Is it because he's so powerful? So rich? So over-the-top passionate?
Or is it because he's won three Super Bowls? Built an unprecedented stadium that is gobbling up sports? Or kept his team popular, relevant and "successful" despite only one playoff win in 13 years?
Whatever the reason, while Dallas loves Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, the rest of the world apparently hates him.
