    They definitely should.
    I was just about to ask you what your take on the situation was, do you think the Cowboys are going to let him play if he is able to?

      I think he should be banned by the league. DUIs are nothing to play with, and in this case it has resulted in a death. In my opinion he has lost his privilege to play professional ball, and he honestly he should be in jail.

        Yeah, I could not believe that he was out on bail the day after this happened, absolutely sickening

          I agree that Brent, as a repeat offender and someone who has committed manslaughter, should be immediately suspended from the league, not to mention he should be serving jail time for said manslaughter.

          I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

            Although I've been labeled as a "sympathizer" with Brent, I agree that he shouldn't be allowed to play. Feeling badly for him doesn't mean I think he should go unpunished.

              This.

              I do think he should be with the team right now though. His mental state can not be good right now. He did a terrible an idiotic thing but this was not a stranger he killed, it was his teammate since college and from what hear, a best friend.

                People are people, and not many are inherently evil. Stupid? Definitely. But I agree with Rat on this one. Defending and sympathizing are two different things and it's just human nature to feel for another person, no matter how stupid or destructive their decisions are.

                I understand everyone has their own stories and opinions that affect their ideals so I'm not saying you're wrong in the way you think. But I don't think you should write off someones opinion just because you don't agree with it... especially when someone explained exactly why they feel the way they do.

                Believe me buddy, this ol Jarhead don't feel sympathy for no drunk driver that gets behind the wheel & takes a life, be he or she my mother/father brother/sister/cousin best friend..whatever! You do the crime, you do the time! Same goes for people that are life long smokers/dippers/alcoholics & die of any sort of self inflicted cancer or drug related illness due to their filthy addiction! Sucks to be them!

                That the Cowboys organization has yet to suspend this rat filth & is actually defending him tells me all I need to know about them as well. Also not disciplining Ratliff for mouthing off to & almost coming to blows with a senior citizen who is also the owner of the team makes the Cowboys organization even more of a joke to me.

                No accountability or responsibility is required to be a Dallas Cowboy!

                  Very Sad, Condolences to the family of Jerry Brown Jr.


                  Josh Brent made a terrible mistake, this has ruined his life and his career.

                        How's the view up there?

                        The guy who was killed had just as much a part in losing his life than the guy who was driving. It could of been either of them driving and the outcome could have been the same. He must of been a real idiot to get in a car with a guy he knew was drunk, but since he died, his life was "taken" and he is innocent according to you. I feel bad the guy lost his life, but he is in the same boat the other guy is, it's just that he paid the ultimate price and Brent has to live with this for the rest of his life.


                        I'm glad you have never made a mistake in your life and that if your Mother ever called you crying hysterically in jail in the same situation you would simply reply, "Sucks to be you, Ma!"

                        Let's put the women and children to bed and go lookin' for dinner

                            Found this on NFL.com

                            DALLAS -- An autopsy found that Dallas Cowboys practice-squad player Jerry Brown Jr. was not legally intoxicated when he was killed in a crash that led to an intoxication manslaughter charge against the teammate at the wheel.

                            The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office reported Thursday that Brown died of head and neck trauma when their vehicle overturned. He had a dislocated neck, a severely bruised spine and a blood-alcohol content of 0.056 percent. The Texas drunken-driving standard is 0.08 percent.

                            Police have said Cowboys nose guard Josh Brent, who was driving, had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit when after the Dec. 8 crash in Irving, a Dallas suburb. He remains free on $100,000 bond.

                            Police say neither man was wearing a seatbelt.
