I guess they didn't go with my design.
I think a blind man would have brailed that one into the rejection pile.
Atleast we got the Linc now.
Jerry, is that you?
And a show of hands of who is impressed...no one.
I'm surprised that you didn't go with yawn.
That is your usual comeback.
I don't wish to demean you, life just isn't that serious, I just think you are boring and out of place.
Yet you reply to all my posts.
Because it riles you up and I think it is funny, you only come here to needle so i give it to you back tongue in cheek like.
I just saw a story about the new stadium on local news, they confirmed the Landry statue will be moved to the new stadium.
Rile me up?
Not at all.
I beg to differ, enjoy your off-season.
Yea, it starts right after our Superbowl victory.
-Party, in our honor? You shouldn't have, I might have to change my mind about you after all, such a thoughtful soul.
Fans love, hate new stadium design

ARLINGTON — A computer mouse? A Space Age football? A Bose Wave radio?
Those comparisons and more have been among the reactions of fans and experts today as final designs for the new Dallas Cowboys stadium were made public.
Roger DeFrang, a Cowboys season ticket holder from Arlington, was most pleased to see the hole in the $1 billion stadium’s retractable roof, echoing the trademark of Texas Stadium in Irving.
“So many times tradition is eliminated,” he said. “But the fact that they left the hole in the roof, that’s beyond tradition.”
DeFrang called the design fan-friendly with its numerous video screens and plaza area where patrons can gather to watch the game while standing at bar tables. Those features will offer fans a suite-like experience without the suite-level price.
Though the stadium will have 80,000 permanent seats, DeFrang said he was surprised that the venue isn’t bigger. Texas Stadium seats almost 58,000; the new stadium will be expandable to 100,000 seats for other events.
Critics called the stadium design a monstrosity and decried the projected average ticket price of $98.88 that the Cowboys have cited in financing documents. They also complained about the $325 million contribution that Arlington voters committed toward the project through various taxes.
But Bruce Deramus, Chairman of Concerned Taxpayers of Arlington, a watchdog group opposed to the stadium, said the building looks like a cross between a whaling ship and a Bose Wave radio.
“A big problem with this kind of design is it becomes dated really quick,” he said.
Deramus said team owner Jerry Jones should have been more conscious of the traditional architecture that’s already in Arlington, such as Ameriquest Field.
“With the ballpark, this is a style that Arlington has committed to, and the new stadium is not that,” he said. “But of course, this isn’t about Arlington.”
That's a misleading headline for that article. The only "fan" quoted liked the stadium. And the only person it quoted who hated the design was the chairman of the group that didn't want the stadium.
Man I wish JJ was building it here NJ.
Might ruin the "Dallas" Cowboys but it would allow me to get season tickets and actually go to all the games.
That thing looks awesome. It's a little space age, so it COULD look dated eventually, but I like the personality better than the box built in FedEx. Those screens are amazing.
Now if only we played like we deserved a new stadium
Wow...you just lost right there. And your stadium is ugly. I know the Eagles fans are idiots, but I didn't think the architects would be too. You just made a fool out of yourself by showing that ugly thing. Congrats.
I feel bad though. You must be so jealous. We're a superior franchise and we will have a stadium that you could not even dream to have. Plus, our QB has a knee that works.
...I know, it's just not fair.
But to end on a positive note: I really can't wait for this thing to be built. It's just beautiful.
