    I don't agree Jerry doesn't care as long as the money is flowing in. He's always had more money than he knows what to do with. What he will desperately go to the grave seeking is being considered a "football guy."

    It's not enough just to win, we have to win his way.

      As I have stated before I will always be a fan of the team and wish them the best. I have watched them longer without Jones as an owner as I have otherwise so Jones is a stage in the teams history albeit a mixed bag stage in the lifespan. I have seen them since the first season with LeBaron as the midget QB to the current one who tries his best but doesn’t seem to have what it takes. I’m in all the way with the team but thourly disgusted with the Ownweship, management and Coaching staff. Memory serves me that the 70s and 80s had their droughts also.

        It's not as hard as you would think.

        I began forcing myself to not keep up in the offseason and not follow the draft or training camp in 2012. I'll admit that I was very tempted to tune in, but I forced myself not to.

        5 years later, not only do I not have to force myself to not keep up in the offseason, I honestly have no interest whatsoever to do so.

        It's human nature to become more and more disinterested in something the more time you spend away from it or disconnected from it.

        Because I've been disconnected from the team in that capacity for so long, even in 2014 when I did enjoy them winning, it wasn't like it used to be in the past where I'd wake up on Monday mornings feeling great. It was more like a short-lived joy than something that made me feel good for an entire week like it was in my homer days.

        My point is, even if the Cowboys went out and hired Bill Belichick tomorrow I don't think I will ever care about this team the way that I did prior to me making the conscious decision to start finding ways to emotionally disconnect myself from the team.... And I have no regrets about that.

        I guess you could say it was kind of like a no-looking-back type of decision and I'm glad I made it.

        I promise that if you make the effort to do so in the beginning, it'll start to come naturally as time goes on and you'll be glad you did it.

        Even if the Cowboys weren't the disaster that they are, there are much better things you could do with your time anyway so them being a shit show just makes it even easier to focus your time on something else.

        If it wasn't for the fact that some of the best memories in my life we're enjoying those 90s Cowboys teams with my father and uncle, I think I would have checked out a lot sooner than that.

          Only to see it all crash and burn again.

          It will. As long as Jones is running things.
          Not me.

          I've missed lots of Cowboys games in the last few seasons and I haven't missed it one bit.

          The only reason at all that I'm even remotely interested in what is going on with the 2018 Cowboys is because I think there's a legitimate chance Garrett gets fired. if I didn't think that were possible then I wouldn't even be paying attention the little bit that I am right now.

          I played RDR while this game was on last night and I watched the highlights afterward just to see what happened and I was pleasantly surprised by how poorly they performed. All of the check boxes were met in what I consider a best case scenario type loss because it all reflects poorly on Garrett and Prescott.

          Now, if they fire him it will only serve as a brief respite to me as I will wait to see who they go after next before I celebrate.

          If it's some other stooge who will also serve as a puppet or they do something idiotic line extend Prescott to a big contract despite his poor play, then that will be the end of my days as a Cowboys fan for good.

          My attachment to this team is already hanging on by the very thinnest of threads, so what the Cowboys do after they presumably fire Garrett will determine whether I come back to the team in some form or if I leave this garbage in the past forever.

              Agree 100% with what TA & CL are saying. It wasnít that hard to walk away from this team. And like TA, I donít think Iíll ever be back.

              Iíd been a fan of terrible Cowboys teams for a long time. I was a die hard. And now Iíve turned my attention to the Tennessee Volunteers. I follow recruiting like I used to foam at the mouth for mock drafts. I spend way too much time each week on a Vols forum. I spent a lot of money to see them play WVU in charlotte. Which is to say, I can follow and love and support a team even if they suck, provided I believe they are trying to be better.

              I just donít feel that winning is a priority for Dallas. This team is blessed with an idiot fan base who will always cheer Jerry like heís Elvis. Heís making money hand over fist, lip smaking and grinning the whole time. Garrett gets his ass handed to him by a mediocre team, at home, coming off the bye, and has the audacity to say he saw good things in that game and trying to build from it.

              He is a shit clueless coach who just recites key words and phrases he learns from reading books.
              Jerry is the epitome of incompetence, but heís old and comfortable and his ego wonít allow him to take a backseat to anyone.

              Idk.... I think my fandom started to die when Tim McMahon started to pressure Jerry with hard questions and Jerry just replied with his stupid smirk about how him being the GM gives Dallas an advantage. There I was, so emotionally invested in the team that I would schedule life events around games, and wins/losses would alter my mood for days - and this POS is so oblivious and indifferent to winning.

              And no, donít tell me ďJerry cares about winning.Ē He only wants to win on his terms, his way, and with him getting the credit. Fuck that guy and his entire family. Literally the worst thing to ever happen to Dallas. Cowboys are the Browns but with better uniforms.

                My advice is to not let this team work you up anymore. Its just not worth it for your health, sanity, or dealing with family members after a loss. Just find a new hobby or spend more time with the family. Let this organization go by the wayside.
                This was my message back in the CFR days. I was made fun of and ridiculed on most Cowboys msg boards. The fans back then weren't fed up enough just yet I guess. Maybe we were a bit early with the CFR idea. But you're dead on right, nothing will change until it hits that bastard in his pocket. Nothing.

                  Right on.

                  Like you, I was such a blind homer back when Campo was coach. I actually thought those 2000-2002 teams were better than their record because of how many close games they lost and that a good coach could take that team to the playoffs.

                  So imagine what a smug bastard I was when Parcells took that same team to the playoffs in 2003.

                  Anyway, my point is that it has nothing to do with the losing. Like I tell people who ask me at work or wherever, I will support the team in the worst of times just so long as I feel like they are truly trying. But as you pointed out, that's not the case in Dallas.

                  I'll say it in very simple terms, but the Cowboys basically trip themselves on purpose. They KNOW what they have to do in order to get better but they refuse to.....all while still asking the fans to support them completely.

                  Fuck off.

                  And like you, I focus most of my football energy now on the Longhorns, recruiting, and on college football in general.

                  Unlike the Cowboys, the Longhorns have actually tried to get better and things are starting to look up (despite the tough back to back losses), which is way more than the Cowboys can say.

                  That team, and especially that family, does not deserve a single fan to support the team.

                  I really really wish the fans who were fed up found it in them to finally just give it up. I know it's hard so I don't antagonize anyone, but it's the best thing they could do and the best way to stick it to the Jones family.

                            Never. I thought it was some kind of gif someone made up.

                            I’m done now just based on that being for real.

                              I don't blame you. My passion for the team is pretty much gone. I mostly show up to make fun of the team or mildly get into it. Don't get me wrong, if the occasional exciting thing happens in a game I'll momentarily get fired up but I don't live this stuff anymore. Not by a long shot. My older kids still ask me a ton of football questions about players and such and I honestly don't know a lot of the answers.

                              College football brings me more joy than this trash team.
