Dez Bryant showed the whole world once again how big of a “man” he is. Yes, I am using the word “man” very loosely. If you were hanging on to the hopes that there was good in Bryant or at some time he would grow the hell up, sadly this is something you may never get to witness.
The Dallas Cowboy‘s most notorious diva has once again caused the spotlight to be shinning bright on himself. And of course, it was not good for the diva or the Cowboys for that much.
The off-season started off with Bryant showing his immaturity by threatening to act like a child on a playground and sit out if he did not get what he wanted. After many meetings ending with him stomping out like a diva, the Cowboys caved in and gave Bryant the over priced contract extension that Bryant had his pink panties all twisted over. And while most of the NFL was relieved that this over dramatic contract negotiation was over and we could focus on more important things (anything other than Bryant), Bryant was only getting started.
Bryant made headlines again when he decided he was not worth the money, nor knew how to act like a leader or a franchise player when he got in a fight with a fellow teammate. Way to show the Cowboys, the NFL and the fans that you are worth every penny of that contract there Dez, smh (yes, all I can do is just shake my head).
This helped prompt the NFL to release a statement about the divas of the league and fighting. Nothing like giving the NFL more power, but hell, the players bring this on themselves. A league of what is supposed to be professionals, athletes and adults, but instead it looks like a playground of elementary school with nothing but misfits. Did this statement by the NFL help the players grow up and act like adults, hell no.
On Tuesday Dez Bryant was back to his divas mind set. Getting involved with yet another fight, this time with the St. Louis Rams. Things got out of hand really quick at the Dallas Cowboys and St. Louis Rams combined practice. And as you can see, it did not take much for Bryant to show his true side once again.
In the scuffle, Bryant got punched and to send the diva label into trending mode, he lost an earring. Probably the most manly thing we could hear about a fighting football player, smh. I guess if you have the diva label, you wear it and wear it proud. Did anyone see the alleged punch you ask? Why as a matter of fact, not only did someone see it, somebody got it on video. I have gotten my hands on this beautiful video and wanted to make sure my readers had the opportunity to see the highlight of this fight.

For those that are concerned for Dez Bryant and wanted to know, yes, he got his earring back. Heaven forbid there be another reason for the NFL’s biggest diva to throw yet another fit, lets at least get to the regular season before he starts back in. Please?!?!
Either way, for now, he has gotten exactly what he is wanting…..the spotlight on the biggest stage. It’s just ashyame it has been for ALL the wrong reasons.
