Bottom line he deserves what comes his away as far as jail time or whatever, but his emotional state is probably fragile. NFL needs to support him as far as counseling goes and keep a close eye on him because he could become suicidal.
Did you confuse the news about him being released from jail?

What i meant is that i was probably legally intoxicated even though i was able to drive. If something had happened the law doesnt care though
Edit: i believe if i have two drinks in an hour i am legally intoxicated -

I've regrettably made that decision before in the past. It was very common in my high school to drive home after parties. It was very very stupid and dangerous and I regret every moment of it.

When youre younger or live in the world of the elite (sports, entertainment, etc.) you tend to think you're invincible. I'm not giving excuses but just why I think some people drive drunk.

Don't sweat it; in the past now. Lucky nothing happen. I think a good majority of people have driven over the legal limit. I know I have in the past especially in my 20's not proud of it was a huge mistake. Lucky I never killed anyone. I am also not not going to lie and belittle others who admit to it.

Now in my 30's I see the light and rarely do I ever even have a beer unless I am at home and done driving for the day. Risk reward is not worth it by any means.

Re: Cowboys DT charged with Intoxicated Manslaughter

Everyone makes mistakes when they are young. the critical thing is to learn from them and not repeat them. Just because you "get away" with buzzed/drunk driving 99 times, doesnt make it less likely that you could get pulled over - or worse - kill someone or yourself, on the 100th. I have had friends and family members killed by drunk drivers. its simply not worth the risk.

Re: Cowboys DT charged with Intoxicated Manslaughter

Killing someone is a little bigger than "just a mistake".

Driving drunk is not a "mistake", it's a damn stupid decision that you could pay for...but others shouldn't have to.

I have zero tolerance for drunk drivers. My wife and kids got t-boned by a drunk last year who went through a stop sign without even slowing down...thank God they were unharmed (car was totaled), but it should never have happened in the first place.

Even before that day, I had the same view on it. This just put it on concrete.

Re: Cowboys DT charged with Intoxicated Manslaughter

By wow, i hope youre referring to Stacee McWilliams using this tragic incident to get her 15 minutes of fame. And PFT for perpetuating it by using such a licentious and inflamitory article name and not providing commentary...

Brent was intoxicated and just in an accident. the car FLIPPED AND ROLLED OVER. McWilliams stated that every time she spoke to him and told him to get his friend out of the car, his reply was "he won't get out of the car."

Its blatantly obvious Brent was in shock. The idea that McWilliams and PFT are perpetuating the idea that he just didnt care about his friend is absurd.

McWilliams says she's coming forward because she doesn't want anyone to think Brents a hero - who the frack has said he's a hero?!?! No one. This woman is trying to capitalize on a tragedy for media attention and it disgusts me to my core.

Re: Cowboys DT charged with Intoxicated Manslaughter

Plus he was drunk...not in the right mind seems like a fair conclusion. The thought process of some people baffles me. Why this woman thinks this is something that the public needs to know is beyond me. What's the point?

Agreed 100%.

He's a worthless human being. He chose to get drunk. This murder was a conscious decision, not a mistake or the fault of the alcohol. Unless he has some major learning disability, he knew getting drunk and driving is a dangerous DECISION. He's no victim, he did this to himself and to the man he killed, who pretty much provided the nails to his own coffin by riding with a drunk. They're not heroes or victims, they're people who chose to partake in knowingly dangerous, illegal and just plain stupid actions at their own free will.

The families may need support systems, but this murderer needs prison time so he cant be on the streets to kill someone else.

I hate that excuse. He was in the right mind when he bought the drinks. Whatever happens after that is his own fault.

I was responding about how he acted after the accident.

Re: Cowboys DT charged with Intoxicated Manslaughter

Regarding all these comments about Brent needing a support system and the team helping him... do any of you have jobs where, if you are drunk driving and kill someone, your employer will keep paying you and provide you with resources to help you?

It got me thinking about the NFLs system where players can a number and have a cab pick them up, free of charge, no questions asked. While i'd certainly rather players do that than drive junk, why the F--- is the NFL paying for this service? These players make enough money to call their own damn taxis.

Players dont deserve special privileges or considerations that aren't available to anyone else. a Actor/Athlete gets involved in something like this, and people act like they deserve some special sympathy... when joe schmoe does the same thing and he's a dirtbag.

I'm for those that say the NFL should throw this guy to the wolves. I believe everyone has good in them and hope Brent can serve his time, make changes in his life, and take actions to right the wrongs he committed. But its not the Cowboys/NFL/NFLPAs place to help him or provide him support. His friends and family can do that.
