In February, scandal hit the Dallas Cowboys when ESPN revealed the story that the team’s number one PR guy, Richard Dalrymple, had been accused of using his phone to record four cheerleaders in their dressing room back in 2015, culminating in a $2.4 million settlement.
According to documents obtained by ESPN and people with knowledge of the situation, THE DALLAS COWBOYS paid a confidential settlement of $2.4 million after four members of their iconic cheerleading squad accused a senior team executive of voyeurism.
After what happened, the court awarded each woman $399,523.27. When the cheerleaders were changing clothes in the locker room, one of them claimed to have seen Richard Dalrymple, the Cowboys’ longstanding senior vice president of public relations and communications, standing behind a partition with his iPhone extended toward them.
Several eyewitnesses and a letter from the cheerleaders’ attorneys were able to piece together this timeline of events. Dalrymple used a security key card to unlock the cheerleaders’ back door and enter their locked dressing room.
DFW Head Coach Mike McCarthy Says “Stop” to the “Dak Prescott vs. Cooper Rush” Storyline
What Jerry Jones stated about a “quarterback controversy” was, in his opinion, just par for the course as a marketer.
Coach Mike McCarthy sees what he said on the “Dak Prescott vs. Cooper Rush” answer as par for the course.
McCarthy responded to Jones’ comments on 105.3 The Fan by saying, “Dak is our quarterback and we want Cooper to be as successful as possible.” “I suppose that’s where it ends,” he said.
Jones has never denied his fascination with being a football businessman, and how it stands right up there in significance to being a football guy.
As of late, he’s been quoted as saying, “We’re doing our job” if the Cowboys are consistently featured prominently in the news.
Soon, Dak will be returning. Rush will not go on an 11-game winning streak. Dallas will look to McCarthy to lead them to a victory on the road against the Giants on Monday night, and then the team will move on to the next challenge
The head coach provides a reasoned opinion on where they should proceed and where they must “stop.”
The Cowboys’ Coaching Staff and Players Are Not Convinced by Jones’s QB Claims.
Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has an affinity for high tension. he told reporters he would openly welcome the prospect of a QB battle between Cooper Rush and Dak Prescott.
In other words, he hopes Rush will perform so well that it will be difficult to decide who should start at quarterback when the QB1 is fully healthy: Rush or Prescott.
Jones’s suggestion that benching his $40 million-a-year quarterback would be thrilling and entertaining sounds a bit strange,
despite the fact that we can all appreciate the desire for this club to win games and the possibility that the backup quarterback might be surprisingly better than we all thought.
Even while the GM loves to stir things up and do anything he can to get fans in seats, the rest of the folks in this company aren’t buying into the mayhem.
After being asked about his general manager’s remarks, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy, who has dealt with his own share of the Jones controversy, was quick to dismiss them.
Rush went so far as to say that he and Prescott laughed out loud at what Jones had stated to the press. At least now everyone knows what kind of jokes to expect from Jones.
At the end of the day, everyone in the building knows that Prescott is the starter. McCarthy thinks Jones understands it too, despite his comments:
Clearly, everyone in our locker room and everyone in the building, Jerry (Jones) included, knows Dak is our quarterback, McCarthy said. Cooper’s success is important to us. So, I suppose that’s the end of it.”
There is already too much pressure on this club to consistently win. They undoubtedly do not need any additional drama, especially from members of the organization.
But as long as Jones is the proprietor, things will remain unchanged.
