Dallas Cowboys: Emmitt Smith trolls Eagles’ fans … and it’s awesome!
Dallas Cowboys fans will love the fact their Hall of Fame running back, Emmitt Smith, trolled some disrespectful Philadelphia Eagles’ fans recently.
The rivalry between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles is at full tilt. And that’s despite the fact the Cowboys will be watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, while the Eagles are, by some miracle, playing in it.
Even though their Eagles are in the big dance, and should have their eyes set on the New England Patroits, their fans are always ready and willing to bag on the Cowboys. And in this particular case, directed at a Hall of Famer in running back Emmitt Smith.
While doing a radio interview on 105.3 The Fan’s GBAG Nation on Friday, a group of nearby Eagles’ fans started heckling Smith by chanting “Dallas sucks”. The legendary Cowboy stood up and did a little trolling himself …
"“Did ya’ll really say that?! How many rings ya’ll got!?!? How many rings ya’ll got!?!? How many rings you got!?!? That’s why you might not win the game this weekend! I was going to pick you but ya’ll talk too damn much!” Smith yelled back according to CBS DFW. “Now, go get some class! And go get a shot of penicillin with all that green on!”"
Smith’s use of the oldie but goodie “How many rings you got?” may lose it’s sting following Sunday night’s Super Bowl. But the fact is, the Eagles have a long way to go before owning the three rings Emmitt and company won back in the early 1990’s.
Trolling a Cowboys’ legend when your team is about to make an appearance in the Super Bowl is pretty low. But Eagles’ fans have a well-earned reputation of this kind of behavior. Incidents like throwing snowballs at Santa, pelting players with batteries and actually cheering when Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin laid motionless on the field due to a career-ending spinal injury.

Maybe one of the reasons the Philadelphia Eagles have yet to win a Super Bowl is due to karma. We’ll find out this Sunday. But so far, it’s not looking good …
