Let’s cut the crap. We’re fed up with these Dallas Cowboys. Every single one of us. This drought has gone on long enough. It’s gotten to the point that Cowboys’ Nation itself is divided on how to repair our beloved team. Some say the problem is Cowboys’ Owner/GM Jerry Jones. (Many) others point at our quarterback, Tony Romo. Then there’s the faction that says it’s the defense. Well, which is it?
I’ll tell you which one it is. It’s you. It’s me. It’s her and it’s him. It’s all of us. It’s every single Dallas Cowboys’ fan that has purchased any type of merchandise or watched a single game since our last Super Bowl victory (in the mid-1990s). Yes, it’s terribly easy to point the blame at others. Heck, there’s even a facet of truth in whichever of the aforementioned you choose to blame.
However, that being said, there’s also some truth in turning our proverbial fingers back around at ourselves. Never one to hide from introspection, I gave this some serious thought over the past few Dallas Cowboys’ seasons. I’ve pondered not the “why” (do I put up with such deep pain consecutive Decembers), but, rather the “what” (can I as a fan do about it)? The answer is an ugly one, so brace yourselves.
Stop supporting the Dallas Cowboys. You heard me. You wanted the truth, here it is. Sure, it’s about as gruesome as watching two camels kiss. I concede to that. It’s also about as likely as me getting my dog to drive me to work tomorrow. I get that. Allow me to expound a tad as to not let you stray from my point here. Stick with me kid, we’re going places.
