One Thing's For Sure: Dez Bryant Intent on Keeping It Real

Categories: Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant Pointing.jpg
Whether it's Roy Williams' pads or his friends' sagging pants, Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant makes some mind-boggling interesting decisions.

And whether it was his underwear exposed or whether he was banned from NorthPark mall over the weekend or whether he launched obscenities at the police and parked in a fire lane during a disturbance, Dez seems intent on keeping it real.

After the story broke yesterday afternoon about him being issued a criminal trespass violation and having a history of commotion at the mall, Dez tweeted last night at 8:54:

   Headed to North Park tomorrow to get these Lebrons....I am not banned from North park lol

Kids Tweet the damnedest things. Of course earlier in the day he also Tweeted "how has everyone day been?" so with Bryant, we've got to understand what we're working with.

I like Dez as a person and love him as a player. But he's young. Immature. And, yep, prone to finding himself at the wrong place at the wrong time and often using the phrase "it was a misunderstanding." On a scale of 1-10 the incident is like a 2. He wasn't arrested. Didn't commit a crime. Just was basically being a punk at a mall and apparently looking for - and finding - trouble at a place that's not exactly welcomed him (or vice versa) in the past.

The police report filed about the incident says that Bryant and three friends were kicked out of NorthPark. When confronted by off-duty police to pull up his pants, Bryant repsonded with profanity and, when told to leave the premises, parked his car in a fire lane.

"What the fuck, you stopped me like I stole something," Bryant was quoted as saying, according to the police report.

But Bryant said last night that his pants weren't sagging and that - a-ha! - it was a misunderstanding.

"It really wasn't me in the wrong," Bryant said. "It's not even an issue."

Channel 8 says Bryant has a history of problems with the mall including separate incidents where he cut in line at the Apple store, received a ticket for parking in a fire lane and was involved in another disturbance involving a woman at P.F. Chang's restaurant. The TV station says that Bryant has been banned for three months, though his advisor, David Wells, refutes that claim.

One thing's for sure, this isn't the last off-field trouble we'll read about involving Dez Bryant. Let's just hope it doesn't get any more serious than an out-route at a mall.

And for those of you who are going to somehow blame the media for this, remind me again how an immature Cowboy with a checkered past showing up on a police report isn't news?

Uppity and most gracious are two characteristics most commonly associated with the Anglo American. Perhaps my point can be best illustrated from an historical perspective. During the peculiar institution of slavery, the house slave usually lived better than field slaves. They usually had better food and were sometimes given the family's cast-off clothing from the master. When the master was sick, the house slave would chime "we's sick master". In some cases the slaves were treated like the slave-owners children. Deion Sanders epitomizes the mentality of the House Slave. Deion used the media to attack another Cowboys Player in which he could have easily handled behind closed doors. In addition, Deion, has the leverage to communicate with the C.E.O. of Under Armour that he would address this issue with Dez in private rather than playing it out in the media. Deion who characterizes himself as being a staunch supporter for kids, and professes a love for seeing others excel showed he is in the Masters house,and when he is offended will change his thinking to that of the historical characterization of the House slave.

Now, Deion says, "I do so much for these kids". This message sets the tone of a double standard. Deion says, "he's teaching kids how to perfect their talents, be a positive role model, and put God first in all things". Yet, when Deion is angry at another brothers short comings, he fronts the brother out in the media in a manner that contradicts what he is imparting to the children and his fan base, a behavior the House Slave would carry out on the field slave during the peculiar institution of slavery. Subsequently, Deion has not attempted to justify his actions fully with Dez Bryant during the NCAA investigation, Deion stated, "Dez called him stating he wanted to sue the NCAA for suspending him during the 2009 season". What Deion did not state was his initial involvement was a violation of NCAA rules and he having been through the NCAA process as a former athlete knew the ramifications of his actions were a NCAA violation. But it was the dollar bill he had his eyes set on. As a loyal die hard Dallas Cowboy fan, I have never seen a true Cowboy stoop this low.In addition, a man who profess God, slander another brother as if he is pacifying the master. In Deion's statements throughout the conversation on ESPN with Ben and Skin, I repeatedly heard him trying to clean up a screw up he made the previous week in addition, justify why he did what he fronted out Dez, and why he needs to "step back" from Dez. In addition Deion continued to use his involvement with the Kids as a means of seeking sympathy with his fan base for his intentional sabotage and assassination of Dez Bryant. I ask Deion Sanders this question, how many more lashes must Dez Bryant endure?

Since Deion's infamous tongue bashing of Dez Bryant he has come on KRNB a Black Radio station attempting to justify his actions once again using his volunteer service with the kids and never stating he's open to an apology to Dez Bryant. In fact, Deion kept alluding that he appears to be waiting for Dez Bryant to crawl to him first. Nonetheless, this attempt by Deion Sanders has been to garner support for his tirade which once again could have and should have been conducted behind close doors and not on the Ben and Skin show. Nevertheless, we cannot overshadow what Deion does for up and coming talent in the African American Communities but its with a motive behind it. Deion watches these kids at a young age builds a relationship with them in order to take them to the bank once they hit the professional level. This was his primary purpose with Dez Bryant, but when the Under Armour deal did not go the way Deion wanted he attacked Dez in the media knowing this would crush a young twenty-two year old kid fresh into the limelight of Americas team. Appears that a hint of jealousy was in play on Deion part here. Many times we as sports fans grow to admire a particular player because of their immense talents not wanting to hold them accountable when they screw up. Deion is more mature than Dez Bryant, he has been through the process of dealing with adversity, Dez is learning, and in his learning his accountability will be weighed as time moves forward. Deion, I feel knows he screwed up, and coming on to ESPN Radio and KRNB to speak publicly was in fact a designed ploy to try and keep his name good standing within the African American Community. I'm just telling like it is!

Why is it a problem for the owners of a nice mall, or any business for that matter, to expect that its patrons not show their asses, either figuratively or literally? And a 22 years old man, who is old enough to vote, take a legal drink and make independent business decisions, is old enough to know better than to make a profane public spectacle of himself over something so trivial.

Jerry is still haunted by Randy Moss. Passed up on him because of "character issues" and he tore up the NFL and the Cowboys in particular. He gets a second chance at Moss through Dez and takes the gamble. If his issues are just minor peccadilloes like this he comes out a winner. If he's a Pacman Jones, well he might get some mileage out of him before he implodes. The overlooked aspect of this is, who exactly are his running buddies? Fellow millionaire athletes or sycophantic hangers on? That's where the trouble begins.

For all you racists...I hope Dez inseminates all of your wives and girlfriends. Just think of it, elements of his DNA coursing through their bloodstream. Your women start giving you the cold shoulder. You catch them in another room whispering on the phone and when you ask who it was they respond...just a friend. You come home early from work and hear the back door slam. She comes out of the bedroom....nose running...eyes bloodshot. She claims she has a cold. You find curly black pubic hairs in the shower drain. You question her and she explodes and storms out. The sex stops. When she has no choice but to give in, your find her vagina loose and damaged. While you are pumping, she is surfing the net on her Ipad. Dez continues to turns her out. His semen volume triples with every new sunrise. Because of his constant DNA fertlization of your woman, she starts to take on his facial characteristics. Within one week, you wake up one night, look over and there is an exact duplicate Dez Bryant. You try to run, but he grabs you, turns you over and starts pounding you up the rectum. As you are in the shower in the fetal position, your wife-Dez mutant is in your BMW headed to Northpark with your credit card. All you whities deserve this scenorio to play out...TONIGHT!!!!!

A) Isn't 22 a little old to be hanging out at the mall with your buddies and sagging your pants? Do you suppose they shot their Orange Julius straw wrappers at each other and unscrewed all of the pepper shakers?

B) The man really must be dumber than a peanut.

C) Very disappointed in Drew Pearson coming on GAC this afternoon and implying that the cops and the mall are out to get Dez. As was mentioned later, Dez is lucky he didn't end up in jail. I guarantee you if I cussed out a cop and then parked illegally, I'd end up in some kind of legal trouble. They cut him a break.

On the felon quotient scale, I'm a lot more impressed with Bryan McCann being drunk and disorderly than I am Dez Bryant not owning a belt...

I don't give a shit about Dez or the the cowboys for that matter. I do applaud NorthPark. It is the only mall in the COUNTRY where I don't mind spending time. There's the fewest trashy and/ or ghetto people there than any mall I've seen...even supposed upscale ones like the Galleria. After only going to NorthPark for years, I had to go to Town East in Mesquite to purchase something I couldn't find anywhere else. Man...what a shock!! Long Live NorthPark!! (And it ain't a race thang..I'm black)

for those who think the Tardline will somehow attempt to turn this story into something racist....THEY WON'T.

they tried that unsuccessfully during the middle of every month since starting in pm drive.ratings proved it didnt work so they scrapped the transparently blatant "controversial" & "racist" attempts to gain ratings.

the dez topic will be all about how immature he is as it should be.

I saw this story on Fox 4 this morning and I just knew that good ole RW would have this on his blog first thing.

I really don't give a shit what Dez Bryant does off the field, but this kind of thing doesn't suprise me. This sort of thing is why he fell so far in the draft and the Cowboys ended up getting to draft him in the first place. Other teams think about character before they draft someone...but nope not Jerry. But I can't really bash Jerry too much though, I do love Dez as a player just as much as the next guy, but he is just such a fucking moron. I mean the Cowboys had to dumb down the offense last year just to get him involved. I feel for the kid though. He was born into a bad situation and he grew up in Lufkin, so he was never going to be real educated and then he went to OK State which is barely a University. But as long as he scores touchdowns though, the Cowboys and to steal from Galloway, the Cow Sheep will love him, no matter what he does in his off time.

what they are saying is you cant wear your pants like that at Northpark, his ilk belongs at Valley View or Town East. It doesnt matter that its Dez, its just thats its thug looking black kids at uppity rich white persons mall.

He's 22. Who doesn't cuss out a mall cop at 22? I see just as many emo white kids with their pants down. I'm in my 30's, but when does the pants past your ass thing get old to these kids?

First, motherb!tches!

Injured rookie is a nonstory. Didn't get arrested is nonstory. Sport isn't being played next year is nonstory. The sport is in its offseason making this entire thing one big nonstory.

Now olive oil, portobello mushrooms, white mushrooms, shallots, Arborio rice, white wine, chives, and parmesan cheese, stir it, get it warmed up, less than 30 minutes later you've got risotto. That's a story. Trust me, I cook and clean for a living.

Or you can think Dez is news. In which case you probably think Sean Salisbury is cool, tight t shirts are cool, sleeping with a new skanks each week is cool, eating at Dukes...or worse, Twin Peaks is cool, driving Audis and BMWs and partying in Addison is cool, working out all the time and getting pumped to watch a homoerotic humpfest between two dudes in a cage...but I digress. We know what loser(s) I'm referring to me.

Me, I spend all day trolling a low rated blog. I create fake names and click like on my own posts. That's a winner. Can't be that. When these losers are in their mid-40s they won't be as awesome as me.

Why do blacks rape so much? 1 in 3 South African black men admit to committing multiple gang rapes. That's in da mudderland. What about here in the good ole USA?

USDOJ annual interracial rape stats: from victims surveys

Black man raping white woman: over 37,000 per year (that number is thirty-seven thousand!)

White man raping black woman: less than 10 per year (LESS THAN TEN)

In short, eat shit and die.

You think Richie's first instinct as professional contrarian and amateur radio host will keep him from bringing up race? He'll go to that well the second he feels like Greggo has the upper hand in the discussion. It's one of the few debate cards Richie has, and he plays the "get louder", "insist I'm right", and "repeat the same point" cards to death.

I listened to about two minutes of the old people driving debate yesterday, and Richie's tactic was to ignore logic and common sense and just be condescending.

Well, we all know they are going to lead the show off with it and then they will probably devote 1 segment an hour to talking about it, so my guess is an hour and 15 minutes, which is probably an hour and 10 minutes too long.

I've seen plenty of white kids that do it, I'm sure they get hassled by the cops too. He's guilty of immaturity and having too much money for his own good. If he went out with a career ending injury tomorrow, he's broke in two years.

He cussed out off-duty Dallas cops. We all know Dez isn't the brightest, but he should be slightly smarter than that.

Twitter will be the downfall of some athlete with a pea brain posting before thinking here soon enough. See Mike Bacsik on a much larger scale.

Radio Spy is wrong, Rage constantly drags race into the picture as some pathetic way to win over the black community because they can't do it with talent because well, they don't really have any. They will obviously do this again today with Dez. They only real question here will be who will be on the side of Dez and who will defend the mall cop and attack him as being a racist.

I dont really disagree with you, but we cant have scary black men sagging, they might be in a gang or want to rape our lilly white soccer moms. Hey, if dez or anyone for that matter told me they would buy my macbook or Iphone if I let them cut, Id be like hell yeah. That shits expensive, everyone behind me could go to hell

I get what you're saying about the Dez Bryant incident. I don't have a problem with that, but kergo's comment was disjointed and incoherent. I don't know why it got 8 likes (to this point). That's probably a record or close to it on this blog.

I guess I don't get it. This was a decent, lengthy post by Richie. That seems to be what everyone is asking for. Then some guy gets on here trolling and babbling incoherently about food and social life in the Dallas suburbs. You give an ovation for that? That was one of the dumbest things I've ever read. If I've read his post correctly, he says he cooks and cleans for a living and admits to creating fake names. Really, do I just not get it?

I think this story is ridiculous. I'm sure North Park will crack down on everyone now, but there are plenty of white kids that do this. I think it's more than just the pants. As a parent with boys and girls, the saggy pants are fine, how about some regulation on short skirts? I know I'll get vilified because this forum is all guys, but holy hell. RW calls him a criminal, I don't see a mug shot for him anywhere nor him going to jail. Get it?
