Skip to comments.Justice Scalia: ‘I Hate The Redskins’ (Cowboys fan)
Posted on 09/09/2013 8:03:13 AM PDT by Perdogg
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalias opinions are often viewed as controversial.
This time, however, a question posed by the Houston Chronicle to the justice elicited an answer that may anger a new group of people football fans in Washington, DC.
Im not really much of a football fan, he told the paper, when asked whether or not he supports the Washington Redskins. To the extent I am, I hate the Redskins. In fact, I always root for Dallas, Scalia replied.

I like Scalia so much that I’m switching to the Cowboys.
Heh! I love Scalia.
Scalia spoke at our rotary club in northern Virginia...he received a standing ovation, even from the lefties...I just can’t bring myself to root for the Cowboys though.
I always knew Scalia was a racist...
No one said you had to be smart to be a SC Justice.
True, look at some of the SCOTUS rulings in the past decade or so to see the truth in it
Scalia is dead to me.
My two favorite NFL teams are the Raiders and whoever is playing the Cowboys.
Why in the world did Tony Romo get the game ball last night. His playing was pathetic? And what does Jones see in him that he pays him $100 million?
Another reason to love Scalia!
As for this: “I always knew Scalia was a racist...”
Pretty good. :)
I give him credit for at least using the term “Redskins.”
They get 6 turnovers and they barely win...doesn’t bode well for their season.
Romo played a nearly flawless game. The INT was not his fault, he commanded his checks very well - read the defense well. The O-line protected him much better than in the past, but he still had guys draped on him.
His release is so quick. He may be among the NFL elite if the Cowboys could put a running game around him. We’ll see how he stacks up not playing from behind and if his line protects him.
He is way better than many give him credit for.
Show us on this doll where Justice Scalia touched you . . . .
I was rooting for Dallas last night.
The saintly Scalia reveals that he has a flaw after all. To hell with Dallas!
There are two games each year where I root for the Giants. Same goes for the Eagles.
I also like Green Bay.
I’ll be rooting for the Broncos on October 6 and the Packers on December 15.
I’ll be rooting for New England on 11/24.
Tell me what Romo did last night that was pathetic. Romo didn’t try to force the ball down field, he took what the defense gave him. His one INT was on the WR. Romo played a pretty good game. So again, please point out where his performance was pathetic.
The defense did most of the scoring. How many touchdowns did Romo engineer during the first half? By the way, I too, am a Cowboy fan—have been for 40 years.
He did not score the first half, while New York played like crap. If the Giants had played even an average game of the old Oilers the Cowboys would have lost. Even the Giants coach and the commentators said that was the worst game they ever saw the Giants play. And if Ely had not been intercepted the last drive, it is very probable that the Giants would have tied up the game, and who knows what overtime would bring? Romo has to go.
You still haven’t shown where Romo’s performance was terible. Romo played well he took the throws the defense gave him. He didn’t force anything. Much of the Cowboys problems stem from play calling and lack of a running game. While the defense forced 6 turnovers, they did allow Manning to pass for over 400yds and 4 TD’s. Romo doesn’t play defense. So again be specific and point out Romo’s bad play last night.
Romo played a nearly flawless game.<<
4 turnovers and only 3 points?
I am not sure what game you were watching. Maybe one with Rodger Staubach throwing to Drew Pearson...
When I started traveling to DC after I moved to Dallas, the TSA guys in DC would inevitably look at my TX license and as “are you a Cowboys Fan?”
My answer is always the same:
“When you move to Dallas, they staple one of those giant foam ‘Cowboys #1’ fingers to your forehead.
It isn’t a choice...”
(always gets a laugh)
