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.

A Healthy Derrick Rose’s Bulls Are Better Than LeBron James’ Cavs

This time, we should know better. If there’s one thing sports has consistently taught us over the years, it’s that super teams do not work like magic. Recent history speaks for itself. Gary Peyton and Karl Malone joining Shaq and Kobe didn’t hand the 2004 Lakers an NBA title. Acquiring an ungodly amount of talent, headlined by […]

Russell Westbrook’s Broken Hand Will Certainly Not Help OKC’s Season

When one door closes, another opens. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.

When a particularly tricky brand of broken foot put Kevin Durant out of commission a few weeks ago, a […]

Do Men Think With Their D*cks? The Science Behind The Other Head

Every angsty Millennial female knows the old adage all too well: “God gave man a brain and a d*ck, but only enough blood to run one at a time.” Gabbing together at 2 am over a bottle of wine, jaded women would agree that all men want is sex, sex, sex — and then, more sex.

4 Ways To Throw An Epic Halloween Party Post-College Days

This Printer Can Self-Destruct Its Printed Messages After 60 Seconds

Here’s something cool for all you wannabe spies out there. A British photographer, Diego Pisanty, created a machine that prints self-destructing messages. The printer covers the paper in a flammable combination of potassium salts and glycerol gel. After 60 seconds, the chemicals burst into flames and effectively wipe away all traces of the message. Basically, it’s […]
