    Where are the people that wanted to argue this point now?

    Do you know the particulars of the TV contracts? In order for this to matter a TV contract needs to be short of expiring.


    Here is an article talking about how the 3 major networks carrying the NFL signed a 9 year deal. So maybe your hopes that this will effect Jones will matter around 2018.

    That is also local viewership. It's called America's team because of the national audience.

    It shows waning fan interest and there is no denying that. What else is there to say about it. That is what happens after almost two decades of irrelevence. I'll guarentee you it got Jerry's attention.

    This is all true, but you better believe that the organization pays attention to this. If local ratings are dropping, it shows that there is less interest in the team.

    Less interest in the team means less interest in attending games, less interest in buying merchandise, ect....

    If you dont think NFL teams pay attention to any of this, you are wrong.

    10% in one year is a big drop.

    This is DFW viewership, tv only, right? I wouldn't say it's indicative of anything, necessarily.

    I know, nationally, Dallas played in the most-watched game for each of the four major networks. That's pretty impressive.

    A few years ago I would find a way to watch every game. It was the priority of every weekend in the autumn/winter.

    This last season I probably missed watching at least six or seven Cowboy games and was fine just watching highlights. Jerry and his nonsense is sucking me dry. My passion as a Cowboy fan is bleeding away. I've enjoyed watching these playoff games more than I enjoyed the Cowboys games in '12.

    That's just in the DFW area. Not nation wide.

    That's what I get for not reading the whole thread.

    Playing the NFC South and AFC North doesn't help. Not a lot of very intriguing matchups there. Coupled with the fact that the whole division sucked and they played at Seattle early, I'm not surprised.

    There is a younger generation that has never known Dallas to be a winning franchise. It has been that long.

    I have said for a few years now that the fans vote with their wallets and eyeballs. It is the only thing that will get Jerruh to finally hire an actual professional GM. Not some oil guy playing fantasy football.

    I have been a Dallas fan for a long, long time but the way the franchise is ran is depressing.

    Need more sizzle...this will make Jerry draft a WR or something. Maybe trade for Randy Moss and do a going away tour complete with special $39.99 T-shirts and matching Victoria Secret Bra.

    Trust Jerry, he's working hard for the team.
