Just in case you somehow forgot that Jerry Jones is borderline retarded.


He is countersuing plaintiffs that were sold SB seats that didn't exist

Maybe not counter suing, but 200k isn't worth this kind of publicity.

Unfortunately he sits atop a gold mine...and he knows it.

You think his stupid actions have any adverse affect on ticket sales?

He isn't rich because he gives money away. He'll fight for every dollar.

He isn't giving money away, he's trying to take it to cover his meager (for him) legal expenses after he screwed fans over by selling them a $2500 piece of paper and letting them book rooms and travel even though they didnt have a seat. I'm starting to hate the NFL.

Tags had accumulated so much goodwill with the fans, and all of that is gone and then some.

He's hardly dumb. An egomaniac? Sure, but definitely not dumb.

I wouldn't think so, but over the past 5 years or so he has made some baffling decisions.

Perhaps I should just say he is a scumbag

frick Jerry Jones and his stadium

Maybe if he actually accomplished that 120k capacity goal people would have showed up with a seat. Maybe if season ticket holders weren't given all the tickets and dumping them on the secondary market it would be easier to know how many tickets you could actually sell and how many you need.

Lost in all of this is that people showed up for the Super Bowl with tickets and weren’t able to watch the game. While the plaintiffs shouldn’t be able to overreach in their efforts to be fairly compensated for the snafu, the fact remains that the premier sporting event in America suffered a complete failure on one of the most simple and linear propositions in all of business — buy a ticket for admission, gain admission



+ infinity

They bought tickets to the Super Bowl. Showed up to find out they had no seat. What were they offered in return? I truly don't know if it was a frivolous lawsuit or if they asked for way too much, but it still sounds pretty shitty of Jerry to sell tickets for seats that don't exist and then sue the people he sold the tickets to.

I thought they put these people in SRO. Did they actually turn them away from entering the stadium. I seem to recall that some accommodation was made at the time but some or all of the plaintiffs refused to be placed anywhere else. Fuzzy memories

About 400 people didn't have seats and were forced to stand

And frick the cowboys

quote:

Published November 20, 2012

Super Bowl ticketholders suing the NFL over the '11 temporary seating fiasco yesterday asked a federal court to hold the Cowboys in contempt for failing to produce sufficient documents related to the controversy. The ticketholders have subpoenaed the team. Earlier this year the court ruled the Cowboys could not be sued as part of the lawsuit, but the ticketholders contend the team was integral to the problem of the temporary seating not being ready for the '11 game at the team’s stadium. As a result, the motion contends that even as a third party not named in the lawsuit, the team should be forced to hand over documents, like communications with the city of Arlington and with temporary seat contractor, Seating Solutions. “Simply put, the Cowboys refuse to provide any responsive documents,” the motion said. The ticketholders have had a variety of discovery complaints filed with the North Texas federal court, including seeking to overcome league objections to depose NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Many of the fans whose seats were not ready or had an obstructed view for the '11 game have already settled with the NFL.

I've got family that travel in the High Society, Old Money circles in Dallas & I hear it all the time: Jerry is considered new money & is not well liked/respected because of the perception of his trailer trash background...he comes from Arkansas.
