Who cares about winning, when you can buy the official charcoal, duct tape, and plastic cutlery of the Dallas Cowboys?

Hell we see them every Thanksgiving, and at least 2-4 more times a year on Sunday night or Monday night... he is still getting paid. When owning something like a sports team isn't that what is it all about?

At least the charcoal makes perfect sense, since outdoor grilling drops off by January.

"
The part where Jerry Jones is listed as GM?  I am pretty sure that is code for "Meddling owner interferes with the professional running of his own team" which in this case is probably holding the Cowboys back.

To be fair, he's not intentionally crapping on them like say, the Browns. I believe he is desperately trying to win and spares no expense in his attempts.

He's just bad at GMing the team. It's not that he doesn't care or doesn't want to win, he's doing the best he can. Which, granted, isn't that good.

But I think we should make a distinction between Jones and the Cowboys and franchises that only care about making money regardless of the product or success of the team. (E.g. Bengals)

Jerry's problem is that he's loyal. He wants to take care of his Cowboys, and so he ends up doing things like signing Orlando Scandrick to a 4-year extension. It's a fine quality to have in an owner- "come here and produce, and you'll be part of the family". It's just a terrible quality in a GM.

The Patriots' approach- "One of you is guaranteed to make the roster, the rest of you are easily replacable cogs"- works. It works well. The trouble is, it looks like somebody in the Dallas camp has figured it out. Jerry of 3 years ago would not have told Miles Austin to go get his shinebox.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I like getting a root canal better than watching the Cowboys.

Though, I do have a number of friends who list their second favorite team as 'whoever is playing Dallas this week'.

I'm pretty sure the Steelers are giving the Cowboys a hard run for the title of America's Team, judging from the amount of Steelers stuff I see around here.  Hell, I see more Steelers stuff than Redskins stuff and they're the local team AND their training camp is here in Richmond.  Weird.

We can always hope that Cowboys fans will come to their senses and boycott the stadium, but I fear that hope is in vain.

They did! Don't call it a comeback!

Didn't get to watch it though. Moved to Dallas and the U.S. after all of the superbowls, been a fan for 8 or 9 years so I've only known them as being pretty awful. I guess it saves me from the terrible depression that most cowboys fans around the metroplex feel on a yearly basis.

It also makes me not quite understand the hatred other football fans have for them since they're so bad. But to each his own I guess.

Everyone else in the family has moved to the Boston area, I've become tired of hearing about the Patriots like you wouldn't believe.

First of all, "America's Team" is not a title. It's a nickname. And it's just as annoying as "Steeler Nation" or "12th man" or whatever any team or fanbase decides to deem itself. I haven't heard a fan bring up "America's Team" in years, but I hear people who hate it bring it up all the time. Perhaps if you stop biatching about it, it'll go away. Give it a shot.

And what do you think that "boycotting the Stadium" will do? Really? Do you think that if they schedule the Final Four at the Stadium, people will decline to show up because Jerry? Maybe concerts. Or rodeos. Or monster truck rallies!  "Yeah, I really wanted to see U2, but you know, Jerry owns the stadium, so I better not, just to prove a point."

It's weird, right? Yet, they call us fans the delusional ones.

Jerry DOES care about winning, I don't care what the author of this very stupid & overplayed headline says. All he wants is to win another Super Bowl without Jimmy to show everyone that those 3 in the 90's were really because of him & not Jimmy. It's about money, sure, but I think it's way more about validation & his ego. And he makes snap decisions & pours money into players past their prime & just makes shiat decisions.

We didn't elect him. I don't take responsibility for his stupid decisions. But I'm not going to abandon my team over it.

Paying for it?  The article is about TV ratings. In that case, advertisers are paying for airtime during Cowboys games because they have been shown to consistently attract a lot of viewers. And as noted above, people will tune in just because they hate the Cowboys. They are the real idiots.

I was merely making an observation. I don't stay up nights over it.

And I should have been clearer about the boycott--the fans should boycott Cowboys games.  I can only imagine how much a ticket to a Cowboys home game costs, so if there's an owner/GM who basically says "fark you, it doesn't matter that we're not good, just popular" empty seats might make him reconsider that statement.  NFL fans, however, seem to be a forgiving lot.  Hey, I'm an Eagles fan and I didn't see empty seats when Vick was QB, although I knew a bunch who said they would boycott games until he was gone (and didn't).

I watch cowboy games because some football is better than any baseball (god damn it mariners!!!) I mean I watched that horrible preseason game last year between the dolphins and the cowboys where they didn't even play the third string!

I've skipped events and turned down free tickets at Fed-Ex because I don't want to even put parking dollars in Little Danny Snyder's pockets. No more Six Flags. No more Johnny Rockets.

That said, I've just about given up on the NFL. Your system is broken if you have to cut players that are under contract -- contracts that weren't signed with guns to anyone's heads -- just to get below some mythical salary cap number.  Free agency I can live with. The crap that Jerrah pulled with Ware, nope.  And I'm a football coach. If your system is such that you're losing football coaches, Mr. Goodell, your system is broken.

Marisyana: And I should have been clearer about the boycott--the fans should boycott Cowboys games. I can only imagine how much a ticket to a Cowboys home game costs


I expect to pay around $200 for upper level seats. The fans aren't going to boycott going to Cowboys games over some dumb shiat Jerry said. Come on.


Marisyana: so if there's an owner/GM who basically says "fark you, it doesn't matter that we're not good, just popular"


He never said that & he didn't imply it. He commented on TV ratings & said that people will tune into Cowboys games, regardless of performance, and he's right. Here's the full comment, which he made at a press conference announcing that the Country Music Awards would be held at the Stadium next year:

"As you know, the Cowboys have not gone to the playoffs in several years," Jones said. "We have not gone, yet we're the most popular TV show there is on television. We lead all teams in TV ratings. We lead, 24 of the last top 25 shows were NFL games, and any time your Cowboys play they're up there at the top and leading. Now, what causes that? What causes that is creating some aura, creating some excitement. We want to use that as best we can to make this award show the greatest ever."

-Link

Seems to me like he was hyping the show & saying that the ratings were going to be good because the venue is so awesome. He says some garbled, weird shiat, but assuming he doesn't care if the Cowboys win? From that? I think that's a big misguided.

ColTomParker: Free agency I can live with. The crap that Jerrah pulled with Ware, nope.


Why? He was getting paid a lot of money & was under-performing. And I thought the salary cap was something decided on by the owners & players union? Doesn't sound mythical to me.

Di Atribe

I am 41 yrs old. Raised in North Texas and have follwed the Cowboys religiously for at least 36 yrs. My first bike was a number 12 Staubach, went to Super Bowl 27, and old enough to remember all the way from Clint Longley to present day. Hell, the day I brought my daughter home from the hospital in 1996 I was wearing an Emmitt Smith jersey.

Do yourself a favor and quit this team. Jerry has no business being GM and has managed the team in such a fashion. The NFL has for the last 5-10 yrs annually put out a worse product with rule changes, marketing, overexposure. Jerry World is an absolute self-mastabatory abomination (from the perspective on my tour). Until he relinquishes his grip that franchise won't get a dime of my money. I quit watching them last year and it was refreshing. I wonder if I will ever go back.  Root for the Rangers, pick an EPL team, and move on.

/Best of luck though. I honestly hate myself sometimes for giving up.

Di Atribe: And what would you propose we do? Just stop being fans? Go bandwagon another team?


I don't know. I'd give it some serious consideration, though.

I'll be honest. I don't know what I would do if the Rooneys came out and said that they weren't really happy that the team wasn't winning, but it was OK because they were getting fat on fans like me. I do know that I'd feel used. Fortunately for me, Dan and Art Jr. actually do make the effort, and everybody recognizes it.

Why would you say something like this? The only thing he ever has to say is that he is doing his level best to put a superior team on the field. Implying that it's OK that the team fails because he's making a fortune is just a kick in the nuts. Has Jerry ever been able to walk by a camera without saying something stupid?

bamnuke: Root for the Rangers, pick an EPL team, and move on.

I do root for the Rangers & I like soccer, but not like I like football. It's sad that you gave up on your team over one aspect of the franchise. That's a choice you're entitled to make, but I think I'll pass.


Adolf Oliver Nipples: I don't know what I would do if the Rooneys came out and said that they weren't really happy that the team wasn't winning, but it was OK because they were getting fat on fans like me.


I guess I'd be upset if Jerry actually said that, too. Good thing that's not even close to what he said.


Adolf Oliver Nipples: Has Jerry ever been able to walk by a camera without saying something stupid?


NO. Trying to translate his garbled, word salad mess is a special skill that can only be properly honed after many years of facepalms, furrowed brows, stares at the ceiling, and far too many "wait, rewind that, WHAT?"

There are plenty of things to criticize & make fun of Jerry for. There's really no need to manufacture stuff.
 
2014-04-15 12:41:21 AM  
It seems to me that there aren't many owners left in the NFL that don't care about winning. Mike Brown is just about the only one I can think of. Even the Bidwell's seem to like winning these days.

I am in the camp that thinks Jerry probably cares more than most owners. Like Di said he really, really wants to win on his own terms. Of course, it stinks for the fans.

I know it will be tough to be a real fan instead a fangirl...
