Wade Phillips not to blame for dallascowboys.com's poor performance

By Cindy Boren

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.

First of all, Dallas is NOT, NOT -- NOT America's team. Second, if they were American's team, a record of 1-6 would be pathetic and represented by Bush and his cronies for destroying this country that was built on the backs of Black people. Third, Obama would not play for a racist organization like the Dallas Cowboys -- especially if they were team! He can't control the patheticness of whether so-called athletes show up to play the game every Sunday. But thank GOD!! for San Francisco for beating the hell outta the Texas Rangers in the World Series and for the losing season and cut-rate football that IS the Univ of Texas Longhorns. Here's your Fascist Triumverate!! ALL losers...all the time. BTW, if you like the 1-6 (soon to be 1-7 cowgirls), you should be on their site blogging...a site for losers!!

These guys are a bunch of idiots. Looks like Jerry has some more firing to do for incompetence (His son) I can't believe they don't understand the value of their online presence. They claim to be marketing savvy but this is just another example of their ignorance. How much money and visitors that online site generates? TONS!!!!

Remember, These are the same idiots who bid, in person, $276K at a PUBLIC auction mind you, for the domain name "Cowboys.com" and renegged because they thought they were bidding just $276. Really!!! The name sold later that month for $330K. How much was that stadium again Jerry? How much to secure your online brand? Pitiful!!!
