LINK Two weeks later, and the rumors and the doomers continue to surface. National speculation centers on Big Bill not being pleased that his locker-room chapel will now be fouled by the football devil himself, Eldorado Owens. In other words, blame it on Jerry. I read it twice this week in dispatches from the NFL owners' meetings in Orlando, where Bill Parcells was again a no-show. The only coach in the league who wasn't in attendance. Who knows if there's any truth to Jerry Jones and Parcells reaching a Splitsville crossroads on the issue of Eldorado? But the rumors and doomers will persist until Parcells finally steps up and gives his answer. When Bill made himself unavailable for the Owens media conference two weeks ago at Valley Ranch, the Cow sheep quickly sprang to Parcells' defense: He never attends these signings. But this one, of course, was like no other. Obviously, Parcells should have been there. When he wasn't, that left Owens' arrival ripe for speculation. Either way, however, it doesn't matter. Parcells has no wiggle room here. Like it or not, Eldorado is now permanently attached to Big Bill's hip and coaching résumé. If he didn't want the troublemaker, then Parcells should have gone to the wall with Jones. Just say NO. And what if Jerry wouldn't take NO for an answer? Easy answer. Quit.
