Darnell Dockett takes social media to a new level

Over the past year, the Twitter phenomenon has spawned new ways to connect with pro athletes.  Throw in Ustream, and the guys we see playing football on Sundays in the fall are more accessible than ever.

In many cases, it’s a good thing.  In some cases, it’s a bad thing.  Which, depending on the circumstances, can be a great thing.

This isn’t one of them.

Per our pal Brooks of SportsByBrooks.com, Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett recently took a shower on Ustream after being dared to do it — and promised him $1,000 if he did.

We know that guys are always looking for ways to push the envelope.  In this specific category, we hope it stops right here.

    Judging by your posts earlier I would have guessed it was you behind the camera…

  3. Wow, is it because he was so badly burned by Vernon Davis in their twitter battle?
    Or because he was still dirty from the Niners and Frankie G running all over him last year?

    What makes you think Tuck’s gonna break the record? Apparently, Dockett already has a head start.

  6. Doesn’t matter, AW will again smash the hell out of Davis this season, just like before.

  7. Ocho Cinco is jealous that he didn’t think of that first. But at least he got to run naked through the woods for his latest TV commercial.

  8. Eh, who cares? He gave some ladies a thrill. I don’t really see harm in it. It’s not for me, but obviously some of his fans.
    Let sleeping dogs lie, Florio.

    Something about the words “Darnell Dockett”, “shower”, “Ustream”, and “giving some ladies a thrill” just doesn’t sound right. At all.
    Anyone who finds that thrilling needs therapy. Seriously.
    Please do

  10. 4 game suspension Commish Godell! A NFL player shows off his junk on the internet is unbecoming of an NFL player and there is proof!!!

  11. Does this mean Goodell can now give the green light to the Dallas-Porn endorsement deal? They can replace those cheerleaders in the upper deck with some real entertainment.

  12. CJ,
    Get your head out of your prudish ass. If you had read the article, you’d have understood what those terms meant and not something more sinister. His female fans enjoyed it. There are venues for females in this world, i.e. Chippendale dancers. Women do deserve a little male entertainment even if it is not our cup of tea. The double standards do not need to apply here.
