The Dallas Cowboys(the NFL team) can still be found at DallasCowboys.com, but the team has been trying to retrieve the domain name since 2007 when they placed a bid for $275,000 to acquire the name. The team reneged on the deal because they thought they were making a bid for $275, according to Domain Name News. The name eventually sold for $375,00 to a group of investors who are hoping to capitalize on the name and the popularity of gay rights and marriages to get traffic to their site.
During a conversation with the Huffington Post, Darren Cleveland, one of the investors for the site believes that Cowboys fans still may find a benefit in mistakenly logging on to the wrong site. “Considering that the website actually serves the interest of gay and straight people, maybe they’ll take action,” he said.
