First, your rights.
You have the right to be really angry. Anything you say or do may make you feel better but it won’t make the Cowboys defensive backfield better. You have the right to vent your frustrations and engage in friendly, therapeutic debate with other Cowboys fans on The Landry Hat. If you cannot do so in a respectful manner, without cursing and hurling personal insults, you will be asked to leave. And if you are Wade Phillips, per our previous policy, you will also be asked to leave. Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you?
