    Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has $800,000 worth of bling, and that is just the unpaid stuff.

    Talk about spending your money wisely.

    Is anybody better prepared financially for a long lockout or life post-football than this guy? And his financial silliness just adds a litigious layer to his already bumpy first 365 as a Cowboy, with sagging and dog cussing and general *******ery.

    Who possibly could have seen this whole Bryant-lockout imbroglio coming, right?


    Oh right, lots of NFL teams did. It is why he was available for Dallas at No. 24, because a lot of teams did their due diligence and were scared by his rep as an "always something" guy. A few totally took him off of their boards, as in Do. Not. Draft.

    This guy needs to grow up, bottom line... Spending money you simply do not have isn't EXACTLY wise nor is walking around looking like an inmate.

    I agree that her hits are now outnumbering her misses. Wonder what has happened?

    She is dead on about Dez. BP talked some about LT not too long ago after LT got arrested. It was short and too the point:
    "Some people will not learn."

    It is up to Dez to NOT be one of those people.

    Yeah, just like it's always something with you, you corpulent shakshuuko. I'd love to see you write a Bob Sturm article. You wouldn't be able to write a cogent paragraph. That's why they have you writing about what goes on outside the lines because you're too stupid either because you're a woman (doubtful: I've met women whose football IQ exceeds your girth) or because you're just a dimwitted yenta, which transcends gender. Bashokh aleek.

    Maybe. Maybe not. NO one can say for sure now.

    I think I was just shocked to read one of her articles related to the 'boys that did not take a shot at Wade. Hopefully she's cured of that.

    Almost a strange article...she attacked Dez with the "...should never have drafted that idiot." She has a right to her opinion.

    But then the entire article shifted with comparing him to those who have actually broken the law, and her advice channelled through Bill Parcells seemed genuine.

    My bottom line is this: It was always something with Michael Irvin for many years as well...always something, but his work on the practice field and on Sunday's overshadowed his "always something." Dez isn't there yet; he needs to take care of his playbook, practice, and game business first.

    Talent, without the attention to detail and the dedication on the practice field, will not overshadow his "always something."
