This was his second DUI. He totaled a car and spent time in jail in college.
Hard to believe this sentence considering he did have a rap sheet....whoever his lawyer was did a hell of a job
he was twice the limit. The bartender said he had 17 drinks.
I just want to know if he'll be ready for training camp. 1 tech DT suddenly could have some depth. Great news.
I still want the position addressed early in the draft regardless, but it gives some freedom to explore other options in the early rounds. That's with the assumption he could get into shape and play. Given the situation I would think he'll be ready to go.
Is football that important to you though
I've got no problem with the sentence handed down, and I see no reason why the Cowboys should not keep him on the roster. We could use him and he appears to be available. Great news.
He is no longer a Dallas Cowboy. He's a free agent.
He is retired.
You have to imagine the NFL is going to put the smack down on him if he ever dreams about trying his luck on a 3rd chance at not being a drunken buffoon.
don't mess with the feds!!!
They hold his rights.
Then should the Bar also not be culpable?
This is the problem, as I see it. We are trying to legislate something that many, in this country, don't want legislated. The drivers are seeing punishment but there is so much more to this then just a person getting behind the wheel. People are making alcohol. People are making it very easy to buy alcohol. A lot of money is being made on this. However, I'm not so sure that the focus on dealing with this problem is on the preventative side. It's almost all on the detection side. Why is that? Once you catch somebody driving drunk, it's pretty much too late. The way to solve the problem is to find ways to prevent it yet, nobody is all that interested in this. Why is that?
Hurd intentionally broke the law. The same with Michael Vick. As bad as the Brent situation is, he's guilty of using extremely bad judgement. It was an accident at the end of the day. He didn't intentionally kill his best friend.
No. Norm said he is still on their reserved/retired list.
crazy aint it
He did intentionally drink and drive though right?
Oh right, I guess ole Josh just accidently had 17 drinks and the car just sped to 130 MPH on its own.
Same as I did a couple times in college. Thankfully I didn't cause an accident and hurt anyone or myself. At 37, I haven't used that type of bad judgement after a night of a few drinks.
So to respond to your original statement, he did then intentionally break the law.
Was there intent to kill Browne? That is a consequence of making the decision to drink and drive. That is the result of what could happen to any one of us that makes that decision.
I agree, but the reason for that is that prevention is not a money maker like detection. Like it or not, a lot of money is made from arresting drunk drivers.
