Everything may be bigger in Texas, but does it really need another football team?
Eric Johnson, the mayor of Dallas, certainly thinks so. Last week, he took to Twitter and responded to a tweet from the NFL on CBS account asking which city the league should pick for an expansion team.
“The answer is Dallas. Why? We are about to pass the Chicago metro and become the #3 metro in the US, which would make us the largest US metro WITHOUT 2 teams,” Johnson wrote. “Football is king here. Dallas needs an expansion team and we would be able to sustain 2 @NFL teams better than LA or NY.”
Jerry Jones would fight tooth and nail for that to never happen, because it would mean he would possibly lose fans and money. It’s a nice dream to have, but it would certainly have to happen after he is dead and gone.
The most recent Super Bowl appearance and victory for the Dallas Cowboys was in 1996 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Even with all the failures since then, the Cowboys remain the most popular and polarizing team in the entire league.
They are watched the most because fans want to see them and haters want to see them lose.
