The 400 fans who were forced to watch Super Bowl XLV on TV because their tickets were for temporary seating in Cowboys Stadium that never got finished will get in to Super Bowl XLVI for free.
That was revealed this morning by NFL PR guy Brian McCarthy, who’s trying to put the best spin possible on what the NFL is doing for the fans whose $800 tickets weren’t honored.
“The 400 fans w/out seats last nite went on field postgame, received free merchandise, food, beverage, $2,400, free SB46 tix,” McCarthy tweeted.
I would hope the NFL is also planning to fly the fans to Indianapolis and take care of their accommodations at next year’s Super Bowl. But I also wouldn’t be surprised if most of the 400 fans don’t want to go to next year’s Super Bowl.
