Dallas Morning News reporter Gromer Jeffers Jr. drew an interesting assignment on Monday night: Hang out in a local strip club to see if any of the NFL players in town for the Super Bowl stop by.
As it turned out, Jeffers wrote a story saying that Hines Ward, Ike Taylor and several other members of the Steelers visited Dallas Gentlemen’s Club, and that a number of other pro athletes were there as well.
Ward, however, says that’s not true.
“Who’d you hear that from? I wasn’t there,” Ward said. “I went out. It’s none of your business where I went.”
The Dallas Morning News has published a transcript of Ward’s comments today at Super Bowl Media Day, but there’s no word on whether the paper stands by its report.
