I'm in the "Red Zone". Kind of surprising that it isn't sold out. If ever there was an NFL game that could end up 77-70, this is it. Its awesome that you're trying to help out a 'Zoner, didn't mean to come off like a smartass.

nice I found some tickets in the "red zone" on stub hub. Mrod and I like the end zone seats its like watching a madden game. You can watch the holes and plays develop. Ill probably get some there if no one on here has any by the end of the day. Yeah I was suprised when I went to the team site and tickets are availble. Good for me I guess. no worries didnt take it as a smart ass, i would have thought getting tickets for this game would be really hard. Sounds like the vikings and packers game are harder to get...go figure.

rody I may have some for you. I went in with some peeps. 19 rows off the field in the corner of the end zone. I think they want to sell all four as a package though. You got two more friends that would be interested. Probably face value for a zoner.

Defending NFC Champs, and they're having trouble selling out games, that's pretty sad.
The whole league is having the same problems. Jax & San Diego both were blacked out last week, and the Chargers have been good for a number of years.

Has nothing to do with the defending NFC champs.

Of course every game has sold out in Glendale, as will this one.

The Charges have also had a problem filling their stadium for years especially when they are bad. I've been down there probably about 15 times to see them play and I would say half the time the stadium is not sold out. That's Southern California for you and yes that's where I live.

Exactly, think of how many people lost there jobs; it comes down to food on the table or couple hundred bucks on a game. Most of the guys I know who have season tickets sold every seat to every game. They needed the money but didn’t want to give up their tickets hoping they will be able to turn the corner for next year. I think its more a reflection on the economy rather than the team(s)

And yes this game will sell out by the friday deadline but it doesnt matter because it is the game of the week and will be on TV for the locals.

It will sell out if it comes down to eating 1000 seats or advertising revenue, the local tv station will purchase the seats. They do it everywhere else. Side note, the scalpers were selling lower level for 65 bucks, an hour before the opener.

THere are lots of companies that have in the past held at least 10 seats maybe a box and they cant afford to have them any longer. There are a shitload more fans this year than there were last year, its just not as easy to pay for the tickets right now. We are in a unique situation and it makes people lose track of reality.

Was my understanding that usually the owners or organization pick up the remaining tix, and bidwell wont do this.

Sorry but you are wrong.

1st the deadline is Thursday at 1:00 not Friday. The NFL can but does not have to extend the deadline for 24 hours until Friday.

And if the game does not sell out, it WILL NOT be on TV. Because it is the"game of the week" does not matter. All NFL games are blacked out locally if they do not sell out.

OK if you want sound like a know it all here it is Hammer. This game will not be blacked out if for only one reason. Becasue it is the "game of the week". There were agreements made long before the schedule came out that if if was not a sell out certin businesses and T.V., stations, etc would buy the remaining tickets. Sunday night games are scheduled based on them being a sellout.

Oh and another thing, it is a 72 hour rule so the deadline is at 5:20pm and not 1:00pm on Thursday.

Correct and the NFL has never refused to extend a deadline to a team so the thursday time line is really a mute point and the team has till friday. And to go even further they have only not extended the deadline to saturday one sense it was put into a leauge rule

You may remeber it was extended to saturday last year for the cards playoff game.
