The NFL Season Hasn't Even Started And The Dallas Cowboys Are Already Burning Their Fans.

Welcome to D-Rated, our weekly feature that tries to determine if things are looking up or down for Dallasites by arbitrarily assigning point values to current events.

A Bullet For My Valentine: Looks like there's been some progress made in the plans for that long-rumored Houston-to-Dallas bullet train. Hopefully, this means more Dallas appearances from Bun B, yeah? Plus 1.

Buffalo Exchange: A white buffalo recently born in the region died this week. Originally, the buffalo was thought to have been murdered, but it turns out it the culprit was just an infection. Sounds like a whole lot of bull to us. Minus 1.

Do The Ricky Bobby: A Dallas woman's wheelchair was stolen on her way to church. But, hey, where there's a wheel, there's a way. Minus 2.

The Backside of Dallas: A woman is suing the Dallas Cowboys because she burned her buttocks on a black marble bench outside of Cowboys Stadium. If every fan who feels as if the Cowboys have burned them sued, would the team even exists any longer? Minus 2.

Pee Wee Or Man: A 12-year-old in Mesquite has been banned from playing in the town's Pee Wee football league because, at 6-foot-1 and almost 300 pounds, he's just too big. The kid's parents complained, right until every college in the country immediately offered him a scholarship on the spot. Minus 1.

Bully For You: A Dallas company is suing reality television pioneer Mark Burnett, claiming that they weren't properly compensated for their contributions to his MTV reality show, Bully Beatdown. Hey, at least someone's suing MTV over something, right? Been a long time coming. Plus 1.

Tick, Tick, Boom: A Dallas judge sentenced a Midlothian man to seven years in prison this week after police seized a slew of guns and grenades from his home. In completely shocking news, the police also found meth in their hunt. Minus 1.

Wrong Way: A DART bus driver is in hot water after driving the wrong way on I-35E this week. In his defense, he's been playing a lot of Grand Theft Auto recently. Minus 1.

Westward, Ho: The DART Rail's Orange Line is now live in Irving. Yay, Irving. Plus 1.

Oy, Oy, Oy: Two Aussie pilots were grounded in Dallas after fighting in the cockpit of their in-air flight. Perhaps they would've been better served wrestling their nation's stereotypes? Push.

Gold Standard: Dallas wants the 2024 Olympics. The bid consists of telling the Olympic Committee that you “get used to the summer heat, promise.” Plus 3.

Top Of The Mornin': TNT's Dallas has been picked up to air on television in the United Kingdom. Now we won't be the only ones wondering why these characters live in The Beat down in the Cedars. Plus 2.

Last week's running total: Minus 5.74.
This week's count: Push.
This week's running total: Minus 5.74.
