This will be quick, I promise. I know you don't have time to read a really long article, and at the moment I have no desire to write one. I wanted to mention something though. It's, of course, sports related and pertains to Dez Bryant. Did you see he walked off the field with just under two minutes to play during the game on Sunday.
So here it is a few days later, and people are ripping him to shreds. You know how the media can do that. They see someone's actions, assume they know all, and rip into the guy for doing what he did. Sure it was wrong that Dez didn't stay there on the field to watch the Cowboys lose, and one could argue that he didn't know the final outcome, and he might be needed.
Yet, I am going to go out on a limb here and say that Dez is very aware that he is being watched. Not only does the media report his every move, they don't seem to forgive him for the incident that occurred where he was involved with a domestic dispute with his mother. It's ruthless, in my opinion, and people seem to be so unforgiving.
Me, I look to understand a person's actions rather than judge it. I think that Dez Bryant is obviously frustrated. Who wouldn't be if you were on the Cowboys? He had an amazing catch, after the Cowboys blew a 23 point lead. It was only a matter of time before Tony Romo's predictable, self destructive playing would cause the Cowboys to fail to get a win.
So was Dez wrong to walk off the field in disgust or should he have remained. Of course, he should have stood on the sidelines in a mature fashion, and been there. Yet, he is a man who seems to be very self-aware and trying to control his emotions. He probably knew he wasn't going to be able to. I don't excuse his behavior but I seek to understand it. He's a young man who is trying and respectfully, there are prisons filled with people who have snapped due to an inability to control their tempers. Respectfully, I think Dez Bryant is doing a great job at learning about himself, and I respect that he's imperfect. I think there will come a day when he is able to have full control of his emotions, until then if he removes himself from a volatile situation, rather than exploding, well I think there are worse things he could do.
Still think Snickers, and the NFL ought to get together and work on an anger management spoof and help Dez to count to ten but until then, I'm fine that he walked off the field. Honestly, it's got to be incredibly difficult to watch your team go down, yet again. Men with anger issues are like pressure cookers, and Dez was smart enough to exit before he lost it. That's my take on it. I could be wrong, but that's okay. It's just my opinion, and I'm rooting for Dez to be mature, be grown up and a be really good guy. I don't mind that he's imperfect. Aren't we all? Oh by the way did you see all he did for the kids at the hospital?
