Default Who do you prefer to lose - Titans or Cowboys?

Either way, its good for us. Either it shuts up the Dallas fans and makes them nervous again, or a division rival drops a game.

So which scenario do you prefer?

Is really a win-win situation, but I gotta go with the Tacks losing. Division opponent and any team that has Finnegan on it, I loathe.

"Yes I hate 'em hate 'em hate 'em till they box 'em up and crate 'em."


Okay I stole that from the Drew Carey Show. As much as I HATE Bud I despise the Lizzard King. If I HAD to choose between the two I'd rather see the Cowgirls dream of a Stupor-bowl in their home toilet even FURTHER out of reach. I'd rather hear a bunch of Texas Exes bragging about how great it is for VY to win a game than the muff-huggas who RUINED Texans' Tailgating for generation to come to think they have a winning streak.

I want to win our division and I want our divisional rivals to lose.

So I chose the Titans even though I'd love for the Cowboys to lose, too.

Default Re: Who do you prefer to lose - Titans or Cowboys?

Oops. I accidentally clicked the wrong team in the poll.

It is always better that a divisional rival should lose.

And, truth be told, the Cowboys are not nearly as big of a rival now as they were back in the days of the Houston Oilers. I was surprised to discover that I had no lingering animosity at all after the loss to the Cowboys. It was a loss, which was disappointing. But not an overly important one in the scheme of things.

Time to move on from the Cowboys hatred. That is water under the bridge.

Default Re: Who do you prefer to lose - Titans or Cowboys?

No brainer for me. The Titans because 1) I hate the Titans, 2) I hate Bud, 3) division rival, 4) I hate the Titans.

I've grown pretty apathetic about the Cowboys over the years. I dislike Cowboy fans much, much more than I dislike their team.

worst...poll...ever

and the results are pretty sad

you would rather lose to an actual rival than lose to a make believe pretend out of conference rival? man, that is like saying an Eagles fan would rather lose to the Cowboys than lose to the Steelers. Something tells me Eagles fan isn't so insecure and jealous of the Steelers success that they would forego a true rival win just so they can have some stupid and worthless bragging rights every four years.

man, and you can call it whatever you want, I call it jealousy. you can call it rivalry, but we all know a rivalry has to go both ways or its like Baylor calling UT its rival.

cmon now, Texans fans. The Titans stole our team, have ripped our heart out on numerous occassions, and are in our division and conference. It's like some of you would rather beat the Cowboys than have any actual and measurable success.

and don't hit me with the 'you just don't get it' line of BS. it is YOU that doesn't get it.

Rival > Make Believe Rival

SH, I believe it's a poll to choose which team would you rather see lose games, not who you'd rather our team lose to. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Default Re: Who do you prefer to lose - Titans or Cowboys?

Basically it is a who will you be rooting for on Sunday. The Titans or Cowboys since they are playing each other after our game.

BTW, there isn't much of a rivalry between the Eagles and Steelers. Geographically Philly fans hate NY. Pittsburgh is in western PA which is on another planet to most people in eastern PA.

Also Steeler fans are not as annoying as Cowboys fans. There are more annoying Cowboys fans in eastern PA than Steeler fans.

As my 8 yo son knows, there comes a strange event every four seasons - sort of an NFL solar eclipse - where our house actually roots for the Cowboys. This Sunday is that day.

I have to pour a gallon of bleach in each ear and eat three tablespoons of Palmolive while gargling Goof Off after the game, but it is so worth it if the Titans get their asses kicked.

Yes, this is a weird weekend for me too. I have 2 strange events that happen every 4 years. One, I root against the Giants and two I root for the Cowboys. This is a double whammy weekend for me. I will actually be rooting for the Cowboys to gain a game in the division over the Giants.

The Sunday before last was really bad for me ... these four teams played each and it lined up to where my 2 favorite teams played the 2 teams I hate the most. I really lost out on that one. Now my 2 favorite teams play each other as do the two teams I hate the most. Very evil scheduling by the NFL.
