For all intensive purposes, 2000.
I hope not. Bizarrely, the Broncos were very much my 2nd favourite team during the Elway years. I have never before or since had an even remotely 2nd favourite.nice to share, funny that!
I wonder it the TV show Dynasty had the opening credits flying over the stadium, would I have been a Broncos fan!
I was a young lad living in DC and had my bedroom plastered with posters of my favorite Commander players. Then I fell in love with how cool the Cowboys helmets were and how the o-linemen stood up and down in unision when at the line of scrimmage…oh yeah…and of course their cheerleaders!I thought it would be interesting for everyone to share when they became a Cowboys fan.
I lived in London in the early- to mid-80's and attended the first preseason game at Wembly.Early 80's when the NFL began being screened in the UK. Probably 1984 if memory serves me. It started with a 1 hour highlights show of the previous weekends games, screened at 1 in the morning on a Thursday. This quickly became unsatisfying so my brother bought a longwave radio and we listened to live commentary on armed forces radio broadcasting to Europe. We never knew which game it was going to be until it started so it was always a cause for celebration when it was the Cowboys. To think now that we can watch 5 live games every week on Sky TV . Different world.
It's not just the Cowboys. Up here in New England, most of the people have already stopped wearing and showing their Patriots pride. Everything was the Flying Elvis while TB was in town, then as soon as he left, it was almost like he'd never been here.I remember when Jimmy Johnson’s first started winning. The fans came out of the woodwork it was like wow where do you come from. And now they went right back into their rocks. There’s no loyalty you’re absolutely correct
I live in Warwick, Rhode Island. 25 minutes from Gillette stadium. Cowboy fan foreverIt's not just the Cowboys.

I loved the TV show Dallas too. I loved everything Dallas back then.Became a fan in 1978 when I was a kid. I also loved the TV show Dallas because it showed Texas stadium in the opening credits and soon became a Dallas Mavs fan as well. Somehow I became fascinated with anything regarding Dallas.
I didn't realize how passionate i was about this team until I cried after the loss to SF in the 81 nfc championship. Ironically I grew up in Tampa, FL. My dream was to one day live Dallas. The closest I got was being stationed at Ft Hood, TX in the 90's. I miss those super bowl runs.
