NFL now set up for Tropicana Field-like ground rules for new stadium. Bad decision.” Another post on Twitter states, “This is great news for people that like seeing re-punts and game delays.” Meanwhile, in a new feature called “First Time, Long Time,” THE DAILY speaks with longtime Dallas sports personality Randy Galloway about listener reaction on local sports talk radio to the new Cowboys Stadium, and Galloway tells us, “I love this story … Jerry is totally dug in.
