7 injured, 1 critically, in Dallas Cowboys practice arena collapse
<snip>

"An air-supported canopy over the Dallas Cowboys' practice field collapsed during a heavy thunderstorm Saturday afternoon, leaving one person critically injured and six others hurt, firefighters said.

As many as 80 people may have been inside the facility when it was blown down shortly before 3:30 p.m. (4:30 p.m. ET), said Mike Adams, a dispatcher for the Irving, Texas, fire department. Rescuers were continuing to comb through the wreckage beneath the fallen canopy, but, "Everyone as far as we know is accounted for," Adams said.

Video from CNN affiliate WFAA showed the canopy caving in during a heavy storm, sending players, coaches and a handful of reporters and photographers scrambling to escape.

WFAA-TV photojournalist Arnold Payne, who was on the sidelines of the indoor practice field when the collapse occurred, said the wind "just started shaking the sides of this big huge plastic practice tent."

"The lights started swinging from the ceiling, and just like that ? the thing just started collapsing," Payne said. "They could hear people under there screaming; I could see two or three people injured.".

Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones told NBC that about 27 rookies from the NFL team and members of the team's coaching staff were inside the suburban Dallas facility at the time."

Something that could happen to any team.

6. Yea and leave it to you to intentionally accuse me of
making fun of someone getting injured when you know full well I couldn't possibly be serious, and of course wasn't.

Despicable and frankly libelous my history of teasing madinmaryland about the Cowboys,

And you're calling me a douche? :puke:

11. You are as dumb as fuck if you can't analyze the
seriousness level of my posts by now.

Dumb as fuck.

How long have I been posting here, joking around constantly, and you refuse to recognize and admit that I wouldn't mock the serious injury of anyone.

Your goal at DU is to pour fuel on fire into order to incite others, to lie about me constantly and then verbally abuse me in front of everyone with an array of insults, including homophobic attacks that you refuse to acknowledge.

I'm so sick of your act, it's not even funny.

But keep it up trumad. I know you're suffering from a troubling compulsion and it's not your fault.

12. STFU, cboy4. Cover your ass all you want, but you made fun of a horrible occurance.
Edited on Sun May-03-09 06:26 PM by madinmaryland
We are SICK of your worn and tired SCHTICK.

You know, you just called trumad a homophobe, flame-starter, and mentally deficient.

It is time to STFU, cboy.

Until then, STFU!

17. No, if you would mind your own motherfucking business
I would not be sick.

You have to stick your nose in everyone's business because it's a compulsion.

20. What part of PUBLIC message board do you not understand?
Maybe if you did not insist on making asshole comments, this would not be an issue.

16. What A Piece Of Work You Are
You were wrong. Anybody with a brain (which leaves you out) knows it was an inappropriate time to make your silly, and unfunny "joke".

Admit you were out of place, and maybe people wouldn't have the attitude about you that they do. Everything isn't a personal attack. Sometimes people just don't agree with you. By this point in your life, you must be used to that. It absolutely must happen to you VERY often.

18. Yea, because you know so much about my life.
You're another one who doesn't know when to zip their mouth.

You are constantly abusing me, where as I treat you with nothing but respect.

Shame on you.

forum with respect, except for "upton"

So yes, STFU, cboy4

19. Nobody noticed that cboy apologised
in his OP? Lighten up people. He didn't make fun of anybody who actually got injured. Personally I was hoping that Al Davis for some reason had been hanging out there...

23. Shame on you for hoping someone gets hurt. Your comment
is unforgivable!!

The sports forum used to be a place for guys to joke around.

Now it's a haven for pussies.

26. You do know that most women find the term "Pussy" very derogatory?
Edited on Mon May-04-09 05:57 AM by trumad
So I guess we can now add Pussy to your derogatory repartee... right there with your use of "Retard" and you using "Special Needs" when insulting someone.

34. I like how you're an A-1 prick, and then put on an entertaining
display of faux outrage about derogatory terms.

I think I've heard everything now.

27. No
Not lightening up. Anytime he's offended he calls people homophobes and racists, but when he gets called on it he cries like a baby.

And, then instead of simply acknowledging it was probably the wrong thing to say, he got chippy and started name calling.

You want to ignore his silly behavior. Be my guest. But don't tell me what to do.

OK--if so...

You're a fucking idiot.

Oh trumad, that's just wrong of you!

I apologize.

I guess that makes it all better, ey?

25. They're lucky no one was killed.
What with the rain and the high voltage lighting flopping around like that, they could have all been electrocuted. A damn shame about the scout, dude is only 33.
