You’re Damn Right I Take Offense To That

Can you imagine living the life of a football star? How about a football star who plays for the Dallas Cowboys? That would be like living a dream. Getting paid millions of dollars to play the game you love for the best team in the nation, yeah I would say that is definitely living the dream.

However, with the good comes the bad. Tabloid reporters, paparazzi stalkers and obsessed fans, oh my!

Honestly I could care less who Tony Romo is dating. I don’t care if Miles Austin was seen on a yacht with a famous reality star. Some call it a jinx, and now some are saying maybe a good luck charm. If they do their job and stay focused, does it really matter?

On the other hand, there are some things you just don’t do in public when you are a professional football player.

Our class clown, if you will, Martellus Bennett has made a horrible fool out of himself once again. In a video that has since been removed, Bennett dressed in a long beard at a tattoo parlor on Independence Day impersonates terrorist Osama Bin Laden.

“Y’all been looking for me? I’m making bombs!”

It’s not funny, and definitely offends me as an American especially on the day we celebrate our freedom. While thousands of men and women fight for us overseas, Mr. football player thinks its funny to disrespect them on a day he should be honoring the very thing they are fighting for.

I believe when players are given the honor calling themselves Dallas Cowboys they need to realize they represent something bigger than their oversized egos. Just like what Jerry Jones told Terrell Owens before releasing him, this is about something bigger than both of us, this is about the team.

How about you start thinking before you embarrass the organization? You are not a racy comedian who makes money by causing controversy, you are a professional football player. I think its time you start acting like one.

  1. I’m tired of this clown. He knew damn well what he was doing and how wrong it was. I hope America’s Team cuts him for mocking the country on it’s birthday.

    I haven’t heard about this. wow!

  3. Rob V.

    Cut his ass now. This way he has more time to make videos. A lot of talent, but no commitment. I was watching Hard Knocks the other day and saw when coach Garrett told him something and all he did was look at the camera and smile as if to say yea right. No respect for the game he has been blessed to play. Cut him and do it now!!!!!

    Never was or will be a fan of his. Just like everyone else here, I think he’s a clown and just doesnt get “it”. He has done some charitable things around Dallas, notably meeting Morgan McArthur and her family and paying for a tour of the stadium, which I think is a heck of a thing to do, especially considering her ailment, however this does not give him a pass to act like an idiot. He wont be cut. He is too cheap and has to much upside, however if he doesnt seriously improve this year, he will surely be given his walking papers.

    • I agree with you Nate, and I dont see the Cowboys cutting him for the reasons you cited. I do wish they’d find a take for him and possibly get us a 4th or 5th round pick.
