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.

But being in the hunt, and giving your fans hope, is a big part of keeping your fan base.

The Red Sox didn't win diddily for 80 years but the fans were fanatical because they had personality, and personalities, and were in the hunt many years. Even the heartbreak years builds resolve and love in the fan base.

To LOSE fans, you must SUCK.

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.
So 3-13 and 1-15 doesn't classify a 'sucking'?

If the Vikings weren't so ****ing retarded, Dallas would not have had that success in the 90s.

Your Mom is like the Dallas Cowboys. Hasn't looked good for 20 years, yet millions across the country still line up to get in for some reason. They always overpay for a very subpar performance, but keep coming back. She keeps saying that one of these days she'll break that record for the most people inside at one time. And though she's given it plenty of attempts, the results are just never good enough to claim the title. But still, the performances in the 70's through the 90's will always keep her relevant with guys talking around the watercooler.

Because Jerry Jones is a media darling. He's a star in the eyes of sports reporters.

Unlike Opie Hunt and his tightly clenched penny.

Of course it does, but those types of years were VERY few and far between. Hell, 3 years after 1-15 they won the first of another set of Super Bowls.

20 straight winning seasons (NFL Record)

8 Super Bowl appearances (ties NFL Record)

You can bitch about it, but it is what it is.

Completely irrelevant.

If Golden State wasn't so ****ing retarded, Red Auerbach doesn't get Parish and McHale and put together the Big 3. If the Rochester Royals don't use the first pick in the NBA draft in 1956 on Sihugo Green, then Red Auerbach doesn't get Bill Russell and win 98 straight and 110 out of 13 championships. If 31 teams aren't retarded and spend 198 picks picking players NOT named Tom Brady before the Pats take him in the 6th. Etc. ad infinitum.

Combine with being huge football fans. Rangers and Astros don't matter THAT much, but TExas is big on football so yeah, that helps.

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.
