The Vibe

The main thing about being a Dallas Steaks fan is to exude a constant vibe of Grill Dad Energy. This can be done in many ways, such as:

  • Making sure that everyone you interact with is having a good time
  • Always being accepting of anyone's particular taste
  • Have a really bad pun handy at any given moment

The single most important thing is that Grill Dad Energy is not gendered and anyone can exhibit this energy.

Steaks fans pride themselves on their acceptance of just about anyone, with no regard for gender, race, religion or sexual orientation, so long as they enjoy a good cookout (actual steak is optional). Meatheads are known to root for every team in ILB, including the teams they are playing against; to them, it doesn't matter who wins or loses so long as you try your hardest and had fun. After each game, Grillers will take the fans of the other team to Braum's for ice cream.

Following season 3, Cowpokes learned that fans of the Charleston Shoe Thieves had declared the Steaks their rivals. The Cowpokes aren't sure why Charleston suddenly has beef with Dallas, but the rivalry certainly seems to make Charleston fans happy, so they play along. As such, Grilldads are known to leave old pairs of shoes on the porch at night whenever the Shoe Thieves come into town. The anti-Charleston chants are not very good.

The Nicknames

Dallas Steak fans go by as many names as there are cuts of a cow:

  • Meatheads
  • Grillers
  • Cowpokes

There was initially heated debate over the official nickname for Dallas fans, but then it was realized that a good dad will call you whatever makes you happy, so long as you don't call them late for dinner. Accordingly, all nicknames are considered official.
