Terry Hendrix, as he notes in his lawsuit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, is speaking for all of us. He's speaking on behalf of Dez Bryant, all Dallas Cowboys fans and all people in and from the "Sovereign Republic of Texas." His demands -- make that our demands -- are simple: Because Dez Bryant did, as we all know, make that catch against the Packers, the one that would have set the Cowboys up at the Green Bay one with a chance to take the lead deep in the fourth quarter, the NFL owes us $88,987,654,321.88.
It's a more than reasonable sum. After all, as Hendrix says, "The plaintiffs did suffer a true injury in fact when the respondent performed a gross negligence by and through a 'video reversal' of an outstanding 31 yard pass reception by Dez Bryant."
Hendrix, who is currently doing a stretch at the Fremont Correctional Facility in Colorado, alleges that the reversal occurred due to "fraud, theft and gross stupidity," which is obvious.

The NFL conspiracy denied the Cowboys certain victory, Hendrix says.
"The Cowboys offense would have created a perfect 'Autobahn' to drive into the endzone for the score and victory."
