NFL GroupiesNFL Groupies
It is fitting that right before the start of the NFL season Complex Magazine and Richard Boadu of 6magazineonline.com spoke to NFL Players around the league about their “Groupie Tales”.
If you have been reading BSO for any length of time none of what you are about to read should surprise you. If you are one of those naive fans who think there are still athletes who are faithful or are like Tim Tebowm then some of this maybe shocking.
I’ve picked out the most interesting ones and will give you a quick comment after each one. These are quotes from real NFL players.
How big of a problem are groupies?
“You really have to protect yourself. Now, not every baby mama is a groupie, but you see a lot of women seeking the benefits of NFL players. I try to be fair that women are naturally attracted to successful men and that [includes] athletes. But now with groupies, it’s a bigger beast.” – An NFC South Pro Bowler
“A big problem because a lot of guys that never really had ‘em before have ‘em now, and they don’t now how to act with the new attention. Groupies are really bad because they destroy homes. A lot of these players are married with children. These groupies don’t give a fuck at all about a man being married. They just care about themselves and what they can get out the situation.” – A free agent safety
“Not a problem unless you let them be a problem.” – One of the best defensive tackles in the game
Basically what they are saying is you have to control your groupies. That is all about the selection process. You deal with crazy groupies, expect crazy things to happen. The best groupies to have are the ones who are low key and discreet. That goes for any man not just football players.
What city has the ugliest groupies?
“Since they are small towns, Buffalo or Green Bay. They may have some diamonds in the rough though.” – AFC East rookie
That is hilarious.
Of the groupies that you’ve seen, what race are most of them?
“Black, but that’s just the environments I’m in. I hear other teammates talk about white girls and Latino girls being just as bad.” – An anonymous #57
I am sure black girls will love this quote. I think black women get a bad rap as being the primary race of groupies, in reality groupies come in all shape, colors and sizes.
What’s the most money you’ve spent on a groupie at one time?
“None…they’re groupies. You don’t have to spend money on ‘em.” – Free agent free safety
“This girl wasn’t a groupie, but a chick I was dating. Me and her went to hang out and it was $500 times 2 for travel, $300 for food, throw away money about $200, hotel about $800 and that’s $2300 for a three-day weekend. Now imagine if you have a groupie, and y’all are staying in the Fontainebleau in Miami and hitting clubs and buying tables. You can easily spend $5K without blinking.” – NFC offensive guard
The question was worded incorrectly. Just like anything in society there are different classes of groupies. Some women are just throwaways while others become side pieces. If you become a side piece it can be very lucrative. If you are going to be a groupie, have high groupie standards and try to get something out of the deal.
How do they get in contact with you?
“Social media mostly. They also give you the groupie stare at the club too. Just stare at yo’ ass until you speak to them. Be hypnotizing guys [laughs].” – NFL Pro Bowl lineman
“They just stare at us when we’re in the club. Like deliberately. It’s like you’re going to the dog pound, and they’re just waiting to get chosen. They will literally stare at you in VIP until you ask them if they want to come to VIP.” - An anonymous #24
“Mainly in the clubs. Anytime there is a big event like a Super Bowl or All-Star weekend, they are around. They make sure to get your attention by the way they dress or they’ll approach you. I’ve had girls slip their number in my pocket before. When they come up to me, they’ll say they’re your biggest fan or ‘I can tell you play football by the way you’re built.’” – Former NFC East safety
“You’ll see them digging you just by eye contact, and most guys go after those girls. A woman can’t make a man want her. A groupie is just an easy opportunity. They just be thirsty. Then you have the ones who play like they don’t know who you are. They know the rosters and they do their homework. Heck, she’s not bright if she hasn’t done her homework.” – An anonymous #96
“I’ve had a waitress see that I’m big by my size. Once she took my credit card for the meal, she remembered my name or wrote it down or whatever and gave me my receipt. Within five minutes of leaving the restaurant, I get hit up on Twitter, and it’s her with a nude twitpic talking bout ‘This is what I look like fresh out the shower after work.’” – An anonymous #75
Social Media is starting to replace the club as the preferred way to catch a baller. Twitter is nothing but a big brothel these days.
What’s the craziest groupie story that’s happened to you?
“In L.A. this chick domed me and my partners up. We left the room and our other homeboy went in to go fuck. We hear her moaning in the room, we’re laughing. And then all of a sudden we hear this weird noise. We thought she was choking him. We ran into the room to see what was going on, and it turns out that when he busted his nut, he threw up on her at the same time. Shit was hilarious and disgusting.” – NFL Pro Bowl tackle
“A girl was waiting outside my house. I wasn’t answering her calls or texts. Then all of a sudden she just started knocking on my door. I called the cops. [Laughs.] She knew I was inside, but I never came to the door because I had company. The police were calling her name outside and everything, talking about ‘[Player's name] called us and told us you were making a disturbance.’ And then she’s like, ‘Oh, so HE IS HOME!’ really loud. It was funny.” – Pro Bowl defensive lineman
“We meet this one chick and chop it up with her in the lobby. She says she’s down to suck us all up. Me and my homeboy stay down in the lobby at the bar and my other friend goes up to the room with the girl. We get up there about 15 minutes later, and the girl is crying. My friend is cussing her out bad calling her all types of hoes. She sucked him up, but I have no idea why she was crying. My homeboy that was with me at the bar went up to her and was trying to get a blowjob and she said she didn’t want to do it. She put her hands back in her face. His dick was already out so he’s standing next to her and all of a sudden bust on her shoulder. She raises up and was like ‘Are you serious?’ and just lost it and started laughing actually. It was pretty funny.” – Pro Bowl right tackle
“We were at the club one night. We had a table and there was a group of girls next to us at another table. There were about ten of them. Well my homeboy got to chopping it up and he fucked all 10 of them in one night. I have no clue how he did it.” – #29 who shall remain nameless
That last story sounds a bit suspect, but beyond that at least to me these stories are standard. So if you are shocked you shouldn’t be. It is just part of being an athlete or to be honest any man that has a little something going for them.
Having groupies isn’t just about playing ball. You could be the manager of the call center and have a few groupies.
Finally, a Pro Bowler’s parting words of wisdom:
“These groupies are a young man’s dream and a young man’s worst nightmare. You got money in your pockets for the first time. You’re getting $60k checks a week, and the finest women are at your feet willing to do anything you tell them. It’s so easy, but you just have to make sure you meet the right one and not meet the wrong one with wrong intentions.”
