Remember how when you were little your parents would keep you from hanging out with certain kids in the neighborhood? Back then you didn’t understand why because, well, you were 6 and guzzling bottles of glue whenever no one was watching, but the reasoning your parents had was that you were a stupid little kid who didn’t know the difference between “quality people” and “hell no my child isn’t hanging out with that fucker.” Maybe it didn’t happen to you, but it happened to me and I’m glad for it. Those kids grew up go exactly nowhere with their lives and I’m pretty sure one sells meth…or at least smokes it. Or is a failure. Why don’t we just say he’s all 3 and call it a day.
The point is that you should choose your friends wisely, because if you associate yourself with shit people it can potentially come back to bite you in the ass years later.
This is exactly what’s happening with Dez Bryant.
If the rumors that’ve been floating through town are true, then Bryant’s former friends are shopping around a tape that contains footage of Dez doing…something. But it’s a very bad something! A very bad Ray Rice Walmart sort of something…or something. And while we don’t know what the video is, we at least know that it for sure does exist since ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter confirmed its existence on the Carmen and Jurko Show on ESPN 100.
Carmen and Jurko: What’s going on with Dez Bryant?
Adam Schefter: That’s a very interesting question. I’ll just say this – check back with me on that one.
Carmen and Jurko: Have you heard about this video? Do you know what’s on it?
Carmen and Jurko: Have you seen it?
Schefter: I have not seen it.
Carmen and Jurko: Is he doing something criminal? Can you talk about it?
Schefter: I’ll say this: I’ve been working on this since September.
Carmen and Jurko: Is it criminal?
Schefter: Like I said I’ve been working on it since September. There’s a lot involved.
Carmen and Jurko: Is this going to come out?
Schefter: Don’t know. Don’t know yet.
Carmen and Jurko: Okay. Wow. I have never heard about this until the weekend and now it’s all over the internet
Schefter: It’s taken up a lot of my time this season I’ll say that.
Carmen and Jurko: And you did it in a very clandestine way it sounds like. Did you feel like you had to?
Schefter: Well listen, whatever we’ve been working on is not ready and maybe it never will be. Who knows? You’ve got to be very careful on these things. People can talk about videos, they can talk about this they can talk about that. The fact of the matter is, it doesn’t mean anything and it’s really not fair to him right now until you have all your facts in line. Which we spent a long time trying to do.
The video is said to be “five times worse than the Ray Rice video” and could potentially end Bryant’s career. And as I’m sure you already guessed, Twitter is ON THE CASE and speculating what exactly the video shows:
Reportedly, Dez Bryant will be released from the Cowboys either today or Tomorrow . . . Heard he Put Hands on a Woman on VIDEO. RIP.

At this point, I’m expecting a Macho Man-off-the-top-rope-with-the-bell-vs Ricky Steamboat type video w/the build up of this Dez Bryant tape

Good morning. Rumors swirling of a Dez Bryant video to be released that will make the Ray Rice video look like a Saturday morning cartoon.

If Dez Bryant got a video out 5x worse than the Ray Rice video then they must be trying to pin the murder of a white woman on him.

I hope this mysterious Dez Bryant video is just him dropping a deuce on the star at midfield.

Only time will tell us what the video is…if it ever gets released, of course.
