Lawsuit Filed By Seat-Less Super Bowl Ticket-Holders -- Of Course

In lawsuit-happy America you had to know the 400 or so people who showed up at Super Bowl 45 only to find out their seats had not been constructed would not just go quietly, even after the NFL did its best to appease them.

Well, those jilted ticket-holders have now struck back at the NFL and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, filing a class action lawsuit seeking more than $5 million in damages.

The lawsuit alleges that the Cowboys put some season ticket-holders in metal folding chairs with obstructed views of the game, as well as not providing seats for about 400 people who purchased tickets to the game. Orginally, about 1,250 ticket-holders arrived at Cowboys Stadium only to find they did not have places to sit.

In reality, this is all about greed on the part of Jones and the NFL. Not satisfied with the normal capacity of Cowboys Stadium, Jones and the NFL tried to construct additional seating capacity for the Super Bowl. Of course, that didn't work out. The seats either were not ready or were not deemed safe to be occupied.

What do you think? Do Jones and the NFL deserve to be dragged through the court system here, or should these jilted fans be happy with the remedies the NFL has already offered them?
