SB Nation - So Chris Rix went on Jay Mohr’s radio show and it may not have been the best idea in the world. Rix called in to specifically talk about Darnell Dockett. The resulting conversation triggered a lot of anger from Dockett, and hoooo boy Twitter is amazing right now.
And a quick transcript:
Rix: I was surprised AJ [McCarron] would come back. He’s a humble, quiet guy. He’s got the girl. He’s got the ring. I wouldn’t think he would need to do that. But I give him a little credit for standing up for himself. But there were all these jokes about Darnell and what his preference was in college, if I might, because there was a few incidents of him hanging out with some dudes in the union and stuff…
Mohr: Did guys make fun of Darnell Dockett’s sexuality to his face?
Rix: Yes they did. He would get defensive at times as most guys would. But let’s just say there were a few questions of why is Darnell hanging at this dude’s house or this guy’s dorm room a little bit more than you’re used to hanging out at guys’ door dorms.
Speaking of dorm rooms, we’re hanging out at Burt Reynolds Hall, which is the dorm where underclassmen stay at Florida State. My room was right next to Greg Jones’ room. They’re hanging out playing video games, Madden was just getting big at this time, and we had both of our doors open.
I remember hearing Mike Boulware and Greg Jones, it was their room, and Darnell and some other guys were hanging out. Long story short, Darnell was making fun of Greg Jones, we were just freshmen, and Darnell was a year older than us. He said something that rubbed Greg Jones the wrong way — I don’t know if it was questioning his toughness, they were measuring their biceps, two big dudes. He said something that Greg didn’t like. Greg picks up Darnell Dockett — you know Greg Jones of the Jacksonville Jaguars, clearing the way for MJD for years — he picks him up WWE-style and slams him through that coffee table that they have inside of your dorm room. Classic story. Let’s just say Darnell never said anything that would offend Greg Jones from that day on.
Well at least this explains why Darnell Dockett is such a catty shit talker and drama queen on Twitter? Dude is gay. I mean it’s pretty clear at this point. Nobody reacts this strongly to being called gay without 100% being gay right? Setting up street brawls to prove how tough you are? No wonder he wanted to box McCarron. Overcompensating for being light in the loafers. And I guess it’s no wonder why he was so blatantly flirting nonstop with Katherine Webb talking about how hot she is. Obvious much? Hey Dockett bro it’s 2013. Nobody cares anymore. Loud and proud homey.
