An open letter to Jerry Jones

Dear Mr. Jones,

It has just been announced that the Cowboys will continue their training camp routine in the Dallas area, and will have practice at Cowboys Stadium. This news was exciting because I could finally get to watch practice for myself and enjoy some football in the process. Then I heard that practices wouldn’t be open at the stadium, and if I wanted a chance to get a glimpse of practice, I would have to pay for a stadium tour. In a time when fans have been forced to endure a lockout, and the fact that prices at your new stadium have priced out the real fans for corporate types who don’t even attend the game. This would have been the perfect time to do something nice and let some people in to watch the team that normally wouldn’t be able to. But in typical greedy owner fashion, you have decided to make it impossible for the fans to catch a glimpse of the team and be at the stadium, possibly spend money in the pro shop and just make a day to do something most fans don’t get a chance to do on a daily basis. You will lock down the stadium to anyone who hasn’t paid for the daily tours that you can purchase, and even then you aren’t guaranteed to be able to watch Cowboys practice. This is a very bad and greedy move on your part Mr. Jones, and it will probably come back to haunt you in the long run. Fans are fed up with the greedy owners after the whole lock out fiasco. Please consider changing this for the sake of your hard working blue collar Cowboys die hards who can’t afford to attend a game. Even if they could afford a ticket, they can’t afford to park their car. But all you really care about is the profit margin you make, which seems to be astronomical when the cheap seats run $200, and you have to pay $150 to park anywhere decently close. So please excuse us if we don’t want to spend that only to have to buy a $10 hot dog on the inside. You are making it impossible for an average fan to attend a game, but you don’t care because [insert company here] will buy the tickets and pass them out to their employees. Hope you enjoy your corporate football experience, because it will be fake and not show the passion of the Cowboys fan to the rest of the country.

Sincerely,
Cowboys fans

  1. You are right, Kody, old Jer can turn a buck. He paid $138 million for the team in the first place and is a cool billionaire because of it. They better field a winning team this year.

  2. Love it. He is dollar wise and people stupid. It all showed the first day he was here with the way he fired Landry and then his stupid “socks and jocks” quote that follows him always. He still sees himself as a football guy and of course we haven’t even come close to the finals since the end of the ’95 season when he ran off a great coach. Maybe he has learned, but probably not as he keeps doing stupid things…like locking the fans out of practice. Well said Kody.

    • You are so right Kody. You got it correct. Hope he gets the note. Hope he leaves our new Coach alone and lets him coach.
      Well written
