Payback Time For Dez Bryant

Paul RaymondCorrespondent ISeptember 28, 2010

Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant has finally faced the consequences for his training camp actions. Did anyone really think Roy Williams would let Dez slide for not carrying his shoulder pads??? I know I didn’t, I’m actually surprised it took so long for Bryant to receive his punishment. So how did he get him back?

Back in the summer, Williams told Bryant things would be all good if he took the offense out to Pappas Bros. Steakhouse. Little did Bryant know was that Roy told the defense they could come along too. So with a 53-man roster out on the town for dinner would equal one large bill. That bill was $54,896, a little over $1,000 per person.

I know $1,000 per person dinner, that’s insane but when the Steakhouse serves bottle of wines that range from $600 to $9,000 the final tab seems modest to me. I think it’s kind of funny and a nice prank on Bryant, it’s something that happens to most rookies who buck tradition.

I see no problems with it but I know a lot of fans are pretty upset by this. There’s a chance that there could be no NFL in 2011 and fans don’t want to hear about players spending so much, it makes them look greedy.

This doesn’t do their public image any good but in all honesty I don’t think they care and personally I’m glad they don’t, cause I don’t. Instead I’m getting a good laugh at the ‘Boys paying Bryant back.
