Ex-Cowboy recalls ordering $1,300 shots on Dez Bryant’s tab

Dallas Cowboys v Arizona Cardinals Getty Images

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant said this week that he was furious when, as a rookie, veteran players stuck him with a $55,000 dinner tab. That raises a question: How do you spend $55,000 on one dinner?

Very easily, according to former Cowboys receiver Jesse Holley, who was one of the players who ran up that tab on Bryant. Holley told 105.3 The Fan that he and other players ordered liquor that ran $1,300 a shot. Seriously, $1,300 for one shot of liquor.

“There’s one called the Louis XIII Rare Cask. They only have about 50 bottles in the world. Two of them were in Texas. One of them is in Houston and the other one was at Pappas Bros. For one shot, it was $1,300 dollars. It’s Cognac. They brought it out in this case where they had to push a button and it opened up illuminating. They had to serve it in white gloves,” Holley said, via the Dallas Morning News.

Holley left before the bill came, but he said his understanding was that it was split among all the rookies, not just footed by Bryant. That’s not how Bryant remembers it; Bryant said this week that “I paid $55,000 for a dinner, and it struck me the wrong way.”

But while Bryant wasn’t happy, it sounds like Holley enjoyed himself.

“I’m not a drinker, but when they said it was $1,300 a shot, I said I’m not missing this opportunity to say I drank something that cost $1,300. It was really, really, really smooth and you don’t need much of it to hit you,” Holley said.

Holley also said players were ordering $90 steaks, $120 lobsters, and expensive champagne that they proceeded to pour in the flower pots at the restaurant. The veteran players apparently thought they were being funny. Bryant had every right to be furious.

    That place was probably where his crying Began. O poor Dez…

  2. ErinAndrewsStopCallingMe says: Jun 7, 2014 4:43 PM

    Pouring champagne in the flower pots…it’s no wonder I hope the majority of these losers go bankrupt in the future.

  3. rectumdamnnearkilledem says: Jun 7, 2014 4:44 PM

    I would much rather pay $55,000 for a dinner than endure some of the other “traditions” for rookies. Getting forced to take a bad hair cut or putting on a dress or wig and sing some crazy song come to mind. Paying for steak, lobster, and Cognac would win every time in my book.

  4. brandonj21 says: Jun 7, 2014 4:45 PM

    Its one thing to “EAT” or “DRINK” expensive things but to waste it by pouring in flower pots is totally out of line. Dez should have just paid for his meal and burned off …. with a smile .

  5. texansfalcons says: Jun 7, 2014 4:47 PM

    How wasteful.

  6. indymarc says: Jun 7, 2014 4:48 PM

    Many of these players came from humble environments. You would think they would respect money and how hard it is to earn. Apparently not. No wonder many file bankruptcy a few years after being cut.

  7. mt10425 says: Jun 7, 2014 4:48 PM

    These are the type of stories that keep me from ever supporting after-career payments of any kind for NFL players.

  8. Patskrieg dot com says: Jun 7, 2014 4:49 PM

    I don’t drink. I never have. But if I had a chance to take a $1300 shot on Dez Bryant’s tab (knowing he’ll be pissed about it for life) I’d give it some serious consideration.

  9. jimthebuilder27 says: Jun 7, 2014 4:50 PM

    When is Roger Goodell and the NFLPA going to step in and end this practice?

  10. taylorgangtrippymane says: Jun 7, 2014 4:51 PM

    I think the whole “rookie pays for dinner” thing is stupid. You’re all grown men who most likely make more money than the rookie. Buy your own dawn dinner and shots. I would feel like an awful person leaving anyone with a 55k tab.

  11. bobzilla1001 says: Jun 7, 2014 4:51 PM

    The life of an NFL player:
    Too young.
    Too dumb.
    Too rich.
    And too much free time.
    Whoever decided to price the average fan out of the league by signing players to multimillion-dollar contracts, that person needs to be found and tortured.
    How I miss the days when NFL players had second jobs, preparing for their “life’s work” after football.

  12. iceicebaby32 says: Jun 7, 2014 4:52 PM

    He who laughs last, laughs longest. Dez is the only player from that party on the brink of a mega deal.

  13. dalcow4 says: Jun 7, 2014 4:52 PM

    “Holley left before the bill came”

    [spies waiter approaching] *urp* “Okay boys, I am outta here. See you at practice.”

  14. curtismyfavoritemartin says: Jun 7, 2014 4:52 PM

    Weird that Holley thought the bill was split amongst all the rookies even though he left before it came considering that he had yet to play in an NFL regular season game by that point.

  15. electricboogalo says: Jun 7, 2014 4:55 PM

    Just negotiate an extra 55k in your next signing bonus so this will go away.

  19. 88ibis says: Jun 7, 2014 5:05 PM

    You know, everyone orders the $120 lobster, nice wine plus some fancy desert, throw in a tip and you’re at $250 a head. Invite the practice squad and you’re at $15,000. Still absurd, but I get it. $1,300 shots and killing innocent plants with booze is just being a jerk on purpose.

  20. don2074978 says: Jun 7, 2014 5:06 PM

    $90 steaks, $120 lobsters That is one obscene price for food. especially since lobstermen in the last year have seen prices as low as 1.35/LB.

  21. Goodell's Green Glasses says: Jun 7, 2014 5:08 PM

    That’s just disgusting.

  22. SparkyGump says: Jun 7, 2014 5:09 PM

    Lose the need to have a babysitter, Dez, and you’ll get start getting endorsement deals that will make that dinner bill chump change.

    Clowney better hope the Texans veteran players don’t figure out where in Houston that second bottle is.

  27. ernwop64 says: Jun 7, 2014 5:12 PM

    They had no respect for Dez and had a chance to stick it to a teammate that they were jealous of .A bad collection of people that would do this to a teammate.This is why they are what they are.No problem making the rooks foot the bill but take the chance to show grace to a teammate.

  28. philvil41 says: Jun 7, 2014 5:13 PM

    Ignorant losers.

  29. billybone says: Jun 7, 2014 5:16 PM

    Curious if the following year Dez had his steak and lobster dinner paid for by a rookie or if he tried to break the chain of madness. It’s wrong, but if he took part in the hazing since he endured this treatment I have no pity for the man.

  30. 49erfan44 says: Jun 7, 2014 5:20 PM

    @cheapglazers its amazing how fast prices go up after a few rappers mention it in their lyrics.

  32. mpry says: Jun 7, 2014 5:21 PM

    And according to the “unsaid” insinuation from this article….we are supposed to feel sorry for rookie “millionaire” hazing?

    Too bad!! Does anyone think this financially ruins anyone?

  33. 6ball says: Jun 7, 2014 5:22 PM

    I would be interested in knowing the Patriots policy regarding such antics. Bill Belichick is always preaching team building. These acts are anything but.

    $1300 a shot? Better make it a double

  35. phillycannon says: Jun 7, 2014 5:25 PM

    people are killing me being money managers. If a millionaire is buying you ANYTHING, your going to want the most expensive item that you can get. matter of fact if anyone is buying you anything, your going to take FULL ADVATANGE of when they are paying for it.

    I bet if you if the Ceo of your job say order what you want….what are you going to do? Get the most expensive meal you can on their dime.

    When your in that tax bracket you can do whatever you want. Stop thinking these players are middle class.

    Two takeaways from this article:

    1. Hawkins would have been the better pick on fourth and long.
    2. You would think a guy who earned his spot on a reality show would be more appreciative of his chance than to be a part of this kind of thing.

  40. thegreatgabbert says: Jun 7, 2014 5:40 PM

    Worst part of the experience for Dez was when he found out there are still 50 bottles of Louis XIII Rare Cask left in the world.

  41. bassplucker says: Jun 7, 2014 5:40 PM

    Meanwhile, a few days ago, the entire Bears rookie class spent a day in Washington IL along with the team’s top brass, doing tornado cleanup. Just sayin.

  42. newguy925 says: Jun 7, 2014 5:41 PM

  44. bucsorbust says: Jun 7, 2014 5:45 PM

    Most of us can’t even fathom that kind of tab; but most of us also can’t comprehend the kind of money these guys make while we pay $200 for ticket on a nominal salary. Sorry Boys, no sympathy from this man. Bartender, I’ll have what he’s having.

  45. bucsorbust says: Jun 7, 2014 5:50 PM

    NFL players are out of control in their spending. Bucs fan here, and I love showing up at the time the players arrive to their own parking lot and head to the locker room–meeting/greeting fans as they walk in. I’ve seen it all. Jaguars with fire painted on them. Triple jacked up F150s. Black Caddy Escalades with low profile tires and oversized pink rims. But these guys don’t last. It’s the QB, P, or LB who shows up in a Ford Taurus with a baby-carrier in the backseat that I like.

  46. onbucky96 says: Jun 7, 2014 5:58 PM

    Let’s name names. Roy Williams was most responsible. Since Dez wouldn’t carry his pads, Williams and his goons/teammates decided to make Dez pay. And yet Mike Golic had no problem w/it.

    I agree it’s bad… check out the menu prices at Ruth’s Chris steak house though…

    Heck, for that matter, check out the menu prices at Jerry Jones world, the Cowboys Stadium…

    At AT&T Stadium,

    It costs $75 to park the family car… besides being the MOST in the league, it’s a full $30 MORE than the next highest place…

    They sell their sodas for $6 which is most in the league for soda at a stadium.

    I don’t know how much more the pizza’s cost there but when the stadium opened in 2009, at 20 pizza cost $60.

    I imagine it costs more now. Some dough, some cheese, some tomato sauce and maybe a few pepperoni’s for $60 plus bucks (well, 60 in 2009 at least).

    The Cowboys have the 2nd highest fan experience cost in the league. It’s costs on average, $613.80 for a family of 4 to attend a game there…

    Guess the $90 steak isn’t so bad. A family of 4 could eat dinner there, all getting steaks and come out spending less money than attending a Cowboys game…

  48. eaglesfan290 says: Jun 7, 2014 6:10 PM

    I hate Dez, but I do feel bad for him on this one!

    That said it’s very hard to feel bad for players at lockout time when this is how they spend money.

  52. paulage77 says: Jun 7, 2014 6:30 PM

    I am not a big fan of the Cowboys or Dez Bryant, but have more respect for him for speaking out about the dinner. There is nothing wrong with having an extravagant meal with rare boozes. It’s one of life’s great pleasures for those who understand and can appreciate that sort of thing. But nice champagne in the flowers is evil and wasteful. I’m sure instead of running up Dez’s tab one of the morons could have spent equivalent money and fed some starving poor child for weeks.

    It’s not really that big of a joke for him to remember when players had second jobs. It really wasn’t that long ago that players were pulling down 5-figure salaries.

    The minimum salary in 1970 was $10,000, which is less than 30% of the average American male salary ($37,000) at that time.

  64. TheWizard says: Jun 7, 2014 7:32 PM

    All this rookie abuse is 1950′s thinking that somehow has managed to stick around way too long.

    Putting a stop to this would have real meaning, unlike the Redskins name issue.

    I was in the US Navy for many years and we had a similar practice. Obviously not on this scale, but the new guys to the division had to bring breakfast for the older guys. There were 7 of us sent to the division on the same day, so we rotated. Not bringing breakfast on your day was tantamount to dereliction of duty. It wasn’t meant to be a huge burden, but rather a team- building exercise. Spending the $20 or so every week to ensure my MMC and LPO didn’t have me on their “list” was a small price to pay. When new guys came in I thoroughly enjoyed having my breakfast brought to me as well. It’s probably hard to understand if you’ve never been on a team like that, one where you see your teammates more than your own family.

  67. campcouch says: Jun 7, 2014 7:54 PM

    we know that when a dude signs a contract,that contract isn’t worth squat. the only thing he gets is guaranteed portions. and that’s a signing bonus for most rookies. it’s not just transferred to you,it’s paid in installments. It doesn’t matter if he got one or twelve million,that’s still a huge chunk of cash for food. that’s like some clowns sticking an average person with a $500 dinner tab. you could probably afford it on your card,but do you really want that expense? he may be a knucklehead,but it doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to hang on to his money.

  68. sidepull says: Jun 7, 2014 7:55 PM

    What a bunch of idiots. Waste your money, waste other peoples money, and then have nothing left to show in ten years after you are retired from the league. I hope dipstick still remembers how much he valued that shot while he was wishing he had $1300.oo to pay some bills.

    Thank you for the information, it’s appreciated.

    I’d be curious to know what percentage of that amount is PROFIT…

    This is like so many other high end things… nowhere near worth what it costs but since there are folks out there with more money than they know what to do with, it sells…

    Have heard of backpacks that sell for $40 PLUS thousand dollars too…

    This nonsense goes on in Every Lockerroom. It is part of the long standing traditions for decades. Unfortunately, the Dolphins Bullying Scam blew it all out of proportion and now this is frowned upon. It is excessive and wrong on many levels, but these are rich people and the reason why $90 Steaks exist is because their is a market for it. @6ball you drink too much Patriots Kool-Aid. Yeah, the Patriots player don’t do this Rookie hazing? Really, and you know this how? Oh thats right they just commit Murders!

    I’m not saying it’s cool to stick someone with that kinda of bill, but.. Rookies in that day were making more money than proven veteran leaders on teams. It’s not like he couldn’t afford it. 55k is a drop in the bucket when 10s of millions in contracts are being considered.

  76. kappy32 says: Jun 7, 2014 9:25 PM

    It will be 5 years this July 2 since the last time I had a drink. However, if someone was buying me a shot that cost $1,300, I would seriously consider restarting my sobriety clock for that.

  77. lowriderfxr says: Jun 7, 2014 10:15 PM

    Why not talk about the time Dez bought everyone in line at Best Buy a new x box or play station or whatever it was. Sounds like a nice way to give back for some kids who never could have afforded it. Even the so called negative things Dez does is because he refuses to accept losing. Sounds like another 88 who was a huge part of the Cowboys success in the 90s. He may still have some growing up to do but he’s a stud and one of the few bright spots on the Cowboys roster.

  78. taintedsaints2009 says: Jun 7, 2014 10:33 PM

    Dez has far more control than I do because I would have blown a gasket and stormed out of that place.

  79. nomoreseasontix says: Jun 7, 2014 10:42 PM

    The fact that there’s a $1300 shot tells me that your average, high-dollar club patron is an idiot.

    No wonder NFL players roll like that and are broke soon after retiring…..

    I’ll bet Warren Buffet never bought a $1300 shot. And he could afford all of them….

  80. metalhead65 says: Jun 7, 2014 11:15 PM

    oh cry me a river. this was not some 6th. round draft pick who was not going to make the team. he got how many millions to sign his name on the contract? so he bought 1 less Bentley or whatever expensive car he wasted his money on so what? these guys are not little kids getting picked on by bullies at school. they are grown men who can stand up for themselves if they choose. he knew what was going to happen so he should not have gone with them in the first place if he did not want to pay.

    And the NFL will preach financial responsibility on one side of its mouth, and turn a blind eye to this.
    Goodell should address this.

    Oh, the worship of false idols. Men without the wisdom of God, being used by Billionaires.

    WTF charges $120 for lobster? LOL

    My guess is Dez was drunk and said he’d cover the bill.

    In 20yrs they will all be bankrupt and physically broken, because they are stupid and don’t know how to invest money.

    What this story forgets to mention is that every year since, Dez has been making some rookie foot the bill for HIS dinner. You know, because that’s what rookies have to do.

    I thought that was supposed to his penitence after all the bad training camp PR. He bought a big meal (stupidly expensive, but still) for the team, the media heard about it, people got off his case.

    This fool ought to be ashamed that he’s telling this story so gleefully. How dumb can you be?

    This is the sort of professionalism, maturity, and mutual respect we’ve come to expect from professional athletes in this country. The sad thing is that none of it is surprising.

    Next time treat them to GOLDEN CORAL.

    “Next time treat them to GOLDEN CORAL.”

    Yep.

    I’d be embarrassed to admit to this.

    And to anyone who doesn’t think this is a big deal, a $55,000 dinner is a big deal is because it sets a very dangerous precedent. Instead of learning to be responsible with their money from the outset they are being taught to throw their money around like they’re business cards or cigars right after their wife just had a baby. And as a member of the middle class I find it totally offensive that anyone would squander money like that. Use at least a little bit of your new-found wealth to help those less fortunate. We already know that the people who own and run the NFL couldn’t care less about anyone other than themselves, it would be nice if that’s not true of the players as well.

    Hope they took care of the servers. Some athletes are great tippers, some are pretty crummy. There’s a reason my server friends here in Portland referred to “No Tippin Pippen.”

    LOL at Cowboys

    very popular team from what I hear though

  101. demskinsbaby says: Jun 9, 2014 11:34 AM

    It nice to know that the Cowboys have lost their class… not one bit. *smh ..#patheticteam

  102. jayovalentine says: Jun 12, 2014 2:39 AM

    That’s why they will be the joke of the NFL this year

  103. 88xfactor says: Jun 28, 2014 10:22 AM

    I think Dez handle that with class. He could have paid only his bill an walked out. But you would have never heard the end of it. So I know it pis-ed him off, but pay it, tip well and move on. Surely some people have’nt. I mean this crap happen 4yrs. Ago.
