An Ellison Bay man says the NFL is making good on a pledge made after a Super Bowl ticket debacle four years ago in Texas.

Pete D'Amico and his son were among the hundreds of fans who had tickets to the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but were initially turned away because temporary seating at Cowboys Stadium was deemed unsafe.

The affected fans were given the option of a monetary reimbursement or tickets to a future Super Bowl of their choice. D'Amico chose a future Super Bowl game.

The NFL has been in contact with D'Amico every year, he told WLUK-TV of Green Bay. As a Packers fan, he had high hopes for this year but now is focused on Super Bowl 50.

Not all ticketholders accepted the NFL's offer. Attorney Michael Avenatti says he's representing hundreds of fans in litigation against the NFL.
