If I were an "inadequate player" playing for Jerry Jones, I think I'd let the Redskins put up a 40 burger on me this week.

Screw that guy.

Both are very, very good points.  But, for the latter, it won't happen.  At least not wholesale.  It will end up that a chunk of people will be extraordinarily fired up and go after Cousins and the Skins with a vengeance.  Another chunk will just lay down, and you'll end up with players yelling at each other on the sidelines, with the layers pointing angrily to the owner's box.

Of course, there will still be the third chunk, that really are inept and just don't know it, that will do their usual without us being able to tell what side they're on.

And there'll also be one player who heads to the locker room in the middle of the 4th quarter so we don't see him crying because all his teammates are bickering.

Why the hell did the article spiral into a lacy vs bell argument?

No controversy there, each team got the best RB for their system. Lacy can't perform the screen as well as bell. Bell can't hit the back of his olineman for a dearly needed 2yds like lacy can.

/and both are on my fantasy team!

Does Jones pay someone to submit all these farking Cowboy articles to Fark?

Or is it Snyder? Either way, I can't fathom why so much space gets devoted to a .500 team. Is it because their WR is a head case? Is it because their QB has a really obnoxious smirk? Is it the awful defense?

This pisses me off to no end. I spent years working with people with emotional disorders and the number one thing they were taught to do was to walk away from situations they couldn't handle.

Was it professional? No
Was it what I would expect from one of my star players? No
Do I know whether or not he had a legitimate need to get out of there? No

So how about we don't crucify the guy when we have exactly 0 information on what he might/might not've been dealing with.

If RGIII's backup was Suckass McPracticeSquader, then I could see the Redskins just kneeling for three downs and punting on every possession as a "fark you" to everyone around them, but I think Cousins is good enough to maybe get the Matt Flynn treatment from someone desperate this offseason and has every incentive to play well (plus I think his teammates like him...not that they hate RGIII but I'm just saying).

If Dez didn't have a checkered past (one in which I think just two or three seasons ago some Cowboys fans here were willing to just cut him out of spite) the media would be much more lenient on him.

Didn't Andre Johnson walk off the field before a game was officially over a few weeks ago (and shortly after he gave Schaub an earful on the sidelines)? No one cared because Johnson's only known transgression was beating the snot out of one of the league's most hated players. Being a productive player and having a good rep for a long time buys you amnesty.

That's kind of the point.  As Cowboy fans, we want to know what issues our star receiver is dealing with.

I think Jerry should take over as GM and head coach.  THAT would be awesome to see.

There, people sympathized with Johnson because even white fans have the universal agreement that Schaub is craptacular.  But whenever an African American player acts in such a way that white fans (and the media) don't agree with, their "diva" or "thug" or "whiny" behavior is brought up immediately.

Come on. This is satire right? These get submitted by haters. The Cowboys are the perfect storm of Schadenfreude. Bad and arrogant owner with unrealistic expectations. Poor management. Poor coaching. Past success. Obnoxious fans (although I don't see many on Fark). Heavy ESPN coverage. Personally, I wish there were more Vikings stories on Fark, but if they all turned into shiat-fests like the Cowboys threads, I'm glad there aren't.

No, Brady's a little biatch.


Why do you have to bring race into it?


Because it is reality.  You can pick one or two players that fans "hate," like Cutler, but he's rarely ever called names by the national media and opinion writers.  When he was called a wimp for not finishing the playoff game, that was extraordinary, and the commentators fell over themselves to apologize to him when they discovered the severity of his injury.  I don't hear much about Cutler anymore.  But again, whenever you have Richard Sherman or Dez Bryant or Percy Harvin or DeSean Jackson or RGIII, they are immediately called names.  Hell, Bleacher Report, hardly the bastion of sports journalism, has an article calling Bryant and Jackson "divas."  ESPN had a long article talking about the "diva scale," where all of the players mentioned were African American.

But when Tom Brady acts like a tool, he's "defiant" and "impassioned."  There's a huge gulf in how the media and fans treat their players, and it has been like this since day one.

Is it me or are the worst NFL teams the ones with the most hyper-involved owners? Jones, Snyder and until recently Al Davis?

Causation/Correlation? Do we hear from the owners more because their teams suck or do certain teams suck because the owners get in the way of possibly talented people doing personnel work and game planning?
