Patrik Walker, Staff Writer

I'm not a Dallas Cowboys fan. I'm a Dallas Cowboys FANATIC. I bleed so that The Star may prosper. I breed so that it shall never perish. I write so that it may never be silenced. I'm a realist, an analyst, and a Cowboys' optimist grounded in facts and a relentless love for our team. I randomly awaken throughout my slumber yelling aloud: "How 'bout those Cowboys???!!" Welcome....to the show.

Robert H. Carroll, Staff Writer

I was born a Dallas Cowboys fan in Washington DC., currently a resident of Jacksonville, FL. I usually travel to see the Cowboys play 2 - 4 times per season with the goal of seeing them play in every NFL stadium. I'm extremely optimistic regarding the Cowboys. I'm a huge Fantasy Football fanatic too. I seek answers by analyzing stats and sharing my discoveries with a little humor. 90% of my articles include a chart! Catch me tailgating at a city near you and let's talk Cowboys! #JobuApproved

Christian is currently involved with ATM Las Vegas, focal point of the Animal Planet reality show TANKED.

Surpassing his involvement in the previous fields, following the Dallas Cowboys is almost a life-long affair which leads Christian to The Landry Hat as of late 2013.
