What occurs in Ohio, stays in Ohio? Not fairly.
Video and pictures of Jaguars head coach City Meyer surfaced over the weekend, with the Jaguars head coach caught in a, let’s consider, compromised place with a younger girl at a bar.
It was actually one thing that was awkward and greatest reserved for a highschool homecoming dance. It isn’t one thing you’d actually see from an 0-4 NFL head coach.
On Monday, Meyer revealed he was the person within the video, and stated he apologized to the crew, together with proprietor Shad Khan, the gamers and others for being a distraction. His rationalization, although, was a bit bizarre. Here is all of Meyer’s assertion:

I simply apologized to the crew and the workers for being a distraction. Simply silly. So I defined all the things that occurred and owned it. Simply silly. I shouldn’t have myself in that sort of place.
I stayed to see the grandkids, and all of us went to dinner that evening on the restaurant. There was an enormous group subsequent to our restaurant they usually wished me to return over and take photos, and I did. They have been making an attempt to tug me out on the dance flooring, screwing round and I ought to have left. …
I apologized once more for being a distraction. A coach shouldn’t be a distraction. In fact I did (apologize to my household). That is not me. They have been upset.
That, sadly for Meyer, wasn’t the tip of issues. Quickly after his apology hit the newswire, one other video of Meyer surfaced; This time the Jaguars coach might have been flagged for getting a bit handsy with the identical lady on the bar.
(Editor’s be aware: Barely NSFW.)
Meyer’s timeline of occasions are as follows: Thursday evening, the Jaguars lose to the Bengals on a last-second kick. Friday evening, he goes out to dinner with grandkids, and stays out to occasion with folks he (seemingly) is aware of.
Meyer’s spouse, Shelley, tweeted in response to Meyer heading out on Friday evening, as she was dwelling babysitting whereas the coach frolicked with associates within the bar.
Whether or not or not the occasion was a deliberate occasion or impromptu go to with followers is greater than a bit murky, given the tweets and Meyer’s assertion on Monday.
Meyer stated that the group “tried to get him on the dance flooring.” Clearly, he was trying to tango.
