The Redskins headline I’ve been waiting to write!

Wife of Redskins GM Scot McCloughan, Jessica, tweeted (and deleted) the following to ESPN (and former NBC Washington) reporter Dianna Marie Russini (who was a guest on our podcast last year):

Black Sports Online grabbed the Tweet, which was apparently sent the other night, before it was deleted. Mrs. McCloughan had also previously tweeted Russini:

The Redskins promptly claimed that Jessica’s account was fake. They were lying. Jessica issued a statement to Pro Football Talk:

“I deeply apologize for the disparaging remarks about an ESPN reporter on my personal Twitter account. The comment was unfounded and inappropriate, and I have the utmost respect for both the reporter and ESPN. I regret that my actions have brought undeserved negative attention to the Redskins organization and its leadership. My comments in no way reflect the opinions or attitudes of the organization and I regret that my behavior has in any way negatively impacted the team and its loyal fan base.”

I have the utmost respect for both the reporter and ESPN. Yeah, OK. Sure ya do.

So did ESPN:

“Dianna is an excellent reporter who should never have to be subjected to such vulgar comments. We are obviously extremely disappointed by today’s developments.”

So, recap: The wife of the Redskins’ GM accused an ESPN reporter of blowing her husband. Stop. The Redskins – maybe the worst organization in professional sports – claimed the account was fake. Stop. Because they’re the Redskins, they were lying. Stop. The GM’s wife apologized for being a gigantic bitch. Stop.

Background: Russini has been crushing the NFL and NFC East-ish beat over the last few years. She made a name for herself while at NBC Washington and, admittedly, got an impressive amount of scoopage. But it’s worth noting that McCloughan has only been there for about eight months– Dianna’s been breaking news for several years. She’s been the recipient of ostensible cheap shots from Howard Eskin about the quality of her reporting, but typically her information turns out to be accurate. She was recently hired by ESPN, and just this week broke the news about Kirk Cousins being named the starter. Redskins tight end Niles Paul said he’s been wondering who the snitch was.

Whether it’s true or not, I’m team Dianna. If it’s not true, then the Redskins have just hit peak hilarity and the preseason hasn’t even concluded yet. The wife of the GM throwing out BJ accusations to a reporter, on Twitter, is the sort of thing that gets scrapped from a Ballers script because no fucking way that happens. And Dianna is 100% a victim who’s going to have this attached to her name forever, which sucks, but will get the DC lawyer of her choosing to sue the pants off the McCloughans and the ‘Skins. If it is true, McCloughan is an absolute idiot befitting his organization, and Russini is Zoe Barnes-level resourceful, but will have some serious work to do on SEO for her name. Either way, the Redskins are a disgrace and nothing excuses some of the abuse Dianna is taking on Twitter right now.

    1. I don’t know about wife beater, but definitely looks like a guy that would yell at his wife in public. I could see them in line at a shopping mart and she suddenly remembers she forgot to grab an item and wants to go get it. He then gives her a verbal lashing and tells her no way and to forget it. She remains in line in near tears while the cashier and bag person feel awkward.

    1. I still don’t understand where the K Sea references come from. All I notice is people have to spell it wrong or it gets blocked?

  1. I want to have a couple beer s with Jessica. She seems like a great ball buster who would also be game for anal

    1. You know racial jokes are definitely in Jessica’s wheelhouse .

      I thnk something in the DC air makes people unfaithful.. Everybody cheats in DC

  2. She’s pretty and seems to be a really decent journalist. Why don’t we get to have any of those? All we get is Jillian Mele shooting off her daily Twitter Eagles “hot takes” that are akin to Desean Jackson talking about Tolstoy.

        1. Hahahah everytime i see jillian on TV or posting selfies I think tit freckles because of this fucking site

      1. BOB is a terrible show, as I am trying to debate who is the worst on that show? I only see the reruns on the weekend, and its entertaining because its such a trainwreck. Barrett Brooks contributes nothing to the show unless the Eagles are mentioned, as its funny watching them talk Flyers in a segment as he could put his head down and catch some sleep. Sarah Baicker is just plain annoying, and I think following her on Twitter hasn’t helped as she is a drama queen about everything. Rob Ellis should not be the star of the show, as he does have ‘it’, as he is better suited for the 6PM-10PM shift on WIP. Jillian Mele is cute, but she gets political on Twitter and is a raging liberal who is always championing her causes.

        1. I meant who has a more annoying voice: Leslie Gudel or Leila Rahimi. You wonder how these people get jobs in an industry where your voice is the most important thing?

          1. I do. Not even close. Compared to me, the babykiller is positively melodious.

  3. As much as I don’t care for this sorry excuse for a football club, she probably said on behalf of many what we all think about Espn. I give her some kudos for that. Take care of your business.
    That network is not even a hot mess, they are a disgrace like that ASSHOLE josh innis for telling kids to do drugs & hate Tim Tebow because he’s a Christian

  4. Wait, I take that back, I just saw some other pictures of he. Huge nose, total butter face. Id only fuck her dumper, face down.

    1. That’s why I believe the GM wife. Butterface can’t get any scoops just by smiling pretty and teasing. She has to do the deed.

  5. Big fucking deal move on. Name calling ball busting never hurt anyone in the media. Part of the fucking territory just ask the local radio & TV media

  6. Kyle, did you change more than ten words from Deadspin’s post? Can’t wait for your next whiney post about how other sites have stolen your journalistic hard work.

  7. K sea sucked off Mike Jerrick to get the weathergirl spot on Fox….whatever you gotta do to get ahead

    1. hey Kylie finally let one of my comment s through and it’s the one about the chick he still jerks off to

  8. Heidi Watney blew the entire red sox infield….Varitek had to get a divorce…..Erin Andrews does the same thing, she’s known for banging her fair share of athletes

    1. It’s a well known fact Leslie gudel used to fuck all the Phils back in the late 90s & early 2000s. Heard so many classic stories about that

  9. Dick Jerardi used to take it up the ass from Barbaro. That’s how he got the inside info for pickin his trifecta

  10. I’m not saying that she wouldn’t blow somebody for information, but she ain’t blowing this guy. He’s ugly like Mark McGwire without steroids.

  11. These comments actually made my Butler ‘Jeeves’ chuckle. I immediately suspended him for a week. We NFL owners hold ourselves to a higher standard and will never succumb to this type of gutter humor.

  12. That cuz morning show is fucking brutal. Seems like everytime I turn it on all I hear are white trash sounding dudes singing

    1. the baldy songs are awful, the bitch and complain line has turned into 5 seconds of 97.5 fame for singing a song about baldy.

      people who are doing that should be embarrassed of themselves.

    2. never thought I’d like Cuz’s show, but at least it doesn’t have super annoying Shirley and any of the Dirty 30 schmucks calling in!

      1. The cuz’s show isn’t appealing so much because of what it has as what it doesn’t have. And once in awhile they actually talk sports.

  13. Yo Diana! Throw me some head, you slore. Low and inside, baby. I’ll knock that shit out the park, yo.

  14. Yo Diana! Throw me some head, you slore. Low and inside, baby. I’ll knock that shit out the park, yo.

  15. So you guys kept the guy who calls people N!gger at a concert but the Skins are dysfunctional??? LOL go count your SB wins.

    1. we have as many as you. Super Bowl = NFL Championships. Eagles have three of those. just because they came before they renamed the championship game to the Super Bowl doesn’t take away the fact they were NFL Champs three times. loser.
