For those of you who didn’t know, former NFL star Terrell Owens is now playing Arena Football. Apparently, the players for his latest opponent, the New Mexico Stars, are not impressed.
What started out as your typical “coach being arrested for a DUI” (and insurance fraud, in this case) story took a bizarre turn when the cops found racist e-mails & “hard core porn” on Tampa Bay Storm’s football coach Tim “The Alter Boy” Marcum’s work computer. What’s “hard core porn” you ask? Apparently it involves women using a funnel & a fish, among other things like horses, to commit, uh, “unnatural acts”. And somehow, Bucs QB Steve DeBerg was also involved in the shenanigans . . .
WTSP news has the sordid details:
As Marcum was being questioned during a deposition he was calmly drinking water as he is shown a video of two naked women using a funnel and fish to commit an unnatural sex act. Marcum says only one condition makes it inappropriate and that would be if someone else was going to get into his e-mail. Marcum says if it is shared with one other person, who is a friend, he wouldn’t see a problem.
Marcum apparently doesn’t have a problem with the videos of women having sex with horses and other objects all found on his computer, which he viewed while he was supposed to be working. He was asked if he was being paid to look at that material and said he didn’t think so.
And while Marcum readily admits the owner of the Storm didn’t pay him and other staffers to look at hardcore pornography and racist e-mails and jokes while he was using company computer and working, when he was asked if he made it a habit to forward the e-mails he got he said, usually.
But Marcum wasn’t the only one forwarding the offensive e-mails. Bucs quarterback Steve DeBerg was one of the people who supplied Marcum with material. Marcum says he never asked DeBerg to stop sending the e-mails.
