Earlier in the day while responding to a fan’s question, the Dallas Cowboys took a jab at the Dallas Stars. The tweet was later deleted but as you can see, the Stars caught it before it went off the Internet.
In response to it, the Stars posted the above image, saying that their #9 can get the job done. That’s Mike Modano with the team’s Stanley Cup trophy.
After seeing this, I have to say this is pretty pathetic on both sides of the argument.
Jerry Brown 1987-2012
Yesterday’s tragedy involving Josh Brent and Jerry Brown was a wake up call to an already struggling NFL family. With players being caught with DUIs, possession of drugs and so many other problems, the NFL is being tarnished with players that just don’t know how to conduct themselves in public.
There was this piece written by Mike Freeman that summed up my thoughts on this perfectly.
The point that Freeman made that was very clear was that the players have been given so many opportunities to prevent these incidents yet they ignore it.
I have been on record about not being a fan of the Cowboys’ uniforms. And for good reason. Take a look at their uniform.
- Mismatching blues. There are three shades of it.
- The the silver on their helmet doesn’t match their pants.
- The sleeve stripes feature black, which isn’t part of the team colors.
- It’s like three different elements from three different teams thrown together in one.
- Plus their blue tops look nothing like their white jerseys. And they use different pants too.
But after watching some of Monday’s preseason game, I have realized that Nike has actually made the uniform worse.
As shown by the link above, Tony Romo’s sleeve stripes are actually at the bottom of the sleeve. That looks fine. But now, Nike has changed it.
Romo’s sleeve stripes are out of place.
