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.
