I would like to start off by giving you all a warning; if you are not a true Cowboys fan you may want to find another article to read! To those that decide to stay and read I would also like to give you a formal up front apology, as I may hurt some of your feelings.
For many years now Cowboy fans everywhere have been subjected to a highly contagious disease called, M.D.M. (Media Diarrhea of the Mouth). This is a world wide epidemic these days. This disease spreads rapidly; in fact it is so contagious that it is transmitted through your television and radio’s.
The real problem with this disease is that as of today there are no known cures, and those infected become moronic blowhards! It is highly advised to everyone that if you hear or see highly moronic activities that you immediately change the channel! Be very aware of your surroundings, the individuals infected with this disease could be someone you would least suspect!
The NFL off season seems to cause major flare ups with those infected, and this year is no different. So far this offseason the Dallas Cowboys have been ridiculed for releasing T.O. as well as for signing him in the first place, how does this make sense? People have also said over the course of the last 3 to 4 years, “Stop going after Big names and get people that can play!” yet when they decide to follow that method, they are blasted for a poor draft! (I think it was one of their better drafts in a long time).
Now I realize that everyone is entitled to their opinion, but you are not entitled (at this blog anyway) to change your opinion to fit what those with M.D.M. have.
There are many of you out there that claim to be Cowboy fans, the only problem with you is that you are only a fan when the team is 13-3 and the rest of the world is proclaiming them “The greatest team ever”! It is these “fans” that concern me the most, for you have already been infected, and are spreading this disgusting disease all over the place!
There are so many of you out there that you have even infected our most prized possessions. Many true fans still feel a connection to some of the great 90’s players like, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Deion Sanders, and Troy Aikman. I too was one of those, fortunately for me though I recognized symptoms of M.D.M. and feel the need to quarantine myself after listening to any of them talk! Why can’t you all just shut up!
Apparently the new “IN” thing is to spend as much time possible ripping the team, its players, coaches, and management. Everyday it seems there is a new article or another talking head filling the news stands, and air waves with ridiculous story after story. Some of this team’s players are even being ridiculed for what they do or not do on their off time, why? Can you imagine having people question your abilities for the simple fact that you play golf? And do not even come at me with this he (Tony Romo) is the quarterback of “Americas Team”, he should be at Valley Ranch working crap! That is absolute bull and will not fly with me.
This story is very amusing to me for the simple fact that no more than 3 weeks ago we were hearing about how “Tony and Roy(make sure to read the comments) have been at Valley Ranch everyday working with each other” but as soon as the guy picks up a golf club, instantly he becomes some sort of degenerate that does not care about his football team.
As soon as the infected people begin to talk this nonsense, low and behold a giant percentage of Cowboys fandom starts chiming in. It is these times that you can really see how many people have been infected with this horrible disease!
This disease is NOT like heart disease, it is not passed down from step father to son (don’t you just love Roger Clemens), and you can still take steroids without fear while being infected!
So tell me would you rather have big names with marginal output, or no names that will fight and claw for everything they get? If you want a team full of fighters, I can tell you with the changes made this off season, this team is well on their way to being a hardcore group of fighters.
For some of you neither way will be good enough, but for me this is the type of team I love and want!
