I passed also…I didn’t even take the upper levels…I had upper levels when I was younger, and I choose not to go backwards…

  For me, paying the extra buck to go to the top 2-3 games per year is worth it....... Also, I had been eating at least 1 pre-season game per year and missing about 2 games a year anyway (and selling them to friends for face value)......   No brainer for me......Maybe I'm getting older but the last home game (the last few years) being played in bitter cold weather got to be a turnoff (even if it was meaningful) compared to watching it on the tube with a few friends, a few beers, and some good food......

[quote=Lawrence]I refuse to go to any professional sporting event (except when it is for clients). In my opinion, the pricing has hit a tipping point and I no longer wish to support their industry with my money.

When I watch a football game, it is at my local watering hole. They have a big flat screen TV and all the regulars show up for every game. I drink whatever the game special is and some wings and when it is all over, I have a 5 minute walk home.

Going to the stadium is so 1920’s.

  You know watching it on tv supports them also right???   The NFL gets $3Billion/year in tv revenue( and that is paid regardless if they have a lock out or not)[/quote]   Exactly !   Way to take a stand Larry! Larry drives to the local pub with his $5 team bumper sticker, $25 team hat, $250 authentic jersey, $15 velcro team wallet, overpays for beer so the bar can pay for the Direct TV feed on 15 TV's that they bought at Sears who has Brett Favre as a spokesman !!!! Screw those ticket prices !!!!!!

Exactly !

Way to take a stand Larry!

Way to pay attention Ronnie! I live in NYC…so I walk to the pub (5 minutes). I do not own any fan clothing/merchandise - I’m all about dressing sharp. There’s nothing sharp about a football jersey. (no offense, if that’s your style - just not mine.)



The pub may pay for direct TV, but that has no effect on the price of my beer.



The only negative is since I don’t have to drive, I can drink as much as I want - and I like my drink - so Monday mornings can have their challenges. But that’s a different issue.

Drinking and walking is more dangerous than drinking and driving statistically.  Think about it next time you walk to the pub.
