    The Dallas Cowboys could put into place a mandate requiring that players use electronic devices that would immobilize their cars if intoxicated, according to Cowboys consultant Calvin Hill.

    Since Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent was arrested following a car crash that killed linebacker Jerry Brown Jr., Calvin Hill has been pondering ways to make the team's players more safe.

    Hill, a consultant for the Cowboys with the role of administering off-the-field support programs, put forth one idea that could stop future drunk-driving incidents from occurring. He threw out the idea of mandating that Cowboys players would have to use electronic devices inside of their cars which would immobilize the vehicles if the driver was impaired.

    Lets see what the ACLU says to that! And players wont be comming to play for Jerry now no matter he gives you a billion dollars they still wont play for Jerry Jones.

    If i owned my favorite team which is the Baltimore Ravens. Id make a policy all cars searched by security before entering the complex and stadium. So if player has a gun or booze they must leave them at with security..and pick them up at security office. And when player enters complex or stadium he must go though a security detector like used at Airports

    Why act as a babysitter? Warn all new recruits and put it into their contracts that you have a zero tolerance policy. These men should be role models. If they don't live up to their end of the bargain then they are automatically out and lose any future compensation.

    A couple of years ago I saw a report on celebrities and how many kids they had out of wedlock. Football players were the worst. One had 11 kids with 8 different baby mamas.
