You complete misrepresent what happened when you take stupid stances like that one. There's also no proof that he was the one that stabbed the person.. so calling him a murderer is also incorrect.
You also fail to mention all the needy families and disadvantaged youth he's helped over the years with his charity work.
[View Full Quote]Not suprised from some of you, to be honest.. but for such a horrible guy and a murderer, its funny how a nice guy like Peyton Manning didn't have any problem waiting for him alone in the locker room with his family to share a kodak moment after the game. He's not the person some of you want to make him out to be.. and its kind of silly the way some talk of him.
Again, i hope he gets his chamionship, and i hope to high Heaven that someday we get a player or two like him on this team.
^^^This. My gosh what I would do to have a player like this in our lockeroom. I was dumbfounded when a broke down Keith Brooking...on his last NFL legs...came into our lockeroom and became the leader. It confirmed what I ALREADY knew about the Wares, Witten, Romos and Rattlifs. When you look at what our payroll is....and compare that to the results...it is no wonder Jerry is pissed. And trust me...I am not excusing Jerry for creating this mess...because somehow he thinks because he spends a lot, he should get better results. But he better start paying attention to WHO he is spending it on. We have some excellent players who pile up statistics. And they have been kept together for a long time. But this group has not won anything. Forget Super Bowl...this group has won ONE...ONE playoff game. Yet year in and year out we hear how talented this group is.
The culture in Dallas is terrible. A long hard realistic look must take place. Jason Hatcher said we CURRENTLY have the talent to win a Super Bowl....this after a season when we were the ONLY team in the NFL to not score more than 10 points in the 1st half of a game. This is one of many examples of the denial that has gone on for a LONG time in Dallas. This team has ZERO idenity. How we win and lose changes all the time. The Ravens, Steelers, Giants, Pats etc...those team have idenity. And you can see the idenity of the Seahawks and 49ers taking shape. These are the teams in the hunt year in a nd year out.
Fans have become so numb to this mediocrity that they now turn on fans who are wondering out loud "what the heck is going on". I can no longer look at Dallas as a situation where the glass is half full. We are 1 of 3 teams to not play in a NFC championship game in the last 17 years. THAT IS WHO WE ARE PEOPLE. You have been distracted with all the Sunday and Monday night appearances. All the games we play on Thanksgiving. You have been distracted by the worlds greatest stadium. The worldes largetst scoreboard. The worlds most valuable sports franchise. Those things are true. And that is ALL that is true about the Cowboys. Because they actual product on the field is medicore at BEST!!!!
So us resorting to dumping on a player like Ray Lewis (notice I did not say person, because I don't know him)...and what this ONE person has done to define an ENTIRE organization...to uplift and ENTIRE city....to stoke an ENTIRE fanbase...us dumping on him makes us look petty, jealous and envious. Which is exactly what Welker's wife looked like when she made the comments. Lastly, why would ANY Dallas fan defend a classless organization like the Pats?!
