"It has never been something the organization has ever promoted or called itself," team spokesman Rich Dalrymple said. "We don't beat our chests about it, and we don't view it as a contest with other professional sports teams."
edit: well, I know WHY. still a joke.
We have become the NFL's most hated team. The media, former players, fans of other teams, even some former dallas players admit that Dallas is over hyped and as a football team under-delivers. Most people are now glad to see Dallas get their butts kicked and revel in their adversity and December swoons. A once proud, successful football franchise has been relegated to the ashbin of history. Who's at fault for this: none other than the Glitz Magnate Jerry Jones... Enjoy the next failed decade...
