In news that should come as a surprise to no one, the fact that former Cowboys’ fullback Daryl Johnston hasn’t played football in over a decade hasn’t made citizens of Philadelphia any bigger fans of him, apparently. Johnston, of course, was part of the Cowboys’ dynasty in the 1990s, and therefore a pretty memorable player in the heated rivalry between the Cowboys and Eagles.
Ipso facto, as we learned from a recent interview on 1310 The Ticket, Philadelphians still greet Johnston today as they might’ve greeted him in, say, 1995.
“They flip me the bird in Philly,” Johnston said, via the Dallas Morning News. “It's good. There are Cowboys fans everywhere. People recognize me as Moose. I think that'll always be a part of who I am. It's fun. We have Cowboy fans in Washington, New York, Philadelphia, all over the country. When you talk about America's Team, I think the moniker for the Dallas Cowboys really fits because we have a fan base that extends to every city.”
