The first post was enough to know these guys are batcrap insane and bored to death. What part of they were absolutely god awful last year do they not remember.
They're just sort of an afterthought to me. Snyder is amusing though.
Is this English?
I don't know, they kind of sound like us to be honest.
Redskins fans are the most delusional of any fan group in all of pro sports. Reading a few posts in that thread is just typical Skin fan nonsense. I lived in foreskin territory for 30 years. That entire region of the country is obsessed with all things Dallas Cowboys. Its not just during football season either. Its a year round thing. Every day of every week. Every week of every month. Every month of every year. A Skin fan cannot think or talk about his/her team w/o also thinking about the Cowboys. Its just not possible.
The following post from that thread pretty well sums it up:

The 'Boys ain't a rival, they're a foe! Our historical enemy! They were ****n with us before they were even a team, who can possibly compare to that?? It is always fun to beat Philly or NY but there is one and only team that has it's own "week" during the season. I have plenty of loathing left over for the other two, trust me, but there can be only one!
Ha Ha, this post is pure gold:

The fundamental loathing of Dallas and everything vile the blue star of evil stands for is as much a part of our history as anything else, this conversation only exists because many do not know the whole story.
This part is just classic and reveals their 24/7/365 obsession with us:
is as much a part of our history as anything else,
Looks like several of them hate the Seahawks, what the hell is up with that?
Clint stole their fight song. That must still sting a lil bit after all these years.
And another thing.....the thread starts out with: Lets just be real... the cowboys will always be a mess with Jerry running the team and picking the players, So either this is a case of the toothpick calling the matchstick skinny or theres a Cowboy fan makin posts over there.
FWIW, seems very few agree with the OP. I tend to agree with the poster that says they are the University of Maryland to our Duke. One day, I'm going to a game at AT&T stadium and I'm gonna start a "Not Our Rival" chant.
For the most part, the Redskins fans I've encountered have absolutely no sense of their team. They like to bash the Cowboys for inadequacies, but they may be even worse off-- we typically own them, have actually still been more relevant than them somehow since realignment, etc.
I don't think they realize that they're the forgotten team of the NFCE, and not just by NFCE rivals. If it weren't for RGIII, the Redskins would likely never be mentioned.
They're us, but worse somehow.
This was the greatest rivalry 25 years ago.
Now it's slightly more relevant than Texas/Texas A&M.
Free agency has taken most of the rivalry hatred away from these two teams. You don't have career long Cowboys playing against career long Redskins any more.
Its hard to despise a team that might be giving you your next contract.
Anyone else feel an appetite for a good Chicken Club Sandwich right now?
I noticed that too and thought it odd. I'll have to ask some of the Clueless locals here in DC about that.
One post from there:

"Some things you don't mess with. The Cowboys will always be the Death Star, and we will always be the Millenium Falcon."
..um....okay. I think I'm okay with this.
Yeah, the Death Star was moon-sized Imperial military battlestation while the Millenium Falcon was a light freight ship.
He's probably wrongly assuming that the Falcon blew up the Death Star, which shows he knows as much about Star Wars as he does about football
I don't understand why anyone would care what fans of a rival team say about their team.
