Did this not happen last year or 2 years ago? Maybe that was a Dallas regular game where it was like a 30 min wait? I cant remember...

Reminds me of the Amtrak NEC (was-nyc) which worked without a hitch almost every minute of 50 years, then they replaced the power system because the old one was worn out, and now the power goes down routinely. America can no longer get even the simple things done right.complain about this incompetence and you will every time be told that your expectations are too high.

BULL ****!

Your right...That is a great point...It really is...That is going to be very bad for the NFL...

Even if it is an honest mistake, it just looks awful, and leaves bad tastes in peoples mouths...

does not matter..the nfl micro manages everything, even halftime now, anything that goes wrong is their fault.

I am a SF fan...lived five years in Monterey and am from Chicago so you know which H brother I like.Me and my boy also have a habit of taking the Coast Starlight down to SF for long weekends....love SF even as I hate most of Cali. I never agreed with Art taking the Browns out of Cleveland either.

Yeah supposedly it is like a 50/50 thing...Some do not like he did it, and others say he formed the AFL/NFL merger...

That is the right guy? Right? Art Model?

OMG! As a Rockford I'll boy, which was in my time a very conservative town near Chicago, seeing the ghost of Paul Harvey used to hawk Dodge is a treat. I was a major doubter of Fiat, but these boys really have their act together!

The 34 minute delay of game changed everything...I am sure that the braintust at the NFL IS PRAYING that the Ravens pull this out.

@hawkeye10,
That's what happens when the religion of super bowl collides with the religion of commercialism.

Published February 15, 2013
Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS – The company that supplies electricity to the Superdome and the stadium's management company have hired an outside expert to investigate the cause of the power failure during the Super Bowl earlier this month.
Entergy spokesman Michael Burns said Friday that the utility and SMG have hired Utah-based forensic engineer John Palmer to perform an independent analysis of the outage.
Entergy has said it believes the outage was caused by an electrical relay device it installed specially to prevent a power failure at the dome. But a company official said it was looking into whether the device had a design flaw or a manufacturing defect.

i note with interest that the bosses of the halftime show decided at a late date that they did not want to rely on the installed power system, and instead paid big to bring in temporary power generation. why would be good to know.
