NFC & AFC Champions: Generic Domain Names

7

The AFC Championship and NFC Championship games were played tonight, pitting the New York Jets against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Chicago Bears against the Green Bay Packers.

The NY Jets use NewYorkJets.com for its website and the Pittsburgh Steelers simply use Steelers.com.

The Chicago Bears use ChicagoBears.com and the Green Bay Packers simply use Packers.com.

As you are probably aware, the two teams with the team name .com domain names won their respective conference championship. The Super Bowl that will be played in Dallas will feature a matchup of Steelers(.com) vs. Packers(.com).

If only the Dallas Cowboys had acquired Cowboys.com…. although they still can by using Sedo.

    When you consider the enormous cost of their new stadium, acquiring Cowboys.com for low 6 figures would have been such a great long term investment for the team and fans. It was truly a lost opportunity.

    As pointed out, maybe not too late.

    This again, I think its clear they don’t need it or want it. Didn’t you just touch this issue not long ago?

    I also think the way it was aquired has possibly turned them off altogether. What other teams use is irrelavent, also I wonder how many tickets they won’t move for the SB because of not owning cowboys.com LOL

      Re-read the context… I was kidding. I don’t think their crappy football team would be improved and thus make the Super Bowl by buying Cowboys.com. šŸ˜‰

    Interesting.

    I went to http://newjerseyjets.com/ and there is a splash page saying the domain has been seized by court order.

    I gave Steelers.com to the NFL in 1998. They were actively trying to acquire team names back then. I really didn’t believe I could have kept it but the lawyers seemed to appreciate the gesture. I believe they were also negotiating Panthers.com at the time and I would love to know what was paid for it. Still can’t believe Cowboys.com is not being used. It would at least be a great site for the wild west and would be fun to build out.

    Cowboys.com is currently looking for a new home. No doubt you’d have fun building it out. :)
