The Dallas Cowboys’ first postseason game in their new $1.1 billion stadium has no cheap seats for fans or cheap parking for cars.

The Cowboys, who host the Philadelphia Eagles in the first round of the National Football League playoffs tomorrow, are charging as much as $500 for seats along the sidelines at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, more than twice the regular-season price.

Tickets start at $35 for standing-room that doesn’t guarantee a view of the field. Before they even get into the stadium with a 60-yard-long video screen, $13 Kobe beef burgers and $9 Shiner Bock beers, fans have to fork over as much as $75 to park to see owner Jerry Jones’s Cowboys in the playoffs. — Bloomberg

Thank God for HDTV. For one playoff game you could almost buy a new tv and get Sunday NFL Ticket.

they charge those exorbitant amounts because texans are stupid enough to pay that much.

$500 for seats along the sidelines is nothing.. Especially for a playoff game. That's a good deal

not for a first round game. That is horrible. Sidelines could be 15 yard line or worse. If that is only double the normal fee for regular season, I must ask if the state had another oil boom and we all missed it? Who pays $250 face value for a regular season or a ****ing preseason game? Even the Chargers dont charge that much.

What is it with Colorodans and Texas hate?

Nowhere else in the country is there such concentrated penis envy.

Short list?
They can't drive, can't ski, can't seem to stay out of CO, and a lot of them are fat.

Texans are loud. They always make it a point to make sure everyone around them hears them so we know they are from texas YEEE HAWW!

The inbred drunks think fishing requires worms. I guess that's fine in our lakes if you don't know what you are doing but in Colorado we fish with Fly Rods and flies. That's fishing.

you are misinformed. it is NOT "penis envy" but you are close - texans, in general, ARE d|cks. of that, no one is envious.

i heard that in texas, prior to being buried, deceased texans are given an enema and buried in a shoe box.

OUCH.... Texas bashing at its best. When we lived in Colorado and were up in the high country skiing, It was easy to tell the texans from the locals on the slopes. The texans would have on $500.00+ matching ski attire and would be laying all over the runs creating a nice slalom course.... great for hockey stopping and covering with snow. :thumbs:

I'm curious as to why you chose the Chargers as an example... They have trouble selling out games, and Qualcomm has to be the biggest piece of **** stadium I've ever been to.

***Edit - Chargers, charging, get it... ***

Back in the 70's the Texans were taking over Colorado by the thousands. And they were all causing quite a stir. Now it seems the Californians have found mecca in Colorado. Hence the saying "Don't Californicate Colorado"

Ah. Okay. That makes sense.

Personally, I'm fancy myself a mutt somewhere between the Louisiana delta and the tornado alleys of Oklahoma. I have lived in Texas longer than both of the others, but I spent my formative years in OK and LA and am attached to those cultures.

Texans are extremely proud of their state. And really, fishing and skiing aside, they have alot to be proud of. Its a large state that has managed to survive the recession better than just about everyone else. It was once its own country. There is an extremely diverse grouping of wildlife and ecosystems here in Texas. There are some of the coolest state and national parks in the country in Texas. Texas is a great place.

What I have found funny about the whole "people from Colorado hate Texas" thing is that Texans never even acknowledged that such a thing exists. They could care less! Ha!
