For decades no NFL team in history had more fans or more haters than the Dallas Cowboys. That star on the helmet and the arrogance that goes along with winning 5 Super Bowls made the Dallas Cowboys the most valuable sports franchise in the world. No team had won more Super Bowls than “America’s Team”. You loved them or hated them. There was no in between.
In 2009, Forbes listed the Cowboys as the highest valued sports franchise in the history of the United States, and second in the world (behind Manchester United of the English Premier League ), with an estimated value of approximately $1.65 billion. The Cowboys are the wealthiest team in the NFL, generating $270 million in annual revenue.
But the Steelers have won the most Super Bowls now, and the Cowboys have gone 16 years without a Super Bowl appearance while winning just one playoff game. After their embarrassing loss to the Giants, they’re 8/8 and won’t even be in the playoffs this year. Jerry Jones is turning life long Cowboys fans into Cowboys haters. Listen in to one of the three DFW sports radio stations for details.
Jerry Jones is the embodiment of the Cowboys’ hate these days. Jerry lead former legendary Giants owner Wellington Mara to say, after a Giants win in 1996, “It’s nice to see arrogance humbled.” Jones is the ultimate meddling owner, a rich guy who insists on hogging the spotlight and naming himself appointing himself General Manager for life. Just in case you forgot that, Jones promised last week during a radio interview that he has no intention of ever reducing his overbearing role.
But Jerry Jones is not just the incompetent General Manager who can’t draft NFL talent. Jerry is the Head Coach in hiding. Jerry is the egomaniac who actually made a trip to the sidelines last week to make sure his Princeton grad head coach was smart enough to keep his injured quarterback out of a meaningless game.
Last night was the 100th meeting between the Giants and Cowboys. Dallas has a 56-41-2 record against New York. The Cowboys won 12 straight against the Giants from 1974-1980. But if you’re younger than 40 years old, you don’t remember nor do you care.
Jerry Jones has become Al Davis and until Jerry joins Al, the Cowboys are going no where, just like the Raiders did for the last few decades under Davis.
As long as Cowboys Stadium is selling out and Jerry is making money on everything from merchandise & marketing, to not one but two world wide Dallas Cowboys Radio Networks, nothing is going to change. If you want to Cowboys to compete in the Super Bowl in your lifetime, stop enabling Jerry Jones.
Stop spending your hard earned money to support the Dallas Cowboys or STFU and live with it. Jerry Jones is the problem. YOU are the solution.
With the season ending Sunday night with a 31-14 loss to the Giants’, the Cowboys schedule for next season is set.
Dallas 2012 schedule got a little easier with the loss, which dropped them to a 3rd place finish in the NFC East for the second consecutive year. With the 8-8 record, the Cowboys will host the Chicago Bears and visit the Seattle Seahawks in the pair of games decided by the previous season’s record.
If the Cowboys had won last night, they would have hosted the Green Bay Packers and visited the San Francisco 49ers next season.
Aside from the division games and the Bears match-up, Dallas will host New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Cleveland and Pittsburgh. They will visit Atlanta, Carolina, Baltimore, Cincinnati, and of course, Seattle.
Because Jerry Jones is a horrible General Manager with poor drafting skills who over pays average players, set the over/under for regular season victories next season at 10. Take the UNDER. The Cowboys have the highest payroll in the NFL and don’t have any cap room left to obtain superior talent. In short, this team blows.
