The Dose: Super Bowl XLV seating trial begins
Edward Balusek / Visuals Editor
Snow and ice enclosed North Texas four years ago during Dallas-Fort Worth’s audition for the NFL’s spotlight showdown – the 2011 Super Bowl.
Not only were streets plastered with copious amounts of ice, but temperatures maintained a frigid persistence.
However, ticket-holding fans of the two teams who were trapped outside the stadium, were only phased by the seating logistics of the NFL Super Bowl personnel.
A trial between the unseated fans and the NFL began in Dallas today.
More than 1,000 of the 15,000 temporary seats were deemed unsafe before start of the game. Eventually the fans made it inside but were met with a hysterical, pandemonium-like state from the Super Bowl staff.
Fans were moved to alternative seats, some with obstructed views, while others had to stand the entire game like the poor people with party passes.
Though, if you can afford standing room only tickets at Six Flags Over Jerry during the Super Bowl then you’re at least middle class.
Although the NFL offered severance packages to the victims of Seatgate, those who did not deem the free NFL tickets to any future Super Bowl including airfare and four-night hotel stay lucrative enough, will spend at least the next month at Dallas County Courthouse.
We’ll update this story as the trial continues.
