    It doesnt help him that he likes to wear his clothes loose. In this photo, taken the day after, his shirt is fitted more and he doesnt look as big.

    LOL, yea just filter out every opinion but the ones you agree with.The concept seems really silly to me. I appreciate different opinions even if I don't understand them. I am the member of several forum for different things and have used the "ignore" function only once and trust me the guy deserved it

    I wasn't claiming you did but you did bring it up. There are a few posters on here that use it to filter out anyone who disagrees with them which I think is silly. The one guy I used it for was banned shortly after I did it. He made a lot of peoples ignore list and truly deserved every bit of it and the banning. He was the true definition of a troll.

    I'd bet you're right and that's probably why Garrett takes Romo with him in public otherwise he'd get booed out of the arena (half kidding for those sensitive types who post here).

    In any event, I don't get too worked up over people booing coaches or players. It's the nature of the beast. If you're successful, people cheer; if not, they boo. Not sure why that's hard to understand and some folks find it offensive. The fan base booed Troy Aikman at the tail end of his career and he gave them 3 Superbowls. That, in my opinion, was offensive.

    No you're wrong. He is a symptom go the real problem. Jerry Jones is the Root.

    Can't really argue with you on that. You are 100% correct. I just know Garrett is the biggest correctable problem because Jerry is not going anywhere anytime soon so I don't waste too much time complaining about him.

    I don't think he is a correctable problem. If he is gone history shows Jerry will most likely hire another coach like him. I guess there is always a hope he gets lucky.

    That is my hope that Jerry finds a "yes man" who can actually coach. Campo, Wade, Garrett, etc... are definitely not the answer. I doubt we ever see another Tuna like hire unless we ever need a another new stadium but he could get lucky with a "yes man" hire. One can dream!!!

    I'm not sure anyone can label it silly simply because others use the ignore function. Forums, especially popular ones like this one, attract tons of content from members. As a consequence, a lot of reading material is created.

    This increases the chances of post duplication or repetitive information being read. On the one hand, a poster can choose to read the same message indefinitely. On the other hand, a poster can decide whether the delivery of the message has become repetitive in nature. If it is the former, a poster may prefer to exert self-tolerance for reading material which has lost its originally. If it is the latter, a poster may wish to filter stale reading material from fresh material.

    In my opinion, it is unusual for someone to automatically reads another's written thoughts and immediately say to themselves, "That's it! Enough! Ignore!" I'm fairly certain, with lack of fact, of course, that the decision is made after reading the same post from the same poster, say, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and deciding on Friday to take action to halt the redundancy. I believe the ignore function is implemented after someone has thought to themselves, "Okay, that's what that poster thinks. Alright, he or she believes this is right. Hmm, this poster is kind of hung up on saying this same thing. Hey look, I haven't read that before. Golly gee whiz, will this poster stop already? It's my umpteenth time reading this poster's comments and who would have thought his or her comment would be the exact same thing yet again. It's been two weeks let's see what that poster is saying... oh same as day one. That was a refreshing discussion on the defensive line, so let's see what that poster is saying now... surprisingly, it's the same thing."

    Redundancy is colorblind. Reading the same repetitive positive message can be as exasperating to a reader as reading the same repetitive negative message. Luckily, we are associated with a forum of choice. Just as someone has the opportunity to express their opinion, so does that person have the ability to avoid re-reading the same opinion. Unfortunately, some posters feel this benefit infringes on their right to express themselves. That is an incorrect assumption due to the simple fact that their opinion has already been expressed and read without restriction multiple times. Thankfully, forums such as this allow both the expression of opinion and safeguards against abusing expression of opinion as well.

    I get your point but even the ones who post the same thing a lot have something interesting to say every once in a while. You can usually tell from the first sentence and casually ignore by just skipping over the post. I know lot of my post probably have a repeated theme for my dislike of Garrett but I just can't help it because I feel so strongly about it. In fact, I generally post more when I am unhappy about something and generally lurk when I feel all is right. I have been a member of this forum for almost a decade and only have around 1800 post although I generally read it daily. So if my constant Garrett complaints ever bother you then I apologize in advance because I have to vent. I hope Garrett shuts me up this year so I can go back to mostly lurking.;)

    I think that it may be fair to say that not everyone is patient enough to indefinitely wait for a seemingly overly repetitive poster to say something interesting every once in a while. :)

    How about his performance as a whole for his career? You do realize that is what people are tired of. Particularly the end of game blunders.

    He's done a good job behind the center! I wish we had as much consistency from our defense during his tenure here. It's too bad he can put up 30+ points over and over again and we still lose. Yet it's his fault we lose?

    He hasn't had any more end of game blunders than other QBs but when you are the Cowboys QB EVERY game seems big and it mostly on a national stage so everything is magnified.

    What other QB gets his own 20 minute beat down like Romo gets on First Take on Monday mornings. Not Matt Ryan and not Stafford not Flacco or Rivers. It's ridicules.

    Finally, most people are not just tired but exasported not at Romo but at how the team has wasted his career to this point. Between the offensive line, the defense, coaching and organizational blunders what Romo has managed to do with his career has been amazing. It's a shame.

    I heard them crying on Philly sports this morning about losing DJackson because they were the best in the Division (quote/unquote). The host challenged the caller and said "what about Dallas? ... but their D is messed up and who is there QB?" You've got to be kidding me. I can't wait to root against NFowles this year. They think because he had that Cinderella stretch of games he's better than Romo? Like I say about all those similac quarterbacks, get back at me when they play 6 straight years and then let's talk about it.
