Dez Bryant is in the middle of contract negotiations with the Cowboys and out of the blue comes Adam Schefter alluding to the possibility of Dez Bryant being involved in a domestic violence incident that rivals Ray Rice. Is this a ploy by someone to devalue him so that he does not get the new contract he deserves? I suspect there is something rotten in Dallas and it smells orchestrated to me. Dez Bryant is by far one the best receivers in the league so why the hate now? I am not a Cowboy fan but I do believe that Dez deserves every penny he is asking for. If the Cowboys don’t want Dez, 49ers go after him NOW and I volunteer to babysit him!!!
I will readily admit that Dez Bryant’s antics on the Dallas sideline make me crazy. My feelings aside, I believe his behavior is born out of his passion for the game and competitive spirit. Of course, his explosiveness could be related to some personal family dynamics that contribute to him not making the best decisions and/or dialing his emotions back effectively.
According to recent statements made by Adam Schefter he got wind of the video involving Dez and he has been on a mission to find it since September. Why? Why are sportswriters more interested in being like TMZ? Why isn’t Adam Schefter focused on the actual game of football instead of trying to be the first reporter to break a story that will destroy this young man’s life? If Dez was involved in an incident like Ray Rice, allow the Cowboy organization deal with it. The media needs to stop turning the lives of these young men into circuses and calling for public opinion to crucify them.
I am a firm believer that a lot of these people throwing stones are living in glass houses themselves. Here is what’s comical about Adam Schefter and his lack of investigative skills, once he started blabbing about an alleged video, TMZ found it and now it’s out there. As I have said before these reporters report based on innuendo and rumors, rarely is anything factually based.
Well, it’s not a video that rivals Ray Rice; it’s a video of Dez’s mother telling the Dallas police about an incident that escalated between her and Dez after she intervened in a fight between Dez and his brother. Clearly, this was a family matter and has no business being reported by anyone, not even TMZ. Also, it’s my understanding that the incident occurred a couple of years ago so why the hoopla now?
The person at the Dallas police department responsible for giving this video to TMZ, shame on you and I hope you can sleep at night. What happened to “Protect and Serve”?
Enough of this hatred!!!
