Buccaneer Super Bowl Controversy In A Frenzy, Bill Callahan Fires Back
It’s really gotten totally out of control.
Tim Brown made the seemingly outrageous claim early this week that then-Raiders coach Bill Callahan “sabotaged” the 2003 Super Bowl, won by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brown seems to think that Callahan and then Bucs coach Jon Gruden were such good friends, that Callahan would become the modern day Shoeless Joe Jackson and basically throw the game, mess things up so much that his players had no chance of winning.
“Shocked, saddened and outraged,” is how Callahan has responded to Brown’s seemingly ridiculous claims.
Callahan, who is on the Dallas Cowboys staff, may have some legal options as well. He has called Brown’s accusations “dematory” and has basically demanded immediate retraction.
And in this case, it could be Brown hearing from Callahan’s attorney sooner than later.
As for the claims, former Raiders, including quarterback Rich Gannon, have lined up against Brown. Bill Romanowski and Lincoln Kennedy are in the Gannon circle of laughing off Brown’s claims.
“He’s dellusional,” is how Romanowski put it in a radio interview.
