Morris (Sort Of) Admits Clash In Denial

November 4th, 2009

While Raheem the Dream denied he and troubled cornerback Aqib Talib got into an F-bomb war of words in a London hotel lobby at 2 a.m., Raheem the Dream must have channeled his youth (possibly watching Soul Train as he did some dancing) when pinned down about the specifics of catching Talib and unnamed other Bucs blowing curfew.

Raheem the Dream claims the vernacular he and Talib may have used in the wee hours, was, well, normal for football men, as reported by eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune.

Morris didn’t say profanities weren’t uttered during the Oct. 25 incident with Talib, who was not made available for comment Tuesday.

“We’ve used swear words to each other every day,” Morris said. “I wouldn’t necessarily call it disrespect. That’s talk on the football field. It’s a form of communication. He (Talib) has always been as respectful as can be to a coach. Has he had some issues? Yes, there’s no doubt about it. We’ve got to control that. We have to help him get better.”

Joe’s trying to figure this out: So Raheem the Dream is the type of fellow to commonly use “football language” with his players in a swank if not posh London hotel lobby at 2 a.m.?

Also, as Kaufman pointed out, Talib was not made available by the Bucs media relations staff yesterday. If nothing truly happened, why is now Talib in hiding?

Or did he have to rush to a meeting with his legal counsel?
