Default Jerry Jones takes shot at Texans fans?

Seems as though when talking about his new stadium during an interview, he kinda round about took a shot as us as fans. Hmm..

While I never get into the running war between the two cities Dallas stinks and Houston is great, so what is there to fight about? I thought some of you might be a bit peeved at the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, regarding his latest statement vis--vis Houston.

"The Cowboys have never been about checkered tablecloths and boots and hats," Jones told the Los Angeles Times. "They've been about glitz and glitter. Leave the other stuff to the Houston Texans."

My question is: Was he taking a shot at Houston, which might tick all of us off, or just the Texans, which would put him in a long line?

Not about boots and hats? What the hell do real Cowboys wear?
That's a damn big hat and boots on Rowdy there.

Who knows..? The guy is a snake oil salesman mixed with a latter day PT Barnum. Part of me thinks he was intentionally trying to stoke an in-state rivalry, which so far, has been pretty one sided.

On the other hand, it's virtually impossible for me to take him seriously as a result of his freakish similarity to Miss Jane Hathaway from The Beverly Hillbillies.

"Glitz and glitter" is usually the kind of lanquage one uses when he takes a shot at another. You know, kinda like saying someone is "cheap and shallow".
But ole Jer, being the hick from Arkansas that he is, seems to think its a
cool or stylish compliment he's paid himself.

Skeletor shoots himself in the foot when trying to take a shot at the Texans.

Glitz and glitter? That's just embarrassing - especially for a FOOTBALL team. I'm just fine with boots and tablecloths, thanks Jerry.

McNair chuckled when he read the quote.

“I’m not offended by what Jerry said,” McNair said with a laugh. “I’m glad he knows we’re the Texans. I’m proud to be a Texan and a Houstonian.

“It reminded me of Judge (Roy) Hofheinz when he was promoting the Astrodome in the ’60s. I don’t think it’s always about glitz and glitter. Houston’s a hardworking city, and the Texans are a hardworking team. I don’t see anything wrong with checkered tablecloths, hats and boots.”

Yeah Jerry you do have glitz. Leave the dancing to the cheerleaders please? I'm starting to remember why I hated the Cowboys...just like I hate the Titans....the owners of their teams(some obnoxious fans too).

He was talking in context of the new stadium and refering to the Texans and Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo partnership at Reliant.

It was still a dig.

Most annoying Cowboy fans won't be able to afford the PSL and tickets so he has to sell it as a luxury.
