Imagine that someone’s NFL dreams all came to an end because his teammates caught him with his pants down. Literally. That’s the story of what happened with one player, according to FOX NFL reporter Jay Glazer.
Glazer was the subject of a profile for GQ (read it all here). It’s a good profile and talks about Glazer’s personality and how hard he works to get all his reporting scoops. Glazer only shares and reports a tiny fraction of all the information he has, which means a ton of stories he knows about never become public. But Glazer decided to share one great story in the GQ profile.
According to Glazer, one NFL player quit football because his teammates caught him masturbating.
Here’s the quote from the GQ piece.
“They have, like, a computer room where the guys can go study film. And somebody caught him. Pants right down, going to town. And I guess he caught wind that they were gonna make fun of him, and [snaps his fingers] gone. He quit football. Never went back. Man up, man! It’s not like nobody else does it!”
I’m not sure what’s worse: That a guy actually quit football because he was too embarrassed, or Glazer saying that other guys do the same thing (in the film room??!!)? I can’t imagine the player was very good, because good players wouldn’t just quit football because of that. Or at least I don’t think they would have. Still, that’s no way to go out. I mean how do you explain that to your friends and family? Uhhh I quit because they caught me jerking it. What do you say to them? Go Paul Finch and just say it was a film room incident? Guess so.
