One DALLAS MORNING NEWS columnist is calling for questions, and not blame in the case of the Cowboys’ practice dome collapse. And that’s fine for a major newspaper. But this here’s a blog, so I’m going to go ahead and assign a large chunk of the blame to the Cowboys, for not having the roof inspected. Which is very illegal, in case you were wondering.
The Cowboys applied for a permit last year to replace the roof on the 6-year-old facility, but never told the city of Irving, Texas, when the work was completed. A full city inspection should have taken place, but apparently never did. And now Rich Behm is permanently paralyzed. You can bet a number of lawsuits are on the way.
