Eric Rice Organizes Purchase of Cowboys.com

has been transferred to its new owners, an LLC group that snapped
up the domain in the recent Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C.
East silent auction for $370,000. That domain was part of a
flood of completed auction sales that dominate our new weekly top
By now just about everyone on the planet has heard the Cowboys.com
story - Sports Illustrated magazine even wrote about it. It originally
looked like the Dallas Cowboys had bought the domain for $275,000
in the Moniker/T.R.A.F.F.I.C. live auction but the NFL team then
claimed they thought they were bidding $275 instead of $275,000!
So Moniker put the
domain back up for sale in a silent auction where the winning group
outbid several other new suitors to take the name for $95,000 more
than the football team could have had it for just days before. As
ESPN's Chris Berman would say - FUMBLE!!

organized the purchase. Sahar Sarid of the Recall Media Group is
a member of the LLC that bought Cowboys.com.
He invited his fellow co-owners to a party at his South Florida
home after the deal was closed and has posted a couple of videos
from that event at his Conceptualist.com
blog that we think you will enjoy.
"Its kinda like dollar cost averaging in the stock market.
Would you rather own 1 or 2 good domains or 5% of 100 great domains,
all being managed and developed by proven industry leaders?"
