Behind the Star: Embracing the Pride and Tradition of Dallas Cowboys Fans

What it Means to be a Dallas Cowboys Super Fan

The Dallas Cowboys are known as “America’s Team” for a reason. They have some of the most supportive and die-hard fans in all of the NFL. The Cowboys haven’t made it to the Super Bowl since 1996, but their fans still come out in droves. A recent study conducted by Sidelines that used eight different metrics, including social media engagement, attendance totals and money spent on merchandise, concluded the Cowboys have the best fans in the NFL. The team’s fan base is apparent in nearly every major city across the United States.

The Dallas Cowboys truly became America’s Team between 1963-1983, when they won more games than any other team and had a winning record for 20 straight seasons between 1966 and 1985. The Cowboys and their fans are led by Owner, President and General Manager Jerry Jones. Jones holds the record for the first owner in NFL history to lead his team to three Super Bowl titles within the first seven years of ownership.

Memorable Moments in Dallas Cowboys Fandom

A key moment in Dallas Cowboys history was their sweet revenge over the San Francisco 49ers in the 1992 NFC Championship. This was the beginning of the Cowboys 1990s dynasty team, where the Cowboys won three Super Bowls during the 1992, 1993 and 1995 seasons. These were the glory years for the Dallas Cowboys and their fans. Popularity for the Cowboys boomed after the three Super Bowl wins, however what is more impressive is how the fans for the team continued to grow, even though the team has not won a Super Bowl since that 1995 season.
