Scott Weiland

Marsha Brady'd at

Notre Dame

9/11/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former Stone Temple Pilots front man Scott Weiland could never make it in the NFL -- and the proof is in the massive gashes on his face.

Scott Weiland

After the 41-year-old singer showed up to an event in West Hollywood Wednesday night sans a chunk of his cheek -- everyone was looking for some kind of explanation ... and finally, we got it.

TMZ spoke with Weiland's rep, who blamed Scott's facial damage on his inability to catch a football.

The rep says Scott -- who's a huge Notre Dame fan -- was tailgating at the game last weekend and throwing the pigskin around with a couple of buddies ... when he accidentally caught one with his face.

Judging by the damage -- whoever threw that ball has a friggin' rocket for an arm.

Getting hit with a football might give you a lazy eye like Stuart Scott but it won't give you road rash.

Hahaha oh please... everyone knows he and his wife like to beat on each other. And since when does a football have fingernails??? You don't get gouges like that from a ball.

I'm pretty sure Scott is still the frontman of STP.

I happened to be a few tailgates down from the action. The injury happened while he was "diving to catch a football". He didn't catch the ball, but his face caught a bunch of asphalt. He played through it like a man though :-)

"Take a bath i'll drink the water that you leave" I would lick Scott wounds until it heals.

yea I agree with #9, that's no football injury unless the pigskin's has got finger nails and his skin is barley hanging onto his face like Jacko's???

HEY IDIOTS!    

Why are you people still saying that this isn't the truth when there was an eye witness on here watching him fall on the asphalt and someone saw him at a hotel here in South Bend. Get over it and move on people!!

yeah, i also read that he was the star qb at his highschool. if you look above the round "puss patch", there is a cut going straight up and down when all the other scrapes go from front to back. maybe he was wrestling with "max" from tmz and his friends...remember max's black eye from the show ? hmmmmmm
