    NFL.com news: NFL statement on options to be offered to fans without seats at Super Bowl XLV


    personally I'm not sure which option I would take...being able to sell the ticket on ebay or something or go to ANY Super Bowl with everything paid for.....

    Good question.
    Which one?

    I guess it would depend on which hotel and flight time with 2.

    And they should throw in some other things as well.
    How about an autographed football of the fans choice?
    A jersey?
    The NFL can afford to give away a couple more perks.
    They will more than make up for any money on any given Sunday/Mon.

    Wouldn't mind that one, that means you could maybe wait to use it at Super Bowl 60 or Super Bowl 100!

    I would go with the First one, trust me as a hotel worker, do NOT trust anything from a third party that has already screwed you. Plus with airlines think of how expensive the baggage fees and everything will be later. Take your money and run.

    I would probably go for option two. Hold that free ticket to a super bowl in my back pocket until another Packer appearance, or like others have said, a significant super bowl like #50, #75, or even #100...

    besides, if ticket costs keep rising, why not invest in a future super bowl so that instead of paying $10000 or whatever it will be for an average ticket, flights and hotel, you get that all comped by the NFL and can spend your money on merch/food/entertainment.

    That is if your still alive by SB 100 or SB 75, By SB 100 i'd be about 75. (born in 1991)

    Is there a deadline for either choice?
    If so, then #2 would be better.

    I think Super Bowl 100 @ 78 in my case would still be a great trip filled with awesome memories! lol

    I'd go Option 2. Hell if I'd want to see a SB live if the Packers weren't in it.

    Option 2 please. I feel confident that the Packers will get back at some point in my lifetime.

    Option 2 hands down. Someone said in another thread that money can't by memories. That's my reasoning behind this. I would rather have the guarantee of seeing the Packers in a SB than have 2400 extra bucks any day. Personally, I probably wouldn't be able to go next year anyways.
