    It's not a football town.
    The fans aren't true baseball fans.
    Those who boo me will be clueless.
    In so many words.

    He can't be so dumb as to think those people will treat him like Michael Young when Young returns.

    A whole package on this topic, starting with:

    The idea that true baseball fans will cheer his return to Texas makes him about the most clueless person in the majors.

    Yes, the Mavericks had better ratings last season than the Cowboys.

    Nice to see that the most common typo ever made it into the story's URL: "forth worth"

    Is Philly a Phillies town because they won the most recent championship?

    The Pats and Celtics are the biggest winners in Boston, but the Bosox are at least their equals?

    Bears have one title in 50+ years and Chicago is more a football town than basketball.

    Dallas is a fraud for everything.

    There are 30 NFL towns in this country, counting Foxborough instead of Boston and East Rutherford instead of New York.

    The Cowboys fandom has changed - at least those who go to the Big Circus Tent. That group is looking for a huge party. They don't give a shit about winning football. Jerry knows this and knows they'll keep coming back. They all go to drink, eat and gawk at themselves on the Jerrytron.

    It's kind of like it used to be at the Rangers park, when the hot, steamy nachos were the big draw. I worked at the old ball park and will never forget the woman who came up complaining "why is it such a big problem and inconvenience for the players to sign autographs when all they are doing is sitting in the dugout?"

    Not that smart of fans.
    But Hamilton is still a narcissistic prick.
