You lack the ability to see four dimensionally. You can only see the here and now. Seeing long term would require the homer type fan to put the endorphin rush of winning meaningless games in meaningless seasons aside for the betterment of the franchise long term. Jimmy Johnson understood this philosophy perfectly, and put it to use, so it's not like there isn't a historical lesson to be learned.I find it funny that fans actually have these kind of illusions that there could be a fan uprising. I also find it odd that any fan would be more interested in seeing the team humiliated than in seeing it succeed. I get the frustration, but what's the point of being a fan if you don't want the team to succeed?
In any case, the bulk of fans who sink their time and emotions into the team also keep it in perspective, and despite the ups and downs and frustrations and emotions, they ultimately realize football and the Cowboys are down the list of life priorities, well behind family, friends and work. So, they try and enjoy their entertainment options, understanding that part of the entertainment of football and the Cowboys is to fuel their competitive natures and invest their emotions, but also understanding that it can't be allowed to negatively impact their lives. So we move along, often frustrated, but keeping it in perspective relative to other priorities. Accordingly, there will be no uprising.
Make no mistake about any of us here. We all want the Cowboys to be more like the Patriots. We don't want the Cowboys to be the joke that Jerry has made them into. But we know that great sacrifices are going to need to be made in the here and now for that happen. The team must fail so hard that Jerry's hand is forced into at least switching coaching staffs, but we also know that he would likely hire Jeff Fisher or someone like that instead of a real coach who would take over. It is what it is.
We will remain in football purgatory until Jerry dies. We might have a chance after that unless little Stevie names himself god-emperor like his old man has.
