"Importing" apparently an NFL euphemism for "road trip prostitution"

    So sayeth Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. I'm not the least bit surprised by this, except that Bowe would be brazen and/or stupid enough to admit it ...


    Wonder if ESPN will hold Herm Edwards' feet to the fire over this?

    They are paying the women?

    At least in air fare and free hotel rooms.

    This isn't prostitution.

    Why should Herm Edwards' feet be held to the fire?

    He was coach then. I'd be interested to know if he knew about it.

    If what they were doing wasn't technically illegal, it's at least unseamly. Getting some strange on the road is one thing; pre-arranging to have it flown in is another ...

    Why is it so unseemly? Is it because it is NFL players? I bet this happens in corporate America also.

    I would say that Tiger Woods changed things for everybody in that regard.

    Unseemly? How about normal for pro athletes.

    Not prostitution.

    It does sound like a clever and productive use of social media, though.

    I am sure some of the players are married, if they are then what they are doing isn't the most honorable thing. If they are single, no big deal.

    They had to import women because all the local fans are so disappointed with the Chiefs that they don't stand a chance.
