Who wouldn't want to see a Dallas versus Dallas Super Bowl ... in the City of Dallas?

Uh...the rest of the United States of America?

As long as Jones owns the Cowboys 2 things aren't happening:

1 A second team in Dallas

2 A team from Dallas playing in the Superbowl

A second team in Dallas? Holy Lamar Hunt, Batman!

Someone needs to tell Jerry "Everything is bigger in Texas" Jones and the mayor of Dallas that the largest metropolitan area in the EN-tire United States in terms of land area is...Jacksonville, F-L-A.

That may be, beaverboard, but you really can't compare the two franchises. Jacksonville has actually been to a conference championship this century.

Remember that game vividly. Lost the game because the coaching couldn't figure out a way of stopping the opponent running the same play 8 or 9 times during a single key possession. Thought they would grow and become stronger as they had a solid albeit superstar void lineup but they faded instead.

They were good enough to win a Superbowl that year otherwise.

The next NFL franchise will be a second Jacksonville area team. The Loretto Leopards.
