Just eight days after being charged with intoxication manslaughter, an offense for which he could receive up to 20 years in prison, and which took the life of Cowboys linebacker Jerry Brown, Josh Brent was on the Cowboys sidelines for their match-up with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  At the time of the crash police say that Josh was twice over the legal limit for blood alcohol content. I understand the want for the Cowboys to stand behind their player, but having Brent on the sidelines seemed quite inappropriate and in poor taste. Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

  • My feelings on this person being on the sidelines is disrespectful and showing that he has no consideration for the family of Jerry Brown . It also shows the Cowboys owner and the NFL has no regard for human life. Yes, it was a mistake but a life was lost and more concern, consequences and accountability must be enforced on team players on and off the field. We all talk about the current conditions in the world and that things must change. If we cannot make changes in let's face it a simple arena of football and have consequences and accountability for a life that has been taken then how can we expect young people not to go on rampages in schools, malls etc. The air in the world seems like life is not very valuable by allowing Josh Brent on the sideline on top of that with benefits What The Hell. NFL / Cowboys shame on YOU!!!!
