There were non-sellouts during the Campo and Gailey regimes -- unacceptable, no matter how bad those guys were. But the Cowboy diehards around the country that have loved the team since Staubach and yet NEVER lived there, are smart and up to date on stuff. Even though some will act like rooting for the team since Aikman qualifies as a long time. I hate to admit it, but the Cowboys truly are "America's Team."
Sadly, much of the part about Dallas frontrunners is true to life. But I am a "never lived in Dallas" diehard (though both my parents hail from Dallas... which is of course why I grew up liking them).
I consider having liked the Cowboys for a long time, but I only started liking them since the Aikman era. The reason? I was 2 years old when he was drafted. But I have definitely been there through the good times and the dark ages... and taken my share of crap for it. Had I been alive when Staubach was QB, I would have cheered him on as well...
Heh, it took me like 3 minutes to find the Dolphins. I just kept looking at the bottom and thinking I had missed them down there.
#3 overall? Eh, it's true that Fins fans usually know what's going on as the column said, but I think that's mostly due to the fact that the people that aren't hardcore football fans are fair-weather fans to the extreme. I went down for the fins/browns game this year and the stadium was half empty.

I have to agree with my Hawk brothers aww and Nilmerf, this guy sounds like someone on the East Coast somehwere who basically pays attention to 2 or 3 teams. I'm just gonna use the Seahawks as an example, and I think they have a damn loyal following for a team which has not won a playoff matchup in over 20 years, they basically have Oregon, Washington and British Columbia as province/states who follow that team almost exclusively. It just so happens that we arent as outgoing on the West Coast.
Heck, even Arizona fans are not that bad, it's just that I would not want to sit in the scorching heat down there to watch a football game. Worst owner in football? No, that would be Red McCombs.

At least Jones and Davis will crack open thier wallets and get the coaching and players. You can thank Ford for driving Barry Sanders to reitrement. Also Matt Millen, come on. The guy is an absolute joke and until he sells the team, which he never will the Lions will not ever win a superbowl.

17. San Francisco: Utterly spoiled by the Greatest Long Term Run any NFL franchise has ever had, and they now have no clue how to act or think. Here's a hint. Just sit there and suffer, like the rest of us usually do.
I'm desensitized to the suckiness of my team due to the fact that I also am a big fan of the Pirates and Penguins...
I've been suffering for almost 10 years with both of them, so why should my football team be any different?
