Dallas Cowboys and the “Moneyball” of Football

This is a great little video for all the Moneyball enthusiasts.  MoneyBall has been one of my favorite books for many years.  This book tells the story of Billy Bean and the ascension of the Oakland A’s in the ’90s.  Little did I know that there was a football equivalent to this story that took place much earlier – back in the 1960s.  

As an up and coming franchise, the Cowboys needed a way to establish themselves.  Long before there was a Moneyball or a Billy Bean changing the way sports are managed, there was a struggling Cowboys team and forever changed the way sports were managed.
