    quote Peter Normington:

    Why o why is “cowboy” a derogative term?
    I’m full of admiration for cowboys. John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Rowdy Yates, Matt dillon, Wyatt Earp, Little Joe, and the rest of the Cartwrights.
    They were all fine outstanding examples of men with good character…. the good guys…. always upholding law and order…. faught for the west, Looked after there women and families…..Men of principal.
    Fighting to the end to protect the sign over the saloon.
    Wish I was a cowboy………..

    You’ve got a point Peter – there are a lot of good Cowboys some of which you have already mentioned. However, there’s always one or two that have to spoil it and give the genre a bad name (“Cowboy” cowboys if you like). For example, The “bad” and the “Ugly” cowboys in “The good the bad and the Ugly”. It’s cowboys like this that give the good cowboys a bad name. 😕
