IRVIN ADDRESSES QUESTION OF ABUSE PROBLEM
Published April 10, 1996
In an interview with ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Cowboys WR MICHAEL IRVIN said he did not believe he has a substance abuse problem and responded to criticism of his demeanor while testifying before a grand jury prior to his indictment on drug possession charges. Irvin did say he had spoken with NFL officials. Irvin, on drug use: "In life all we can ever do is go off what's been done in the past. I've never had a substance abuse problem in the past. Why all of the sudden should I have it now?" On his image: "I'd rather be locked up as Michael Irvin than free pretending to be someone I'm not" ("SportsCenter," 4/9).
