Default A new Dallas fan

Hi guys,

Just thought i would say hello as a new dallas fan. not been into the nfl long, thought i had chosen the panthers as my team but in speaking to a relative found that my family has history supporting the cowboys! so i've jumped aboard and i'm looking to bring myself up to date.

Been following the league for a year, so im aware of all the current players. Can anyone give me a few key past ones? ive heard about sanders and aikman.

also, what are you guys' hopes for this year, last week was relatively impressive i thought

cheers
nick

These are a few from the 80s...Tony Dorsett, Herschel Walker, Michael Irvin and the legendary Tom Landry.

The Cowboys are rich in history, and we have many greats. The only place to start is with Roger Staubach.

Hey Nick,

Welcome to the Cowboys Nation family.

Past players look at ones like Roger Staubach, Charles Haley, Ken Norton JR, Bob Lilly to name just a few.

I believe we can have a 10-6 season. The Giants game was impressive and got us off to the perfect start.

Don't forget to check out the UK Cowboys fan club on Facebook and on twitter @UKCowboysfans

Haha! I was listed as one yes, but i've been in contact with family for the last two weeks and thought i would suss it all out at the weekend. Loved the performance last week and where this team are going. I'm sure the panthers have much success ahead of them, don't worry i'm not that stupid

Thanks for the starter info guys, ill have a look into the past and check some highlights out.

I'll also be a regular contributor to the forums, so i look forward to chatting with you all soon
