I am sure this does not make Jerry Jones very happy.

The domain is forwarding to Network Solutions with this statement.

If you are not the current registrant for this domain name and want to register this domain, you may place a backorder. There are no upfront fees and no risk to place a backorder.

The Cowboys do not have a strong history of intelligent domain management:

Maybe they can go back and get cowboys.com now. The site is basically nothing but a "This Premium Domain is for Sale" notice.

All my registrars have a check box to allow autorenew billing besides that fact they start reminding me 8-6-4-2-1 weeks beforehand as well.

Looks like someone's on the ball now (so to speak). The domain has been renewed through 2020. :)

Not quite so many reminders from mine but pretty well the same. For any sort of corporation I guess one problem over reminders would be using an individual's mailbox rather than a group one for this sort of reminder and the individual leaving.
