    According to this transcript it was "Don't" - "So don't tell me it's just a game."

    If I had voting rights (which I don't) I'd vote for dropping the "we are the zone" line and keeping the apostrophe:
    Sometimes less is more. And if it's surrounded by bricks crammed full with messages, a brick with a little more open space might stand out nicely.

    Well if it was "don't" let's go with "don't." I just thought "never" sounded more forceful.

    Agreed. If he actually said "don't" that's what we should use.

    Hostile, instead of just a card, wouldn't t be nice to send his family the replica brick they send you for buying it?

    i don't have a vote either way. just want to offer the major's family and friend a suggestion:

    all gave some, 14
    some gave all. 14
    rip x. hagerty 14

    the x is of course the major's initial. if his name is a four letter word or less, then the whol thing can go.

    I would lose the "We are the Zone". Sounds goofy.

    You could replace it with something more like:

    Zone Community - (14)
    CowboysZone.com

    Or the like, We are the zone sounds like a band of pre teens! :laugh2:

    Don't tell us it..............16 characters
    is just a game..............15 characters
    --Michael Irvin.............15 characters
    CowboysZone.com........15 characters


    We can drop the .com if they don't allow it. This gives credit for the quote to Irvin.

    Just a thought.


    Also here's a take off on a quote from Rayfield Wright's HOF Speech.

    Heaven knows we.........15 characters
    are not saints...............15 characters
    We are Cowboys!..........15 characters
    CowboysZone.com.........15 characters



    I like that one too.

    I did contribute & my vote goes for below inscription. I also like giving credit to Michael & it sounds better without the "we are the zone" line :


    Don't tell us it..............16 characters
    is just a game..............15 characters
    --Michael Irvin.............15 characters
    CowboysZone.com........15 characters

    If credit's going to go to Irvin (a nice idea), maybe the line should be changed back to the original "me" instead of "us."

    Or maybe I'm overthinking this...

    Are you saying Irvin was a "Me" player? :laugh2:

    This is my vote: If "us" is changed to "me" that's okay. As I said early on in this thread, I wish we had the space to credit Michael with the quote. This option does that very nicely.

    Don't tell us it..............16 characters
    is just a game..............15 characters
    --Michael Irvin.............15 characters

    I like this one crediting Irvin but it does seem odd with "us" instead of "me" if we're going to credit him. Not sure if there is a better option. I'd rather see this than "We are the zone" though.

    My vote is for the updated option crediting Irvin. I like that one very much. I don't see why they wouldn't allow the .com for us, it's still very much 'Cowboys' based. I hope they will, at least.
