Michael Irvin makes a disturbing statement about the allegations Michael Irvin has been pulled from NFL Network’s Super Bowl coverage for the rest of the week, and the Dallas Cowboys have made a disturbing confession about the incident.
Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday that Irvin will not do any NFL Network programming for a few weeks after the Super Bowl after a woman accused him of lewdness during a late-night talk show.
Irvin told Gehlken that he spoke to a woman – whom he did not know – during a brief conversation at a hotel in Glendale, Arizona.

The 56-year-old said he was confused by the conversation that led to the complaint. During an appearance on “Shan & RJ” on 105.3 The Fan of Audacy later that day, Irvin explained that NFL Network officials told him on Monday that he wanted to change hotels.

He said that he was asked what he was doing the night before, and that he told his superiors that he had returned from the hotel and went to his room.
He was told that there was a video of him having a conversation with a woman before that.
Then they showed on camera that I was talking to someone. I talked to this girl for about a minute,” Irvin said. “They didn’t show me that . They told me [that I was talking to him in the video].
I don’t know how it is or anything. That’s why they encouraged me. Because the girl said that I said something to her when we were talking.
Irvin said he had just returned from a night out with former Cowboys defensive end Michael Brooks. He admitted that he was unsure of what was said during the brief conversation because he had been drinking.
NFL Media confirmed that Irvin will no longer be a part of Super Bowl coverage, but there is no reason. Irvin, 56, has worked for NFL Network since 2009. The former Dallas Cowboys star also appeared on ESPN.
Irvin is known for his enthusiastic personality, which was on full display when he jumped in the air earlier this season to support Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (video here).
