    Oh it most certainly is that as well. But the connection with Tomsula (and by extension McCarthy) is also undeniable.

    So let me get this straight he's been out of football for four years is a habitual criminal and is a domestic abuser so how again is he going to help the Cowboys win and not be a lockerroom cancer? This just in we had our fair share of cuckoo birds in the past i.e. Hardy, Underwood, and Spellman we don't need anymore!

    If this is what he was caught doing - just imagine what the guy got away with doing

    Im all for given people chances but his last arrest wasnt even a year ago. How can anyone say after that rap sheet he turned his life around? Maybe going 2 years of not getting in trouble we can say he turned things around.

    And lets be straight this isnt given anyone a 2nd chance. This is Dallas trying to see if they can strike gold.

    It's the first part that concerns me regarding his playing time. He's had 4 DUIs and is not even 1 year removed from his last one. And that's being caught doing it. I think he deserves the chance if the NFL wants to give it to him but I'd worry about him staying clean on the DUI front before anything else and just hope no one gets hurt if he doesn't stay clean.

    I don't know that he's been accused of causing problems in the locker room, but at the end of the day, the contract is small, it's only a 1 year deal, and I'm sure there are outs for the team if he causes problems.

    Needs support. A handler. Otherwise, this won’t work.

    The out is that the contract is not guaranteed. Doesn't sound like he got even a signing bonus.

    Sorry ...... but if I have to explain why I will not cheer for a guy who beats women and attacks people ...... There is no point in explaining it.

    SMH...you don't have to explain why you "don't support" those guys I'm asking you to explain these instances because I haven't heard anyone reference him as a woman beater. At least his wiki doesn't say that. Says he was accused of it a incident. It is what it is. Its clear the guy had issues with alcohol......

    I just always find it odd that people will root for a team in a sport where its been reported these guys are literally killing themselves for your pleasure. Destroying their bodies and their brain. We cheer for this. But when a issue comes up where a violent person is violent...its a shock or the moral high horse come into play.

    I would assume that the incident was about his drinking and trying to take his bottles of tequila away or his car keys.

    I will respectfully disagree and say that Scandinavia (I used to be a student in a city called Umeå in Sweden) is a poor comparison to most anything American.

    They are a basically homogeneous, 99.9% educated and relatively small societies with none of the divisive history, cultural barriers and sheer magnitude of population, economic burden or strategic importance that pushes mass societies like ours into some tight places.

    Do we have things to learn from them, sure—— is their method the secret for diminishing American inequality and strife? My opinion is no.

    I don’t claim to have “the answer” but any solution that lasts in this society would have to come from this society.

    Bad personnel decisions by the GM, like this one, have been far more detrimental to the team than bad coaching.

    I'd be surprised if he survives last cut if there is one.

    It was 0.4 initially, but hitting that police car knocked some of it out of him.

    I'd be surprised if he made it that far only to be cut then.
