    Yep, when I had a stopover in Dallas earlier this year, my son and I made sure we went to the DFW proshop and spent a fair chunk of coin. It is the way the world is made.

    Personally think the Original Poster had one of the best posts I have seen on this forum. He basically nails it.

    Sad but very true.

    No offense but I hat the season ticket holders here who keep selling there tickets to opposing fans to make money.

    Nothing irritates me more, I will never understand why you bought them in the first place.

    Brother, I am with you. If RGIII had landed anywhere else (barring Philly and NYC), I might have already moved my fandom. But I simply can't see myself ever rooting for any Redskin player, no matter how much I liked him as a college player.

    Pray tell, why does it matter. You purchase a ticket to an event to be entertained. The Cowboys quite simply are not entertaining, unless your perspective going in is to see a black comedy, as someone else mentioned on this thread.

    A couple of reasons.

    First it sucks being in the stadium with a bunch of opposing teams fans. Duh.

    Second it makes is all look bad. It creates a bad environment.

    Haha, he's full of crap. Last year, I told the team that I was done, and had no interest in being a season ticket holder. They gave me a free upgrade in seats, just to stay on. They've been saying that they are 98% sold out since that stupid stadium opened.

    Quite simply, the shine on this jalopy is long gone, and the loyalty of the fan base is getting older and grayer. There's no buzz whatsoever among the younger crowd, who simply don't care and don't get what all the fuss is about.

    Jerry's life legacy will be the hillbilly that took down America's Team. Write it on his friggin gravestone.

    What a failure of a once-lucky man he really is.

    None taken but I'm not selling my tickets to make money but the opportunity is there so why not take advantage of it. I'll use it again next May and maybe things will have changed.

    To tell you the truth I don't know if opposing fans are buying my tickets. It could be die-hard Cowboys fans wanting to go see the Cowboys in a great section but I doubt they would be spending that much money for the product Jerry Jones is putting on the field.

    I don't know about you but I don't want to feel I like I throw my money away. Pretty simple to me. I love the Cowboys but after these last 16 years I want a better return on my investment for entertainment. I can get just as frustrated at home as being at the game.

    I figured as much. He told me I was going to continue to keep overpaying, but the way I see it by the time you factor the PSL in the payments (if I'm getting season tickets i want 200 or 300 level), the price evens out. I suck at math though. :D

    Geez you guys, this whole conversation reminds of a timeshare spiel, is that what it's come too? I was under the misunderstanding that season tickets were still at a premium and they were tough to get.

    On a side note, I was fortunate enough to watch the Cleveland game from a suite on the 45 yard line and next to us was Amoco suite and there was not a soul in it the entire game.

    AT&T was on the other side and it was packed, in fact I was yelling and screaming the whole second half with their CEO (great guy). But the Amoco thing really bothered me. If you're not going to use it give the tickets away to some people who would appreciate it or to some charity. To let it go empty is a shame.

    My brother sold suites when the stadium first was selling them. He worked with Boys for 5 years. Near end he was selling event and other seat packages. They are pushed hard to sell, sell, sell. It started as top line professionals selling the suites and then he got tired of it when they started using young salesmen just to push cold calls.

    I understand what you are saying. I do. But, personally, I don't think any self-respecting Cowboys fan should be there in the first place. As I said in another thread, purchasing tickets to games, merchandise or even participating in the tour is the equivalent of telling Jerry Jones the GM he is doing a good job.
