The Cowboys’ latest controversy, which led to the NFL commissioner announcing he would be stepping down after just two months on the job, has been a huge story in America and the world.
So why is the league, the world’s largest and most popular sporting league, so quick to distance itself from its most famous football team?
The Cowboys’ tweet from Saturday night that referred to former player and current ESPN host Chris Pratt as a f—ing gay “s—” is the latest in a string of controversial comments made by the team over the past year.
It is the kind of thing that would never have happened if the team hadn’t been an institution.
The Cowboys, after all, were founded by two men who were openly gay and that the team’s ownership had previously refused to sponsor any gay-themed clothing.
The Cowboys have been criticized in the past for their reaction to the controversy.
In a recent interview with ESPN.com, owner Jerry Jones blamed a lack of media coverage on a lack and said the team didn’t have time to prepare.
“We’re not a television network,” Jones said.
“We’re a media network, and we have the time to be prepared.
We have the media to prepare, and there is time.
We don’t have the money to be in a position where we would have to go out and do a whole bunch of interviews.”
Jones said the Cowboys “were just in a panic” and said “that’s what happens when you have that kind of money.”
The Cowboys are not alone in their struggles.
In fact, the Cowboys are one of the few NFL teams that has consistently maintained a public image and a fan base that is staunchly loyal to the franchise.
They also boast one of sports’ biggest television deals, which is the largest in sports.
But as ESPN..com’s Mark Maske reported Saturday, the NFL has been under increasing scrutiny for decades.
The league has come under intense criticism in recent years, including from the league’s own president, Roger Goodell, and former commissioner Paul Tagliabue.
The latest controversy began when ESPN.tv, a subsidiary of ESPN that does not broadcast Cowboys games, published a story about the tweet.
The story detailed how the tweet referenced Pratt’s homosexuality.
The ESPN.TV story did not specify the source of the tweet and Pratt did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
But Pratt’s spokesman said Pratt was “shocked and disappointed” by the article and had reached out to the team.
The source of Pratt’s tweets is unknown and has not been made public.
The tweet by Pratt was in response to a tweet that said he had been called a f—— homo by a Cowboys fan in a locker room.
Pratt tweeted the tweet on Saturday, a day after the Cowboys’ 20-10 win over the Eagles.
In the tweet, Pratt said, “He [the Cowboys fan] had called me a f—– homo and I’m sure I’m gonna get the s— he got me on Sunday.”
The tweet sparked widespread condemnation.
The NFL has since apologized to Pratt for his “inappropriate language,” but the team has maintained that its position on gay rights is not a stance.
The team’s commissioner, Roger Bannister, has said that he is “deeply disappointed” in the tweet by the Cowboys.
But he has also made it clear that he doesn’t consider the tweet to be a violation of the teams policy.
In his statement on Friday, Tagliabe said the league is “a leader in diversity, inclusion and inclusivity” and that it is a “great honor to be able to be the Commissioner of the National Football League.”
The statement did not address the controversy surrounding Pratt.
The backlash against the Cowboys follows a similar controversy involving former ESPN host Melissa McCarthy.
McCarthy, who is also the host of the “Saturday Night Live” series, was fired from the show in February after the show reported she used homophobic slurs during a recent episode.
