    The seller of the Cowboys( Bum Bright) and Jones met prior to the deal being finished and it was agreed that he (Bright) would tell Landry about the deal and be the one to terminate Landry prior to Jones taking ownership because Jones didn’t want to be the one to terminate Landry.

    Subsequently Jones met with Jimmy Johnson for dinner at a restaurant on Stemmons Freeway near downtown Dallas. A reporter saw the two and broke the story that Jones was buying the Cowboys and Johnson was apparently the new Coach.

    Bum Bright had not gotten around to telling Landry about the deal when the story broke. Landry actually never got a notice from anyone nor did he meet with anyone about the ownership change. It was an unfortunate set of circumstances but the stories from the media plastered the headlines that Jones fired Landry.

    Could be but I think it was after the story was out and Neither the former or new owner ever met with Landry.

    Landry was on the golf course when the story broke.


    Regardless of who did or didn't do what Jerry has never hinored the past, imo. At least not without public pressure. It was always about his guys and now its about his way.

    What do you mean? Jerry flew to Austin and fired Landry himself.

    No. Jones never met with Landry. P1 said Schram went to Austin and met with Landry. Are you saying Jones went to Austin?

    Perhaps this is the story you are referring to.

    I might have misspoken, but I think Tex and Jerry might have both been there, with Jerry delivering the news.

    You initially said Landry was fired about 5 minutes after Jones bought the team and it didn’t happen that way. The meeting was after they tracked him down and I don’t know how long that took but it wasn’t the same day as memory serves me. It wasn’t at a planned meeting because Landry took off upon hearing the news they had to find him to talk to him. That’s why I said it really didn’t happen the way a lot of people thinks it happened.
