Deion Sanders doesn’t necessarily think the Cowboys’ extravagant and much publicized $55,000 team dinner was a good idea, saying that “ignorance comes into play here”--but he thinks Dez Bryant may be well-served by the implied lesson. Just what was the lesson, in running up the dinner tab to such a staggering number?
“The lesson is really 'don't disrespect us in camp like you did, because we're going to get you one way or another," Sanders said, per the Dallas Morning News. "'If you hadn't disrespected us the way that you did, it would have never had to come to this.'
“So he just learned a valuable monetary lesson, I think that was the case.”
Sanders was then asked what he would have said had he been charged with footing a $50,000 meal.
“Said?” Sanders shot back. “I wouldn't have stayed to say anything. I would have been calling them from my car going down the toll way, "You're not going to get me for this one.”
