How many Cowboys fans are reading this blog? Raise your hand!
I think we as “fans” need to define what a fan is. To some people it seems, being a Cowboys fan means you support every decision, every breath, any and everything because it has the Blue Star attached to it.
Then there are some “fans” who love the Cowboys, but would like to give advice to Jerry just like if he was your brother and you can see he’s about to put diesel in his unleaded tank.
Two types of fans, but still a love for the Cowboys. That’s ok isn’t it? Except sometimes, the type 1 fan doesn’t understand the type 2 fan and vice versa.
Like Jimmy was saying in the above video, Jerry is his own worst enemy. To me, as I look around the NFL, if Jerry would just be the owner and stay the hell out of Valley Ranch, his investment would be worth no telling how much money, and the Cowboys are the most valuable team in the NFL already. So to a working class dude like myself, the only thing the Cowboys are to people like Jerry is a toy of some kind. The reason I say that is because if he wanted to make money, he could make even more money staying away from the team and treating his coaches like puppets. But no, Jerry wants to play coach. And he’s not a coach. Jimmy Johnsons knows it, and I know it, and lots of “fans” that support the Cowboys know it.

The Cowboys choose Brookings over Burnett
The Cowboys choose Kitna for Anthony Henry
It appears the Cowboys are letting good players go in favor of paying way too much for older, less athletic players. Should I get my pom-poms out now and cheer, or should I tell Jerry he is at the diesel pump? I’m, a life-long fan, I just hate to see Jerry screw this up. If that makes the other “fans” upset, I’m sorry. I just hate to see my Cowboys run on diesel.
And here is a fan that I truly respect. Mr. Shango. Watch this video and see if the current state of the Cowboys doesn’t upset him.
