Next Time Cowboys Fire A Coach Mid-Season, They Will Likely Check Domain NameS

Because someone failed to re-register the domain name, the Dallas Cowboys website disappeared from the interwebs on a big day for Cowboys-related news, and site visitors instead saw a screen like this. The marketing office must be in between interns.

The site is back up and running, but for a while on Monday, www.dallascowboys.com was said to be available for purchase from Network Solutions LLC. And although the team and its marketing director, Jerry Jones, Jr., were somehow notified of this minor issue, it can take up to 48 hours for certain servers to process the renewals — so you, too, may still be screen-grab-eligible. Most of us can breathe easy, however. Cowboys press releases and hard-line editorials such as Josh Ellis' "Players Deserve The Humiliation Of Phillips' Firing" are once again available online.
