The Dallas Cowboys entered the NFL as an expansion team in 1960 and have become one of the most successful sports franchises in the world. Known as ‘America’s Team’ due to their large following outside of the Dallas Metroplex, the Cowboys have a legacy of success both on and off the field. Dallas is the most valuable team in the NFL with an estimated market value of $3.2 billion. They are also tied with Spanish La Liga soccer team FC Barcelona as the second most valuable professional sports team in the world trailing only Real Madrid ($3.4 billion). The Cowboys generate over $500 million in annual revenue that is also tops in the National Football League.
The Cowboys have also been among the NFL’s most successful teams on the field. Dallas won the Super Bowl five times, most recently in 1995. They have reached the NFL’s biggest game on eight occasions tying them with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most ever. They’ve won a divisional title 20 times and have made the playoffs 30 times. From the mid-1960’s to mid-1980’s the Cowboys ran off a string of 20 straight winning seasons with eighteen playoff appearances. Few teams have as many iconic personalities throughout their history including head coaches Tom Landry and Jimmie Johnson, quarterbacks Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman and running backs Tony Dorsett and Emmett Smith, among many others.
Despite this long running success, the team’s fortunes have slipped somewhat since the start of the 21st century. Dallas has reached the playoffs only four times since 2000 including only two NFC East championships in that time frame. The Cowboys’ haven’t won a Super Bowl or even an NFC Championship since 1995. After having only two head coaches in the team’s first 33 years (Tom Landry and Jimmie Johnson), the Cowboys have been through six head coaching regimes in the past twenty years. On the upside, they’ve enjoyed continuity at the quarterback position since 2006 when Tony Romo took over the starting role. The Romo era came on the heels of revolving door at quarterback as the Cowboys started 11 different players at the position between 2000 and 2006. All the while the team has never stopped being a moneymaking machine, but their fans are getting antsy for a return to success on the field.
Dallas remains one of the most popular franchises in the league, but not even ‘America’s Team’ is exempt from the NFL’s strict control over broadcasting. Fans will have no trouble finding the team on TV, but locating a Dallas Cowboys live stream is a much more difficult process. There are few options to watch Cowboys football game online through the league’s official broadcasting partners. Football enthusiasts willing to drop a few hundred dollars on the ‘NFL Sunday Ticket‘ cable package do have the option of streaming games. Unfortunately, the ‘Sunday Ticket’ digital platform is plagued by poor performance. Locating a Dallas Cowboys live radio stream is significantly easier. Live radio broadcasts can be found via Cowboys’ flagship station KRLD FM 105.3 which makes streaming available on their website. Dallas’ international fans are in the same boat as their American counterparts–the NFL has a worldwide TV presence with minimal streaming capability. Unless your only interest is to watch Cowboys video highlights online you’re out of luck.
