New Cowboys Stadium Is Important
STORY TIME: Jones also regaled the crowd, which numbered almost 1,000, with stories of his early years with the Cowboys, including giving a candid assessment of some of the missteps he made when he took over the team, in particular the firing of long-time coach Tom Landry. “I did not recognize, and did not have an appreciation for, what Coach Landry brought to the tradition and visibility of the Cowboys,” Jones said. “That was a lesson well learned.” Jones talked about treating fans as owners, and the importance of sports in society. “We’re lucky to get to do what we do every day,” he said, “and I may be the luckiest of us all.” Jones, who was introduced by longtime friend Frank Broyles, the former Univ. of Arkansas AD, received a standing ovation.
