    MERGED:Ireland’s, Fins’ arrogance unacceptable, Mike Silver rips Ireland and the Fins

    In fairness to Ireland, the Dolphins’ habitually brusque treatment of their current and prospective players is purely a Parcells production. Unfortunately for the general manager, he’s about to be unmasked as an A-list A-hole.

    Last Wednesday, the night before he was selected 24th overall by the Cowboys, former Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant(notes) told me that during one of his predraft visits, a high-level executive of one NFL franchise had asked him if his mother, Angela, was a prostitute.

    “No, my mom is not a prostitute,” said Bryant, whose background – including his mother’s lifestyle and past legal troubles – was under great scrutiny prior to the draft. “I got mad – really mad – but I didn’t show it.”

    I’ve since been told by a source close to Bryant that Ireland was the person who asked the question during a meeting in the GM’s office. On Monday, Ireland declined to comment on the allegation. Harvey Greene, the Dolphins’ senior vice president of media relations, said: “It’s our organizational policy that we don’t discuss publicly the process we use to evaluate potential draft choices.”

    That’s a wise idea given the demeaning, offensive and possibly actionable evaluation process that was used to assess Bryant’s fitness to catch passes for Miami, a franchise that apparently holds nothing sacred in such contexts.

    These media outlets need to STFU.

    Stop whining because Parcells/Ireland won't give you anything to write about. If you're bored go interview Fat Ryan - he has plenty of nonsense to tell you.

    maybe Ireland was interested in his mother, let's not jump to conclusions that the question was meant rudely

    if true, i think thats the point... you can hit him with something that harsh and see his reaction... how's his temper? how will he handle authority telling him things he doesn't want/like to hear? etc...

    Questions like these re always asked by NFL teams. Is it wrong, absolutely. The thing is when you are spending millions on players all your bases need to be covered.

    I also find it mess up that Bryant wants attention drawn to himself by letting this get out.Shows that the reports of him being a diva were true.

    They will do anything in their power to make sure this franchise doesn't reflect poorly on their records and reputation.

    Don't worry about how they do it. They do it too well to question it.
    I just want to win.
