Not choir boys. But it wasn't till after he left that they went all gangsta..
At least that's the way I want to remember it.
The Cowboys were notorious for having some rather 'colorful' players, both during the Landry era and the Jimmy Johnson era.
Heck, just the white house alone should tell you something:
Infamous Cowboys White House still stands
“The house … was rented under the name of receiver Alvin Harper and the new neighbors in an exclusively white, low-key community were 6-foot-5 inch, 300 pound African American men escorting an endless conveyor belt of large-breasted blondes. Nate Newton insists the White House was a haven for neither prostitution (“What did we need a prostitute for? Women laid down for us”) nor drugs (Never saw ‘em), yet his take is disputed by myriad teammates and people in the know.”
When the house and its tenants’ purpose became public just after the apex of the Cowboys’ Super Bowl runs, this screamed of a team out of control. A television station’s hidden camera caught star receiver Michael Irvin with what appeared to be cocaine. Wrapped around were a string of other arrests and other publicly embarrassing situations that made it football’s most interesting franchise back then.

I'll be honest with ya', I'm so starved for a championship as a Houston pro football fan for life that I feel the same way many times.
Championships gloss over the dirt, if you know what I mean.
