I ca't imagine Staubach, Lilly, Hayes, Dorsett or Aikman doing this. ... he makes the Cowboys and the NFL in general look bad.

Well, then I think you don't know the Cowboys very well. Nate Newton and his vanload of weed? Michael "can I tell you who I am?" Irvin's partying so hard a Dallas cop tried to have him murdered (because the cop's wife was one of Irvin's toys)? Hell, the drunken hunting trips alluded to in North Dallas Forty INCLUDED Bob Lilly.

The NFL's been putting up with bad behavior for a lotta years, and for a young star like Elliott, a drunken shove-down in Vegas is tiddlywinks by comparison. If there were cellphones & security cameras following those five guys around all the time, it'd probably be easier to imagine them doing more than what Elliott did.
