Out With the Old

With the Cotton Bowl's inevitable departure, Dallas dies a little more

And, furthermore, no concerts. No high school games. No future.

So how's this for perverted math? Dallas wouldn't shell out $325 million for an eternity of 10-plus Cowboys home games a year but is now willing to spend $50 million in a futile effort to keep two games a season.

Sorry, there's no way Dallas can keep up with the Joneses.

Goodbye, tradition.
Goodbye, tradition.

"I'm a traditionalist who likes the thought of our game being played outdoors in the elements on real grass in a stadium full of history," says Gadd, who played five games in the Cotton Bowl as quarterback for Richardson High School and Rice University. "But it's safe to say there are others on our board and among our partners who appreciate our game being staged for higher stakes in a state-of-the-art stadium. It's something we're really wrestling with."

Hello, Happy New Year.

Goodbye, crappy old stadium.
