I just don't remember seeing any throat slitting, cocaine possession-probation, coverup, perjury related things on the Redskins lately....or ever. Maybe I'm off base.

The idea that an extramarital affair is not really different from slitting someone's throat over a place in line is retarded. So, do you think (a) that people who have affairs should be sentenced to years in prison, or (b) that people who slit throats should get no jail time? Because, if the two acts aren't really distinguishable, you should believe either a or b.

I know you think you are the purveyor of truth and the rest of us are blind, dumb, homers, but your perception of the Redskins and Redskins fans is downright comical. You and those blind homers are two sides of the same coin.

irish probably didn't cite the best examples. Even those would be suspect at best though.

The story of Ricky Sanders's hit and run, Rafel Cherry's murder of his wife (post Redskins years), Emmitt Smith's story instantly reminded me of Darrell Green of course. With Wilburn, Peters, and Timmy Smith (again post Redskins years) we've of course had our share of cocaine possessors/distributors.

I suspect there are worse things that the Redskins have done (that even I don't know, no Charles Haley's as best as I know), and other teams as well. But it seems as though what the Cowboys did back in the day is at another level. And this shouldn't be brushed aside, especially because they claim to be "America's Team"

Definitely online. On television, I suspect so. I haven't been watching the past couple of days so I can't say for sure.

Re: Boys Will Be Boys: The Glory Days and Party Nights of the Dallas Cowboys Dynasty

The book is called "Boys Will Be Boys" by Jeff Pearlman, and it tells the inside story of the Dallas Cowboys championship teams of the early '90's. Kissing Suzy Kolber lists some of the highlights:

* Michael Irvin once wanted his haircut by the team barber. When Everett McIver wouldn't get out of the chair, Irvin did what any reasonable teammate would do, yelled “Seniority! Seniority! Seniority! Punk, get the fuck out of my chair!” and stabbed McIver in the neck with scissors.
* Irvin bankrolled a 'Boys charity basketball team called the Hoopsters as an excuse to get guys away from their wives and onto a private jet where they'd bang women of Irvin's choosing.
* Haley (who I once heard Fred Smerlas describe as the most despicable person and filthiest racist he's ever met) once bugged Scott Case in a meeting by saying “Scott, turn around, I gotta show you something… Scott, dammit, turn around! You need to see this!” and when Case turned around, Haley had slung his massive penis across his desk.
* Haley cut a hole in the roof of Tim Haris' BMW and peed in it.
* At another meeting, Haley came out of the bathroom, dropped his pants, wiped his ass and threw the crappy toilet paper at his LB coach.
* The Cowboys held position meetings in strip joints and they gave specific instructions to American Airlines that they only be assigned hot stewardi.

I would agree. I mean honestly I've been so busy the last couple of days I have no idea what the media is talking about. But if you haven't heard much about it or can find links easily then that should say that it's probably not getting that much attention.

Re: Boys Will Be Boys: The Glory Days and Party Nights of the Dallas Cowboys Dynasty

I just got done reading this book. It's great for anyone needing more reasons to hate anything with a star on its helmet. (As if anyone did...) Emmit Smith was as much of a douchebag as I always thought he was.
