CANTON, Ohio — Cowboys fans seem to be the dominant force in the stands at Fawcett Stadium.
They’ve cheered for everything that moves on the field in a Cowboys’ uniform during pregame warmups. Some of their biggest ovations, though, were for the man who emerged from the locker room under the bleachers in the south end zone wearing the dark blue sport coat, gray pants and sunglasses: team owner and general manager Jerry Jones.
He commanded rock-star status, with the Cowboy faithful chanting, “Jer-ree! Jer-ree!” and begging him to pose for pictures and sign autographs. He signed a few, but kept most of his focus on his players on the field.
A member of the Hall of Fame security staff just introduced himself as the man who will be in charge of escorting Jones to his booth in the press box after warmups.
