The Poll That Determined The Packers Are
"America's Team" Not The Dallas Cowboys
A link in the email went to an article in the Fort Worth Business Press titled Poll: Cowboys no longer ‘America’s Team’
I don't see how I could cause the Dallas Cowboys to no longer be America's Team.
However, I long ago did opine that the idea that the Dallas Cowboys were America's Team was a local delusion.
Several years ago, back when the Dallas Cowboys and the City of Arlington were abusing eminent domain to take homes, apartments and businesses to build Jerry Jones a new football stadium, I did add a page to my Eyes on Texas website on the subject of this delusion titled AMERICA'S TEAM: THE DALLAS COWBOYS?
Apparently something called Public Policy Polling took a survey and discovered that the Green Bay Packers are the most popular team in the National Football League, which, apparently, makes the Green Bay Packers America's Team.
The same survey revealed that not only are the Dallas Cowboys not America's most popular team, they are America's least favorite team, with 22 % of those surveyed picking Dallas as the worst.
The Packers were seen positively by 57 % of those surveyed, with only 13% having a negative opinion.
While the Dallas Cowboys were seen negatively by 41 %, with 29 % having a positive opinion.
In the ESPN online coverage of this serious issue you can watch a video where some talking heads discuss why it is that Dallas is not America's Team, along with one of the talking heads verbalizing how upset he is over this shocking fall from grace by the Dallas Cowboys.
What I am wondering is why is it no national polling entity had not put an end to the silly Dallas Cowboys being America's Team conceit a long time ago?
