The Dallas Cowboys
. The term originated in a highlight film in 1978 about the football team. Many other teams have tried to steal the nickname but failed because apparently they're unable to come up with anything original themselves. It's like trying to call Saint Paul, Minnesota Hockeytown
- it's just not right; Detroit coined the term, thus it's theirs.
They appear on television so often that their faces are as familiar to the public as presidents and movie stars. They are the Dallas Cowboys, "America's Team."
-Bob Ryan, 1978
I love that on Thanksgiving day I can turn the TV on and always see America's Team playing.
It's been a while since America's Team won a Superbowl, hopefully Romo won't choke again this year.
Not the Dallas Cowboys, but the Green Bay Packers
as many people believe. First off, the Packers are not owned by a single person, but the city of Green Bay
and the stockholders. They are the only professional team to have this financial setup. The Cowboys, however, are owned by a redneck retard. Secondly, the Packers have 12 NFL championships, three of which were Super Bowls (I, II, and XXXI). Also, the Packers have won three consecutive championships not once, but twice, once with Lambeau and once with Lombardi. The reason that the Packers aren't recognized for these feats are because many people, including the sports writers on ESPN
, don't recognize the NFL championships won before the Super Bowl
era. The Dallas Cowboys, however, have only won 5 NFL championships. Lastly, the Packers have been in existence since 1919, joining the NFL
in 1921, and the Cowboys have only been in existence since 1960. So in conclusion, the Packers are the real America's Team because they represent humble beginnings, small town America, small town success, the caring support of a community, perseverance, the team owned and for the people, and the American Dream. The Cowboys, on the other hand, represent corporate America as a whole.
The Green Bay Packers are the real America's Team.
The Dallas Cowboys, cause they play on national TV every year on Thanksgiving, coined in 1976 by NFL films
Is America's team going to the Superbowl again, damn I wish my team was like them.
I gotta get home from church so I can watch America's Team lose again.
Not the Dallas Cowboys, but the Boston Red Sox. No team has more of a national following than the Red Sox. Their fans are even called "Red Sox Nation".
The Boston Red Sox are the REAL America's Team.
