Tony Gonzalez Locker Rooms Are Safer Now After Hollywood Scandals

11/16/2017 2:16 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tony Gonzalez says he was never sexually harassed in an NFL locker room ... but he's glad all the Hollywood scandals are putting athletes on notice.

"Stuff has changed. You gotta be more careful, and it's a good thing," Tony told TMZ Sports.

Gonzalez told us he's only experienced "guys in the shower messing around" ... and says all his former teammates knew not to cross that line. 

But even though the future Hall of Famer didn't have to deal with any inappropriate hazing himself, he's fully behind the cultural shift in acting and in sports.

Good to hear that from Tony -- considering he's serious about a career on the big screen.

EXCLUSIVE

Tony Gonzalez is putting Hollywood's A-List directors on notice -- telling TMZ Sports that guys like Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese need to get him in the game!!

FYI, the NFL legend's been dabbling in acting for a few years -- scoring roles in an "xXx" sequel and "NCIS" -- but Tony says he's starting to hit his stride after being "terrified" of cameras from the jump.

Not sure what upcoming movie he'd be best in -- our guy flopped trying to think of one -- but the bottom line ... Tony's ready.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce Dwayne Bowe Is a Strip Club God ... 'He Shuts it Down'

11/7/2017 4:35 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chiefs superstar Travis Kelce says Dwayne Bowe's stripperpalooza ain't as crazy as we all think -- 'cause droppin' over $1K PER MINUTE at the club is pretty standard for his former teammate.

"It's the Dwayne Bowe show, baby," Kelce told us. "He shuts it down. That's what he do."

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Bowe went HARD at VLive in Dallas on Saturday -- making it rain $25k in just 20 minutes!!

Some people think Dwayne went a little overboard -- but not Travis, who says D-Bo's the man for keeping it all the way real.

Ezekiel Elliott Cleared to Play Again Screws More Fantasy Owners

11/3/2017 7:19 AM PDT

Did you drop Ezekiel Elliott from your fantasy team this week amid rumblings his 6-game suspension was finally gonna stick???

Well, guess what dummy ... HE'S BACK! 

In the seemingly never-ending saga of will he/won't he play this week -- the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has granted Zeke's request to prevent the league from immediately enforcing his domestic violence suspension. 

So, what does it all mean? Simply ... he's cleared to play the Chiefs on Sunday (big game) -- and then his fight is back on. 

The next phase -- a 3-judge panel will hear the case and issue a ruling, which the losing side will undoubtedly appeal. 

Should be resolved by the time Zeke retires. 

Marshawn Lynch Goes Beast Mode On Train 'F**K Tha Chiefs'

10/20/2017 7:16 AM PDT

Here's Marshawn Lynch proving an ejection on national TV can't take the Beast out of his soul, leading an Oakland train on an explicit (yet awesome) chant dissing the rival Chiefs, moments after the game.

BTW, the guy who started the fight that led to Lynch's ejection, Chiefs player Marcus Peters -- a close friend of Lynch -- was ON THE TRAIN with Marshawn getting the business.

Marshawn got booted from the Thursday night's contest for making contact with an official during the fight, then snuck into the stands to watch the game with the people (not joking).

At some point in the night Lynch & Peters took the BART public transit system, and led all the Oakland faithful in a "F**k The Chiefs" chant to celebrate the team's much needed last second win.

Not sure what Marshawn's penalty from the league will be just yet, but we are sure about one thing...

He doesn't care.

Breaking News

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor says he flipped off and cussed out hecklers at Arrowhead Stadium on Monday after being called the n-word. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Pryor was definitely being cussed at as he walked into the tunnel following the 'MNF' game against the Chiefs. He shot back with a middle finger and an F-bomb.

Now, Pryor says he reacted after things had gotten racial.

"Being called a n***er several times to the point where an NFL employee had to step to me and stand by me the whole game from 2nd quarter on is the exact reason why guys are kneeling during anthem," he wrote in a statement.

"As I walked in tunnel hearing some one call me a n***er and say F you to me ... flicking the person off is more deserving."

"I do apologize to my teammates and the organization. But at some point you keep calling us the N word .. we going to start acting up. #straightlikethat"

For the record, TMZ Sports has 2 videos of the incident and we didn't hear a fan say the n-word. Pryor WAS cussed at and insulted about Ohio State.

Exclusive Video

Here's how NOT to take an L, brought to you by Redskins star Terrelle Pryor -- who went buckwild on a heckling Chiefs fan after their MNF game.

As he's entering the tunnel, the wideout drops an f-bomb and 1-finger salute on the heckler -- which got more K.C. fans to clap back.

But Terrelle REALLY lost it when the same guy called him a "little p*ssy" ... to the point where a team staffer had to step in and restrain him. At one point, Pryor acts like he's going to swing his helmet at the fan but stops himself. 

Terrelle had another up-and-down game, and Washington blew an early lead ... but dude, chill.

Chiefs legend Neil Smith just became even more legendary in Kansas City ... rescuing a woman he says was "about 9 months pregnant" trapped in a K.C.-area flood on Tuesday.

It all went down in Lee Summit, Missouri ... where Smith drove by a woman whose minivan was stalled on a dangerously flooded road.

The 6-time Pro Bowler quickly rushed to her aid -- using his 6'4'', near-300 pound frame to guide her out of the waist-high water. 

"I was just in the right place at the right time," Smith told FOX 4 News in K.C. "She was very short, so I had to walk her out of there."

The flooding has reportedly led to at least 160 rescues and 1 death ... and the former superstar lineman may well have prevented another.

KC Chiefs Trainer 'On Cloud 9' After Learning He Saved Gay NFL Player's Life

6/25/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here he is ... the KC Chiefs trainer who helped save a closeted gay NFL player from killing himself, David Price, tells TMZ Sports he was "elated" to find out he had such a positive impact.

The player is ex-offensive lineman Ryan O'Callaghan -- who recently came out publicly on Outsports.com after keeping his sexuality a secret during his entire football career.

O'Callaghan -- who played for the Patriots and the Chiefs -- says he was in a dark place toward the end of his career and was on the verge of suicide ... until Price stepped in.

O'Callaghan says Price simply cared enough to talk to him and realized something was wrong -- and convinced him to get help from a team psychologist. That got the ball rolling for O'Callaghan who says he's now in a MUCH healthier mental state and loves life.

We spoke with Price who says he was unaware how important he was to O'Callaghan until he read the Outsports article this week ... but couldn't be more proud of his former player.

"I was just elated, I mean on Cloud 9 that I had that much impact on somebody's life in a positive way."

Price says helping O'Callaghan was a "no brainer" -- and he's confident other people in the league would have done the same thing.

EXCLUSIVE

KC Chiefs rookie QB Patrick Mahomes has a rocket for an arm -- in fact, he once threw a baseball 96 MPH!!! 

Mahomes was a baseball star in high school before focusing on football -- plus his father, Pat Mahomes, was an MLB pitcher for 12 years.

So, we asked if he could still fire the rock -- and he told us he really believes he could hit 100+ if he got back in the baseball groove.

For the record, Patrick once threw a football 62 mph -- on video.

If he says he can hit 100 mph with a baseball ... we kinda believe him.

The future Hall of Famer rolled into Jay Glazer's Unbreakable gym in L.A. this week to train up Ross Travis -- a former Penn State basketball player who signed with K.C. in 2015 in the hopes his skills can translate to the football field. 

Tony and Ross went over blocking techniques -- while Sylvester Stallone was right next to the guys doing his own training regimen. 

By the way, Ross didn't do much on the field last season (playing behind stud Travis Kelce) but he killed it in locker room basketball trick shots.
