Yes, they are faithful fans.
For years, fans of the Dallas Cowboys loved to come into the Meadowlands every year for the annual New York Giants vs. Cowboys game. They came in large amounts. Sometimes there were more Cowboys fans than Giants fans.
Being that this is the first time since 1993 that the Cowboys are facing the New York Jets in the new MetLife stadium, you can expect more of the same.
Not so fast.
When asked if he expects to see Cowboys fans in the stands, Jets head coach Rex Ryan had a message to send:
“I don’t know why they’d be here,” the Jets coach said Wednesday. “They’re coming into our stadium. It’s probably not recommended that you wear Cowboys stuff, I would think.”
The love for the Cowboys must run in the family. Ryan’s father, Buddy Ryan, made no secret about his distaste for them either.
“Of course, when that’s one of your huge rivals, well of course you dislike them,” Rex Ryan said. “This week, I can’t stand Dallas, but I’m a huge fan of theirs for the next 15 games in the regular season, but I don’t like them right now.”
