Rivalries in sports go beyond the athletes that play.
Fans feel like they’re part of the rivalry, also. So when Cowboys LB Micah Parsons congratulated Eagles tackle Lane Johnson and told him to win the Super Bowl, Cowboy fans weren’t too happy about it.
Many fans felt that Parsons shouldn’t be rooting for their NFC East rival to win, and he doesn’t care. Parsons had a lot to say about the people who criticized him for wanting Johnson and the Eagles to win the Super Bowl after it was called the lowest moment for the Cowboys.
“You people are sick! You will sit in your own misery because of lack of accomplishments than root for others!! I have no Shame! The league is a brotherhood ! I’ll never pray down on another man success nor be ashamed to say I’m happy for my brothers success!”
Some fans were happy, and some still didn’t like it.
You can’t please everyone.
