How about, "stay in bounds" ??

Should have ditched this guy months ago.

If your "star" WR can't even be trusted not to act like a Senior on Spring Break in high school, you might have some organizational issues.

Easy to see why they haven't won anything in a decade or so.

He's 23 years old and wanted to stay out past curfew on his birthday, so he asked permission like he was supposed to. It sure seems like he's trying to get onto the right track to me. This is the biggest non-story since "Water still wet".

I think js34603's point is that they even need to give a 23 year old employee a curfew and that he has to ask permission in the first place.

Yeah but is his mom still a whore?

Its nice that the Cowboys organization has taken extra precautions to help an obviously troubled individual, but I can't help seeing this as nothing more than a business protecting a multimillion dollar investment from himself.

Color me cynical, but does anyone actually think Jerry Jones will give a rat's ass about Bryant after his usefulness as a player is at an end? We shall see.

I think they're to the point of saying, 'Fark it, we'll just see how good a draft pick we can get for him.'

I'm curious if the cowboys and by extension the nfl can do this, can they also step in and say hey hey hey X number of dollars from contract will be taken for a retirement fund managed by the nflpa and paid out to them the year after they leave the nfl?

yeah the 7th round linemen who are getting the nfl minimum will get 5 bucks a month for 15 years, but it will keep the rest of us from reading about vince young going broke 2 weeks after leaving the league.

Is there a better reason than that?

Take away the investment and who the hell cares that a 23 yr old is out partying and making questionable decisions in the first place?

Your own mother didn't care when you were doing the same thing.

The fact he had to ask permission is because he can't be trusted from past actions of being a dumb ass.

I do agree its not worth a news article though, if he strangled a stripper after curfew would be worthy of reporting, this, not so much.

So.... what? You think he shouldn't play football because ..... ????

I don't see why this is a bad thing. You think he's the only guy who could use a handler in this league?

At least they're doing something instead of ignoring the problem.

You don't get to be a billionaire by taking care of the people around you. You get a billion dollars by taking it all for yourself.

Yeah I thought it was pretty clear. But hey maybe it is too much to expect your employees not to assault their mothers.

Is this some kind of weird Poe's Law sports tab thing? You really think it is OK that one of your supposed star players has proven to be such a dumbass that he has to have a curfew? Really? You are totally fine with a 23 year old having Jerry Jones act as his surrogate father because he is too farking stupid to take care of himself? Good luck with that.

I'm sure the fact he makes such great life decisions as headbutting his mother and requiring a curfew isn't at all indicative of the fact he is a complete headcase and doesn't take his job seriously. That's why he is always making those precise route adjustments that miraculously lead to Romo interceptions somehow, completely unrelated to Bryant not knowing what the fark he's supposed to be doing. Probably because he was headbutting some other relatives or breaking curfew.

I'll never get why sports fans seem to think the cure for being a stupid 23 year old is simply a big paycheck. As if that fundamentally changes what a 23 year old actually is.

By this standard every 23 year old in the country needs a curfew and a 24x7 guard.

Instead of trying to change the inherent stupidity of 23 year olds, maybe pro sports leagues should question the wisdom of giving 23 year old so much money that the team feels obligated to protect it's investment.

Stop clutching your pearls on internet forums. You're embarrassing yourself.

Its pathetic that any grown man needs a handler at all or why hes not embarrassed by it in the slightest, if that were to happen at any other job the guy would be fired but because hes making other people millions you seem to be ok with this. Im a little shocked you couldnt see this as a bad thing.

I seem to think shes defending him because cowboy blindness disease, these people still think tony romo is an elite QB.

Who said I was fine with it? I would certainly prefer him to behave himself of his own free will, but what does getting pissed about it solve? And honestly, I didn't elect him to be our star player. It's not a democracy. But if our "star player" (which he's not really, I'd probably put that on Witten) needs a babysitter to keep him out of trouble, then yeah, I'll take the babysitter. What do you want me to do about it? Vote him out?

You seem awfully riled up about someone who plays for a team you obviously hate. I mean, you do realize his mom is not the most um.... reliable & wholesome person, right? And he never really had a dad in his life, so yeah, maybe Jerry putting some sort of chaperone on him isn't the worst thing ever. Josh Hamilton has a chaperone. Do you make a big to-do about that, too?

Not everyone grew up the way you think they should've. Not everyone had a kind & loving & non-felonious mother. Dez is big, strong, fast, & talented. He's also a dumbass. You won't find very many people who will tell you he's not. So I guess I don't understand your outrage here. Or maybe you're just trolling. Maybe that's the real Poe's Law action going on here.....

Um, excuse me? Nobody said any of that, including me. When I said, "I don't see this as a bad thing," I meant the chaperoning because HE CLEARLY NEEDS IT. I wasn't referring to him needing it. Of course it's stupid, but WTF, if that's what he needs, then why not?

Well he could also not lead the league in dropped passes as well, bryant has been a head case for years but jerry thinks he can fix everything by coddling players.

He SHOULDN'T need it, but that's now how it is. That's not reality. You can either bristle about how things SHOULD be or you can deal with the situation at hand. The Cowboys are protecting their investment & I don't see how that is a bad thing or how it affects anyone else.

And no one ever got back to me on why it's OK for Josh Hamilton.... who is 8 years older, by the way.... to have a handler & not Dez. Is it because he's white? Is it because he's married? Is it because he was down & out and now he's not? Is it because he talks about Jesus all the time? Seriously, why?

I bet I know. He doesn't play for the Cowboys, so there's not really anything to get huffy about. There's no righteous indignation about calling Josh Hamilton a big baby.
