Oh boy, am I glad I get to take a few shots at the Dallas Cowboys here. With the Cowboys all down and out after letting the Green Bay Packers come back and take the game in Week 15, Dez Bryant walked off the field and into the locker room with his tail between his legs.
I love me some Dez and all, but man, you just can’t do this type of stuff, especially on national television with the entire world ready to make a fool of you. Getting “emotional” isn’t a good excuse, and Bryant knows it. If he’s going to cry like a baby, then he should at least do it for the world to see since he can’t control his actions — at least give fans a viral gem that will live forever. Instead, he’d rather hide in shame behind a Twitter page.
I’m just not buying this, and this is more of an issue than the whole Robert Griffin III ordeal with the Washington Redskins. Why? Because this man openly turned his back on his team as he waltzed off the field during one of the toughest losses of the season. You think no one else wanted to cry after that? Yes, but they were man enough to stand there with their chins in the air.
Shame on you, Dez, and shame on the Cowboys for letting this all be swept on the rug within the organization. Someone should make some rules up or slap some fines on some faces. No player should be allowed to leave the field during the game under any circumstances. Maybe unless your house is on fire — other than that, no way!
