NFL increases offer for displaced Super Bowl fans

DALLAS (AP) - The NFL is upping the ante again for the 400 fans displaced by problems with temporary seats at the Super Bowl.

Spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league e-mailed all the fans Tuesday offering either $5,000 or reimbursement for "actual documented" Super Bowl expenses, whichever figure is higher.

The latest offer is the third - and most valuable - option for fans who had tickets but no seats in Cowboys Stadium for Green Bay's 31-25 victory against Pittsburgh on Feb. 6.

The seating issue has sparked at least two lawsuits against the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys.
