I can never afford to actually ATTEND a Superbowl,
...neither are the 1/3 (or so) of the pple who go to one....so its funny how they manage to come up with the cash, when they can barely manage to make ends meet!
I'll never be able to care about PSL's or what ever,
PSL's= when a fan has to PAY for the privilege of BUYING preferred seating that is highly marked up..!...this kinda breathes life back into P.T Barnum's famous quote!---> "there's a SUCKER born every minute"!
this last Superbowl was the MOST incompetently managed event of them all.
Easily!.........What Jones did to (fans who didn't even have seating available...and those who got locked out) rake in more money was the epitome of arrogance!...and that isn't even mentioning the $ 990 premium parking fees!
How much of all that incompetence was due to the Cowboys organization,
Probably a sizeable percentage of it....the NFL relies mainly on those organizing the event in the hosting city, and only work in a supervising role......I don't have much respect for Jones' managerial ability but he has good business sense, as he clearly knows a sucker when he sees one!
Did The Black Eyed Peas provide their OWN incompetent sound system, or was that the Stadium people too?
it isn't always easy to figure out the acoustics(in a short time) inside a large stadium that is fairly new with no data on hand for reference....its one thing to do sound checks inside an empty stadium, but that doesn't always pan out when the place is full!
All in all...they shoulda waited at least 1 or 2 more years before staging a SB in there, so they could have been better prepared!.....However, the brite side is that i don't think we'll be seeing another SB in dallas for a goooood long time!
NY/NJ SB in 2014........yeah!!!
