Yes, Avery in Dallas was a huge mistake and fiasco. You can rage against him all you want, but remember this -- He's just a normal guy. He had some serious issues, got some help, and seems to be doing better. At the end of the day, that's way more important than being stuck with half his pay for another season. (Even though paying him to play us tomorrow night definitely sucks!)
