Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has found himself on the end of criticism following Taylor Swift’s concert at the team’s AT&T Stadium, not that he cares.
Swift headlined an eventful entertainment weekend in Dallas which included the NCAA Women’s Final Four, as well as the championship game.
As expected, the singer put on a remarkable show. But, even more amazingly, she’s proven that there is a simple fix for the sunlight issue which has plagued the team since the venue was opened in 2009.
The artiste has more clout than the entire NFL; that much is evident after curtains were put up for her performance though the resident Cowboys have never gotten such treatment when they play afternoon games, despite the endless complaints from both fans and players.
Intruding sunlight has been the subject of grievances for a while now. Receivers have lamented over sunlight impacting their ability to make receptions and it’s even been a cause of annoyance for television viewers.
Nevertheless, Jones has refused to do anything about it.
Former Star-Telegram employee Lena Blietz made the point in a recent tweet captioned, “So jerry won’t put up curtains for the cowboys but he will for taylor swift because priorities.”
Naturally, fans are going in on the Cowboys owner.
Jerry didn’t budge after former receivers Dez Bryant and Brice Butler asked for a solution in 2017.
“I don’t see curtains at all,” he said. “We’re good at knowing where that sun is during these games. So, I don’t see that in the future. “The sun has not been a factor at all in any win or loss we’ve had in that stadium.”
“The sun was there for both teams, and so both teams have to look for it,” Jones said after a game against the Philadelphia Eagles last season in which Michael Gallup missed a potential touchdown pass due to the sun. “We’ve got a lot of (coaches), and they’ve got assistants. You don’t have a lack of people out there who can tell where the sun is.”
At least it’s not something Swift will ever have to worry about.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
