    Up to 125 suites and 7,500 club seats, including suites and clubs at the field level, some of which will put fans closer to the sideline than in any other NFL stadium.

    I'm a little disappointed with the proposed size of the jumbo screens but at least it doesn't look like we're compensating like Jerry Jones.

    I like the fact that the concourses are littered with HD TVs so we can keep track of the game.

    That screen is there because Cowboys fans cannot keep track of what is happening in the game without a TV in front of them.

    On second thought, the stadium looks like an old Army tent or a squished down tissue box.

    No curves.

    It sorta looks like that stealth boat that was scrapped a few years ago:

    The Stealth Stadium? Perhaps ...

    By the way, it is likely not a dead project; it has just gone black.
