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.

Serious talk though, Rodgers would at least have 7 more completions if not for the drops. Meaning he would be 26-33 passing right now.

what is up w the techno car accident commercial? dial 411 PAIN!

Biggest story of this SB so far is Steelers 2 turnovers, GB none. GB has turned both Steelers turnovers into 14pts!

If Steelers comeback to win this game Ben Rothlisberger will undoubtedly be game's MVP!

3 points game, now to play real Football for both teams

And that's what a quick strike passing offense can do.

Well guys, looks like this game comes down to best qb wins! Next qb to lead his team to a score wins the Lombardi and MVP!

Uh oh

Yep, I agree

cocoajoe,

Thats what a balanced offense can do. Passing is flashy but you need to be able to run too.

These two QB's have that 'sense' that Henne is missing.

I like the way Tomlin keeps his composure, never looks lost or acts defeated, like TS.

GB needs a TD here. A field goal sets up Roethlisberger to win the game and MVP!

Rogers 5yds away from saying "Move over Brett Farve!"

Dying, no question about balanced...no argument from me. But try to tell that to Sparano. His idea of a balanced attack is to run, run some more them panic and throw the ball.

They need to go for it. 3pts sets up a game ending comeback win for Big Ben.

If the Pack lose this game, not going for it on 4th and goal can be re-examined. I mean really, what much more good does 3pts vs 6pts do for you right now anyways?

What I'm trying to say Dying is, with a real passing game, you can bring a team back quick. Some teams/some games it's better to run. Some it's better to pass. But when you're behind, running or FGs won't cut it.

cocoajoe,

Whats Sparano to do manufactor something that doesnt exist? Our #1 wr(Marshall) is a possession, not a speed threat. Our #2 wr(Hartline) cant beat single coverage vertically. Then when someone miraculously does get open deep Henne over or underthrows them.

???????????????????????????????.............

Wow! Coming down to a 4th down play.

Game

AARON RODGERS MVP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Karma, Karma: Steelers how does it feel? LOL

SAY GOODBYE TO MR. FAVRE, MR. RODGERS! FAVRE HAS BEEN EXORCISED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PACKERS DEFENSE REALLY STEPPED UP WHEN IT NEEDED TO BE GREAT THE MOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poetic justice. Farve retires the same season En his former team wins the SB. End of soap opera.

0x80,

Rodgers just placed the exclamation mark on Farve's retirement! LOL.................

Nice job on the National Anthem, Chrissy. I'm happy to hear how you took your job seriously.

Freaking unbelievable. Are we supposed to feel sorry for you now?

go packers

Armando picked Pitt - pffffttt!
Brett Favre retires with egg on his face.
All around good day.

Rodgers 24-39 304yds 3 TD's, a SB win and MVP!!! LOL.................

And the dolphins beat the WORLD CHAMPIONS in their home stadium and all the DOLPHINS fans are panicking GO CAM NEWTON!!!!

Armando, how could you pick Pitt?
You are supposed to be the expert.
We are supposed to follow you?

Wow, the 6th seeded wildcard has won 2 of the last 3 SB's! LOL...................

Congrats to pack but screw both teams. Go Phins!

The MVP were the 3 turnovers, that was the difference.

Rapistberger got raped.

2011-12 Super Bowl:

Miami Dolphins upset Defending Champs GB Packers!

Remember you heard it first here. LOL..........

DB - and we beat Pittsburgh in the AFC championship game on our way.

Damn, I havent seen Roger Staubach in a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnng time. S*hit, I didnt even know he was still living! LOL................

I knew Rodgers was MVP. No brainer! LOL.........

Didn't Armando pick the Jets over the Steelers too?

426hp, I would love to have that Camaro! LOL...............

Didn't Armando pick all our opponents over the Dolphins this year?

R&R Express,

Yes, Armando and JT did have quite the Kleenex moment over the Jets loss to Pittsburgh! LOL.............

Super Bowls are really anti-climactic. Meaningless. Even the players can't seem to be as excited as they should be. I think I just lost interest in this grunt of a game for good.

Super Bowl looked rigged to me.

LOL at DB!

The refs did thier best to win it fot steelers. But no such luck. Pitt....Favre...Suck it.

Jets seem to not have a very tough time flying. Its those crash landings that always f*ucks them up! LOL..................

Brett Favre and Ben Rapistberger would make a lovely couple.

i said it earlier ,ARRON ROGERES MY HEROOOOOOOOOO

The cutest QB in the league won. It will be nice to see more of him now. He's my type.

finfan4evajm,

Not only was that SB rigged, man's ability to breath in oxygen is also rigged. The sun doesnt really shine it vibrates and Capt Crunch does not stay crunchy in in goats milk.

Underwear arent really underwear either. We wear them "over" the scrotal and buttocks area of our bodies! LOL.................

ALoco honey can you call me now? R U busy?

GB much the better Team, no doubt about it now.

Fake R & R at 10:32PM.
Probably Armando.

ALoco, did you watch the game at work?
did you at least listen on the radio.
The United States shut down a bunch of illegal streaming sites.
