    I hate this guy, but I love this guy.

    1. In the new stadium, he will have the players walking in a path through the fans to the locker rooms (that could be great fun!)

    2. Love this from the piece: "With Arlington's share capped, Jones pays for every add-on doodad out of his own pocket, 100%. And, he says, "I'm an adder-oner."

    Good for him.... and the fucking Cowboys fans. Grrrrr.

    "His own pocket?" Please. To clarify: corporate sponsors, season ticket holders, and, oh yes, his share of the NFL TV pie, will pay for the add-ons.

    SI is pathetic.

    Hate to tell you, but that revenue IS his own money.

    And if you decide to add on to your house, that will be paid for by the paycheck your company gives you, interest income and other capital gains as you benefit from your share of the bull market pie.

    In other words . . . your own money.

    For a guy seen as Crazy for buying the Cowboys for 140 million in 1989 he has done pretty well.

    He has maintained their presence as the most talked about and storied franchise in the League, rather than playing on the past ala the Green Bay packers...
