Couch looking good for fans displaced in Dallas

NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer Published:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A seat at the Super Bowl will be a lot easier to come by for many of the fans who couldn't get one last year in Dallas.

They'll be at home on the couch.

Of the roughly 3,200 fans who found themselves scrambling in last year's seating fiasco, 246 took the NFL up on its offer of a ticket for Sunday's game in Indianapolis between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants. The rest accepted a financial settlement from the NFL, plan to go to a future Super Bowl or are suing the league.

Green Bay Packers fan Mike Feldt called last year's experience a "nightmare," but says "you have to put it behind you and move on. We were compensated, and I was satisfied with that."
