A shocked and outraged Bill Callahan responds to Tim Brown's allegation of sabotage

Cowboys offensive line coach and likely new play caller Bill Callahan expressed outrage and anger over allegations by legendary receivers Tim Brown and Jerry Rice that he purposely sabatoged the Raiders chances of winning Super Bowl XXXVII by changing the game plan 36 hours before the Oakland's 48-21 loss to Tampa Bay.

Callahan, who was then the head coach of the Raiders, released a statement late Tuesday, calling the claims ludicrous and defamatory. 

"I am shocked, saddened and outraged by Tim Brown's allegations and Jerry Rice's support of those allegations," Callahan said in the statement.  "To leave no doubt. I categorically and unequivocally deny the sum and substance of their allegation. To suggest otherwise, especially at this time when it involves the Super Bowl, is ludicrous and defamatory. Any suggestion that I would undermine the integrity of the sport that I love and dedicated to my life to, or dishonor the commitment I made to our players, coaches and fans, is flat out wrong. I think it would be in the best interests of all including the game American loves that these allegations be retracted immediately."
