    Maybe I’m wrong, but I think a significant portion of the cap pool is based on ticket prices and sales. I could see that aspect coming under pressure. TV revenue would likely continue to rise as it has historically for at least a while.

    I'm sorry this virus will come to an end as you said nothing last forever. This is a small setback not a new normal, if it does then we would have shut down for flu season and we don't

    That is your perception not a fact, but then you don't put your butt out of the field taking the punishment.

    People that hate and ridicule the Cowboys still watch. Jerry has gotten rich off of the haters.
    What happens if the contract does work out and Dak becomes great. What will you have to post about then??

    Jerry wants to do it his way and for him the Cowboys is a pure business..i am sure he wants to win but making money is his top priorities which is fine with me.........I just won't buy his merchandise nor i will be stressed if they don't win

    The silver lining is some other team's forum will have to deal with your ridiculous threads that you start 11 times/day.

    IF I post, it would be about the usual stuff.
    You misunderstand me. I am not hoping Dak fails. I think he's a great athlete.
    But I think he will fail because he hasn't shown the ability to be a franchise type quarterback who possesses the leadership skills and the talent to produce when the pressure is on.
    I wish I could be more enthusiastic. But I just don't think he's the guy.

    Dak will be paid by Jerry. We will not win a SB. Nothing will crumble...see the last 25 years. Even lesser franchises have been sustained with no rings and few playoff success so why would we crumble now?

    First based on this rant I don't think you're much of a fan now or ever. Here's a little something to think about as far as why the Cowboys will ALWAYS be America's Team. Since the Cowboys haven't won a Super Bowl since Super Bowl XXX they still get the maximum number of prime time games every year. They are a staple to play opening weekend on Sunday Night Football. They play the vast majority of their games other than the noon start time slot and their games are seen by the majority of the country. Why does the league and networks do all of those things, because people either love the Cowboys or they hate the Cowboys but they all watch them to either watch them win or hope they lose.

    You are also like all the other Prescott haters that want to blame him for every loss over the last 4 years and all the losses that will happen while he's still here. Even though many or most of those losses the defense and special teams and injuries played parts in those losses, that just doesn't fit you Prescott hating. We've heard the same fair weather fan whining going back to Danny White and then with Romo. No I don't think Prescott is the greatest QB ever but I also don't think he's anywhere near as bad as the Prescott haters try to paint him

    You talk about being a passionate fan but all you've done is show yourself to have contempt and being a fair weather fan. You should take note of Cub fans who stayed loyal for generations waiting over a HUNDRED years for a championship. I know this will be contrary to your way of thinking but I have been and always will be a Cowboys fan, win lose or draw. I haven't and will not threaten to become a fair weather fan like you and stop being a fan because the Cowboys did not win the Super Bowl. I will be disappointed but I won't stop being a fan.

    Here's a huge flaw with your thinking. Prescott's team mates DO think he's their leader. They say in the huddle that nothing seems to shake him and has complete control of the huddles.

    Let this **** boy hit FA. I’d rather take a down yr with Dalton and draft a QB in 2021, then pay a massive contract to an average player. He’s not worth it.

    I believe Jerry will pay Dak even if he has to swallow his pride. He wants a championship and thinks he is close. A 4 year contract will take him into his 80s. I don't think he wants to waste more years than necessary to get a QB in place.

    I think your living in a dream world. Cowboys will still be the biggest sports team in the world if they sign Dak or dont sign Dak. If Dak plays great or plays bad.

    Somethings are just bigger than we can understand. Cowboys, Yankees, Manchester United, Lakers ..etc

    My guess is Cowboys could go 0-16 s straight years and still be the biggest ratings team in the NFL

    If they don't draft or aquire some talent at the QB position within the 2 years then yes.

    here's my answer to those that say Prescott is just average. Before free agency started it didn't matter which website you went to, NFL, ESPN, Foxsports, CBSsport, they all had Prescott ranked as the number 1 free agent and just average players don't get ranked the number 1 free agent.

    I agree with you but you need to get even more macro view on this.
    We are America's team in name only. We have lived off our reputation for 25 years. When was the last time this team went to a championship game? (January 1996)..... Just think and ponder that point for a few minutes...... I have a couple hundred posts stating how Jerry does not care about winning the SB, he just cares about going between 7-9 & 10-6. As long as we are the top story on First Take, Unidisputed, ESPN, the game gets flex to SNF, Jerry is happy. Guys & Gals that is the absolute truth. He has 3 SB's, HOF, 5 Billion dollar franchise. He has won the game of life. All of our crying wont change a damn thing.

    So having said all of that, I don't care about Dak, one way or another. To me I would rather spend my money on Cam (can be had very cheap)& Jameis (gone)before paying 40 million to Dak. But I will be labeled a Dak Hater... which I am not a I felt the same way about Romo. Romo didn't win a lick here in Dallas. He was a good qb in a great QB era. When he retired, I was a bit sad but then realized.. .What are we going to miss?
    A fumbled Snap in a playoff game? Gigantic choke against the Gmen? Losing the last game of the season with the playoffs on the line? Two playoff wins? Dak is functionally equivalent to Romo. Do you think the Rams paying Goff was a good move?
    The Jags bailed on Foles, The Titans will regret paying Tannehill. Niners paying Jiimmy.?
    On one hand the cost of doing business with a QB has substantially gone up, so either we suck it up and pay or move on with it.
    Do you think Seattle regrets paying Wilson? No, GB paid Rogers, Mahomes.. Chiefs would pay him 50 if they could, Watson will get paid.
