Baby cub protecting papa bear.
He was a special player. Probably deserving of retiring that number.
what a cry bag
Cowboys do not retire numbers, but it was up to the equipment manager, Mike McCoy, I believe that's who it was. to give out numbers.
#8, #12, #22 won't be given out, and I think #74, was a very long time before it was given out. And then it was for TC purposes or a long time too.
Kind of partial to Dorsett, and it did bother me at times when I seen a player wearing it. But now, kind of think, well they give out #88, but to worth while candidates. So they should give out 33 to a potential great RB, not just to anyone.
Why, just because he makes a statement about his fathers number. I see nothing wrong with that.
thats cry bag all the way. A professional would say "I wish Jerry would retire numbers. My dad was special and I wish #33 would be retired"
I agree, if they were going to give out #33 it should have been to a special player at the least.
I don't think his father would be this upset about it.
When you have 90 guys at TC, you start running out of 2 digit numbers. I'm sure no disrespect meant on the Cowboys' part.
They give out #33 to defensive players, not offensive ones. The DBs and RBs have to use the 20s and 30s, not a lot of numbers. Some 40s but the LBs have to use those too in camp.

I don't get why they don't retire numbers. They certainly have guys deserving of that.
He should be concerned about more important things...like his fathers condition
I loved growing up watching TD
Something Tex Schramm started, Jerry doing the same, so far. Guess they feel the ring of honor is good enough of a tribute.
I think they should but ok.
Why not be concerned with both. Multi-task concern....
I met TD's, ex-wife, Anthony's mother in a Sears store at the Palm Beach Gardens Mall a long time ago, when Anthony was at Pitt as a DB. Yes, she had photos of them, and TD's Heisman Trophy in the background.
I somewhat agree, however it wouldn't be long until they ran out of numbers.
When Witten retires, will they issue #82 again? Same issue comes up.
If Smith makes the roster, he won't be wearing #33 in the regular season. He won't make the roster anyway, so moot point.
We've seen this before.
