    As long as they are the most popular team in the world and don't absolutely suck, there is none at all. The only time Jerry gave in was after 3 straight 5-11 years with Campo. It would have to take something like that to happen for any real changes.

    In an interview, Jerry was asked was he disappointed or something to that degree. He said to look at the stadium he had and said how could he be disappointed or upset with something like that he could call his own. That sums it up right there. He's all about the splash and flash, not the actual meat and potatoes.

    Unfortunately, the three 8-8 seasons were just 5-11 disguised as 8-8.
    The Houdini effect allows Jerry to .... Say, insist, spout off all the crap he does...

    I agree to a certain extent. In fact, some can argue in hindsight, 8-8 is worse than 5-11. You are stuck in mediocrity purgatory. You get a middle of the road draft pick. At least 5-11 can force changes along with a good draft pick. I feel the bottom has to drop out for Jerry to maybe open his eyes like he did in 2003 bringing Bill in here. 8-8 and missing the playoffs by one game keeps hope alive in his eyes and we get stuck with the same thing over and over.

    Like the movie Groundhog Day.

    A: When the money stops rolling in due to poor performance.

    Not in Jerry's mind. The three 8-8 seasons were really 11-5 seasons disguised as 8-8 because of a run of bad luck and injuries. He knows we're oh so close.

    Shame is inversely proportional to net worth.

    As long as we keep getting moral victories, we are fine. Honestly, I think they are delusional.

    Yeah damn all us who aren't going to quit watching our favorite football team so that other fans can get that boycotting done that they're wanting.

    I'd like to point out that you do not have to beg players to restructure a contract. Why would anybody not want to take a big lump sum of their contract up right away? If you ask a player to restructure, they come running with a pen in their hand.

    Read the characteristics of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. People with that syndrome cannot feel shame or even understand or give credence to criticism. As an example, I had a narcissist patient who arrogantly had affairs without conscience; when finally caught and extorted, facing embarrassment and shame in family and career, he committed suicide. No one could believe that this extremely confident and powerful man would ever have reason to do that, but this illustrates how intolerable shame is to a true narcissist.

    To the question.

    When another 20 years pass and there 3-4 more Super Bowls played in his stadium and none include his team.

    Players wanted FA they got it and this is part of the deal. Shame no Dallas should not be ashambed no more than any other team who cuts and or releases Vets. Pats do it they are not shameful for that. Dallas doing this will help get the cap in order resinging Ware and Hatcher only puts us in a deeper hole. Seems you want to complain if Dallas keeps Ware and complain when they release him.
