The vocal, aggregate angst from Cowboys fans is quite understandable. While you would be right to direct your anger at some well-heeled Cowboys, Tony Romo isn’t one of them. In fact, he is the reason you really matter.
It’s still the preseason but the Dallas Cowboys already beat the Washington Redskins in one thing — value.
Although it may have been hard for fans to imagine Dan Snyder ever changing 3 years ago, he has by stepping aside and allowing Mike Shanahan to run the Redskins, and now has Washington heading for a renaissance, all the while pointing and laughing at stubborn Jerry Jones in Dallas.
It hasn’t been a good offseason for the Dallas Cowboys in the way of making positive headlines. From DUI arrests to Jerry Jones firings that are getting harder and harder to explain away, their penchant for generating chatter once their season is over begs the question: Have the Cowboys surpassed the Redskins as the new offseason champs?
The NFLPA says it was simply coincidence that it brought a collusion lawsuit against the NFL a day after the Redskins’ and Cowboys’ salary cap dispute was dismissed by the league arbitrator, but regardless of why or when it happened, it’s a game changer for Washington…and the Redskins should take it as a sign that the fight’s not over.
If the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys hope to really overturn the combined $46 million in salary cap adjustments levied against them they better be ready to have some blood splash back in their direction.
At least Bluto Blutarsky and the rest of the loveable slobs from Delta Tau Chi were funny. Intoxicated fans hitting the highways aren’t.
