I think the Pat's one is a reference to the old Patriots, implying that they suck now just like they use to :P

I don't get the Titan's one at all either.

I take it as this because its Chris Johnson and every thing he does and doesn't do is magnified in the media not the fact they have a decent team,

Using a magnifying class to try and identify where Chris Johnson has been all year if not show he's under heavy watch due to his big contract and big expectations and he's come up small.

I was confused about the Patriot one but I am guessing that since the picture shows Pat Patriot hiking, that it indicates that NE has been pure offense and zero defense.

That makes a lot of sense, thanks haha.

Edit:

Pat Patriot has always been hiking the ball. The only change I can tell from the original Pat Patriot is his boots. He's wearing Uggs (or w/e they're called).

Haha good catch I don't know why I didn't see that(I am used to ugg boots and NE then again). Either way its showing Brady's offense with the ball as NE's been carried by that offense.

The Raiders one is kinda weird too. Maybe Palmer was "HotDogging it" out from Cincy? Or it can be another indirect slap to when a fellow USC QB, Mark Sanchez ate a hot dog in OAK 2 years ago Lol.

He is wearing Uggs, nice eye.

Saints one is weak, crutches thats all they could think of? What would they do if coach wasn't injured.

Steelers one is weak as well. We really haven't steam rolled anyone.

Ravens is weak too. If I had a say, I'd give that Raven a unibrow with the number 5 somewhere having a shocked face as a Seahawk is going the other way with the ball in the background.

Or you can do a two-faced Ravens logo...

Seriously numerous people on this board could have done a better job. What did they use MS paint or somethin? The Eagles/Heat logo is so poorly bucket filled and the Luck on the colts jersey is awful. You're telling me NO ONE at ESPN knows how to use photoshop?

it's because you're from england. both are secondary sports in the city to their counterpart.

Well, I wouldn't say the cowboys are secondary to the Mavericks but the Mavs do a lot more winning than the cowboys.

That's why I don't like the Dallas one. I'm pretty sure the Mavericks could win three straight championships and be second fiddle to the Cowboys.

Why are the cowboys called Americas Team?

Bengalsrocket
11-17-2011, 04:26 PM
Why are the cowboys called Americas Team?

I believe it's because from like the 70's-90's there wasn't nearly the amount of sports coverage that there is now. So a lot city that didn't have a team would get the Cowboys broadcasted to them when they played. Since they had the most coverage, that meant most of America rooted for them.

Edit:
Okay, so I looked it up because I wasn't 100% on what I posted above. Google sent me to wikipedia, which has an entire article on "America's Team". The following is a part of that article:

Bob Ryan, now Vice President and editor-in-chief of NFL Films, coined this for the Cowboys while preparing and editing the team’s 1978 season highlight film.[8] He was quoted as saying:

I wanted to come up with a different twist on their team highlight film. I noticed then, and had noticed earlier, that wherever the Cowboys played, you saw people in the stands with Cowboys jerseys and hats and pennants. Plus, they were always the national game on television.

Ryan told the NFL Network, for their Top Ten Nicknames show:

I saw all these fans in away stadiums. Hey, they're the most popular team in the country. How can I use that? Why don't we call them "America's Team"? [2]


So I guess whoever owned the Cowboys back then was just smart enough to market there team as the one that should always be nationally televised :P

From the 1978 NFL Films Dallas Cowboys Highlight video... written by Bob Ryan narrated by John Acenda...

"The Cowboys are the Notre Dame of professional football.

No matter where they play, their fans are there to greet them.

Their faces are recognized by fans all across this country.

The sum total of their stars are a galaxy.

They are the Dallas Cowboys….America’s Team."
