A New Jersey man is suing the National Football League, accusing them of pricing average football fans out of Super Bowl tickets for this year's game at Metlife Stadium.

Josh Finkelman says that the NFL only made 1 percent of all tickets available to the public at face value, leaving the rest at huge markups on the secondary market.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Newark on Monday, claims that the NFL is violating the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act.

The NFL, for its part, says that it's reviewing the suit, but noted that three-quarters of the big game's tickets are given to teams.

They say the teams then sell them them at face value to fans who win lotteries.
