    There is no rivalry between the Cowboys and the Texans, and there was no rivalry between the Oilers and the Cowboys.

    I really don't care about the Cowboy's game. I want to win it of course, but the Indianapolis game is far more important, because they are a division rival.

    Anything Dallas vs Houston will have a Texas style rivalry especially football.

    If anyone knows if this will be on the internet or how I could watch it from LA let me know please!!!

    It's gonna be nationally televised on CBS.

    The special? I don't know but I would like to see it as well. In Austin I'm sure ther will be plenty of coverage but all of it from a Cowboys perspective.

    Ya I was talking about the pre-game, I am assuming that fox sports wouldn't put it on the website or anything so I guess I just have no way of watching it :(

    Why would they do this before the preseason game and not the reg season game? The preseason game is fluff, who cares who wins! I really don't care, and that's the truth. BUT, come Sept 26th you betcha butt I care!! Geeeezzz, the media continues to suck, as usual!! Try to make something out of nothing. JMO!

    I agree with you Grandma!!! This game really doesn't matter - it is pre-season... it would have been better to broadcast this special before the regular season game.

    There is no rivalry because most Cowboy fans are bandwagoners from parts nowhere near Dallas, so the whole Houston/Dallas thing really doesn't matter to them.

    We have been over this and this is such a b.s. statement. It's doesn't matter to Cowboy fans because the Texans and Cowboys never play each other and the Cowboys true rivalries are in their own division and always have been.

    It's not b.s., true the Cowboys rivals are mainly from the NFC East, but if you think two Texas teams going at it does not have some form of rivalry intermixed with it your wrong. With the amount of pride the state of Texas has, as well as it's citizens, with state bragging rights on the line that's what you get.

    Is there a San Fran/Oakland/San Diego rivalry?

    Miami/Jacksonville/Tampa Bay rivalry?

    I'm like you, there ain't no Dallas/Houston rivalry. The people in Houston hate the people in Dallas. The people in Dallas don't know the people in Houston exist.

    From everything I've heard (from friends of mine in the Raider Nation), there is a San Fran/Oakland rivalry.

    And there is an Oakland/San Diego rivalry but it's because they're in the same division.

    Don't know about the Florida teams.

    Must agree with my adopted grandma here. Preseason doesn't mean Shhht.
    Beat these A-holes when it counts.

    It's going to be extremely frustrating if we lose to them in the regular season now.

    If we had lost to them, they'd be crowing about how bad we suck. But since we beat them in the preseason, it doesn't matter because it's preseason... just wait till it counts.

    Now, if we lose the game that counts, they'll just be talking that much more smack. We need to beat these guys when it counts.

    BTW, I just was checking on a Dallas site to see what people were saying and some of the people were pissed off because apparently PRIOR to the game Phillips and Romo had said that they were going to definitely game plan for this game and then afterwards, changed their tune to how they didn't game plan for it.
