    I dont think that pays compliment.

    I guess when you have one of the largest fan bases in professional sports and want to reward the fans, this is one way to do it.

    I've always been a Cowboys fan, and try my damndest to make it to games when they play the likes of the Browns or Bengals and even sometimes will make the venture for an Eagles game.

    That stadium makes me want to finally go to a home game. A freaking 60 yard screen above the field? Amazing

    On one of the mock scoreboards they show the Cowboys beating the Redskins 21-7. I hope Edskin doesn't see that!

    Who's rewarding who?

    To aid Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones in paying the construction costs of the new stadium, Arlington voters approved the increase of the city's sales tax by one-half cent, the hotel occupancy tax by 2 percent, and car rental tax by 5 percent. The City of Arlington will provide $325 million in funding, and Jones will cover any cost overruns.

    I wonder if 325 million will cover a third of that thing???

    I always find the hole in the roof somewhat amusing, since the weather always seems to be the same in Dallas, they might just as well finish the dome.

    Nope, because it's estimated to cost over $1 billion. Behold, the first billion-dollar football stadium!

    If I was a player, I would be thinking more about the damn thing falling on me than playing in the game.

    They are just jealous that they can't get 80,000 people to sit and watch their weekly be-headings.
