If not are there any exceptions - like what if you where dating the football player before you were to try out, would it matter then?And if not then why can't you date a football player in the team you cheer for, why is it so frowned apon?Hall of Fame Cowboys seem to always be around the DCC whether it’s being escorted onto the field at halftime events or just taking photos with the ladies.I guess being a Cowboys great who no longer plays makes “fraternization” OK.
