Jeff Pearlman’s new book, “Boys Will Be Boys,” has revealed some truly horrifying, scary stories about the Dallas Cowboys of the 1990s.
The Cowboys trained here in Austin, back then, and fans would hear rumors of drugs or lurid sex or violence (like Michael Irvin’s stabbing of Everett McIver), but almost nothing ever made it to the newspapers or TV sports programs.
Now, it’s NOT as if the Dallas Cowboys played in some backwater town with no media. There were countless reporters around the Cowboys 24/7. And yet, practically NONE of the stories Jeff Pearlman is now revealing ever saw print.
How can things like this go on in plain sight for so long without ANYONE writing about it? Were Dallas reporters lazy? Cowardly? Too friendly with the players? How could any reporter just SIT on such explosive material for so many years?
