I believe that the 6500 switches are limited to 2 SPAN sessions. I am not aware of a way to get three SPAN sessions active at the same time on these switches.

Re: 6509E SPAN configuration limited to 2 sessions

This is the maximum number of source *sessions* configurable. Please note that you can configure multiple ingress direction sources per session in your code (up to 64). If you want to see egress, or ingress+egress, you can only have 1 source per session in your current code. After upgrading to 12.2(18)SXE or later, you can then have up to 128.

Here is a table describing the limitations of span sessions in the sup720 - 12.2SX code:
