NSW Blues deny any players involved in new sex tape leak on eve of Game I

first_imgAn explosive report in the Sydney Morning Heraldclaims the sex tape was leaked in an attempt to “sabotage” the Blues, and allegedly involves a NSW player.Speaking as the Blues landed in Brisbane, coach Brad Fittler said: “We’ve been made aware of it and it’s not him.”NSW assistant coach Greg Alexander told The Daily Telegraph: “For starters it’s not even one of our players.”Asked if it was an attempt to undermine the Blues’ preparations, Alexander said: “The timing of it. Please. Of course it is.“The day we arrive in Brisbane this happens. It’s just a stich up.”The NRL has launched an investigation over the tape, in which the identities of the men is unclear.The video, which was reportedly filmed several years ago, shows the alleged player in a sex act being described as a “dirty dawg”.If true, it would be the latest in a number of sex tape scandals which save soured the game.Last summer, footage emerged of Bulldogs forward Dylan Napa having sex with a woman during his time at the Roosters.Another video was released which showed the Queensland enforcer performing a sex act on himself while another man shadow boxed next to him.Owing to the fact the tapes were from several years ago, Napa received a hefty fine from the NRL but was not banned.Then in March this year, Panther Tyrone May was arrested and charged with two counts of filming and disseminating sex tape footage without consent.May was stood down under the game’s no-fault stand down policy.last_img read more

There may never be another football team anthem as

first_imgThere may never be another football team anthem as famous (or as cheesy) as the Chicago Bears’ “Super Bowl Shuffle” that was released in 1985.That song actually peaked at No. 41 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart that year, and the Bears went on to win their one and only Super Bowl title that season.The enthusiasm for the Arizona Cardinals is at an all-time high in the Valley, and that’s why Jason Devore, the lead singer of Authority Zero, did something about it — and it’s a million times cooler than what the Bears put together 31 years ago. Top Stories Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Devore is working on a new solo project with producer Derek Seidensticker and took out some time to write and record “Birdgang Battle Cry”.Here’s Devore’s explanation for the :41 clip, as explained on YouTube:So plain and simple I wrote and recorded a Cardinals “Fight Song”. A song to bring everyone together to electrify, fire up, unify, and inspire both the fans and the team they’re rooting for…the home town/State Arizona Cardinals. Growing up a local playing music , I feel it important that every city, state, and community should have something to be proud of and belt that brings them together as one voice. So, with the help of my good friend Derick Seidensticker I was able to record and present it to the Cards themselves so we’ll see where it may lead, but for now I present it to you. Call me crazy, but I hope you enjoy it. If you do and can get behind it please like it, share it, play it a few times over and again, and sing it loud! Hopeful it will stick and soar, but if for anything else, it was a lot of fun to do. Big thanks to my friend Jason Passaro for putting together the video and rally on friends! #birdgangbattlecryThe song was released on YouTube on Jan. 15, and has over 21,000 views.
