Jerry Jones explains official silence on tragic event

IRVING — DeMarcus Ware was in Abilene with his wife when he first heard the news.
And not long after he saw the wreckage of the Dallas Cowboys’ collapsed practice facility at Valley Ranch he had the same reaction that so many had, but few have thus far shared:
“I thought, ‘If you build a building for the weather, shouldn’t it hold up against the weather?’?” he asked. “It was really a disaster. The whole place was flat like a pancake.”

On Wednesday at a Cowboys corporate sponsorship golf event, Ware along with a handful of his teammates commented about the tragic events of May 2 at the Cowboys’ practice facility.
