I am getting tired of people who never indicated, or showed, any respect towards Tom Landry, to keep bringing this up when talking about Jerry Jones. I never recalled any one in the media or the non-Dallas fanbase who said any thing nice about Tom Landry until he was fired, never.
Tom Landry and Jerry Jones resolved this and Tom Landry “forgave” Jones for this long ago, before Landry died.
It’s like these liberals who say that it was wrong for people to trash Bush after Bush left office, who now say conservatives should not talk bad about Obama.
I never mentioned Landry. I can’t stand Jones for merely being Jones.
As a Texan and growing up in DFW I always had good things to say about him and that era’s players. The press may not have had Landry’s back but most fans did but they reacted much like today’s voter. I was anxious every time one of my teams had to play them because I knew they found ways to win and spoiled many a team’s season.
Landry forgave Jones not because he deserved it but because Landry was a good man and put them team’s future ahead of his and knew the bitterness would harm him as well. Mark of a true God fearing man.
