Default Why Was Cowboys Stadium Exempt From Blackouts?

Why Was Cowboys Stadium Exempt From Blackouts?

As brief power outages rolled across the state on Wednesday, certain places were intended to be exempt from a temporary loss of electricity. That included hospitals, nursing homes, fire stations, police stations, other emergency response facilities… and Cowboys Stadium?

When officials with Oncor said that the Arlington site of Sunday’s Super Bowl XLV would not be a part of the rolling outages, many residents became furious. But this was not entirely a choice made by the local utility company.

With thousands of reporters huddled in North Texas hotels and thousands of rabid football fans attending the NFL Experience at the Dallas Convention Center, and two football teams preparing to do battle on the field of Cowboys Stadium this Sunday, the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee had a big request to make. “It is vitally important we don’t have blackouts,” said committee vice president Tony Fay.

Fay asked the City of Dallas, the City of Fort Worth and the City of Arlington to ensure that rolling blackouts did not prevent planned events from happening at Super Bowl venues. That news really steamed up some homeowners who were left without power for hours. “We’re not prioritizing,” said frustrated Plano resident Allen Hooser. “Hospitals and the grocery store, which is out. But for a PR stunt, where you can go throw a football, you have power and heat.”

Full story
Read the comments for full effect.. The proletariat is disenfranchised. It does beg the question why the stadium doesn't use (or have?) backup power generators in times like this.

Pretty understandable why the Cowboys Stadium didn't have to deal with blackouts.

To be honest, I wasn't surprised that it was granted continuous power for a lot of reasons.

I just found the story interesting as a football fan and I can also understand why many local residents are not too happy about it. Seeing power for a 60 yard wide tv over basic heat for residents during a blizzard does seem like misplaced priorities.

I still don't get why the stadium doesn't have it's own backup power source, especially considering the price tag for that thing.

Seems kind of logical to me. The expense would be huge and let's face it, it is a non-essential facility that only gets used a few times a year (unless you made it part of a plan for some sort of emergency contingency). Heck that might be a reason they didn't put generators in - so it doesn't get used and abused in an emergency.

Some PR stunt? If that's how they want to look at it so be it but there is no telling how many millions and millions of dollars this week and little PR stunt is bringing to the city of Dallas.

Completely understandable to me not to shut the power off to the stadium. Not using the giant jumbotron until the actual superbowl I can understand but getting worked up over keeping the power on at the stadium doesn't make too much sense to me.

It sucks peoples power is out at their home, I do feel bad for them. But if this happened at Reliant and we were having the Super Bowl, then it wouldn't bother me... even if my power was out. Probably a bunch of people who don't like organized sports or the traffic anyways. The City is receiving so much income from this though, just put up and shut up.

I remember when Reliant lost power, *cough FILO cough*!



They had to finish the game under back-up generators/power.



I just feel fortunate here at my office, that we are on the same grid as the Firehouse nearby.

.....or anywhere with money. I live near river oaks....never even a blip on the power. Was in the heart of the woodlands too, they didn't even know WHY there were statewide rolling power breaks. I know this is hard to swallow for some folks but that makes it no less true, people with money are taken care of first. Same for when IKE blew through, my power (and all the rich anuses living around me) was on the next day. Took two weeks to get it back on around Airline (where I work) is.

The two most cited reasons here are

1) Homeland security issues.
2) That the power surge of repowering would use more energy than it saved (btw, I heard this is true in other high usage areas).

FWIW, this stadium is used at least twice as much as Reliant. Jerry is keeping that place busy. Anyway from what I understand, the backup generation is just to keep normally essential items on versus everything.

Just to Note: I stay about 5 to 6 miles from the Stadium and did not get a rolling balckout on yesterday. Obviously, today is still in limbo.

Or maybe the freezes weren't as bad in Houston? I live in DFW, and the really rich neighborhoods in the areas I live near got their power cut off like everyone else. Maybe the people in The Woodlands were using less power or something?

Yeah, Bob McNair needs to work on getting more events hosted in Houston. He does a poor job there also.

Considering most major artists won't play Toyota Center because of deals with Ticketmaster, you would think Reliant would make a play

When you think about how much money this game is going to bring in for the city during these times you'll know why the lights were not turned off.

It's hardly bringing in anything to Arlington. The City of Arlington foot the bill for the stadium, while Dallas gets all the publicity for having the stadium, even though it isn't even in Dallas. The Arlington Mayor is actually mad about it. He and the city leaders thought the stadium would bring in a lot of investment into Arlington. Instead, nothing has changed, except a few businesses closed when they were building the stadium and reconstructing I-30 near the stadium.

Dallas gets the pub because it is well known which is unlucky.
