A pretty bizarre story really. Cowboys.com was up during the TRAFFIC live auction. One of their attorneys was a phone-in bidder, bidding ‘$275′ – the auctioneer assumed $275,000, whereas the attorney was thinking $275.00
This is a perfect follow up to the Bobcats.com purchase, where the NBA team paid $50,000 for the domain.
Even more interesting is that Cowboys.com supposedly has a TM. And supposedly is the first domain ever granted a TM.
So where do we go from here? The Dallas Cowboys are far more of a global brand than Bobcats will be. The domain cowboys.com gets an estimated 2,000+ visitors a day. And here they expect to pay $275.00 for it?
Oh you fools.
