    Re: Falling ice injures 6 people at Cowboys Stadium

    It's gonna be a lonnnggg time before the Super Bowl ever comes back to Dallas. The hype-week has been a disaster.

    For those of you who are going to watch the game and want to post about it, please post your comments about the "show" here on this thread.

    The "show" starts around 2:30 PM Eastern, so please post your before game, during game, and after game comments here so we don't have a zillion OT threads.

    Thanks and enjoy the game as much as you can.

    GO PACKERS!!!

    When is the Season MVP being announced? That's the extent of my football interest today.

    This the last NFL game for 6 month or more. I'm a football fan and I watched with glee the Colts losing to the Saints last year.

    So I will watch the game and hope that the Packers beat the Steelers.

    Sure I'm disappointed that the Patriots are not in the game, but life goes on.

    The only reasons I'm maybe watching is that it is the last football for 6 months, nothing else to do tonight and I bought a new 60" TV in December to watch the Patriots in the playoffs. :(

    Go Packiz!

    I put money on the Over, on the second half having more points than the first, and that John Kuhn will be the first player to score a TD. So, I have some solid reasons to watch the game, on top of cheering for the Packers.

    :)

    I was standing in front of a 60" @ Costco last week with an itchy finger, and if NE was playing today it would be sitting in my living room today.

    Maybe next year they will be under a grand and our team will be playing the last game fo the year.

    Gotta watch the suberbowl, come on man.

    I'm a football fan, this is the biggest football game regardless of the fact that the Pats aren't in it so I'm watching it.

    The reality of the Patriots not being in this game hurts, but I will still watch and root for the Packers to knock off the Steelers and the mediots "dynasty" talk.

    I will watch this game. Start to finish.

    I do have this empty feeling inside of me though. I know the Pats should be here. We should be biting our nails about facing Rodgers. I should be over it, and I thought I was. I guess I won't be until draft day :p

    More issues at the stadium. Jerry Jones' big dream is turning into a nightmare.

    Today really blows...............oh what coulda and shoulda been - SIGH.

    I am in beautiful Aruba (OK, things could be worse for me).

    Bet the over, I bet the pack and made the most outrageous bet of all - if either team kicks a field goal in the 1st quarter - I win - LOL.

    It just sucks - I hate the Squeelers and the Packers, squeelers more than the pack, so go pack.

    Man oh man - come on BB & Brady & Co - we gotta get back to this show.

    Pretty good vid appeared this week of a large amount of ice falling off the dome.
    YouTube - Snow, Ice Fall From Super Bowl Dome

    I would like to be a fly on the wall when Jones speaks with the architects about his stadium failing to deal with ice.

    For 1.3 billion, you really should have thought of that, guys.
    In fact, starting from scratch, anytime, this should be a
    consideration, I would think?

    Failure to complete temporary seating leaves some ticket holders out in the cold | ProFootballTalk

    “There are a limited number of sections in temporary seating areas inside the stadium that have not been fully completed,” the statement reads. “We are working to resolve the matter and expect that by game time most of the fans affected will have been accommodated in their seats or relocated to similar or better seats.

    “Those fans that are affected by this will be directed to the Party Plaza area while the matter is resolved.

    “Fans who are not accommodated with seats inside the stadium will each receive a refund of triple the cost of the face value of their ticket.

    “We regret the situation.”

    Hilarious! These comic disasters of monumental proportions could not happen to a more deserving owner. My bad, forgot about Snyder & Woody Johnson for a moment.

    I've picked out a couple of good movies to watch tonight. This will probably be the first time since the 1970's that I don't watch the Super Bowl. Try as I might, I just can't summon up any interest in this thing.

    I'll try watching the start of the game, but I could be watching a movie and doing some work before the first quarter is even over.

    I've pretty much avoided anything SB related this week as I had no interest in it at all. However, I will be watching the game hoping for a Steelers defeat. Plus I love the NFL and would watch regardless...even if hell freezes over and the Jest got to the big game.

    Okay, so this could have a happy ending?
    The roof could fall in.
    As long as nobody gets hurt, I think that would work for me.

    Dallas Fire Marshall deems some temporary seats unsafe | ProFootballTalk

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on February 6, 2011, 5:44 PM EST

    Five sections of temporary seats at Cowboys Stadium have been deemed unsafe to use on Super Bowl Sunday, according to a report from Chris Myers of FOX...

    ...Myers reported 1,000 fans would not have a seat.

    Fans furious over Super Bowl temporary seating screw-up
    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...s-over-super-bowl-temporary-seating-screw-up/

    “I just found out when I got here two minutes ago,” said Michael Noble, a Steelers season ticket holder from Eerie, Pennsylvania, who planned a special trip to Dallas when his team won the AFC Championship Game.

    Noble, who was holding a ticket with a $900 face value, wanted to be inside the stadium watching the Steelers warm up, but he’s currently stuck outside, with no guarantee that he’ll get in.

    “They’re going to make me stand in a long line for nothing,” he said.
