ONN – NFL Football, 2007 NFL Draft Talk About Jerry Jones With Wade Burch At Merchants NY Bar And Restaurant
On Thursday, April 26th 2007, Wil Mara, Bill Chachkes, and I headed over to an establishment called “Merchants NY” after the NFL Media Lunch at Chelsea Piers. There, in the cigar bar, we met Wade Burch, the executive chef at Merchants and a man with an interesting background.
Wade Burch severed as chef for EDS Founder and CEO Ross Perot, Tom Landry, the first Head Coach of The Dallas Cowboys, and Jerry Jones, the current owner of the Dallas Cowboys. Over cigars, Wade told us exactly what he thought of all three men, based on his personal contact with them in his role as chef.
It was eye-opening, and provides a view to why former Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells may have left the Dallas Cowboys.
In the video, Wade starts by explaining that he wasn’t very happy with “The Tuna” as Parcells is referred to, in response to Wil Mara’s question. “I think he gave up too soon, but I think there were some mitigating circumstances we don’t know about. I can only know from having cooked for Mr. Jones 25-odd times and the way he treated me (and I was born in Arkansas) he treated me like shit. He tried to treat me like one of his employees and I wasn’t;. He’s not the sweetest guy.”
By contrast, Burch expresses complete admiration for Perot and Landry, two legendary figures in Texas pop-culture.
Burch’s rant about Jerry Jones gives a unique view into the inner workings of the Cowboys organization and essentially points the finger at the football organization’s head man — and not Terrell Owens — as the reason for the departure of Parcells at the time. This window may also explain why Jones has gone through so many coaches during his tenture as Cowboys’ owner. By stark contrast, Clint Murchison, the founder of the Cowboys had one coach — Landry — from 1960 to 1985, when he sold the team to a group led by H.R. “Bum” Bright.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
