Dallas Cowboys Are Cheap And Dumb
The Dallas Cowboys organization participated in a domain name auction for the site “Cowboys.com”. The auction ended with the organization bidding $275,000 and they won the site. The only problem is, they thought they were bidding $275 for the name and now they don’t want it. The head of the auction site that had the name had this to say in a forum:
when I spoke to their attorney…he was dead serious, had no idea that it was $275K and was shocked when he received the purchase agreement ( he thought he bought it for $275.00 – thats right two hundred and seventy five dollars!). I almost asked him what he was smoking.
after falling out of my chair….not ever experiencing anything like this one, we are going to let this dog stay sleeping for a while. someone should pick this name up and it will ultimately cost the cowboys millions when they finish that $800M stadium they are building. I told the attorney that my guess was that they probably sell $275K in popcorn and beer in one game and that they were foolish not to look at their brand in a different way.
We find a way to turn dirt into diamonds anyway and this will be well past us.
Pretty dumb huh? HOW ‘BOUT THEM COWBOYS?!?!!!
Seriously, the domain name has got to be worth that much, if not more, why wouldn’t they want to lock that bad boy up? They’re paying more for Roy Williams and I’m sure he’s made less hits than that site would’ve.
