I have no issue with that. Unless it is a Cowboys fan selling those tickets to a Washington Redskins fan. Or a fan of any other team coming that day. I do have an issue with that and nothing is going to change that. We want Dallas fans in those seats and we want them loud. So I’d be taking notes of who the profiteers are and who the real fans are if I had some authority in Cowboys Stadium.

The next thing I’d do is loud, rabid fans would get free stuff. You know how stadiums have giveaways to the earliest arriving fans? Wouldn’t happen on my watch. The fans who get the free stuff would be the loudest ones. Let some white collar, passive fan who is there in a luxury suite buy the trinket if he or she wants it. If it were up to me the Cowboys fans would have little Cowboys themed cow bells to clang when the other team’s Offense is on the field.

That is critical to me to one day see in Cowboys Stadium. The place should be as quiet as Church (and I don’t mean the Safety, I mean the religious place of reverence) when the Cowboys have the football and the ball hasn’t been snapped. I want fans to get loud at the results of a play, but as the team is ready to run the play, silence is golden. But when the other team has the football, that place needs to be the loudest stadium in the NFL. It needs to be deafening, and we shouldn’t have to tell fans why, but it seems like we ought to just in case. If they can’t hear, it gives our Defense the advantage.

The Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens each beat us in their houses in 2012. This isn’t a big surprise. Few teams go into those places and win. The fans are a big reason why. They are loud and they understand when to be loud and when to be quiet. Last year I went to the game against the Atlanta Falcons in Atlanta. Falcons fans were fantastic. They were loud at the right moments. They were quiet at the right moments. Make no mistake about it, that helps their team be hard to beat in their house.

    Good article! It did seem like the top 10 rows in the upper deck were FULL of Saint fans…..I don’t know about giving the loudest fans ‘free beer’ though….I think the loudest fans are loud because of the beer they have already purchased. Besides, Jarrah wouldn’t want to have MADD dagging him into court.
    I’ve been to one game @ Cowboy Stadium (last Decembers loss against the Saints) and I was in the upperdeck ($90 seats) The ‘pre-game’ loud head spliting constant rap music was a tad bit too much. The stadium is so big you are so far away from the action..I found myself watching the game on the scoreboard screen. Hell, I could have stayed home (Austin) and watched on TV. Whenever the Cowboys made a first down…a voice came over the PA screaming FIRRRRRST DOWWWWNNN!!! As if we needed to be told…It was senseless! This is football for those with ADD.

    I came….I saw…just not for me…..

    Why don’t they just call it – AT&T’s TEXAS STADIUM? Then everybody will be happy

    What are you, Burke? Like 10 years old? Your articles read like something out of a Highlights magazine.

    This is embarrassing. I’ll kiss your ass over this stuff on the Zone and the “Own” ~snicker~, but out here you’re not as protected so in turn, neither am I. So I just can’t do it. Jesus, man. Quit recycling this idiocy. Stop. It’s almost as gay as my fantasy role playing.
