The Cowboys, luckily, won’t foot the entire bill. They’re partnering with the city and the schools, who will act as part owners. According to the Dallas Morning News, the city will be responsible for $60 million and the school district will owe $30 million. The Cowboys will pay for the rest.
As you can see below, there’s still some work to be done to get it looking like a $1.5 billion facility:
Here’s what the Cowboys new practice facility The Star in Frisco is looking like these days pic.
There are 31 NFL teams, and then Jerry Jones’ Cowboys, a team that operates in a completely different universe. If only their recent off-the-field accomplishments translated over to the actual football field.
During Monday evening’s Rangers/Athletics game in The Coliseum (which the A’s would win, 3-1), a young A’s fan made a very nice grab on a Rougned Odor foul ball down the left field line. The full story is much better than just a kid making a nice grab, though.
Check it out, and pay attention to the discussion by the broadcasting crew.
So earlier, that same kid missed a catch but the girl was nice enough to give him the ball anyway. The boy was fortunate enough to get another chance and made good on this one. At the urging of his father, he repaid the favor and all was right with the world. I love the look between the two dads, too.

Last summer, though, Boykin bristled about wanting to play not just in the slot, but on the outside. Just south of two months later, Chip Kelly shipped Boykin to Pittsburgh in exchange for a fifth-round pick. We praised the deal at the time, noting that Pittsburgh acquired a player with far greater talent than the cost they paid. Considering the Steelers’ needs in the defensive backfield, it seemed likely that Boykin would see heavy playing time. That did not happen. He was on the field for only 24.7 percent of the Steelers’ snaps on defense.
It’s great that Jones feels comfortable, but the reality is pretty simple: Ryan will be judged successful if the Bills win. If they don’t, he’ll be a failure. In related news: Buffalo is coming off a disappointing 8-8 season. They’ll need to improve on that in 2016 if we want to avoid the inevitable “Ryan’s on the hot seat” hot takes six months from now.
