Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants another Super Bowl at the AT & T stadium, but he prefers to do it on his terms.
Speaking at the Senior Bowl, Jones spoke of his desire to see the event return to Arlington, Texas, by the Star-TelegramDrew Davison: "I think we are the best football venue in the United States. So, in answering your question, we really want another Super Bowl. "
Davison noted that any team hosting the Super Bowl must drop a home game over a five-year period. Jones, however, did not seem too enthusiastic to follow this directive.
"This has various degrees of consideration about how this is done, "he said.As you know, you are committed for now, but we will respond as we move forward. We certainly can not lose home games. We can not do that. No. But there are many ways to peel the cat. "
Jones has plenty of time to get along with the NFL. The league has already locked in Super Bowl sites until 2024.
Jones is widely regarded as one of the NFL the most influential owners, he could therefore have the influence necessary for the league to change its rules concerning host cities of the Super Bowl.
Jones can also use the leverage offered by AT & T Stadium because of its size and revenue potential.
The cowboys on average 91,619 fans in 2018 – most in the league – with the New York Jets (77,982 fans) have returned to second place. Taking into account the AT & T stadium sections, the venue can lodge more than 100,000 fans. The Super Bowl XLV in Arlington had a official presence from 103,219.
If the need actually feels, the NFL has a compelling reason to make a deal or two to guarantee the involvement of Jones and Cowboys.
At the very least, another Dallas Super Bowl seems inevitable considering all that Jones and the NFL would have to gain.
