The Real Reason ESPN Spiked LeBron-Vegas Story

The real reason ESPN spiked the LeBron James-Vegas story by ESPN reporter Arash Markazi had nothing to do with anything Markazi wrote about James last weekend.

ESPN reported on unathenticated Jerry Jones video

(ESPN didn’t directly authenticate Jones video before airing it)

Last April, in a span of less than a week, ESPN repeatedly reported on two stories infinitely more embarrassing to high profile sports figures. But there’s one key difference between those two ESPN-aired stories and the LeBron-Vegas piece that was pulled.  A difference which explains why ESPN was so quick to axe Markazi’s work.

One of those embarrassing stories ESPN was willing to cover involved a drunk Jerry Jones being secretly videotaped at a bar by a person who, to this day, was never identified. The other story involved private photos of Josh Hamilton taken at a bar that were never intended for media dissemination. Read more…

Tebow spoke to 5,200 people, each paying $50 apiece, inside Lipscomb’s Allen Arena. The event was described on the school’s website as “the second annual Don Meyer Evening of Excellence. The speech was the culmination of a full day of activities including Tim and his parents, Pam and Bob Tebow.

Tebow’s speech to attendees was described by the school’s website thusly:

Like most people who successfully follow their dreams Tim Tebow has accomplished his goals through his focus, hard work and his faith in Jesus Christ.

Tebow, who took time to provide his support to Lipscomb only a few days before the NFL Draft, plans to use his pro career as a platform for presenting his beliefs.

“The NFL is not the end for me. It is a means to an end. It will give me a platform to hopefully make a difference.”

Though he didn’t cover it in his speech, Tebow discussed the recent comment Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones made about him. Read more…

• Titans owner Bud Adams gives the Bills a double-finger salute - and gets fined $250,000 for it.

• After Stanford’s stunning slaughter of ‘SC, Pete Carroll & Jim Harbaugh both want to know what the deal is. (And Pete won’t forget it.)

• But the real deal is Toby Gerhart. Just ask his swim team girlfriend, who says that the Cardinal RB is “one big muscle.”

• Speaking of girlfriends, Erin Dewes has been incorrectly labeled as Tim Tebow’s squeeze. But that’s not stopping her from covering her nude self in number 15’s body paint.

Zack Greinke is a real winner this week. Not only did the Royals pitcher grab the Cy Young award, he’s also tying the knot with former Miss Daytona Beach Emily Kuchar.

Warning: Party Pass May Not Contain Actual Party

Amidst the gushing celebration of Jerry Jones‘ new Cowboy Stadium was a rather curious contention: that the stadium packed enough people into the SRO areas to break the all-time NFL record for attendance. While that figure may or may not have been met, we do know that simply looking at ticket sales isn’t going to tell the whole story about how many people were actually in the stadium.

Angry Cowboys Fan
(This man is holding party passes, but he is not having a party right now. Not unless it’s an angry party, and nobody likes an angry party.)

That’s because, according to Cowboys fan Hector Murillo (seen above) and thousands of others, the Cowboys locked them out of the stadium, despite the fans holding “party passes.” Oh, just because you bought a ticket to the game doesn’t mean you get to watch inside the place; you hadn’t heard?

Speed Read: Romo, Jones Have Different “Picks”

Usually, Tony Romo saves his worst for last, shining as the season begins but falling apart in December and January. But hey, last night was kind of a big game - it was the first “official” game at the new Cowboys Stadium, and it was a national TV audience against the arch-rival New York Giants. So I guess you can’t blame Romo for reverting to his late-season form and throwing up all over himself in the Cowboys’ 33-31 loss.

Tony Romo vs Giants

Romo threw three picks - including one that was returned for a touchdown - and generally looked more spooked than a race horse that’s just been hit with a firecracker. But despite this, the Cowboys actually led late, and it looked like Dallas might pull out an improbable victory. Read more…
