    Vermeil: I taped Dallas before the NFC Championship in 1981

    Vermeil: 'I taped Dallas before the NFC Championship in 1981.'

    Former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Dick Vermeil admitted yesterday to taping Dallas before his team played in the NFC Championship game on January 11, 1981.

    "I was a huge fan of the show and I didn't want to miss an episode," said a choked up Vermeil.

    The coach never publicly talked about the show and its numerous popular characters until now. "J.R. was great but liking a show based in Dallas wasn't going to go over well in Philly." In 1981 the show was in its third season and growing audiences loved it. Vermeil said he often hummed the show's theme song while he studied film in Veterans Stadium.
    The Eagles beat the Cowboys,20-7, to go to the Super Bowl in 1981 but both NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Sen. Arlen Spector of Pennsylvania agreed that taping Dallas before the game gave no advantage to the Eagles. Additionally, both men could not believe that Sue Ellen put up with J.R.'s nonsense for as long as she did.

    Jesus man don't make jokes like that! You just cut a year off my life expectancy with the elevated bloodpressure I just had when I saw this

    I was afraid I'd have to lump Vermeil, who I have a great deal of respect for, in with assholes like Belicheck.

    Especially at first on the front page where you only see part of the long headline I only saw "Vermiel: I taped Dallas..." and not the year so I was thinking he had done it while with the Rams! Good one though, good one

    Got me! That's funny! My first thought was, oh no, a possible reason to let Belicheat off the hot seat. Glad he's still dangling over the fire.

    LOL!!! Same here. Good one, BTimsah!

    Let's remember that what Coach Vermeil really wanted to see was...the Cowgirl Cheerleaders!

    Nice of you to mention that, BT. You may have gotten it from The Spoof but you brought here and it's good. That's what counts.

    I have avoided reading this since it was posted because I didn't want to believe it, but you really got me good once I did.
