Bumped at the Superbowl

Looks like there was a bit of a kerfuffle over seating at the Superbowl (the game is on as I blog).  According to YahooNews:

Approximately 850 fans with tickets in temporary seating sections were relocated to similar or better seats. Four hundred fans who were not accommodated with seats inside the stadium will each receive a refund of $2,700 – triple the cost of the face value of their ticket.

According to the article, which is citing these angry ticket holders, "stuff blocking the seats" was the reason given for the unceremonious bump. 

Perhaps a good contracts hypo for determining damages - as one member of the crowd yelled, "what about our travel and hotel expenses?"
