IT'S TIME TO SAY ENOUGH!

Posted July 19, 2012

SOMETIMES you just need to say "ENOUGH". In this installment of the Cowboys 'Scandal of the Week' series, Emmitt Smith (in an attempt to "not pile on" to Dez Bryant's problems), issued what has to be the dumbest statement of 2012 since Jerry Sandusky admitted to showering with kids.

This is a direct quote:

“This is where people have to be patient with people like Dez or younger players. Everybody has to mature. Sometimes, some folks mature a lot quicker than others. I mean, that’s just something everybody has to be patient for. Just pray that the guy understands and gets it at some point. Because if he doesn’t, he’s definitely messing with his future and he’s messing with his ability to really connect with the fans.”

If Dez Bryant hasn't learned enough self-control not to hit his mother (IN HER OWN HOME) by now, he is NEVER going to learn it. This is, by the way, not just about him hitting his mother; it's about a pattern of behavior that as far as football fans know, extends back AT LEAST into college. This adult male (I cannot bring myself to call him a man) has had more than enough time to learn to obey the law and basic rules of decorum the rest of us abide by everyday.

At some point the word ENOUGH has to be said to him and a price extracted. At some point the excuses have to stop, and the compassion needs to be applied to more worthy people. Some of whom are desperate and hungry for even half the opportunity and goodwill this idiot continues to squander.

Sometimes you just need to say "Enough".
