Who gets first dibs at Super Bowl tickets?

It's a question that the NFL has long wrestled with, especially as it has seen its biggest game evolve into a must-see, pop-culture phenomenon.

The league says it will disperse some 80,000 Super Bowl tickets this way:

The two participating teams -- the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks -- get 17.5 percent each.

The Jets and Giants, as host teams, get 3.1 percent each.
