Thought of you, and this post, while listening to Frank Deford on NPR this morning.

Wally,

I hope you are wrong, but my gut tells me you are right.

I wonder if the Cowboys' willingness to get rid of TO and the problems that trail in his wake if he were 10 years younger, instead of a starting-to-lose-a-step 35. Never, never underestimate the ability of a team owner to believe that "it will be different here."

Good article but really enjoyed the

Asshole Rating Self-Exam (ARSE) - Are you a certified asshole?

This should form part of the application process. The results might be interesting.

As a life-long Dallas Cowboys fan, I couldn't agree more. Jerry Jones (Dallas' owner) has been known for years for taking on "talented NFL assholes" in attempt to get more championships. This off-season he seems to be going away from that in the cutting of four very loud assholes in TO, Tank Johnson, Adam "Pacman" Jones and Roy "horse collar" Williams.

After reading The No Asshole Rule, I had suggested that it would be a great book for Jerry to read on a message board. It's a long shot, but maybe he did and took it to heart. If so, congrats on turning around one of the biggest assholes on the planet!
