I want to look at just one more angle.

Let us SUPPOSE that you could only choose one of the

1. When it comes to civic pride on the national level and
pertaining to football, who is going to be Arlington's
Home Team? (Nevermind your home team, but that of

Will it be:

The Jones'es Team from Dallas
(not from here, and not bearing the Arlington name)
The UTA Mavericks
(the original hometown team, with given name)

2. If there are only two days in the weekend, and you need
one of them to do yardwork, paybills, spend time with the
wife/husband, visit your mom, go to church, or finish that
little house project (the one that you saw on t.v.),
use the other to go to a football game, possibly tailgate,
then maybe even spend the afternoon carousing?
Which game would you choose?

Will it be:
The Jones'es team from Dallas
your Alma Mater, UT Arlington?

And finally, marketing, the end all be all.
Suppose you did not want to litter your car with too much
paraphenalia, such as bumper stickers. In the example of a
bumper sticker, SUPPOSE that both UTA and the Cowboys had
a winning tradition, who then would you spend money on,
for a bumper sticker?

Will it be:
The Jones's team from Dallas
Your Home Team, the UTA Mavericks?

This is of course all theoretical, but I think that each
is a fair question.

It demonstrates a clear point in the composition of the
UTA audience. I think Spaniolo is going to want to know
where loyalties lie. So just SUPOOSE, that these were
questions that YOU HAD to answer, suppose these were your
only two choices and you could only choose one.

[Disclaimer: This is only a test. This is not an actual decision. Were this an actual decision, you'd probably be hot in the pants. This is only a test].

-Peace and hairgrease
