sammyk: Decisions decisions, do I spend $200+ per ticket for nose bleed seats where I can barely see the jumbotron or do I watch the game on my 60" plasma with the surround sound that can make the house sound like the stadium? Do I wait in a long line to piss or walk down the hall? Overpriced half warm beer with a limited selection or my sweet holiday ale home brew that will be ready just in time? $8 hotdogs or filet mignon on the grill? Boy this is a hard choice.
Patronick313: The NFL lost me for good (when it comes to attending games) with the insert of PSLs. So let me get this straight, I have to pay you a ridiculous amount of money to have the privilege of handing you a lesser ridiculous amount of money to buy season tickets? Isn't that what a season ticket is? That I have X seats, and if I continue to renew them, I keep X seats? No? Ok, go fark yourselves.
xaks: and there should not be any such thing as a 'blackout'
Cheesehead_Dave: Also: A big plus of living in Kenosha is if the game does get blacked out, I'll just pull it from WFLD instead.
eagles95: In the meantime, Bears just resigned Smokin Jay for 7 more years
antidisestablishmentarianism: Boykin, Cobb, whatever.
JerseyTim: The Giants made the playoffs during the Jim Fassel years one year after it looked like they wouldn't. It was the "putting all my chips on the table" season. Anyway, things were not looking good earlier in the season, so a ton of season tickerholders didn't even bother applying for playoff tickets, which wound up going on sale to the general public.I wound up scoring tickets for the Giants/Eagles game that was easily the best time I've ever had a sporting event. Awesome experience.Before the game, they're playing the usual "pump up the crowd" stuff on the jumobtron. Our seats were right next to a second of Eagles fans. Basically the only Eagles fans there were all in one section, upper deck in the corner. They're showing these pump-up videos and the last one is a clip from Rocky. Rocky is running through the streets, they're playing the music. The Eagles fans are loving. They're all, "Look at this! These dumbass Giants don't even know that Rocky is a Philadelphia thing! This is great! Go Rocky! E-A-G-L-" *SMASH* A giant foot comes down and smashes Rocky as he gets to the top of the steps. The crowd EXPLODED. I mean, people went nuts like we just scored. High fives all around. The Eagles section had the wind knocked out of them. It was hilarious.Next thing you know, Ron Dixon returns opening kick 97-yards for a touchdown with the already pumped-up crowd taking it to a whole other level. Insane stuff. To this day, I'll insist that that return happened 75% because of that video./also the game where Jason Sehorn did this.
Big 900: antidisestablishmentarianism: eagles95: As a Packer fan no longer living in Green Bay I can say that there would be 0% chance I would go to this game if I still lived there.A) Below zero temps at game time while sitting on a metal bleacherB) Snow the day before so metal bleacher is snow coveredC) Every fat ass in the stadium wearing 50 layers of clothes to stay warm so you barely have your 4 inches of seat spaceD) Overpriced EVERYTHINGE) Our defense getting shredded by 49ers againSeriously NFL, why would I go when i have normal priced beer, brats, 50+in HD tv with heat in my house if I live in GB? Want a fan experience? Invite friends over and chant Go Pack Go. Better than hypothermiaI"m not a Packer fan at all but my wife and kid are and we live in Appleton. Even as a Bears fan I have considered taking advantage of the cheap tickets for Sunday's game and taking them to the game and I will sit there in my Bears gear and smile as I watch the 49ers destroy the Packers at home. Betcha wish Cobb hadn't picked up that ball off the ground now don't ya?Actually that was Boykin, Mr. Sour Grapes. And even with slim chances in the playoffs, I much prefer ending the season with a division championship and a win over a rival than having them shiat the bed like da bears/going to the game. Free tickets
mjbok: BunkyBrewman: It always amuses me when other teams play anything from Rocky when they're playing the Philadelphia Eagles.Rocky (the fights shown in the movies) had a losing record.Rocky: lossRocky II: lossRocky III: loss/winRocky IV: winRocky V: DNFRocky Balboa: lossThat's a 2-4 record.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: The only one that's sold-out is the Eagles game (so far).I'm impressed with the way they handled it this year -- my tickets for my season ticket seats for Saturday are only $20 over regular season face value AND for the first time the team is charging season ticket holders on an "as we make it" basis instead of "just give us $1,000 and if we don't make the playoffs or we flame out in the first game then billionaire owner Jeff Lurie would be HAPPY to hold onto all the money as a credit towards next season."
