To be young and naive -Dez Bryant

Roy Williams and his teammates pull a fast one on him and make a payback for camp snub.

Dinner tab for Dallas Cowboys rookie Dez Bryant comes to $54,000 - ESPN Dallas

I think that is taking things too far. 54 grand and leaving someone to pay that is just wrong.

Re: To be young and naive -Dez Bryant

Yea,I agree...

I'm sure he has no trouble paying for it,but that is a pretty crappy thing to do in general.
If I were playing for a team that did that to me,it would leave a bitter taste in my mouth.
That's just not cool...

On the flipside,hopefully this becomes a problem and there's a trust and personal conflict that results in a locker room division that results in players fighting on the sidelines,on the field and putting personal blame on all of each other...lol

Re: To be young and naive -Dez Bryant

This is not an uncommon thing for teams to do to rookies. Young players are stuck with massive bills all the time

Looks like this article makes a lot more sense now.
Almost 80 Percent of NFL Players Nearly Bankrupt, 60 Percent of NBA Ballers? Why?

Re: To be young and naive -Dez Bryant

Hog1:

If you even THOUGHT about bringing heat into the Cowboys locker room - - can you spell Gilbert Arenas? -- you would be out of the league in 30 seconds flat. If you couldn't deal with your vet teammates putting you and your big contract "in place" during the season, you'd be out of the Cowboys' locker room with a reputation for being an "entitled p*ssy" in less time.

This is SOP in the NFL. This one may be a tad extreme, but that is the deal - - the same way that duct-taping rookies to a goal post in August is SOP.



Dirtbag359:

You are absolutely right; this is a large part of the reason why so many ex-NFLers - - and pros in other sports too - - are bankrupt soon after retiring. Generally, these are not sophisticated/educated folks and many of them cannot understand the harsh reality that the "money spigot" will eventually - - maybe even soon - - be cut off. It's great to be aboe to afford to pick up a tab left for you as a hazing stunt for $50K while you are making millions. But the day will come...

I can take two things of value and curiosity from your wisdom SC. It's obviously a good thing I am not a Cowboy so I don't have to cap Roy Williams (well who would really mind). I imagine that the title of "Entitled Pus..y" is a highly sought after award in that locker room??
AND BTW, I wasn't.....really serious. HTTR SC

Re: To be young and naive -Dez Bryant

Who was it that was dumped with a giant tab at a Pro Bowl? This type of stuff happens all the time.

Glad to know you weren't really serious. The NFL Security Folks might have put you on a watch list had you not made that clear...

"Entitled P*ssy" is not a label a player wants to wear when his agent goes looking for his next contract. Makes no difference which locker room hung that label on him...

Re: To be young and naive -Dez Bryant

Who says you HAVE to cap him in the locker room? You could just go to his house.
