Typical Cowboy..............

I know a lot of people that have a competitive nature, but they don't get into the drug business....TYPICAL "DRUGSTORE" Cowboy

Newton said he stood to make $75K per drug dealAssociated Press


DALLAS -- Former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Nate Newton says his competitive nature led him into the drug business.

"I've always been competitive, I've always been in sports," said Newton, a six-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman who retired after the 2000 season. "I couldn't see myself not being the biggest dope man."

Newton, 43, was released from a Louisiana prison last year on drug possession charges after serving about 2 years behind bars.

Newton, of East Ellijay, Ga., estimated he stood to make up to $75,000 per drug deal, another reason he said running drugs appealed to him.

In November 2001, he and two women were pulled over for a traffic violation on Interstate 10 in St. Martin Parish, La. Newton and the others were accused of hauling 213 pounds of marijuana in their van with plans to sell it.

While out on bond six weeks later, Newton was arrested again, this time in Ellis County. He was accused of hauling 175 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of a car.

Newton made his comments Thursday during a talk show on Dallas radio station KKDA. He said he became remorseful while serving time in a federal prison in Texarkana, before he was transferred to a federal facility in Louisiana.

"I got on my knees and said, 'God, I want to make a deal. ... You protect me in here, and when I come out, I'll do everything I can to make it right,'" he said.

Yes, It made me laugh too Riggo that's why I had to post it.........
I'm surprised Michael Irvin turned his life around, or he probably would've been Newton's best customer, and they could've shared the same cell.............

In fairness to Michael Irvin, he did cocaine, not pot.

PSU thanks for clearing that up. If anything Michael Irvin could use some pot. Maybe he wouldn't yell and spit so much if he was stoned. All that talking, yelling, and spitting are all from the coke.

He would probably implode. A black hole so dense that light cannot escape from it.

Yea you would have to post a sign. (Danger) Be sure to keep your fingers children and small pets away from the darkness.

Wanting to be the biggest dope man, I'm sure he'd expand his "inventory" and carry a variety of "products"

I just can't stand watching Irvin......how did he ever land the ESPN gig when there are so many qualified, intelligent ex-players that would have been so much better.... But that seems to be the new "style" of today's ESPN now known as BSPN by many sports fans.......just look at the hiring of Stepen A. Smith...another big mouth I can't stand............

Re: Typical Cowboy..............

The funniest Nate Newton story was during a Dallas game and John Madden used the telestrator to circle a snicker's wrapper that fell from Nate Newton's uniform, from a candy bar he had hidden in his uniform......
now we know why he had the munchies.........
