I have tons of Dallas Cowboys books!
One of the things that the players used to try and do, was what is called the "brother-in-law" thing. That is where, either during practice or a game, the opposing player would try and "brother-in-law" the guy across from him, saying things like, "Hey, it's just practice, so don't go hard on me, OK"? Or, during a game, some players would tell the guy across from them that "the play is not coming our way, so lets take it easy on each other."
Well, Thomas Henderson and Randy White would say, "OK...lets go easy...", and on the snap of the ball, they would kick then take names!
They would never do the "brother-in-law" gig!
Randy White, when I saw him in person...lived up to his name! He was a freaking Manster! But, the nicest guy you could ever meet...off the football field!
That first year, Henderson was pissed at White because Randy got drafted first, and HollyWood thought he was better then Randy...all during training camp, Henderson would call Randy a "white boy", saying the he was better then Randy...and did Randy want to fight? All this time, Randy would just ignore it...but, one day, in the locker room, HollyWood said something to Randy about being a "white boy", that he was a punk and stuff...the next thing HollyWood said he knew...Randy came at him, picked him up, and body slammed him to the floor and pinned him down, and told HollyWood something about, "I could knock the ---- out of you right now if I wanted too"!
From that day on...they were the best of teammates!
And...they would never do the "brother-in-law" gig...! Those were some fantastic stories about the "Dirty Dozen"!
