Being a fan of the Dallas Cowboys hasn’t been easy for the last few years. The promise of a talented team reaching their potential every season only to have them promptly fall on their faces can dishearten even the loyalest fan. Still, every preseason is filled with promise. Every media commentator taunts us after every win and dashes our hopes with every loss.
Now, here we are at the mid-season point, staring another 8-8 season dead in the face. And due to the lack of talent in the NFC East, the Cowboys have their greatest chance in years to make the playoffs. Yet every fan has that nagging itch in the back of their minds: “This Dallas team always finds a way to screw things up. How will they do it this time?” Then you shake your head like your shaking that thought out of your mind. “No!” You tell yourself. “They can do it this time! They…can…do…it.”
It’s that sense of hope every fan has at this time of year. Before the reality of December busts through our television screens, like Jerry Jones break dancing in a Pizza Hut commercial. Still, the wombs of past failures haunt us. More than that, they tick us off!
They say admitting there is a problem is the first step to resolving it. Well, there are some big problems in Big “D” that we need to resolve. Here are 12 things that should really tick off Cowboys fans. Let’s hope admitting them gets us that mush closer to a winning solution.
