Ray Rice Listen Up, Greg Hardy ... Here's What I Can Teach You

11/19/2015 9:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Dallas Cowboys star and alleged domestic abuser Greg Hardy still has a lot to learn, and Ray Rice believes he's the right man to teach him.

Rice was on WFAN's "Boomer & Carton" Thursday morning and they asked if it bothered him that guys like Hardy and Adrian Peterson are getting 2nd chances while he's still waiting to get his shot.

Rice talked about using his off time to improve himself as a person, and suggested Hardy needs to do the same. Critics have said Hardy was unfairly cut a break after allegedly beating the hell out of his then girlfriend ... and Rice thinks he can counsel him -- "I would tell him everything that transpired in my life so he can understand the severity of domestic violence."

Give it a listen ... it's interesting. You'd think Rice would be angry about not getting a 2nd chance, but instead he sounded more like a sage adviser.

Michael Irvin Quit Bitching Cowboys Fans ... You NEED Tony Romo!

11/19/2015 8:46 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Irvin's got a message for Dallas Cowboys fans -- you should ALL be kissing the ground Tony Romo walks on ... and never complain about him again.

The Playmaker was at LAX when he went on a rant about Cowboys nation's need to realize how good they have it when Tony's on the field. He's returning to the field this weekend after suffering a broken collar bone early in the season, and Mike thinks he could get the 2-7 'boys back in the playoff hunt.

Check out his passionate plea -- it might make a Cowboys fan think twice about bringing up Tony's past failures.

But probably not.

NFL's Joseph Randle Video Of Infamous Underwear Theft ... Revealed

11/18/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Here it is ... the long awaited footage of ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle STEALING UNDERWEAR from a Texas department store ... and it's clear, he's no Danny Ocean. 

TMZ Sports obtained the surveillance footage showing Randle scouting out the men's department at Dillard's in Frisco, TX back in October 2014 ... before honing in on the Polo underwear display. 

You can see Randle do the over the shoulder look as he puts the undies in his bag. He then moves over to the cologne section and pulls the same move with a bottle of Gucci Guilty Black. 

BTW, dude took the TESTER BOTTLE!!! 

As Randle tries to casually slip out the door, security moves in and takes him into custody. He eventually pled guilty to misdemeanor theft and was sentenced to 6 months probation. 

Randle was cut by the Cowboys earlier this season and is currently looking for another NFL job so he can PAY for his cologne the next time he hits the mall.  

NFL's Greg Ellis Back Off Jerry Jones ... He's Right About Hardy

11/12/2015 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Good news for Jerry Jones ... there's at least one guy who supports how he's handling the Greg Hardy situation ... former Cowboys superstar Greg Ellis, who says it's Jones' job to put winning first. 

"I don't think Jerry made a mistake by putting him on the team. Jerry's job is to help the Cowboys win," Ellis told us in L.A. Wednesday night at a screening of his movie "Carter High."

"When [Jerry] sees a talent that can help his team, he goes after that talent."

We also asked if Jones should have reconsidered and FIRED Hardy after pictures surfaced last week showing the damage Hardy allegedly inflicted on his ex-GF in 2014 ... and once again, Ellis had Jerry's back.  

"[The pictures are] not 100% evidence of what really took place."

There's more ... Ellis also says he strongly believes Ray Rice deserves a 2nd chance in the NFL

It's interesting stuff ... check out the clip. 

Cowboys vs. Eagles Brotherly Brawl ... Busted For Assault

11/9/2015 2:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Three brothers took the Cowboys and Eagles game way too seriously, and ended up hospitalized and arrested for beating the crap out of each other in the stands at AT&T Stadium.

The video of their brawl went viral hours after the game -- most people thought they were just opposing fans, but TMZ Sports has learned they were blood. Arlington cops tell us they'll all be charged with different degrees of assault. Meet the bros:

- Jorge Castillo punched his brother, Ignacio ... and got arrested for misdemeanor assault with bodily injury.

- Jose Castillo was arrested for simple assault with provocative contact and failure to obey a police officer.

- Ignacio Castillo was not arrested, yet ... and only because he's laid up in a hospital. Cops say he'll be charged with felony assault on an officer for allegedly spitting blood on a cop trying to stop the fight.

Fun fact: Cops tell us there were 2 other fights that ended with arrests -- and both of those also involved relatives!



Dallas Cowboys Huge Sponsor Stands By Team ... Despite Greg Hardy Pics

11/7/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1106-greg-hardy-american-airlines-cowboys-GETTY-01Seems the Greg Hardy photos aren't scaring off one of the Dallas Cowboys' biggest sponsors -- with American Airlines vowing to stand by the team ... despite the controversy. 

Critics of the Cowboys are calling for sponsors to pull out -- hoping to put pressure on Dallas to fire Hardy after photos surfaced which appear to show the brutal injuries he inflicted on his ex-girlfriend. 

But American Airlines -- which has a partnership with the Cowboys until 2019 -- tells TMZ Sports they're not running for the hills. 

"American Airlines supports teams, not individual players," an AA spokesperson tells us.

"We have a huge employee and customer base in Dallas/Fort Worth and we partner with the Cowboys on several community projects throughout the year. As part of our initiatives to improve the communities we serve, we partner with several organizations that support and protect victims of domestic violence."

However, our sources tell us ... when Hardy was signed to the team, AA discussed the situation internally and expressed concerns about being connected to the embattled player. 

But in the end, AA decided it wasn't worth blowing up the deal with the Cowboys over a player who could be gone by this time next year.

breaking news

1106_jerry_jones_greg_hardy_gettyDallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says the team will NOT cut, suspend or even bench Greg Hardy after seeing the brutal pics of his ex-GF from his domestic violence case ... saying, "We have given Greg a second chance."

Jones says the team was obviously aware of the allegations against Hardy before they signed him earlier this year -- but had NOT seen the pictures of the alleged victim until Friday. 

"While we did not have access to the photos that became public today, we were and are aware of the serious nature of this incident."

Jones says, "We as an organization take this very seriously. We do not condone domestic violence. We entered into the agreement with Greg fully understanding that there would be scrutiny and criticism."

"We have given Greg a second chance. He is a member of our team and someone who is grateful for the opportunity he has been given to move forward with his life and his career.”

It's worth noting Hardy has made an immediate impact on the Cowboys defense ... emerging as one of the team's best players.

10/12/2015 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Irvin says T.O.'s initials have a brand new meaning ... Too Old ... 'cause he thinks the former NFL great is a little too long in the tooth to help the injury ravaged Dallas Cowboys.

Dallas Cowboys Highway Patrol Trooper In Trouble for Photo with RB

10/12/2015 2:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012-chris-mike-23-pulled-over-picture-INSTAGRAM-01The Texas Highway Patrol trooper who pulled over a Dallas Cowboys running back -- and then took a picture with him -- will face disciplinary actions for the incident ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The photo has been all over the Internet -- a trooper posing with backup running back Christine Michael in front of the player's pulled over Bentley ... causing many people to wonder, WTF?!

We spoke to a rep for the Texas Highway Patrol who tells us ... Michael's car was initially pulled over at noon on Sunday because it appeared the Bentley had illegal tint on the front windshield.

The trooper did not issue a citation -- but asked for a pic and then let Michael go on his way. 

Sergeant Lonny Haschel tells TMZ Sports ... "The trooper’s actions have been reviewed by DPS and are not consistent with department procedure."

"Corrective action, in the form of a procedural review, will be taken. In conversations with his chain of command, the trooper realized his error in judgement and was apologetic for the incident."

As for Michael -- he went on to play the Patriots later that day ... where he had 1 carry for 6 yards. 

NFL's Greg Hardy Fires Back at Haters In Rap Video ... With Gunfire & Strippers

10/10/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Embattled NFL star Greg Hardy -- the guy who was suspended for allegedly beating up his girlfriend -- is bragging that he'll never get "played" by a woman ever again. 

And he's making his point with the use of a stripper, gunfire sound effects and marijuana imagery in a rap video obtained by TMZ Sports

We've learned ... the Dallas Cowboys defensive end made the video for "I'm Just Me" in late 2014 -- after he was convicted of beating up his GF, throwing her on a bed covered in assault rifles and threatening to kill her. 

Hardy appealed the case -- and his conviction was overturned in 2015 after the alleged victim refused to testify against him in court. 

But during his time in NFL purgatory (he missed most of the 2014 season) Hardy hooked up with rapper Ja Alan to make a video in which Hardy declares to his critics, "What you see is what you get. I'm just me, I'm just real, and that's what I do."

Ja confirms the video was made in late 2014.

Right before Hardy spits his featured verse, a chorus of gunfire rings out. He then raps about women -- saying, "It'll be a cold day in hell before your girl tries to play me."

Interesting, considering Hardy's been under fire this week for several comments he made in which he objectified women (Gisele) and seemingly mocked his own court case by saying he plans to come out "guns blazing" when he returns to the field this week. 

If Hardy was planning to fix his image -- this video sure as hell ain't gonna help. 

We called Hardy for comment -- so far, no word back.

IRS to Dez Bryant You Dropped the Ball In '13 [Update]

10/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-dez-bryant-tmz-01update_graphic_red_bar3:23 PM PT -- Bryant's rep tells us ... Dez was notified about the lien in June 2015 and cut a check to the IRS on July 1, 2015 to clear it up.

Bryant's rep insists the lRS released the lien on September 16th, meaning Bryant is now officially off the hook. 

9:56 AM PT -- Bryant's rep, Ron Berkowitz, tells TMZ Sports the Cowboys receiver has handled the situation ... saying, "Clearly, this was an oversight. Once it was brought to Dez's attention, he paid it in full."update_grey_gray_barSeems Dez Bryant threw up the X to Uncle Sam back in 2013 ... failing to pay roughly $80,000 in federal income taxes ... this according to official records obtained by TMZ Sports. 

The IRS filed a federal tax lien against Bryant in Dallas ... claiming he never paid $79,274.75 in income tax for the money he made back in 2013. 

Seems like chump change for Bryant now thanks to his new $70 million deal ... but back in '13, Dez only raked in a measly $1.8 mil, according to 

We're guessing it's just an oversight on Bryant's part ... but you don't wanna play around when it comes to paying the tax man -- just ask Wesley Snipes
