    I wonder what was the paraphernalia?

    Do you think this will keep Irvin from being inducted to the Hall of Fame?

    Depends on the outcome. However, I don't believe that Irvin would have gone in this year anyway.

    I would think if this amounts to anything and is a drug issue Michael will lose his cushy ESPN job.

    The news clip said it was a misdemeanor charge. So I guess no drugs were found. I'm totally clueless about this type of stuff.

    Maybe he just got caught with some rolling papers to roll some cigarettes.

    no, roaches are insects. I guess he gets to re-create all his scenes from the longest yard.

    He's the bonehead of the year if he's caught with anything drug related. I like Michael; I appreciate what he did while playing and he has the world by the tail. Nice family, great job, fame, fortune. I just don't understand the pull of the drug culture but it sure destroys people's lives.

    My cousin was caught with roaches back in high school and he was charged with drug paraphernalia

    I love the Cowboys and am sorry this happened, but at the same time, this may explain a lot of the *****ic statements coming out of Irvin's mouth during the Terrell Owens affair.

    I've been reading things online, DMN stuff and just in reading between the lines I would NOT be surprised if Jerry doesn't sign Terrell. I just have that funny feeling from hearing some things he's said that he's intrigued by the possibility. I don't know what Bill might think about it but I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see a contrite Terrell having a news conference one day with Jerry. I don't think Jerry would care if that would set well with the fans or not.

    Michael has always said sort of stupid things...to me he's not very well spoken but I guess his football experiences warrant the ESPN job. In the case of Terrell I think he's just backing a friend.

    If I'm not mistaken (and I definitely could be on this one), he was out of broadcasting for a couple of years the last time he was caught with drugs.

    Fox Sports may not even take him now.

    Looks like his career is going down with a :thud:

    I think he's going to start preaching on late night TV with MC Hammer and the old lady with blue hair! :loser

    I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt and believing his story about helping a friend in rehab. He even named a reverend and a particular faith-based treatment program here in Houston on the Dan Patrick Show today, so I'm not sure how far he would want to take a falsehood. Besides, who are we to say he's lying? idonno: (I'm not a Cowboy or Irvin fan...I've only started enjoying his personality and analysis since he became a media dude)

    I've never judged people by their addictions anyway. I judge people by what they DO on those addictions.
