OXNARD, Calif. The Cowboys have drawn almost 6,500 fewer fans at this point, but Jerry Jones insists he’s unconcerned.
“I’m not concerned, because I appreciate the crowds we do have,” the Cowboys owner said. “I can see that [the crowds] look down from where we have had in the past, but they have been so impressive out here, not only in numbers on any given day but the numbers of days that there are numbers out here. But no, I don’t have any issues even on quote, ‘a slow time.’ This is one of the best times I know of in the NFL in terms of attendance for practicing.”
Dallas drew 21,337 in the first six practices last season, held a week earlier, including 6,614 at their opening practice. The Cowboys have had only 14,868 fans watch their practices this season.
A Salsa Festival was held the first weekend of training camp this year.
This is the Cowboys’ ninth training camp in Oxnard.
