COWBOYS and Redskins fans have turned their backs on their teams. It’s clear why they did that. It’s because they’re ashamed of them. Notice the way they do anything they can to avoid discussing the current versions of their rosters.
When was the last time you heard one their “fans” talk about how good their teams are now? All they want to talk about is how good their teams used to be. The embarrassment of what they’ve become has driven them to this.
What you’re seeing is pain, fear and shame brought about by decades of abject humiliation.
ASK any Cowboys fan who their favorite defensive player is. Their immediate answer will be “5 rings!” They hide behind that statement like a child behind a mother’s skirt. What’s sad is that Cowboys are supposed to be symbols of rugged American forthrightness, but these fans exemplify only soft cowardice. And to bring out this cowardice you need only ask a single direct question about the current state of their team.
WHEN our EAGLES went 8-8 then 4-12, we fans didn’t hide. No one could been more vocal than us. When Andy Reid moved Juan Castillo from Offensive Line Coach to Defensive Coordinator, we were the first to say it was a bone-headed move. I still happen to love Reid as a coach, but that was a dumbass move and we sucked in part because of it. But we’ll come right out and say that. We didn’t look at 2011 and 2012 and say “Yeah but what about 2001-2004?” We didn’t bail. Because bailing would have been a bitch move.
SPEAKING of bitches, Redskins fans (by law) should be forbidden to talk about football. Two decades and change of irrelevance does not equal valid shit talking. In fact, ‘skins fans should have less to say than JFK.
Instead what you hear is “3 rings!” as they try desperately to pretend that the last quarter century hasn’t existed. That they haven’t been reduced to a struggling, flailing, laughingstock of a franchise. That they haven’t been run into the ground by their owner. They tried to return to glory by bringing back the coach who led them to that last Lombardi trophy, and all they did was drag him down with them and stain his legacy.
It’s no wonder they avoid talking of themselves today. What would they say? What do they have to be positive about? They have nothing. Nothing.
IT’S true. Since the NFL Championship was re-branded, our EAGLES have never won it. In fact, we’re 0-2 when it comes to playing in Super Bowls. But the difference is you and I can face it when our team sucks. We aren’t afraid of the bad times because we’ve been bad before, and we got better. We didn’t bail on our team when things got hard for them. We didn’t forsake those we watched during the low times, for the comfort of our memories.
We didn’t because we’re tougher than that. Because we’re better than that. And that makes us better than Redskins and Cowboys fans who dishonor their teams every DAY! And who fail daily in teaching their children (the next generation of fans), what fan loyalty REALLY is.
MY fellow EAGLES fans, I submit to you that if you haven’t met a Cowboys or Redskins fan who can discuss NOW, that you have never met any Cowboys or Redskins fans at all.
