With the possibility of San Antonio getting an NFL franchise on the table, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t sound too worried about losing fans in the area.

Jones’ message is clear: San Antonio, as we know it, is a Cowboys town. The team has called the River City their training camp home off and on for years, and he believes this has gone a long way in solidifying the relationship between the Cowboys and the people of San Antonio.

So if a team wants to move down there, Jones is just fine with that. But, he says, they should be ready to see a lot of Cowboys blue.

“Well if they go there, we have a plain suburb called Plano, Texas right outside of Dallas. There’s a higher percentage of Cowboy fans in San Antonio than there is in Plano; 97 percent,” Jones told PFT Live last week. “So it’s a great hotbed for us down there, we do a lot of things down there, we train down there.  So if they go down there they’ll be surrounded with a lot of Cowboy fans and that’s good, that’s good. The main things I’m interested in is the fans in San Antonio getting all the football they deserve to get.”
