TAKE YOUR CHANCES: In Denver, Jennifer Brown reports Broncos officials "refuse to say how many" of the Super Bowl tickets "allotted to the team by the NFL were offered to season-ticket holders and how many were sold to a California company selling packaged trips including airfare and hotel." Now Broncos fans are "ranting about the team's confidential lottery system." The Broncos said that the number of tickets offered to season-ticket holders was "'in accordance' with NFL guidelines." PrimeSport, which is the team's official travel partner, "would not say how many tickets it purchased from the Broncos and at what price." Brown notes the NFL allocated 17.5% of available seats "each to the Broncos and Seahawks." The league "would not disclose how many seats were involved" (DENVER POST, 1/23). Also in Denver, Dick Hilker writes of the lottery, the Broncos "don't have to divulge their business," but for an organization that "has to go to the taxpayers to pay for new stadiums, one might expect a small amount of transparency" (DENVER POST, 1/23).
