This is really wrong and pretty ridiculous of a Dallas Cowboys MC and the mascot to do. Before the Lions and Cowboys game took place, 10-year-old Roman and his family went to Cowboys Stadium early to enjoy the pregame festivities.
Roman was selected to play in a game of musical chairs. The winner was given a copy of Madden for the PS4. Roman won, except he wasn't given the Madden game. He was given a Batman DVD. Not even the Dark Knight or the Dark Knight Rises, but the first season of the original TV show! What 10-year-old wants to watch the original Batman from the mid-60s, honestly?
The 10-year-old wasn't given Madden because the Cowboys mascot saw he was wearing a Lions jersey. They played another round of musical chairs -- and of course -- it was rigged for the other kid, who was a Cowboys fan, to win.
After his family complained to the staff, the 10-year-old was given a Led Zeppelin CD as some sort of consolation. I am actually laughing because what 10-YEAR-OLD KID is going to be happy over receiving a LED ZEPPELIN CD!?!?!? Seriously, how ridiculous is this staff?
Roman ended up not getting the Madden game, but a radio station in his hometown of Amarillo, Texas has started a fundraising campaign for Roman so he can deservedly get some PS4 games and possibly some more Lions gear. I am not a Lions fan or Cowboys fan, for that matter, but this kid deserves some toys and gear that he actually likes and not some damn Led Zeppelin CD.
