    What does this have to do with the Cowboys? Absolutely nothing. Although he does have a lot in common with many current and ex Cowboys players since you want to drag that franchise into this. Maybe he'll be one soon.

    I'm assuming his point was more toward the fact that this board blows up when a Dallas bench warmer gets in trouble, but when a pro bowler from another team messes up there isn't even a thread about it.

    IIRC, Lynch had a few character concerns during his time at Cal. Apparently he hasn't matured all that much.

    There is a reason why the Cowboys players get mentioned more, and that is because of their long history for going after players with issues and also having players on their teams with issues. If it wasn't such a common thing for Jerry to go after guys with who have low character issues, then people in here wouldn't talk about it as much. And it isn't even just in here, the Cowboys are criticized everywhere for having knuckle headed players and not caring about who they bring in. The Bengals get criticized the same way and so do the Raiders because they are similar. Frog just isn't mentioning them because he isn't a fan of those teams.

    Thanks for explaining Bah!..LOL. It's like the Plaxico thread that I prefaced by saying I would beat haters to the punch about Dallas signing him. 3-4 people still brought this up meaning they didn't read my comments and went right into the same tired line mode. But you hit the nail on the head..if it was a practice squader we would be on page 3.

    As for Lynch. Another that will be out of the league at some point and another example of how alot of these guys just don't get it.

    No, I don't mention them because they are never brought up here....not surprising. Dallas was rarely mentioned here until this past year or so. I won't go into debate mode again but I already laid out NY Times articles, etc about many, many teams with knuckleheads that aren't mentioned....Denver included. I think your "history" is short sided as to who they sign. Maybe I'll start just announcing all players on Dallas and other teams who represent the mass majority and who do United Way, etc. How much fun would that be? :)You were one of a few who skipped the joking intro to make your Dallas crack in the Plax thread. No surprise.

    I'm not debating that stuff with you. That stuff is all true.

    But that doesn't explain why there was no thread about Marshawn when a T.O. thread would be on page five by now.

    A lot of people hate the Cowboys. But down here in Houston it seems that it has less to do with their owner, players, and fans and more to do with their history of winning.

    You said it all. I'll stop there. This wasn't supposed to be serious anyways. I just wanted to have some fun with a thug on another team that wasn't on page 5 here.

    But on point. What are the Bills going to do?I don't even think they have anyone but Fred Jackson backing him up.

    Again, this was in fun..let's not get into the fray. My bad for making the joke. I started it.:)

    I disagree about why a lot of fans don't like the Cowboys. I don't think it is because of their winning. Hell, they haven't won anything since the 90's any way. Plus, they aren't even in our conference. I think it has more to do with having to see and talk to a lot of arrogant Cowboy fans out here and many like myself hate to see Houstonians rooting for the Cowboys and not the Texans and many of them come off as band wagoners. And I think you under estimate why people can't stand Jerry Jones. No one likes to see an owner of any team display a lack of morals and standards when it comes to who he pays for their services and how empowers players like TO and makes them a leader on his team. He did the same thing with Michael Irvin after he stabbed one of his own team mates on the team's premises.

    As for TO, of course it would be longer because every year TO is in the middle of some controversy and has already brought two teams down and if you want to count last season he has brought 3 teams down. TO is an entirely different factor and really isn't comparable here and neither would be Pac Man Jones considering what a long trail of disaster he has left behind his path. Of course guys like them will be talked about more because of the long history.

    Marshawn Lynch looks and sounds very unprofessional, one of his overanalyzed faults going into the draft.

    Frog, if you weren't such a cool cat, I'd be Neg Rep you every time I was able to give it to you. LOL :)

    Man, that dude's just messed up! He definitely hit a few hundred branches while falling from the ugly tree.

    That's the one I saw. Nothing like my entire screen being covered by the face of Lynch. Good Gravy!
