The accusation of Eric Williams raping a woman while Irvin held a gun on her duing drug fueled act was proven a lie

Charges were completely dropped
Not that they were choir boys but that allegation never happened

Actually, I had not even heard that story. And you are right, they were not choir boys. As I understand, there were some hookers & coke dealers who got rather wealthy off that group (not JUST the 2 mentioned).. Not that the entire organization was evil, but there were some truly bad actors.
 
That incident dominated the news for most of 1997. You mentioned both Williams and Irvine as snorting and raping their way around the DFW area. AS far as I know that was the only incident where they were falsely accused.
As I said neither they nor many of the Boys were innocent choir boys BUT other than the false accusation no other rape charges were made against them.

My apology if I falsely accused anyone, but I've heard more than 1 or 2 stories involving that group & their involvement with legal authorities.
 
Remember a Marriot front desk clerk accused Irvin of sexual harassment in Feb 23 during Super Bowl week. He lost both of his NFL jobs. After reviewing the tape that Marriot tried to withhold AND hearing unsolicited testimony from 3 men who just happened to be at lobby bar and had interacted with him ( one was a Philly fan, One was from Australia and had no idea who Irvin was) Michael's attorneys sued Marriot. No charges were even pursued. Marriott must have settled out of court.
Then again in Feb 24 there were allegations filed against Irvin in Allen tx. Those charges have now been dropped.
Don't forget Dak had allegations brought against him. Those charges have been dropped.

1sa You are right. We just don't know what all they get away with BUT neither should they have their lives and livelihoods destroyed by women thinking they can make easy money

I did a Google search of Cowboys & the law. What I found was that the Cowboys weren't (aren't) the worst offenders among NFL teams. Several teams had more run-ins & more serious issues with law enforcement. True, the accusation involving Williams was retracted (my sincere apology). However, there were issues of Cowboys involved in hookers, blow & sexual misconduct (some being dropped for financial considerations) and other High Crimes & Misdemeanors.
 
Well Isa
to be fair to you Williams had other run ins with the law and others skirted close to OR got favorable dismissals from local police.
It surprises me that the Cowboys were so far down the list.
That said I really want Dak to be the good guy he appears to be

...so they were sitting on the Group W bench?

Agree. Hope that piece of Cowboy history is over.
 
At some point the Universities will have to say screw the signing period and natiional letter of intent and just sign the player to a contract to pay them x per year for x years including tuition. The ncaa can rule them ineligible and then the player and the university can sue the ncaa out of existence (at least in football, basketball and baseball).
 
The winner, by a nose, the Fightin' Minnesota Vikings. Not sure they broke the record set by the Cowboys when Erik Williams, Michael Irvin, et. al. were, snortin', whorin' & rapin' their way around Dallas & surrounding counties.
I will admit that I possibly/probably allowed my disdain for Jerrah & the Cowboys to cloud my perceptions, so I will retract my comments & apologize to anyone I may have misjudged.
 
1sa No apology needed by me, am a mostly Cowboy fan. Everything you mentioned except for Eric and Michael non event is accurate. The Cowboys skirt the law and make up tons of the local sports news. If you are in the DFW area anyone would think the Cowboys are the worst of the worst. I groan every time a negative story airs,
I imagine if one is any other NFL city they get flooded with the negative news of that team.
BTW which NFL team do you like?

As a boy, I loved Johnny U & the Colts. Then the Cowboys were born & they became my team. While I have/had great respect for Tom L, he became way too predictable. I fell in love with Dan Pastorini & the Oilers so when they drafted Earl they became my team. Around the same time, Jerrah bought the Cowboys & classlessly fired Tom & Bud Adams held Houston hostidge over a new downtown stadium. Houston said "no" so Bud moved the team. I got disgusted with the whole mess & settled on College ball. So I have no interest in the NFL. My kids do Fantasy Football so I just watch Red Zone & root for whichever team employs the most Longhorns.
