Is Dallas still "America's Team"? I am not quite sure. If they are, say why. If they aren't who is, and why? Thanks.

That's true. That's how it is out here in Cali with the Lakers. If you like Lakers, you hate the Kings. If you like the Kings, you hate the Lakers, on and on and on... Im glad I stay out of it with being a Nuggets fan... but yea I think the Yankees are possibly "America's Team"

The whole "America's Team" nonsense was started by the media. They chose Dallas for football and the Braves for baseball. I don't think there ever were teams "selected" in the NBA or the NHL. Everyone thinks the Cowboys themselves started that, but that just isn't true. I think some of it had to do with Tex Schramm and Tom Landry. They were considered "gentlemen" in a game of brutality.

Seems to me that the Patriots would be more fitting as the new "Americas team".

Stars and stripes....patriot....no outstanding individuals...just overall great "team".

You have a valid arguement.
However, the New England Patriots fail to carry around that intangilbe quality that other teams like the Packers or Steelers enjoy. You know, that karma, I'm not sure of the word I'm looking for but I think you know what I mean.

one reason i think cowboys are americas team is cuz the good ole folks root for them. In oklahoma, nebraska, kansas, most of the middle of the country, they all root for dallas cuz theyre the only team there is.

I guess you would expect that from the ONLY country that actually plays the game professionaly! (you cant really count Canada, and the UK teams wouldnt be too much of a challenge)

Gawd I hate the Dallas Cowboys and have never understood or liked the fact that they are/were called America's Team. (Still looking for a puking smiley)

chickennob2: What the heck is that in Al's mouth? LMAO! ??? :goofy:

The Cowboys are not Americas team

they are like the Packers, 49ers, and Raiders. They have a huge fan base, but more haters than any other team (excluding Philly) in the NFL.

they are a team that people that don't live in an area with a team like to root for, but they are definatly not Americas team.

No team from Texas will ever be Americas team. Texans are to proud to be Texans to even call there team the All American Team.
