Cowboys.com gets a interesting makeover

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...7232--nfl.html

I remember when the Dallas Cowboys football team was too cheap to buy the name and backed out out of the deal. Maybe they can buy a link on the site.


Cowboys.com is now a gay dating site
Shutdown Corner – 3 hours ago

If you were looking for the team take on the Dallas Cowboys after their Sunday 16-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, you may have gone to Cowboys.com to do so. And if you did so, you would have been rather surprised to see what website popped up. The debacle actually started in 2007, when the Cowboys organization had a winning bid of $275,000 on the Cowboys.com domain name but didn't pay up due to an internal miscommunication.

From DomainNameNews.com, back then:
"The domain name brought in a $275,000 bid from a phone-in bidder at the recent TRAFFIC domain live auction in Hollywood, Florida. The bidder had been earlier identified to be a representative from the Dallas Cowboys NFL team. An inside source confirmed with DomainNameNews that the deal began to fall apart over a misunderstanding with the bidder on what the bid of "275″ actually meant. It appears the bidder thought they were buying the domain for $275.00 rather than $275,000". The site sat for several years, but now, the owners of the domain have set things up.

rest of the story at yahoo link..................................

Re: Cowboys.com gets a interesting makeover

I read somewhere recently that Qinton Terrentino was considering purchasing this name at an undisclosed price tag.

Cowboys aren't what they used to be. All because of 'Brokeback Mountain'.
