Two Options For Displaced Super Bowl XLV Fans

Ticketgate 2011 has reached Day 3 and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced Tuesday that there are two options for the roughly 400 fans who were without a seat for Super Bowl XLV.

1. One free ticket to next year’s Super Bowl game plus a cash payment of $2,400 (three times the face value of the Super Bowl XLV game ticket held by the individual). The ticket to next year’s Super Bowl game is transferable.

[OR]

2. One free ticket to a future Super Bowl game of the fan’s choice, including next year’s if so desired, plus round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations provided by the NFL. This offer will be personalized in the ticketholder’s name and is not transferable.

It sounds like Roger got my memo about offering airfare and hotel accommodations. But a non transferable ticket?

See you in court.
