Seeking to placate upset fans who are contemplating litigation against them due to the Super Bowl snafu involving temporary seating that wasn't up to code, the NFL has increased its offer to those displaced by the debacle. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Associated Press that the NFL has e-mailed the 400 fans affected by the situation to offer them $5,000 or reimbursement for documented expenses, and are willing to pay the higher of the two figures. The league initially offered $2,400, three times the value of the ticket, as well as ticket to a future Super Bowl as well as flight and hotel expenses.
