Dwayne Bowe lets a rather large cat out of the bag

ESPN The Magazine has a feature called “Postcards from the Edge.”  In it, pro athletes provide anecdotes regarding their lives.

In the latest issue, which hits newsstands Friday, Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe possibly says too much.

“My rookie year, we were playing in San Diego,” Bowe says.  “You hear stories about groupies hanging out in hotel lobbies, but some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room.  The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it importing.” 

(The federal government possibly would call it something else.)

“Younger guys don’t have the money to do it,” Bowe added.  “Anyway, these girls had the whole top floor. They know everything about us — first and last names, sisters and brothers, salary.  This one girl was talking to me like she’d known me for years.  ‘Hey, D-Bowe, how’s Grandma?’  I’m like, ‘How do you know my grandma?’  She knew that I talk about her every  time I’m interviewed for a story. 

“I told her I had a girlfriend, but she didn’t care.  She was wearing my jersey, sitting in my lap, making it look like we knew each other.  Then she took a picture and put it on Facebook.  That almost got me in trouble.”

Bowe may have avoided trouble that time.  But we’ve got a feeling that trouble will be finding him now.

  1. That doesnt happen to you Florio? 5’2” Italian wanna-be sportswriters dont get goupies? Quit hating on successful people.

  2. Huh? I didn’t see the word “Prostitution”, “hooker” or “whore” in there. I saw “groupie”. There’s nothing illegal about that.

  3. Who cares seriously? I would be bangin’ chicks left and right if I was NFL player making 5-10 Mil per year. The guys in the 70’s 80’s were open to talking about their sex lives on camera all the time. Joe Namath ring a bell?

  4. Lol, next hotel “D Bow” checks into he’s going to find his granny in his upstairs room. Stupid kid.

  5. Waaay too much info dude…and you kinda put your teammates out there a little bit too. I can see their wives/girlfriends confronting them now, “is this what goes on??!! Oh no baby…he’s talking about some of the OTHERS…I would NEVER do anything like that..” LOL!!!

  6. So, you are saying that young men are using their fame and wealth to attract pretty women??

  7. wow, these dudes are as dumb as the stupid ho’s flyin out there.
    I can believe every word of what he said I just cannot believe he said it…..
    In a time where the NFL is under constant fire for the actions of it’s players this comes out…lol…idiot

  8. Now THAT’S building a team!
    BTW, we didn’t need to “import” back in the ol’ AFL days….

  9. Ahh, the life. I knew I should have kept playing sports. Pops never told me about this side of it. Silly him, to worried about teaching character and hussle….

  10. Why does it keep shocking me that these athletes are complete morons. Just idiots. Florio, you have to love it. Just an endless stream of rumors. I wonder what the guys back in the ’70’s would have said if they’d only had twitter and facebook…lol

  11. “I told her I had a girlfriend, but she didn’t care.”
    LOL ….apparently D-Bowe didnt care either! 😦

  12. It’s almost as though he doesn’t want to be in the NFL…
    I mean that is remarkable. You not only participate when the obvious reaction is to kick this to the curb – THEN – you decide the situation is fit for print (let alone internet trafficking).
    There aren’t words for this that don’t include “disability” or “special”. At this point, I want proof D-Bowe can even spell his given name.

  13. lol some of these players have the mindsets of 3 year old children; sometimes you just dont say this kinda stuff man…
    I can just imagine him spouting this off as droll as can be and very much like bubba from forest gump.

  14. Trouble for what??? When did it become illegal to fly grown 18+year old skanks into a city you are visiting???? Florio please tell is what the Feds call it?????

  15. Flying a friend into town for a little “companionship” isn’t a crime. I live on tour and have done it many times. Fly a young lady to town, put her up in a hotel and provide for her needs, if she likes the treatment she provides for yours… Everybody wins, and there is no “services rendered” fee. No different than taking your wife or girlfriend on a business trip.
    BUT… It’s not something you should be talking about in a national magazine…
    C’mon D-Bowe… What happens on the road- Stays on the road. That rule has been in effect for eons!!

  16. Why would this cause him trouble? I thought the pro athlete/groupy lifestyle was pretty much common knowledge?

  17. Dwayne, the good lord gave you one mouth and two ears…recommend using what you have more of.

  18. That’s awesome.. I’m pretty sure this girl I know is one of those girls. She has pics with pro athletes, and travels a lot, but never talks about what she does. Has a sick high rise apartment and rolls in a black denali on 22’s.

  19. Stop the presses!!! We’ve just received information that professional athletes are engaging in sexual congress with groupies on the road!!!
    It makes for a mildly entertaining read….but if you’re trying to pass this off as something surprising scandalous, then you’re bringing some seriously weak ****.

  20. Man it must be nice to be a pro football player. Say what you want about morals, ethics, and all that other useless crap. Most people in their shoes would be doing the same stuff. Enjoy it while it lasts cuz soon enough you’ll be out of the league, broken down, with no money and not much cognitive function!!!

  21. How is he letting a “cat” out of a “bag”? Who doesn’t know that this stuff goes on? It’s always gone on, and it always will. Nothing about this is new.
    You should go read LT’s autobiography.

  22. Really though… How many people are still a part of the Chiefs squad now from D-Bowe’s rookie season?

  23. “They know everything about us — first and last names…”
    Wow, how very educated of them.
    Here’s your checklist for the year Bowe:
    1. Try to avoid suspensions for PEDs
    2. Keep mouth shut and play football

  24. I wonder exactly what question was asked for him to want to remotely throw any of that information out there?

  25. That is the exact story I would use to cover up my “mistake” photo showing up on Facebook.

  26. he dint say anything about any money so i dont see how “trouble” will be finding him.

  27. Well, if you are gonna be a prostitute you might as well be a prostitute for professional athletes. At least they will pay you well for your time.

  28. ….Dwayne freakin Bowe has groupies? Seriously? The guy is a decent player…but still, he isn’t exactly the 2nd coming of Jerry Rice.
    Of course, if that pencil neck wuss hank baskett can knock up whatshername with the rack, anything is possible.

    NFL sex parties?
    Beats Favre/Rapist/Cushing updates, I suppose…
    —-Looks like all they missing now is some Vicodin….. WHO DAT!

  30. wait… these are the same chiefs that wanted to unload larry johnson because of something he said on twitter..? am i.. missing, something..?

  31. I can’t even IMAGINE the hell this moron is going to catch for this in the locker room!
    Coaches, front office guys and teammates all just collectively **SMACKED** themselves on the forehead while yelling “You’ve got to be F$#%&@G KIDDING me!!!”
    I can’t believe how casually he just puked all this info up! Amazing!

  32. “Dwayne Bowe lets a rather large cat out of the bag”
    Good title. Replace “cat” with a synonym and post it.

  33. The league has set the precedent this off-season that cavorting with women in this manner is grounds for a 4-6 game suspension. Well, if you are a star QB anyway, because that somehow makes it more embarassing for the league. A schmo like Dewayne Blowe should be suspended for 2-4 games for premartial sex with a slutty woman.
    Right moralistic PFT planet???

  34. I wonder if Cheatin’ Bill Belichick has any film of this? Cuz you know, the Pats film stuff for cheating purposes, and the Steelers are a pillar of society…..aside from the raping.

  35. Explains why he can’t catch a pass, he is too busy thinking about the hotel room later.

  36. No wonder Herm Edwards couldn’t win as a coach there. He had ZERO discipline or control of his team.

  37. FlorioSucks2: “the monkeys out of the bottle..pandora doesnt go back into the box”
    Dude, that comment was quite possibly the worst I’ve ever seen where metaphors were so screwed up.

    Dumbass. At least he wasn’t raping anyone.
    Right, Ben?
    ———————————–
    No, “dumbass” is making a claim of something as if it actually happened, rather than what you THINK happened. State some proof of a rape, or sit down and STFU with the rest of the idiots.
    As for what Bowe said, wow wake up time. You moral morons don’t think this stuff happens everywhere, all the time? Just like that chick followed Ben around from bar to bar — at least he didn’t “import” her.
    Now c’mon Commissioner — is this kind of behavior that exemplifies the NFL’s Conduct Code? How many games is this guy gonna get for this — because you’d BETTER come down on it the way you did for Ben, who wasn’t even CHARGED with any wrongdoing.
    C’mon Goodell, time to keep slipping down that slope you slicked down with oil.

    Are the Chiefs having open tryouts any time soon?
    ———————–
    Yes. Show up in room 745 of the Kansas City Doubletree at 7:30 tonight.

  40. reminds me of the guy who posted a video on youtube of him driving a sports car 150mph, and clearly revealing his face… yeah they arrested him.
    oh yeah, also reminds me of the movie “Idiocracy.”

  41. Sex parties for football teams are bad in high school. How do you think it is on the pro level?

  42. also, no wonder why athletes are broke. flying in whores/call girls themselves before every game would get pricey. morons.

  43. Now we know how players are listed with “groin strain” on the injury report.

  44. Bowe is a complete idiot, so dumb, they should trade him to the Vikings where flying hookers in from out of state is a franchice specialty.

  45. Let’s see, Roethlisberger got 6 games for “behaving badly” in a bar.
    So “importing” fun girls across state lines should be worth, what, two whole seasons?

  46. “Really though… How many people are still a part of the Chiefs squad now from D-Bowe’s rookie season?”
    Brian Waters and… nope, just Brian Waters.

  47. Well that’s not true.. Derrick Johnson, Tamba Hali, Ron Edwards.. yeah not many though.

  48. No wonder the Chiefs suck, they are too tired from the night before. All that “work” takes a lot out of you. Try looking over the game plan on Saturday nights instead of scoring chicks.

  49. I wish Florio would explain what the Federal Government would call it.
    Its not prostitution, commerce across state lines, or anything I can think of.

  50. This is what our HillBilly Lawyer was referring to, with respect to the Feds…
    THE MANN ACT
    “The act made it a felony to transport knowingly any woman or girl in interstate commerce or foreign commerce for prostitution, debauchery, or any other immoral purpose. It also made it a felony to coerce a woman or a girl into such immoral acts. President william h. taft signed the bill in June 1910.”
    Yes…it’s still on the books…

  51. Rockstars have it the best with better looking chicks. Golfers have the worst looking chicks.

  52. The reason the Feds didn’t come down on them with the old “transporting stolen goods across state lines” – a felony, must have been because the “goods” were paid for.
    Thought 1 or 2, maybe even 3 NFL players might have learned to be more circumspect when talking on-line or into microphones.
    Thought it was possible to learn from widely WIDELY publicized, big BIG trouble incidents involving other players, but. Guess not.
    Thought that conviction that nothing bad can happen to ME, just to the other guy, disappeared when you were about 19. Guess not.
    Coulda just stood up and made his lap disappear –

  53. Makes me proud (SARCASM!) to be an LSU fan, what with Jamarcus Russell and now Dwayne Bowe in the news for this…

  54. He pretty much insinuated prostitution with the “younger guys don’t have the money to do this line”

  55. Nobi–this doesn’t necessarily insinuate prostitution, as he mentioned other things that take money, like paying for a whole floor of rooms for the girls, flying them out there, etc.

  56. Rookies…Ya know, the ladies were always hanging around Lenny, Willie, and Mike Garrett. Ed Podolak would crack open the mini bar, put some Al Hirt on the phonograph, and let the good times roll.
    Things havent changed a bit.

    “Let’s see, Roethlisberger got 6 games for “behaving badly” in a bar.
    So “importing” fun girls across state lines should be worth, what, two whole seasons?”
    Bowe would have to rape a lot more than two women to get a two season suspension. Besides, these “fun girls” were willing participants, unlike Rapenstein’s victims.

    Boom, there ya go — and a public admission of commission, to boot.
    Well come on, Commissioner Goody-Goody — time to work that Conduct Policy thing again.

    ——————————————–
    EXACTLY like 5 players from 07 are still there lol this was 3 years ago ppl the first year of the chiefs being record bad, they’ve been bad but just the year before they were in the playoffs remember? LJ was the 2nd best running back in the league behind LT the year before and Favre was still a packer is this putting it into perspective? Who is he gonna get in trouble? players who have already been cut? And why would he get in trouble from this organization when Back then it was carl peterson and herm edwards runnin the show? Pioli probably isnt suprised this happened. Why would the league do anything to him for something that happened 3 years ago that he was just “there” when it happened? Its not that bigga deal. Kinda on the line but not crossed it

  60. Who doesn’t fly whores in on a regular basis?
    Nothing like playing”just the tip” the night before playing an NFL game….”just for a little bit…just for fun”

  61. Dwayne Bowe is not the brightest bulb in the box. I knew it was a bad sign when he said he was a fan of Soulja Boy–another knucklehead. These aren’t bad kids; they are just idiots with pocketfulls of money.

  62. What happened to bringing back the comment ratings? There is some gold here.
    Gold Jerry, Gold!

  63. ROFL @Burning River …
    Are you really that stupid? They’re all groupies. Evidence shows Ben’s Nevada woman was more than willing. Witnesses in Georgia said that woman was obsessed w/Ben and evidence shows no one got raped. This has been the life of NFL players for decades. Ben got burned because he treats people like dirt. But these women aren’t innocent lil things who got lost going to Sunday school. They know EXACTLY what they’re doing.

  64. That this happens is no surprise. That he is dumb enough to speak about it is. How stupid is this guy? He put the veterans on the team out there. What a moron.

    lol. groupie = whore. same thing. any chick getting flown in from outta town is no different than a local prostitute

  67. I don’t understand what made him an idiot for stating something EVERYONE already knows. INCLUDING THE FOOTBALL WIVES!!!!!! (The wives will be there as long as they bring home the paychecks!!) All of you who are saying he let the cat out of the bag or it’s T.M.I. are silly for thinking this is TOP SECRET INFORMATION.

  68. This is hard to believe. I’d be very surprised if there are ANY women on the planet outside the 5 mile radius of Cammarowhead stadium that can even name two Chiefs.
    But, this goes to show you that even minor league teams have groupies.

  69. haha Florio must be new to this whole groupie thing, this has been goin on since man created money

  70. Wow, way to go Bowe. Some things should probably stay private to avoid embarassing others such as teamates,management or even yourself.
    Idiot.
    If you want to be the show, try it first on the field. You have none next to nothing so far.

  71. Whoever is saying that this is common knowledge and that this moron did not let the cat out of the bag has get serious issues. Sure, athletes may be known for attracting women or even affairs w/ women. Somethings do not need to be aired out for the whole world to see. Common knowledge is to not air out dirty laundry about yourself if you choose to partake, and especially not about your teammates.
    Cassel should hang this moron out to dry!

    James Brown said it better:

    But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl.”

  73. @Frank Burns – Wow u really need a life.
    nooo, this is nothing like Rapistbergers situation.. no matter how many times u post it on here.
    LOL @ This clown and all his posts defending Ben.
    u truly are f’ing clueless!!!

  74. Damn if the steelers did this big ben would find himself in jail real quick, imagine a floor full of girls shooting him down

  75. I CANT BELIEVE HE SAID WHAT!! SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME WHERE TO SEND MY FACEBOOK MESSAGES TOO FROM MR.BOWE AND PHOTOS… HE IS SUCH A LIAR AND I HAVE PROOF ALL HIS CELL NUMBERS AND SAVED TEXTS AND FACEBOOK MESSAGES WOW I KNEW HE WAS A TRIP!

  76. No one has asked the all-important question “How do I handicap this for Fantasy football?”

  77. But when good old Joe Willie Namath did it, nobody cared. It wasn’t until he sexually harrassed Suzy Kolber in a drunken haze until people got it.
    I would say that nobody cares, but clearly, a lot of people do. This story is gay (no homo).
    (Ah, I see what you did there…)
