Just read this in a FF chat on CBSSports.com

This is incredible:

Dez Bryant, who refused to carry Roy Williams' pads in training camp, paid dearly. On Monday night at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Bryant took the offensive players out, then Williams invited the defensive players and when the night was over the bill came: $54,896. Wow.


ROFL

That's fucking awesome.

53 players on an active roster.... add 8 practice squad guys... hell, throw in a few coaches even..... and they all bring the wives/girlfriends.... figure 130 people being overly generous....that's $422.28 per person... what the hell kind of meal and how many drinks does this place have to sell to get $422 per person

There is no way 130 people were in that party.

Probably most of the money was spent on drinks.

$500 a person? That's not that unusual depending on the place.

As someone who has shared a table at a top-notch steakhouse with several NFL linemen, I'll tell you it's not that hard.

The wife and I got invited to dinner at Annie Gunn's here in STL by some friends once. Told there would be some interesting people there, so we went.

Ended up having dinner with Dan Dierdorf and a few linemen from the Rams.

Those motherfuckers can EAT.

One of the DL, which will remain nameless, ordered FOUR 12-ounce filets, 3 baked potatoes, vegetables and a $1000 bottle of wine.

For himself.

Are you responding to me?

If so, more.

$50 per filet and $7-$10 per side.

If he tipped 20%, you're looking at what, $1750?


The other guys ate just as much, but didn't go nuts on the wine.

No.

I'll tell you this, though:

One of the nicest guys I've EVER met.

But the game has left him in BAD shape. It's painful to watch him walk, and his hands look like they've been through a meat grinder.

Right before I shook his hand, I remembered a story my dad told me about meeting Conrad Dobler.

So he meets Dobler, who was a BAMF, and Dad's an old-fashioned guy - look a guy in the eye and give a firm handshake.

Dobler about comes out of his shoes.

He tells my Dad - "Quickest way to put an ex-NFL lineman on his knees?"

"Give him a firm handshake."

These guys hands are just beat to shit.

Needless to say I took it easy on DD, and we talked about Dobler's story later.

Good dude.

Yeah, it wouldn't have been hard for that many guys - with a shit-ton of money - to do $54k worth of damage at that place. Especially when they are teaching the rook a lesson.

Christ, he should be lucky that someone like DeMarcus Ware didn't order that 1945 Rothchild for $15k.

On a $54,896 check I would probably tip 20%, so I guess I'd leave roughly 11K. But you know what they say about black folks and tipping. The wait staff would be really pissed if they got stiffed on a 50K table. I'll just assume a 15% gratuity was included in the bill.

The menu seems reasonable. Not much different than the Hereford House. I took my wife and FiL and his GF there a few weeks ago and paid almost $1000for dinner and drinks. 5-6 hundred in wine makes a big difference. Oh, and only 3 of us were drinking. :D

DaneMcCloud
09-28-2010, 08:54 PM
As for the tip guys, it's standard in most restaurants that if they're serving 10 or more, the tip is automatically 18% or more.

I'm guessing it was least 10k for the tip.

If I'm anyone on the Cowboys, I wonder who the fuck Roy Williams is that he's suddenly big man on campus.

If I'm anyone, I ask why it's funny to hit somebody in the pocketbook.

Tying someone to the goalposts is one thing. Teaching a guy a $52,000 lesson is another.

If I"m Wade Phillips, I'd be pissed. If I'm Roy Williams, I'd worry more about living up to his potential than I would be making sure a rookie gets his.

At the end of the day, the team is 1-2 and they were supposed to be Super Bowl contenders.

The worst thing about this is it shows the cultural problem with these current players. They spend ridiculous amounts of money on stupid and unnecessary shit and then they are broke two years after they retire.

On top of that, guys like the aforementioned Dobler, who never made any money during his NFL career, are so laid out financially that Phil Mickelson ended up secretly paying for his daughter's college.
