There are confidentiality agreements that are in place and millions of dollars at stake. Just know that Texas and the PRCA , the governor, congressmen, and some bareback riders are working along with a large City group to put together the biggest 10 day rodeo in history. There is no “American, or Vegas or anything that can come close to it. Trust Texas, trust your board, trust the cowboys involved, and remember if you build it they will come! Oh and everyone of you rodeo fans wont hurt for you to pray, this one is worth praying for…hecklers be patient, your board cannot talk right now, I assure you Governor Perry, Mr Stressman and everyone involved will be smiling when all is finished.

    Why is no other outlet picking this up? How can Texas be in play when Vegas and Florida had the bids and extension to work out. Is the PRCA board just doing what ever they want to do and screwing over these places? The people who pay their dues and there are many have no voice anymore. Keep screwing people over Mr. Commissioner and you may find you have little to no due paying members. PBR pulled all your big names out another group can also

    Vegas counter offer is due tomorrow. There was never a deadline for the PRCA to decide on NFR. Vegas put a deadline on PRCA and they rejected their first offer. What’s wrong with opening it up with other cities? Get the best possible deal for the contestants and the PRCA as a whole. It’s a business! Every other major sporting event moves around, why can’t the NFR???
