It's not intimination... It's showing another guy after he made fun of Texas Stadium that we're going to have a kick @ss stadium in 2009. Easy.

He said "imitation" not intimidation. He was refering to the fact that the Cowboys new stadium is patterned after Reliant.

Imitation? Jokes on you. The hole in the roof is evidence of an unfinished design. The original plan called for a retractable roof, which was quite a radical concept in the late 1960s. However, the idea was abandoned on the basis of engineering and financial problems. But the rest of the design was implemented, resulting in Texas Stadium as we know it.

They came up with the concept of the forward pass as well right?

Didn't we have like 6 good shots on your receivers/ tight ends?

on BACK up recievers/ tight ends. AJ took a medi ocra hit but that was about it. How you like your boy swinton by the way, looks to be an alright player.

Hey I'm just saying. It's not quite imitation.

It was the Cowboy's idea, and the alot of teams liked it, and used it for their stadium's 30 years later.

You can thank the Cowboys organization later. At least a former Cowboy scored for ya!


BTW, ask us about Swinton mid-season.

Fool yourself all you want. We looked awful, and I hope it doesn't continue into the regular season.

Almost 100% of all previous Super Bowl champs had a winning preseason.
This is an example of an honest fan

Let's look at the Patriots for example. They don't have the best talent in the NFL necessarily, but they strap up and come to play every game, be it preseason, regular season or post-season. They bring the wood coupled with the attitude and just win.

This team will not win until they learn how to impose their will on their opponent. There's too much of a "take what the opponent gives us" attitude... IMO.
Another honest fan..great post

"Your Texans looked like crap."

I just had to laugh and think How far the Cowboys have fallen now their Fans get excited over pre-season wins.
Actually, most Cowboys fans are excited about a defense finally, sure they will pick back at Texan fans but remember there really is no rivalry here to speak of at all. Most (though not all) Dallas fans are excited the team is finally showing signs of life after 8 years of poor decisions by Jerry.

So to be honest, most Cowboys fans are happy we are getting defensively aggressive and actually showing positive signs of development. The comments to Texan fans are primarily for good fun just like many Texan fans stuck it to the Dallas fans when they won as well.

If you have thick skin and are not a complete homer you will just say yes this time they won. Like it has been stated it is just a preseason game but to say it is totally meaningless is not accurate IMO.

here was my response to the so-called journalist

What you might want to do when regain your faculties is watch how Roy Williams got away with using his helmet as a WEAPON not once no not even twice but THREE times. Cowboys so proud during 3rd quarter break they went to commercial showing him using his helmet. Not to worry I advised Mike Periera to look @ the game film and look at Mr. Williams style of play. I guess since they won't let him break anymore legs he has to find a new way of playing dirty...oh well once a Sooner always a Sooner BTW with an offense that went 0-8 on crucial 3rd downs I would be more concerned with your O then running your mouth

Now this is babified and untrue..notice also the Texan player try to horse-collar Jules Jones as before he ran in for a TD?

Roy is a hitter..it is a fact..but he is not dirty..you are simply mad because he was destroying your wr's fair and square..this is not flag football..hitting is allowed..a close look at the tape showed Roy legally nailing the opposition.

The cowboys idea, that's funny man. I'm sure for the past thousands of years in the history of the stadium, there have been plenty of people thinking, wouldn't it be nice if we had some kind of roof that could open and close on this place, this rain sure sucks.
