Stephen A. Smith on Cowboys’ Drug Problems: ‘An Embarrassment Of The Highest Order’

cowboys-e1469646685371What is going on with the Dallas Cowboys? Defensive end Randy Gregory‘s drug suspension (his second of the offseason) is the latest in a series of drug bans levied by the NFL against the team — following the suspensions of fellow defensive players Rolando McClain and Demarcus Lawrence.

On First Take this morning, Stephen A. Smith took the opportunity to tee off on the Boys.

“This is just an embarrassment of the highest order,” Smith said. “And I’m wondering when the NFL is going to intervene.”

Smith went on to declare that the only reason the NFL hasn’t gotten involved because of their powerful owner, Jerry Jones:

Most governing bodies would do something if they had serial perpetrators, serial offenders of multitudes of violations. They would say “We ain’t leaving it up to you anymore. You’re sullying our brand. We need to do something about it.”

Now obviously, that’s fool’s gold. That’s not going to happen. Because Jerry Jones is not only Jerry Jones, but he’s got a lot of money, and he’s one of the most powerful owners in the entire sports world.
