Super Bowl live blog here from Dal, er, Arlington

ARLINGTON -- Jerry Jones must be livid.

According to the NFL, there are a limited number of sections in temporary seating areas inside the stadium that have not been completed and will not be completed. I guess the late-breaking fact that the Super Bowl would be played in this stadium took the folks taking care of such things by surprise.

"We are working to resolve the matter and expect that by game time, most of the fans affected will have been accommodated in their seats or relocated to similiar or better seats," and NFL statement reads. "Those fans that are affected by this will be directed to the Party Plaza area while the matter is resolved."

Well, that's not going to happen. The newest statement from the NFL is that 850 fans were relocated to similar or better seats while 400 fans could not be relocated inside the stadium.

The NFL has promised a refund of triple the cost of the face value of the $900 tickets. Notice that its the "face value." Most fans here have paid sometimes three or four times the face value of the tickets to begin with. So I'm sure they're not too thrilled about this little issue.

I must say, this stadium remains a marvel. But it's not in San Diego or Miami or New Orleans. So it is not optimal for a Super Bowl, in my opinion.

Bottom line is Miami never had an issue with fans who had tickets to the game not being able to get in. That is unimaginable.

On the field, former Dolphin Erik Walden (ankle) is inactive today. Frank Zombo starts for Walden.

There's a live Super Bowl blog here in the comments section this evening. Join me there.

I am sitting three seats over from Packers GM Ted Thompson in the press box.

The Packers don't believe in big-timing and high-brow and celebrity. They're blue collar.

They don't believe in orange carpets either.

erik walden was let go from the fins because of a missed block on special teams;too bad he had to be the scapegoat but he's in a better place today(super bowl)even though he's inactive.

Christina Aguilera screws up the national anthem.

Oh well, they're only words. What the heck, right? SARCASM.

Armando - pick a team to win - quick!

2011-12 SB:

Miami Dolphins vs Green Bay Packers.

How do like me now Armando! LOL...........

Mando, who do you like?

Armando, you screw up words all the time on the blog! She did sing that pretty awfully though.

I'm going Pittsburgh, cocoa.

How Poed would you be if you had tickets to the SB and were told you could not watch it? lol i would go on rampage hahaha.

Bad decision for GB to defer. Needed to let Rodgers get butterfiles out of his system. I think this very important for 1st time young qb in the SB.

0x80, I screw up here and three people know it. Also, she just got paid for two minutes to sing a national anthem what I make in about five years years.

Christrina looks like she's sticky and probably smells a little.......

Yeah, me too. Eventhough GB has been playing lights out,even Pit w/o Pouncey, Steelers.

Ahh how good would it feel it that were the Dolphins down there right now? man ohh man haha. Hopefully there is some hope for us while i still live.

Mando, When do you see the Mighty Air breathers making it back to the Big Game????

I can't wait until Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas get out there. Hope they don't embarrass us.

I'm wearing all of my Dolphin gear today. I'm hoping it brings the team enough good luck to appear in and win the 2011-12 SB! LOL........

Armando, you screw up here and only two people notice it. Most here are borderline illiterate.

Cuban, I don't have a hubble telescope with me right now.

Breed, In what ultinate universe are you In??

OK, 0X80, so two people notice but they cannot correct my mistake. You get the idea. LOL.

Cuban,

Everytime we go into a season with high hopes for the Fins we usually get crushed. We seem to almost always do better when we expect the team to suck.

At least 99% of the fan base expects the Fins to suck in 2011. That may not be such a bad thing! LOL.............

That looked like a "Ted Ginn" try at the reception......

Maybe some notice but think it's nitpicking

My crystal ball is blank for 2011, but for 2012 it shows Tony Sparano as the oline coach in Dallas.

Great pass, hard catch!

Guy's have the Steelers ever lost a Super Bowl???

Hmmm..............

Many Dolphin fans say smashmouth football is outdated and sucks! LOL................

Yes Cuban, tonight!

The Steelers are trying to make GB's corner creep closer so guys like Wallace can eventually run pass them.

Good catch by Mike Wallace, When did he leave "60 Minutes"??????

yhea, i think it might be the steelers that take this one

Dying, you know what never becomes outdated?

A complete team.

Team that can pass. Team that can run. Team that plays solid defense. Give me that team.

Nobody complained about smashmouth football when it was working. However when you try to play smashmouth and only get your own mouth smashed, its a concern.

Armando GB has one of the best secondarys in all of football and one of it's top safeties. It wont be like playing against our secondary getting Wallace deep! LOL...........

Armando, you mean run past them?

Great to see you here, JorgeBanks. Been a long time. Welcome.

Cuban, mike wallace, great humor, don't care what the empress thinks!

Mando, IYHO do you think these Corporate "Big Wigs" miss the weather in So.Fla. Seeing how it's been freezing in Dallas/Arlington. Or are they to drunk to realize it?, Also is it true they bussed in a extra 500 Strippers to the area for the game???????

Mando, only just now did Drudge Report print the Aguilera story, they needed to give you credit for breaking it...just sayin

Armando I've been screaming compltet team forever. Thats what the early 70's Dolphins were. But the geniuses in here mostly scream high flying aerial attack.

They dont even listen when you ask how'd that work out for us in the Marino years. LOL..........

Cuban, I cannot tell you about the strippers. No idea.

The corporate foofs? They care about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

The NFL cares about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

If the weather affects the bottom line, it will become an issue. If not, they won't give a rat's butt.

Why complain about Aguilera singing the Nat anthem. It could have been much worse. It could have been Carl Lewis! LOL............

Lookie, lookie how A-Rod's got Cameron Diaz feeding him popcorn.

why does that make me smile?

A-Rod and Cameron huh............

The Green Bay Packers have scored first in all five of their Super Bowl appearances.

Pitt had better pick it up this drive, Rodgers heating up, it could turn into a blowout if not! LOL................

Thats what the Ravens thought...

Armando, Rodgers has shown throughout the year that once he gets into a rhythym forget about it! LOL................

Mando,

Any news on the CBA. They getting it done, or are we gonna suffer next season?

Pitt always starts off slow, don't they?

Mando, You need to Hang out with Jeff Darlington, The man Knows where are the strip clubs are in every NFL city....

The owners and players met Saturday. They say they are going to set more meetings. It was a meeting to set more meetings and make everyone understand they're trying.

But did anything get resolved?

Nope.

Im going out on a limb and predicting a GB blowout if Pitt doesnt put any points on the board this drive.

The Packers picked up Howard Green in October. He just got in Ben Roethlisberger's mug and forced a bad throw.

Armando I just blogged to you that getting Wallace deep against the Pack wouldnt be like when they played against our secondary. Also told you GB has one of the best fs's in the league. NICK COLLINS BABY!

Armando: Lucky for you, you don't have to watch the lame commercials.

Cuban, never been my style.

Nick Collins representing the great FLA. He attending colloge at Daytona Beach Bethune Cookman. Also collegiate home of our great Larry Little! LOL..........
