Manley revealed he learned about the cyst way back in 1986 when he was so lit up that he collapsed in a department store, and hit his head. How wrapped up in coke was Manley? He now says he is $12 million dollars in debt because of his addict lifestyle. That’s right folks, 12 with 6 zeros; spent on cocaine.
Manley tested positive for cocaine 4 times, and in 1991 was suspended from the NFL for life. He spent the last 2 years of his playing days in the Candian Football League.
Now, someone is going to bring it up if I don’t, Manley also admitted he was illiterate, even though he graduated from college. That’s right, he couldn’t read or write. As he told the story of his illiteracy he revealed that he could not even read a menu so he always ordered hamburgers and fries. Some may mock this, but I won’t. I respect Dexter Manley for having the courage to reveal this, and to actually learn how to read and write. It is however tragic that he had to learn to do these things in prison. He was sentenced to four years in prison and served two of the four years.
The bottom line is this, mocking Michael Irvin, while at the same time turning a blind eye to one of your own is pretty stupid. Perhaps they should look in a mirror. I would also like to point out that to my knowledge, no Mayor of Dallas, or Irving, or Arlington has ever been videotaped in a hotel room smoking crack with a hooker. Google Marion Barry if you don’t know what I am talking about. You can certainly ask if Laura Miller was on crack to let the Cowboys leave town, Marion Barry actually was.
Moving on to the homosexual nonsense they like to reference. The last time I checked “Brokeback Mountain” was a movie. In other words, fiction. For those who don’t know (apparently many Skins fans) that means “not real.” I haven’t seen it, and probably never will. It just doesn’t interest me at all. However, I did read previews of the movie.
First of all, it takes place in Wyoming, not Texas. Second of all, they are sheep herders. That’s right, sheep, not cows. The hat does not make you a cowboy any more than putting on a fireman’s helmet would make you a fireman.
Apparently in the nation’s capital people are not aware of the hatred between sheep herders and cattle ranchers. Have you ever heard of the Lincoln County Range Wars? Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, and all the actual History? All of that was about sheep versus cows. There’s a range war in Arizona that I wrote a documentary about that was even bigger and bloodier. It set Arizona statehood back thirty years it was so violent.
