    Some of their exploits:



    They got their name from Danny White, a guy most of the members just didnt like. After thumping Skins 44-14 in 1985 and picking off Joe Theisman 6 times, Danny White would say after the game, "Man, they are like theives, Thurman's Theives".

    6 of the 8 of these guys (Walls, Thurman, Downs, Fellows, Bates and Clinkscale)are in the top 30 Cowboys All-Time Interceptions list and they all played at the same time :eek: .

    Ha! I went on the filed in both 75 and 78. Both years they played the last game at Shea and Jet fans storm the field. Im in the 78 nfl films tape (barely)
    The one player I gave a real good up close pat on the back to was Dexter Clinksdale.
