AT&T Stadium Curtains: Use them by Wrestlemania, not Cowboys

Cowboys fans and players are very familiar with the glow of the sun peeking out the windows at Jerry World. An image from WrestleMania shows curtains being used.

ARLINGTON, Texas – This is a problem that Cowboys fans are very familiar with: the glow of the sun shining through the windows of AT&T Stadium.

The sun is shining for some very iconic photos, but it can be a nuisance for players trying to drive the field in that direction. Perfect example: In the playoff round of the playoffs, receiver Cedrick Wilson simply watched Dak Prescott’s pass pass by him because he couldn’t see the pass.

Still, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did not give in and put up curtains.

After losing in the playoffs to the 49ers, Jones made his last appearance of the season in the 105.3 “The Fan” [KRLD-FM] and told “K&C Masterpiece” that there will be no changes to the game day experience to prevent sun glare from being a factor.

“I wish the only thing I cared about was a ball hitting the screen or a little sun coming in there,” Jones said. “Conditions and elements have been part of football since it was first written. No. It’s about 10,000 on my to-do list. And, no, we’re not going to do anything about it.”

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

WrestleMania 38 showed that yes, in fact, there may be curtains to prevent the sun from peeking into AT&T Stadium.

“Vince puts up the curtains that Jerry won’t do.” an assistant wrote on Twitter.

It was not yet clear whether “Vince” – who is Vince McMahon, the CEO of WWE – brought his own curtains, or whether AT&T Stadium provided them as a host.

WFAA contacted the Cowboys to comment on the use of curtains during future games and events, but received no immediate response.

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

WWE officials announced Monday that WrestleMania 38 at D&A Stadium in Dallas was the highest-attendance and highest-grossing WWE event in the company’s history.

According to WWE, 156,352 fans from all over the United States and 53 different countries flocked to Dallas to attend the event. The previous record held WrestleMania 32, which was also held at AT&T Stadium.
