Parker: Reaction goes out of bounds

October 15, 2005
Broncos QB Jake Plummer called me on my cell phone Thursday night, and in a profanity-laced tirade, shredded me and Broncos fans like a worn-out jersey.

His beef? My Thursday column about Kollette Klassen, a second-year Broncos cheerleader whom he introduced at a party for his foundation - attended by hundreds Monday night - as "my lovely girlfriend."

He had a fit because a morning radio show picked up the column item and accused Klassen of being a "jersey chaser."

Sorry, but I never said anything derogatory about her nor did I accuse her of "jersey chasing," a term I was not familiar with.

Plummer, in his "expletives undeleted" attack, later broadened his accusations to Broncos fans.

"You think Denver has the greatest fans?" he spit at me. "Well, they aren't."

His fear: Fans would somehow single out Klassen at games and give her a hard time.

Puh-leeze.

Yes, Broncos fans (and I count myself among them) can be a rowdy bunch, especially when the Raiders come to town. But I've never witnessed, nor have I ever heard, of anyone being nasty to a cheerleader.

Colorado Avalanche winger Dan Hinote (Plummer, when I asked him, said he had never heard of him) dated Broncos cheerleader Renee Herlocker for a time. After I wrote about the couple, I didn't get any reports of harassment toward her. Or calls from Hinote.

Jake could take a lesson from former Broncos great John Elway, the most famous person in Colorado. Elway has had to live out his career and personal life in the press, and while he's had his fits of pique, he's dealt with it for the most part with grace and dignity.

They are in full denial mode over at Orange Mane.

Because it could well be a lie. What credibility does this reporter have? It's highly unprofessional to go after an athlete in the press over a personal matter, regardless of what was said or wasn't said.


Have you heard the phone call? i think not.

The point is, I could care less if he actually made the phone call and went into a profanity laced tirade. I could care less who he's going out with. I could care less if this Parker chic got her feelings hurt. Jake isn't making stuff up here. The Broncos fans haven't been great to him. Some of that goes on him, some goes on us.

Nothing like someone flying off the handle about nothing like that. That's actually pretty damn amusing if you ask me.

He must either have a wife, or some other girlfriends. That's really the only reason I could see for that kind of freak out. "Holy Shit, this writer just ruined my game".

Finally, someone with a non-homer take:


If indeed Jake did call her and go off as described then he owes HER an apology. And if he did, also it makes me wonder about the smarts of our quarterback. Go off on a gossip columnist...WHAT did he think she would do? They LIVE to get that kind of response...more fuel for the fire!

The whole issue is stupid...but Jake may be dumber than a stick if he did this. thwack

Deflection? I flat don't care. I'm trying to find it in me to care what some two bit gossip columnist thinks of Jake Plummer, but so far I've come up with nothing.

I think it's more of a statement about the kind of season that you guys are having that you desperately cling to any bad news you possibly can, no matter how dubious or uncredible the source is.

Besides, it's not like Plummer lost his playbook and we lost every game since then. We're 5-1 and leading the division.

Whatever. Are you saying Jake Plummer was misquoted? We could be undefeated and we would still poke fun at this. Also, we're A GAME BEHIND YOU. Yeah, we're having a HORRIBLE season.

Is that like half the posts about the Chiefs on the mange??? I could care less one way or another, but you are calling the pot, black mr. kettle... Every time I am over on that board browsing their are posts on the main page about the Chiefs.. To come here and make a response like that is childish..

If this were last year when Jake was your savior and going to lead you to the superbowl, your behavior would be different.. But now that you know he is a worthless QB, you could care less on how he impacts your team...
