Future Dallas Cotton Bowl Uncertain

The future of the Dallas Cotton Bowl, where Elvis appeared in the fifties, looks uncertain. Although the City Council are ready to spend $50 million renovating the old Fair Park Stadium, the Dallas Cowboys are moving out to a new stadium in Arlington and any planned renovations may just be too late.

We are concerned about the Mid-South Coliseum here in Memphis, also. It is on the register of historic places and that may help save it. I was there today and it looks pretty good, really. A face-lift would likely do the trick. But, someone has to care..............

Just to clear up a possible misunderstanding, the Cotton Bowl has not been the home of the Dallas Cowboys since 1970. They played their first game at Texas Stadium in Irving, Texas in 1971, and that has been their home ever since - until they move to the new stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Cotton Bowl (which is on the Fair Park complex) has lost some of its lustre, but it is still a great location for college football games - especially during the Texas State Fair, which takes place in the fall. Texas (University of Texas)/ OU (Oklahoma University) weekend wouldn't be the same anywhere else. So hopefully, based on that, it will remain a fixture of Dallas, Texas & the Texas State Fair - as well as an historic Elvis site.

I have lived in Dallas all my life. The Cotton Bowl has seen its days of glory. Throwing $50 million at it for updates is a joke and a total waste of money. The Cowboys new stadium in Arlington is going to be something very special, a one of a kind stadium. The City of Dallas could have had the Cowboys build their new stadium in Dallas, but like the do so many times, the dropped the ball and Jerry Jones took his venture to Arlington.
