    The point is Roger Staubach wouldn't be on a most hated player list.

    I just don't feel like we can say that in retrospect. The game wasn't nearly as popular, the internet wasn't around, the media wasn't head-hunting at every turn, etc...

    Is it so hard to understand that popularity and dislike often come hand in hand? The Yankees and Lakers are two of the most popular sports teams in the nation, and also some of the most disliked. Manchester United is extremely popular worldwide, and many people dislike the team.

    Name any famous celebrity who has millions of fans, and you'll probably find many people who dislike them, too. Any politician elected by millions of voters was also probably opposed by many voters who voted against him.

    Is that such a hard concept to grasp?

    Fifth quarterback on the list. The other two ahead of him are a defensive tackle and a linebacker.

    Who knows, maybe Romo won't be on a most-hated list either 40 years after he retires.

    The Cowboys are still popular today because of what Roger Staubach did for the Cowboys during the 70's. They were popular when Quincy Carter was the QB. It was the championships and great comebacks under Staubach during the 70's that drew so many fans to the team.

    I don't know, Jerry Jones' marketing and the SB run in the 90's sure didn't hurt.

    Of course not the list will consist of current players 40 years from now.

    Not surprised the rest of the league "hates" him, especially when half his fan base "hates" him aswell.

    It all started with Staubach getting the Cowboys over the hump in 1971. A lot of kids grew up admiring and idolizing Roger Staubach like John Elway and Steve Young. He severed his country and became one of the greatest clutch QB's in NFL history. His peers respected him even Terry Bradshaw said Staubach was a better QB than him. Once a team attracts fans they're fans for life and their kids become fans. I doubt Jerry would have purchased the Cowboys had it not been for their great history. Even though the Cowboys were in shambles when Jerry bought the team in 89 they were still popular due to all the fans they attracted during their great years in the 70's.

    They don't have hate lists for players who played 40 years ago. All the players on the list are "current" players.

    Tells more about people who hate for the reason to hate than the list. Waste of energy.

    I think we can say it if you were following the team during the Roger Staubach era. He was an incredibly popular player who served his country and was a good family man not some playboy out on the town. He was a clean cut guy who people respected. He showed guts on the field taking huge hits and never gave up no matter how far behind the Cowboys were. There's no way Roger Staubach would have ended up on a most disliked/hated list during his playing days. Can't even believe we're arguing this.
