The NFL upped the ante again Tuesday for the 400 fans displaced by problems with temporary seats at the Super Bowl.
Spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league e-mailed the fans to offer 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 in Arlington for Green Bay's 31-25 victory against Pittsburgh on Feb. 6.
The NFL decided to extend another offer after Commissioner Roger Goodell talked to fans over the past week, McCarthy said in an e-mail.
The first offer was for $2,400 -- three times the face value of the seats -- and a ticket to next year's Super Bowl. The league soon added a second option of a ticket to any future Super Bowl, plus airfare and hotel costs.
"As you may know, we have been reaching out directly to those fans who regrettably and inexcusably were unable to watch Super Bowl XLV from a seat in Cowboys Stadium," the e-mail to fans stated. "In listening to your feedback, we have decided to offer a third option."
