Cowboys Stadium will be used by real cowboys

bull-300x237.jpgIf the NFL doesn’t play football in 2011, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has plenty of ways to keep the North Texas Football Cathedral open for business.

Already, he has hosted concerts and college football and the NBA All-Star Game. 

Next up for Cowboys Stadium?

Actual cowboys.

According to SportsBusiness Daily, the mega-venue will host the PBR Dickies Iron Man Cowboy Invitational on Saturday.  Outgoing CEO Randy Bernard said that it will be the “largest one-day event in the history of the PBR,” and that it will be a “defining moment” in PBR history.

The floor of Cowboys Stadium will have two arenas and four bucking chutes in each corner, whatever that means.

So there are endless possibilities for the gigantic stadium, with or without 10 Cowboys games being played there in 2011.

    Maybe they’ll post more playoff wins than the current roster of Cowboys!
    Steers & Queers, Private Cowboy!

    Are Jerry Jones and Donald Trump having some kind of bet that we don’t know about?
    All the damn hyperbole with this new ‘house that Jones built’ is sounding very similar to the description of the Mar-a-Lago Club, the Apprentice, or whatever the hell his next biggest, most beautiful, thing is in the world!
    Crap!?! Do I have to pay a royalty for using the Trump name on a blog?

    I got one… “What’s the difference, there is always a bunch of cow crap on the field”
    HA!
    That stadium is paying for itself.

  4. realitypolice says: Feb 19, 2010 5:48 PM

    Every stadium in the NFL is used for things other than football in the offseason. Do we really need to read a post on PFT every time they book something there? Does Florio think that every other stadium in the NFL will sit dark in 2011 if there is no football?

  5. Chapnasty2 says: Feb 19, 2010 5:52 PM

    @ reality
    Did you see how many comments we had for some redneck woman getting a hard time for her jersey? He puts stories like this up because people like us and a handful of others are going to go back and forth about the Cowboys and Eagles for the next few hours. Not to mention my cleaver quote about cow crap being on the field and someone like Rickahh saying “finally, real cowboys”.
    It’s genius.

    Chapstick,
    Never said real Cowboys or not, just Steers and Queers!

  11. Bill In DC says: Feb 19, 2010 6:14 PM

    I’m waiting for them to flood the field and have Roman Coliseum style battles between rowed galleys. That would be cool.

  12. Flyingelvislogosucksbringbackpatpatriot says: Feb 19, 2010 6:15 PM

    Wonder how many of those dipshits at the NBA allstar gang fest actually could see what was going on. The Bleeds in NBA arenas are bad enough. Say what you like about Jones, he believes and prospers from the old adage “theres a sucker born every minute”

  13. karmathaitch says: Feb 19, 2010 6:16 PM

    Greatest post ever. I love the way you acknowledge that you know your getting your chain pulled, but you jump in with both feet anyway. I have to admire that.
    Maybe Florio should just post the word “Cowboys” and “Eagles” on alternating hours, and let hilarity ensue. That would be even more lazy than his reporting is now.

  16. Citizen Strange says: Feb 19, 2010 6:32 PM

    These so-called (an homage to Louis Farakhan) “events” that Jones lines up are more suited to an 18,0o0 seat minor league hockey arean than a 110,000 seat Cathedral Biosphere.

  17. footballrulz says: Feb 19, 2010 6:38 PM

    10 Cowboy games in 2011? You got them in the playoffs already?

    @mann1976: not near as much as shaun suisham.
    its florio saying that he can still make puns, thats all. also him renewing the stigma of jerry jones being a one man corporation. its sort of funny.
    and florios way of praying that an argument forms out of it, preferably between the certain fans of two certain organizations.

    Since that came from Vox, I am assuming it is a swipe at Eagles fans, of which I am not one.
    But I do sometimes find myself in Philly on business, and in keeping with the spirit of this ongoing philly-dallas spat, I will say that the last time I drove by the Eagles stadium and saw an event going on other than a football game, it was full of the overflow of people who couldn’t fit into the baseball stadium during the Phillies World Series Championship celebration. That was 2 years ago. Been a little longer than that since they’ve celebrated a championship of any kind in Dallas.
    Of course, if Vox is like 98% of Cowboys fans, he’s not from Dallas anyway, so never mind.

    “Bastard Florio for getting me to post again…..damn filthy scoundrel, does he not have enough money already!?! Quit w/the Eagles’ / 1-5’boys stuff already…..”
    This particular post has nothing to do with the 0-3gles.
    “Since that came from Vox, I am assuming it is a swipe at Eagles fans, of which I am not one. ”
    Actually it wasn’t, but whatever. I don’t think that people usually have home expos in open air stadiums, do they?
    “Been a little longer than that since they’ve celebrated a championship of any kind in Dallas.”
    That’s cool. I’ll take the combined six championships that the Cowboys and Stars have.
    But yeah, congrats on he first championship and ensuing celebration of any kind since Eisenhower was president, even if it was just baseball.
    “Of course, if Vox is like 98% of Cowboys fans, he’s not from Dallas anyway, so never mind.”
    The Cowboys aren’t from Dallas, either. Where is it written that you have to be from a city to root for a team from that city, anyway? Do you think that there can only be 1.5 million 0-3gles fans in the entire world?

    Really. Attendance at the NBA All Star Game was 108,713. Five college games played there so far all drew 70,000+. 38,000 watched the Longhorns and Tarheels play basketball there in December. I’m pretty sure that U2, Paul McCartney, George Strait and the Jonas Brothers all sold more than 18,000 tickets. The Iron Man Cowboy Invitational shouldn’t have any problem exceeding 18,000 attendees.

  28. PSU COWBOY says: Feb 19, 2010 8:19 PM

    Don’t you mean 13 home games? Home field and of course going to the Super Bowl! Or should I say staying at home for the Super Bowl?

    Phiily’s championships since Eisenhower was President:
    Eagles: 1960
    Flyers: 1974 & 1975 (first expansion team to win Stanley Cup)
    Phillies: 1980 & 2008
    Sixers: 1967 & 1983
    Of course this does not list the multitude of Conference and Divisional championships garnered along the way.

    Thanks for coming out Chapnasty.

    @ Vox: don’t you go slandering hair bands! To even breathe a statement such as Jonas Brothers being better than Jersey’s finest = blasphemy!
    As for “This particular post has nothing to do with the 0-3gles:”
    That hasn’t stopped you from blowing chards on posts that have nothing to do w/the 1-5’boys!
    You’ve been full of hypocrisy lately, everything okay in your mom’s basement? She still letting you out twice a day to do your laps in the backyard? Seriously, I’m concerned…..

    He is talking about 2011 season. A season in which there could be no season. And the Cowbit#es host the SB for the 2010 season. Do you even know anything about whats going on? PSU, so I assume not. There would be NO football in 2011, so why would he mean 13 home games?

    I know you’re a Texas idiot but Eisenhower WAS the president in 1960. You may not realize it with you head stuck up Jerry’s anus, but here in America, the election was in November 1960. Eisenhower was president until January 1961. Fat drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, unless you’re a Cowboy groupie!

    1.5 million over 300 venues. During last year’s PBR World Finals in Las Vegas, about 90,000 fans attended the live shows over the seven-day period.
    Bar really isn’t set that high, so they should surpass their 12k average.
    Now go back to clanking your tin cup against your stall so that your mom knows you’re out of water. You need your strength, the 1-5’boys are going to need your help putting their team together..

  67. bull rider's wife says: Feb 21, 2010 8:44 PM

    The PBR had the largest increase in profit margin of any professonal sport last year and 8 million viewers on one satellite network alone. Let’s see anyone making negative comments here ride one of the bulls. BTW, there aren’t any queers in the PBR. Real men ride bulls.
