Police say they received a complaint from numerous bystanders and patrons inside the bathroom complaining of a person who didn’t belong there. When asked how police recognized that the man who they received complaints about may have been a women, they pointed towards the Cowboys apparel Romo was wearing at the time. “It was a dead giveaway,” said officer Mike Roseman.

    Here's what the oddsmakers at had to say about setting the spread for the Carolina at Dallas contest, which opened at Cowboys -1 with a total of 47:From a pure power ratings perspective, Carolina should be favored in this matchup. But given that it's the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day with Romo back on the field, we had to open the home squad as short chalk. The country will be watching and the Cowboys are still America's team. We'll see how the action develops for the game over the course of the week, but it's already clear that while the...

    The Business Insider ^ | 11/3 | Scott Davis
    According to several reports, including ESPN, the Dallas Cowboys have released 23-year-old running back Joseph Randle. This is a fairly shocking development after Randle was demoted from starting running back last week, left the team's facilities unannounced, and was dealing with "personal matters." This also comes after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was concerned about Randle's mental well-being. Randle was expected to take over as the Cowboys starting running back this season in the wake of DeMarco Murray. Through five games, the results were unimpressive, and following a strained oblique and breakout performance from Darren McFadden, the Cowboys demoted...

    Dez Bryant kept going after Dallas cornerback Tyler Patmon in a heated training camp skirmish that didn't end until quarterback Tony Romo finally stepped in and calmed his star receiver. Bryant, 26, who has a history of sideline antics that include screaming at coaches and teammates, appeared to take a swing at Patmon after the two tangled during a play in 11-on-11 work late in practice Sunday. The incident started when Patmon jarred Bryant's helmet loose during a play and Bryant responded by yanking off Patmon's helmet. Patmon, 24, threw a punch and backed away, and Bryant came back with...

Cruz once was a clerk for the U.S. Supreme Court, and told the story about Thomas Tuesday night on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File." In his book, "A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America," GOP presidential hopeful Cruz tells of a young teenage boy who had gotten a chance to visit the court's offices.

Following a 4th quarter interception ruling, giving Green Bay the ball and ultimately the victory, Bryant left the bench and headed back to the locker room – according to Bryant, to cry. “I was very emotional. I cried when I got into the locker room.” Bryant said...

    The Dallas Cowboys needed quarterback Tony Romo to come up big against the Washington Redskins on Sunday night. Instead, he threw three interceptions, including a crucial fourth-quarter pick that contributed to the Cowboys' season-ending loss. After the latest down moment in Romo's inconsistent career, I think it's time for Dallas to move on; it's time for the Cowboys to cut ties with Romo. Romo's one of those guys who seems to do really well when it doesn't count, but when it counts, he doesn't get the job done. It's not because he's not smart; it's not because he's not athletic;...

Cutler threw three touchdown passes and Romo wasn't able to respond, lifting the Chicago Bears to a 27-20 victory Sunday.

Cowboys loyalists will remember the 1993 season starting 0-2 and ending with a Super Bowl championship, but that club got...

The implosion will be sponsored by Kraft Macaroni & Cheese oddly enough, because nothing says buy macaroni & cheese like an implosion. That aside lets take a look at the Texas Stadium history and honor the longtime home of the Dallas Cowboys. Now that we have the boring statistics out of the way lets take a look...

    You remember Herschel Walker don't you? 1982 Heisman Trophy winner and running back for the Dallas Cowboys who loved Dallas so much he almost quit playing professional football when Dallas wanted to trade him? You rarely see that kind of devotion to a team any more. Now Herschel has a new sport - Mixed Martial Arts fighting. He made his professional MMA debut Saturday January 30th in Sunrise, Florida. Even though Herschel Walker is known for his incredible athleticism on the football field ... he was not expected to do well because of his age. Herschel Walker turns 48 on...

    What a horrible Sunday! A wretched, horrible, day of loss, as I watched my two teams, the Dallas Cowboys and the San Diego Chargers, sadly, tragically, lose to their opponents on what was sure to be a momentous day of double victory! Oh the day started off okay - with an endless supply of hope and promise because ... both made it into the NFC and AFC playoffs respectively... Back home in Texas, football games start in the afternoon - but here on the California coast, I discovered the Dallas Cowboys game was going to start at 10 a.m. ......
  • Texans 2009 Season Wrap Up

    First of all, I’m not as ecstatic about a 9-7 record as most people. Where are all those people (including area journalists) who were saying that this team was going to go 11-5 or possibly 12-4 this season? Anyone with a modicum of football intelligence is keenly aware that the Texans were fortunate to play one of the softest schedules in the NFL this season. An opening day loss to rookie QB Mark Sanchez and the Jets got the season off to an ominous start, but to their credit, the Texans did rise to the occasion and feasted on the...

    Did the Minnesota Vikings run up the score on the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's NFC divisional playoff? Keith Brooking(notes) thinks so. A late Brett Favre(notes) touchdown pass infuriated the Dallas linebacker, who charged over to the Vikings' sideline to voice his displeasure. And in his postgame press conference he didn't back down. The Vikings had held a comfortable 27-3 lead since the early part of the fourth quarter. Dallas looked completely deflated after going down 24 points and the team's subsequent play did nothing to dispel that notion. On the Cowboys' next two possessions the team went four-and-out, gaining a...
