Why is Dallas

13ODB : 4/20/2017 8:23 pm
The first schedule NFL network breaks down, not New England's not Atlanta but Dallas, that's all this channel talks about the cowboys

Thinking the same thing and why did they just bring up Tony Romo
Probably because the have the latest fanbase

Flagship team created in the 60's?

Not sure about that one.

But they definitely have the largest fanbase of bandwagon shit bags in the league.
Just looking at the schedule...

Out of their first 15 games this year, only 2 of the games will NOT be a prime time nationally televised game or the 4:25 "America's Game of the week".

It truly is Jerrah's World.
With all the hoopla

surrounding Dallas, it will be so much better to see the team crash & burn starting with the 1st game of the season. The league office has it in for Jerry Jones.

If they highlighted the Browns first, who would care?
Fine. Let Dallas line up at a different kickoff time every week.

Most coaches prefer to start every game at the same time. See Bill Parcells.
And at the same time,

The analyst predicts a Giants sweep of Dallas, so don't get too riled up about it.

You need to go stand in the corner for that comment. Shame on you. You're a giant fan and you say that????

Like it or not, they have the largest fanbase in the league. I'm not sure why it bothers anyone - it just lets us embrace that underdog mentality that much more easily.
This really isn't that hard to figure out.

I know Dallas has the largest collection of (scumbag) fans  
djm : 4/20/2017 11:20 pm : link
But that doesn't mean they are a flagship franchise.

And Applebee's is the most popular restaurant in America.

Which teams can honestly say they've got the most loyal fan base in America and one that is as large as any? It ain't Dallas.
Because of all the Super Bowls they've won the last 20 years

Oh. Wait.
Because they are "America's Team"

NFL is trying to make America Great Again.....

Honestly

You can go anywhere in the country and find Cowboys fans. I can think of several teams in this league where I have never come across a fan of theirs unless you are in that teams market
A lot of people watch when it s the Cowboys  
joeinpa : 4/21/2017 8:02 am : link
I always s do because of what it means to the Giants. and many watched to root against them like me. They are a polarizing team. I m good with that. Would hate if the Giants had that many prime time games.

Why do we denegrate fans of other teams like this. Every team has fans that are jerks...not the least of which are the NYG fans. Living in the DC/Baltimore area...I run across fans of the Skins, Ravens, Eagles and Dallas. Most are great people who happen to like a team different than ours.

MotownGIANTS : 4/21/2017 10:34 am : link
are marketed the best and they always have a controversy that can be spun left or right.

Jones has done an excellent job keeping them in the media not so much on letting the football minds do their job without him in the way (better as of let though).
I think it all started  
mrvax : 4/21/2017 11:14 am : link
back when Roger Staubach was making a bunch of come from behind wins. As a young kid in NY, I'd see it all the time. My aunt became a Cows fan b/c of Roger. And that's precisely why my brother and I rooted hard against the Cows.

They collected a lot of fans then and broke into the female market too which was largely unheard of.

+1, I can't figure out why people are upset about this kind of thing. Would you rather be America's team or the NY Giants. From my seat it is not even close.
