Did you even read my post? I didn't say anything about the fans, I was referring to the talking heads like Marcellus Wiley and others who think Dallas is going to win the division this year. My point was that I haven't seen ONE talking head favor us, the defending division and super bowl champions which is like a slap in the face. It's almost as if the media refuses to acknowledge our team, but like you said we play better under the radar. It just boggles my mind why none of these guys think we are going to win the division this season when we should be considered the favorite. These people are self proclaimed experts in their field, so that is why I care about media perception. People who do not follow football closely actually take what these people say at face value, so yes media perception is important.
