Either way it was dumb, I'm not arguing that. I just don't get the staunch "No way we should draft him now" views. It's just a little extreme in my opinion.
I don't agree with that, either. I think a significant number of people do "drink and drive", but I don't think it is a vast majority of people or even a slight majority of people.
In a normal season, I think you would be correct about the "No way we should draft him now" viewpoint being a bit extreme. Considering the season Dallas just had with two of its players getting in alcohol related car wrecks changes the dynamics and pushes them into the position of possibly having to avoid a player who just got a DUI.
