i am a season ticket holder at Cowboys Stadium and I enjoy watching games there as well.
i hate the losing seasons but i really dont understand the complaints about the new stadium.
if the pro shop being busy bothers you on game day, just dont go near it.
good grief you have to make a pretty good effort to even get to it on game days, especially if you have already enterered the stadium unless your seats happen to be close to it.
i have been to most games this year and have yet to even see the Victoria's Secret store so why should it bother me ?
at Texas Stadium there was a pro shop too, it was always crowded on game days as were all the outside temporary game day pro shops set up in tents outside the stadium.
i am pretty focused when i get inside so maybe i am missing what it is that bothers some of you. [View Full Quote]sure i wish the water and sodas were a little cheaper. food too, but hey its more convienient than going outside to the Walmart across the street when i get hungry or thirsty during the game.
as for the tours and stuff during the week ? doesnt bother me at all. I actually enjoy seeing the people all excited to see the place where the Boys play when I go to the pro shop or just pass by there.
winning cures everything. win some games and I am pretty sure a lot of the complaints will stop about the stadium.
Well I can only speak for myself.
I just don't like the place. I have never seen the Victoria's Secret store, couldn't even tell u where they are, never seen the 100 dollar pizzas etc...
It just doesn't feel like a football stadium to me, it doesn't feel like football is the focal point.
I do the same thing every game, get there three hours early, stand in line at gate g, get in right when they open the gates, buy a program, a soda and sit down and watch the pregame. I don't move until the game is over.
There are so many things I dislike about the place but the main one's are:
You can not freely walk around the stadium, you have to be a club member to walk around.
You can not go into the lower level and take pictures during pregame.
You can not freely walk around the outside of the stadium because you have to go in specified gates. Because of number 1.
They barely if ever show replays.
We never get out of town scores
Cell phones do not work in the place, so I can't check scores on my phone.
there are like classes of people in the stadium. It's like we are divided by income level. It's weird and it creates like a us and them within our own stadium.
Everything is extremely over priced.
There is a wine rack at the top of my section. This just annoys me, sorry.
Things I do like however.
This year they have opened the doors and roof three times which almost makes it feel like a football stadium.
Parking on random mill road Is 20 bucks and I walk up neighborhood streets which gives it a cool feel especially in the fall.
When the crowd is in to it at the new building it is very loud because of the number of people in there.
I could go on and on. I'm sorry I just do not enjoy it as much as I did Texas stadium. It has nothing to do with winning for me personally. I felt the same way in 09
