The Dallas Cowboys have a lot of time on their hands since they lost the last two games of the season and missed the playoffs again. And what have they decided to do with all that spare time? Why not attack cross town sports franchises in different sports.

The Cowboys responded to a tweet about spring training’s approach with a stab at the NHL. “Similarly in the category of nobody-cares…the NHL is back!”

The Dallas Stars came across the tweet and took a stab at the Dallas Cowboys in reply, and more specifically at Tony Romo.

“At least our #9 got the job done….” the Stars tweeted back, with a picture of Mike Modano, who also wore #9, hoisting the Stanley Cup Trophy.

The Dallas Cowboys have since deleted the tweet and issued an apology to the Dallas Stars using the ever so common “posted accidentally to our account” response.

“@DallasStars our sincere apologies for the inappropriate tweet posted accidentally to our account. Good luck this season,” the Cowboys tweeted.

The Stars having won this battle on twitter simply responded with “Apology accepted.”

Right after the season ended for the Cowboys at the hands of Robert Griffin III and the Redskins, Cowboys’ Jerry Jones said it was going to get really uncomfortable around Valley Ranch. Well that certainly happened sooner then some thought. And many have taken his words to mean people would lose their jobs and be replaced, well certainly the person running their social media accounts added their name to that list of people.
