As more and more athletes step off the playing field and into the celebrity gossip spotlight, our staff is taking a look at those that have become immune to the demands of their coaches.
These ballers are so whipped by their famous girlfriends that a red-faced Bill Parcells is nothing compared to a displeased Kim Kardashian. With that in mind, The Hollywood Gossip presents...
The All-Whipped Team.
Running back: Reggie Bush. The Saints star may claim he doesn't like being photographed next to Kardashian, but we could find an example, or several dozen, of times that he's joined her in front of the paparazzi. And it's not like he couldn't avoid reporters if he wanted to.
We've seen the guy in the open field.
Quarterback: Tony Romo. You'd think his girlfriend putting a jinx on his team would be enough of a reason for Romo to dump Jessica Simpson, but the pair was recently spotted out together. Again. We can only think of three reasons why:
Simpson's left boob, her right boob and her fatherly boob.
Third base: Alex Rodriguez. We know, he cheated on his wife, Cynthia Rodriguez. But A-Rod is whipped by society. Every action is choreographed and every word is politically correct because the man is afraid to be himself.
The man is more stiff in public than he was with Joslyn Noel Morse.
Back-up quarterback: If Tom Brady is seen holding Gisele's purse a few more times, perhaps he can supplant Romo as the club's starter.
Manager: Tiger Woods. He doesn't seem whipped at all. We just wanted an excuse to mention Elin Nordegren.
