John C. Maxwell, the famous author and speaker, once said, “There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. ‘Good pride’ represents our dignity and self-respect. ‘Bad pride’ is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.” Chris Lowe, the English musician and songwriter, broke it down like this, “Stupidity combined with arrogance and a huge ego will get you a long way.” Then William Pollard, the physicist, put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.”
Well playas…the arrogance of bein’ a billionaire that won’t listen to a boy in Dallas is to think that what you did yesterday and the day before will be sufficient for tomorrow. Just in case you duns are confused about who I’m talkin’ about, I’m talkin’ about the cat that owns the Dallas Cowboys that has refused to listen to reason since 1989. On Sunday everybody and their baby’s momma’s momma, Ms. Jackson, was hollerin’ about ole boy havin’ no choice now but to start Dak Prescott over ole dull Tony Romo after the Cowboys went up to Lambeau Field and beat the brakes off of the Packers 30-16. You and I know that that makes sense but Jerry Jones doesn’t think like a rational human being.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Jerry could give two dead flies smashed about what makes sense bruh. He never has. Winnin’ in his mind is about makin’ money first and winnin’ football games ONLY if it’s done his way. He’d rather lose games if he’s not makin’ the decisions and NOBODY is gonna tell him any different.
Bruh…the Cowboys went years without even winnin’ a darn playoff game let alone a Super Bowl all because Jerry wanted it that way. Why? Because nobody was goin’ to tell him what to do. Let me break down the history of this cat and the Dallas Cowboys.
In 1989, he purchased the joint from H.R. “Bum” Bright for $140 million. Shortly thereafter, he pulled his first power move by firin’ long time head coach Tom Landry, to that point the only coach in the team’s history. And the dun was winnin’! He then hired his old teammate from the University of Arkansas and former University of Miami head coach, Jimmy Johnson. If that wasn’t enough he forced out longtime general manager, Tex Schramm, and assumed complete control over all football operations. Tex knew what he was doin’! Why? Because he was winnin’!! But Jerry’s been the Wizard of OZ ever since.
After bringin’ in Jimmy Johnson the Cowboys won back to back Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993 but the followin’ year in 1994 Jerry fired him! How does a cat get fired after winnin’ back to back Super Bowls? Well, I guess it’s easy to lose your job when you’re workin’ for a clown that wants all of the credit! If someone else gets the praise for winnin’ then he’s got to go!
Put your seat belts on for this one homeboy! He then brings in former University of Oklahoma coachin’ legend Barry Switzer. Within a year they win yet another Super Bowl in 1995 but good ole Jerry got jealous of the attention that his head coach was gettin’ so he fired Barry too! Well, maybe both Barry and Jimmy told him to get out of the way and let them coach and he couldn’t take it.
So let’s fast forward to today! Everybody with half of a brain and some lent in their pockets knows that it only makes sense to keep Dak in the lineup as the starter. Why? Because he’s winnin’! Tony Romo has crazy skills but he’s not a winner. He doesn’t have the “IT” factor. But because everybody’s tellin’ Jerry what to do he’s naturally goin’ to go in the opposite direction. Why? Because you can’t tell him what to do.
He’s Donald Trump bruh! Everybody in his campaign has been tryin’ to tell him to stick to the script, don’t go off of message, listen to us. Naw my brother, he’s got too much bread to ever listen to someone worth less money than he is to listen to them. In his mind he’s sayin’, “I’ve been successful because I didn’t listen to anybody.” That’s Jerry Jones!! The Cowboys are worth more than $3 billion! So he’s callin’ the shots regardless of what anybody thinks. What he doesn’t understand is that he knows nothin’ about managin’ a “football” franchise from the football side of things. He’s NUTS when it comes to makin’ bread. However, he’s the owner, president and general manager that refuses to listen to football people makin’ football decisions because he’s the only brain allowed to think in Dallas.
The sad part about it is that the Cowboys have unbelievably loyal fans. A Texan’s first love is football. Trust me I know! I’m one of them. I was born in west Texas. You learn how to hold a football before you leave the hospital! So he’ll bench Dak and start Romo and his dull loyal fans will watch the season go off of the rails and keep buyin’ tickets because they don’t know any better. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
4) Dull: adjective – to describe something as bein’ terrible, something that makes you sick with disgust because it’s so stupid to even think of.
