How come the Dallas Cowboys dont have home field advantage in their own stadium?

I am not a cowboys fan, but i have noticed how they never seem to have home field advantage in there own stadium…the crowd always seems to be anywhere from 30-50% fans of the away team…which i dont understand at all because you would think with the Cowboys popularity it would be very easy to fill that stadium with cowboy fans….OR does the no home field advantage have to do with the way that stadium was built? cause it always does seem pretty quiet in there..so im wonder if it may because of the structure of the stadium….what do you think?

    As a North Texan I stick with my team. Win or Lose they are my team. I just wish we could lose Jerry Jones and play like a real NFL team. It is just disappointing. But I believe in them, Go Cowboys!

    Dallas went 4-4 at home and 4-4 on the road. Their old field gave them an advantage. It had the highest crown of any NFL stadium. That made it harder for the visitors to play on. For example, years ago, Bret Favre threw a pass across the field. The receiver was literally running downhill. The ball went over him and the Dallas DB intercepted. It was all because of the slope (crown) of the field.

    The new stadium is larger, flatter and fairer, so the Cowboys have lost some of their home field advantage! The increased stadium size allows more road fans to visit. Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins and NY Giants fans travel a lot. Dallas played all of them at home this year. It won’t get better if they have to play the Packers next year. Their fans travel the best!

    Some of it has to do with the way the Cowboys play. They haven’t been very good lately.

    There are a few reasons.

    1. Cowboys tickets are expensive. This prevents a lot of the rowdy, working class fans from coming to the games. So, you often get corporate fans or people that go to the game just because it’s cool.

    2. They are an average team…hard to expect much more from them on the road or at home.

    3. A lot of out of town fans see Dallas as a destination game, so they pick that game to travel to each year.

    more than half of these fans dont have any faith in there team..only support it when they’re winning..they’re over there crying about firing Rob Ryan…who cares if the defense was injured..every little change they make, its the end of the world for them and its bad. that’s why

    Maybe it’s like Cris Collingsworth once said….People come in to Cowboy Stadium and are amazed at how big and awesome the place is. It makes players want to perform that much bigger, especially when it’s a game being nationally televised. Unfortunately, it doesn’t bring out the best in Dallas players. What’s more, the place is not equipped to keep the noise inside the stadium, the way Seattle’s stadium does. So there is not really much of an advantage for the Cowboys.-
