Cowboys bandwagon pathetic
CLICK TO REACT
Now here's a topic I could write a book on...
There's a lot of reasons people hate the Cowboys but, in my opinion, the biggest is that guy wearing the Cowboys jacket in your office. Or that guy wearing the Aikman jersey in your local bar. Or that guy driving around with a Cowboys bumper sticker. Wherever you are in this country, you know the guy I'm talking about. He's the same guy in every state, in every town that decided to jump on the Cowboys bandwagon despite having no connection whatsoever to the city of Dallas or the state of Texas.
Despite our rivalry, I have no problem with real Dallas fans. Those people that go to the stadium every week and live in the area are just regular football fans supporting their home team. I'll never understand the bandwagoners though. What fun is it to sit alone in your house with no friends hoping that the Cowboys aren't playing at the same time as the local team in the hopes that you'll actually get to watch them? If they win, you have no friends to celebrate with. When the Eagles win, I get to celebrate with 60,000 other fans at the Linc or with a few hundred other fans at a local bar. My friends, family, and the people I grew up with are all Eagles fans and we enjoy football together. I get to pick up my morning paper and read all about my team, I get tune in to the local radio stations who all talk about my team. I get to savor my team's success in a way these bandwagon Dallas fans never will.That aspect of community is what makes football so great. It's what makes sports great and it's something the bandwagon fans will sadly never experience.
They'll certainly act like it though. That lone guy wearing the Cowboys jersey in your local bar will always be quick to tell you about all the Super Bowls his team won, but of course he won't be able to tell you about any of the parades he went to... In the end, this picture I took on my way home one day will illustrate why everyone hates the Cowboys better than anything I could ever write.
