When Jerry Jones bought the Dallas Cowboys in the late 1980s, he wasn’t exactly a popular new owner. And then he rudely dismissed one of the greatest coaches of all time, Tom Landry.
So, in these economic challenges, he cannot find a suitor for naming rights at the stadium. Clueless on what to do, Jones goes with the most obvious name he could come up with in his head: Cowboys Stadium.
What a genius, right? Not so fast.
Jerry Jones could have gained a lot of respect back if he had named the stadium after the legend who build the Cowboys for three decades. Tom Landry Stadium would have been the most-fitting name for a new stadium. Even though Landry is no longer with us, the icon deserves more recognition from the Cowboys organization, and namely from Jerry Jones.
