The New Cowboys stadium is gonna be The Premier stadium in the NFL for a loooong time. Just look at that design. The 2010 NBA all-star game is going to be played there. They need to build an upscale neighborhood or something around it. Does the DART light rail go all the way out there to the stadium? I wish the dolphins would kick the Marlins out so they can get there own stadium.

^ No, Arlington opted out of the DART regional LRT expansion.

Quite an amazing facility. The tour costs $18.

The Dallas stadium looks sick but IMO football should never, under any circumstances, be played under a roof. Even an open roof isn't the same as an open air stadium. But then again the building looks sick from the outside...

I agree. But at least it's retractable. But I do understand what you're saying.

Those fools. Why did they opt out? That would be a prime ride on DART. And it would be ALOT easier to avoid traffic.

Yeah, just tell that to millions of Texans during August and September when it's still reaching up to the 90's and 80's sitting in the sun for a game.....




BTW, it would have made alot of sense for Fort Worth and The T to work out something since we are RIGHT NEXT to Arlington. Seriously, we share a border and we can't even work out a bus deal with them...... we're WAAAAAY behind....

the only thing I don't like about Cowboys' new stadium is how it's not IN Dallas but rather the dry old suburb. The experience and setting would be so much greater if it was actually in the city.

I'm still pissed that the Meadowlands didn't put a retractable roof over the stadium. What a waste. We could have had a facility that could host the Super Bowl and a major college bowl game, not to mention we could have had a up-to-date facility. I'm sure they're gonna dump money into trying to add a roof one day and it will be the ghetto stadium. We didn't need a newer version of Giants stadium - the Meadowlands stadium is just a rash decision, as are so many decisions about the Meadowlands in general.

The only good thing about the new stadium is going to be the team that is playing there, the one who defeated the overrated 18-0 Patsies and made them 18-1 in a heroic victory in Super Bowl XLII...
