Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe says that his teammates aren't mad at him about his now infamous interview with ESPN The Magazine in which he claimed his teammates used social networking to import NFL groupies while on the road.
"No, because now they are finding out it definitely wasn't me," Bowe said during an interview with 790 the Fan in Atlanta. "But I took that like a man. People that really know the Dwayne Bowe that clowns but on a serious note won't let anything out of the locker room that is not supposed to be out."
So just to be clear, players are definitely doing things in the locker room that need to be hidden from the public, but boning random jersey chasers is certainly not on the list. No young man who dreams of reaching the NFL would want that.
ESPN The Magazine's editor says he has a recording of the interview in question and stands by the story. But in Bowe's defense, the magazine has also declined to release audio of the interview, which is pretty weak considering how thoroughly Bowe's trashed their ethics. Then again, at one point, Bowe claimed he'd never spoken to the magazine and he's since come around from "never" to saying he was misquoted. So who the hell knows.
At this point, all we can say with authority about the Chiefs' road habits is that, whatever they do, they probably won't have a chance to do it in the post-season.
