Steelers' Le'Veon Bell DISSES CINCINNATI ... In New Rap Song

11/3/2016 9:50 AM PDT
Breaking News

The Bengals ain't gonna like this one ... 

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell -- who's also a rapper -- just dropped a NEW TRACK taking aim at Cincinnati ... just 7 weeks before they're set to do battle on the field. 

The song is "Rapping Athlete" -- in which Bell spits the lyrics: 

"All these haters @ me ... 
You need to check my rap sheet ... 
You better take the backseat like you play in Cincinnati."

There's a ton of bad blood between the Steelers and the Bengals -- in fact, it was Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict who ended Bell's season last year during a Week 8 matchup.

As far as the rivalry goes, the Steelers have won 6 out of the last 7 matchups ... so, advantage Le'Veon. 

By the way, he also name drops Johnny Manziel ... saying he's balling the ex-QB -- but back when he was in college! 

Andy Dalton LUGGAGE ADVICE From Bengals Teammate

EXCLUSIVE

Andy Dalton's teammates want the QB to stop losing his bags -- and now, one of his defensive linemen is offering up some advice on how to prevent your luggage from going MIA when he travels. 

We spoke with Domata Peko at LAX -- who says he's NEVER had the Dalton problem ... but definitely feels bad for the guy after AD lost his bags TWICE in the same week. 

There's more to the clip ...

With Paul McCartney getting rejected from a Grammys after-party (possibly due to the bouncer not knowing who he was) ... we asked 31-year-old Peko if he would be able to identify the Beatle based on his face alone. 

What happens next might shock you ...

NFL's Wallace Gilberry I Had to Help That Family ... I Saw Their Faces

11/26/2015 12:35 AM PST
Exclusive Details

He's the NFL lineman who surprised a family of 7 in a Target store by picking up the check for a PS4 ... and now Bengals star Wallace Gilberry is finally explaining why he did what he did. 

Gilberry's story made national news when someone shot a pic of the 270-pounder approaching the random family Monday night and offering to buy holiday gifts for the kids. 

So ... why? 

"I just went to Target to get some clippers to trim my beard and I saw a family with a dad, wife and five or six kids. The kids were looking at the electronics and I could tell by the mom's face that she was upset about telling the kids they wouldn't be able to afford what they wanted."

"I went up to the family and asked them if they would mind if I bought the kids whatever they wanted. They said that would be so great ... the dad said he was starting a new job and money was tight."

So, Gilberry bought a PS4 and a bunch of video games -- "One of the kids was really excited about a game called Minecraft. I don't even know what that is, but he went crazy."

In the end, Gilberry dropped somewhere close to $800 ... but says it's not about the money. 

"One thing about me is that I grew up with my shirt on my back and that's it. Money doesn't define me. If I have a million dollars, I'm going to try to help a million people."

Awesome.

Katherine Webb Protect Player Penises NFL Network Violated Bengals

10/19/2015 2:32 PM PDT
Breaking News

Katherine Webb is pissed off that several of her husband's Cincinnati Bengals teammates had their junk exposed during a post-game live shot from the locker room ... saying their genitals simply are NOT for public consumption. 

The clip has been all over the web this morning -- an NFL Network reporter was interviewing Pacman Jones ... while several Bengals players were changing in the background. 

The shot clearly rubbed Webb the wrong way -- since she's married to Bengals backup quarterback A.J. McCarron -- and she went off on the whole locker room interview policy on Twitter: 

"I would rather my husbands ass/penis not be all over TV," Katherine said ... "Would you like to be filmed while naked?"

"Players should have their privacy."

Bengals lineman Andrew Whitworth was also furious about the situation -- saying, "Why do I have to explain to my kids why their dad is naked on tv? Time for a media policy change."

He added, "We work in large massive stadiums. There's plenty of other spaces to interview.   #NoExcuses."

Mohamed Sanu I Am Iron Man ... Marvel-ous Custom Cleats

9/27/2015 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It might be illegal to use J.A.R.V.I.S. in the NFL, but Bengals star Mohamed Sanu is still reppin' the Avengers leader (sorry, Cap) by rocking a pair of Iron Man inspired cleats to take on the Ravens Sunday.

Sanu is a HUGE comic book fan (probably figured that out by now) and his new kicks took over eight hours to create. They have special S.H.I.E.L.D. issued repulsor beams and missile detection technology. Kidding. They're just painted red-orange and gold ... but it works for him.

Yes, this officially makes Sanu a ... grid iron man.
