Bringing this back up with my fundamental question?
What is egotistical?
Having the Cowboys revolving around JJ is egotistical of him, but absolutely not if he gives thought to his epitaph:
"The man that insured the most followed team ever and greatest win percentage in the NFL, ran off the two coaches responsible for the five championships, made sure they never again exceeded .500 or advanced past the divisional playoffs"
Is it true egotism when his grave (if marked) will be a magnet for desecration?
