Less than an hour after advancing to the Super Bowl, the New York Giants started delivering the bad news to many of their non-club season ticket holders.

While the Giants were going to Indianapolis to face the New England Patriots on Feb. 5, most of the non-club season tickets holders weren't.

The Giants sent out emails roughly 50 minutes after their 20-17 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers announcing the results of a random computer selection that was based on seniority. Most emails included the word "unfortunately."

As a participant, the Giants receive 17.5 percent of the tickets to the game at Lucas Oil Stadium. Players, coaches and team officials get a chunk of that total.

Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon didn't know how many tickets were reserved for fans.
