It's easy to think that by 2007, most professional sports teams had figured out this whole Internet thing. Yeah, funny thing about that, since one of the great examples of dot-com incompetence occurred back then, as Jerry Jones and his Dallas Cowboys organization could've snagged Cowboys.com and been operating under that domain for all these years. Now? Not so much.

So pretty much the same thing: a place for faggots on the internet.

Likewise, Dicks Sporting Goods should invest in a few extra domain names. I found out that one the ....hard way.... once.

Hunchback Mountain basically wrecked the image of a Cowboy as something associated with manliness - this story only confirms it.

It's not even that much. Typically, you can register and renew dot com domains for around $10, even less with a registrar's discount coupon.

The first time I’d ever heard of Dick’s Sporting Goods is when they bought a regional chain here in Southern California, Chick’s Sporting Goods. True story. I like to refer to the rebranding as “the sex change”.

Full disclosure: I’m a lifelong (and therefore perpetually suffering) Cowboys fan.

But this article is very interesting. In 2000 I was working in a business analyst position at a (then) very large data mining firm. Part of my job was to research the top money-making websites.

Cowboys.com was #1. Playboy.com was #2.

Not seeing the big deal, I guess.

DallasCowboys.com takes you to the Dallas Cowboys site.

DetroitLions.com takes you to the Detroit Lions site.

Lions.com takes you to some random, unrelated site.

Jerry is a dumb ass. If the Cowboys are “America’s Team”, America is doomed.

Ummm. Wrongo! If Obama gets another four years, America is truly doomed. We can live with the Dallas Cowboys being America’s Team.

Sounds like when Chick’s merged with Dick’s it became Chick’s with Dick’s.

A company I worked for had a domain name they had used for years set to all the company computer homepages through the servers.

Flash forward five years and three mergers down the road, they let the domain lapse.

One morning every computer in the office with that site still as the homepage of over 250 employees had a porn site first thing in the morning!!

It was quickly changed.
