    About two years ago, I didnt even know Cowboys fan forums even existed. Now that I do, I'm addicted. Combination of getting the latest news, and some credible or far fetched rumors, keeps me checking in almost on a daily basis. Plus getting to read others opinions.

    Getting to meet other fans has been a highlight of being a member of a forum. Still surprises me when I talk to a fan and they dont know about forums.

    So just curious, what drives you guys to check in??

    Same here. I come for the news and the discussion of course. Both of which are usually top notch.

    When Emmitt broke the rushing record I felt like I had to talk about it. I found the DMN forums. Got invited here by Duane and really just enjoyed how much fun most of these folks are. For someone who craves football news and likes to shoot the breeze, it was a perfect fit. I've made some enemies, but I've made a lot more friends. People I just enjoy laughing with.

    I used to be a member of the DMN forum. That thing went to hades in a hand basket.

    Not sure how, but from the DMN forum found out about this one and never looked back.

    This forum is so far and away the best Cowboys forum that is not even funny.

    What brings me here is having a chance to discuss the issues of the Dallas Cowboys with other people who have a similar interest in the team. Here I get to have intelligent and thoughtful discussion on a variety of issues concerning the team either directly or indirectly (or sometimes only theoretically). It is my place to relax and get away from the rest of the crap that goes with living in the real world.

    i actually found this place by accident, i used to belong to another forum, but my job blocked that web site, so i did a yahoo search and came up with this one, for some reason they didnt block this forum. the zone is great, top notch posters and have made quite a few friends. love the rumors and news i get hear. i have friends here at home that are cowboys fans but none really like to talk about them, for a while i felt that i was the only die hard fan then i discovered here, thanks Zoners.

    I feel the same way. No matter how bad I view another's opinion, or how much I would love to launch a virus into a troll's computer, this place relaxes me.

    I have been hanging out at various Cowboys forums since the early 90s (started with the OLD DMN before it was closed and Molly's board). Big Dog Cowboy and Skip kept telling me what a great place the Zone was and I finally decided to check it out. After getting past the ENORMOUS number of posts every day and figuring out that I really could post something without it having been said 25 times by others before I could type out my response I have made it a home.

    Now this is my primary hangout since news hits here faster than anywhere else and some of the best posters on the web are here. I still visit some others but this is the one I frequent the most. It's always hoppin! :bounce:

    I have been posting on Cowboys message boards since 1997. The first one was the TSN message board. It didn't have much for securities so the trolls were out in force and could not be regulated.

    I frequent three forums now. The Zone, the Ranch, and the Forum.

    Went to about.com's football forum since it always comes up when searching for mock drafts, then BigD, summer, and MB3 told me about this place.

    It's awesome, greatest forum anywhere. Really helped after I got banned from the other one for a run in with two absolute nut-job Packer fans. :)

    It's easily the best Cowboys community on the 'net and I don't think I'm being biased. We attract some of the best posters that I've read on any message board - Cowboys related or not.

    The historical knowledge of someone like Chief or CBZ isn't easily matched. In depth analysis from posters like Yakuza Rich, AdamJT13, David Blair and many others is top notch. Trickblue and InmanRoshi's recaps are invaluable and posted here first by the original posters. This and a lot more are what keep me here as more than a Mod.

    This is the best and most complete forum of any type that I've found. Plus I finally found a place where I can read/talk about the 'boys and not be hounded about it! It's the first place I go when I log onto the net...
