Kyler Murray has had an interesting offseason. The Arizona Cardinals quarterback is entering the final year of his rookie contract and wants a long-term commitment to the team.
So far, Murray hasn’t received one. He has been back and forth about his position with the team while waiting for a contract. At the moment, both sides are closing in on a new deal and hope to have one before the start of training camp.
Now let’s move on to the last one, which goes through a former hairdresser. Before we get started, it’s worth emphasizing that this is not a Deshaun Watson-type situation. Rather the opposite.
She didn’t have it and quit on the spot
Kyler Murray’s former hairstylist has stopped doing his hair after he asked her to wear pants when she showed up for their next date. She didn’t and quit on the spot.
Murray’s former hairstylist named Swanny told the story of what made him stop doing his hair during a recent podcast appearance. Here’s how she says it happened.
“One day he called me and he was like ‘Hey Swanny, when you come on Thursday can you wear pants?’ I don’t wanna wear pants I wanna wear what I wear, why the hell do I have to wear pants, and if you can’t control your eyes that’s one thing, and if your girlfriend’s insecure that’s is his problem. I’m 29, you’re 22? I’m a mom of 4, I work out every day, I serve you when you want… and you want me to wear pants? You could get the hell out.
I completely understand where the hairdresser is coming from. As a guy who doesn’t like to do things in pants, I get it. At the same time, he pays you and as long as he doesn’t ask you to wear a sexy maid outfit or whatever, it’s probably a reasonable request.
There are probably a few guys in the league where a weird request could go sideways. And the only reason I call Murray’s request strange is that he didn’t want the team to know. This part is a bit strange to me.
I don’t think this is a situation where you stop doing your hair. The request was probably to save some heat. If I had to guess, it probably had something to do with the fact that his girlfriend was there for the appointment and he didn’t want to hear about it when the hairdresser left.
