Fans Who Lost Super Bowl Seats Get Second Option

NEW YORK (AP) – The NFL has added a second option for the roughly 400 fans who had to give up their seats at the Super Bowl: They can choose to attend any future Super Bowl instead of being limited to the 2012 game.

The league initially said Sunday it would give $2,400, three times the face value of the ticket, to the fans who were forced to watch the game on monitors or use standing-room platforms after some temporary seating sections were not completed in time.

On Monday, Commissioner Roger Goodell said those fans would also receive tickets to next year’s Super Bowl.

Then on Tuesday, the NFL announced the fans could choose instead to receive a ticket to any future Super Bowl, along with round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations. If fans choose that option, they will not get the $2,400.

    Wonder if Jerry Jones will step up and help pay? It is not the NFL’s fault its Jerry Jones damned ego!

    1. Jerry gets a pass says:

      Actually Sonja, it is the NFL’s fault. They basicly took over the stadium about a month before the game. They removed the signs that said Cowboys Lot # 10 to NFL Lot # 10. The NFL is the one who hired the company from New York to build the extra seats. I will nail Jerry when it is his doing, but this is all on the NFL and they have admitted it more than once.
