Are they going to sell enough tickets to lift the black out? This is mindboggling to a football fan. You nearly win the Super Bowl and can't sell out the first game by now? Let the excuses begin...
like Rome and the gladiatorial games?Perhaps the slow down in the economy will finally take it's toll on professional athletes. I'm all for people making as much as they can but lets be honest, do you think any of these guys are walking away because of a 25%-50% cut in pay? It's just time to adjust the ticket, parking and concession prices back into the current market so the fans can afford to attend. In order to do that the owners and their employees will have to take a pay cut. If they continue to think they are above everyone else and continue to price everyone out of the market perhaps the whole thing will eventually crumble?
naw, they just suck. its not a theory, its a fact.1st theory-
3 million people vacated this state over a year ago, I'm sure half of them were Cowboy fans. The other half were hard working folks in fear of their lives from Sheriff Joe. I don't back illegals, but there is serious $$$ wrapped around their efforts on being here and working. I sh*t you not, the local C-store franchise owner misses their $$$$.
Housing in the toilet( Las Vegas too), unemployed near double digits.
To go to a game right now is $200 for a family of four with decent seats.
If you look on this site, people are just getting by for a few dollars until the next check comes along; paycheck to paycheck. No excuses, just a BS economy and we have to survive.
I think the seats that are not filled are acutally folks who would hope that they will catch the game on TV wishing that they could be there. They are still fans, just can't afford the ticket to get to the game.
We live in a state that is migratory and everybody that lives here is from somewhere else like Chicago or St. Louis.
The Bears and Rams both suck! Not enough Cardinal fans yet! This year will be the year to settle that. We will conquer and be the best of the best. Go Cards!!
The Cardinals sold out every game last year too. Let's see how their attendance is this year. In my industry this is the year that most businesses are really starting to feel the crunch.Really? Is that why New Orleans (who didn't make the playoffs last year and is a very hard hit economic area) sells out?
