  • Karl Malone is a deadbeat Dad

    and had sex with a 13 year old when he was a Sophomore in college. Also fathered twins in high school that took years for him to ackowledge. Sounds like quite a guy. I hope this kid makes the Bills and "earns his money on his own". What an asshole.

    Dad Karl Malone a footnote in Demetrius Bell’s life

    If you’re a fan of NBA great Karl Malone, you might change your mind when you start reading this column.
    If you never heard of Buffalo Bills rookie offensive tackle Demetrius Bell, you’ll be rooting for him when I tell you his story.
    Bell was a seventh-round draft pick and two-year starter at Northwestern State, the same Louisiana school that produced cornerback Terrence McGee.
    Bell is the son of Malone, but the Mailman had no role in Bell’s success except passing along athletic genes.
    The two have had very little contact during Bell’s life. His mother, Gloria Bell, reportedly was only 13 years old and Malone a college sophomore at Louisiana Tech when Demetrius was born. Malone might have served jail time had her family asked the district attorney to file criminal charges.
    Bell didn’t even know Malone was his father until after graduating from high school. When they finally met, Malone told the 18-year-old Bell it was too late to be his father, and that Bell would have to “earn his money on his own.”
    In a 1998 story in the Salt Lake (Utah) Tribune, Gloria Bell said, “Demetrius is ashamed that his dad doesn’t claim him. But I’ve told him it is not his fault.”
    Malone also fathered twins while in high school. One of them is WNBA star Cheryl Ford. It took years to claim the twins, and now he and his wife, Kay, fully accept them as part of their family.
    But what about Demetrius? Doesn’t he deserve the same measure of love and recognition?
    I can certainly relate to Bell’s experience. I didn’t meet my father until after my 40th birthday. Our separation was under different circumstances, but I can imagine how difficult it must have been for Bell not having a connection with the man partly responsible for his existence. At least my father and I have a relationship now.
    As a first-time father, I can’t understand how any man could turn his back on his own blood. There’s a word for that, and it’s appropriate: Deadbeat.
    Fortunately for Bell, he’s doing just fine without Malone. Bell has clearly moved on with his life.
    “All of that’s behind me right now,” Bell said during a conference call Sunday. “I feel good I made it this far. Nothing against him, but I feel good at this time. If he would’ve been there, yeah, it would’ve been good. But if not, it’s even better. Everything is a plus right now.”
    Bell has come a long way as a football player in a short time. His high school didn’t have a football team, so he focused on basketball and was good enough to earn a scholarship to Northwestern State. He played in 88 games, with six starts, and was one of four Division I athletes to play basketball and football last season.
    Bell didn’t play offensive tackle until three weeks before the 2006 season opener at Kansas. That was the first of his 22 consecutive starts over the last two years.
    Whether Bell will stick with the Bills remains to be seen. Seventh-round picks are the long shots on a preseason roster. But a player of his athletic ability deserves a good look.
    “I’ve still got room for everything,” Bell said. “I think my strongest part is pass blocking. But I’m getting stronger by the moment. That’s a plus on my stopping the bull rush. Run-blocking is always getting better when I’m adding bulk and getting stronger. And technique- wise, it’s all about the coach teaching me his technique or what technique he wants. I think it’s all on the upside.”
    Here’s hoping Bell has a long and prosperous NFL career. He might never be as great in his sport as Malone was in his, but Bell has already surpassed his father as a man.

      Is there a statute of limitations on having sex with a 13 year old girl when you're 21 years old? Or does that family have to press charges in order for him to be charged?

          I'm sure there's a statue of limitations on that crime unfortunately.

          Morally and spiritually there's none for Karl though.

            Never liked Malone. That is pretty nasty stuff though.

            Bob Ramsey loves Karl Malone, especially because he was a play by play guy for him in college. Wonder if his opinion will change when he finds the guy he was covering was screwing a 13 year old.

            Have to say, the power of genes is impressive. Two of his kids that recieved none of his influence end up as professional athletes??

                    I just cannot imagine being that cold to someone who is your own flesh and blood. What a dick.

                        To be fair knocking up 13 year olds and having lots of kids by different women does fit into the life style of his fan base.

                          As a father of a four-year-old, I couldn't agree more.
