Johnny Manziel and Jerry Jones turn Dallas Cowboys fans against Texas

Football News

The city of Cleveland has been immersed in Manzielmania since the Cleveland Browns drafted the former Texas A&M as the 22nd overall pick in this years NFL draft.

It isn't just Cleveland fans with their eyes on Manziel however, the entire footballing world appears to be glued to the situation at the Browns.

When Browns head coach Mike Pettine came out earlier this week and said that Brian Hoyer would be his starting Quarterback going into training camp, some were shocked, some weren't.

Manziel is possibly the most publicised draftee ever and it will surely only get even more hyped should he see any time on the field for the Browns this season.

The Dallas Cowboys had the 16th overall pick of this years draft but elected to pass on the option of taking Manziel in favour of Notre Dame Guard Zack Martin.

Well the decision to pass on the biggest name in this years draft has proven to be too much for some Cowboys fans who have taken some drastic measures.

Residing in the town of Tyler, Texas, some Cowboys have not only declared their home town Browns Territory, they have gotten a billboard to prove it.

The Billboard that reads: "Tyler, TX is now Cleveland Browns territory"

Just below that, it reads "paid for by former Cowboys fans".

Clearly the Cowboys fans have had it with the questionable calls from Jones and lets face it this isn't the first one this off-season.

Off-season blunders

The off-season got off to a bad start for the Dallas Cowboys after a lot of speculation surrounding possibly their biggest name on defence, DeMarcus Ware.

Many people wondered about what would happen with Ware but in March, the Defensive-End was released by the Cowboys.

Perhaps more devastatingly, he signed with the Denver Broncos who have strengthened their defense a lot this off-season.

Ware being released was not greeted kindly by the Cowboys fans and clearly Jones will need to hope for a good Cowboys season to avoid severe outrage amongst fans.
