    Newy's Take: Don't Pay For Preseason Football
    NBC 5 Sports
    A fight breaks out between the Dallas Cowboys and St. Louis Rams during training camp practice, Aug. 18, 2015.

    90-thousand fans are expected to fill the LA Coliseum to watch the Cowboys and Rams Saturday night.  I would advise those fans to sell their tickets while they can because preseason football is not regular season football.  Fans will not get what they paid for.

     

    Neither club is going to put any proven star players on the field.  That is why I’d never pay a dime to see this first preseason game for both clubs.

     

    The only preseason game a fan should ever pay to see is the third exhibition contest. It’s the game all NFL teams will put their best players on the field for at least a half.  Otherwise, don’t pay to see a preseason games.

     

    Tony Romo and rookie Zeke Elliott will not play Saturday.  In fact, don’t look for any of the Cowboys difference makers to step on the field in Los Angeles.  Fans better buy a program because you will need it to figure out who is on the field mid-way through the first quarter of the game.
