As if things couldn’t get any worse, the official Cowboys website was pulled off the grid Sunday, and when readers went to check on the status of former coach Wade Phillips on Monday, all they found was a generic page saying the site was available for purchase.

Actually, considering how poorly the season has gone, the disruption might not be the worst thing in the world for the Cowboys (Move along, people! Nothing to see here! Everything is under control!).

According to the Dallas Morning News, it appears the team simply forgot to renew the domain registration for The team quickly renewed the registration, but apparently, it can take up to 48 hours for all Internet service providers to recognize it. As of 9:39 a.m. (ET) on Tuesday, this is what you saw on the Cowboys official site.

Tell me: if you somehow won control of what kind of content would you put on your site?

UPDATE (1:54 p.m.): According to Darren Rovell of CNBC, the domain name actually expired last Tuesday (though the name wasn't actually put on sale until Sunday). How crazy is that?

And good news for Cowboys fans. The domain, which costs the team $9.99 per year, has been placed on auto-renew. So, unfortunately, we won't have another post about this subject this time next year.

I would have put that JPEG of Tony Romo and T.O. in that Brokeback Mountain movie poster spoof.  Ironically...the Packers broke Jerruh's and Wade's back last Sunday...maybe they should be superimposed on the poster instead lol.

If I had managed to get the domain name for $9.99, I would probably just have a picture of a turd on the homepage with nothing else. It would be fitting since a turd is all that the Cowboys have dropped in the laps of their owner and all of their fans this season.

Hilarious.  Foiled by a yearly fee of $9.99.  That's priceless.
