Re: Skins fans in Dallas

Anecdotally it seems like there are about 10,000 times more Cowboys fans in the DC area than there are Redskins fans in Dallas-Fort Worth. Bunch of locals in VA, MY, DC pull for the Cowboys (I guess they hated their fathers or something...or are just bandwagon folks more likely) but I don't think that is really the case in Dallas. Hope you can find someone to go with you, though. Tickets to that game are WAY cheaper than tix for the Skins-Cowboys at FedEx on Dec. 30 (I'll be there though, Sec. 434, already getting pumped).

Re: Skins fans in Dallas

there's plenty B&G fans here. i go to a bar here in plano (Dallas suburb) and we have a fan club of about 50 and thats just one little bar. most of the crew goes to the cowdungs home game against the skins and most sit together

One reason the Cowboys are so popular is that George Marshall, 1st owner of the skins, was one of the last (if not the last) owners to integrate his team w/black players. This caused many black DC area people to hate them & root for the boys. I always thought it seemed there were relatively few black Skins fans & I grew up in Va. Kind of ironic that they root for a team called the cowboys & not the minority.

As DC is obviously a political town this could've contributed to many whites not liking the skins as well. In addition, the cowboys have always been a marketing machine. They came into the league & w/the help of the nfl promoted themselves as the alternative to all the traditional franchises.

Back to the thread - I'm going to the game on 11/18 w/my wife for our 2nd anniversary - she's a cowpoke fan. I have 2 tickets I need to sell beforehand. I plan to put them on ebay & hope to get around $300.

Re: Skins fans in Dallas

I just moved from Baltimore to Austin and was contemplating trying to get tix to the game on the 18th but have *no* idea how to "do it right" so to speak. Is Texas Stadium as crazy as FedEx in terms of traffic, parking, etc?

FreddyG -- how much do those tix usually go for?

Re: Skins fans in Dallas

I live in Austin as well. Tix for that game are fairly easy to get. Try TicketCity.com - Rugby World Cup, College Football Tickets & NFL Tickets as they are the "local" stub hub around here for Cowpuke and Horns games. I usually just stay at home and watch my NFL Sunday Ticket. Getting to Dallas from Austin or any point south is a pain in the ass up I-35.

I've only checked ebay this week & prices are getting up there, e.g. $400 for 2 tix in the upper section w/view to the side of the end zone. I saw some upper level end zone tickets going for over $400 for 2.

This will be my first time to texas stadium. I've been reading a lot on the logistics. It sounds just as messy as Fedex, but on a smaller scale as there are fewer seats. I hate most things suburban so we're staying downtown, but we'll have to find a way to the game. There's no rail or public bus on sundays to Irving, the stadium is right off the interstate.

I do recall reading that there is one exit you really need to take if you're driving to the stadium. I think Fans cautioned that a couple exits are nightmares to get in & out of.

On a positive note, people including Skins fans say that it is a great tailgate scene & the poke fans are cool.
