Yes, according to the widow of the legendary Cowboys coach who says in a new book that Landry was so disgusted by Jerry Jones’ treatment of him during and after his 1989 firing that he spent the rest of his life rooting for Big Blue instead of America’s Team.
Alicia Landry claims that, shortly after the coach was dismissed,
the luxury suite the Landry family had been given free by Murchison when Texas Stadium was constructed in 1971.
Shortly afterward, the book says,
Landry’s eldest son
was informed he would
no longer be able to buy
the six season tickets at the 50-yard line that he had purchased every year the stadium was open.
Classy move, Cowboys.
