I was just on ESPN.com and there was a poll asking who i thought was America's team. I picked option 4 and that was the highest results. Go to the link if you don't believe me and it's the 2nd poll but the World has spoken and the Cowboys are no longer America's team. I said it before and i'll say it again. They are NOT America's team.
Yes; and I did forget one. I used to have a neighbor that a HUGE Cowboys fans. I could here him yelling when Tony Romo fumbles the field goal in the playoff game against the Seahawks.
It should be noted, that neither Dallas or Pittsburgh are in the Midwest; and the Steelers fans I know, have never been within 100 miles of the Pennsylvania border. The point being that it is hard to accept a team as America's Team when you only know one fan; and another team, the Steelers, has more fans.
Location: Pittsburgh--Home of the 6 time Super Bowl Champions!

America's Teams are the Olympic teams, National Men's and Women's Soccer team, National Baseball team, etc.
I agree! I hate that term also! Any team is THAT CITY's team! Chuck Noll addressed it perfectly back in the 70's when a reporter asked him...
Reporter: "Do you get mad when Dallas Cowboys are referred to as "America's Team" when your Steelers have won 4 Super Bowls?
Chuck Noll: "No, because we aren't America's team, we are PITTSBURGH'S TEAM!
And that is the way it should be WITH EVERY TEAM... No team should be called America's team--you are Phillie's team, Cleveland's team, Green Bay's team...
