Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was arrested in Miami which caused several people in the media thought and ran with it being Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. They had to print a retraction of course as the Raiders Bryant mugshot came back looking like King Hippo.
Former NFL defensive lineman Tony Casillas scoffed at the “deer antler spray” madness that surrounded Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis during Super Bowl week, telling a Dallas radio show Wednesday that his Cowboys teammates in the 1990s were fond of their own obscure potential enhancement product, a horrific-smelling veterinary ointment known as DMSO.
Via Dallas Morning News:
“When I heard about deer antler spray, I said that’s nothing. We used to use this stuff called DMSO. That’s what veterinarians put on horses’ muscles, and we used it in the locker room. We had a bottle and you’d take it. It goes right to the bloodstream,” Casillas told KRLD-FM. “I’m not sure about this deer antler stuff, but it was prevalent in our locker room. It’s called DMSO. You get it from the veterinarian. It’s an ointment that’s like anti-inflammatory. You put it on your skin and you put it on a muscle, and I guarantee you, in about 30 minutes you’d feel great. If you’re going to talk about the deer antler stuff, we used DMSO and people knew it. Everyone knew about it.”
Casillas is right. DMSO, which is short for dimethyl sulfoxide, wasn’t a secret in the 1980s and 1990s, as players openly discussed the medication, which was not approved by major sports leagues at the time but wasn’t exactly banned either. The wood byproduct, which is only approved for human use by the FDA as a preservative of organs for transplant and for interstitial cystitis, a bladder disease, was mostly obtained through veterinarians, who used it as an anti-inflammatory on horses and other large animals.
The Dallas Stars, fresh off a Twitter beef with the Dallas Cowboys and back on the ice for the first time in 2013, joined the parade of folks making fun of Manti Te’o on Saturday.
During the team’s season opener, an image flashed on the JumboTron heralding the presence of the non-existant girlfriend of the former Notre Dame linebacker. The team then posted a series of tweets hyping the presence of Te’o's “girlfriend”.
The Dallas Cowboys are currently sitting at a disappointing 5-6. And if you ask most Cowboys fans, Jerry Jones is mostly to blame. Mainly because of his unwillingness to admit that he needs help with making decisions about personnel. Despite how loud the calls have grown for Jones to step aside as GM, Jones has defiantly maintained that a GM other than himself will never happen.
So what is there left to do for Cowboys fans? Well, a Georgia man has turned to the Obama Administration for help. A man named Steven M. has petitioned the Obama Administration to remove Jones as owner and GM of the Cowboys citing that Jones’ “incompetence and ego have not only been an extreme disappointment for way too long, but moreover, it has caused extreme mental and emotional duress.” Yes, extreme mental and emotional duress.
When it comes to cheesesteaks, Rob Ryan doesn’t discriminate.
The Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator had the logo of a famous Philly cheesesteak restaurant on his play card during his team’s 38-23 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Pat’s King of Steaks, the famed Philadelphia cheesesteak haunt, got prime billing on the back of Ryan’s card on Sunday. That’d be like Eagles defensive coordinator having a picture of Southfork Ranch on his card.

Jerry Jones is both the owner and general manager of the Dallas Cowboys. The former says he’d have fired the latter if he weren’t both.
In an interview that aired before Sunday Night Football, Bob Costas asked Jones whether he’d have fired himself as general manager following his team’s years of struggling:
“Well, I think so, because he was there to dismiss. I’ve always worked for myself and you can’t do that. You basically have to straighten that guy out in the mirror when you work for yourself. But certainly, if I’d had the discretion, I’ve done it with coaches and certainly I would have changed a general manager.”Once you make it through that self-referential haze of circular logic, you realize Jones the owner is full of it. Why couldn’t he fire yourself. Just because it wouldn’t involve a conversation in front of a mirror, a pink slip and severance pay, doesn’t mean he couldn’t wave the white flag and bring in another person to take over as GM. His definition is all semantics. Jones doesn’t fire himself because he thinks he’s the best man for the job.
After watching his team drop to 3-5 in last night’s 19-13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was reportedly fuming. It didn’t get much better when he got down to the visiting locker room at the Georgia Dome and found himself forced to wait in the hallway.
“Jerry Jones just pounded locker room door because no one would let him in. It’s the angriest I’ve seen him all year. #Cowboys,” tweeted NBC5 sports anchor Matt Barrie.
Barrie’s tweet makes it hard to determine if Jones was locked out intentionally by coach Jason Garrett or members of the team’s staff or if it was a matter of security in a visiting stadium just not opening the doors quickly enough. But after losing a second straight game, especially on a day where they could have moved closer in the NFC East due to a Giants loss, Cowboys staffers should know better than to test the notoriously involved owner’s patience.
The Dallas Cowboys are nicknamed America’s team and want to make sure its fans know just how to cheer and sent them an email providing instructions.
Here’s what the email to the team’s season ticket holders said:
Dear [Season Ticket Holder],
Sunday we need every Dallas Cowboys fan to get on their feet, get loud and help the defense get a stop! Starting this week against the New York Giants, we will have a new third down graphic on the video board and we want you to get involved in the game.

It’s Friday so go ahead spend 3 minutes of your life watching the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders pose for pictures.
Every Thursday Sports Grind Entertainment will present you with the Mama Margie’s Major Meltdown. The recipient of this honor goes to Carolina Panthers quaterback Cam Newton for showing his immaturity after his teams loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the press conference. Newton went so far as to call a female reporter “sweetheart” and then was the talk of the NFL for the next three days.
Former NFL coaches and current NFL Network analysts Dennis Green and Brian Billick were the latest to let Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton have it after his “suggestion box” press conference following Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Asked what he would suggest to help Newton’s demeanor, Green said Monday on The Coaches Show: “You’ve got to talk to him. First off say, ‘Is that really the way you want to project yourself? Is that the kind of confidence you want the team to have in you?’ I mean, that’s pretty bad.”
Billick, reference his performance during Super Bowl XXXV week when talking about embattled linebacker Ray Lewis, was unsparing in his critique of Newton.
“This bothered me,” said Billick. “I think Cam Newton, for me, came across like a petulant child, pouting that things weren’t going his way.
“The problem I’m having with it is, Cam Newton — right now — I think he’s not only pouting because they’re 1-5, I think he also realizes he’s not the prettiest girl in the room anymore. RGIII’s kinda taken some of the attention away from him — I don’t think he likes that.”
It was apparently a big night for some Chicago Bears players. Late Tuesday night, Bears defensive lineman Israel Idonije tweeted the bottom of a dinner bill to his more than one million followers that said “Bears dinner” from Mastro’s, a steakhouse chain that has a location in Chicago. The restaurant charged $9,999 each for three Bears dinners, though it’s not exactly clear how many players attended. Idonije used the hashtag #rookienight, which suggests that he wasn’t paying. The bill total, before tip, came out to $38,091.91.
Idonije accompanied the copy of the bill, writing “Tonight’s Gonna be a Good Night!!”
The bill is much more expensive than the tab the Miami Dolphins’ rookies reportedly picked up for a steak dinner on Monday night. TMZ reported that “several unlucky rookies” picked up a $7,400 bill at Prime One Twelve in Miami beach. The website said 10 offensive linemen attended the meal.
TMZ said the rookies split the meal commensurate with how much each of them made.
The most famous rookie dinner bill was $54,896, the price Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant paid in 2010 for a meal as a penalty for refusing to carry Roy Williams gear.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo stars in a new Starter ad campaign called Never Stop.
An American Airlines plane chartered by the Miami Dolphins clipped a parked plane as it prepared to take off from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says no one was hurt but both American Airlines jets were damaged in the incident early Thursday.
American Airlines spokeswoman Andrea Huguely says the winglet of a Boeing 767 clipped the tail of an empty MD-80. The incident happened in a non-operational area where the airline provides charter service.
Both jets were taken out of service and the incident is under investigation.
She says a replacement American Airlines jet delivered the Dolphins to Miami around 7:30 a.m. EDT Thursday.
The Dallas Cowboys have instituted a strict set of off-the-field rules for troubled wide receiver Dez Bryant that includes a ban on strip club visits.
ESPN Dallas’ Calvin Watkins reports the modern day 10 five commandments went into effect Aug. 23 when the Cowboys returned from training camp. Among the new rules for the third-year wideout:
– Thou shalt not go to a strip club, nor any other club unless it’s approved by the Cowboys.
– Honor thy midnight curfew.
– Thou shalt not drink, nor covet the booze.
– Thou shalt travel at all time with a one-man security detail. Watkins says a team of three guards will trade shifts so someone is with Bryant at all times.
“(He is) very open-minded and cooperative,” Jerry Jones told reporters. “He’s doing the right things by his teammates, and everybody is counting on him.”

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones might have been quite a little during the offseason but the instant his team got to Oxnard for training camp he has unleashed the mouth vale.
Jones talked to the 105.3 The Fan of Dallas about the ongoing legal woes of wide receiver Dez Bryant by saying that the reason he hasn’t talked with Dez personally is:
“Because I’m too pissed to talk to him.’’
The district attorney may be pressing on, even as Bryant’s mother Angela Bryant wishes to drop the charges.
Every Thursday Sports Grind Entertainment will present you with the Mama Margie’s Major Meltdown. The recipient of this honor goes to Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant for attacking his mother during an argument, hitting her arms and face. He faces a charge of family violence, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine. Angela Bryant called 911 Saturday to complain her son was assaulting her. Police arrived to find her with a swollen wrist and thumb and bruising on her upper arms. Police say he hit her on the face with a ball cap and pushed her in the chest. Bryant posted $1,500 bond.
The Allen Wranglers have cut Terrell Owens, the former NFL wide receiver. Along with his roster spot on the Wranglers, Owens also loses his ownership stake in the IFL franchise.
“It’s disappointing and unfortunate, “but (he) could no longer be tolerated by the Wrangler organization,” Wranglers majority owner Jon Frankel said.
There were many reasons behind Frankel’s decision to dismiss Owens. The chief one was the fact Owens had refused to play in two key upcoming road games for the Wranglers. It didn’t help that Owens also was a no-show for a charity event at a local children’s hospital.
Frankel deemed Owens actions as a violation of his contract, leading to its termination and the receiver’s subsequent release.
The Texas-based club brought in the 37-year-old wideout in an attempt to draw some local fans familiar to Owens, who played for the nearby Dallas Cowboys from 2006-2008. Owens had to pick the Wranglers after he couldn’t find a sixth NFL team in 2011.
ESPN’s sideline reporter Erin Andrews and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s brother-in-law Chace Crawford are dating, according to reports.
The genetically gifted pair have been spotted out and about in New York several times now and have celebrity gossip sites buzzing about their status.
Crawford been out on “a couple” dates with Andrews, Us reports. “They’re getting to know each other,” but there’s a connection, their source says.
Police said late Tuesday that the former Dallas Cowboys star Deion Sanders has been cited for misdemeanor assault in the wake of an altercation with his estranged wife, Pilar Sanders, that got her arrested Monday at their mansion in the Dallas suburb of Prosper.
The Hall of Famer had tweeted Monday that she attacked him, and he even posted a photo of his children filling out police reports. He later removed the photo.
Police said further investigation led to a charge also being filed against Deion though it didn’t warrant his arrest. Prosper police spokesman Celso Martinez wouldn’t detail the allegations.
A day after Pilar was arrested, Deion had removed the tweeted photo. He also tweeted a different message: “Joy came this morning and we opened the door and let Joy in.”
Pilar Sanders, who was charged with misdemeanor assault and held overnight in county jail, was released Tuesday. Standing outside Collin County Jail, she said she was being treated unfairly.
“I’m a full-time mom, 100 percent for my children,” she said, her voice breaking. “And I just haven’t been given a fair shake.”
Deion and Pilar Sanders have been living in the same home in Prosper, months after Deion filed for divorce in December. Deion’s attorney, Rick Robertson, has said both had separate living areas within the large home.
After the alleged attack Monday, Deion tweeted that his children “just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. She’s going to jail (and) I’m pressing charges!”
The Sanders’ divorce file is under seal and a judge has placed both sides under a gag order.
Earlier Tuesday, before police announced the charge against Deion, Robertson said he didn’t see the tweets as a violation of that order because the alleged attack was a separate issue.
“The assault action that occurred was a criminal action that also constitutes family violence,” he said. “Pilar Sanders was arrested for that and jailed.”
A magistrate judge ordered her Tuesday to stay away from their home for 60 days. The judge also barred her from threatening or harassing her husband, KTVT-TV reported.
Separately, Pilar Sanders is suing Deion Sanders; his daughter from his first marriage, Deiondra Sanders; and Prime Time Enterprise Inc., for $200 million in damages. That case is scheduled to go to trial in September.
She is also suing Deion Sanders aunt, Laura Jones, alleging Jones assaulted her in February.
NFL Pro Bowlers DeMarcus Ware, Clay Matthews and Wes Welker have decided to encourage the conversation about adult diapers as they’re pitchmen for Depend Real Fit briefs.
Jesse Joe Hernandez, a convicted child sex offender who was in prison for the murder of Karlos Borja, a 10-month-old boy he was baby-sitting , 11 years ago, was executed Wednesday night by lethal injection.
