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.

    Absolutely, that’s what I meant by saying that I didn’t totally agree as stated on your site and others, because a boycott in itself usually doesn’t work, else we might have gotten more done with the gas prices.

    But what you guys are doing with the billboard, and Robert with the petition, is taking action to get your boycott message out there that will serve just as well to grab Jerry Jones’ attention as well. That has some real value to it all on its own, and it’s the part that I see having the greatest impact, whatever that may end up being.

    There are lots of ways to get a new GM at Valley Ranch, even if his name is still Jerry Jones …

    Thanks for the promo, Bryson. It’s greatly appreciated.

    You’re right. It’s time. I believe now is a perfect time for a boycott. It seems fans across the globe are fed up. There are signatures on that petition from all over the country, even as far as Alaska, Mexico, and one from Saipan.

    To be clear, we don’t think the actual billboard itself will affect Jerry Jones one iota. What it will do, though, is get the URL out to tens of thousands more people. Bringing the call to boycott to a much grander scale. We will then have national attention and the traffic to the site will increase 100 fold.

    Again, mucho thanks.
