    Lol does it matter what caused it? he beat his fiance, made a bomb threat in an airport, I'm ok with the signing but to suggest because it's alcohol and it could be more , it's not a big deal

    People say they care so they can look good but they don’t for the most part. If you watch tv you’d think that but ime offline which is relatively small people don’t care. They may mention it somewhat but it soon goes back to the actual games. Everybody’s circle is different so maybe your circle talks about it more but any circle I’ve been in for the most part off the field stuff isn’t really mentioned as some don’t sign person X.

    As far as the media people are always looking for someone to point their fingers and say look at them. That’s just life but hopefully he really has his life in order.

    Hope ALL our players are spending their isolation time watching tape, reading playbooks, and conditioning!

    Wow, I didn't realize he was this big of a jerk. The older I get the harder it is for me to root for guys like this.

    Conversely, we could have a team of convicted murderers on leave every Sunday and some fans wouldn't care. :muttley:

    Alcoholism mixed with poor decision making skills is a bad combo.

    There was a reason us hawks fans called him All-dumb back in the day.
    The guy is dumber than a bag of hammers.

    Good luck in getting and keeping him on the field.

    Here's a break down of the deal according to Jeff Cavanaugh. This is almost a zero risk deal.

    Base salary if he makes the team on opening day: $910k
    Weekly paycheck if on active roster: Roughly $40k (x 17 weeks: up to $650k)
    Incentives:
    8 sacks: 500k bonus
    10 sacks: +500K
    12 sack: +500k
    16 sacks: +500k

    Desperation signing....hopefully someone can step up at RE. This proves to me that we’re drafting secondary help in round 1.

    The SFPD had said Smith’s fiancee called 911 Saturday evening, claiming that he “threw her around the room,” bit her on the wrists and drank two bottles of tequila. She told police that he climbed out of a window and fled before officers arrived, and she was said to have suffered “non-life-threatening injuries.”

    I have no clue what happened here. For all we know, she threw stuff at him and he responded. We have no clue from this statement. We don't know why he bit her on the wrist. She could have had her hands on him or on his face and he bit them trying to get them off of him. I certainly don't know. Do you? Seriously, this guy is 6'4 260 lbs DE. He would've killed that lady if he'd punched her or something like that.

    Hey, I take TRUE domestic violence seriously, it's a very serious problem in this world. But not all cases are the same.
    I was in a relationship at 19 with a girl who was 21 and she was violent. Every time I told her that I was done with her, she would attack me, and I mean REALLY REALLY attack me. So I would have to scrape her off of me. Sometimes that would take a while to do. Her claws would be entrenched into my skin,

    There were times when I would go play basketball, and all of my friends would be like, "What the hell happened to you bro"? There would be scratches all over my body. The one time I actually snapped, that's the one time it was reported. She lunged at me and grabbed my neck one time, and I grabbed her hand and in one motion pulled them off of my neck and slammed them on the wall and broke it. Now who's at fault there? I certainly don't think I was. Some women can be very tricky, spiteful and evil, especially if they are violent. (NOT ALL WOMEN ARE LIKE THIS BY THE WAY)
    Sometimes women start the physical fights, especially young women. When you're young, you think you know life, and yourself but that's far from the truth. Since that woman, I've had nothing but peace in my life with every relationship I was in. I don't even scream at women, and especially don't get physical with them.

    The same goes for rape cases. When I was 22, there was a girl that told me she was 21, I later found out she was 16. She could've turned around and reported me just out of spite.

    I said all of that to say, not all cases are the same. And obviously the Cowboys felt comfortable enough to sign him, so I'm good with it.

    I completely agree with your point but I keep looking at Cavenaugh's face and just can't make my hand click on the link.

    He obviously has stupidity problems as well. However, once you stop drinking your entire life changes. You stop hanging out with morons, stop dating hoes that you want to smack around, and have a more clear view of what's important in your life. 4 years is a long time. Things can change in that time.

    Now I cant say how far along he is or if this is just a ruse to get more money. That part remains to be seen.

    Obviously the Cowboys are looking for cheap ways to hit a home run. Obviously trying to avoid spending another 15 million on a DE.
