    Yeah, I think that's pretty much the long and short of it.

    Go root for the Browns, and watch what we could have had here in Manziel....then you will be begging to root for the Cowboys again.

    Enjoy the game, did you hear that this god awful Cowboys team has a pretty good offense.
    Sure some pet cat RB's and WR's were let go, but some good ones were also kept.
    The defense is what the defense is, and we havn't seen them in real action yet.

    I also follow the Broncos, not going to root for them before the Cowboys

    Reminds me of that Demitri Martin joke... "When someone describes themselves as a 'taxpayer', they're about to be an ***hole."

    Just enjoy the NFL. I enjoy watching the whole league. I don't take any Cowboys loss that hard anymore. If you do you'll go crazy. I just expect it.

    I agree, but I don't think it's as simple as that with the Cowboys.

    The heart break in seeing your team lose is bad enough, but when your idiot owner consistently puts a target on your back so that pretty much every other fan relishes and exacerbates your misery, it makes things a little tougher. Especially as it's compounded over the last 18 years.

    We can't be the humble Chiefs fan, who others respect for sticking with the team (despite more recent success, might I add). We're looked at as jokes for remaining loyal because of all the glitz and glam that Jerry has created, and when we refuse to take it any more via hushed crowds and empty seats, it's "typical cowboys front running fans" again.

    Anyway, that's why I've contemplated jumping ship. But here I am posting on a cowboys forum before the season has even started-- just like every year.

    They have something called college football that you might find appealing.

    I don't know where you live, but Friday night High School football here in Texas can be another source of entertainment.

    Stick with them and when they do finally get to the top it will be all the sweeter. Besides, true fans NEVER jump ship no matter what the reason.

    True Cowboys fans do die?

    Yes, after a loss I would be depressed for at least a week. Now, not so much. The players don't seem to care when I have a bad day at work. He'll, they don't seem to care when they lose either. It's just the entertainment business, win or lose they all get paid.

    Agreed. Actually true fans don't really have a choice. You can stop watching, but it doesn't shield you from the highs and lows. Can't break the tether.

    He's just frustrated as we all are and it's justified.

    Yep, the Polish cavalry said the same thing against the German Panzers.

    But not with Jerry Jones in charge. He's shown he's incapable, and 20 years of losing has proven that.

    I love the Cowboys, but utterly hate Jerry Jones' ineptitude at leading this team. He's not capable. Simple as that.

    Naw..I live in Atlanta & I want the Falcons to win. The Cowboys are my favorite NFL team but I like a few others because of certain players I like. Everybody is different.

    I still cheer for the Cowboys, and only the Cowboys. (well that's not entirely true, I always cheer for whoever plays the 'stoolers')

    But I know I have lost interest, because sitting here, without looking, I honestly don't know who we play after the 9ers. I used to have the entire schedule memorized.

    I used to know every player on the roster, the number that they wear, years in the league, and where they went to college. Not any more.

    This has not happened overnight, it happened little by little.

    I am somewhat embarrassed by this, but it is what it is.
