    Now let's hear the one about how "we" thought it was a good idea the fire real pro football GMs and hire the owner as the team's GM, but that's not looking good...

    Here's some hindsight for you, Jerruh...[​IMG]

    One of the richest morons in the league. Way to throw your 97 year old DC under the bus, you tool.

    Kiffin was an odd hiring anyway.....well, fitting for dullass

    Jon Gruden will be the next HC of the Cowgirls, Monte Kiffin DC.

    I guess we could say he is the antithesis of Bob McNair.

    Knee jerk owner as opposed to the patience of Job owner.

    The boys have won more games than the Texans this year though. :wadepalm:

    And they won a super bowl forty years ago. :kubepalm:

    In all seriousness, I still can't understand why a Cowboys hater would care. I don't doubt that I'm wired differently, but there is only two other teams that I have a nice emotional interest, Texans and Vikings. Other than that I'm pretty indifferent. Certainly I wish losses for those in our division, and there are teams that I will tune in with casual interest and perhaps root for, such as the Forty Niners, Denver, Seattle, Saints, Ravens, and that's about it. I guess it could be surprising, but New England is on my indifferent list. I give them props, but I'm rarely interested in watching them unless they are playing one of the teams above.

    The decision was right so he can stop second guessing himself on that one...but the
    system will not work, if the coaches do not have input! this is why Jones needs to
    step down as GM or owner/gm

    it is only when real coaches and that wedge between owner and the rest of the
    personal is put into place! that we will see significant change in how the team
    performs overall

    I always root for the Skins, Eagles, Giants and Texans.

    And whomever is playing against the boys.

    Seriously, does that make me a hater? (rhetorical question I suppose)

    Actually there was a time when I could root for the boys. Before Jerry's insulting treatment of Tom Landry. A great coach who deserved better.

    If the boys fans are allowed to live in the past then so am I...:)

    that makes you a bandwagon fan

    This **** again? you people need new material seriously, Jones didn't just
    walk up to Landry and proclaim your fired, he discussed with Tom that it
    would be in the best interest to make the coaching change and Landry
    agreed shook Jones hand and the two went their own way

    now let's take a step back and look at the facts surrounding the why?

    Landry's Cowboys from 85-88 has steadily declined, the league had
    all ready advanced into new ways of coaching offense and defense
    and Landry refused to accept or acknowledge any of that

    he believed the system could still be successful...any approach by
    Tex Schramm to get Tom to change the way he did things would
    have been unsuccessful

    Landry would not have stepped down to take any position higher than
    the one he has currently held, so the only option left is to sit him down
    and make the decision for him

    To quote Michael Corleone - it's not personal, just business, even fans
    were calling into the late night sports talk radio shows and screaming
    about Landry and how a coaching change had to be made

    Tex Schramm himself admitted he wanted to make a change at head
    coach but didn't have the heart to fire Landry, but neither Bumbright
    or Schramm wanted Landry's blood on their hands

    so they let Jones do the dirty work and to me that makes them both
    cowards, especially Schramm who was his friend


    kinda hard to live in a past that only knows losing

    I don't like the Cowboys because of their fans. I was an Oiler fan growing up as a kid. I constantly heard all the crap about how the Cowboys are a real football team and the Oilers weren't $hit. All of that from Houstonians, not people from Dallas. So, I learned to hate those traitorous bastards and the team they love and I've never lost that feeling. And now that I'm old, cantankerous, irritable, and generally don't give a goddamn what anyone thinks of me, my attitude about the Cowpukes grows worse.

    I will say though there are a couple of folks who post on this board that are Cowboy fans that are very nice people. I sometimes wonder if I hurt their feelings when I post such hatred towards the Cowpies. But then I realize that if I do, they need their man card revoked. That, and they are probably used to me being a $hithead about it. :lol:

    Fans do tend to talk that is what sports is about? but I think the fact
    that you seen Dallas more then Houston, is a part of your problem and
    not just a few fans telling you something that would be absolutely true

    You don't hurt mine cause I am a heartless individual so no worries there

    So am I. So, I guess it won't hurt anyone's feelings if I say your are a worthless troll? Of course, if I call you a worthless troll, it would actually invigorate you causing you to make more meaningless trolling posts.

    I feel like I should give this more serious thought, but I've just lost my train of thought. I think I should just leave it at you being a worthless troll, otherwise it might appear I'm actually putting in effort trolling you instead.

    :cheese:

    At least I wasn't the one who got us moved to the smack forum you ****ing idiot.

    If you're gonna troll some, troll where it might do some good. There's to much Cowboy hate around here for your ignorant posts to have a real effect.

    No, I think I'll use the history and truth to smash the lies of those who
    spit at the Cowboys in jealousy

    The bigger the lie, the more it is told the more likely it is to be believed?? false propaganda
    is the new truth for the brainless who believe it

    Most Cowboy fans disagree with you. I guess they are acting out of jealousy as well.

    No, like you they are acting out of stupidity, because like you they are
    brainwashed into believing the lies...which is why the majority of them
    still kiss Jones ass and attend games

    but then openly criticize the way he micro manages the team while swearing
    up and down!! they won't be buying merchandise, or attending games till he
    changes

    So the fact they disagree with me doesn't mean a damn thing, but you keep
    fishing for answers maybe you'll hook something someday
