Tony Romo calls Dallas Cowboys crowd ‘exceptional’ in win over New York Giants


The Dallas Cowboys fans have been criticized for their lack of fandom. A lot of the blame for that comes from the new AT&T Stadium and the jacked up seat prices that has made the crowd more “corporate” and less fanatic. The fans who cheer and help build the home field advantage for a team have been priced out essentially.

Because of that the Dallas Cowboys aren’t considered to have a great home field advantage and away teams at times have been fairly well represented in the crowd and out cheering Cowboys fans.

According to Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, that wasn’t the case last night.

“One more thing,” Romo said. “I just want to say, that was as good as I’ve seen our home stadium. The crowd was exceptional. They were outstanding from the moment it started to the end of the football game. If they continue to do that, it’s going to be a tough place to play. I was just really excited about the way that they brought the energy and the noise level there was throughout that football game. It was awesome to see.”

Running back DeMarco Murray agreed.

“I’ve been here for three years,” Murray said, “and I’ve never been around a louder environment than that.”
