Tony Dorsett's son upset Cowboys let players wear No. 33 jersey

The Dallas Cowboys don’t retire numbers, but it seems like some sacred numbers get certain treatments. Players won’t wear certain numbers that are sacred, and other sacred numbers are passed down to specific players, like Dez Bryant wearing the No. 88 jersey Hall of Famer Michael Irvin made famous, and Drew Pearson before him.

Hall of Fame running back Tony Dorsett wore No. 33 during a stellar career with the Cowboys, and that number is still in circulation. Most recently, rookie safety Ryan Smith out of Auburn has worn the number, and Dorsett’s son is not too thrilled about it. He has taken to Twitter to voice his displeasure.
