Re: America's Team?

ESPN has a love fest with the Cowboys in the same way it has a love fest with the Yankees and Red Sox. It's part of the reason why the hatred for those teams outside their fan base is so strong - biased reporting and programming favoritism based on market size and the almighty dollar, as opposed to unbiased reporting and coverage of the league(s).

Where once the Cowboys had classy guys and responsible owners and coaches, they now have the "win at all cost" mentality that the Yankees have. It has cost them any character they may have ever had during the Landry years.

Let them have "America's Team". As someone said in this thread, we are truly the "World's Team", and we piss class and excellence. It makes it that much more enjoyable to beat the crap out of 'em.

Vaguely reminiscent of when Strato was battling Canton for a certain award ...just no where near the same voracity as that tantalizing and wildly entertaining war that, I do believe, was won by Strato ! LOL....

Much agreed.
