    As I recall, back when Dallas was "America's Team", they were darn near on TV every week. Sort of like the Yanks and RedSox are now.

    I first became a Dallas Cowboy fan on December 31, 1967. Wow....46 1/2 years ago!

    As a young boy I watch the entire Cowboy/Packer Championship game and fell in love with the loser of that game. My love for the Cowboys continued into the late 1970's when EVERYONE jumped on their bandwagon and they became "American's Team". Somewhere around that time I became a little less obsessed with them, but I am still a fan.

    I would love to be a die-hard Bengals fan, but they have broken my heart too many times. For that reason, I will not allow myself to go there, although I will root for the Bengals.

    Because they are going to draft Manziel, let the circus begin.

    I despise the Cowboys more than any team in the NFL. Always have.

    I grew up in the era of "America's Team" being force fed by the media. I can't stand being told I'm supposed to like them. America's team my butt.

    Much the same reason I despise USC. Forced to watch them every Saturday when the networks were the only choice. Hope they lose every game ever too.

    When I was a kid I loved watching the Cowboys Dorsett, To Tall Jones, Staubach, Randy and Danny White. I loved watching them play Riggins and the Redskins.

    Ever since Jerry Jones took over it has been a shambles. I wonder if there was no salary cap what kind of team we would have.

    I always liked watching Bill Bates, dang he was a hustler and hitter.

    Saddest memory is when Dwight Clark caught the pass over Emerson Walls at sf.
    Danny White was an awesome qb. He has been shunned by Jones.

    Jerry does have Three Rings...so it's not been in shambles the entire time. Dallas has Five and Jerry got Three of them.

    That said the last 15-20 years have been AWESOME for non-Cowboy fans!!!

    My Papaw was a big Tom Landry and Dallas Cowboys fan. That automatically made me a fan. I can remember watchin Dandy Don Merideth and Craig Morton play QB for the Cowboys. Calvin Hill, Walt Garrison, Drew Pearson, Randy White....Great Memories and I flat out can't stand Jerry Jones.

    Dandy Don Meredith was the QB when I started following the Cowboys! 2 tough losses to Green Bay helped me learn to hate the Packers at an early age. I have been a fan since 1966! I survived the 1-15 season and have enjoyed many ups and downs. Room decorated with 50+ Dallas hats and 20 jerseys plus a lot of memorabilia. Also decorate my 2010 Scion XD like a Cowboys helmet on wheels during football season. HOW BOUT THEM COWBOYS!!!!!

    I hope Dallas has a good draft, they need help everywhere, but especially on defense.
