Yeah he is and he is going to continue to be one. Your point. Not that you would have one.
All fans suffer at one point. I think you and others are missing the point. Al and jerry's legacy is going to be what they did at certain points tho put their franchise over the top. All the other stuff will be underneath that. Us fans can be frustrated by what's going on today but I'm talking about that I'm talking about what Al did for the Raiders and what Jerry did for the Cowboys that got them the status they are at now.
They probably booed because they were eating a $70 pizza & they looked up & see that ugly mug in HD.
That'll make you lose your lunch.
You think eventually they'd quit showing him. Who goes into any event there thinking "Gee I hope they show Jerry on the big screen tonight!"
Read the thread. The point is obvious.
Well I have read the thread. I don't think you have or at least followed what my point is. My point is regardless of what has happened to the Cowboys Jerry is still a HOFer. There is nothing more or less to my point. You keep trying to make it deeper than it is by bring OJ into it for whatever reason. That's not the point of the thread. So follow your own advice.
Really I'd like to know exactly what they 'far more' contribute. Some of these have done major contributions and some haven't and hardly any I would describe as 'far more'. More in some cases definitely but far more. Not really. The only way I would describe far more is if they went down on the field and played the game. I think you don't know what you are talking about and just talking out of your ***.
Whatever flips your burger.
I don't know if Jerry will make the HOF but I can see him inducting himself into the Ring of Honor.
"Today I am here to honor uh..well..uh...myself!"
Is that Napoleon Bonaparte? I always pictured him as Daniel Snyder and Jerry Jones as a skinny Henry VIII. Big Henry never abdicated his throne either.
^ Yes, Napoleon crowning himself as Emperor.
I doubt Jerry will go into the HOF, .at least not for a long time. The owners might respect him but they don't have a vote and it's hard enough for Cowboy players to get in.
Can you name anyone in the HoF that left their team worse off than when they found it?
Taking an historically elite team to a .500 team the last 20 years and counting is not exactly a trivial topic of discussion for the HoF committee. Not preside, but actively administered the decline.
George Halas didn't contribute "far more" than Jerry to making the NFL what it is today? How about Al Davis? Or Lamar Hunt, Pete Rozelle, Ed Sabol, or the late great Tex Schramm?
Jerry's most significant contribution as owner of the Cowboys has been to reduce the sport's proudest and most accomplished franchise to the status of perennial also-ran. Imo that more than trumps any financial success he has achieved during that period.
Wow that's not what i said. I said 'Some of these have done major contributions and some haven't ' more than Jerry. What part of that did you not understand. People like you read what they want to read. How bout read what I posted again until you understand it.
My point is I feel Jerry absolutely belongs in the HOF and has contributed just about as much if not more than those already in the HOF. Jerry's most significant accomplishment is restoring the Cowboys back to the top of the NFL. I know it's hard for you to give him credit for that but he was a big part of rejuvenating this franchise. Get you Jerry hatred out of your system for a few minutes and also realize the big picture when he first came to the Cowboys.
^ The Cowboys have been an elite team since 1997 - not withstanding a couple of years around 2007? They have been .500 during that time, so who is cherry-picking?
Yeah BABY....no truer truth can be spoken. We are the DIFFERENCE.
In at least one of these threads, it's been mentioned that since Jerry bought the Cowboys, their value increased ten times. I won't doubt his business skills, but hardly anyone has mentioned at least $500M subsidies from the City of Arlington/NFL to build the stadium and the taxbreaks all sports owners get. Part of Jerry's success is the leverage all sports owners get - help that many people are questioning they need as well off as they are.
