Default Re: The Great Debate: 'America's Team'

It's different with the Cowboys. You show up at a hotel in downtown Charlotte, N.C., and there are 400 Cowboys fans roaming the lobby. Maybe a handful of that group made the trip from Dallas. No team in the NFL casts a wider net than the Cowboys in terms of homers. And that's why the Cowboys remain the true "America's Team."

There, fixed it for Mosley. If you've never been to Dallas and never lived near there, then in my opinion, that is the definition of homer. At some point, the fan picked a winning team and went with it. That means homer. When Dallas is having a bad period, opposing teams can fill the stands with their fans. Never happens in Pittsburgh. Oh wait, that's because we don't have down period like Dallas does.
