The Dallas Cowboys began their 2022 season by losing to the Tampa Bay Bucs. They managed just 3 points throughout the night.
The Cowboys’ starting quarterback Dak Prescott was injured and had to be replaced in that loss.
As Dak Prescott left the AT&T Stadium field, fans vented their anger at him. The online diatribe is even more fervent, with some calling for Jerry Jones’s sale of the team.
Even with these early season struggles Jerry Jones, the long-time team owner, expressed his support for the franchise.
During an appearance on 105.3 The Fan, the 79-year old owner stated that he would never sell the team.
#Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to fans frustrated “I’d be mad too” but says “I’ll never sell this team” and says he would be open to a segment on @1053thefan taking calls from fans. 🤣🤣🤣 also adds shuffling out GMs around the league isn’t the secret to success either. (Enjoy fans)

Jones is the Cowboys’ owner for more than 30 years.
Forbes has revealed that the Cowboys are the most valued sports franchise in the world, with a market value of $8 billion. This is one reason why he won’t sell the team. This is a good figure considering he bought the team for $150m in 1989.
In Sunday’s Week 2 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals, the Cowboys will be looking to bounce back.
