant some time again...preferrably soon

Sorry odin, I never really take you seriously, you do occassionally make me laught, but, don't hate you, sorry...

Marc,

What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?"

Aloco,

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

You are a joke, a hypocrite, and a fool. Lets look at a few of your posts, shall we…

“IT'S NICE TO SEE THE MIAMI FANS ARE COMING OUT AGAINST THEIR OWN GM AND THAT SPEAKS A LOUD ABOUT THEIR DECENCY” - Aloco

“I MUST SAY HE WILL BE FIRED IN A WEEK OR THE NFL WILL DO SOME THING” - Aloco

“BOBBYD12 IS TRYING HARD TO JUSTFY THE QUESTION, YOU RACIST PIG .” - Aloco

“odinseye, the balCK MAN IS UNDER ATTACK” - Aloco

“NO CARLITO ,THE TRUTH IS IRELAND IS A LOW LIFE WORKING AS GM FOR THE DOLPHINS ,I LONE FOR THE SHULA DAYS .” - Aloco

“the iRELAND QUESTION WAS A RACIST QUESTION AND ANY ONE DEFNED THAT IS A BIG DONKEY RACIST .” - Aloco

And now you say he is a man of integrity, you are classless and a black eye on the miami dolphins organization. I honestly feel bad for you because of how ignorant you are.

Good news, I do have a grammer book for you and your BF Justin credible. Do me a favor, do us a favor STFU you donkey pig! Seriously, please, go away and never come back. This blog will only be better off without your ignorant posts.

Sincerely,

Yeah, go get your f u c kin' shine box

dolphi disciple......... THAT WAS A JOKE BODY ,AND I MEANT IT AS A JOKE PERIOD .


ODINSEYE , I LIKE YOUR QOUTE FROM JOE PACCI .

Oh, and since I'm not as diligent on here any more, I didn't comment on the Rob Konrad blog, but, he was a bad dude...Not as bad as Polite, but good pass-catching FB

Marc,

Touche'

But you do remember what happened to Billy Batts right after he said that?

i'm pretty sure my hate for menace extends further than anyone who's left on these blogs from back then...


Posted by: Marc | April 30, 2010 at 06:05 PM

Marc, do you still wear dresses??? and if so do you go with yellow or black pumps when you do?????? H0M0

Of course, but, that, my friend (pun), was a movie ;)

Aloco,

what was a joke?

Marc,

I liked Conrad. We used to run some awsome Fullback Screens to the guy.

Never really became the player I thought he would be though.

Cuban, I'll don a dress and take care of you prison style. Don't talk to me f@g

yeas dolphin disciple and every one got it b/c all people know of my stand on that issue . peace to you .

odinseye, are you awake ?

Yeah, I don't really remember what happened to Rob...He just kinda vanished, like Gardner, who I also really liked, next to Bowens

M@@C, Not to get off our fighting and squabbling, But what did you think about the draft????

You know MARC, you're a f u c k i n' mumbling stuttering little p r i c k. You know that?

Hey SOILED BOTTOM?

How am I doing?

There's a fake ashley on here, Relax boys she gets home at 8 pm....

Cuban, I'll don a dress and take care of you prison style. Don't talk to me f@g

Posted by: Marc | April 30, 2010 at 07:31 PM

Ah Marc. You do know that the guy that wears the dress catches and don't pitch, right?

I think it’s a shame you feel that way about Ireland. I do not understand it. I wish you could logically state your position without referencing everyone as a racist. Can you give facts, not opinions, to prove your position?

I was personally offended because you do not know me yet you refer to me, because of my beliefs, as a racist. Why would you do that?

odinseye, are you awake ?

Posted by: HOT ASHLEY | April 30, 2010 at 07:33 PM


I'm always .......UP!

Why what do you NEED?

Odin, Trust me M@@c knows he's catching....He has been for years..(Not that there's anything wrong with that...)

In the Gay community M@@c is referred to as Johnny Bench, A great great catcher in his own right...Just a different sport....

MOST ALL Y'ALL SOUND LIKE RACIST TA ME

DOLPHIN DISCIPLE WHY YOU SO PREDJUDISE

YOU SOUND DUM AS ODENSUCK

WHY DONT BOTH Y'ALL JUS STFU

Justin,

You crack me up. You are the one stereotyping someone based on race, not me. But go ahead be ignorant.

Just let me know where to send the 4th grade grammar book. Its on me, I always wish to help another fin fan learn to read past a 4th grade level. No need to thank me.

Justin,

When you can post a comment without obvious spelling and grammar mistakes or apologize to the readers of this blog for insulting and name calling I’ll take a small leave of absence from posting. Until then I am here to remind you how intelligent you are.

I CRACK U UP LIL BOY

I CRACK U UPSIDE YO HEAD HOME BOY

I KNOWS HOW TA SAY WHUT I MEAN

I AINT NO STEROTYPE FO REEL

I MEET ANY A YOU ANYTIME JUS NAME THE PLACE

PUNK BE-OTCHES

I always wish to help another fin fan learn to read past a 4th grade level. No need to thank me.

Posted by: Dolphin Disciple | April 30, 2010 at 08:05 PM

4th grade level? I think you're giving him way to much credit.
I have a 6 year old that can do better than this dimwit.

FO REEL-LOL!!!!

Justin,

I see you have to result to violence for a come back. That makes a lot of sense, I dealt with your type before, nothing intelligent to say so you result to violence. You are really clever.

To bad your daddy wasn’t in your life to teach you to be a man. To bad your mommy never taught you to read and write.

You are a dog with a big bark and no bite. People know what a real coward you are. I am not afraid of you, clowns do not scare me.

Odinseye,

You are the man brother. Thanks for always posting intelligent comments that enhance my understanding of what the Dolphins might do or might be thinking.

I was trying to give Justin not incredible (at spelling) the benefit of the doubt. Don’t you at least think he made it to the 4th grade before he dropped out? FO REEL Son

From SI. This was part of a trascript of the convo that Ireland had with Dez. This should shed a little light into the context of how Ireland asked "The Question" Dez, what did your father do for a living?
Bryant- He was a pimp.
Ireland- What did your mother do for a living?
Bryant- She worked for my dad.
Ireland- Was sha a prostitute?
In this context, "The Question" makes a lot of sense. Hopefully this will go away now, and we can talk about rookie camp, and possible free agents. How the team may look come training camp!

Armando? Armando? Figures.............

I can't believe this. Post after post about the Gerbil flap. A Flap? WTF!
We did Jason the jet soooooooooo wrong whaahh.
Jef said what, about who's momma?
Oh no you're not giving out no. 54 to anyone EVER!!!!

Here it is rookie training camp. Not a peep out of him.
Seriously, isn't the draft supposed to be important to a rebuilding football team? Does our rookie draft class deserve any kind of coverage?

I guess they're not important when you're trying to settle a personal vandetta against the FO.

Chirp, chirp.............chir...........

Darryl,

It does give some context doesn’t it? Thanks for the post

Darryl and Dolphin D,

It would be a reasonable assumption.

What does your Dad do for a living?

He runs an insurance company.

What does your Mother do for a living?

She works for my Dad.

Oh, so she sells insurance.

No harm, no foul.

Dez on the other hand was dirty about it. He half truth it into the media and nationally disgraced his family in the process.

Oh well, I hope he can turn to a close friend, like Pac Man Jones, and together they can figure out a good course of action.

Someone posted a previous comment ( I forget who) about it being a Jerry Jones publicity stunt, I wonder if it has any merit? I wouldn’t put it past him.

bullsh2t. players get fined, suspended, and this dumbass asks a question like that and nothing. if dallas played miami bryant would eat that secondary up, and would love it. forget all the LB's where's a fuc@in safety.

Rehad shut down Bryant in college and he has a better supporting cast now.

Bryant cringes everytime he thinks about Jones laying him out again.

I can't wait until the Dallas pre-season game.

odinseye, what a romance guy you are ,you very sweet when you say ,i am always up .

LMFAO . Dolphin Discpile , you're the man !! Best post of the Year at 7:22 pm , the others that followed were good too. Good for you , man/

METS WIN AGAIN BABY !!!! that's 8 in a row and 10 of their last 11. THE HOTTEST TEAM IN BASEBALL !!! LETS GO METS ! LETS GO METS !! 1st place baby !!

NJ sweetie go read the newest blog.

These guys --scouts, GMS, even most coaches-- wouldn't know talent if it bit them in the ass. It's a brotherhood of incompetency. And we suckers love the Jew show.

Was she a hooker? So what, most of these guys' moms have held those legs open for several chaps, I am sure. For NO compensation.

Reasonable

I'll be sooo glad when this blog is about football again!
Really. Maybe then I won't waste as much of my time reading all this stupid dribble that you guys post just to hear your gums flap.
I hate all this bickering, whining, moaning, and acting like a bunch of six year olds that you guys constantly put out.
Please, if that's the most intelligent thing that you've got to say, find your own blog and/or go somewhere else!
Real Dolphin fans are trying to discuss real Dolphin topics.
No one cares if you're gay, a homophobe, or that your mother dresses you funny.
No one cares that you're sexually frustrated or confused. Or, any of the other stupid dribble that you spurt out that thing below your navel.
If you're a frustrated Jets fan, well, they've got a blog too. Go there! Please! Everyone's tired of all the crap on here! Get a life you morons!
