Dallas Cowboys Forget To Renew Domain Name

from the oops dept

The Dallas Cowboys are notoriously bad this year. As such, I'm sure they've got plenty of stuff to focus on, but it seems pretty bad that the team would forget to renew its domain name. It seems that DallasCowboys.com expired last Tuesday, and Network Solutions put it up for sale on Sunday. The team did eventually figure it out and got the domain back. While I have no idea what the team can do to fix its awful performance on the field, for its domain troubles, I might suggest it figure out how to "auto renew" domain registrations.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

    Maybe this was a Omen that the team should just fold up and call it quits.

    DFW Weather Warning

    The NOAA has issued a severe tornado warning for the entire Dallas/Ft Worth area. Eleven separate tornadoes have been sighted and more are expected. Everyone in the Dallas/Ft Worth area is urged to seek immediate shelter. Emergency shelter to be set up in Cowboys Stadium as there is no expectation of a touchdown there, ever.

    Sounds like a money-making opportunity here

    Just start selling paper bags with eye-holes pre-cut at the stadium entrances. You'ld clean up. Premium bags might even come pre-decorated. :)

    is this thing on?

    No! The reason the website was down was because the Cowboys cant string together 3 w's.

    (stole that from the radio)
