Cowboys at Eagles: Will bad blood stoke any competitive flames?
By Tyrone Starr
On the same radio station’s morning show, SportsRadio 94.1 WIP-FM, the Eagles’ Jason Kelce decided to go a few levels harder at the Cowboys and their fan base.
"“. .. I just don’t think a lot of players, in particular me, just don’t really like the franchise, the organization, what it stands for—what it’s always stood for. This goes back to the lockout when they were getting replacement players … I’ve just never really appreciated what the organization—and what its fans really stood for. A lot of fair weather people from across the country that just kind of fell in love because they’re winners instead of having any type of emotional connection to the team whatsoever."
I would like to once again reiterate I’m all for people exposing who they really are and expressing their opinions as they see fit. I’m also someone who likes when people speak with fact. I know, I know … in 2018, that’s odd given the current country’s climate but call me old school.
Let’s address these comments in some detail, shall we?
Kelce doesn’t like what the Dallas Cowboys have always stood for, eh? Maybe Kelce should take a few moments and learn some history.
Once upon a time, the Cowboys were one of, if not the most innovative franchises in the league. Most of the concepts in today’s game were either created or popularized in the late 60’s and 70’s by then head coach Tom Landry. Adding that in the comment just shows his ignorance.
As for the shot at the fans, there are a lot of fair weather, bandwagon fans of any team that wins. I would bet anything in the world Philadelphia has picked up a few over the last year themselves. It kind of comes with the territory. People like winners.
To insinuate a large portion of the fan base falls into this category is once again, ignorant at best. If you happen to be a fan of the Dallas Cowboys in 2018, it’s hard to imagine you do so because of all the winning going on.
