Feb 9th 2011 10:04PM The rediculous part is that these people are going to look for millions in "punitive damages". Mental anquish is not worth a million a piece for this....especially just for the lawyer to get half. Should they receive all of their money spent on the trip back...ABSOLUTELY!! Maybe even a little more for their "anguish", but should they receive $100,000 each?? You have got to be kidding me.
Feb 9th 2011 1:12PM Jerry had nothing to do with it. I agree that he does a lot of stupid things, but the Super Bowl is an NFL thing....not a team thing. The NFL is in charge of preparations and ensuring the tickets they sell have a seat to go with them. Jerry is not in charge of that at all. Quit placing blame just because you don't like the guy....there was nothing he could have done about it.

Feb 9th 2011 12:54PM He only had four years?? Are you kidding me?? Do you honestly think that NFL football is the only thing played in these stadiums?? Everything from concerts to high school sporting events are played in there. For all you know, they could have had a concert the night before and because of the horrible conditions in Dallas, didn't have the time or manpower available to set the seats up. I'm not saying the the stadium is not to blame, but you should be looking at who is in charge of putting the stadium together, not Jerry. The NFL oversold the tickets.....it said so in the article.....that is not Jerry's fault. I can see how these people are upset, but sueing over something like this is exactly what is wrong with our society. If they only sued for what they paid in flights etc... I wouldn't have a problem with it, but you know for damn sure they are going to try to get millions.
Sep 28th 2010 4:18PM The only reason it was 3 years was because the adoptive parents fought the father when he identified himself as the potential father within the 30 days. What I want to know is why it took 17 months to confirm that Wyrembek was the true father. In situations like these, it was the court that hurt him by allowing a potential biological father to sit for 17 months without knowing if he was actually the father or not. It the test was done promptly, this story would have ended at 60 days instead of three years. Just because the courts and the adoptive parents drug this out doesn't mean that he is any less entitled to raise his own kid.
Jun 2nd 2010 7:47PM Wow!! That was a little harsh. What is wrong with someone talking about their own marriage problems in order to provide an example of how something like this can be worked through?? Granted, it is a little bit of a plug for her own seminars, but why do you take such offense to her story?? I happen to be on the flip side of this scenario in which my wife cheated on me. I have always been faithful to her....even though my past is checkered with relationships that I wasn't the best partner. It most definitely IS possible to work through issues like this, and for someone to condemn a person for expressing a story that shows a level of forgiveness not commonly seen is beyond ludacrous. She never once claimed to be better than anyone that wasn't able to work it out, and mentions that sometimes is isn't worth it based on the situation. Comments like that make it seem like you have no compassion or forgiveness in you at all.
Apr 29th 2010 11:14AM The proble that I see is that this would be considered an illegal question in any other job interview. In his "administrative" position, Ireland would have been sued and then fired if he ever asked that type of question in an interview for a potential employee. Just because these guys make millions doesn't mean they can skirt the law on employment practices.
Apr 28th 2010 6:59PM First, illegal immigration, according to the constitution is a federal issue and this law gives cops the ability to detain anyone that provides reasonable suspicion of being illegal....in other words....if you look hispanic, you have given them reasonable suspicion. Cops will take advantage of this.
Second.....what in the world does this have to do with the article??
Apr 28th 2010 6:55PM Turning a corner too fast and getting pulled over by a cop is how you "don't succeed in the NFL"? Wow, they are cracking down!!
Apr 20th 2010 11:55AM Also keep in mind that the amount these individuals pay for insurance is rediculous. I have a docotor in the family, and at one point, half his salary was paid to insurance dut to frivolous lawsuits that our society is used to. When you couple this with the years of training and the thousands he has in debt for medical school, I'm doing as well as he is and my job isn't nearly as stressful. He will one day be worth a lot of money once he gets things paid off, but I think he deserves it for what he is going through now.
