The thing you guys absolutely refuse to understand is both sides of the story. In fact, none of you even try.You have automatically painted Bryant a villain because it's easy to listen to ESPN and other media outlets assume that he is, despite the fact that you all know that sports media is more entertainment than journalism.
Everyone here sympahized with LT because he needed help (also we're biased as fans and take care of our own). Well, the same goes for Bryant as well. The difference is Byant isn't a drug addict. He's a troubled kid from a broken home. And another difference is that Bryant isn't too stuck in his way to correct things.
Again, the biggest thing wrong with Bryant stems from lack of sense of discipline and responsibility, yet Bryant AGREED to these restrictions. And anyone following him knows that he's been taking steps to improving that aspect of his life.
And for god's sakes he did not beat his mother.
He's taking the steps toward increasing his responsibility and he really has been for the most part since the end of last season.
I'm curious though... what are you expecting to see change?
What exactly are you looking to see?
1) accepts the help he is getting (translate: can stand being treated like a 5-year-old) and works hard to change, or
2) implodes on and off the field as a result of the pressure and being demorilized by the Cowboys organizationm (like Pacman), or
3) somewhere in between and fades into mediocrity
either way, it's certainly an interesting side show you got going on down there in Texas.
These rules are worse than any 2 game suspension I can think of. Honestly I would never agree to it...but that's just me. And I'm not supporting Dez in any way shape or form...just saying this is humility at it's finest.
