Here's a link, The Tale of Super Bowl Tickets | Sports Radio Sports Talk

not only that, but apparently you had to buy the tickets as groups of 4. Now if me and 3 other guys got together to figure out how to spend $800 for a SB party, I don't see the first, second, or last option being standing outside watching a Jumbotron.

Re: Jerry Jones Super Bowl Off To A Rough Start

The butchering of the National Anthem was appropriate for Jerry Jones' event.

Brutal...not that she didn't know the words, but the disrespectful way she "sang" it, trying to put her "style" on it. It's meant to be sang the way it was written. Don't change it up so people remember you. Also, remember the words!

I wanted to puke. I knew it would be painful to listen to when I saw who was coming out to sing, but I could not have imagined it would be THAT bad. It was down there with Rosanne Barr's attempt, no joking.


HOWEVER...great job by the NFL with the Declaration of Independence presentation (which happened to be on President Reagan's 100th birthday). Great to see Coach Gibbs and Donovan on there along with Colin Powell. We could tell that Jerry had no hand in that production, it went well.

Just horrible. The NFL should take steps to make sure BS like this and the missing extra seating doesn't happen again.

The only way to do that is NOT to allow Jerry Jones to every host another SB. There were so many debacles, hopefully that will happen.

It was Jerry's ego and last of caring about fans that caused these problems.

He was gunning for an attendance record with a facility not capable of reaching it. Fed-Ex Field is still the biggest stadium by seating capacity when you take away the "standing room only and stare at the Jerry-tron in a crowd" tickets that equally pissed fans off in the stadium debut...and sent some fans to the hospital. He thought he could get the record with a drive-in movie-style setup...and still failed. I don't even believe that those would count towards a SEATING record anyways...they're not IN the stadium!

The issues with seating being sold and not installed is just inexcusable and unforgivable. He should be banned from hosting again. The entire event was a mess. Luckily, a GREAT game took place.

I thought there would be safety issues when I saw pictures of the temporary seating being installed, but never would have guessed that Jerry Jones of all people would leave possible seats to be sold, unfinished. I expected him to cram people into aisles (fire code forgotten) and even install some trapeze swings for the handicapped to hang from so he could install more "regular" seats for those without wheelchairs.

Yes, I expect the WORST from him, and he didn't disappoint.

Re: Jerry Jones Super Bowl Off To A Rough Start

The many gaffes surrounding the construction of the Jerry Mahal and its subsequent Super Bowl make it clear that Jerry is not a detail-oriented person and his close advisors/assistants are not, either.

Given that, I am happyt that he runs the Cowboys.

Agreed, but they did make it up to most of the people who were moved. Refund 3 times the face value of the ticket and many were relocated to the field level.

Re: Jerry Jones Super Bowl Off To A Rough Start

December 19th was the last game palyed at Dallas and Jerry knew he needed those extra seats in place. I cannot believe that they could let that slide with alomost two months to prepare. What would have happened if they made the playoffs and had less time to prepare. The world was watching and Jerry laid a big fat egg. What a dumb ass.

Yeah but considering a lot of people paid at least 4x on stub hub, a 3x refund rings a little hollow.

To be fair, the NFL was in charge both of the outside event and the extra seating. I imagine Jerry had a serious hand in both since it was at his stadium, but it was the NFL's responsibility completely. (as a side, the NFLPA gets 60% of those outside tickets, while the NFL pays all the concessions, and event costs, whatever they may be.)

Hopefully the NFL notes the colossal failures and doesn't try either again...

Re: Jerry Jones Super Bowl Off To A Rough Start

NFL will invite non-seated fans to next Super Bowl as 'guests' - The Huddle: Football News from the NFL - USATODAY.com

Better hook them up with some good seats next year

Still 400 people weren't accommodated. Yes, they did get to go on the field after the game, but they still didn't get to enjoy the game as they had expected to. Plus they had to pay for their own food and drink during the game, didn't even get comped for that. Also, do they get refunded on their plane tickets, hotel rooms, etc?

Someone basically made a promise they couldn't keep when they agreed to sell extra seats that didn't exist, before even checking with the fire marshall

I'd be furious too and at this point nothing is going to fully make up for this blunder, but I wouldn't turn down good tickets to next year's SB regardless of who plays in it.

Re: Jerry Jones Super Bowl Off To A Rough Start

You know I bet these people end up making out in the long run. They may have been put out but now they are getting tickets to next years game and probably will get the VIP treatment. I'm bet the NFL ends up paying for all their cost to this SB.
