07:55 AM ET 11.16 | There is indeed a new sheriff in Dallas. Marion Barber will be fined for violating the Cowboys' enhanced dress code that required a player wear a sport coat, tie, slacks and dress shoes, according to a source. Jason Garrett would not reveal what the punishment would be in his Monday press conference. "The players understand what the expectations are and what the parameters are and we'll handle them with the consequences we think are right," Garrett said, "and we'll keep them in house." Barber was seen at the team's Jersey City hotel in a sport coat without a tie, wearing a pair of jeans. He wore jeans and tennis shoes with a sport coat on the trip home.

Not here, FJM... as bad as this team had been playing they should be fined for blowing their noses in public.

Dear Mr. Snyder & your Redskins,

Hi. It???s me. Your favorite fan. The only fool stupid enough to root for the Redskins daily in the SI threads. Today is bitter sweet, and exciting for me. After 35 years of devote loyalty, I am now announcing my resignation as a Washington Redskins fan. You can have them. I???m sick and tired of each and every year having a different set of silly faces with headsets and overpaid, under-achieving athletes. But here???s the good news! I am only 30 miles away from Baltimore, so they are willing to take me in as a fan. !@@#$ you. They play real football only a few minutes down the Beltway. I never thought I would be following my boy Jim Zorn over to Baltimore to root for a REAL TEAM. You should check us out sometimes. Between the Washington Redskins and these Washington women, I have aged 15 years in 4 years. No more. Today is a new chapter. I???m going to start dating Hispanic women, and root for the Ravens. The tickets are cheaper in Baltimore. The parking is cheaper in Baltimore. They PLAY FOOTBALL IN BALTIMORE. Something you might now EVER know anything about. Good luck with your latest huge signing in Donovan McNabb, and the rest of your ALL-Star lineup. You???ve really got something going there. Oh, and if you think you can???t sell tickets now, wait till next season. Please take my name off that mailing list. No more fan mail. No more fan discounts. No more announcements. You can keep all that shish amongst yourselves. Thank you Baltimore for welcoming me to a Historic Franchise. I promise to be on my best behavior and I will not disappoint. It???s just going to take me a little while to adjust to winning, is all.

That game wasn't bad, it was shockingly bad.

Coors Lite Guy: Coach, what do you think of the dress that babe with the Coors Lite is wearing? Pretty hot, huh?

Coach Garrett: Well, I don't like it. We have a dress code here.

Coors Lite Guy: But, if she rubbed up against you, would you buy her another Coors Lite?

Coach Garrett: Fine.

Other Coors Lite Guy: Well, she won't. She said she doesn't like your haircut.

Coach Garrett: I'll be speaking with Barber about that.

No...this is a good thing. This kind of attitude is the s/*t that they got away with under cupcake which allowed the players to think they could do whatever they want whenever they want. Well...not any more. If a captain doesn't obey the HC, you got problems. And they had a boatload under cupcake.

Sounds like rule enforcement and accountability followed the new sheriff to town. I like it.

November 16, 2010  08:24 AM ET

If they can keep winning, the players should be happy to wear pink tutus. Hell, I'd bet Jerry Jones would be happy to wear a pink tutu.

In public, even.

He just needs to crack the whip to show there's a new coach who isn't going to take any crap.

Those crybabies complained about Parsells being a hard case and "not treating them like men". He leaves and JJ gives them Mr. Nice Guy Phillips. Look at the way they played for him. Basically through him under the bus by being a bunch of prima donnas. Never again should JJ fall for their BS again about a coach and his rules.

SInce they want to act like children they can get treated like children. They are not men until they play like men and win some football games. Do it Garrett's way or take a seat Barber. Your stats are not good enough to be anything special anyway.

A dress code for pro players?? WTF... are we in catholic school here

So when Magini does similar things in Cleveland everyone jumps on him, but when this happens in Dallas everyone praises the coach?

Gotta love the double standard.
