Five Years After The Dallas Cowboys Fumbled It Away, Cowboys.com Is Now A Male Dating Site

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.

When it came time to buy the domain back in mid-2007, they balked at paying their own winning bid of $275,000 because of a miscommunication. 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.

Eventually, the site sold at auction for about $100,000 more than what the Cowboys would've paid. Since then, the site has basically gathered dust for five years. But this morning, a press release went out, proclaiming a new mission for Cowboys.com, as a dating site geared toward "gay & straight dating people looking to find themselves a cowboy."

"We are extremely excited to have decided on a direction for this property. Gay dating is a primary target for this website however, we will also serve the needs of straight daters as well," said Darren Cleveland, President/CEO of City Advertising whom is part of the owners group.

And the site is now very much up and running, operating under the tagline "Find Yourself a Cowboy!"
