My father and I spend about $1500 a year on our two tickets and parking, for 10 games. A little more if there's a playoff game at home. A fun tradition since '96, and I've missed all of two regular season games at home. TV is great, but for me, I prefer to be in the stadium. You see more of the play unfold, our "seat neighbors" are a lot of fun, and the atmosphere is awesome. Well worth it for me.
It's a shame they can't keep a few thousand truly "low price" tickets available that could get in to more peoples' hands, but chances are someone would wind up scalping them anyway...
Crap, i gotta pay a extra 8.50 a ticket now
Also to compare the average movie cost in 1999 was about $5 now it is about $8. The average Oriole ticket in 1998 was about $18 now it is about $26. The average Ravens ticket in 1999 was about $42 and last year it was about $92. (I admit my research is based on a quick google and may not be 100% accurate but it still proves my point that football is increasing ticket prices way too much and eventually it will hurt attendance.)
Perhaps, but there's still a PSL waiting list so I don't see that happening any time soon
I'd much rather be at the games than watching at home on TV. The excitement and crowd energy is just something you can't get at home. I don't really mind bad weather as long as I'm dressed appropriately. Football is the only sport I really watch, so 8 games a year plus some away games is nothing. We're talking 10-12 days out of 365.
here are a couple of useful links to determine just hiow much you may ahve overpaid....
