Cowboys, the Law, & Drugs
 
This was discussed in another thread but it was a bit off-topic. I was curious, so I did a little digging and here's my list of Cowboys with run-ins with the law and drug suspensions (feel free to add if I left anyone out LOL):

Michael Irvin: need I say more, multiple incidents
Nate Newton: "That 175 lbs. of weed isn't mine"
Leon Lett: Multiple drug suspensions
Shante Carver: Alcohol abuse suspension
Clayton Holmes: Drug suspension
Quincy Carter: Released due to drug related issues
Bob Hayes: After retirement, distribution of cocaine
Larry Bethea: Convicted of grand larceny for theft of $ 64K....from his own mother.
Hollywood Henderson: While at Dallas Landry sent him to rehab. After retirement, crack, sexual assualt on teenage girls.
Rafael Septien: Aggravated child molestation
Dwayne Goodrich: Vehicular Manslaughter
Lance Rentzel: 1970, exposing himself to a 10 yr. old girl.
Pacman Jones: while his issues weren't done while a Cowboy, Jerry Jones didn't have to actively pursue him or give him a contract.

Let's not forget the 1983 "South America's" team drug investigation and the 1996 Training Camp "Party House".

I'll be real interested to see a response other than Dexter Manley's well documented issues. For the most part the Skins have kept a pretty clean house.

Here's a few jokes, in the same theme that I thought were funny:

How do you get a Cowboy to stand up?
[SIZE=4][SIZE=2]Say "Will the defendant please rise." [/SIZE]

[SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=2]Four Cowboys are traveling down the road. Who is driving? [/SIZE]
[SIZE=4][SIZE=2]The police officer! [/SIZE]

LOL. This is too funny. A nice break from the Favre talk.

Most teams, especially during the 80's, had their share of substance abusers, most with a special fondness for doing blow. The Redskins, unfortunately, have been no exception. Here are some cokeheads, roid freaks and a homicidal creep:

This thread is treading on dangerous ground. As Warren85Ellard has noted, the Redskins weren't exactly choir boys back in the day (granted cocaine use was much more common back then, from what I understand)

Vs the boyz i think we're on the shorter end of the drug use spectrum.

I didn't want to cause a major issue with this so if you want to shut it, please do.

Every team has their share of problems.

Sorry man. I didn't mean to rain on the parade. I enjoyed reading your post. I'd like to know more about South America's Team of 1983. As noted, the Redskins have had their share of guys that didn't walk the straight and narrow, but every team has. The Cowboys, however, seem to take the coke (sorry).

What about my main man Dexter?

Re: Cowboys, the Law, & Drugs
 
We can say what we want about the players Dallas has playing or played for them but the bottom line is we still have to beat them on the field no matter what they do off the field. Does it really make us look any better because our clean players have a hard time beating their bottom dwellers.

I'm surprised I haven't seen Dexter Manley's name up here yet.
