    Udog, What are your thoughts on why the game didn't sell out?

    BTW, I see that the black out deadline has been extended.

    [/QUOTE]

    any answer I give is pure speculation.  I am not sure how the pats handle the playoffs with Season ticket holders, but in indy, I think an offer on these tickets is made to season ticket holders midway through the season.  Payment is required and not refunded, I think, until the colts don't make the playoffs, and even then, if they don't, I think the team applies the money to next year's season tickets unless specifically requested otherwise. 

    It is possible that at the time the offer went out, that the colts did not look like much of a playoff team and so season ticket holders balked.  Further, given the price of tickets, teams always look for deep pockets to fill seats.  In a small market, those deep pockets are signifcantly less than in a large market. 

    I am sure the colts will sell out.  Either way, the NFL has an issue on its hands.  I truly believe it has reached the pinnacle of its financial profitability.  Due to the very high salary cap and teams paying for new stadiums (even public private ventures) tickets have become unaffordable for the vast majority of citizens. 

    I think we are going to see big changes in the league over the next 10 years - especially in the small markets. 

    The league can't just assume there's another small market to send a team to.  LA never supported a team and yet it is the second largest market in the country.  The large markets will always survive, but beyond maybe 15 locations, the league must be worried. 

    I know that's long winded, but I think the league has reached the peak of what they can ask fans to shell out for games.

    [/QUOTE]

    It is offered up around Thanksgiving time and not refunded. If there is no home game, then they apply the amount towards the next season's pricing.

    Of course, here, Krafty Bob might also raise prices as well.

    Since the Colts in a slam dunk winning division had ticket holders who balked, doesn't that mean your fanbase is in a crappy sports town?  If Houston is so bad, Jax so bad, Tenn not challenging, how on earth are the ticket holders not paying for playoff tickets?

    Do you realize how dumb you sound?

    [/QUOTE]

    you telling me I sound dumb is a compliment.  You couldn't possibly know what it means.  A few years back you tried to sell boston as a small market. 

    The only dumb thing I've done on this board is give you the benefit of the doubt.  I always kick myself (like I have over the past couple of days) for doing it.  And I tell myself, as I have just now, NEVER AGAIN.  Russ is the worst kind of human.  I didn't think anyone could be worse than Babe, but...

    [/QUOTE]

    Wow. You seemed to be pretty annoyed by this thread on our board, huh? Interesting.

    So, you're on here with a premise talking about population (you just said Philly was only a big market based on size only) as to what a "market" means, yet it's what I used to explain why Boston at 550K as the main city in a region, similar to Indianapolis, is not that big.

    Hypocrite much?

    Oh boy, UNderpanties, have you got your self in a bind on this one. LMAO

    Please remove you creepy child molester avatar, too.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Not really.  I just like treating you like the b tch you are.  I am not interested in helping you improve your intelligence.  If you are too stupid to undersand, that's your problem.

    Officially unglued.^^

    I can see you have no real counter and have been cornered.   Duly noted.

    [/QUOTE]

    That sounds logical but then how do you explain that Philly is sold out and it's going to be 22 at kickoff Saturday Night.

    philadelphia is the sixth largest MSA in the US.  They have a population to cover any issues.  It has nothing to do with being a great sports town.

    You're clearly a moron. Regardless of what anyone thinks of Philly sports, that is a top 3 sports town in the country. Period. Their fans are loonybirds and passionate.

    1. Boston

    2. Philly/NY

    3. NY/Philly

    It's just the way it is and you clearly haven't traveled around this country much.

    [/QUOTE]

    Yes, Boston is number one.  After all, it only takes six of the United States to support 3 professional franchises.  Whereas in NY/NJ metro alone you only have a measly 9 franchises.

    Jealousy.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    I'm not sure I've ever run across anyone that claims others are jealous anywhere near as often as you do.  Jealousy just isn't a common thing.  But let's say it was, what, in this case, would one be jealous about?

    [/QUOTE]

    Oh, I don't know, the fact Boston is title town over the past 10 years, you being a loser, never seeing your Jets in a SB, not having a college degree, ever touched puss in your life at 45, no career, etc?

    How about that, for starters?

    If you weren't jealous of others, you wouldn't even be here.  

    [/QUOTE]

    Still so obsessed with others sex lives?  God that is so creepy.  So what would make jealous about Boston being "title town"  Are you somehow asuming that I am neither a Red Sox fan or a Celtics fan?  Oh my, small minds are so sad.  This is right in line with your idiot belief that all Jet fans live in NJ. What a moron.  

    I mean, sure I wish I had that photograhic memory, 150+ IQ, multiple masters degrees and the internship at the fortune 50 company, but jealous?  Nope.

    The best part is that you have no idea just how sad and pathetic you are.

    Pat's vs Tenn game in 2004 was 2 with a wind chill minus 10 and yes it was uncomfortable but I don't remember ever feeling like I was in danger and I don't recall reading about many hypothermia issues the next day. That was the coldest game I have ever been to. I was more uncomfortable last Sunday against Buffalo.

    THat was one of my two coldest games.  I guess it wasn't even subzero without the windchill Wink

    I was dressed for it, but it was really cold way up near the top of the third deck.  Oddly, the coldest game I was at at Lambeau (about four degrees at kick off, but sunny) didn't feel nearly as cold as a Detroit game I was there for where the temperature was in the teens, but it was snowing and just damp and uncomfortable.

    I don't envy you guys in the 3rd deck... in the 2nd deck we have the benefit of having more protection from the wind than you guys have.

    Dressing for cold weather is not hard but it takes experience.  Right now it is -15 here. wind chill...-32.    The chickadees crack me up they are flying up to the feeders like every other day...  How birds keep warm is amazing.

    Anyway snowmobile gear is the warmest stuff.  sitting in a football stadium is cold ...  try it going 50MPH.   The wind is the killer.    Helmets are warm  .  Wear a full face MC/ snowmobile helmet with Pat Patriot painted on the side.

    22 is cold, -10 is deadly, ..... The difference between 22 and -10 is the same as 60 and 28, except that the effects on your vital organs are multiples more dangerous.

    Add the wind and any exposed skin can definitely freeze.  The fans in the stands are just standing and are at risk.  The players on the field can work up a sweat, surprisingly, but, the bench players will have to keep warm and they'll have the advantage of heaters, which the fans will not.

    One wonders, on such a cold and dangerous day, would the GB franchise offer free hot liquids to the fans in attendance?  Let them buy food and, brrrrrrrrr, cold beer, but, in the least help keep their fans from suffering as a thank you for being there.

    Dressing for cold weather is not hard but it takes experience.  Right now it is -15 here. wind chill...-32.    The chickadees crack me up they are flying up to the feeders like every other day...  How birds keep warm is amazing.

    Anyway snowmobile gear is the warmest stuff.  sitting in a football stadium is cold ...  try it going 50MPH.   The wind is the killer.    Helmets are warm  .  Wear a full face MC/ snowmobile helmet with Pat Patriot painted on the side.

    That is the problem, as I noted in an earlier post.  When you go to cold weather games, you are just standing there and not generating any "warmth" so as to speak.

    Growing up in NH, I recall playing hockey on the outdoor rinks the city of Nashua would create at playgrounds by plowing out a circle in a baseball field and flooding it.  We'd haul our two, home made, hockey goals down whenever we could.  It would be 0 or worse some days and by the end of playing I am sweating bullets and not feeling a thing, from a cold perspective.  As coolade says...  standing in real cold is the difference versus being active in it.

    Kudos to the corporate sponsor that purchased the remaining tickets and will distribute them local military families.
