Sorry Bro: Sports Through Houser:
The world goes round. After The Dirty was submitted the claim that she liked to have sex an extreme (STDs!) amount of times, she took the website to court and the judge found the case in her favor; she is not a slut. She returned to being a teacher and it's a happy ending. How happy though? Well...
USA Today – Cincinnati Ben-Gals cheerleader and Northern Kentucky teacher Sarah Jones, who gained national attention by suing a gossip website that claimed she was promiscuous, is now the subject of two investigations. The lawyer for Cincinnati Ben-Gals cheerleader Sarah Jones said his client maintains her innocence. What law enforcement officials and educators will not say is what the 26-year-old Jones has been accused of doing. Lawyer Eric Deters, whose Independence firm represented Jones in the defamation suit, also wouldn’t say what the investigation was about but said, “Sarah Jones maintains that she’s innocent, that this is just a terrible rumor and it’s my understanding that the alleged victim denies it also,” Deters said.
Jones has since gone on several television shows, from 20/20 to Anderson Cooper, to speak about the embarrassment and public scrutiny she faced after the online posts. U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman awarded her an $11 million judgment for libel and defamation in August 2010 but lawyers for the website claim their client doesn’t have to pay it. The defendants have filed a motion essentially asking that the suit be dismissed. Bertelsman heard oral arguments on the motion Dec. 9 but has not yet ruled.
The local NBC affiliate reports that she initially resigned from Dixie Heights High School "after allegations that she had an inappropriate relationship with a student." Her attorney, Eric Deters, says there's nothing to the accusations:
"The student denies it, the parents of the student are upset that this has gone where it has gone, they don't have anything bad to say about Sarah, Sarah denies it," Deters said. "There's no victim. There's nobody saying 'Hey, this happened.'"
So far, Jones has not been charged in the case.
Reminder: Don't go on television to protect your reputation. That just makes more people aware of who you are and damage your reputation. Who knows, or really cares, about this story's ending result of this former Bengals cheerleader.
BEST OF MAXIM
As announcer Thom Brenneman said, "It's one thing to flip over a guy — it's another thing to land on your feet!"
Cincinnati Bengals receiver Jerome Simpson knows of what Mr. Brenneman speaks. With 2:46 left in the first half of Cincy's game against the Arizona Cardinals, Simpson ran a crossing route from right to left, caught a sideline pass from quarterback...
The Bengals have looked solid in the first half in Cincinnati, enjoying a 20-0 lead on visiting Arizona. They could be up 26-0, but Mike Nugent has had 2 uncharacteristic misses on field goal attempts and is 2 of 4 on the day. Andy Dalton has been productive and efficient in the first half, going [...]
The Brown family has increased its control of the Cincinnati Bengals.
The team announced Friday that the Browns have obtained the shares held through the Austin Knowlton estate. Investors in New York had made a deal for the shares that had been estimated at 30 percent of the club. But the Brown family exercised rights to match the terms to acquire the last major piece of the team...
Remember our good friend Sarah Jones who was once a member of the Cincinnati Bengals cheerleading squad? In October 2009, Bengals players called her saying they saw a posting on TheDirty.com claiming she had been seen around town with a Cincinnati Bengals player and had sex with the entire Bengals football team.
Jones eventually won $11 million in a libel lawsuit stemming from that...
EVERYBODY LOVES THE BACKUP
Even though he is reportedly healthy after sustaining a concussion last week, Arizona is benching Kevin Kolb and will instead start 2nd-year QB John Skelton.
Andy Dalton threw a pair of touchdown passes, and Cincinnati withstood yet another fourth-quarter comeback by Arizona, holding on for a 23-16 victory Saturday that kept the Bengals in playoff contention.
Six of the Cincinnati Bengals’ seven home games this season will be blacked out locally. One of the two U.S. Senators from Ohio believes that number should be zero. But not because he believes all non-premium tickets should be purchased for the games at Paul Brown Stadium. Senator Sherrod Brown believes that the NFL should…
