Would you pay to watch the Super Bowl from these seats because 400 fans did last night. In an attempt to break the World Record, Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys oversold Super Bowl tickets to the mammoth Cowboys Stadium.The ice storm that hit Dallas last week prevented workers from completing the additional temporary seating brought in for the event. 850 fans were affected after their seats were in violation of the fire code. While fans were found replacement seats, 400 people were left no view of the field. The NFL has promised to reimbursed fans by tripling the face value of their tickets, accommodations and tickets to next year’s Super Bowl… but to some the damage has been done.
Green Bay Packers fan Odett Karam, who flew in from California said: “We don’t want that (money). We just want to get into the game. We just want to see the game.”
Even with the 850 angry fans, it was not enough to break the record. Last night’s Super Bowl attendance was103,219, just short of the 1980 Super Bowl record at the Rose Bowl of 103,985.
