    Sounds like Tom (and certainly Alicia) never forgave Jerry. That certainly does have to do with morality and is not "nonsense".

    Believe me, you will not find a bigger detractor of Jerry Jones than I. His ego has this team stuck in a quagmire of mediocrity.

    That being said, Jones was not the only person to blame for Landry's end in Dallas. Yes, he handled it as badly as a man can handle it, especially the press conference that night. And, yes, he was a bit on the cold side when it came to his revamping of the organization and ticketing processes.

    But, if you profess yourself to be a Christian, shouldn't you be above a grudge? Isn't the phrase, turn the other cheek? The ticket example listed in the book was ludicrous.

    It doesn't bother me that Landry didn't root for the team after he was fired - that's his choice. I can point out the issue with holding a grudge until his death, though. It wasn't like Landry didn't fire players and coaches in his career.

    The team was in a decline after 1988. It had just had a 3-13 season. What did people expect?
