It wasn’t Wade Phillips' fault.
After a 1-7 start, the loss of Tony Romo and firing of head coach/scapegoat Phillips, the Dallas Cowboys forgot about one last problem -- their website.
Dallascowboys.com is the second-most visited NFL-approved portal, trailing only NFL.com in popularity. It was down from Sunday to Tuesday morning, the same days Wade Phillips’ job status was the hottest topic in sports.
According to The Dallas Morning News, the team simply forgot to renew the domain for dallascowboys.com. It was actually up for sale on Sunday night, but Jerry Jones Jr. finally paid the $9.99 to renew it for the year. There was a very real possibility of someone else grabbing the domain name, but the Cowboys got lucky and no one proved to be quick enough.
