Hating Dallas Is Who We Are

Dallas Cowboys fans, we hate you.

Actually, if there was a word stronger than hate that’s how Eagles fans would feel about you.

It’s not that we are jealous of your five Super Bowl trophies, your new stadium, or the moniker “America’s Team.”

The contempt we hold for your spineless supporters begins with the fact that most of the fans have no connection to the Dallas area and are nothing more than bandwagon-hopping front-runners.

The cockroaches known as Cowboys fans litter America from coast to coast and they have the worst excuse for being a fan.

Some of the frauds will tell you they liked the star on the helmet when they were younger or they will tell you how much they love and respect Tom Landry or Roger Staubach.

Stop. Your reasons for splintering your backside on the bandwagon are embarrassing. Half the fan base has no connection to the Dallas area, and the other half could not locate Dallas on a map if you spotted them Texas.

Meanwhile true Eagles fans have done nothing but suffer through 49 years of not winning a championship. But we’re okay with that, because we have character and integrity. Any self-respecting Philadelphian would rather never watch a down in the NFL instead of being a traitor.

Yet when the Eagles and Cowboys throw down on Sunday afternoon, the aforementioned cockroaches will crawl back into their holes if and when the Cowboys begin to lose.

Eagle fans have no problems with a Cowboy fan that grew up in or around Dallas, but they have major issues with the fraud fans that starting liking the Cowboys because it was convenient.

Where is the character in that? Where is the dedication? Where is the satisfaction?

It’s probably a good thing frauds like that are Cowboys fans. You see, Eagles fans don’t have time for someone like that. Fans like that would whine and cry when things get tough. Yes, Eagles fans may complain about the team’s performance, but they won’t abandon their team and cheer for the flavor of the week.

Eagles’ fans are better than that.

So go ahead Dallas fans and ask us how many Super Bowls the Cowboys have. I’d be shocked if you could count that high. And we’re glad that Cowboys fans like to live in the past, because the future isn’t going to bring them what they believe is rightfully theirs.

But this year is different right?

Tony Romo finally wins a couple of games against the Giants and Redskins and suddenly everything is fixed?

Oh, it is the win against the Saints that made you believers. Right, cause the Saints looked so good over the past month including the clunker they had against the hapless Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

I’m sure Cowboys fans will come up with a good excuse as to why the Eagles beat them on Sunday. After all, your excuses for becoming a Cowboy fan are so creative.

The only thing Eagles fans can truly hope for is that with an Eagles’ win on Sunday some of the cockroaches are exterminated.
