All of this to talk about and what do the comentators do, they spend half the time overhyping a rather boring team. I mean, wthey force stories where there is none. Dallas is losing, oh lets talk about that, oh they are winning now, lets talk abouf that.

Hello, there are 31 other teams to talk about. This year has had mucho excitement. The cowboys should not have been given more than a footnote this year.
I don't know what year you guys are in, but the 'Boys have been on the back burner for most of the year compared to other seasons.

I've heard more about the Jets' QB b.s. than the Cowboys, and I live in DFW.

they got crazy coverage.

even with their loss today, I keep hearing about them. Have not heard crap about the Giants yet.

I realized too that a lot of the commentators are either former Cowboys players or have some connection. Looks like they are just keeping their former team in the airwaves

San Antonio is not a good match for the NFL. Not nearly enough money, nor corporate presence to support a team here.

You have to keep in mind, you're still in Texas. But that was a big game. However, you WILL hear something about the Giants choking today after having the lead in the NFC East. The Cowboys will get some more coverage because (somehow, some way) they're STILL not only in the playoff hunt, but a chance for the division.

It comes with the territory. Cowboys are a very "media friendly" franchise, so it just works out.

as for Income, I am pretty sure the ticket situation would be on par with Jacksonville
That's NOT a ringing endorsement. They have about the worst attendance in the NFL. A lot of people wouldn't be surprised if the Jaguars didn't move to L.A.

Columbus, Ohio could handle one, maybe Portland, somewhere around Virginia Beach, and San Antonio.
