    How many decades does Jerry get a pass because of what he did in ancient times? Give me a number on that please.

    Fans don't deserve anything because the Cowboys organization doesn't owe the fans anything. Similarly, fans don't owe the Cowboys organization anything. This is a free market. You can leave whenever you want and seek out a better product.

    Now, whether or not Jerry has mismanaged the Cowboys over the past decade or so is a different issue--and a valid one--but it has nothing to do with fans being owed anything.

    Without him, we probably don't have those stacked teams, probably not considered Americas Team, and probably looked at as chumps in the NFC East, trophy wise.

    I can't agree with this at all. If there are no fans to watch the games and buy the stuff then there is no NFL period. They do owe us because we make it all possible for grown men to play a game for a living that makes them rich and famous rather than work a crummy job.

    BTW, they were "America's Team" long, long before Jones appeared on the scene.

    They don't owe you anything because you can take your business elsewhere. You're not obligated to watch them.

    You tell me how the NFL makes any money without the fans to watch it. Can you do that? Zero fans to watch on TV to generate ad buys, zero fans at the stadium to buy tickets and merchandise. I'm all ears for your explanation.

    They can't, but it doesn't mean they owe you anything. It's like saying Irish Spring owes you because you buy their soap.

    Look, Jerry has a done crap job over the decade. We all acknowledge that, but he doesn't owe you anything.

    Of course the Cowboys owe their fans. You pay X amount of money for what they are selling. Anytime you sell a product you owe your customer. Period!

    Jerry inherited the "America's Team" moniker when he bought the club; we were America's Team long before Jerry Jones. But he's certainly doing his best to give it away.

    I've heard this nonsense for 15 years. Jerry will do whatever it takes to win ... including horrible drafts, pizz poor talent evaluation, extraordinary cap mismanagement, failure after failure after failure.

    ONE effing playoff win in 17 years. Pathetic.

    You don't have to buy the product if you don't like it. He doesn't owe us anything. When you buy the NFL ticket you buy it for all 32 teams. So the NFL is putting a good product on the field. You buy jerseys and shirts right? They are top quality stylish etc... Right? You are paying for a good product. Whatever the football team does in the field is not owed to us we can stop watching anytime we want.

    What bothers me is the implication that the Cowboys fans are magical fans, that they deserve better because their great grandfather caught a ball that bounced off Don Meredith's helmet. There's nothing special about Cowboys fans and the Cowboys don't owe you anything. Go root for another team, it's easier than ever to follow any team you want in the year 2013.

    Bills fans haven't even had a .500 season (the same record that Cowboys fans complain about like it's 0-16) in nearly a decade. I never hear anybody say Bills, Jaguars, Rams, etc. fans deserve better.

    It's hard to argue with what Skip says.

    I think Jerry is content with being a "show". Would Jerry rather the team win? Of course, but a whole bunch of money and all the attention in the world is a hell of a consolation prize.
