Dallas Cowboys Fans Need to Enjoy The Team

I think it is actually healthy to want the team to get better in some aspect that is lacking. What I don’t find at all healthy or appealing though is to dislike every aspect of the team. From management, to coaching, to players, to tradition, to who the players date. There are fans and media out there who do that, and still profess to love and enjoy the team. I don’t understand that. I don’t think I want to either.

I recently saw some photos from a fashion event that involved some of the ladies whom our players are married to, engaged to, or involved with. I could not believe some of the hateful comments. Especially as it pertained to Miles Austin’s fiance. I realize some people are still hung up over the fact he knocked boots with Kim Kardashian, but dang folks, change the page. I don’t care who the players marry, date, or screw as long as they give the team all they have on game days. I can’t help but wonder if people are truly mad at this new girl, hung up over a girl he dumped years ago, mad at him, or mad at his hamstrings. It seems not so long ago that Miles was a hero because he was better than Roy Williams, who is still disliked even though he is long gone.

It seems like people miss a lot of great opportunities to just enjoy this team. That doesn’t mean you accept mediocrity or any other wild conjecture made to make you feel worse about yourself. It means that football is a game to be enjoyed and no team can be enjoyed quite as much as the Cowboys can be. Part of that enjoyment is because people are so obsessed with them and hating them that it is downright funny.

    I’ve been a Cowboy fan since 1968. We are the most hated franchise in ALL OF SPORTS. And I like it that way. The fact that we live ‘rent free’ in our opponents heads from January to December….get’s me PUMPED!

    Fan since 1963. I loved them when they lost and I loved them when they won. Now I love them for not knowing which end is up thanks to their owner. They make me laugh.

    The only professional team that has as many “haters” for as long as the Dallas Cowboys have, is my other favorite team, the New York Yankees. They, until very recently, had the same attitude as DaBoyz, “Championship or Bust!” I recalled when the Yankees lost to the Diamondbacks, it was a failed season. They were the BEST in the AL, and second best in all of MLB, and it wasn’t good enough. I look forward to the day and seasons that not only that becomes the Cowboy’s mantra again, but they play that way on the field again. GO BOYS (and Yankees)!!!!!!

    Hate is such a loaded word. Usually implies desire for harm or ill will to befall another. Given the Cowboys lack of success over the last 17 years or so it would seem the haters have gotten exactly what they wanted so why do they still hate? It’s not like we have a recent record to be jealous of. Most likely something they were taught two or three decades ago and and continue to hang on to for some irrational reason. Maybe it’s really JJ they hate.

      Fans of other teams “Hate” the Cowboys cuz they are jealous of the title “America’s Team”.
      They are also “Hating” cuz no matter what they do or say, the Cowboys are still worth more than any other sports franchise besides Manchester United or one of them European soccer teams.
      Its also widely known that there is an abundance of Cowboy fans across the world. I guess I’d be mad at the fact that when the Cowboys come to town, there are more of their fans then of the home teams fans there (Arizona). Just like Floyd Mayweather, he don’t care if people hate him so much that they pay to see him lose, cuz that’s still money in his pocket.
      Whether people love the Cowboys or love to hate them, they are continuing to talk about them which only makes them mors I creasingly popular, so thank you to all of the fans and “Haters” of the Dallas Cowboys for making this franchise America’s #1 sports franchise!

    I love the fact everybody else hates us. Means we have done something right. I don’t like the fact they have a point in ridiculing us because as an organization the Boys have not done much in the last 10 years. Time to start winning Super Bowls again and soon.
