Because the whole world bends over backwards for the cryboys, I would be really shocked and angry if they land another super bowl in Dallas, he really wants to host super bowl 50 which is a real crock if the NFL gives it to him..
Listening to local sport shows on my way to work, it seems that most reporters say it was the worst run major sport event they have ever been to, outside of the seating fiasco, along with the no clue on what to do with the cold weather, it was terrible to see the field conditions with every other player slipping and falling on the the newly laid pieces of turf. So many things went wrong, and the NFL would be stupid to go back anytime soon. Stick to Miami, N.O., and traditional places.....Why hasn't the rose bowl hosted one within the last 15 years?
I still cant believe how open Moore was on third down and Miller was on 4th down, good gosh

Found this on another forum.
DALLAS (AP)—The NFL knew last week there were problems with the installation of temporary Super Bowl seating sections and hoped until hours before kickoff that they could be fixed.
“At the end, we just ran out of time,” NFL executive vice president Eric Grubman said Monday.
The league, Grubman said, “felt in the middle of the week that it was going to be a problem. We did not feel until the game day that we had an issue where … there was a distinct possibility that we wouldn’t be able to accommodate fans.”
Goodell said local organizers “did an outstanding job. It was a great event. And I’m sure that they’ll be seeking another Super Bowl, and I’m sure the ownership will look at that very seriously.”
Sounds like Jerry might get another SB, even after this disaster.

The NFL ran the show. That's on them. Not Jerry.
Just shows how much of a clown show Roger Goodell's hired hands are. They had over a month to get this done, and couldn't.

It was a mess for 400 people and tickets to next SB is NOT the compensation for this mess.
I hope these people sure Jerry Jones and the NFL.

My neighbor here at work went to the Superbowl and said it sucked. He stayed in forth worth and would ride a train and said although the train would stop various places, everything was pretty far off of the trains stops, so you would get dropped off then have to walk a decent distance. He basically said there just wasn't much to do there for it to be worth the price of the trip again.

Just heard that a group of people have hired a lawyer and are filing suit against the league.

Super Bowl L should be in Green Bay, Chicago or New York (Giants) and for any of the mamby pambys whining about the potential weather in February, too bad. The path to the Super Bowl has the potential to be played horrendous weather, the Super Bowl should be no different. A fan of the NFL and a supporter of one the teams in the Super Bowl will still pony up the cash for the ticket and sit in the elements to watch the game.
Personally, I think it would be more enjoyable and it would feel as if it is part of the season. Right now, the Super Bowl feels like a separate entity form the season because of the commercialization and sensationalization of the game. It would just be another game being played and potentially in the rain or snow, so what?

Suit filed over unfinished Super Bowl seats
Wednesday, February 09, 2011
By Bill Brink, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Eagan Avenatti, a Los Angeles-based law firm, filed a class-action lawsuit Tuesday against the Dallas Cowboys, owner Jerry Jones and the National Football League seeking damages for Super Bowl ticket holders assigned to unfinished temporary seating sections and fans whose view was obstructed.
The lawsuit seeks more than $5 million in damages.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Dallas, accuses the team of putting Cowboys season-ticket holders who bought tickets for Sunday's Super Bowl XLV between the Steelers and the Green Bay Packers in folding chairs with obstructed views of the game. It also represents the 400 ticket holders who could not use their seats because guard rails on stairways leading to the seats were not completed by game time.
The lawsuit alleges breach of contract, as well as fraud, deceit and concealment, and violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. It seeks to recover the economic loss of the ticket holders, which under the DTPA can be tripled, and punitive damages.

I would sue for mental anguish and pain & suffering too. :tt1 :tt1

I would too. That's awful. It's a once in a lifetime trip for some.
And with my luck I would have been one of the 400. I would have been in jail, no doubt. The first broker we dealt with for XL tried to screw us after we paid him.
That's part of the reason we didn't go this time. Too much hassle. I won't go to a SB unless I have tix from a reliable source way in advance.
