NFL To Bring 400 Fans to Super Bowl XLVI

In a week filled with poor weather, which turn injurious when seven people were sent to local hospitals when ice slid off the Cowboys Stadium roof on Friday, the biggest black eye the NFL took during Super Bowl Week was when fans were shut out of the big game due to problems with temporary seating.

1,250 fans were affected overall, with 850 relocated to other seats within the venue. The remaining 400 fans were left to watch the game on television, with the NFL issuing refunds worth triple the face value of each seat.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced on Monday that the league would be bringing all 400 fans shut out of last night's game will be brought to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis as the league's guests.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy announced on Twitter that "The 400 fans w/out seats last nite went on field postgame, received free merchandise, food, beverage, $2,400, free SB46 tix."
