    This is a sickening story. A young man lost his life, another young man ruined his career and has to go through the rest of his life knowing he accidentally killed a good friend and lost a promising career, and a child will never get to know their father. I honestly don't care at all what happens in Sundays game.

    One stupid decision and many lives come crashing down.

    Just thought i'd add this based on some of the replies i've seen:

    For all of you saying you have no sympathy at all for Brent.. i assume that also means you have no sympathy for Jerry Brown either.

    Just as Brent made the decision to drive intoxicated.. Brown made the decision to get in a car with an intoxicated driver. Both were very dumb decisions. Either could have lost their life because of it.

    Sad, sad story. And, yes, I feel sorry for Josh Brent also. He had an addiction he couldn't overcome, and it cost him.

    Better to never start than to start and not be able to control that which will later control you. :(

    Good job by the moderators keeping this thread on track.

    What an awful thing to live with the rest of your life. I would have rather died then have to live with this guilt.

    Yep. Some need climb down off their moral mountain and let the tragedy be. It's bad enough on its own.

    That's something that keeps popping up in my head.

    This was his best friend from what I'm reading. Not only is your best friend dead and you're responsible, but your dream of a career is over, and you're going to be in prison for who knows how long.

    That's a whole hell of a lot to deal with for any person.

    More drinking goes on that average person realizes. My cousin built the homes for half the Eagle players. Jon Runyan (retired RT for eagles) and now a congressman would routinely drink a 5th of vodka the night before a game and wouldn't miss a beat. It comes down to just some people can handle it and some can't.

    All this plus the fact that he had a prior DUI and seemingly didn't learn his lesson. That's a very tough pill to swallow...

    It's just very sad for everyone involved.

    So many lives ruined for no reason at all.

    I think it was Bruce Carter that tweeted that the Cowboys organization will send a car to take any player home (and their car) if they call them no matter what the time.

    So sad for Jerry Brown, his family and his friends (which include Josh Brent).

    All true and just devestating stuff.

    Furthermore, I would worry that Brent should be on suicide watch.

    It's hard to find good out of a loss. I still struggle with that concept, but I think there may be some truth to it. It's awful what you've been through as well. Keep your chin up. I am.

    I doubt he or the Cowboys will post that much to get him out.

    I'm not an expert but I don't think you have to come up with that much money. I think you need a percentage of it in cash and the rest in secured property like a house or car or something that they hold in lieu.

    I think you're right, 10% maybe but I bet he won't post until tomorrow when he can see a judge to be arraigned.

    Didn't the Rb a few years ago die while on the team? Can't remember his name right now.
