TBird Posted March 5, 2016 Share Posted March 5, 2016 Jerry Jones, the flamboyant owner of the Cowboys is expanding his headquarters and training facilityby adding a small stadium of about 12,000 seats for fans to watch the practices, a little strip mallof shops for um, shopping and a hotel to house the players during training camp. This will definitely be a one of the kind deal and others will copy it. The Rams are definitely interestedfor their new home in LA. He's even charging $4500 for PSLsin the stadium to watch the practicesplus charging $350 pr mo. It's quite impressive. I haven't been out to OM but from what I heard there's not enough room for all this. It was the coolesttraining facility when built and some FAs like Trevor Pryce signed here after he saw the pics on theinternet. LOL - Indy by contrast has just a warehouse of executive offices and a field behind it. It's brandnew and colorful and nice on the inside but very small. The Jets paid $75M for theirs about 5 years ago and it had a stadium for its fans to watch thepractices on 4.5 fields. Damn - I used to go to every practice at Westminister and we started off with 10,000 people prday. By the time they moved it there were over 25,000. The fri night inter squad game was on theupper field then moved to the small stadium with so many people. Then Ravens stopped goingthere during the lockout and liked staying at home and kept it that way. Click on link and scroll down for pic. BTW, the woman on the right talking to Ford who paid forthe name of the practice stadium is Jones daughter. She will run the team when Jones dies.She's the most powerful woman in NFL and chairs one of their most important commitees and isa consultant to the Salvation Army or was. Jones oil company owns the ground that the facility is on. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/14878969/how-jerry-jones-dallas-cowboys-changing-game-new-training-facility Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
