And the truth will set you free. Or cause more problems.
Dallas Cowboys’ owner, Jerry Jones, shocked everyone when he revealed he was yet to be in touch with Dez Bryant following a family assault incident two weeks ago. When Jones was asked about the reasoning behind not speaking with Bryant at the team’s press conference to commence training camp, Jones claimed he “didn’t know why.” Lies.
Jones, while appearing on CBS Radio this morning, brought a new perspective to why he stayed away from Bryant.
“I’m so pissed that I’m not ready to talk to him,” Jones declared.
That is the last thing Bryant needs to hear now. Fear is not a constructive long-term motivator. Fear is a temporary destructive motivator. Jones owns the right to be “pissed.” However, Jones’ time to speak with or about Bryant was immediately after the incident. As soon as training camp opened, it was time to move on.
Just when it looked like Jones knew when to keep his mouth shut, he takes a shot
