Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino is one of the greatest players of all time when it comes to the NFL and the argument can be made that he’s one of the smartest analysts out there when it comes to game coverage on Sunday. Unfortunately, it appears Marino may not be the smartest when it comes to being faithful to his wife now that news has broken out about the Hall of Fame quarterback having a “love child” with a former CBS Production Assistant.
What makes this situation even more bizarre–Marino paid Donna Savatterre millions to keep the story on the down low and even convinced her to move to Texas to help out with the situation.
As bad as it sounds, this type of situation seems to be a common thing when it comes to professional sports, but nobody could have predicted to see this happen with a star like Marino. Throughout his entire career on and off the football field, Marino had established a reputation for being a “good” guy and even celebrated his 28th anniversary with his wife this week–who he has six children with (two adopted).
Marino still works for CBS and is scheduled to work on Sunday as the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens prepare to square off against one another in Super Bowl XLVII. After all of that work to keep this story a secret, it’s crazy how Marino will now have to put even more work into turning his image around as he attempts to explain himself for this fishy (no Dolphins pun intended) situation.
