Jimmy was leaving anyway, because the Cowboys are just a toy to Jerry.  Thank God.

Jimmy was taking too much of the spotlight from Jerry

I hate Jones as much as the next guy, however all the stupid things he does is because he wants to win (or harass some young woman). Too many other owners just see the team as a cash-machine. Winning is nice, but not worth getting your knickers in a twist.

Definitely was better than Barry Switzer.

Jerry Jones doesn't care about the Cowboys winning. Jerry Jones cares about the Cowboys being interesting.

Ever notice almost every year, the Cowboys are in but never quite that good? They're almost always in it until the final week until they finally lose or just barely squeak into the playoffs. I'm convinced this isn't an accident.

I think Jerry Jones has molded the Cowboys into his own image. Always interesting, always discussed, always making money. The drama surrounding the team keeps everyone talking until the end. And that's just what he wants. Jerry Jones and the Cowboys are more about being interesting than being good.

That's the tip of the iceberg for what that f stick has to apologize for.

His story about Switzer flying down and expecting to meet with Jones AND Johnson is pure lunacy. It shows how intelligent and perceptive Jones thinks the average Cowboys fan is.

Jerry Jones is the new Al Davis.

Straight Outta Wells Branch:

I'm now of the belief that having a dynasty hurts money wise in the long term, compared with always in the playoffs with the occasional appeaence in the semi,-finals/finals

You get used to winning as a fan what happens when the inevitable rebuild must happen.... Fans leave in droves. Merch sales stop because everyone has the glory years stuff, attendance goes down cause " we suck", the local ads dry up so that beloved scrappy guy doesn't get a free car for doing some TV ads etc.....
