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

Boys Will Be Boys: The Glory Days and Party Nights of the Dallas Cowboys Dynasty, a new book by Jeff Pearlman

From Publishers Weekly
In his latest effort, Pearlman (The Bad Guys Won!) tells the story of how the Dallas Cowboys went from being a league doormat to a Super Bowl–winning machine. It's the cast of characters that makes this story a page-turner, starting with controlling owner Jerry Jones; all-business coach Jimmy Johnson, who would cut a player without blinking; and star players Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith and Deion Sanders. Pearlman explores the many other people who bought into the philosophy that if you were going to be a Dallas Cowboy... you needed to live the life—and that meant, in the early '90s, plenty of infidelity, cocaine, nightly trips to gentleman's clubs and hangovers at practice. Pearlman interviewed nearly 150 members of the Cowboys organization for the book, but much of the terrific detail comes from such tangential folks as journalists, players' wives and staff at the local Cowboys restaurant. The anecdotes range from uplifting (the heartwarming story of quarterback Troy Aikman granting a wish to a dying boy) to raunchy (defensive end Chris Haley, while playing for the 49ers, often masturbated in the locker room). In the end, Pearlman has produced a narrative that is as entertaining as it is insightful. (Sept.)

Has anyone checked this out yet? I caught an interview on the radio w/ the author and it sounds like a pretty good read for redskin fans. A couple of points he made:

Nobody liked Emmitt Smith as he was a complete ass. He wouldn't sign an autograph for a teammates own mother, by saying if I sign this for your f****** mom I'll have to sign one for everyone's f****** mom.

Michael Irvin slit a players throat w/ a pair of barber's scissors in a locker room fight over "seniority." This was covered up by the team during Irvin's probationary period.

Oh yeah, lot's of drugs and women.

I might have to check this one out. It doesn't seem to paint such a great picture about those loveable cowboys. Too funny.

I think the answer to that is pretty obvious. And disgusting... (not that there's anything wrong with that.)

I'm surprised the cowgirls could even have a huddle. From what I understand, convicted felons are'nt suppose to associate with other convicted felons.

Yeah this book sounds great. I am dying to pick it up. Sounds like Charles Haley really steals the show.

Starring Michael Irvin as Edward Scissorhands. I can't believe he didn't do time for the stabbing.

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

I wouldn't be too rough. There were Redskins that couldn't even read. Every team has dark moments in their closet. That's just how it is. The Cowboys have certainly had their fair share. But I bet people around here would be crying and whining if there were something showing this same type of material about the Redskins. All in all I find the concept pretty interesting. I always wonder what happens behind closed doors with NFL teams.

Slitting someone's throat and whipping out and wacking your wang in a locker room aren't in the same ballpark as illiteracy, but I get your point.

Everyone should read this. If you didn't hate the Cowboys or Michael Irvin before, you will after reading that article.

You got nothing on the Redskins. We're boring. Our last great National Enquirer moment came courtesy of Joe Theismann ditching his family to get hot with Cathy Lee.

I don't think it's that simple Daseal. The culture that Gibbs instilled - in the 80's and to perhaps a larger extent in his second term - was one of responsibility and character. To be sure, people slipped, but there was a conscientious effort from the top down to build a team of solid citizens. The Cowboys, on the other hand, have only ever cared about winning, character be damned. From there drug-addled teams in the 70's, to the aformentioned Johnson era teams, to today where that criminal madman Pacman runs around their stadium.

Me? I'd rather win a superbowl with crooks than suck with choir boys, but I certainly respect what Gibbs did. I definitely think there's a world of difference between the culture of the Skins and the culture down in Dallas.
