Dallas Cowboy Troofer

Yet another reason to hate the Cowpokes:

We're being lied to. That's what bothers me the most. There's a lot of evidence in almost any area of the entire event, and you can bring up a lot of inconsistencies and unanswered questions just about the event itself. Two of the three steel-frame buildings that day collapsed due to fire, and that's never happened before, never in history. But that day it happened three times, including one building that didn't get hit by a plane. Building Number 7 didn't get hit by a plane and it went straight down in six and a half seconds. In the vast majority of U.S. cities that would have been the tallest building in the city. It had nothing but a couple of small fires on a couple of floors, but it fell down at free-fall speed in six and a half seconds. There are several engineers and architects who have made the argument that it was a controlled demolition because, again, there's never been a steel building collapse due to fire. So how can it happen three times in one day?

Stepnoski was a solid player, a contributor to Dallas' success in the 1990s. He's not a Hall of Famer by any means, and judging by the article he seems to have more sense about that than he does about the 9-11 nuttery. I could make some jokes about his apparent pot use and conspiracy paranoia, but I'll leave that for the commenters.
