Total overreaction by the front office instituting once again, draconian zero tolerance policies.

Taking out your frustrations for your sorry season on security guards after taking it out on young players is a sad and pathetic act by this team.

Well it seems you can't read

I really don't see why this is that much of a story, but then again, everything is a story this year if the Texans are even remotely involved.

If the security staff don't have the presence of mind to leave these guys alone, then the company is well within their rights to institute a policy. These guys are at work. It's not like these guys are seeing Tom Brady at a bar when they're off-duty. Then, he's fair game IMO. Good luck getting to him.

If they haven't been enforcing the policy, then the Texans should find another company to provide security. Seems to me that this could be considered a breach of contract.

Speaking of legalese, Texas is an "at-will" state anyway, so he could have gotten fired because his shoes didn't match his belt. Also, if this guy was in fact off-duty, then he should have taken off his badge. Then he's just a short guy in a blue suit.

I'll be surprised if anything comes of this.

Good guidelines from a law firm at the Link

I'm fully with CSC (and their policies) during the paid shift hours. I'm also cognizant of the fact that due to their positions, these officers had access unavailable to the general public. That said, it's not their fault that they don't sign out from their shift in an unsecured area.

One of the first slides say conduct outside of the workplace and this was not outside the workplace. Further I'd say if you employment is what gave you the access to Brady and your employer says not to do something you should probably avoid it at your place of work

Do you always believe what you read?

You have to read between the lines and go through the BS and figure out stuff for yourselves. You have to learn how to sniff out BS garbage like "its company policy."

They were fired because the team was still angry over the loss and they see their own security guards taking pics with the guy who just kicked their asses and they got mad, took it out on lowly security guards and fired them.

Learn how to sniff out company line BS.

This is one of them.

SAD, VINDICTIVE, PATHETIC MOVE BY THIS FRANCHISE.

These folks weren't employed or terminated by the texans smart guy.

You aren't "reading between the lines" you are making up facts based on nothing but misfiring brain cells.

:wadepal m:
A csc supervisor saw the event take place and terminated the employees on the spot. I'm sure the texans had no say in it. CSC provides the services for the rodeo and I'm sure their policy is the same for those entertainers and no the texans don't have a say if they term an employee


You aren't very bright

You can't accurately measure any of the 3 things you listed. That said there must be a strong disconnect between your "book smarts" and real life. It's not about the newspaper or internet but more about common sense

You still need to show potential damage to your company or reputation as at least one was off the clock. If anything, I'll bet this ham-fisted move backfires and costs them $$$.

It might if you are smoking a doobie in you car with a underage hooker doing the up and down while she drinks from a bottle of Crown. I think anything portraying employer negatively could be grounds for discipline including termination.
