Marcellus Wiley on NFL Hotel Sex Parties: ‘Of Course it Happens’

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe blew the cover for NFL players when he shared a story about his teammates setting up a hotel sex party during a road trip to San Diego. While it’s not surprising to hear that this stuff goes on, it’s a shocker to hear a player speak about it openly to the media (Bowe wrote it as a contribution to ESPN the Magazine). Former NFL player and current analyst Marcellus Wiley joined the Jorge Sedano Show on 790 the Ticket in Miami and discussed the Bowe story.

Wiley started off by saying that Bowe “broke the code” by publicly talking about a “dirty secret” like that. Wiley then shared a story that happened during his third year in 1999 when as a member of the Bills, they had a road trip to Seattle and had a similar setup to the one Bowe described. “There were a few ladies already setup, already there, already in the hotel,” Wiley said. His team wound up losing that game despite going 11-5 on the year.

Although Wiley noted that “of course it goes on, of course it happens,” he clarified by saying these organized groupie imports don’t happen every road trip, nor every other other road trip. That seems to make sense because you figure it takes a lot of time, money, and planning to orchestrate something like what Bowe described. Hitting up your girls in a given city the day before a game seems much easier to do. Wiley also estimated that 80% of NFL players cheat on their spouses/girlfriends. Any wonder why one of Bowe’s former teammates is trying to dispute the claims?

NFL Players Having Hotel Sex Parties?

We all know that there are plenty of things that go on with NFL players and NFL teams behind the scenes that remain “in-house.”  That’s the nature of any business, and I’m sure the league, players, and coaches prefer it to stay that way.  When it doesn’t you wind up with scandals like the Vikings sex boat fiasco. Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, did not shy away from giving the public a glimpse into the lives of NFL stars and sharing some of the fun activities they like to participate in while on the road.  Here’s what Dwayne Bowe shared with ESPN The Magazine for their “Postcards From The Edge” feature — which consists of anecdotes from professional athletes — courtesy of Pro Football Talk.

My rookie year, we were playing in San Diego. You hear stories about groupies hanging out in hotel lobbies, but some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room. The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it importing. Younger guys don’t have the money to do it.

Anyway, these girls had the whole top floor. They know everything about us — first and last names, sisters and brothers, salary. This one girl was talking to me like she’d known me for years. ‘Hey, D-Bowe, how’s Grandma?’ I’m like, ‘How do you know my grandma?’ She knew that I talk about her every time I’m interviewed for a story. I told her I had a girlfriend, but she didn’t care. She was wearing my jersey, sitting in my lap, making it look like we knew each other.  Then she took a picture and put it on Facebook. That almost got me in trouble.”

NBA Groupies Now Advertising in USA Today Sports Weekly

Now that he’s recently retired, my Dad has a lot more time on his hands for sports reading so he just began subscribing to USA Today Sports Weekly (in addition to the existing SI, Sporting News, and Baseball Digest magazines, of course). When he gets done with the mags, he passes them on to me and they join my hearty collection of sports-related restroom reading. While flipping through the Sports Weekly from two weeks ago, I noticed the most curious add. Here I was thinking that NBA groupies had progressed to twitter but apparently I was wrong. Very wrong. Check out this personal ad appearing to the left of the sports crossword puzzle:

In case the fine print is too small to read, it says “Beautiful, Distinguished Female 44 seeks friendship, more” and then it passes along the phone number. Before you go off calling the number, let me spare you by saying it takes you to a voice mail of this supposed female and it will cost you an international fee if you’re calling from the U.S. (250 area code is British Columbia). I really don’t know who’s behind that ad nor if it’s legit. It certainly is pretty crazy. Not to mention a waste of money; the ad is assuming NBA players read USA Today Sports Weekly cover-to-cover. Bad assumption but I’m sure the folks in Clearwater, FL don’t at all mind.
