Curtains

‘Vince puts up the curtains that Jerry won’t’ | Yes, blackout curtains exist at AT&T Stadium

Cowboys fans and players are all too familiar with the glare of sunlight streaming through the windows of Jerry World. A photo from WrestleMania shows curtains being used.

ARLINGTON, Texas — It’s a problem Cowboys fans know all too well: the glare of the sun shining through the windows of AT&T Stadium.

The sun serves up a few pretty iconic shots, but it can be an annoyance for players trying to drive the pitch in that direction. Perfect example: In the Wild Card round of the playoffs, receiver Cedrick Wilson simply watched Dak Prescott’s pass pass right past him because he couldn’t see the pass.

Still, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn’t give in and pulled the curtains down.

Following the playoff loss to the 49ers, Jones made his final appearance of the season on 105.3 “The Fan” [KRLD-FM] and told “K&C Masterpiece” that there would be no changes to the gameplay experience to prevent sun glare from being a factor.

“I wish all I had to worry about was a bullet hitting the screen or a little bit of sunlight getting in there,” Jones said. “Conditions and elements have been part of football since it was first spelled. No. It’s about 10,000 on my list of things to fear. And, no, we’re not going to do anything with it .”

The answer to Cowboys fan frustrations seems simple: don’t Cowboys have curtains they can put up to block out the sun?

Wrestle Mania 38 showed that yes, in fact, there may be curtains installed to block the sun from peeking into the AT&T Stadium.

“Vince puts up the curtains that Jerry won’t,” one participant wrote on Twitter.

It wasn’t yet clear whether “Vince” — meaning WWE CEO Vince McMahon — had brought his own curtains, or whether AT&T Stadium had provided them as a host.

The WFAA reached out to the Cowboys for comment on using curtains at games and events going forward, but did not immediately respond.

Either way, it was a standout weekend for wrestling fans.

WWE Authorities announced on Monday that Wrestle Mania 38 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas was the highest-attended and highest-grossing WWE event in company history.

According to WWE, 156,352 fans from every US state and 53 different countries came to Dallas to watch the event. The previous record was held by WrestleMania 32, which also took place at AT&T Stadium.
