Many opposing players have come away from their first experience at Cowboys Stadium in awe of the luxury and sheer size of the venue, and vocal about what a nice place it is to play. Giants’ defensive end Justin Tuck is not one of those players.
Tuck recently called Cowboys Stadium “crappy,” a comment that led DeMarcu Ware to suggest that Tuck was only bitter that he wasn’t a Cowboy and therefore didn’t get to play at JerryWorld eight times a year.
Now, Jerry Jones, the proud papa of the $1.2 billion behemoth, is weighing in as well, via his bi-weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan.
"When it comes to architecture, when it comes to anything, we all have our perspective and our opinions on it," Jones said Friday, via ESPN Dallas. "But we're proud of it. [The Giants] play in a heck of a stadium, and it's a beautiful stadium up there in the Meadowlands.
“But we are proud of ours. We want to really continue as we're doing this year, is to establish a home field advantage and let's see what we can do. At the end of the day, what counts [is] we want to come out here on the positive end of that score."
Other reports have Tuck calling Cowboys Stadium “a dump.”
"Hopefully that's the competitive spirit in him,” Jones responded. “I would tell him this, he's never been in more of a expensive dump in his life."
Well played, Mr. Jones. Well played.
