A Consumer’s Guide to the Texas Lemon Law
In light of the putrid effort put forth by the Dallas Cowboys in their most recent NFL game against the Green Bay Packers I feel that the citizens within the state of Texas and the supporters of the franchise have a right to demand their money back. Either under that state’s Lemon Law or under their statutes with regard to other areas of consumer protection. Granted , you might well feel that this is a futile gesture ? But clearly after this latest and woefully inept display by the Cowboys. Their fans must feel rightfully aggrieved that they’ve either got to pay and watch this drivel or actually attend to watch the home games in the team’s brand new multi-billion dollar edifice. It has now come to be known as …..’The House That Jerry Built’ . And for a stadium that was in part publicly financed. The citizens within the greater Dallas area should have a right to feel aggrieved and angry at their local politicians.
However, unfortunately for Jerry Jones, what’s now being housed inside that edifice in no way,shape or form resembles an NFL franchise. You’d make better use of the facility, housing the homeless within the state of Dallas. Rather than, having this Cowboys’ team continuously ridicule itself with the thought that it is indeed a competitive NFL franchise. They’re no more closer to being competitive in this league than the Cleveland Browns, the Oakland Raiders, the St Louis Rams, the Detroit Lions or those sorry ass Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Isn’t it bad enough that those teams mentioned are a combined 6-38 ? Whereas, the hapless Cowboys are 6-3 within the NFC East division. But as evidenced by their display in their 17-7 loss to the Packers. The difference between the Cowboys and the aforementioned teams with that combined record mightn’t be as far apart as their records might suggest.
And while we’re now discussing the Cowboys , I for one would like to see a stop to this idiotic banter by the idiots within ESPN and Fox, who continuously try to regale us with the fact of how great a quarterback, Tony Romo really is. He’s no closer, to being a great quarterback than Clay Aiken has a chance of being enlisted as a US Marine. And if ever, that situation were to arise, then I for one won’t believe until I see it with my own friggin’ eyes. LOL,LOL,LOL !!! Clay, I know you’ve got a boatload of devoted fans. But you’ve never been cut out to do manly things.
And though there’s a remote possibility that should the Cowboys fall short of their endeavors of making the playoffs and then winning the Superbowl. Failure there and most certainly Jerry Jones would have to rethink the issue of firing Wade Phillips and his entire coaching staff. And oh yes, that would include the heir apparent in waiting, Jason Garrett. All the perceived hype over him, is about as relevant as awaiting a new release of a film release by Jennifer Aniston. Looks good on paper but fails to meet the expectations or the needs of the critics or the box office. And the same can be said as to the creativity of Garrett and the Cowboys’ offense. One moment they’re up and the next. Well , let’s just say we’ve all seen a much more spirited approach taken to the game and how it ought to be played. Don’t look now Tony but your plight is seemingly just as inescapable of that of your former teammate, Terrell Owens. The latest of which , was that Buffalo Bills‘ coach Dick Jauron was fired today by the organization. And to think, that TO hadn’t imploded as of yet , there in Buffalo ?
One of the primary reasons for the Cowboys’ lackluster display is the very fact that they’ll play down to the level of the opponents they’re facing. They are not a team that can find that happy medium that they can play two games straight of consistently good or great football , as all the great teams seem able to do. The Dallas Cowboys, as does Jerry Jones , simply marches to beat of their very own drum. And unfortunately for the Cowboys, either they’re tone deaf or simply put they’ve no rhythm whatsoever ! My own feelings are , it’s a little bit of both !
Defensively , the Cowboys really haven’t got a problem that can’t be fixed. They are one of the better defensive units around the league when they set their mind to it. However, it’s on offense where they far too often have their momentary lapses. And where Romo gets besides himself and starts to scramble around like a headless chicken. Once in a while, he might make an extraordinary play while scrambling around in the pocket. But more often than not, if he doesn’t look like the aforementioned chicken. Then there’s the possibility that he begins to look like an inebriated drunk falling all over himself whilst trying to unzip his fly. I don’t know if I could put it anymore succinctly than that ?
Of all the players on the Cowboys’ roster, if ever there’s a player whom I feel, that they’re ought to be a certain amount of complaint can leveled at. Then, it would have to be Roy Williams. One of the team’s array of wide receivers. He’s been about as productive as the members of Congress during one of their seasonal sessions. A great deal of talk always follows about what they’d like to see get done. But yet, in the end absolutely nothing ever gets done. And it’s been the same way in that regard with regard to Williams’ productivity , since he’s put on a Dallas Cowboys’ uniform ! And once again, when the blame is leveled squarely at him. Williams looks to apportion it elsewhere. Much like that of his former teammate , Terrell Owens has been known to do.
Any similarities there, you think ?
This I do know, and having never been a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. I’d rather the team live up to its obligations and expectations. Rather than now looking at them as a fraud because that’s essentially what Jerry Jones and the organization has been perpetrating on the consumers of the NFL and the residents there in the greater Dallas , Ft Worth area for more than a decade. The funny thing is we have laws against such things in order to protect the consumer. But somehow no one seems all that bothered to enact it. I wonder why ? In your eyes are the Cowboys indeed a version of the ‘lemon law’ ? Or quite simply just an NFL franchise that has been continuously over-hyped by the print and television media alike ? The chances are it’s been a little bit of both , with regard to this particular equation.
