The heir apparent to DeMarco Murray’s role as the starting running back of the Dallas Cowboys looks like it will be former Oakland Raiders first-round pick Darren McFadden, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
McFadden is expected to be the No. 1 back Sunday night when the Cowboys take the field against their NFC East rivals, the New York Giants. Of course, it’s unlikely that any of the team’s running backs will approach the NFL-leading 392 rushing attempts that Murray took in 2014, and the team will rely much more on a running-back-by-committee approach, no matter who gets the starting nod.
On Wednesday, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett spoke about the merits of using multiple running backs and said that it’s advantageous having a versatile array of backs who can stay fresh.
These are actions done to create competitive advantages. And yet, no one seems to care. The violations are forgotten. No cheater label is handed out.
So, what’s the difference?

All that creates jealousy, which creates animosity, which creates a desire to belittle a accomplishments. Saying the Patriots’ success is all the result of cheating is the classic sports fandom reaction.
That, however, is not say that the Patriots aren’t to blame. When the Browns or Falcons were accused of cheating, they admitted guilt and accepted the NFL’s punishment. Everyone moved on. The Patriots, on the other hand, take almost a defiant stand against the NFL, even when they reluctantly take the punishment.
