All I know is that the Cowboys are THE WORST part of living in Dallas.
I would have guessed the Cowboys fans would have been the worst part.
Well, being you are from TX, you would believe that Dallas started the tradition.....FAR FROM IT. Detroit started playing some 30 YEARS prior! Now, you can say now that Dallas wins while you are napping......you must have forgot the MANY times they didn't.....1-15 and 2-14 seasons....ring a bell? Think like all of the 80's:lol:
maybe they need a turkey drop during half time
You guys are barking up the wrong tree. What has Detroit ever done to even deserve having a franchise in the NFL???? Don't just take thanksgiving away from them, disband that whole fiasco!!!! :lol:
Wasnt the last packers /cowboys game the highest rated MNF game?
I agree that Detroit should have the option, not have it taken away. My guess as to why Det/Dal isn't a "tradition" for playing each other every year is that those 2 teamed are rewarded for always playing on Thanksgiving by having a HOME game. And for their fans it is "tradition". I hate watching Detroit EVERY YEAR, and hate Dallas....their fans...and Owens as much as the next smart NFL fan, but both of these teams have earned the right for a home game tradition by playing every year for a longtime.
I think the Lions organization should be the ones to voluntarily give up the game, since they are never contenders and embarrass themselves almost every year.
The cowboys only lost 4 Thanksgiving day games in the 80's. So he was right. Dallas did win while you were napping after eating Turkey in the 80's.
well was the highest sunday nite football game this year.
I have loathed the Cowboys since they got that "America's Team" label in the early 1970's; the fact that I have been in the Washington area since 1978 puts icing on the proverbial cake.
I think your messing with traditions. Leave Detroit alone on Thanksgiving. I mean if your team plays Detroit on Turkey Day then you'd want to have them playing on Thanksgiving. Also, a lot of people are eating there Turkey so what does it matter if the game is on. Most of the time the game is just backround noise when you eat.
