Wade Phillips not to blame for dallascowboys.com's poor performance
This one wasn't Wade Phillips' fault.
Someone, probably someone not named Phillips, neglected to renew the domain name "dallascowboys.com" and as the Cowboys were playing the Packers on Sunday night in Green Bay, the site was replaced by a page that indicated the name was available for purchase from Network Solutions LLC (and the sound of crickets). The oversight was quickly corrected, but it can take up to 48 hours for all interweb servers to catch up.
So...if you were a Cowboys fan going to dallascowboys.com for updates on the Sunday loss and the status of Phillips into Monday, you were greeted by a photo of
kitties and puppies two kids playing soccer, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Victor Godinez of the News looked into the matter and writes:
In the publicly available database on WhoIs.com, the domain's registrant is listed as Dallas Cowboys Football Club Ltd., but the specific e-mail address administrative contact is for Jerry Jones Jr., son of owner Jerry Jones and executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer for the team. A message to that e-mail address and a phone call to Jones Jr. were not returned.
The Cowboys say they have moved to auto-renewal of the domain name.
