Super Bowl ticket-holders suing over the seating fiasco at Cowboys Stadium in February say they should be compensated for lost income on top of the other expenses they incurred.

The argument was part of a court filing Tuesday in response to a motion from the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys to have the federal class action lawsuit dismissed.

Temporary seats at the stadium in suburban Arlington were deemed unsafe just hours before the game between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers. That forced about 850 fans to move to new seats and another 400 to watch the game from standing-room locations.

The NFL said it offered displaced fans the actual prices they paid for the tickets plus all documented travel, lodging and meal expenses.
