When Dallas Cowboys Owner and GM Jerry Jones inducted Drew Pearson, Larry Allen, and Charley Haley in to the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor, it brought the total to 20 men (18 players plus Tom Landry and Tex Schramm) in the Ring. It also sparked questions about whether Charley Haley deserved to be in The Ring, and that controversy led some of us to start thinking about who should be the next to get inducted in to the Ring.
We decided to let you, the Landy Hat faithful, determine which Cowboy player(s) most deserve to be in the Ring of Honor. We will begin providing profiles for the 10 finalists this week. If you want to read about the methodology we used to create the list of 10 finalists or the 3 players who received Honorable Mentions for almost making the Top 10, please click here.
Before we begin the countdown of the Top 10, I should explain why you will have to follow the link to read the remainder of this article. As some of you know, I have accepted the Editor’s position at a Fansided website that covers all Dallas sports. You can read our advertisement for writers here.
I hope to see many of our regulars (Shady, Dboyz62, jamesabel7, jbbravo, jrcowboy, and Cowboyfan7764, I am talking to YOU! ) supporting the Dallas Cowboys at the new site.
In trying to get this website up and running, I sought the assistance of many journalists, bloggers, school officials, lawyers, and other people in a myriad of ways.
The following websites/people were particularly helpful, so I want to say a public “Thank-you”, but I also want to encourage you all to visit their websites at least once to check it out. Do it. It is good to be a diehard Cowboy fan, but it is also good to try new things ( I am trying to learn about Major League Soccer for example, and it is much cooler than I thought.)
Buzz Carrick – Check out his blog 3rd Degree at ESPN. He founded the site to cover FC Dallas in 1997.
Wes Phelan – Ckeck out www.Killerfrogs.com. It has forums, chats, news, and everything that is TCU sports
Ok. With no further adieu, here is the link for the second instalment of “The TOP TEN Candidates for the Dallas Cowboys’ Ring of Honor.” Please keep in mind that the new site is just getting started; we should have original material on a daily basis in early March!
