They never would have had to sell if they changed their team to this.

Here is a good article showing how Snyder single-handedly drove that franchise into the ground. The only thing he was not responsible for was the location of FedEx Field.
Snyder even did this, which I had not heard before:

I lived in Dallas in the 70’s and 80’s and they had “Cowboy Flyers” - busses that would leave from several places around town…when one bus filled, another was brought in…even if there were only 2 or 3 riders - The Cowboys loved that - even though they were missing out on parking revenues - the number of people buying overpriced Pepsi’s (no alcohol in Texas Stadium - and Pepsi was an official sponsor) more than made up for lost parking revenue. I went to pretty much every home game from 1976 thru 1985 and never once drove there.
