    Another state is another state . It doesn't pertain to you as you were born in Philly , but the Philly fans that live in Jersey aren't true homers

    Most philly fans I know live in south jersey . With your premise , shouldn't you be rooting for teams that play in NJ if you live in NJ ? I view sports as entertainment . I understand people rooting for their home teams and I think that's great , but it isn't as if those teams are made up of guys from your home state . The NFL is an entertainment business . As I stated , my brother brainwashed me as a boy and I like all of the teams he likes. This includes suffering as an Orioles fan . Stevegrab is right. The Cowboys have tons of haters . I have friends who like insignificant teams that flood my social media page the literal second the Cowboys lose . Its a part of being a fan of Americas team . I have enjoyed their glory years and I have diehard supported them throughout this entire drought

    Odd bandwagon to jump on since they havent cashed in since the 90s

    I said this about 20 posts ago
  9. Garrett done

    I was brainwashed by my older brother to like all of the teams he liked. It has been great on the Cowboys end..Not so much on the Baltimore Orioles end Like I said earlier . Americas team is an empty title. I get that . Clever marketing ? agree , but there is something to be said for not winning a title since the 90s and keeping that fan base and popularity

    Being a fan of a hard luck team doesn't make you a better fan as those who are fans of teams that have had overall success. I have been a Cowboys fan since I was a child . No matter how many years it has been since they have won a SB , I have never waivered in my support . I have had the pleasure of watching 4 super bowl wins( too young to watch 72) It is a loyal fan base . How else would you explain them still being Americas team with such a long SB drought ?

    Again, why would the networks flood you with Cowboys games ? Demand .
  12. Garrett done

    Ha ! I live in NJ. I know plenty of Jets fans . They are loyal . I was just twisting dcats titties. He obviously isnt the type to have some fun with on the boards

    Ok so we both agree the Cowboys arent a strong team. Hence they are chosen for primetime for better ratings to use your own words. What brings better ratings ? A giant fanbase . These are facts . You keep trying to attribute this to delusion and ego. I'm giving you facts . Top road draw in NFL . Most valuable franchise in sports. Facts .

    Americas team is an intangible irrelevant phrase . I don't understand why it upsets you so much that it is attributed to the Cowboys . Its sort of like in boxing when they talk about pound for pound. It is a phrase . It isn't a title that holds true value . and That they get more prime time TV than other teams is the only reason why the ratings are higher Proves my point . Why would a mediocre football team get more prime time games than anyone else ?

    I see you're a Jets fan, so I will weigh that into the intelligence curve here 2016 top road draw NFL 2017 see below 2018 3rd ranked road draw in all of sports . # 1 in NFL 2019 could not find the data but I assume you can see a trend here Keep in mind , these numbers are generated by Mediocre Cowboys teams. Agreed that we haven't been a powerhouse since the early 90s yet we are still a top draw . Saying we are the most valuable franchise in sports is irrelevant is complete ignorance . Popularity and your fan base generates revenue . Its certainly not just Texas homers generating these figures , its the nationwide fan base https://scholarblogs.emory.edu/esma/2017/06/17/nfl-fan-base-and-brand-rankings-2017/ https://seatgeek.com/tba/sports/these-are-the-visiting-teams-sports-fans-want-to-see-most/ https://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2016/8/5/12382996/nfls-best-and-worst-road-draws-cowboys-remain-a-top-road-draw-in-2016 I understand that it seems odd to call a team with limited success on the field Americas team , but they are . For every hater that roots for the Cowboys to lose more than they root for their own team to win , there is equal or more fans of the Cowboys . When my local teams are on primetime and their regular TV slot is open , id say 70% of the time , they put the Cowboys in that slot. They could put better performing teams in that slot , but they don't. Why is that ? So while you weep into your Namath jersey every night while abusing your privates , do so realizing that the Cowboys are now and always will be Americas team.
  16. Seahawks vs Eagles

    To be honest , I am not familiar with Buffalo Trace. I think I had it once at a friends house. good stuff ?
  17. Seahawks vs Eagles

    I would love that . I forgot to add Knob Creek to my list of bourbons that I like
  18. Seahawks vs Eagles

    My brother bartends at a nice Italian restaurant. I went there Christmas eve tp pick up a few things and he set me up with a few Blantons . So frigging smooth. When I am at his place ill do that or Angels envy. When I am paying for it , I do makers
  19. Seahawks vs Eagles

    Amen . I bite the bullet and go for makers but we are in the same ballpark
  20. Seahawks vs Eagles

    His faith in oxy
  21. Garrett done

    They are the most valuable franchise in sports . They are a huge road draw. They are a huge television draw . I agree with what you say about the wins , but the Dallas Cowboys will always be Americas team
  22. Cowboys likely to hire Mccarthy

    I would have preferred Kris Richard. I wanted us to go young and fired up instead of retread . Hopefully his experience helps this team of underachievers . I'm indifferent on the hire when I had hoped to be excited. Why the rush too ? We should have given others a listen
  23. Choke on a Carrot Garrett!!!

    I hear the Giants are interviewing Kris Richard. That's who I want for the boys.
