Jerry Jones’ Greed Bit Him In The Ass

8 02 2011

The NFL is doing their best to cover up the greed of Cowboys owner and 2011 Super Bowl host Jerry Jones.  Jerry and the Cowboys added extra seating to the stadium for the biggest sporting event in the world.  The problem was the seats weren’t installed until the week of the game.  The fire Marshall then with limited time to inspect it, shot it down, leaving 400 people seat less for the Super Bowl.

Obviously the NFL knew the ink was on their faces and went above and beyond to try and “repair” the PR nightmare they had on their hands, but is it enough?  Imagine taking time off work, traveling, spending money and getting to the game to find out you can’t watch YOUR team in the Super Bowl.  I’m not sure if what they were offering would take away from the bitterness of the overall experience.

“It’s not the money. It’s the whole issue. We came here for the memories and it’s not happening,” said Wayne Rusch, a Green Bay Packers fan told CNN on Sunday.”

Obviously some people felt the same way as myself.  You can’t put a monetary value on this type of disappointment.  Sure being on field post game is nice, but stadium hot dogs and Pepsi? Come on.  They were also given $2,400, three times the face value of the $800 tickets.  But what about those fans that didn’t pay $800 and bought them from scalpers for a lot more than that?  That doesn’t even take into account, travel expenses, hotel, transport, food etc.  That $2,400 could possibly not even cover the trip.  Then tickets to the following years Super Bowl.  As a Packers you have to feel good that your team has a chance of going back next year and possibly the same for Steelers fans, but the whole point of the trip was to see YOUR team, and tickets to next years game don’t guarantee that.

First thing I would do is find Jerry Jones’ house and leave a flaming bag of poo for that old greedy assbag to put out.  Then I would begin scalping those tickets so fast it would make your head spin.  Jerry Jones and his ego are a disguisting figure in this league and his assholeness (not a word) was put on display for the entire world to see this past week.  Whatta douche.


Yahoo Sports has the story….

While I agree with you on your points about Jerry Jones, I do believe the NFL has done plenty to reimburse the displaced fans at Super Bowl XLV. The NFL gave them TWO options…three times the face value of the ticket AND free tickets to next years game which they could end up selling if they didn’t want to go OR all expenses paid trip to a future Super Bowl, which was not transferable. Honestly, I’m not sure what else you would want from the league. When you go on vacation, sometimes there is unforeseen accidents which can change what you originally planned. The NFL refunded three times the amount each guest would have paid for face value for the tickets.

I am no way excusing what happened in Dallas; it was a horrible week for the Super Bowl and Jerry & co. should never host the big game again.
