Super Bowl seating lawsuit names Jerry Jones, Roger Goodell

A group of angry fans have filed a federal lawsuit that names Jerry Jones and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a Super Bowl seating fiasco at Cowboys Stadium in 2011.

Those seven fans say they spent thousands of dollars traveling to Super Bowl XLV. When they arrived in Arlington, several fans did not have the correct seats and others were unable to see the game altogether. WFAA reports:

“This all happened because of ego, greed and gross incompetence” by the NFL, the plaintiff’s attorney told the jury in opening arguments, adding: “[At the] center of it all were [Cowboys owner] Jerry Jones and [NFL commissioner] Roger Goodell.”

Those filing the suit spent thousands of dollars traveling from all over the country to come to the game in Arlington. They were disappointed when they didn’t get the seats they had paid for, and — in some cases — didn’t get to see the game.

League officials say the NFL is willing to pay for the plaintiffs’ travel, lodging, food and other expenses, but nothing beyond that amount. NFL attorneys called the seating issues a “nightmare.”
