Cowboys new stadium....

What do you think of the face that there is no Amaerican flag in the new stadium? I was shocked to hear that, they call themselves Americas team!!! I don't think so. They have a digital one up on the screen for the national anthem but it is so not the same!!!

  • Technically they can't have a flag flying on the weekends - It's against military code. And its not supposed to be up at night either.

  • Jerry Jones thought he had a good idea (no banners or flags anywhere in the stadium), and the event coordinators were left with the responsibility of providing a flag. Apparently nobody else agreed and he fixed the situation. The stadium is owned by a private corporation and I assume they can do what they want with their property. By the way, I live in Texas and hadn't heard this, I assume because it was changed not long after it was brought up.
