When you run a team Twitter account, it might not be a great idea to report that a highly sought-after free agent, who was extensively linked to your franchise, is going to another franchise instead
But that’s what the fine folks running the Cowboys Twitter account went and did, y’all. They decided to tell their fans that Earl Thomas is headed to Baltimore via their “free agency tracker,” seen right here:
Earl Thomas has agreed to a four-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens.

The responses from jilted p̶o̶s̶e̶r̶s̶ fans are very good, after the jump:
Why would you do this to me?

Sorry, Scooter Magruder.
And here’s one from “Nappy Head Ass” –
F*** y’all…who the hell reports s*** like this knowing what the fans want as well as what @Earl_Thomas was looking for…I’m sick of being a damn #DallasCowboys fan…sign us some new DB’s damnit…we leaky in the secondary and the new d line will give all day to pass the ball

Are the Cowboys just trolling their fans?
Seems that way:
This guy brings up the Yankees, since most Cowboy fans are also frontrunner Yankee fans:
See the difference between the @Yankees and the @dallascowboys is that the Yankees actually go out and sign players if they have the resources. The Boys have the resources but don’t wanna use it because they think the core they have is good enough. 😑🙄

Here’s Wayne Dupree from the Wayne Dupree Show, whatever the hell that is:
Only a stupid organization would make a tweet like this! I can’t believe you let him go. You need help in the secondary and you have so much money in cap relief. I am growing sick of you so-called experts that haven’t won anything since the 90s

I also love this graphic, I might have to use it in the future:
