    I'm just saying there's nothing the Cowboys can do about it. Just have to deal with it.

    I assume the CFL comment is meant to say that Canadians don't know NFL Football. Not cool.

    CBF, it a was a joke. I apologize.

    Virus, we play detroit, and 4 days later we play denver. And this is coming off of a short week (6 days) after playing philly).

    The players are going to be tired unless we use A LOT of rotation. I think Parcells will try to get a lot of rookies playing time against Detroit.

    Dallas pretty much does it every season because of the Thanksgiving game.

    Dallas has been doing that since the Cowboys deal with the NFL for the Thanksgiving Day game, good part about it is we get 10 days after the Thanksgiving Day game to hopefully make a strong push for the final part of the season. So it is fair if Dallas can win the game before Thanksgiving as well as the Thanksgiving day game itself. I have always considered that to be the key part of the Cowboys season

    The Gints getting an extra home games isn't fair, not being able to dress all 53 players isnt fair, and lifes not fair

    Please feel free to address anything you deem "unfair" to........

    I would have a problem if the Monday night game was the same week as the Thanksgiving game. Although I don't think the NFL would ever do that to either the Cowboys or Lions.

    I have always liked it, its like an extra "bye" week at the last part of the season, when we really need it.

    I'm not just talking about the the short week, but the combination of 3 short weeks...

    The scheduling usually isn't this bad.

    I think the only time I complained about a Cowboys schedule was at the end of 1994 season. Dallas played at the Saints on MNF and then followed that up by finishing at the Giants the next Saturday.

    Atta boy for apologizing....I'll buy you a nice cold Canadian Beer now.

    I actually like the team being on the Road together. It's still early in the year, it's a good time to bond with teammates and get on the same page.

    Sometimes being at home their are more distractions (Wives/GF's/Family/Media)
    On the road.....they can just focus on Football......I like it.

    Guess I'm alone on this one.

    I agree with you on that one. Much more distractions at home

    There is a Monday Night game this year, that makes it 24 hours harder. Less recovery time, less time to pre-pare.
