Let me go a step further in pissing AT & T off. For most of us AT & T Stadium is simply going to mean this, America’s Team & Texas Stadium. Yeah, I know the real Texas Stadium was imploded and long gone. Not for Cowboys fans. There’s no such thing as erasing what we love, and most of us loved Texas Stadium. What’s not to love about it? The Cowboys were absolutely dominant there. Something that has not been true in the new digs.
That has to change, and this year is the time to change it. It needs to begin with the fans taking ownership of the stadium. I am not Jerry Jones, and I of course don’t have the power to do this, but if I were in charge you can bet some things would be different in Cowboys Stadium. First of all, I would have Stadium Security take notes of which seats opposing fans come and sit. I’d research who bought those seats, and for season ticket holders who sell their seats to fans of other teams the prices would be higher or the tickets would go to someone who is on the waiting list.
This is sure to piss off someone who has season tickets, but so what? If you sell your tickets to a Cowboys fan I have no issue with you. If you sell them to a fan of the other team, I do. Now, I live in Arizona and this means when the Cowboys come to San Diego or Phoenix that I buy my tickets from someone who is probably a Chargers or Cardinals fan. I have no issue whatsoever with a fan of those teams taking issue with the guy or gal who sells his or her tickets to me. None, zero, zip, nada.
That is team loyalty and I am bound to respect it, regardless of who the other team is. I know I pay jacked up prices for my seats when I go to games in those places. I know it because the ticket sellers know it is America’s Team and they can get the jacked up prices. I have no issue with that. I know of people who have two sets of season tickets. They keep and use one set and sell the other sets for each individual game and with the money they make from doing that they actually end up going to games for free.
