    Default Gather.com: Drunk Jerry Jones Slams Parcells and Tebow

    Pretty funny stuff. And wild if he really believes what he said about Parcells.

    Somewhere, George Orwell is smiling.

    "There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized."
    That said ... not sure what pained me more ... the drunken Jones or the assholes who not only took advantage, but were more interested in pumping him about Tebow than about what he'd just intimated about Parcells.

    Unfortunately in society today you must remain on your toes. Anything you say or do can be recorded and posted for all the world to see.

    To be a public figure, regardless if in politics, own a sports franchise, or just a local business person, you have to be careful. We live in a world where everyone wants to know everything within minutes of it happening.

    OM, I don't blame the assholes that took advantage of the situation. While you or I wouldn't, there are plenty out there willing to seize the moment. Then post on TMZ, You Tube, or whatever site they can. Then it becomes news and has to be discussed.

    Privacy...when you become a public figure you give up this right in today's world. I don't like or agree with it, but chances are it will only get worse.

    Here is a link to how the Sports Director on my local ABC station viewed "reporting" this story. It is worth 2:18 of your life to check it out. Dale is a real character and when he gets rolling . . . well . . . just watch.

    That's just Jerry Jones on a roll at a party. As much as I hate the Cowboys I wouldn't take anything he said in that context seriously.

    And I agree, whoever was filming/recording this is a ... well I don't really approve of using the word 'douche' but I can't think of anything better at the moment.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.
