Jazman makes me hate the Cowboys less than I feel I should, SLIII makes me hate them more. So anyone to win other than the Cowgirls please.

Think this one is going to be close, just as the other 3 games all haven't. Last second FG for packers win 37-34.

Honestly cannot express my pure, unwavering hatred of the Yankees. They disgust me in every way. That is for another thread though I'm sure

jazman 10-01-2010 09:38 PM

I'm looking forward to this one as I have no real preference either way ... two very similar teams ...

Most of the people here chose the team just because they share the Eagle name with Palace.

Philly - crap team, wank fans :D

Great way to make enemies. Well done :clown:

On November 23, 1989, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Buddy Ryan found himself at the center of yet another controversy. The Eagles defeated Dallas by a score of 27-0, Dallas' only Thanksgiving game shutout. During the lopsided game, vitriol came to the surface on the field as the rivals got into several skirmishes; most notably when Dallas placekicker Luis Zendajas left the game with a concussion following a hard tackle by linebacker Jessie Small after a kickoff.

Following the game, broadcast on CBS with Pat Summerall and John Madden calling the game, Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson alleged that Ryan had taken out a bounty on two of his players, Dallas (and former Philadelphia) kicker Luis Zendejas and quarterback Troy Aikman. Johnson said:[citation needed]
I have absolutely no respect for the way they played the game, I would have said something to Buddy, but he wouldn't stand on the field long enough. He put his big, fat rear end into the dressing room.

Zendejas claimed that when he was with the Eagles, a player had once received $200 $100 each for hits on a punter and kicker. This is what led his coach Jimmy Johnson to make the accusation that a bounty had existed in this game as well.[citation needed]

Buddy Ryan responded to Johnson's accusations:[citation needed]
I resent that. I've been on a diet, lost a couple of pounds. I thought I was looking good.

This game marked the first time a most valuable player was picked for a Thanksgiving game. John Madden handed out the first "Turkey Leg Award" to Reggie White. Such an award became an annual Thanksgiving tradition among CBS and Fox (and later, the NFL Network).

In 2008, the game was included on a list of the ten most memorable moments in the history of Texas Stadium by ESPN.[1]

This series of events set the stage for the scheduled rematch two weeks later in Philadelphia, dubbed "Bounty Bowl II."

After rumors spread that Eagles coach Buddy Ryan had put a bounty out on Dallas kicker Luis Zendejas during the first meeting two weeks earlier, the Eagles fans were more than rowdy when the rematch was held in Philadelphia.

CBS Sports touted the game as "Bounty Bowl II," complete with wanted posters and the offending players, with the bounty posted, as part of the network's pre-game opening, and it lived up to its expectations as a media event. With NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue in attendance on gameday December 10, 1989, the Veterans Stadium crew did not remove the snow that had piled up for several days. The volatile mix of beer, plentiful snow, the bounty and the intense hatred for "America's Team" led to the Eagles' notoriously rowdy fans throwing everything within reach. Notable targets included back judge Al Jury, who was knocked to the ground by a barrage of snowballs; Cowboys punter Mike Saxon, who was targeted in the end zone; and Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson, who was hit with snowballs, ice, and beer as he was hastily escorted off the field by Philadelphia Police. Johnson later called the fans "thugs".[citation needed]

Verne Lundquist and Terry Bradshaw announced the game for CBS, and they spent the afternoon denouncing Eagles fans and dodging snowballs aimed at the broadcast booth (broadcast booths are traditionally open during broadcasts). Even the Eagles' players were struck. As Eagles defensive lineman Jerome Brown stood on the players' sideline seats pleading for the fans to stop throwing things, he too was hit.

Future Pennsylvania governor and Eagles fan Edward Rendell got caught up in the fallout from that game when he admitted to a reporter that he was involved in the bedlam. The then-former Philadelphia district attorney and future mayor and governor had bet another fan $20 that the fan couldn't reach the field with a snowball; Rendell lost.[2] As a result of the chaotic melee, the team added security and banned beer sales for their last remaining home game of the regular season.

The Eagles won the game 20-10.

DAL 20 @ PHI 16

PHI 0 @ DAL 24

PHI 14 @ DAL 34

I like Kurt. I feel the Packers are a bigger threat to us. An overtime game would be nice :p

i think we'd be happier to exchange banter with you, if you'd been here all season with the highs and lows, rather than just jumping on now and spouting crap right left and centre.

You can enjoy this season, we've enjoyed 10 years of being better than you, and we'll be better again next season. :p

wtf is going on in arizona?

ardeo 10-01-2010 09:56 PM

Are the packers the Patriots in disguise. Could well be 3 out of 4 upsets in the wildcards. Think Packers have got more than enough to come back in this one though.

jazman 10-01-2010 09:56 PM

Is this the Pats wearing green and yellow? ;)

jazman 10-01-2010 09:57 PM

Beat me to it ardeo :D

"A series of other factors heightened tensions during the 1980s and 1990s, including several provocative actions by Philadelphia fans and Eagles head coach Buddy Ryan. Among these were the 1989 "Bounty Bowls," in which Ryan allegedly placed a bounty on Dallas kicker Luis Zendejas and Veterans Stadium fans pelted the Cowboys with snowballs and other debris."

"A 1999 game at Philadelphia saw Eagles fans cheering as Michael Irvin lay motionless and possibly paralyzed on the field."

As I said before.....
