So news broke out today that Jerry Rice and Tim Brown have publicly expressed their belief that former coach Bill Callahan threw Super Bowl XXXVII because he hated his team and wanted Buccaneer’s coach (his old boss) Jon Gruden to get a ring.

Well, Callahan finally got word of what happened and has now posted a response to the accusations of the bitter players.

I am shocked, saddened and outraged by Tim Brown’s allegations and Jerry Rice’s support of those allegations. To leave no doubt, I categorically and unequivocally deny the sum and substance of their allegation. To suggest otherwise, especially at this time when it involves the Super Bowl, is ludicrous and defamatory.

Any suggestion that I would undermine the integrity of the sport that I love and dedicated my life to, or dishonor the commitment I made to our players, coaches and fans, is flat out wrong. I think it would be in the best interests of all including the game America loves that these allegations be retracted immediately.

Looks like the ball is in Rice and Brown’s court. Will they keep trying to prove their point by getting more former team mates to publicly support their opinions?

If they decide the issue is dire enough, Callahan may be in a world of trouble that no brief response could possibly erase.
