The Dallas Cowboys are known as “America’s Team”. Here are 5 reasons the Dallas Cowboys aren’t “America’s team”.

“America’s team comes from the teams 1978 NFL Films highlight film. This is its origin. Someone wrote a script just like many other NFL Films team yearbooks of the time like “Autumn Wind”.
John Facenda read the script, that was written over music and NFL highlights. Facenda’s was the first voice calling Dallas “America’s Team”. IT WAS JUST A SCRIPT, THERE WAS NO NATIONAL CENSUS ON AMERICA’S FAVORITE FOOTBALL TEAM.
The main difference is that the Raiders franchise doesn’t claim to have created Autumn or its wind.
Many NFL fans remember the 1974 Raiders NFL Films highlight video too. It starts with this poem
The Autumn Wind is a pirate
Blustering in from sea,
With a rollicking song, he sweeps along,
His face is weather beaten.
He wears a hooded sash,
With a silver hat about his head,
And a bristling black mustache.
Philadelphia is the nations first capital and a major city in America. The “Alpha”, Philly doesn’t consider the Cowboys “America’s Team”.
Still Cowboys fans talk a lot still in 2022. Good for you Dallas, you won five Super Bowls, congratulations.
The Last time “America’s Team” won a Super Bowl, dial up modems were considered cutting edge technology.
They have been the champions of the NFL four times. It counts the same if you win the NFL championship game or the Super Bowl. The winners of both games are NFL champions.
New York, Washington, California
When you think of the United States of America, you can’t not think of New York, California, and/or the nations current capital, Washington D.C.
None of these places recongnize the Cowboys as “America’s Team”. Just watch this video, it’s like this.
State of Texas
I have to believe that if the Dallas Cowboys were truly “America’s Team” that at least the entire state of Texas would agree and be Cowboys fans
After the Houston Oilers moved to Tennessee, the wheels started to bring in a new franchise, the Houston Texans. If everyone in Texas thought the Cowboys were “America’s Team” billionaires wouldn’t have seen dollar signs at the prospect of bringing another franchise to Texas.
The Texans had a more successful franchise over the last 10-12 seasons than Dallas has too.
If Philly, New York, California, Washington, New England (not just Boston) and some of Texas don’t consider the Cowboys “America’s Team”, WHO ACTUALLY DOES.
The Autumn Wind is a Pirate but the Cowboy is a liar, lacking verity, a trickster spewing falsity, trying to convince a nation, what even some of his neighbors think is a falsehood.
The Dallas Cowboy is a Liar. GET FACENDA ON THAT SH**. FLY EAGLES FLY.
