It's a Micro World after all is a blog dedicated to discussing pretty much whatever I feel like. When I delve into scientific matters it will primarily be discussing microbiology (agricultural, bioenergy, and environmental focus). Otherwise, I'll probably ramble on about sports and life.

"We're still figuring out what our rights are, whether damages come into play or not," he told CNN. "This is more than just a breach of contract. ... This was a very traumatic experience for a lot of these people."
Really? Traumatic? Dude, tickets were going for $800 a pop, minimum. You know what's traumatic? Not having a job. Not knowing if you'll pay your heating bill or buy food this week. Wondering if they'll start foreclosure proceedings on your house this month. Not knowing where your next meal is going to come from. Those are traumatic.
Not being able to watch a football game -- even if it's the Super Bowl. Not traumatic. Yes, tickets were expensive, but it's one of those things that if you're going to the Super Bowl, chances are more than likely that you have the money to burn. Now, should you be reimbursed? Yes, you definitely should. Should you be able to claim "mental trauma"? Hell no.

Wow. I can understand being pissed off if you had a ticket and didn't get a seat.
But really, just give them season tickets for next year and I'm sure it will be all good (and a refund of course).
Didn't they give them triple the face value of the ticket? I know that pissed some people off because they bought their tix on stub hub of ebay for $3,000. Shitty situation: Yes. Traumatic? Only if you're trying to be an attention whore.
As a former Third World inhabitant, I have to say, these are the kind of things that give Americans bad reputations when we hear about them at home.
The sad thing is a lot of my compatriots generalize that if there is a self centered idiot like this, then all Americans are like that. Which is not true, but it doesn't help the international image of USA.
Agree with the refund, tripling it above and beyond and a very nice gesture..... customer service is important but trauma... seriously?
Or they could have seated them somewhere dangerous, the roof could have collapsed and then we could have legitimately called it a tragedy.
