New Information in the Shady McCoy Story

Kevin Kinkead - July 10, 2018

Some more details tonight in the form of a letter from The Law Office of Tanya Mitchell Graham, which is representing Shady’s estranged girlfriend, Delicia Cordon.

NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo shared the statement on Twitter:

McCoy was originally accused of beating Cordon when a friend of hers posted a graphic Instagram message today showing a woman with a bloody face and several bruises.  The attorney statement makes it seem as if McCoy was not in Georgia but had someone else do the job instead. Garafolo reports that McCoy was working on a football field in Miami at seven this morning and “left the field” when he learned of the Instagram post.  That post was taken down and replaced with this:

Let’s Get Really Angry About the Eagles’ Madden Ratings

Kevin Kinkead - July 10, 2018

Madden ratings are out.

I admit that I haven’t played the game since 03′ or 04′, when my college friend from Pittsburgh used to run Jerome Bettis right up the gut on every god damn play.

A lot has changed since then, namely the Eagles winning the Super Bowl, so they top out as the highest rated team this season with a 90. The Patriots, who lost the Super Bowl, are second with an 84.

Individually, these are the Birds’ top five players:

I would probably have Lane Johnson in the top five, but I was very high on Brandon Brooks last year so it’s good to see him get an appropriate rating.

Here’s the next crop of Birds below the top five:

Roundup: What in the World is Going On?

JoyOnBroad - July 10, 2018

There have been so many stories involving national sports personalities and Philly teams today. From one pundit claiming LeBron should’ve chosen the Sixers, to another saying the Eagles will miss the playoffs, Tony Luke, Jr. dropping a track, Donte DiVincenzo’s bank account looking like an everyman’s, and plenty more.

Let’s start with professional sports troll and co-host of FS1’s Undisputed Skip Bayless:

I hate to admit it, but I agree. Kyle and I have discussed this numerous times on Crossing Broadcast, and after the news broke that the King was taking his talents to SoCal, we like many others pointed out that it clearly wasn’t a basketball decision.

LeSean McCoy Denies Abuse Allegations

Chris Jastrzembski - July 10, 2018

Bills running back LeSean McCoy posted a short denial to earlier accusations that he beat his girlfriend:

“For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false. Further more (sic), I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved for months.”

Given the informal nature of the denial, it appears this wasn’t a vetted statement.

UPDATE: LeSean McCoy Is Being Accused of Beating His Girlfriend

Kyle Scott - July 10, 2018

LeSean McCoy is being accused by IG-er MIA (@miamor_i_adore), an apparent friend of Shady’s girlfriend, believed to be Delicia Cordon (@decordon).

The picture was posted this morning with the following description, accusing him of domestic assault, child abuse, animal abuse, and drug use:

shadymccoy is THE DEVIL!!! YOU ARE AN ANIMAL!!!!!! We didn’t say anything about how you beat your dog “Henny” into kidney failure. Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you from VICIOUSLY beating your son for small things like peeing in the bed. We kept quiet about your drug usage … all the ILLEGAL steroids and needles you were using, but we will not keep quiet about this!!!!!! I can’t believe you did this to my best friend!!!!! YOUR KARMA IS GOING TO BE SO REAL!!!!!! The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!!!!!!! This was just her yesterday on the left and now this morning this is her on the right!!!!

A check of the Instagram accounts shows that the woman in question – tough as it is to tell her distinctive features – is McCoy’s girlfriend, seen with McCoy in this picture posted in February:

And MIA and Delicia appear in several photos together on their respective IG accounts:

The story – at least the respective relationships – appear to check out.

This is not the first time McCoy has been accused of heinous activity. In 2013, he was embroiled in a party bus incident where he allegedly forcefully removed a woman on a trip to New York, this after he was wrapped up in public baby mama drama and was accused of having herpes. Marcus Vick later accused him of giving herpes to his girlfriend.

In 2016, he was involved in the beating of two off-duty Philly police officers, but he was never charged by since-convicted DA Seth Williams, who was a big Eagles fan and is believed to have known McCoy.

Now this.

If true, that should just about do it for Shady’s career.

UPDATE:

Not the first time a sentence like this is written about McCoy.

NFL: Snitch on Colleagues, Get a Reduced PED Suspension

Kevin Kinkead - July 5, 2018

I guess I missed this one yesterday while blowing out the rest of a sinus infection, both literally and figuratively.

Mike Florio posted a story over at Pro Football Talk titled “NFL’s PED policy encourages players to snitch.”

Florio writes that he was reviewing the NFL’s policy in relation to the Julian Edelman situation, when he came across a passage that explains how players can be rewarded for tattling on others:

The NFL Management Council may, prior to the conclusion of a Player’s appeal, reduce the length of the suspension and corresponding bonus forfeiture by up to 50% when the Player has provided full and complete assistance (including hearing testimony if required) to the Management Council which results in the finding of an additional violation of the Policy by another Player, coach, trainer or other person subject to this Policy.

Seems like a good policy. Snitch on somebody else for your own benefit. Then when that player only serves half of their penalty, I guess everyone now knows they’re a snitch.
