Some tasks are just too difficult for millionaire players to handle all by themselves.:chef:

Dez Bryant warned after NorthPark disturbance (http://www.wfaa.com/news/crime/Dez-Bryant-warned-after-NorthPark-disturbance-118467614.html)

DALLAS — Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant received a criminal trespass warning from off-duty police officers at NorthPark Center on Saturday night after being involved in a disturbance.

In a story first reported on WFAA.com, Bryant was told not to come back to the mall for three months.

According to the official police report, Bryant and three friends were stopped by the uniformed, off-duty officers working security shortly before 8 p.m. at the popular shopping center after they were observed "wearing their pants halfway down their hips exposing their underwear."

The police asked the men to pull their pants up.

"Mr. Bryant’s response to the request was profanity laced and [NorthPark] center representatives felt the outburst merited a request for Mr. Bryant to leave the premises," according to a Dallas police statement issued Tuesday evening.

"What the [expletive] are you stopping me, like I stole something," Bryant was quoted as saying by a News 8 source. "I'm not leaving until my attorney and my representative get here."

Police said Bryant continued cursing as the off-duty officers escorted him to his vehicle.

"Mr. Bryant entered his vehicle but parked in a fire lane still refusing to leave, necessitating a request for on-duty officers to respond to the location," the Dallas police statement said.

The police report noted that NorthPark has a history of problems with Bryant, including a "major disturbance" at a restaurant involving a woman, a parking violation, and cutting in line at the Apple Store.

Under the terms of the warning, Bryant would be subject to arrest if he returns to the mall within 90 days.

A message posted on Dez Bryant's verified Twitter account Tuesday evening offered this reaction:

The real story has been put out on 103.3.. It's really a non story..the media need something to talk about.anyway how has everyone day been?

The Dallas Cowboys have not commented on this incident.

On Sunday morning, Bryant's teammate Bryan McCann was arrested at a downtown Dallas nightclub for public intoxication. McCann refuted the charge in a written statement.

In both the Bryant and McCann cases, police said "the outcome could have been avoided if the parties involved had simply complied with instructions given by the involved officers."

I believe it has to do with the fact that you don't get to wear a belt in jail, and your pants frequently sag down because of it. Its like a toughness status symbol i guess.

The irony of course is that if your pants come down in jail, well, you know. :butterfly:

If you have to be told to pull your pants up.....

I mean, at Mardi Gras....where damn near anything goes....if you show your undergarments it takes about .4 seconds to have a trio of police on you, arresting you and reading you rights with a taser pointed at your neck and I am NOT kidding about that in any sense.

Since when does outrage become the response instead of flat embarassment? HEY MAN, I can see your underwear and I don't appreciate it, how 'bout ratcheting that shit up?!? I'd be like, damn, I just got served.

It was also a way to let everybody know in prison you like to ride the cotton pony or you just became someone's *****.

I teach high school and when I see this, I also say, "dude, is that a stain on your boxers?" once everybody turns to look, those pants can't get up fast enough.

what is really stupid looking is the skinny jeans that students sag with...

I can sort of understand why Bryant would be ticked. It used to irritate me to no end when clerks would follow me around in stores and ask me if I was going to buy something just because I had long hair and earrings etc.

That being said I'm not defending his reaction. He should have just calmly told the mall that he was going to take his multimillion dollar checking account somewhere else and then leave. They shouldn't have had to ban him. I wouldn't want to go there anyway.

It appears that he is taking kind of the opposite approach:

Instead of taking his business elsewhere, Bryant is working to get his way back into the mall. His adviser David Wells, a former bail bondsman in Dallas, went to the mall on his behalf, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Wells says Bryant has spent thousands of dollars at the mall and should be treated better.

I think that is just examples of 2 dudes, not him.

I'm not really sure what to think of all of this. Obviously the guy needs to grow up alot. Multiple incidents at one mall is telling. He has to get past these minor things and be professional. Wake up dude or your gone and wasting talent.

But overall I'm kind of laughing at the media attention over droopy drawers. That whole trend is stupid but not criminal. Though I don't want to see crack.

On a side note I go to this mall all the time because my sister lives up the street in HP. It is a nice mall. But it isn't like an upscale palace where he can't go elsewhere. It is just more quaint with better places to eat. He can go to the Galleria.

This is funny. The retailers are upset. He buys and is fun

According to a Wednesday story by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, retailers described Bryant as a playful, friendly, sometimes loud, but definitely a loyal customer.

“I need to call him to see if we need to send him anything,” Tiffany Edmonds, a supervisor at the Gucci Store, told the Star-Telegram. “He’s here quite often. He is an amazing customer. He is always nice with the clients. He signed autographs. He is very pleasant.”

“We are sad to see him gone,” a parking attendant told the publication. “He would tip ... 40 or 50 bucks every time. He was good to us. He treated us well.”

According to a Star-Telegram source, Bryant shopped at the NorthPark Foot Locker three times a week, and routinely signed autographs for customers at the store.

“He has all the Lebrons and Jordan shoes,” the source said. “If we don’t have it we will order it for him.”

A couple of years ago, I created a thread called, "Pull your damn pants up", when I saw this fool walking out of Frye's with his pants halfway down, and wondered why anyone would think that is somehow cool.

I got vilified six ways to Sunday for being a racist. So what changed? How is this different?

And I got a question for the droopy-drawered crowd. Do chicks actually dig that sort of thing?

I freakin' hate that look. Heck I don't even understand how their pants don't fall down. As a matter of fact at a restaurant a week or two ago I almost complained to the manager because one of our servers had his pants down and I don't appreciate seeing your underwear while your serving my food. As wives do, mine urged against the complaint although she agreed it was ridiculous.

I had a similar experience in an eating establishment with a female server with a hot pink thong almost fully exposed when she bent over to place the food on the table. But this is not called "sagging." It goes by the name of "whale tale."

The thing that kills me is that "sagging" has managed to stay around for quite awhile. Usually no matter how silly or offensive a trend is it goes away within a couple of years or 5 or so at the high end. This thing is probably 15 plus years old. Remember baggy jeans (modified saggin) have come and gone long ago.

What's the problem? People like to admire the female body. The male body, not so much. This is a double standard I'll gladly support. Hey Mr Bryant...tell your friends to pull their damn pants up! Nobody wants to see your buddy's ass hanging out of his jeans.

Now if this trend became popular with women, that is a fashion trend I would gladly get behind. :) Also while we're talking about double standards regarding what's publicly acceptable regarding fashion...it's not like women are allowed to walk around topless.

It's no problem, not for me. Fleshy knockers in full display in the mall are always good for a little titillation of the ole libido. It's just that approval of such behavior in this context, it's really kinda hypocritical. But no man, not a problem for me.

We learn more about Bryant's true character.

Dez Bryant sued for $246,000 in jewelry (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/03/28/dez-bryant-sued-for-246000-in-jewelry/)

As Rosenthal pointed out this morning, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant may shop wherever he wants to shop.

But it’s important that he pay for whatever he buys.

PFT has learned that Bryant has been sued by a jeweler who allegedly produced several custom items for Bryant in 2010. Per the complaint filed today in the District Court of Dallas, Texas, A+A Diamonds, Ltd. d/b/a Rafaello & Co. alleges that Bryant received $267,000 worth of jewelry — and that he has paid only $21,000.

This means that (abacus engaged) Bryant owes $246,000.

Bryant allegedly made multiple purchases, before and after the 2010 draft. On January 22, 2010, he bought $75,000 worth of jewelry. On February 8, 2010, he made a whopping $144,000 purchase, including a $60,000 custom charm. On February 16, 2010, he purchased $25,000 more in jewelry. On May 24, 2010, Bryant purchased a $23,000 diamond bracelet.

Attached to the complaint are a purchase order supposedly signed by Bryant, along with the various invoices.

Bryant signed a contract last year with $8.5 million in guaranteed money, so he can afford to pay his bills. It’s unclear why he hasn’t.

Bryant lost a $50,000 earring during a game against the Giants. A security guard found the item. The incident came a day after Bryant tweeted a picture of a diamond-encrusted necklace with his number, 88. “I had to show the world my 88 necklace,” Bryant said at the time.

Apparently, he has yet to feel a similar compulsion to show Rafaello & Company the money for it.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is being sued for non-payment of $246,000 worth of jewelry by a New York-based company in a civil suit filed Friday in Dallas.

Bryant purchased $267,000 worth of jewelry from A+A Diamonds LTD d/b/a Rafaello & Company, which makes high-end jewelry for celebrities and athletes.

Bryant's attorney, Texas state Sen. Royce West, said they are trying to settle the issue.

"Is there a relationship between Dez and the jeweler? Yes," West said Monday afternoon. "The issue is how much is owed and when it's due. That's the issue. I think we'll solve it quickly."

Bryant's most expensive purchase was a $60,000 custom charm bracelet. He made the purchases on four different days last year, spending as much as $144,000 on Feb. 8, 2010, according to court documents.

"We'll let the lawsuit speak for itself," said Mike Bowes, a Dallas-based attorney who represents the plaintiffs. "My clients in New York worked for several months with Mr. Bryant's counsel to work something out with no satisfactory resolution."

Bryant could not be reached for comment.

From my understanding he bought all this jewelry before he was even drafted. So he essentially bought it with "store credit" and apparently hasn't paid for it yet.

According to another article he's being sued for over $290,000 for more jewelry and tickets he bought before he was drafted and hasn't paid for yet.

According to papers filed Friday in Dallas County, a New York jeweler claims that Bryant has not paid $240,000 for several pieces of jewelry he ordered on four invoices from January to May 2010. He was drafted by the Cowboys in the first round on April 22.

Also, new motions were filed last week in a 2010 Tarrant County lawsuit that claims Bryant has not paid for $293,000 worth of jewelry and $12,350 worth of sporting event tickets he charged before the Cowboys drafted him.

More from Dez

http://thescoopblog.dallasnews.com/archives/2011/03/dez-bryants-jeweler-isnt-the-o.html

According to the Tulsa World , Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was sued last January over $3,479.80 in rent and damages that a landlord in Stillwater, Okla., claims he's owed.

"He still has not paid us," the property manager is quoted as saying. "He will not answer our calls."

Bryant rented the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home while attending Oklahoma State University.

On Monday, it was reported that Bryant has been separately sued by two jewelers who claim that he owes them more than $500,000.

Before that, of course, he got into a row with security personnel at NorthPark Center, who said he became belligerent when he and some friends were told to hike their saggy pants up.

Nice! You see, to men, and I would venture to say, some women, that's pleasing to the eye.

But does any woman find it sexy when a man’s jeans are hanging half way off his ass and his undies are boldly displayed for the world to see?

Since the answer is a resounding "NO!", then why do it?

It was also a way to let everybody know in prison you like to ride the cotton pony or you just became someone's *****.

I teach high school and when I see this, I also say, "dude, is that a stain on your boxers?" once everybody turns to look, those pants can't get up fast enough.

what is really stupid looking is the skinny jeans that students sag with...

I'm thinking it's less prison or ghetto culture, and more PLUMBER'S CULTURE!

Dez Bryant faces second lawsuit

By Calvin Watkins
ESPNDallas.com


One day after a civil lawsuit was filed against Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant saying he owed $246,000 worth of jewelry to a New York-based company, another civil lawsuit has emerged against him and his adviser David Wells.

Eleow Hunt, a Colleyville, Texas, jeweler and ticket broker, said Bryant hasn't paid for jewelry and tickets to sporting events or repaid personal loans that collectively total in excess of $600,000, according to a court filing from Tarrant County.

The lawsuit says that Bryant, who was about to become a junior at Oklahoma State when the spending spree allegedly began, was supposed to repay Hunt when he signed either an NFL or promotional contract, whichever came first. Bryant and Wells signed 17 receipts from January 2009 to July 2010, the lawsuit said. The longest wait between purchases was 2˝ months.

Attached to the lawsuit are copies of receipts for jewelry that Hunt said was made for the receiver and hasn't been paid for. The items include everything from a "custom Cartier diamond watch" to a "white gold diamond dog tag set" and "custom diamond engagement ring." The receipts for more than 40 pieces of jewelry total $588,500.

Hunt also claims he loaned Wells $26,000 to cover Bryant's expenses and to provide him with spending money before he was drafted. The lawsuit says Wells repaid $15,000.

Also, the lawsuit alleges Bryant owes $15,850 in unpaid sporting event tickets. Bryant was given 10 tickets worth $5,750 for the Cowboys' 2009 regular-season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles. Bryant also got six tickets worth $3,750 for the Cowboys' playoff victory over the Eagles that same season. Cowboys games were not the only ones Bryant was given tickets for. He received four tickets to watch the Mavericks play the Cleveland Cavaliers in December 2009. The cost of the tickets totaled $2,500, according to the lawsuit.

"Mr. Hunt sells custom-made jewelry to athletes and entertainers," Hunt's attorney, Beth Ann Blackwood, said. "Mr. Bryant says he would pay and hasn't and it finally resulted in filing a lawsuit."

It was not immediately clear if the NCAA or Oklahoma State were aware of the lawsuit. He had already run afoul of NCAA rules in 2009, being ruled ineligible for lying to investigators about having lunch with Deion Sanders.

And this isn't Bryant's first controversy as a pro. He reacted badly when veteran Roy Williams asked him to carry his pads in Bryant's first training camp. He ended up getting stuck picking up the tab for a $54,896 dinner with teammates. A Dolphins executive was also punished for asking in a pre-draft interview whether Bryant's mother was a prostitute. And just last week, he had a run-in with an off-duty police officer at a Dallas-area mall over someone in his group having sagging pants.

Hunt says he's dealt with Wells in the past and the pair had a successful relationship with Wells' cousin, former Texas Tech wide receiver and current San Francisco 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree. Hunt said he has known Wells since the late 1990s.

Bryant's attorney, state Sen. Royce West, declined comment on the specifics in the lawsuits, but noted they are "sheer allegations."

"What we're seeing is Dez Bryant being singled out," West said. "There are lawsuits. They will be resolved."

Wells declined to comment, as did the Cowboys.

The total of the two lawsuits that have emerged in the past two days total over $850,000, not including damages or legal fees.

Last season with the Cowboys, Bryant made $2.84 million in base salaries and bonuses. He also received an undetermined amount from Under Armour and other income from personal appearances.

Bryant is scheduled to receive a base salary of $1.1 million this year with a $1million roster bonus. He cannot receive the roster bonus until the NFL lockout ends. He will receive his base salary over a 17-week span starting in September.

The latest lawsuit was filed last year, but a motion filed last week by another of Bryant's attornies, Veretta Frazier, asked the court to move the lawsuit from Tarrant County to Dallas County. Blackwood responded to the motion by saying the case should remain in Tarrant County.

Well this dude had moron written all over him heading into the draft. Hell, the guy got kicked out of college because he was stupid enough to kick it with Deion Sanders and then lie about. Deion Sanders has proven himself to be nothing but trouble for young athletes and anyone he hovers over. Then Dez has the background and the controversy with his mom as well. The guy just has problems surrounding him.

I wonder if the looming lockout is going to cause any other creditors to start calling in their chips with players. Dez can't be the only one.

College coach says Dez Bryant’s situation “saddens” him (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/04/01/college-coach-says-dez-bryants-situation-saddens-him/)Posted by Mike Florio on April 1, 2011, 8:40 AM EDT

APWhen we were last paying attention to Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy, he was reminding us that he’s a man. And that he’s 40. He said those things because he didn’t like the fact that one of his players had been picked on by a reporter.

This time around, Gundy is picking on one of his former players, sort of.

Speaking to the Tulsa World regarding the storm of lawsuits engulfing receiver Dez Bryant, Gundy said, “It saddens me that [Bryant] is in that situation, and it saddens me that a [former] OSU player is tied in with it and it’s negative.”

It possibly saddens Gundy because it pulls his program into a what-did-they-know-and-when-did-they-know-it conundrum with the NCAA regarding Bryant’s alleged receipt of hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry while at Oklahoma State. And, of course, Gundy’s answers to those time honored questions currently are “nothing” and “never.”

“The first I heard of it was when you guys heard of it [this week],” Gundy said. “Those issues are very delicate and they’re hard to speak to. . . . When it hit our office, it was news to everybody on our floor.”

We find that hard to believe. Guys get flashy jewelry for one reason — so that they can flash it. We suspect that, when Bryant did, those within the Oklahoma State program quickly looked the other way.

A couple of years ago, some kids stole a car, and ended up in a (moderately) high speed chase with the police on Sawdust in The Woodlands. The pursuit ended when they lost control and turned the car over in the parking lot of the building where I worked at the time.
When we heard the noise, we all looked out the window in time to see the kids bail from the car, and run.
One of then had his pants hanging half way down his ass, and while he was running, the pants fell down, tripping him in the process. The police got him while he was down, and got the cuffs on.
Most of the cops were not what you'd consider to be very athletic, and I'm pretty sure the kid would have gotten away if not for his "style"...

According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, the "feeling at Valley Ranch" is that the Cowboys remain committed to Dez Bryant despite his recent mall incident and string of lawsuits for unpaid jewelry.

Sources tell Breer that there's plenty of in-house concern, but owner Jerry Jones has "built a bridge" with Bryant, and is a believer in second and third chances. One team source observed that Bryant has a "lack of life skills" at age 22. Another says he's "never seen that before" when talking about Bryant's on-field talent. Said a third source, "A lot of it is not his fault, it's because of the way he was brought up. He's got a good heart, and the best intentions, but all this stuff happens and it takes away from that."

Dominoes. (http://aol.sportingnews.com/ncaa-football/story/2011-03-31/oklahoma-state-to-look-at-latest-dez-bryant-allegations)

Recent revelations about Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant’s finances could mean bad news for his former college, Oklahoma State, according to multiple reports.

Bryant received jewelry and tickets to sporting events as early as late 2008, according to lawsuits filed against him in Texas. Bryant was eligible and playing with Oklahoma State at the time; his reception of the gifts constitutes an NCAA violation and should have made him ineligible.

The suits claim Dez Bryant was issued the goods on credit, and that he would pay for the items when he signed his first professional sports or marketing contract. (AP Photo)“That’s new information to us,” Oklahoma State associate athletic director Kevin Fite told the Tulsa World on Tuesday. “It’s something we’re certainly going to look at.”
