Welcome to the Dallas Cowboys True Blue forum. Please take a few moments before posting to read the rules.

1. Profanity is not allowed...period. Do not mask profane words in an attempt to bypass the filter. Examples of masking would be: D@LL@S , Da!!as, l />ALLA$, etc. Profanity used in languages other than English will also be considered masking.

2. No nudity or profane images. This includes Avatars and SIGs or posting links to media and/or other outlets which violate this policy.  Sigs, or posted images that depict nudity, or any other type of offensive material will be removed.

3. Please do not post entire articles from other sites.  You may post links to relevant content on other sites (i.e., article from ESPN.com).

 

4. Don't start a new thread on a topic that is already being discussed or it may be subject to either being merged with a similar topic, or closed.

6. Arguments and disagreements are expected and most certainly inevitable. Please don't resort to name-calling, direct or indirect, or labeling members. Do not degrade, demean, or belittle other members in any way. If you have a problem with someone's opinion, argue against the opinion, not the person.

7. Avoid excessive spamming. Spam is defined as posting irrelevant information and/or off-topic information (for example, a thread about dancing in a Cowboys game thread).

11. If you have an idea for an "Official" thread, please run it by a staff member and have them start it for you. Please DO NOT title any thread as an "Official" thread if you are not a moderator.

12. One account per member please. Multiple accounts may result in the de-activation of all accounts associated with that member. This includes accounts created in an attempt to bypass disciplinary action that has been taken. In addition, any account created with the intent of impersonating another past or present member will be permanently forfeit.

13. If you see any questionable activity, please use the "Report" button under each post. Please do not abuse this option.

14. If you choose to use your real name as a username or in conversation, you do so at your own risk.

15. Avatars cannot be animated GIFs, but signatures can be animated, as long as they are not distracting to others.

16. Please keep signatures to a reasonable size. SIGs that are too big may be subject to removal.

 

17. Do not quote another member in your sig unless you have permission from that person.  If you use another members comment in your sig, and that member wishes for their quote to be removed, the staff reserves the right to remove it out of respect for the other member or members.

 

18. Only 1 sig image per member is allowed.

 

18-a.  Random images of scantily clad women are not allowed.  Images of Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are allowed.

#111327 New Warning.

Posted by kskboys on 24 August 2012 - 05:31 PM

Just want to let everyone know that we're going to be handing out some 24 hour vacations for personal attacks and cursing. I've been letting some masked profanity slide, but no more. Listen, the "F" word does not belong on these forums in any way, shape or form. Find a different way to say things. Also might want to be careful about posting the same thing over and over, as that is considered spamming.

Just wanted to warn so as not to surprise anyone. Thank you, ksk

#3975611 The loss isn't nearly as bad as the attitudes.

Posted by Runwildboys on 16 January 2017 - 01:52 AM

It sucks that we lost tonight.  It really sucks!....but I can accept it, knowing that we're just at the beginning of a beautiful reign of terror in the NFL.

 

This season went much farther than anyone...ANYONE...expected. Not only do we have the best RB in the league, but one of, if not the best O-line, our franchise QB, a good receiving corps, some pretty good players on the rise on our defense (including Jaylon Smith, who will likely become one of the best LBs in the league), and this team is so young that we'll be in the top of the league for several years! 

 

Once we add to this defense, we'll be sitting very pretty.

 

So yeah, it sucks bad that we lost tonight....but at least there's a Hell of a lot to look forward to....yet all I see, with very few exceptions, are how this guy sucks, and this guy has to go, and yadda yadda friggin' yadda!

 

I realize some of us need to process this loss, and grieve in their own way, but man, some of it just makes the loss worse for everyone else. Misery loves company, but not miserable company. Try to see the good side, instead of blaming this one or that one.  We had a great run, for a team that wasn't supposed to even have a winning record.

This is several years too late. Should have been frustrated like 5 years ago.

#3903217 Dear Cowboys Fans

Posted by Bobhaze on 19 December 2016 - 06:16 AM

We won the game tonight. We are 12-2. I am enjoying this season as much as any season in the 50+ years I've followed this team. When we win, I don't care who's playing QB or whether the play calling meets everyone's standards or how strong we looked. I don't care if "I was right" about ______or wrong about ______either. Winning = good. Always.

Enjoy the ride. Celebrate the wins and remember what it was like this time last year. This is some fine wine we drinking up in here!

#4199968 Condolences to Doc

Posted by Call Me Doc on 14 August 2017 - 10:55 PM

THANK YOU EVERYONE, for your sweet words, thoughts & prayers. Husband's memorial service is on Thursday, and the funeral won't be until sometime in January. He's being buried at Arlington National Cemetery, with full military honors for a 30-year career. But because it's ANC, there's a backlog, which is why the funeral won't be until January. Still not ready to come back here yet, as there's too much to do. I'm overwhelmed by the outpourings of love and support for me and our family :wub: .

 

Again, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

#4118314 Thread Etiquette

Posted by CouchCoach on 09 May 2017 - 07:23 PM

How about this?  If you don't like a thread, don't post in it.  If you feel it belongs somewhere else, send a Mod a message, don't post that in the thread.

 

If posters don't support a thread, it dies on its own.  I know, I've euthanized enough of my own.

 

It is disrespectful and insulting to the thread originator and who cares?  It is not like there is a thread limit. That sends the wrong message to posters who may want to, and have the same right to, start a thread.

...the 9th highest rated QB in the league. Higher than Super Bowl winners Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Joe Flacco, and Russell Wilson.

 

If you're going to have an off night, that is the type of off night to have as a QB.

#4241477 Jaylon Smith's 1st game as a Cowboy

Posted by Ultron on 11 September 2017 - 03:01 AM

Superb performance!

Jaylon saved that interception from being taken away by the WR, forced a fumble that was stolen by the zebras, had some powerful tackles and looked explosive - very happy for him. I got to meet him last year and he's a phenomenal human being

#3982563 Stine Steen The Eagles fan chiming in on Sunday's game.

Posted by Stine Steen on 17 January 2017 - 06:24 PM

Listen Listen Listen. There should be no complaints from the Cowboys fanbase. Let me say this, there is one QB who makes that 3rd and 26 yrd play, and unfortunately, your team was playing against him that night. Aaron Rodgers is a freak of nature, and it was also a great catch along with concentration. No other QB in the league buys that extra time and puts the ball on the money like Rodgers. Your team was down 21-3 at one point. Let's not forget this. They fought back and lost because of a 1 in million type play.

 

Your team is now built to compete for years to come, so expect to be back in the same situation very soon. There shouldn't even be any QB controversy either. Dak is your guy. Zeke Elliott is an elite RB. This team will make it to a SB and possibly win it soon. A lot of teams aren't in your position. The sky has not fallen in Dallas. Keep your jerseys and season tickets. You have a lot of good football to come.

#4244249 Ratings, Jourdan Lewis/Zeke, and Conduct

Posted by Haimerej on 11 September 2017 - 07:09 PM

Ratings numbers are being delayed by Irma. When they continue their decline the hurricanes will be blamed just like the election last year. I expect the league will continue to ignore the countless surveys showing the anthem protests are turning off a large portion of the fandom.

The irony is they continue to promote something that's detrimental to the league by talking about Kaepernick not being on a team and highlighting players who continue to show the same disrespect.

Inside the NFL did a segment comparing Watt raising $20 million for storm victims to Kaepernick taking a knee. For those who can't see the difference- Watt simply asked people to help. He didn't attempt a disrespectful stunt which drew attention to himself. Kaepernick and others aren't drawing attention to their cause, they're needlessly disrespecting something many people believe we should unite under. It alienates people and betrays their own immaturity. Adults tackle issues head on. They don't purposefully disrespect other people and then play the victim when those people call them on their bull****.

The people of this country are good people. We see it in our response to these disasters. True, the issue Kaepernick wanted to highlight isn't as simple as just helping people in a disaster. But no one in this country supports police brutality.

If Kaepernick and others truly want to address the issue, they could lobby for better training of police in Use of Force options, community relations, or work to educate citizens on the best way to deal with law enforcement. But you only reach those conclusions by seriously considering the problem and genuinely wanting a solution.

Bad cops are out there and they should be dealt with. But grandstanding and condemning everyone with a badge or inflaming race issues is not the answer. It's childish and divisive.

People are tired of simplistic SJW crap. No one likes being condemned as some kind of, "-ist," for having a different opinion. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem SJW's are learning this lesson.

#4173618 my camp observation

Posted by Reid1boy on 27 July 2017 - 04:26 AM

Well we made another 2 days of camp this year, surrounded by golf, beer and dinner. Here are a few things:

 

1) The location of the camp continues to get worse. The space seems to dwindle a little each year. Parking was a joke on Monday. Cars were forced to park on the street, yet you couldnt go anywhere in a neighborhood for about 3/4 or more of a mile without a permit. So they welcome you to Oxnard, but tell you to get screwed for parking. On day 2, the street was now off limits to park, and it was a little confusing where we were supposed to go. The space for fans to stand around the field has gotten pretty small on the side of the field where the offense practices due to a housing development being built.

 

2) The cowboys united membership pissed me off this year. I clearly have a membership that expires on July 31 of 2017, yet they told me it was no good at training camp. It clearly says CURRENT MEMBERS check in. Yet when you check in they tell you that your CURRENT membership is no good. Huh????? Look, its only 20 bucks, but I am big on principle. Dont sell me a membership that is good for a year, but then do like the police with Lucky and say.... ooops, our bad, not really.

 

3) We went to day 1 and it was PACKED. If you ever plan on going, just skip day 1. It is worth it to stay away from the crowd and just go to day 2 and 3. Plus day 1 and 2 they arent in pads anyways.

 

4) Dez, I dont care if you like him or not, but he is a ROCK STAR. He is clearly THE fan favorite. He interacts with the crowd and clearly loves football and all that comes with it. He dances a little, responds with hand gestures, nods, blows kisses, and otherwise is just THE MAN. When practice ends, if he comes anywhere near the fence, it is like the Beatles. I have now seen this 2 years in a row(Got sigs both years on a painting and on my jersey). The crowds were crushing us on the fence trying to get to him..... He was messing with the crowd a little acting like he was going one way, then another,then once again walked straight up to where we were. Some of you may remember, but he stopped in the street for us last year to take a pic with us in his Bentley. While Dez is signing, most players are long gone off the field when practice ends. He doesnt need to do this, but he does.

 

5) T Will continues to be the most humble, respectful, and generous pro athlete I have ever seen. He stayed for at least 45 minutes signing everything and anything for every single person that asked him. He took pics, then when the pic didnt come out, he told the person hold on and Ill be right back to take another. 3 years in a row, and EVERY day I have attended, he is the last person leaving because he ensures  that every person asking him to sign, he takes the time to do it. How can you not root for this guy!

 

6) Switzer and Beasley have the same quickness. I was 10 feet away from them doing cone drills and hoola hoops drills.... I wish I would have times them as my guess is that Beasley and Switzer get in and out of cuts quicker than the bigger receivers. Switzer is quickly a fan favorite also. Him and Beasley look like clones of each other.

 

7) Jaylon looks great. He looked absolutely ready to go. Now keep in mind, He had no pads on and no real contact in my two days, but his quickness looked normal to me with zero limitations.

 

8) So many idiots in the crowd yelling non stop at players.... an unguarded WR jogging making a little catch I could make gets big oooohs and awwwwwws. Almost embarassing. Throw up the X Dez... like he is a circus animal. I do not say anything when these guys are standing 10 ft away just because I knwo they are working..... but I guess to each his own.

 

9) Dak looks very accurate on every throw he makes. His ball appears to have good zip to me and he is so comfortable out there.

 

10) Moore's ball just looks like it floats. Even in half speed passing drills with a defense, Moore stands back there and holds the ball forever. Again, im no coach, so maybe I dont know a damn thing about how long he is holding the ball in a drill.... but it just seemed like he took way to long to let it go.

 

11) Zeke is in full cotton sweats and a hoody under his jersey. Is he trying to lose weight? No clue, but I didnt see anyone else wearing a hoody.

 

12) The gold course next to training camp kicks my arse. First hole is like 570 yard par 5  up and over a hill. By the time we were at the last 4 holes I was exhausted. The last hole is an island that you must walk across a bridge to get to the green...... it needs to be hole 1 not 18:) But nothing like teeing off at 7, eating lunch, some craft beer and then to Cowboys practice.

 

Football is back!

#4146974 My Dad and the Cowboys

Posted by Bobhaze on 18 June 2017 - 02:32 PM

Fifty-three years ago this October, my Dad took me to my first Cowboys game. It was in the Cotton Bowl, and although I was only six years old, I remember great details about it. 

 

It was in October, 1964. I remember how beautiful the Cowboys uniforms were, especially the silver helmets and silver pants. And the natural grass looked so perfect. I got to see the great Jim Brown of the Cleveland Browns that day. In fact, because of his greatness, we lost that game. But I was hooked as a Cowboys fan forever, thanks to my Dad.   

 

Over the years, Dad took me and my little brother to several more games both in the Cotton Bowl and also at Texas Stadium. I got to see Don Meredith, Bob Hayes, Don Perkins, Bob Lily, Lee Roy Jordan, Mel Renfro, Roger Staubach, Cornell Green, Rayfield Wright, Drew Pearson, Tony Dorsett, Randy White, Harvey Martin, Too-Tall Jones and many others- all play in person.

 

And when I was a kid, we never missed a game on Sunday on TV. I can honestly say, I have probably watched a hundred Cowboys games with my Dad in the last 50+ years. I have seen every single Dallas Cowboys playoff game in their history on TV. My Dad is in his mid eighties now. I still love to watch the Cowboys with him when I can. I really, really want to see the Cowboys win another Lombardi before my Dad goes on to his reward. That would mean so much.

 

Happy Fathers Day to all the great Dads out there! Especially the Fathers of Dallas Cowboys Fans!

#4128465 Growing up a Cowboys fan

Posted by Erod on 23 May 2017 - 04:07 PM

It's a funny thing, getting old. You see it in the mirror, and you feel it in your bones, but you don't really sense it in your soul. You think and feel and fear and excite much the same as you did when you were 20, or even 10.

If you're blessed, you can timestamp your life episodically in personal meaning. It comes not just in memories, tragedy, accomplishments and kids, it also reminds in tastes and smells and feelings that you couldn't describe in a million characters. It just is. Because.

My favorite meaningfully meaningless linear life marker is this crazy game of football. More specifically, Cowboy football. It's carved indelibly into my "23-and-me", and it bridges all the gaps of age and time and change. It doesn't really make sense why, which is why it makes so damn much sense.

I've seen a lot of Cowboys football, and I especially love how it reaches, intentionally, to both the future and past at the same time. By my count, I'm on about my 5th era of America's most beloved and behated team, and I can divide those eras by an embarrassment of quarterback riches, with only a smidge of lack thereof. I came on board shortly after Staubach arrived from his Marvel duties, and rode shotgun through White, Aikman, Romo, and now Dak.

There were a couple of dark periods at that position along the way, but fortunately, I was in college during the first one, and in the throes of building my retirement egg during the second, so I came out unscathed without need of therapy. I survived.

It's not just me, which is what makes it so great. It warms my heart the way the 88s celebrate each other. To see Emmitt and Dorsett sitting side-by-side at the games, watching Zeke hurdle this era, it just wells me up inside. There's King Staubach attending every game, invested heavily in the outcome with the same vigor as us. Lilly, Too Tall, Woody, Big Nate, Mel, Cliff, and Charlie....they all relish in it, too.

So when Drew stood on that stage and punched Philly right in their @#!&-ing mouth, again, I physically stood up and punched the sky. I caught myself. I looked around. Nobody was in the room. I had a moment of self-reflection and audit, but I just shrugged and laughed.

To hell with it. I ain't growing up.

#4360963 ...Tony will be calling our game.

Posted by cowboyfan927 on 01 November 2017 - 04:50 PM

Says who? For the record the reason that CBS wanted to get rid of Phil Simms is because he was doing exactly what you guys are wishing Romo would do . Boring, droll description of what we just saw which isn’t necessary because unless we are Ray Charles we are fully aware of what we just saw

As a guy who never played football at professional level (like probably 99.99% of people on this forum) I think it’s pretty interesting and beneficial when a guy points out the nuances of a formation and the tendencies that develop out of different sets and formations. It helps me see the flow of the game better and have a better understanding of what the offensive and defensive guys are thinking as they react to what the other guy is doing

If you want to make the argument that he doesn’t need to do it on every play I’ll listen to that. But merely doing things the same way as everybody else has done them before Is boring and inconsequential

Keep up the great work Tony you are already one of the best color guys and getting better every week

Know the Offense better than any player on the team, knows Defenses better the most players on Offense, a Leader in the Locker Room, ONE year left on his contract. Tell me again why he should be cut?
