TheShavingofOccam123: All this despite the fact that taxpayers have paid for a ridiculous, stupefying, unbelievable 68% of NFL stadium construction costs since 1923-a number that has risen astronomically in recent years despite a crippling recession and bankrupt state governments.

That's one of the reasons why I won't be watching the Super Bowl on Sunday. I'm done with a bunch of billionaires who don't mind players having their knees completely torn out (Bowman) but refuse to pay for the buildings those athletes get crippled in.

Fark the NFL. The owners and league are so worried about player health, they're going to add more games and more playoff games. Wheeeeeeeeee!

Enjoy the game. I hope you beat the spread. Me? I'm gonna watch some Netflix, Amazon Prime, Youtube and do some heavy duty cooking.

mjohnson71: under a mountain: Just hold the damn thing in NOLA  every year.

That's what I keep saying. New Orleans handles a Super Bowl without even breaking a sweat. About the only problem is the exodus that Monday at the airport.

EDIT: just fix the power grid at the Superdome.

Not that I have any interest in going to a superbowl, I'm fine watching it at home - but I have had Giants tickets for about 15 years now and this bs is really just getting out of hand.  I'd really like to get Goodell and his ilk in a room with a bunch of my fellow fed up fans, beat them all with crowbars, and then shove their own wallets down their throats until you get the death rattle.  I'd even pay for an official NFL Licensed crowbar beforehand.

Chelle82: FrancoFile: JacobDavidWatson: Generation_D: nekom: NickelP: i really don't care. if you are paying thousands for your ticket that is a minor fee. the super bowl has been out of the reach of the average fan for a good while.

Not literally out of reach, just more than the average person would spend.  If I had wanted to, I could be there.  I could part with 5 grand, I just won't for that purpose.  Not worth it to me, even if my team were in it.

Quite a few Seattle people will be there as part of contingents their employers are sponsoring. Some of the hit-cost gets taken out that way. Agreed, the basic purchase fan price is ridiculous any more.

This last sentence .... is confusing me. I guess they mean the fan price is ridiculous now, or was, or still is...."any more"??

I think that's a regionalism.  "any more" = "nowadays" to some people.

Is that what it is? I see it all the time on Fark, and it makes me crazy. To me, the use of  "anymore" requires a negative. "We don't do that anymore." "It's not like that anymore."

/Sold my Super Bowl tickets because there's no way I'm dealing with the mess at the stadium on Sunday.

I guess irregardless of the fact its not proper grammar, for all intensive purposes that's just how people talk any more.
