WHEN a team owner favors a rule change, just so that his living money pit can experience life after Week 17; you know it’s time to re-define ‘sad’ in the dictionary.
I’m against playoff expansion. I think if you suck, you should be made to stop shivving your fans when the regular season comes to an end. Back-dooring an extra team or two into the playoffs is wrong.
It’s like a club. The hot chicks are already inside. Skanks with visible cold sores shouldn’t be snuck in through the alley. It just bad for everyone. The club looks like they let anyone in; ladies who take care of themselves are in competition with the skanks, who now think being a skank is perfectly fine; and I still have no idea what this rash is. It’s just a bad idea.
However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said directly that such a change “would help my Cowboys.” Yikes! No vote of confidence. No Texas swagger. Just the implication that his collection of overhyped, overpaid, underachievers need a rule change for an opportunity to fail on a grander stage.
After decades of them braying about the ‘90’s, I feel a certain level of self-righteous entitlement to enjoying this. Especially when you realize it was the Vikings that won those Super Bowls for the Cowboys.
Really, look up the Herschel Walker Trade, aka The Great Trade Robbery. If you’re a young Eagles fan and the 1990’s are before your time, this is one of those things it helps to know. It also sheds light on a large reason why Jones can’t get close to his past success.
Now he’s a broken owner hoping that the NFL gets a little softer, so his failure machine can see glory one last time.
sad∙ /sad/ adj the current state of the 2014 Dallas Cowboys.
