LeBron roots for Cowboys and London Fletcher

Let's clear something up real quick. At Sunday's game, LeBron James was in attendance rooting for the Cowboys. Prior to the game, he was on the sidelines, tweeting things like, "All of this Maroon and Yellow is making me sick to the stomach!"

Following warm-ups, while most of his teammates sprinted back to the locker room, Redskins linebacker London Fletcher, a Cleveland native, came over to James and the two shared a few words and a laugh on the sideline.

"I was giving him hassle about being a Cowboys' fan. I wasn't showing any love," said Fletcher. "'How you going to be a Cowboys' fan? I gave you a Redskins' jersey last year."

So that's interesting. Assuming James kept the jersey -- a No. 59 with "FLETCHER" written across the shoulders -- he's a Cowboys' fan with burgundy and gold hanging in his closet. Apparently, in their brief discussion on the sidelines, James clarified his allegiances.

"He said he's a London Fletcher fan," Fletcher said. "He's been a Cowboys fan for a long time, so I can't fault him too much. But I still had to let him know that I wasn't too happy."

Just watched that Deangelo Hall strip. Hall made a smart play to begin the strip but Andre Carter dislodged it. Carter stayed with the play from the Cowboys backfield all the way to the perimeter. Carter's hit was what knocked the ball free.

Hall held on to the runner until he saw that help was there and then went for the strip. Textbook.

I LITERALLY ran into LeBron in the concourse Sunday night.

Everybody started crowding around and taking pictures. LeBron took his phone camera out and started recording people taking HIS picture.

Yeah, he's not an egomaniac or anything...

Cowboys and Yankee fan from Cleveland?

Class A punk.

Skins should sign LeBron at WR & throw him fades in the red zone instead of A. Armstrong

We all know that Maroon and Yellow make him sick...aren't those basically the same colors of the Cavs? He ran away from them too. Of course he's a Cowboys fan. They're always the most ego-maniacal, look at me, over-hyped buffoons on two feet and he's clearly one of them. I can tell you from where I sat (117, row 1) that he was booed unmercifulessly by the Maroon and Yellow faithful. I dislike this bama more than ever!! The epitome of punk!

Recruit LeBron as a tackling dummy for AH. Fletch could finish him off and without LeBron, Thugball will be better to watch.
