Sep 11 2017

Everybody else is. Everybody who has ever made a decision in law is. So why should it surprise us that when we adjudicate or the equivalent of adjudicate over a privilege that we've gotten in our relationship with players and we don't do it in a fair way. Why should it surprise anybody if we got slapped? It doesn't surprise me. You have to be fair.feedback

Sep 11 2017

I think every person that was part of the Cowboys was uplifted by the [judge's] decision. It was a good one. Although he was playing in this game no matter what, the idea that we could have him for an extended period of time was certainly inspirational.feedback

Sep 11 2017

We'd miss Zeke if we don't have him. That's all I can say. It's inspirational for this team to know we have the chance ti have him all year.feedback

Aug 29 2017

He has as qualified a people representing him as I've ever seen. They really have got the first team in there and so these are the kinds of things strategy-wise that you play as you see it. I know that Zeke's counsel and his direction has been thought through thoroughly and so I know that to be the case. As you know I am and should be taking the stance of not really commenting on this at this time from the standpoint of a personal role with the Cowboys.feedback

Aug 29 2017

On the other hand with what we are today and what we're trying to be relative to addressing it in the league, [it] has all kinds of issues and it should. It's a very complicated issue because you have no evidence here. That's all I want to say about it. But it creates quite a convoluted approach by Zeke's representatives and by the league that I really hate is a focus of all of our attention. I do, even though others would say that the issue needs this kind of focus and you're using the NFL for visibility.feedback

Aug 29 2017

Unfortunately you get confused in this conversation. Every person that has any benefit of all understands domestic violence and abhors it. On the other hand, I've had a lot of experience in this area. For 10 years before I bought the Cowboys I was the head of battered women of Arkansas. I raised more money and been in more safe houses than a lot of people that talk about it and so it's a terrible problem.feedback

Aug 27 2017

I don't want to go there. All I know, though, is I don't like the way it sounds. They'll take a look at it again tomorrow. If it were going to put him down, it'd be an ACL tear.feedback

Aug 19 2017

I wasn't really important to coach Broyles in what we're celebrating here today. Coach Broyles was totally essential to my life, though.feedback

Aug 19 2017

Forty-five years later, I'm in Dallas, Texas, and I'm thinking about maybe building a stadium. And when I was thinking about building that stadium, because of something that happened to me 40 years ago, I didn't have to ask, Who does that,' I didn't have to ask if it could be done. I already knew that. Coach, in his own way, had brought me in (the Astrodome) and we had looked at it.feedback

Aug 15 2017

I know he is driven. He is focused. If he can come out and contribute and have success, no one deserves it more than him. It's been real hard work and preparation, really overcoming his challenges. Nobody deserves it more than Jaylon. He has put that in and earned the respect of everybody associated with the Cowboys.feedback

Aug 15 2017

I'm excited. Very excited. Excited about his progress this camp.feedback

Aug 11 2017

I have reviewed everything, and there is absolutely nothing -- not one thing -- that had anything to do with domestic violence.feedback

Aug 08 2017

These things are tough for everybody. It's tough for the league. It's tough for the team. It's tough for the player. I think, at some point, you should be able to get the information in some sort of time frame that it doesn't carry on like this particular investigation has.feedback

Aug 04 2017

I don't want to basically be too, let's say, pro-active about how I feel because that's not going to make any difference here at all. What I don't want to do is hurt things about how I feel. So that's that. But I think that when you look at everything that I'm aware of, then I'm not anticipating a suspension.feedback

Aug 04 2017

I do not anticipate a suspension.feedback

Aug 04 2017

Someone's got to turn off the lights in the building at night. If I do that, am I taking someone's job or saving money.feedback

Aug 04 2017

My legacy in this league is that I'm going to be the one that unshackles the merchandise sales.feedback

Jul 26 2017

Let's not sugarcoat anything. I was pretty much being called a liar. As far as the whole situation went down, I was blindsided. I didn't know about a warrant that came about in the first place clearly because I wasn't the person arrested. The head person [in the Cowboys organization] I told, no one backed me up. No one had my back in the whole situation. I knew about it at what? 12:45 [PDT]. By 2:30, I'm released.feedback

Jul 26 2017

So when we do make a decision around here that's in the best interest of the team to move on, there's one thing you can forget about and that is whether you're being fair or whether you've given it consideration of what it means to the individual. That doesn't happen around here. Thank you, guys.feedback

Jul 26 2017

I'm not going to talk about Lucky. I'm going to talk about players. I've never talked to a player that I didn't have empathy [for]. If you all [media] have done one thing in my time to criticize me, it is how I will back up a player to a fault. You've done it. You've done it for years. I will back 'em up to a fault.feedback

Jul 23 2017

I can give you the same old excuses – young, aggressive, got a lot of energy. Hard to paint that picture of the days when it won't be this easy, they won't be as pretty and they won't have the money. Somehow you've got to paint the picture.feedback

Jul 23 2017

It's not a tolerance. There is no question that when you're not available, it hurts everybody counting on you, particularly our fans. There's no question the implication involved in any infraction shines on us all.feedback

Jul 23 2017

There's absolutely no impact on the spirit, or the enthusiasm or the expectation, which I would use those words in defining momentum and still not really know that I know what momentum is. You just can't let that deter going about your work and getting the job done.feedback

Jul 18 2017

Because of his style, personality, (he's) like a rock star wherever he goes in terms of attention. Certainly Zeke is evolving and being subject to needing to learn how to deal with the media and social media the way it is today.feedback

Jul 18 2017

Like all of us, we do good some days and don't do good the others. That's not to be confused with tolerating bad behavior or illegal behavior. That's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about just learning that your every move will be scrutinized and how in this day and time it will be looked at from many vantage points.feedback

Jul 18 2017

I don't want to speculate about any decisions from the league or any potential injury or lack of having a player available. Availability is a key. Ability is a key. But availability is a key, and we really do plan personnel-wise, we plan for a player not being available. That's just part of our DNA.feedback

Jul 18 2017

I think the biggest message is not one that has to be stated and that is your actions impact an entire team, it impacts an entire fan base. There's a lot of responsibility there. Then I think to the team it's a reminder of the interest that's in your actions and your behavior and it's not dissimilar from the message that you have when you sit down with a child and a young person when you're talking about how they represent everybody. The message is really pretty simple and it's one that you would naturally see: try to think about your activities when you're involved in them.feedback

Jun 06 2017

We're going to try to do the best we can to be a good community neighbor.feedback

Jun 06 2017

I don't feel it's appropriate [for YCI] to bear the burden of solving that problem for the community. If the industrial complex wants to figure out a way to solve that problem, then we will be a part of that.feedback

Apr 13 2017

He shaped the league with instincts, wisdom and a soft-spoken velvet touch. He was a steward and a guardian for the growth and popularity of the NFL, because he loved the game so much.feedback

Apr 03 2017

I would have to say that the Raiders going to Las Vegas was just a reflection of how much the NFL thinks of the future, with all the pluses that are involved for the NFL. It certainly was not a deterrent for that decision, that part of it. But there are so many other things to consider there. And it has caveats regarding that in the agreement. I would just look at it positively, that it just reflects Las Vegas and that gaming was not a deterrent at all, as witnessed by the vote.feedback

Apr 03 2017

Las Vegas has evolved into arguably a family destination. It has. That's not your father's Las Vegas. They are a great community that has tremendous prospects for the future. We are very comfortable because of really our precedent relative to being in other cities that have gambling nearby. The sensitivity toward the perceived integrity of our game is very much there. But Las Vegas did not in any way compromise that …. I know that the NFL is very comfortable that we haven't compromised anything as to our stance on gambling or gaming by going to Las Vegas.feedback

Apr 02 2017 - Marijuana

I'm just aware of all the circumstances here. I would want our fans to know that I'm very aware of all the facts and the details and been aware of it since training camp and not one thing has come up or surfaced that in any way gives me any concern that I actually to my mind put to bed at training camp.feedback

Apr 02 2017 - Marijuana

I don't want to get ahead, because that's obviously somebody other than me, but I'm well aware of all of the circumstances involved there and have felt good about it since training camp. And have seen nothing that in any way would make me think any differently than we felt shortly after it became a point.feedback

Mar 30 2017

We're not faced with any kind of deadline issues. We're working together, going over what will make this work, what's good for Tony and what's good for everybody concerned. That's not an issue. Tony took care of that last year. He was wonderful. And so those aren't issues. Dak's not fragile in any way. He's just not. And Tony's been wonderful about this entire thing. He's doing great. He's really doing great. He's got a lot of options.feedback

Mar 28 2017

This is the offseason. We're not missing doing anything. From the standpoint of the franchise and the Cowboys, nothing is being held up here at all. We're on great terms. But I certainly don't want to represent anything as to how he feels. But I feel good about how we're doing, we being the Cowboys, me and Tony. I feel very good about it.feedback

Mar 14 2017

Not one thing has come up or surfaced that in any way gives me any concern.feedback

Mar 13 2017

He's got a high tolerance for ambiguity.feedback

Mar 06 2017

We can't have agreements without it being within the boundaries of the NFL, but when you've got a situation like we got, we'll do the do-right rule. That's it. That is it. Very important. We do the do-right rule. We have that kind of relationship.feedback

Jan 30 2017

Randy is someone that I respect and admire greatly. He is a man who understands the fundamental responsibility of being a high school football coach, and that is to build character and shape young lives. He teaches integrity and life lessons as well as he does the X's and O's, and he is very successful builder of character.feedback

Jan 17 2017

I really believe that Tony Romo will play in a Super Bowl. Now try that one on. I know that if he's healthy enough, he'll be in a Super Bowl. I strongly believe that.feedback

Jan 17 2017

There's several cards to be played. Don't think for one minute if you see something written or something said about what and where Romo is going to be relative to our team that there's any credibility to it.feedback

Jan 15 2017

I thought we were a team that was capable of taking this thing all the way. I know we are now after that second half.feedback

Jan 02 2017

You see a camaraderie. You saw, just to start with, No. 9 and No. 4 and you saw really how genuine it is for them to be working together the way they are and really how exceptional that their situation is and how we're benefiting from it as a team.feedback

Nov 25 2016

You see him run by a secondary player and then when he puts that stiff arm on there, you quit worrying about him a little bit.feedback

Nov 24 2016

You know you're talking to someone who knows how hard this is to win 10 games in a row, and I do. I know how we're getting it done, and we're getting done by hard work and Dak's a great example.feedback

Nov 17 2016

I believe Tony will be the quarterback on a Super Bowl team. I believe that strongly. We're talking generic now, and I have no plans for him not to be part of the Dallas Cowboys. Not a consideration.feedback

Nov 17 2016

Rolando is really somebody who helped us when he was here, but I really don't want to get into when or if he might be joining us. Yes, he does want to play, but there is more detail that I'm not going to get into right now.feedback

Nov 17 2016

I just have to really pinch myself we are in that shape with Dak Prescott playing at his level and Tony Romo healthy and ready to go. He is competing. He is getting the snaps. The team is getting used to him. He's getting ready to play.feedback

Nov 17 2016

I really don't want to sit here and think that we got two quarterbacks ready to play and one of them not be ready because he didn't take some snaps out there. I think in this particular case you can't afford not to have Tony ready.feedback

Nov 17 2016

What you saw the other day in my mind was him turning it on. He is vested completely in being a part of a winning team. He wants to do any and everything he can do. The old adage is if we asked him to be the water boy, he wants to drown them with the water.feedback

Nov 14 2016

He's evolving and actually performing at a level that is very inordinate, eight wins is inordinate for our team.feedback

Nov 14 2016

I think the longer he plays like this, the more we have a chance to have another win. Everybody here wants to do one thing and that's win. And there's nobody that would introduce any other issue or any other consideration than doing what it takes to win the game.feedback

Nov 09 2016

The key thing that I want to emphasize that we probably are never going to have this totally sorted out. He's really got to be ready to go at the top of his game. We have the luxury of getting him that ready.feedback

Nov 06 2016

Everything that I know regarding Zeke's case, makes me satisfied that we don't have issues.feedback

Nov 06 2016

We've got a great luxury and wonderful problem to have.feedback

Nov 06 2016

Me and Tony have a great relationship. I don't think this team or anybody even worries about that. We come in stay focused and just try to win no matter who's back there.feedback

Oct 16 2016

You just couldn't ask for more inspiration from a player because everybody on this team knows what a difficult position that is to play.feedback

Sep 19 2016

He's like a sponge. ... He has an overachiever attitude about soaking it up.feedback

Sep 15 2016 - Samsung

I would trade those values for some more first downs, or some more touchdowns.feedback

Sep 15 2016 - Twitter

Had we been having this interview when I bought the team, and I was sitting there holding a glass of water, I would have been shaking so bad I couldn't have held the water. I was worried.feedback

Sep 15 2016

Here in Dallas, that muffled sound you hear in New York is me screaming in that pillow. And by the way, I'm up on Dallas's tallest building maybe thinking about it. So, I don't get over it, it makes me sick.feedback

Aug 31 2016 - Ford

Our Cowboys fans are among the most passionate in all of sports. We are proud to partner with Ford and Texas Ford dealers to bring this Cowboys edition F-150 to our incredible fans.feedback

Jul 18 2016

When it's the caliber of fight that Canelo Alvarez and Liam Smith is, that's a big deal and what I've tried to do since we built this stadium is have the great sport events.feedback

Jul 18 2016

Canelo is a hero in Mexico. With the draw and the support that Canelo has as a Mexican, then I think that we'll really take it out the top.feedback
