  • Why longtime Giants fans hate the Cowboys.

    The Tom Landry years. It was ugly.

    'Nuff said.

    Considering Landry was a Giant, they conduct themselves completely opposite to the way the Giants do. Braggadocios, flashy, boastful, all sizzle no steak. Showboating. Cheerleaders. Theatrics. Carnival atmosphere. Granted it is worse in the Jerry Jones era but it was that way even in Landry's days. They stand for the opposite of everything Wellington Mara did. I am tempted to believe Landry kept his focus on coaching the team and the owners (Schram?) did their own thing.

      I disagree. I didn't hate the Cowboys back then because they were so good and we were so bad. It wasn't a real rivalry in my opinion.

        I've always believed that this team was the most annoying in all of sports history.




        It was a ridiculously good team that received a ton of attention. They were the best and then they would make moves like, signing Deion Sanders. It was unfair and they rubbed it in your face.

          I still don't get the cowboys hate... it's a division rivalry, yes, but most cowboys fans I meet in real life are people more like ntegrase, fans of their franchise, but respectful human beings first.

          Philly has a lot more to hate... their ****hole of a city, soulless fanbase that will cut you just for wearing the color blue on sunday, and al davis style of management that thought getting Michael Vick was a good idea. Not to mention, anyone remember the "dream team"?

          Oh and I would totally punch Desean Jackson in his ****ty face if that wasn't considered a felony...

          I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

            Not living down in DFW area, dallas fans like Grase are few and far between, 90% of them are complete idiots that tell you they are going to win the superbowl becasue they are americas team. No other facts to support their argument but that, and if you try and have an intellectual debate about why they are better the response it WE ARE AMERICAS TEAM. I can't tell you how happy I am when i find a Dallas fan that i can actually just talk football with and not have my IQ drop just being in the same room.

              I became a Giants fan in 1993. That was the peak of the Cowboys era and I loathed that team. Irvin, Smith, and Aikman would beat us in close games or humiliate the Gmen 35-0. One of the most satisfying wins I ever saw was in 1997 when the Danny Kanell Giants blew out Dallas and Irvin was crying on the sidelines. The hate is not as intense anymore as Dallas has become more comical than anything during the Romo years.

                My only hatred toward the Cowboys is because of Jerry Jones and nothing else.

                  I think the problem is because football is so prevalent in the area.

                  You'd think everyone would learn a thing or two about football growing up around the whole 'Friday Night Lights' culture.

                  Yeah, they love football, but they don't understand it. And it's usually going to be the people that only have a surface level understanding that boast and have the loudest opinions.

                  Overall, I think there are far more casual fans in the area than there are anywhere else because it's the "cool thing to do"/norm to like football at any level here.

                      I think I hated Emmitt Smith the most. Early 90s got me to really hate the Cowboys.

                          I'm sure many longtime cowboys fans hate us as well. Its called a rivalry. I hate the cowboys, eagles and redskins all the same. 95% of the people on this message board weren't even alive to see Landry coach anyways..

                          And that's a not a knock to the OP about his age..

                          If it wasn't for my grandfather and eventually my dad telling me stories of the old time Giants players I wouldn't be nearly as passionate about the team as I am now..

                              You could say i hated the phil simms g's team back in mid 80s. My very first dallas game was against the giants on a monday night. I remember during warmups before the game yelling at lawrence taylor that he sucked. He started walking towards me and i ran up the stadium lol....we won that night btw


                              Now that iam older i dont really 'hate' teams. I love the division rivalries...trash talking is really part of the fun of it all. My bro is a die hard skins fan so its fun to argue with him weekly
