Why do the Dallas Cowboys get sucked off so much?

I really don't get it. Why are they always talked about?

I was watching PTI yesterday and they're talking about if you could own a sports franchise which would it be. Kornheiser say either the Yankees or the Cowboys because they're the two dominating teams in their respective sports.

What?

They haven't won anything in almost twenty years. Hell before the playoff win in 2010 it had been almost as long for them as it has been for the Chiefs. Yet every year we hear before the season about how good the Cowboys are going to be like its a given. I'm not a hater on the Cowboys, I'm pretty neutral, I just dont get the media slob job.

They were consistently very good for 30 years. As consistently good as any team in NFL history. Over that time they built up a huge fanbase across the country.

They've done nothing in 15+ years, but it's like the Celtics, who were also dormant for 15 or whatever years but as soon as they were good again...

Yes but the Celtics have many many Championships. Only the Lakers can compare when it comes to titles. Steelers have more titles than the Cowboys and Niners have just as many. I dont see Niners being slobbed every year

Niners SUCKED forever, then were GREAT for 12 or 15 years, then went back to sucking. And by sucking, I don't mean mediocre, I mean HORRIFIC. Pre-Walsh they were one of the worst NFL teams.

Plus the Cowboys were great early in the NFL's history, when it was rising as a television power and becoming America's favorite sport. The NFL came along alot later.

Count historical MNF appearances, and I bet it's Cowboys over Niners by 4:1 or more.

I'm NOT a huge Cowboys fan, FTR, and I hate Jerry Jones. Just trying to explain why I think it is what it is.

Their fanbase is huge. Probably the largest in Pro Sports besides the Yankees if i had to guess.

More fans = more ratings= media talks about you more.


Doesnt matter how good or bad the team is.

How is this though? Are Cowboy fans learning impaired? I get it if you're from Dallas but how did it get so big if they're just not that good?

Let me guess -- your'e 30 years old or younger? Don't remember Tom Landry and all that...?

They really were America's team in many ways. Consistently on MNF when that really was THE game of the week, etc. etc.

As shitty as Jerry Jones has been as a GM the last 15 years he has done a good job at marketing the team. There's a reason why they split training camp between San Antonio and southern California. There's a reason why JJ built the largest stadium in the world. JJ wants to get the Cowgirl brand out there as much as possible. If they want to be a glamour team that lives in the past that's fine but to borrow a Texas term, they are rapidly becoming all hat and no cattle the last 15 years. If they have a huge fanbase around the country it's because they've been marketed that way.
