Dallas city council trying to blow Super Bowl bid

March 23, 2007 at 02:51 PM

First Mayor Laura Miller and her fellow idiots on the Dallas City Council cost Dallas the Cotton Bowl (and probably the Texas/Oklahoma game.) Now they're doing their best to ruin any attempts to bring the Super Bowl to the new Cowboys stadium and the DFW area. Despite not being interested in paying for the new stadium or the economic revival it would bring, Dallas is trying to bully their way into reaping all the benefits from the Super Bowl coming to the area.

"It'd be helpful if you could please us and please the effort at the same time. Make it clear that we want the events here," Dallas Mayor Laura Miller told bid committee members. "We'd like the main events in Dallas because we are the lead city. We don't want to jeopardize [the bid], but we want to make a point."

Said council member Steve Salazar: "We're the 800-pound gorilla. Without us, there is no bid."

They're also doing their best to make sure that Grapevine's Gaylord Texan Resort isn't even allowed to compete to host any events. Hopefully Roger Staubach and the rest of the Super Bowl bid committee can find a way to bring the game here to DFW without any help from Dallas and can send 100% of the revenue to the cities willing to support sports in the area.
