Not what I heard at all. Unless you are a huge Cowboys fan, Irvin comes off as an obnoxious, incessant, know-it-all. I've heard it reported that both Steve Young and Tom Jackson (remember him calling Irvin "retarded" on national t.v.?) couldn't stand the guy, and that they almost came to blows several times. Considering how annoying Irvin is, I'm not surprised.
