Jerry Jones takes responsibility for SB woes

All Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wanted was to play host to the greatest Super Bowl ever to be experienced and to have his team participate in it. Unfortunately for him, neither circumstance occurred.

Jones hasn’t had much to say since Super Bowl XLV and all of the limitations faced by the Metroplex and (surprisingly) Cowboys Stadium and the fans who wanted to be inside of it.

But on Friday, he spoke to a group of reporters, including the Dallas Morning News, in his Indianapolis hotel room, and he said he and the NFL both share responsibility for the mistakes that were made in regards to the seats that, you know, weren’t available for use (even though people paid good money for them).

“I do, along with the NFL, take responsibility for the seating issue,” Jones said. “Some of the things we would like to improve on regarding the seating issue, informing the fans that were involved, all of those areas, the NFL and I take responsibility for.

“You always like to look at areas you can be better, get better. We certainly intend to and will get much better in terms of the seating and how that is handled. I don’t have a lot of details for you, relative to specifics, but that’s part of the process of the work ahead to do it better.”

Although Jones declined to specifically discuss why the seats weren’t ready, he also said he believe the NFL will give him another shot at hosting the Super Bowl (he, of course, is 100 percent accurate about that).

“While those challenges have been focused on, I think our opportunity for a Super Bowl in the future are very outstanding, very good, because of the venue we have and because of the way the Super Bowl was supported and if you will, worked,’’ Jones said.

Jerry Jones takes responsibility for SB woes

 Jerry Jones is a money hungry texan who has an ego the size of Texas.  -

 Americas Team "The Packers" winning the superbowl masked Jerry's "Texas size" greed.

Jones should take full responsibility. Im glad he stepped up  and admitted it. But he is wrong about the super bowl being a big winner in Dallas. Seeting, unhappy fans, average footbal game, and snow collapsing on a fan from a new billion dollar stadium isn't going to change the outcome of the 2011 Super Bowl. Disaster.
