Delusional disorder has about seven subtypes, but the most common, and the one in which Cowboys fans would suffer, is persecutory type. Basically, the patient believes he, or someone with whom the victim is close, is, in some manner, being grievously mistreated. An example of this is when some fans still harbor a grudge over Jerry Jones “classlessly” firing Tom Landry at a press conference, even though it’s been known for nearly two decades that Jerry and Tex Schramm visited Tom Landry personally to deliver the news way before the press conference. Yet, this doesn’t stop some fans from wallowing in their persecutory disorder.
This disorder also manifests itself when one believes that he personally has been maltreated and seeks “justice” through either legal action or violent acts. Thank Heaven we haven’t seen the latter, but we’ve certainly seen the former when last November a Georgia-based Cowboys fan petitioned the White House to remove Jerry Jones as owner of the Dallas Cowboys. I don’t know how many shades of silver and blue that is from pulling a John Hinckley, Jr., but it’s pretty close. Go put in “Jerry Jones must” in a Google search bar and see what the first suggestion is, or read this twisted, odious sicko.
