DDM I got your back. There is nothing like watching cowboy fans flee a bar when there is 30 seconds left to go in a game, the 'boys are down by 9 and its a no-hoper. Especially after all the twang-smack you could endure for the early game.
Then Raider Nation walks in and takes their seats. But hey, at least the cowboy fans pay their tabs, raider nation just runs out without paying
Damn. And they say i'm cold

Phil that is the result of a large television market and the NFL blackout rules working just like they planned. The reason there are so many cowboy fans around the country is two-fold; 1) either you escaped from that god-forsaken place and have a degree of team loyalty OR you are a miserable front-runner. Which one are you. Trust me when I say the newtorks would put a paint-drying challenge on tv if they could get 30-40 million viewers. The reason people like to see the cowboys lose is because there is some degree of reveling in a miserable front-runner's misery that people like. Not jealousy
I was raised in Central California, and I still live here. I am 49 years old, and have been a Cowboys fan since 1966. Don't seem to fit into either of your little scenarios, do I? Could it be that you are wrong?

And now to your second point. I don't think you've thought this out well. The reason the networks put the Cowboys on is because people watch ... unlike when the Bears are playing.:)

And one other observation. Either the Bears coach gets fired, or he fires Grossman, or the Bears coach gets fired and then the new coach fires Grossman. Must be tough rooting for a team that has it all together except the key spot and the Coach won't make any changes! I feel for you.

Phil, I'm with you. I'm 35, born and raised in DC, and have been a 'Boys fan since 1978. Never supported any other team, never wanted to, and never will. And fortunately, my son is following in my footsteps...another Cowboys' lifer!!! Unfortunately for him, he's never witnessed greats of the 70's or the dynasty of the 90's (he's 10) but he has never wavered in his faith and will defend the 'Boys to no end when confronted.

Phil You are right about the Bears organization...clueless since papa-bear died. You may want to reconsider the latter of the 2 categories, it might fit, maybe not miserable but a front-runner nonetheless. You were probably an AFC fan (Steelers & Raiders) in the 70's but you would not be a 49er fan after what Montana did to the 'Boys. But life was good in the 90's again right? Here's to hoping the East is a dogfight this year and the winner doesn't fumble their way out of the playoffs. Still laughing at that one

I am first and foremost a Cowboy fan, and have been since 1966. I did enjoy watching the 49rs when Montana played for them. Obviously I hoped the Cowboys would win if the two teams were playing each other (and obviously I was disappointed a time or two).

No, I haven't like the Steelers since Bradshaw played for them. Can't say I'm crazy about any AFL team, but I have a lot of respect for the Patriots orgainization, and I expect them to be the team to beat this year.

I'd love to see a Patriots-Cowboys Super Bowl. But then I don't know anyone whose ever predicted who ends up in the Super Bowl. I do expect both teams to be leaders in their league.

I like a lot of teams. I am a Cowboy fan though.

I also dislike a few teams. I dislike the Giants as long as Coughlin is the coach, and I dislike the Eagles as long as McNabb is their QB. Well, I dislike the Eagles period, with or without McNabb.

I tend to dislike teams if their management is stupid or if their players are out shooting guns at people in bars or similiar conduct. If they tolerate it, they endorse it. Simple.

I like the Raiders back when they had a QB. That's been 30 years. I dislike strongly how their fans act. And I think that their owner is living in another era. But I digress ...

I liked Chicago only one time, and that is when McMahon was their QB and they had a coach I liked. I do like their coach now, but do not understand his reasoning. Their QB would not even have a 2nd string role elsewhere.

And don't laugh to much at how the season ended for the Cowboys. Don't forget who got them to that position and who put them in the position of trying to win the game in the final moments. I strongly believe the defense has been adjusted correctly, and I expect big things from Romo and the rest of the offense.(Anyone is entitled to a mistake).

Thats what I like about true fans Phil, they know how to move-on. There are approx 60-80 offensive plays in a game, some will be great, others will be stinkers.

This is where we differ, Philip. I have ONLY liked the Cowboys, but I do respect some of the above-mentioned teams. I disliked the 70s Steelers, 80s & 90s Niners, 85 Bears, and any and all Skins and Eagles teams. I've never had the disdain for the NYG like the other teams in the division for whatever reason.

We have different kind of guns out here. I shoot a 300 and can knock something much larger than a human down at 550 yds. Its kind of hard to conceal though. Last thing I shot was a bear. How ironic. Anyway, have a g'day

If you think that I am a frontrunner, then you are on something. I've been a fan of only one team and have so stated. It doesn't make a person a frontrunner to enjoy watching someone play who is good at what they do. Watching is not the same as rooting for, and I don't wear anyone's colors, as I think it's moronic.

I would take Donovan as my QB any day. He's a truly gifted player and leader.

I think Romo is smart, and I expect he might become a bit of a smiling assassin in the next few years.

I'm thinking Dallas, Philly, Washington, Then NYG.

New Orleans will be the team to beat this year. I think they upgraded significantly.

Incorrect arvada. The correct term is "bandwagoner"
