Holy Crap!


We are finally getting the first information on what season tickets will cost in the new Cowboys Stadium.

For a seat on the 5 yard line: $340 a game (obligated to buy 10 which includes two pre-season games.) But, wait, in order to have that "right" to buy those tickets, you'll have to buy a $16,000 seat option. "That payment gives you the 30-year rights to own, transfer or sell the seats."

And, get this, seat options range in price depending on how good the seat is. They range from $16,000 to (gulp) $150,000!!!!

Sheesh, how much will parking be?

Nobody is forced to pay it, at least.

The only ones who will be financially able to buy those seats will be the players.

4:55, pretty much. Until Jerry Jones looks around and sees a mostly empty stadium, this trend will continue. "We" are the real dummies. I wish the tens of thousands that will line up to pay this money would ask themselves just once, "what have the Dallas Cowboys done for me in return for all the money I've provided them." Or, at least ask "what else could I buy with this money". But it's a free country, and Jones has the absolute right to fool those people all of the time.

Anyone who pays it is an idiot. Anyone who doesn't pay it but feigns interest is an idiot. Hell I must be an idiot just for commenting. Ever wonder how a nation of so many idiots will maintain global superiority?


(Answer): It ain't gonna happen.

I will bet they could charge $200 for the worse seat in the house and it will still be packed for years. The fact is the stadium will never have empty seats at a Cowboys game and the prices will continue to go up.

They did not always sell out the seats. I remember in the 60's, if it was not a sellout, the game was not broadcast in the DFW area. It was blacked out. Family and friends would drive to Decatur from the metroplex to watch the game with us. We turned the tv antenna around to get the snowy Wichita Falls station. Once we could get a pretty clear picture, but the sound was fuzzed. Adjust the antenna to get sound, looked like a snow blizzard on the screen. We resolved by fixing picture as sharp as it would go and plugged in a radio tuned to the ballgame by the tv for the sound.

I'll be sure to tell my boss he's an idiot this morning...

Remember that Jerry Jones, like the Bush bunch, got the taxpayers of Arlington to build these athletic palaces so that they could leverage their investment and rape the ticket buyers. Selling out 85,000 seats may become difficult as the inevitable rotation from good to bad teams occurs. I suppose the business buyers of tax-deductible tickets will cough up these exorbitant rates so that we taxpayers can subsidize their excesses.
