Legendary quarterback Dan Marino fathered a secret lovechild with a junior network employee and paid her millions of dollars to keep it quiet, it emerged today.
The former Miami Dolphins star cheated on Claire, his wife of 28 years, with Donna Savattere, a production assistant at CBS Sports.

I’m stunned....said football fan, Bill Cosby.
The money was wasted.
It bought him eight years or so.
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.
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?
I feel for the kid only.
First Carlton Fisk gets caught driving drink through a corn field and now this. It’s official. My childhood heroes have all officially now fallen.
you are on the list
“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.
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.
There is a child involved that will be hurt by this article. Couldn’t they just have kept quiet?
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. :-)
That’s only news if Marino is a registered Republican.
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 . . .
Well that oughta make the pregame show marathon more interesting.
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. :-)
More like Reproduction Assistant.
I see we have a coordinated media attack on the NFL now! They are working overtime to demonize everything NFL!
Well done sir. Well done.
woof woof.. all men are dogs yaknow.. at least he ain’t gay.
When was he voted into the NFL Hall of Fame? Maybe that had something to do with it...???
Yep, answered my own question. Millions given to protect his hall of fame induction...
