Dwayne Bowe: ESPN Magazine quote "definitely wasn't me"

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe continues to claim that ESPN the Magazine misquoted him in an article that discussed members of the Chiefs “importing” women to stay with them in hotels for road games.

In an interview with 790 the Zone in Atlanta, Bowe was asked if his teammates had a problem with the article, in which he was quoted as saying, “some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room.” Bowe said his teammates aren’t mad because they believe him that ESPN the Magazine misquoted him.

“No, because now they are finding out that it definitely wasn’t me,” Bowe said, per “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.”

Bowe has said multiple times that ESPN the Magazine misquoted him, but he hasn’t explained what exactly he did say. ESPN insists that it has a tape of the interview and stands by the story, but ESPN’s refusal to broadcast the audio or make it available online means the rest of us are left to decide for ourselves whether we believe Bowe or ESPN.

    So he’s not saying it doesn’t happen… just that he didn’t tell anyone.
    What a turd.

    what an idiot

    Why is it so important for the media to try and embarrass or insult players? The sensible position for players is to just blackball those in the media who create dirt about players. Also, if they do interview, no taped interviews. ESPN or any other media outlet is not to be trusted. The media is merely looking to create controversy, so it is natural for every editor to pressure each writer to look for the controversial angle rather than the truth.

    As much as ESPN has went downhill in the last 5 years (much like the news media of today is geared toward a soap opera instead of a actual news org.) I would vote for Bowe being the one telling the truth.

    My guess is Bowe made the comment but he made it with the intent of it being off the record. The recording that ESPN wont share probably does have the comment on there but it also, probably, makes it clear that Bowe didnt want the comment published in the article.
    So, in essence Bowe said it but it wasnt supposed to air. ESPN can prove that Bowe made the comment but they were never supposed to report it because he made it clear that it was off the record. Releasing the audio of the interview will cost ESPN crediability with the players and the audience.
    Just speculation on my part but its probably what happened.

    As far as I am concerned, if ESPN won’t air the small quote in context, then ESPN is lying.

    Leave this man alone already. Hes a wr for the KC Chiefs. Hes been punished enough already!

    I’ll draft Bowe for my fantasy team, but I’m going with ESPN on this one as far as who is telling the truth on this one.
    I think Bowe was not so much being malicious as he was, you know………naturally stupid.

    “But on a serious note won’t let anything out of the locker room that is not supposed to be out.”
    You hear that, ladies? Your men were importing hookers after all!

    “but on a serious note won’t let anything out of the locker room that is not supposed to be out.” – D Bowe
    So you are basically saying the event in question happened you just didn’t tell anyone until this dumb ass reference?
    This guy needs the jaws of life to remove his foot from his mouth.

  13. Hooby says: Jun 29, 2010 1:00 PM

    dwayne bowe needs to get the hell off the chiefs, where steroids, prostitution, and losing seem to be the norm…hes got way too much potential to waste on that team

  14. Reggie'sBush says: Jun 29, 2010 1:06 PM

    On second thought he might need the jaws of life more to remove how teammates collective foot from his ass

    This team can score! Just not on the field.

  16. Citizen Strange says: Jun 29, 2010 1:13 PM

    NFL players lie like children.

    “…but ESPN’s refusal to broadcast the audio or make it available online means the rest of us are left to decide for ourselves whether we believe Bowe or ESPN.”
    This is the same for all of the PFT stories where an unnamed source is used. Steve Smith would still like to talk to Florio and is likely to wait a long time…

  18. RT says: Jun 29, 2010 1:26 PM

    Just a quick note: There are 2 sportstalk stations in Atlanta, 680 the Fan and 790 the Zone. Which one was it?

  19. Joe says: Jun 29, 2010 1:55 PM

    i think the nfl had both espn and bowe do exactly wat they did and then nothing would come of it… because he actually did say this sites like this and “reporters” like Florio would never let it go and want to know every freakin detail about wat went on.

    Bowe now answers his front door with a towel draped over his head and says “It’s not me, and I’m not home, and I don’t live here anymore.”

  21. TryTheVeal says: Jun 29, 2010 3:12 PM

    Hell…….Charles Barkley once claimed he was misquoted, in his own book. Anything is possible.

  22. Ilovefoolsball says: Jun 29, 2010 4:16 PM

    I’m sure Bowe has never paid a prostitute for sex in his life. Neither has Lawrence Taylor.
