    Not Pats related, but the crazy sad story of Cowboys Tyron Smith and how money does crazy things to some folks...

    Sounds like his money has turned his family into a bunch of leeches.....

    Tyron Smith Battling Family Over Money

    Family members have been pressuring Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Tyron Smith for money, sources told ESPNDallas.com.

    According to a police report obtained by the Dallas Morning News, a 911 call was made after family members showed up at Smith's North Dallas home and proceeded to "harass and torment" him "in the pursuit of collecting financial gain."

    It was just the latest in a series of attempts to get money from Smith, sources confirmed Thursday after the situation was first reported by the newspaper.

    Smith declined comment after Wedneday's practice at the team's facilities in Valley Ranch.

    According to sources, family members have continued to ask Smith for money even after he gave them a large sum after he was picked ninth overall in the 2011 NFL draft and signed to a four-year, $12.5 million contract by the Cowboys.

    Smith filed a protective order during the summer against his mother, Frankie Pinkney, and stepfather, Roy Pinkney, sources said. Smith has three sisters and two brothers, who also are prohibited from making contact with Smith on behalf of his parents.

    Multiple sources told the Morning News that Cowboys security had to remove one of Tyron Smith's family members from the team's practice facility during training camp in Oxnard, Calif., about two hours from Riverside, where Smith's parents own a cleaning business.

    Smith grew up working in the cleaning business with his mother and stepfather. After he was drafted, he talked lovingly of them, and the Cowboys mentioned how well he was raised.

    Smith is being represented by Dallas-based attorneys Royce West and John Schorsch, who said the player was forced to turn to authorities to handle the matter.

    Schorsch told ESPNDallas.com Thursday that Smith is "a good kid. This is hard on him. But he's handled this with dignity and grace, I'm proud of the manner in which he's handled it."

    Joe Panos, Smith's agent, declined comment.

    "I think every player and every coach, really around this league, have different things going on in their lives and you just have to come into work and do your job as best as you can," coach Jason Garrett said Thursday, adding that he didn't see the issue affecting Smith.

    Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Thursday: "He's handling his business. It's personal but Tyron is a man and everybody has things they have to handle personally and I have a lot of confidence he'll handle it."

    Good for him to not give in to family pressure and do what he needs to do.

    His family is truly pathetic. I can only imagine how far they've pushed it for him to take legal action. But, again, good for him.

    Good luck with your cleaning business you fking leeches.

    Sad. From all accounts he seems like a good kid. Terrible that your own mother is trying to squeeze you for money. He now has a restraining order on his own mom...how crazy is that? Btw, i agree with it but damn sad.

    I think there is an easy solution here.  ... Take 1 mil of that money, put it in a steel cage, then put members of his family in the cage with it...who ever is left standing gets to take the cash

    His family is trying to take money from him.  They are simply trying to steal his money.

    They want him to "spread the wealth around a little bit" and they are telling him to "be fair" and if you "make a little more you can afford to give us more."

    Ultimately his family is saying "You didn't build that!"

     

    He should give them free cell phones - that sometimes helps.
