For goodness sakes the Loveboat used to have an annual episode with the Cowboys' cheerleaders. As ESAD said there are still a lot of folks around who remember both the '70's and '90's Cowboys teams. You've got the order backwards.
Well said. I agree with this 100000 percent.
People are used to the Cowboys because they're shoved down our throats in major, national games; as a result, people are used to seeing them, and don't complain when they're bad because, well, they're the Cowboys, and we're used to seeing them so much.
If networks were to stop giving the Cowboys 900 primetime games every season, eventually viewers will stop caring.
'Round and round. Total chicken and egg scenario.
