Meh. This sort of stuff happens in other businesses all the time. Nobody protested when Harvard threw a buttload of money at psychology prof Steven Pinker and got him to ditch MIT.

Speed, you compared Parcells to a Harvard Professor. That is funny.

the only team that really got "screwed" by the tuna are the pats... but i think they're just fine and dandy with how things turned out in the long run.

Really, the Giants haven't even made it to the NFC championship game since Parcells left.

LOL! Yes, how quickly we forget. They lost, so I guess I erased it from my memory.

And...T.O. wasted no time in bashing his old coach again...

"I am just hoping his retirement brings promise to what the team has to offer," embattled wide receiver Terrell Owens told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Monday. "This past year was a big letdown. On paper we were as good as anybody we played against every week. The end result didn't show that. Our play was not indicative of what we could have done. What we should have done. Hopefully, the owner will hire a coach to take the team to the next level."

He also, of course, went on to say how he wasn't utilized in the offense enough. That he wasn't the number 1 reciever and that effected how he played. And that it isn't just him, but everyone see's it. Yet, TO was top ten in looks or thrown too stats.

The big dog has stepped out, so now Owens feels like he can say something. What a tool.

TO is a douche no doubt. I'm sure Jerry Jones will give him a call. After all, TO didn't exactly have a great year and the Cowboys are paying him a lot of money.

I also hate to see guys leave a team where they fit in very well and have a chance for glory to go to a team that doesn't just for a few extra bucks *coughedgecough* Now he's rotting away in Arizona while the other two triplets are going to the Super Bowl. Is he kicking himself? I would be. I know I'm poor, but to me what difference does a million more make? 5 or 6 million, you're still rich, isn't that good enough? I'd take the glory the team loyalty, but like I said, I'm a poor sucka.
Tell that to Pat Riley.

Well, maybe some of those 15 drops he had could have helped his team out a little bit. I can't wait to see who Jerry Jones and TO hire for the new coaching job...and then I can't wait to find out what is wrong with the new coach according to Mr. Owens.

I'm pretty sure Parcells is glad he doesn't have to deal with TO anymore. Jones should get rid of TO.

I have always said, I've only known 2 real Cowboy fans in my life, I do respect their support for their team (even though I hate it) but not the bandwagoners who have left a bad taste in my mouth, and are 98% of the "Smellboy" fans I have known.

You know, before maybe last week, I can't say that I've ever heard the Cowboys referred to as the Smellboys.

I don't think this phenomenon is unique to the Cowboys, but, it does seem to be more prevalent with bigger name teams, at least in my experience. But, I know a lot more than 2 Cowboy fans, and I live nowhere near Dallas.
