Lots of good info and knowledge here.
The truth lies somewhere in the middle of the Jimmy and Jerry Days.
If anyone really wants to understand the complete truth, then you better keep an open mind.
BOTH Jimmy and Jerry are BOTH to Blame and Praise for all of it. They BOTH have ego issues and need those egos stroked. Jerry wanted his "football" ego stroked and Jimmy wanted his "executive" ego stroked.
Instead of putting their PERSONAL EGOS aside, they got into a "ding ding swinging" contest. Who could make themselves feel the best and get the all mighty recognition they wanted or didn't want the other to get about what they had accomplished together.
Troy Aikman said it best. He made reference to the fact that they as a team we preached to daily to put your personal issues aside and commit to doing what's Best for the Dallas Cowboys. Yet he said the Two men who were supposed to be the leaders and examples of that exact philosophy weren't willing to do that.
