    Anytime the Cowboys lose is satisfying.

    I'm guessing you've been enjoying the past 20 years?

    Do Cowboys fans hate the Redskins as much as Redskins fans hate the Cowboys, or is it one of those one-way rivalries?

    Both teams have sucked for 20 years, so it's not like there's some big relevance gap.

    I've always viewed it as a second-tier rivalry (though I was born in '88 fwiw). But living in Virginia, I see a lot of anti-Cowboys license plates :revolve:

    It doesn't have the same impact as Ravens-Steelers, Manning-Brady type of games


    Green Bay - Chicago??

    Rams-Niners is another classic NFL rivalry.

    The division rivalries are always the strongest because they see each other so much, and there's plenty of opportunity to revisit feuds and create bad blood.

    Dolphins and Jets have sucked longer than the Cowboys, but whenever NYJ comes to town you can pencil in a few hundred drunken brawls and arrests.

    Rams-Seahawks is a budding rivalry, friend

    The Seahawks are Johnny-come-latelys so to speak. Plus the rivalry is so one-sided to where the Rams fans have an attitude of indifference.

    Not really hatred from either side. Redskins-Cowboys is like a rivalry between two siblings who are very close in age. Each wants to beat the other badly, but there is underlying respect. Eagles and their fans, on the other hand, are like the blue-collar, asshole neighbor down the street. We just hate them.


    Redskins-Cowboys started in the 1970s when George Allen was the Redskins' head coach, and got huge in the 1980s. There may be some NFL rivalries that are as good, but there are none that are better. Certainly better than Ravens-Steelers (which started in 1996) and Manning-Brady (which isn't really a rivalry because they don't play each other directly).

    The Giants/Eagles/Skins-Cowboys rivalries all share the same common thread... Texas and everything it represents sucks and the Cowboys are the mascot.

    That is also the source of the Jaguars/Texans rivalry, which is one of the most "heated" in all of sport.

    it's because Texans irrationally, unjustifiably and obnoxiously believe that everything from Texas is the best.

    which is the exact same problem that New Yorkers suffer from :fence:

    You just haven't experienced summer in a NYC subway. You don't even know.

    My grandparents have been lifelong Redskins fans, and they've always gotten geeked up for the Cowboys in a unique way. I can get the respect vibe though.

    Maybe it's because my grandpa is from Texas. There's no zeal like the convert.

    Very much enjoyed Brady vs. Manning 16. Barely even yelled at the TV.
