It’s time for another in a series that I’ve started here, sites that wish to see a new GM in Dallas.
The reactions to each of these sites have included a mixture of support and disdain from readers of each site, as well as on other sites like www.TheBlueAndSilver.com where a member was threatened with removal from the site for posting his link. Also on www.LoneStarStruck.com where I was graciously allowed to present www.FireTheCowboysGM.com to the readers as a new contributor to the site. Thanks go out to Kelly Horn and Joe Decaro for the extra rope.
It seems that most people are in favor of sharing the idea, even if they don’t agree with it. Personally, I can think of a few good reasons not to support these sites if I were to only follow their presentation of the goal. But I choose to see it in my own way, and that has gone a long way in gaining my support for the removal of Jerry Jones as the GM of the Dallas Cowboys.
You can find my posts on the other sites in my Featured Sites archive, which where this entry is placed as well. Meet www.CowboysFanRebellion.com, brought to us by a co-owner of www.DallasCowboysCentral.com. You can also catch their mission statement on the CN.net Forums.
Their primary goal is the same as the others I’ve written about here, even encouraging people to sign the petition. They have another way of trying to accomplish their goal though, and it’s a tad beyond what I expected to see. They are asking fans that are fed up with the GM to donate to their fund, a fund that will be used to purchase a billboard ad at Valley Ranch that will display the message loudly and clearly to the Cowboys Owner. He is the only one who can make this happen. The recommended donation is at least $10, not a bad price to pay if you want to get in on the action.
The image above is a representation of what the billboard might look like once they’ve gotten enough donations collected, and I’ve got to admit that it’s a nice idea. The exposure level has been growing steadily the past three weeks for these sites, and this is just another example of how well received this movement is among many fans.
