I have to root for them tonight because I want Minnesota to be on top of the NFC North but I have a really hard time when this happens. My dislike of the Cowboys goes back a long way and even in these situations I find myself cheering when whoever they're playing scores or comes up with a great defensive play.

I'm not a fan of Chicago so rooting for them to lose is not difficult usually but it's easy to root for them when they play Green Bay. Not so much when they play Detroit but cheering for them when they play the Cowboys just FEELS wrong!

For you Cowboys fans though, I'm on your side tonight.

Calabogie (surprised at the Vikings this year)

I'm a Cowboys fan from my days living in Irving about a 1 mile from Texas Stadium back in the 70's...

having said that I can't stand Jerry Jones and I love it when they show the press box when the Cowboys are getting beat and he looks like he just swallowed spoiled catfish...

Bears will win tonight in a low-scoring, sloppy game dominated by the defenses.

The only way I could ever stomach rooting for the (hack, puke) Cowboys is if it put the Steelers in the playoffs. Rooting for the Cowboys is like rooting for the Devil. And Jerry Jones should be hung.

I have lived here for awhile, and I am no closer to being a Cowboy fan than the day I moved here. Just.Can.Not.Do.It.

Folks in Dallas have these incredible expectations for the team every year, eventhough the team has done nothing since the mid 1990's. They seem to forget that there are over 30 other teams in the NFL vying for the same goal.

Lose a game?.....HEADS MUST ROLL!! WE ARE HORRIBLE!!

Win a game?? WE ARE SUPERBOWL BOUND!! KICK A$$!!

No sense of moderation. The the local sport radio stations just adds fuel to the fire.

Oh man, the fan base here is really annoying.

"Folks in Dallas have these incredible expectations for the team every year..."

Isn't that what the fan base of every team should be all about?
Cheer through the pain of losing, and continue giving rousing support?
As for Jerry Jones, the fan base is not "all-in" on him any more than
Redskins fans are all-in on Snyder, and Jerry Jones jokes are more
popular in Dallas than anywhere else.

If you're a fan, you're behind your team——win or lose. Why else would the
long-suffering fans of the Lions, Bucs or Bills keep going to their games?
Look at poor Calabogie. Although still bitterly depressed about all those
times Tom Landry's team knocked Bud Grant's boys out of the play-offs, he
remains in firm support of his team.

Excuse me. The Bucs have won a Super Bowl in this century, unlike those joke franchises in Detroit, Minnesota, Buffalo, and Dallas.

Ah, so your group of millionaires can beat up my group of millionaires, huh? Seriously, does your life really change if the Bucs go 0-26 or 16-0?

While I enjoy sports and take pleasure when the local franchises do well, it's only a game and my life will go on regardless of how they do. I don't wrap myself up in their exploits that much.

YMMV.

Thanks for sucking the life out of the thread, Captain Buzzkill. Of course everyone (except psu) knows that it's just millionaires playing games and that nothing much changes at the end of the day, regardless of the results of these games. That doesn't mean that it's not fun to rip on other fans.

Good point. There may also be some octogenarians lurking who would like to talk about the Cowboy glory hole days.

They still would have been old during the Cowboys' last wins, which would also mean that they could actually remember a Lions or Eagles championship.

Admittedly, I've been bouncing between Tiger baseball and MNF, but it doesn't seem like the Cowboys are putting up much of a fight. Is that the way the game has gone down?

1975, that's the year I started to dislike the Cowboys. I probably would have gotten over it if it hadn't been for all that "Americas Team" garbage their PR firm put out. During the heyday of the "Americas Team" media blitz, the Pittsburgh Steelers were the dominant team in the NFL and they were the epitomy of the working class hero. Unfortunately for them the Cowboys had a MUCH better PR firm and the help of the sports media.

I have been a Vikings fan for 44 years and plan to be one until the day I die. If there's an afterlife my plan is to put time on hold outside of Vikings games so I can watch 24 hours per day. I may just haunt the Cowboys a bit for fun though.

BTW, I don't believe in piling on when the chips are down so my sympathy goes out to you and all Cowboys fans today. The one question I have (and have asked many times) is why the sports media keeps saying that Romo is one of the "elite QBs" in the league. He's better than average most days but he's certainly not one of "the elite."

I never blamed that on the Cowboys, I blamed the Vikings brain-trust for that one. The most insane trade in the history of the NFL, followed closely by the Ricky Williams trade.

I know the reason, but you need to pay attention because I'm only going to say it once. Ready? Here's the reason:

A lot of the people that work in sports media are idiots.

He is good to very good, but is prone to brain cramps at the most inopportune times.

Unlike the Cowboys, the Steelers have never been big at tooting their own horn. They'd rather just kick your ass. And often they do.

Any adjective better than "good" when used to describe Romo is an exaggeration of the highest order. The only thing that matters in pro sports is results. And Mr. Romo does not achieve good ones.

Hell, I'd settle for one in the past 50 years.



Or next 10...

...I'm even willing to take a mere SB appearance in N'Awlins this year as opposed to that joke of a city in Jacksonville.

"The Bucs have won a Super Bowl in this century, unlike those joke franchises in Detroit, Minnesota, Buffalo, and Dallas. "

There are 32 teams and there have been only 11 SuperBowls in this century. Kind of hard to fit everyone in.

Of course, in the previous 25 years Dallas won four and the Bucs won... oh, that's right, none.
