The last time the NFL let Jerry Jones host a major NFL event at AT&T Stadium is was a disaster.
On February 6, 2011, the stadium hosted Super Bowl XLV in which the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31–25.
Hours before kickoff, over 1,200 seats were blocked off in the interest of safety; according to a police officer in the affected area, the seats hadn’t been finished in time for the fire marshal to inspect them. Approximately 800 people were given other seats inside the stadium, thus costing the NFL any chance of setting the Super Bowl attendance record (the final figure of 103,219 came 766 short of the record set in Super Bowl XIV.
On February 9, 2011, the first lawsuit was filed against the NFL and Jerry Jones. Will Jones get a chance to redeem himself?
