UPDATE (7:28 p.m.):
The latest from the NFL:

NFL UPDATE ON TEMPORARY SEATS 

The 400 fans in sections 425A and 430A that were not able to be accommodated with seats were taken inside the stadium to watch the game on monitors in the North Field Club behind the Pittsburgh bench. They also had the option of viewing the game from standing room platforms in each corner of the stadium. In addition, these fans will each receive a refund of triple the cost of the face value of their ticket. The face value of these tickets is $800.

We regret the situation and apologize for the inconvenience it caused. We will conduct a full review of this matter.

 
How did the NFL relocate the approximately 850 fans who were affected?

We routinely hold back tickets in the event problems may arise. In addition, the Cowboys and the NFL returned tickets.

----------

UPDATE 4:35 p.m. EST: The NFL has said that only 400 fans will not be accommodated for Super Bowl XLV. 850 fans were moved to similar or better seats. The fans who did not get in received $2,700 each.

----------

DALLAS -- There are conflicting reports, but it’s possible that seat shortage at Cowboys Stadium is a much, MUCH bigger deal than originally indicated. FOX says less than 1,000 fans have been affected by the seat shortage. However, KXAS of Dallas-Fort Worth says 6,000 to 9,000 fans won’t have seats because the temporary sections were not approved by the fire department.

An official number will be known at some point. We’ll pass it along when it comes out.

Typical NFL! Always something!

Stupid  Bowl is usually a boring blowout! What a waste of money for 3 hours. No sport is worth more than a couple hundred bucks a seat for 2 1/2-3 hours.

Over-commercialized! Oh yeah commercials are better than the game!

Plus the Super Bowl should only be in So-Cal or Florida!!! How boring it will be in a dome in INDIANAPOLIS next year and in freezing/snowy NY in 2014.  Why??? It should alternate between San Diego, Tampa, Miami, and LA once a stadium is built!
