Jerry Jones has always had a tumultuous relationship with Cowboys fans. For about a decade now, fans have felt as if they team should be better than they are, given the popularity of the team. I mean, they’re “America’s team”, after all. And they are also chronic underachievers.
Yesterday, while playing in Dallas, the Giants jumped out to a 23-0 lead before mounting a comeback that would ultimately fall short. During that 23-0 deficit. Jones was seen on the jumbotron a few times and each time he would booed soundly. But it sounds like he’s used to it. However, it had to be a terrible feeling for him, knowing how much he spent on that building, for his own team to boo him at home.
“Well, I’ve been to boo school, so to speak,” Jones said. “Seriously. That’s certainly, I’m sure the fans had the same feeling I did. I was frustrated. I knew that we had dug ourselves a hole that was going to take super effort to get out of, but I understand it.”
Asked if he understands the frustration, Jones said “yes” twice before adding, “There’s never been a honeymoon for me here in Dallas.”
