Just like we do with the Spurs.

The only reason why it is 70/30 Cowboys and Texans fans is precisely because there is no other alternative. Especially in South Texas. I see the Jaguars or Vikings moving to San Antonio in the near future. Or possibly the Chargers who will be moving within 24 months.
I've never really thought about it that way before. I had just assumed that everyone in Texas was ready to support the Cowboys. The only support the Texans get is from the Houston Metropolitan area, other wise they get absolutely no support from what I've seen.

The Texans do get some support form South Texas and parts of CenTex.

Really? Because to me it seemed like no matter where I visited, it would always be about the Cowboys. Lubbock, Amarillo, El Paso, San Antonio.

Surprisingly, Corpus Christi and Beaumont back the Texans up over the Cowboys.

Yeah the Cowboys have a strong hold on the state. That's why I said the Texans have some support in these areas.

That's good to know at least. I've read somewhere that even half of Arizona goes for the Cowboys over their own team.

And that massive Cowboy support still did not prevent Arizona from obtaining an NFL team. And so it will be with San Antonio. Once the city gets its own team to support, the Dallas Cowboys will fade from the public eye in San Antonio like a dead leaf falling from a tree in the Fall. It's inevitable.

Yeah that's what happened to Houston, before the Texans it was "Cowboys this, and Cowboys that", now there's nothing but solid rivalry with Dallas.

I would love to see the following.....

1) The Jacksonville Jaguars move to Los Angeles
2) The Buffalo Bills move to Toronto
3) Any team with extremely low attendance moves to London.
