Cowboys Fans Deal With Loss By Fighting Packers Fan, Their Televisions

For most of the civilized world, the drama of Sunday's divisional-round games was a welcomed change from the previous six snoozefests that had some of us wondering whether the NFL Playoffs had lost their mojo. But for Dallas Cowboys fans, the non-stop tension of their rollercoaster match-up with the Green Bay Packers only made the game's outcome more heartbreaking. That's now twice in three years that the Cowboys have finished out a dominant regular season campaign with a devastating January loss to the Packers, and fans are dealing with the pain by exacting revenge on both humans and flatscreens alike.
Here's a nice little reminder that NFL games are not the safest places in the sports world...
And here we have yet another regrettable decision by a man who decided the crushing 34-31 loss justified the destruction of a TV that, in all likelihood, cost as much as a flight and a ticket to the game.
Upon being notified that Cowboys fans were reacting with such emotional force, the league office has gone ahead and overturned the outcome of the game, granting the team its first NFC Championship appearance in 22 years because clearly these people deserve to see that.
Great job, guys. Your righteous indignation has saved the day.
