Dallas Cowboys rumors page give you update information about the Dallas Cowboys a American Professional Football team based in Arlington, Texas which is in the Dallas Forth Worth suburbs of Dallas.
The Dallas Cowboys joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1960.
In an effort not to concede the South to the AFL, Dallas were the first
ever expansion team to play its first season without the benefits of a
NCAA College football draft.
They are in the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference in the NFL.
The Dallas Cowboys play their homes games at the AT&T Stadium in
Arlington, Texas. The Stadium is nick name Jerry's World which is name after the owner of the Cowboys Jerry Jones.
The Cowboys are worth 3.2 billion dollars, the most valuable NFL franchise according to Forbes magazine. They are the most valuable sports team in the United States.
Before the Dallas Cowboys rumors there were no NFL team south of the Mason Dixie line or Washington DC. A well known racist and segregationist George Marshall, owner of the Washington Redskins, had a monopoly on the South.
Marshall block Clint Murchison Jr and Lamar Hunt from getting a franchise in Dallas. Murchison Jr. had agreed to purchase the Washington Redskins from Marshall in 1958 but Marshall change the terms of the deal at the last minute.
An angry Murchison Jr. called the deal off. Marshall would oppose any deal for a Dallas franchise that Murchison Jr was a part of and since the NFL needed unanimous approval from team owner at that time, Marshall
would prevent Murchison Jr. from joining the league.
Marshall had falling out with the Redskins band leader Barnee Breeskin. Breeskin had written the lyrics to the Redskins song and owned the rights to the song, "Hail to the Redskins". Breeksin knew that Murchison wanted an NFL franchise.
Breeskins who was angry at Marshall, approached Murchison attorney to sell the rights to the song before the expansion vote in 1959. Murchison brought "Hail to the Redskins" for $2500.
Before the vote to award a new franchise, Murchison approach Marshall and told him that he owned the rights to the song and that Marshall could no longer play the song at home games.
After a few curse words from Marshall, Murchison gave the rights to "Hail to the Redskins" to Marshall for his vote, the one vote that would secure Murchison a franchise, and now we know how the rival between the Redskins and Cowboys was started.
I remember watching American's Team which is their nick name and seeing Roger Staubach, Robert Newhouse, Preston Pearson, Drew Pearson, Golden Richard and the rest of the Offense moving in cadence.
It was a site to see the Dallas Cowboys rumors move in cadence before the ball is snapped.
The NFL has made it a tradition to play a series of games on Thanksgivings Day, which is a holiday in the United States. This has been a tradition since 1920.
Currently, there are 3 games played every thanksgivings day. Dallas and Detroit host games and a third game has no set teams play yearly since 2006.
I remember watching the Dallas Cowboys rumors put a show on Thanksgivings Day with Roger Stubach and Robert Newsome. Then Tony Dorsett, Drew Pearson and the Dooms Day Defense. Then came Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Micheal Irvin and the Cowboys Defense.
Jerry's World is a domed Stadium with a retractable roof built in Arlington, Texas. The stadium has a gigantic, video trinatron board center hung high definition screen, one of the largest in the world. The screen is 160 by 72 feet, 20 yard line to the other 20 yard line on a NFL football field.
Jerry Jones along with the City of Arlington, Texas a suburbs of Forth Worth, funded the Stadium for $1.3 Billion with a B.
The Stadium was completed on May 27, 2009, it seats 85,000 and can expand to seat up to 105,000. Jerry World refers to the owner of the Dallas Cowboys rumors Jerry Jones who envisioned this stadium as a entertainment mecca and it is.
This entertainment mecca has hosted NFL games,
America s Team which is the nick name for the Dallas Cowboys being that they were seen more than the President and movie stars according to NFL Film narrator Bob Ryan.
The Dallas Cowboys rumors were the first team that I saw who had cheerleaders, the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are regarded as one of the best cheer-leading squads in the NFL and the United States.
Cowboys have had success in the past but since Jerry Jones fired Jimmy Johnson, the Cowboys have not won a playoff games since 1995. Jones is the general manager who's been mediocre. Jones is one NFL owner who wants to win but doesn't know how.
Jerry Jones is a great businessman but as a GM, he needs some help. Former Cowboys players who have won Super Bowls for Jerry Jones have said, that he needs to let someone else take over the picking of players for the Cowboys.
I think Jones is listening with the recent draft picks he has made on the offensive line. We will see, now its time to build the defensive line the way Jimmy Johnson did.
As Jimmy Johnson used to say "How bout those Cowboys"!
The Dallas Cowboys franchise is a winning franchise with a team owner who wants to win. They have accomplished:
