NFL  > Dallas Cowboys  > Facts or No Facts?
August 1, 2009, 05:50 PM
I found this image (if I did this right) the other day on the internet while reading up on the Cowboys. Some facts, if true, to ponder about, and if I knew who to credit this to, I would, but I've already forgotten where it was I found it. I thought the facts, if true, were interesting, to say the least.

Yea just the fact you are on my tail just shows me you are full of it that you don't hate the Cowboys. Fans of other teams are disrespectful of the Cowboys every where. Nothing to do with the fans. Every time the Cowboys have their #1 pick announced at the draft, its boos boos boos? Everyone? Gee, I don't hear the Cowbvoy fans being obnoxious when their team picks? I am what you fans are to Cowboy fans but some how its ok to treat us like ****.

I'll let you in on a little secret, ATF. I am and always have been, a Cowboys fan. What they do is beyond my control, so I don't worry about that. I also do NOT worry about whether some other fan of another team likes them or hates them. It's no hair off of my legs. Let them hate the 'Boys. Who friggin' cares? It's nothing PERSONAL, but you sound as if it's a personal attack on YOU.
My advice is to not sweat the petty stuff, nor pet the sweaty things. The people in here that you seem to be having problems with are my friends, regardless of team affiliation.

I have never been treated like s.h.*.t by anyone, no matter what team they like. This country was founded on freedom of speech, and it also applies to you and others of your kind. But, with that being said, you should realize that Jack, Johnny and anyone else who don't agree with you, have the SAME rights as you do. You might find yourself in a lot better discussions if you'd lay off of the bickering and whining about other people's opinions about the Cowboys.

As much as I can say I am a Cowboys fan. I agree with you on the fact that I hate J.Jones as a G.M. but I respect him as an owner. I might not be happy with him as a G.M. but as long as I see the Oakland Raiders (Al Davis makes me shudder) and Detroit Lions (Barry Sanders needed help) and their problems I wouldn't rant about him.

As an owner I hate how it was welcome to Texas, now Tom your fired. I would have given him the chance to retire with honor (maybe let Tom have a year to go out with but then Jimmy might not have waited.) But the end results worked out the best. I hate the fact that Texas Stadium is now a smoking hole in the ground but the place was a dump. For $1.3 Billion you could have built an up to date replica or refurb (See Lambeau Field.) But the NFL is a business and to succeed you need to make money and he is doing it, by the truck load.

Of course in my dreams next year Jones sells the club to Mark Cuban who hires Bill Cowher to come out of retirement to G.M.

But I will settle for a team that in all likelihood will make the playoffs and challenge for the Super Bowl. If you were a St.Louis/Oakland/Detroit/Cleveland/K.C./T.B./Buffalo would you want that opportunity?

I agree with a lot of what you say. Landry could have been convinced to retire and not be embarrassed. I've expressed that sentiment several times, but not much can be done now.

Insofar as other "lesser" teams are concerned, it's like the man who griped because he had no shoes, until he met another man who had no feet. The 'Boys at least have shoes, whereas some of the other teams, such as Detroit, have no feet.

The way JJ treated Landry was unconscionable. Like many wildly successful people, Jones is a jerk. Maybe not all the time, but he's as likable as a cobra.

No doubt. Not many long time Cowboys fans liked what he did, but time, and success, has a way of making people......."forget" (for lack of a better word) how he handled Tom.

I've always felt that Jerry wasn't the best fit for the team GM role and that he needed to bring in a football guy who could evaluate talent. If anything, not having someone of that stature has hurt the organization in the past. With the current talent that's in camp today, hopefully things can really get turned around in wins and losses....If last season is an indication, I'd say that we're on the right track...

Good points. But, Jones is going to do things his way, even if the facts above are correct. We, as fans, can only hope for the best that one day, 20 years of being a GM has taught him something. At least until Stephen inherits the team.Just my opinion tho.

I would love for jerry to own the seahawks, stop complaining!
