NFL  > Dallas Cowboys  > Jerry Jones LOVES the Cowboys being mediocre
October 2, 2012, 11:33 PM
Jerry built a stadium the size of Texas and he did it do draw attention to HIMSELF. Now he is selling ladies underwear out of that stadium to draw attention to HIMSELF. When the Cowboys won the Super Bowls with Switzer and Johnson and they got the attention, Jerry quickly got rid of them. Jerry loves things the way they are right now. Right now the Cowboys are a mediocre team and all the attention is focused on Jerry. Just the way he loves it. Jerry is a LOSER who wants to draw attention to himself and realizes that if the Cowboys win a Super Bowl, all the attention will go to the players and coaches, and he'll have NONE of that.

I can't argue with that.

Most, if not all, you say is true. We, as fans, have little or no control over JJ and his doings. Mostly no control. He can be an embarrassment. But, we have known this for years. It's nothing new.

i think JJ loves attention and the more he can pile on himself the bigger his smile is going to be. however, i'll never believe he wants his team to be mediocre. dallas winning SBs puts JJ even more in the public eye, for positive reasons, not the negative ones he's faced with now. no owner wants to spend the kind of money he spends on players and be content with average. say what you want about JJ (and 99% of it will be true) but he wants to win and that won't change.

DallasFan,

He doesn't want to have to share the spotlight with anyone. Right now he is the Face of the Franchise. When JJ won the Super Bowl, that changed and led to JJ getting rid of him.

you guys may be right, but i still find it a little hard to believe any owner would rather be an average team so he can be in the spotlight more. that's a stretch to me. but there is no doubt JJ is among the worst medis whor** of our time. and this constant distraction is affecting his judgement as a GM which also affects the team.... all in all, a recipe for disaster.

THATS A BUNCH OF BULL! JJ is just ur average narccisist who is oblivious to the outside world, no deep dark plan!

Didn't you already say that at Post 51 of the other Cowboys thread? For a minute there I thought you might be trying to bring attention to YOURSELF by repeating a bad rant from one thread as a new thread altogether. But then I realized, "no one would do that" so it can't be the case. Can it?

Yes, it can. He's repeated himself to me before, and on different threads.

I'm starting to believe JJ is becoming senile, and has been for quite some time, Mike. He talks in circles, and without any clear meaning or direction. He's one of those "Things That Make You Go Hmmmmmmmmm".

As long as he has millions coming in, he seems to think he's "winning".....But, that's the way I look at it, and have been for quite some time.

While I'm at it, Garrett needs to go. Joe Theismann is also a blooming idiot...........wait.....blooming means "starting" kind of.......He's fully bloomed. See SportsCenter article.

There are several owners who are "avg".....and have been for years. But, they stay in the background and make their money. JJ is a bit different. He loves the spotlight, he loves his money, and in my opinion, this "desire for winning" is a sales job on folks, to hide his inadequacy in forming a decent team. He is NOT, nor will he ever be, a GM. He likes his VALUE too much to get really good players. The O line will likely never be as it once was. He does just enough to keep people interested, such as the secondary. See his coaching hires, even Garrett, who was hired BEFORE Wade.

Now, looking back at the early 90's, after Johnson got the team competitive and won 2 SB's, Johnson then left, and JJ said any of 500 coaches could win with the Cowboys, which was BS and still is. The key word here is SPOTLIGHT. And, on JJ's face.

Why is it he does commercials? Because he wants the spotlight on HIM, not the team. The team is bringing in money, win, lose or draw. So, being an average team affects his income very little. His stadium is nothing but one huge **** party palace, for those rich enough to rub elbows and BE SEEN.

I have no use for Jerrah Jones myself. None. Or Garrett.

if you can read..... my post agrees that JJ has no deep dark plan. the person that started this post (lebron) suggested JJ wants his team to be average - i did NOT agree with him.

once your net worth is in the billions, you'd think maybe income no longer drives you.... i mean, how many billions can you spend especially at his age? you'd think winning championships would be a focus for someone like JJ. his legacy on the franchise as owner. but the spotlight seems to be his main interest and winning is secondary. i am trying to talk myself into becoming more of a texan fan....

Hang in there, Mike.......................I know the feeling. You aren't the only one, but then we'd be accused of being bandwagoneers...........

I have, however, dulled myself down to where, although it's aggravating at first, I manage to get over it quickly and go on. The more this circus goes on like this, the more numb you can get to it.

The spotlight IS INDEED his main objective. Why does he do commercials? He don't need the money. He doesn't need the advertising. But, maybe he wants to be worshiped in the business world as a great entrepreneur? Or maybe the greatest?

My opinion is he's senile.........if he's not, he's very close to it.
