    Sunlight. Fresh air. Natural surface. Mild temperatures. The Cowboys are going back to the 'Nard.

    Training Camp Headed Back To Oxnard In 2012 - Dallascowboys.com
    The Cowboys will sign a three-year contract with the city of Oxnard, pending finalization between the Cowboys and city officials, that will keep the team practicing on the West Coast through 2014. The initial reports indicate that the Cowboys will be there for the entire camp.

    "We look forward to going back to California next year. We are also exploring avenues to have a continued Dallas Cowboys presence in San Antonio, because it has always been a special home for the Dallas Cowboys. The support of the City and the fans in San Antonio are outstanding."
