Brett Favre May Be Headed To The Minnesota Vikings
Chris Cooley Talks About His Playbook Penis Showing Incident
Was it a joke, was it done on purpose or did he even realize he was taking a picture of his junk? Either way Chris Cooley has now been ordered by the NFL to seek mandatory psychiatric evaluation because what occurred that September day.
SI.com: OK, I gotta start with the penis incident. You OK with that? [Eds. Note: For those of you who don't know, Cooley accidentally posted a picture on his blog in which he was slightly exposed.]
Cooley: Yeah, dude, I don’t care. The whole thing just sucked because obviously it was an accident. I was trying to get a blog post up and I was hurrying because I had to get to a game. My brother Tanner, who does the blog with me, always edits stuff really well — but we were in a hurry. So it was an accident, but it sucked because we were both at the game all day and we didn’t know it was on the site.
SI.com: Do people still give you a hard time about it?
Cooley: Only in interviews. Only people like you. But the NFL made me undergo a psychiatric evaluation. They treated it really seriously. Please. It was an accident. If I wanted to post a picture of my penis I wouldn’t have been all hunched over.
SI.com: What was the result of the psychiatric evaluation?
Cooley: I don’t even know, dude. I had to do a call with some lady. I thought it was gonna take two minutes, but it was like an hour. It was horrible.
