The Dallas Cowboys have always been and will always be America's Team

The Cowboys were given the nickname "America's Team" in 1978 and at the time, it made sense. But why has it stuck around despite years of losing records?

The Dallas Cowboys have been referred to as America's team for as long as I can remember. I never really thought about it too much because to me, it just made sense. Love them or hate them, everyone is talking about them. They are the one of the most well-known team, most talked about teams and they're all over front pages and TVs all the time.

You would think a team this popular has had lots of recent Super Bowl wins and success, right? Well, you'd be wrong. The Cowboys haven't made it to the Super Bowl since 1996, and they've had several losing and .500 seasons since then. Yet, the fan base never seems to waiver much and the loyal following continues. How did the Cowboys manage to become so popular despite the success of their team in the league?

It all comes down to the history and the loyalty of the fans.
