Primarily for my personal use, I am have compiled a Dez Bryant news archive so that I can remember everything. I am sure not all of this is his fault (or is even newsworthy), but wow he can keep the media busy.

Are you sure it's Dez that keeps the media busy as much as it's the media that looks for every little thing they can to sensationalize.

Can't we remember that he is still a 22 year old KID? If we dropped the level of scrutiny Dez has on any 22 year old, I guarantee you we'd have columns on immaturity and character risks every day.

Yes, he needs to grow up, but instead of throwing him under the bus every single time he does something slightly out of line (like wear his pants too low, god forbid), why don't you (I'm referring to the royal you, not Bob in specific) give him a chance?

Give any 22 year old kid 5 million dollars, fame and prestige and he'll do some stupid stuff. I bet even the bastions of the "holier than thou" commentary, JJT and Calvin Watkins, weren't choir boys as 22 year olds. Now THAT's some history I'd be interested in hearing about.

As for the media, it's quite clear they have their priorities in order:
Kevin Ogletree's brother was shot in the head in broad daylight in Queens (seemingly completely at random) and all that gets is a one-liner in the DMN. They didn't even offer their condolences.
