  1. What about this idea to combat tanking in the NBA. I drew inspiration from soccer and relegation. Obviously you cant send the Kings to NCAA but what if you punished teams for finishing in the bottom 4? If you finish in the bottom 4 the following year you are not eligible for playoffs. It could be cumulative up to 3 year ban to stop the any future "process" attempts. You would still have draft lottery and maybe put less weight in draft position making it even less of an incentive to finish with worse record.
  2. https://www.preceden.com/timelines/318166-ezekiel-elliott-accusation-timeline---dcbluestar- I dont know how the NFL came to a decision based on this timeline of events. Seems obvious he is victim here
  3. Zekes ex sounds lovely. Among the quoted threats: ▪ After being told Elliott didn’t want her at his house on July 21 and he didn’t want her coming out with him, Thompson responded with: “Ok this is what you want? Ok then, I’m going to ruin your life. You will see. If I was you, I wouldn’t go out tonight.” ▪ After being told she couldn’t come Elliott’s 21st birthday party, Thompson told him “that’s worst decision you made in your life. I’m going to ruin you life now.” ▪ The report also details a text message in which Thompson told Elliott: “You better be smart. And not be a dumb man. B----, keep (messing) with the wrong, b----.” ▪ After not being allowed into the after party, Thompson was heard yelling and screaming that “your career is over” and then proceeded to call the police. ▪ Elliott is also “100 percent certain” that Thompson told him on July 22, “You are a black male athlete. I’m a white girl. They are not going to believe you.” Per the documents, Friel was unable to give an clear endorsement of Thompson’s credibility because she repeatedly misled investigators. The above threats were made on July 21 and the early morning of July 22, the date Thompson called police accusing Elliott of assaulting her while they were in a parked vehicle.
  4. If you have other sources that dispute the Reddit claim by all means show your work. This story is on the USA Today website so its been vetted/checked. You said 50% of the Cowboys team are terrible citizens (would love to see how you came to this conclusion), I replied with an article showing the Eagles have had more arrests than the Cowboys. I dont know what more you want me to say. I think Hardy signing was a huge mistake but Jerry loves to gamble and ultimately thought a super bowl was within reach. If a guy is found guilty in the courts by all means kick him off the team or have some sort of plan/punishment in place. I have shown you examples of cowboys players who have been kicked off the team after convictions.
  5. My question to Eagles fans is how much is enough for you? this has been a trend for a long time, and I know in the shark pool there was discontent about Michael VIck. you guys ok with 50% of your team being a bunch of terrible citizens or is there a point where it becomes too much. Obviously for the general public there isn't and there won't be, but wondering about some of the Eagles fans in here if the obvious dismissal of the front office to all of this cool and fine, or will it be something you can no longer tolerate?
  6. http://cowboyswire.usatoday.com/2017/05/08/dallas-cowboys-arrest-totals-five-years-philadelphia-eagles-washington-new-york-giants-dui-drugs-domestic-violence/ Looks like were done here. ETA: tldr Eagles lead the NFC East in arrests in the past 5 years.
  7. I missed the Damien Wilson arrest. If he is convicted of brandishing weapon and and intimidating a woman I am sure he will be disciplined appropriately both by the league and cowboys. The Zeke bar fight was sensationalism reporting,after the facts came out multiple bystanders confirmed he was not the assaulter. Did you want my opinion on Dak fake autograph thing to? Honestly this thread was a troll attempt at cowboys hence Torrin Tucker article. He played for 2 years early in his career (2003-2005) and then for Bucs, Raiders, and Arena football league and somehow this falls on Cowboys team?
  8. Jourdan Lewis was found not guilty, same with Zeke. Hardy was given second chance and Joseph Randle was cut despite talent he showed on field when he was found guilty. Am I missing any other cases?
  9. To each his own. Are you in any way swayed that his girlfriend was involved in a bar fight the night before and the bruises could be from that? Are you just going to disregard her statements that he is black man and she is white woman and no one will believe a word he says or texts to her friends asking them to change their stories?
  10. Could ask you the same question. http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/11217514/wendell-smallwood-west-virginia-mountaineers-arrested-witness-tampering-charge What were your thoughts on Eagles signing Micheal Vick after all his history? Every team has its screw ups. Dallas figured they were one player away when they signed Hardy they took a risk and it failed miserably. It seems all the Cowboys smoke weed which in the next 5-10 years will likely be legal and is much safer vs narcotic medications for pain control. The NFL's archaic policy has robbed us of seeing the full potential of Josh Gordon, Martavis Brytant, etc. I hate reading stories about suspensions for weed, even for rival teams. The courts cleared Elliot after it was determined that his girlfriend was unreliable and her story kept changing. Zeke does dumb stuff like speeding tickets and lifting girls shirt but cant say I would not be doing the same stuff if I was given millions of dollars and famous in my 20s. I defer judgement to courts or video evidence before I characterize a player as guilty.
  11. How do you explain why absolutely no one else in the NBA has a problem kicking people?
  12. For sure man. By no means am I saying that Romo should be rushed back. He should be fully healed and eased back into the line up. With that being said I think if the season was on the line I have a feeling he would be out there and the team is just dragging their feet at this point.
  13. If the Cowboys dreams are the Superbowl I dont understand why you dont start the guy with the higher ceiling (Romo) vs the guy with the higher floor (Dak). Better yet who would you rather have under center in February vs Belichek and Patriots; Romo or Dak? Seems like obvious answer to me would be Romo. Belichek routinely eats rookie QBs for lunch regardless of how well they played before.
