There’s trust issues surrounding the team at AT&T Stadium. It’s too easy to sell off tickets to out-of-town fans that want to get in to see their team play with a 50-percent chance of winning on the road.
There’s a massive video screen over the field that seems to make this place more like a giant living room than it does a professional football stadium.
And what was with the idea of building the stadium in an east-west direction with an open end that faces directly into the afternoon sun?
I wrote about this oddity surrounding one of the most successful franchises in modern sports history back in 2013.
At the time, AT&T Stadium was about to begin its fifth season and the reasons for the tepid results in Arlington are essentially the same.
Chances are better than not that AT&T Stadium will be better known for its prestige as a major-event destination more so than it is the home of the Dallas Cowboys.
The NFL is not about sustained success or tradition anymore – it hasn’t been for at least 20 years now.
Today’s focus is the almighty dollar, something that billionaires like Jerry Jones are always going to chase even if it means that their hobby as owners of NFL franchises takes a backseat to the moneybags.
