Jerry Jones spoke to the media today, and the best nugget to come out of it was the way he justified hosting fans at every Cowboys home game at AT&T Stadium this season:
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says AT&T Stadium has a “naturally-built airflow” that can help keep fans safe. “I’m really proud that we have that stadium to work with.” Cowboys’ first home game is Sept. 20 vs. Falcons. Jones seems intent on having at least some fans there.

Jerry Jones said AT&T Stadium, three million square feet, has naturally built airflow to keep fans safe.

The “naturally-built airflow” is obviously silly, but that’s what Jerry Jones does: He makes up his mind about what he’s going to do and then add some outlandish salesmanship about why what he decided is right.
It’ll be interesting to see how many fans the Cowboys wind up hosting at each game. About three weeks ago, the University of Texas sent season ticketholders an email that said they were planning for 50 percent capacity at home games.
