Cowboys make tentative plans for training camp

At a time when a couple of franchises (the Ravens and the Jets) have scrapped plans for an off-site training camp, the Dallas Cowboys tentatively have picked a starting date.

Per the San Antonio Express-News, via CBSSports.com, the Cowboys plan to start practicing at the Alamodome on July 29.

Equipment will be moved into the facility starting on July 25, three weeks from today.

Though the development doesn’t mean that camp definitely will occur, the news is encouraging — especially since Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is in the thick of the labor negotiations.

Speaking of the negotiations, they start again tomorrow.  And if they spend less than 18 hours a day, every day, working on a settlement, we’ll spend more than 18 hours a day, every day, pointing it out.

OK, we won’t spend that much time pointing it out.  I just liked the sound of that.

  1. No matter where the train they are still a 5 win team.
    No QB No D-line non O-line I might be a little high with 5 wins.
    I got to wait and see.

  2. Mike reads his tea leaves even on the 4th of July. Of course, they aren’t anymore reliable than any other day. Mike, this stuff is getting old. My tea leaves say that on Christmas day you will write about TO and Santa Claus having a drink together and take that as a sign that training camps will open on Jan 2nd.

  3. Don’t worry, the rest of us will spend the extra time pointing out our grievance with their work ethic while you guys rest.

  4. I’m not one for counting unhatched chickens, but even I have to admit that’s one of the more positive signs yet that this thing is drawing to a close.

    When did Kevin Malone dye his hair and start playing for the Cowboys?

    Ha, i was trying to figure out who that guy looked like. You nailed it. Does his co-worker behind him have a crossword puzzle under his helmet?

    No QB? Still Romo haters everrrrywhere. Cowboys haters are the worst haters in all of sports. Ignorant buffoons.

    If Jerry does go all in with this training camp it could be he has changed his tune. It only takes 6 owners to stall the process and he is the key keeper.

    Jerry Jones wants to go back to the days of who has the most money to buy a Championship days. I think the salary cap has made the NFL more competitive and loved by more fans. Revenue sharing has made the NFL what it is today and Jerry is not a fan of that policy.

    Now I’ll probably be called a socialist in this hyper-political climate we are in. 🙂

    I am sure the cowgirls was drafting before the
    GREAT DETROIT LIONS
    That tell me the Lions had a better team.

  9. To anyone that thinks Jerry is what is holding this all up. You are insane. He was instrumental in getting the salary cap in place to begin with back in the day.

    “That tell me the Lions”

    Well buddy, that phrase tells me that you still haven’t mastered the English language at even a grade school level. I’d say keep trying, but I know you will regardless.
