    It's hard to be positive when you lack confidence in the GM,,, and as a famous coach once said, "Confidence is only born of demonstrated ability". Jerry will need to field a decent team for several years in a row before any confidence is restored in the franchise.

    It's good that you've either discovered your problem, or at least are trying to. I hope you can get it worked out somehow. I just don't know why I am that important to you.

    It's really that simple. Without all the dramatics.

    Give me a GM that produces results and I'll be positive. Saddle me with the worst in sports and proven so for two decades and I'll be negative. Not about life but, ya know, the team I root for in the NFL.

    I love this argument. Only Super bowls will make this type of fan happy?
    Good luck with that in life.

    My father was a devoted Saints fan and one of the most grounded people anyone could have ever met. He did not live to see the day New Orleans win a Lombardi, but he realistically accepted the good with the bad while he was alive. Knowing him, he would shake his head at today's Cowboys fans. Who could blame him?

    I'd be happy with regular playoff appearances. It works for other teams.

    If it comes, people will be happy. What people aren't happy with is 8-8 mediocrity every year.

    It would benefit you to to understand, even if you don't want to. I understand your thinking because up until a couple of years ago, I was considered an upbeat , happy fan. The one thing that I couldn't be during that time is dishonest. During the Campo years, the team stunk and I would say so. It was the truth. Now we are going through the same thing, and I am honest about it. If it helps you to understand, realist or whatever the current label is, are not miserable. I actually am laughing when in type in about 95% of these post. I don't care about the label "fan" in the least bit. If somebody wants to be a bigger fan or smaller fan, I don't care what they call themselves. Back to the point that I want you to get from this, think of having a brand new car and some jerk keys it. You love the car and still enjoy riding in the car, but that doesn't change the fact that the paint job is screwed up and you are ticked about it. Now relate that to the Cowboys. They was a fine ride and some jerk screwed it up and he won't stop. He knows better, but he doesn't care. That is Jerry. Fans have every right to be mad. He admits that he would have fired any GM that has done this bad of a job, but he still continues screwing up my favorite football team. I can't understand why it doesn't tick you off. Most of us are just hoping that something happens to change things. I use Jerry as the example, because he is where the buck stops. He is the one person that can fix every problem on the team. There is no debating his power. To make it easy for you and other fans, Jerry has lost a big part of the fanbase. We are tired of the repeated mistakes. Many say for us to leave. No, this was our team before Jerry screwed it up. Fans are welcome to predict 13-3 seasons and make claims of improvement if they want, but they need to expect to be called out on it. There is nothing other than three 8-8 seasons to back those claims. That is not improvement. From my POV, it is good to get excited for your team, but I don't think it should come at the price of integrity.

    Who's offended? I'm just intrigued with posters such as yourself that always post negatively. I dug psychology in college.

    It's incredibly clear that it gets under your skin when someone doesn't agree with your stance on the Cowboys. Just accept the fact that everyone comes from a different walk of life, and not everyone is going to share the same opinion. I had a lot different view on the Cowboys before I started investing thousands of dollars a year into the team. Every year I upgrade my seats, they become more expensive, and I just want to win that much more.

    Like I said, however you spin your negativity for yourself is your business.

    It's awesome, but it's more defeating to see the team in its current state when you're laying down a ton of cash every year. Let me know if you're ever in town and want to go to a game ;)

    I bet it is. That's a lot of money to be spending on anything.

    I do hope to go see a game there one day.
