Lively Calls For Host Committee To Be Involved With Super Bowl Stadium Prep
Published February 17, 2011
ADDRESS FROM THE OWNER: Lively yesterday said Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones "was devastated" by the negative reaction to the Super Bowl in North Texas. Jones addressed the host committee, and Lively said, "It was emotional for them and him. And he said, 'You all did a tremendous job here, you could have done no more' and was sorry for the temporary seating thing. 'Guys, you have set new standards, you made a brand new day for host committees, and we will always be grateful.' They felt like they failed, and they didn't fail." In Ft. Worth, Jennifer Floyd Engel writes the "problem with the Super Bowl was bigger than just weather or seats." It was the "need to be bigger than the huge it already is." But she adds, "Nobody failed. In fact, Lively and Co. did a fantastic job" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 2/17).
