Don't want to speculate until higher media people begin chatter, but this might get pretty serious.

Ok, Brent was a college teammate and Dallas teammate of Brown.

Jesus.

He was arrested for drunk driving before.

If I may quote from other posters, "Joshua Prince-Brent is a piece of trash"

The Cowboys have had a terrible year this year.

I really have no sympathy for either of the two idiots involved in the accident. Both of them are equally stupid for being in a car with a drunk driver. Bro you make more money than most people make over the course of a few years, get a ride home.

I do feel bad for the family and friends. I hope the driver spends many years in prison and enjoys flushing his life down the drain

It's a little harsh, especially for the individual not driving.

True

He may have been passed out when placed in car

Not the 1st time the Cowboys organization had something like this.

http://espn.go.com/dallas/nfl/story/...ls-jerry-brown

Quote:
This is the second time since 2003 a Cowboys player has been involved in a fatal car accident. On Jan. 14, 2003, Dwayne Goodrich, a second-round pick in 2000, was involved in a hit-and-run accident in which two people were killed.

Goodrich was convicted later that year of two counts of criminally negligent homicide and was released from prison in October 2011.

It's not harsh. Brent was arrested for drunk driving once before. Why is this death any different than any other death? Brent made a decision and it cost someone their lives.

I'm talking about the passenger, you referred to them both as idiots. We don't have all the details of what occurred other than Brent was over the limit. Calling the passenger an idiot is overboard, especially since the individual is dead.

True and not every DUI means these two were a total wreck. Based on the charges I would guess he had considerable alcohol. We don't know how aware Brown was of this though.

I wonder if the NFL would consider handing out fines/suspensions due to this.

Maybe it's me but it seems the number of DUI's are increasing. We've already had one felony this season (Ta'amu) and now this.

If these idiots cannot be responsible around alcohol, maybe the NFL should step in. It would be also to protect the innocent people who these morons endanger due to their recklessness.

I thought there were already fines/possible suspensions for this. Typically the team hands out punishment.

This sucks. It also cripples the cowboys now. Down both middle linebackers and now both nose tackles.

I thought it was only for serious offenses and not just regular DUI's? I could be mistaken though.

What I was thinking was more like 1st offense: Fine. 2nd offense: suspension. 3rd offense: longer suspension.

I'm not sure if there is something in play though, you may be right.

Numerous players have been fined and suspended for DUI's, amongst other crimes. The NFL owners apparently have a 24 hour phone number that the players can always call if they need a ride as well. Really no excuse at all for the players, and nothing more the league can really do.

Everytime I hear that we as a society are getting smarter and more progressive something like this happens. I'm sorry, we are as stupid as we have ever been in this world. First of all, the drunk driver was a moron plain and simple. They drill it into our brains to ensure you have a safe way home if you are partying the night before so much that it almost becomes routine. Secondly, I don't know if the other Cowboy was concious when he was placed in the car. Maybe he was, maybe he wasn't. If he was, then he can only blame himself for getting into that car. If he wasn't, he can blame the people who placed him in that car not caring about his safety........BUT, he also should have known how to drink like an adult and be wary of his decisions. I was thrown out of a club a number of years ago for vomitting right on the stairs. I was in rough shape so to speak. My friend who was 6'7" carried me outside for a waiting cab. I STILL knew I was getting into a cab even though I was in rough shape. I didn't fall asleep until I got home in my bed.
