It wasn't just Indianapolis getting good reviews as a Super Bowl city. People generally looked favorably on Lucas Oil Stadium (like Cowboys Stadium, it was also designed by Dallas-based HKS).
The Indianapolis Business Journal quoted a guy
who probably knows something about NFL stadiums.
"Lucas Oil is the best stadium ever," Madden NFL Creative Director Michael Young raved in a post on Twitter. "Less than a minute wait for bathroom and food all night."
One common theme that popped up in the coverage was an occasional rehashing of the attendance myth from last year's Super Bowl in Arlington. There's a perception that the stadium was packed with an absurd number of fans that went far beyond its capacity. The standard storyline was that Jerry Jones and the NFL packed more than 103,000 people in a stadium built only for about 80,000 or so.
However, that Super Bowl XLV attendance figure of 103,219 is misleading. That was the total attendance, which included fans, NFL employees, broadcasters, etc. And that number was cited recently by the Associated Press, USA Today, Indianapolis Star and others.
