    It's weird how some people think that because they did their job and fed and clothed someone that that person should bankrupt themselves trying to repay a debt that doesn't exist. Tyron doesn't owe those people anything but love and appreciation (and that only if they've earned it). Yeah great, he is successful and financially secure. Shouldn't every parent want that for their child? The article states that he gave them a large chunk of money when he signed his contract. Where did that go, drugs... gambling..?

    Here's a snippet from another article.

    Sounds like he might have a worse network than Dez.

    Terrible story.
    I hope the team does whatever it can to help insulate him from these vultures.

    That snippet is in the same article I posted. That was the original post they made, and then they went back updated the same link and changed the headline.

    Either way, people can see how trifling his family is... I really, really hate leeches.

    Don't know what's worse, how some people jump to conclusions and make a sad situation worse, or the fact that Tyron has to even go to these lengths over family and money

    How does this situation equate to the stuff that went on during the 90s?

    I work overseas and make great money, and I would like to think I'm doing something with my life.

    Why are you upset with him? I don't think he was addressing you specifically.

    I think all he was suggesting the leeches needed to get off their butts and go do something with their life.

    That's the way I took it too. He was talking "to" the family members, not posters on this forum.

    This perfectly sums up American society in 2012...it's culture, it's politics, its motivations, and its ills.

    Now this is where Jerry Jones needs to look out for his investment and help these younguns out. Evidently they have nobody else. Lord knows I wouldn't trust his lawyers, financial advisors, agents, etc. The organization must find someone with no vested interest.

    What a mixed up world we live in.:eek::

    Such a shame, I commend him for handling it the way he did. Tyron and Dez are probably both being hounded by family members for money and both are probably trying to hold their careers together while still trying to keep some semblence of family around.....

    Saddens me to hear this as I've seen many people in similar situations, where they simply cannot trust their family to love them for who they are and instead looking at what the person as what they can or can't do for them.

    He was never asked to be brought into this world. You take care of a child because you're supposed to love the child for who and what they are and it's a reasonable sense of obligation and 'the right thing to do.' You don't expect to be rewarded with future earnings. That's not love, that's an agenda.

    If Tyron's family thinks that way, then while it may be extremely difficult...he should look elsewhere for people that will treat him like family because of who he is, not what they can do for them. There are people out there like that.

    Money is the root of all evil and brings out the worst in people.
