Joseph Randle denies allegation of sports gambling

With former Cowboys running back Joseph Randle back in the news after an arrest on an outstanding warrant for speeding, the Dallas Morning News has added to the list of red flags involving Randle with a report that the Cowboys learned before cutting Randle in 2015 that he had been betting on sports.

“All of that became apparent to us right during the season,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said last week, via Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News. “Not before the season. It became real acute, a combination of things. Some issues . . . became more apparent.”

Jones said there was no evidence that Randle had been betting on football, and that there is no reason to believe Randle had done anything to compromise any Cowboys games.

Via Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Randle said via text message regarding the allegations, “No truth at all.”

The NFL told George that it is aware of no evidence that Randle had been involved in gambling. Cut by the Cowboys after starting six games in 2015 and thereafter suspended by the league, Randle remains a free agent in whom no one seems to be interested.

    Last week? You went a whole week without posting something that came out of Jerry Jones’ mouth?

    This is really the only thing that constitutes real cheating- is Dallas the new black sox?

    Not exactly true that no one is interested.

    I’d like to hire him to mow my lawn.

    If Dallas is uncomfortable with you for character reasons, you might as well just check yourself into the clink. Finding an NFL team to give you a contract at that point is just silly.

    ….meanwhile, he is to busy stealing underwear and cologne.

    Randle said via text message regarding allegations that he has an IQ above 10, “No truth at all.”

    Another genius move –

    In ’14 he was told to take the underdog and he’d come out smelling good.

    Instead, he wandered into Dillards and took the underwear and cologne.
    Should’ve known then something was up, when he chose Guilty Black from Gucci.

    Tony Romo put on a fantasy football event in Las Vegas…at a casino. As a Cowboys fan it has become apparent and real acute that the team I root for has the worst owner in sports.

    This guy is Titus Young the sequel unless someone can successfully intervene. Lets hope he gets the help he needs….

    Jerruh…Ray Rice is still available…sign him, trade for Johnny Football, and give Hardy a 100mm extension! Bad Boys for life!

    20 years since The Cowboys were in a Super Bowl and Jerry wonders why?

    You pick this tart and anoint him your starting RB, over the guy who was perfect for your system and lead the league in rushing.

    Now he covets Manziel as the future QB of your franchise.

    He is either running out of money with no way to replenish it, or he’s already broke. Let the suicide watch begin.

    Way to make a stand with your players Jerry!

    Ok, the guys’ proven that he’s a idiot but gambling on sports? C’mon, man! Who doesn’t do that to some extent?

    I hate the Cowboys so much that I bet a buddy at the beginning of every season that the Cowboys will lose. Straight up. Doesn’t matter who/where/when/injuries…nothing matters. I got whoever Dallas is playing. The prize: lunch. Harmless, but a bet nonetheless.

    Note: After 5 years (8-8, 8-8, 8-8, 12-4, 4 -12), we both broke even.

    Does that mean they are saying is that as far as transgressions go, he left a lot of meat on the bone?

  19. daysend564 says: Feb 2, 2016 11:09 AM

    Now they’ll never let him in the HOF

    I think he left a lot of meat on the bone.

    So much for the Vegas team…
