Big woop. When we start looking to sports players, politicians and actors for our morals then we are seriously gone as a nation. Moreno was forgiven by his wife 7 years ago. This is stupid that it is even brought up now. So what if he paid the woman. Apparently she has moved on and has a nice husband who is raising the child as his own. The 24/7 news cycle sucks!!!! Go back to the 30 minute a night news for God’s sake.

Perfect timing for the SB. The press loves nothing more than to destroy lives. Especially rich, “privileged” (and I’ll bet conservative) white guys.

Their daughter Chloe was born in June 2005, and is now being raised by Ms Savattere and her husband, whom she met after her relationship with Marino.

The child is alive and being loved and cared for. It must drive the pro-abortion ghouls in the leftist media nuts.

Who cares? Eddard Stark himself raised his own bastard son Jon Snow at Winterfell, in his own household. My rule of thumb is that if it’s good enough for Eddard Stark, it’s good enough for Hemingway’s Ghost.

“Who does he think he is? John Edwards?”

Well, if he had denied paternity and been a Democrat One-percenter, he would have been a hero like Steve Jobs.

Thank you, Perdogg. Now my comment about Marino. Who cares? This is a personal matter between he and his wife. Remember how the media use to treat the few weeks before the Super Bowl? I do... interesting interviews of the coaches, fascinating tours of the state in which the SB was held... heck, even great new recipes for your SB party. Now what? Media outrage over supposed antler spray, questioning Michael if he is really retarded, showing outrage over Flacco using the word, “retarded” and now this fluff. Meanwhile... the real story is how taxes are driving us under, our God given rights are being squashed, etc... Those are the real stories that affect our lives. An affair that Marino has doesn’t affect me one little bit. That being said... Go Ravens!

You are right. The man made a mistake , he paid for it, his wife forgave him, it’s nobodies business but his and those involved.

Media needs to sell some papers I guess.

His wife is much better looking than the other woman.
Sometimes men have to learn to control the little head.

She’s cute, but Dan’s wife looks great too.
Mrs. Marino is definitely not a Mrs. Petraeus.

Re:

Yeah, Bendy... Dan knocked me up, too!

See... my Marino Lovebot... has the same birthmark--

Guilty... on both counts!

Get a clue, Dan... Use protection!

What difference does it make? Dan... still needs 11 million Latino nannies to get a path to citizenship and membership in AARP!

Well, to be strictly CBS fair and balanced, you cannot help... but agree with Hillary--

That is so true, Bob... and besides pardoning Dan, I've issued an Executive Order making all criticism of Hillary unlawful.

Come along, Bend, you and your hookbot... have displeased the Masser.

That has been the case with 99.999% of the guys I know who have cheated. I get a look at the other woman and think "HER??? Dude, your wife is WAY better looking!"

Mrs. Marino’s brother is a morning drive disc jockey in Pittsburgh. He drops his brother-in-law’s name at every station break if he can manage it. Kinda creepy to realize now he must have known about this for eight years.

In the real world, I believe that Benjamin Franklin and his wife raised a bastard son that Franklin had fathered.

Men stray, people sin - not really anything new. :-)

My first foray into the fantasy genre, this George R. R. Martin "Game of Thrones" series. I'm on A Feast for Crows right now and loving every second of it.

HBO's Game of Thrones is outstanding, too. But as a non-subscriber, I have to catch it on Netflix . . . I cannot wait to see how they did season 2 . . .

Marino’s sister (I think his youngest one) is married to Larry Richert. Claire Marino (I forget her maiden name) was from the South Hills. I grew up in S. Oakland...and though this doesn’t phase me (he supported the child—no abortion), I’m suprised that it’s a “big”’story. I knew the family well (my mom was very good friends with his maternal grandma, Jul. FWIW, Claire and Dan adopted two little girls (from China I believe) after their bio kids (one autistic) got older.

Well, Danno always DID have a “quick release”...

I guess he didn’t use the “gloves” on ALL appendages. :-)

When was he voted into the NFL Hall of Fame? Maybe that had something to do with it...???

The birth also came two months before Marino was inducted into the Hall of Fame

Yep, answered my own question. Millions given to protect his hall of fame induction...
