Redskins lead league in attendance for 2007 (8th straight year)

link: Ravens and Bengals have most compensatory draft picks, 4 each - USATODAY.com

ATTENDANCE RECORD: For the sixth straight year, the NFL set a paid attendance record, led by the Washington Redskins.

Attendance surpassed 22 million for the second successive season, with 22,256,502 fans paying their way into games, an increase of 56,790 over 2006. The 2007 NFL regular-season total paid attendance of 17,345,205 and the average of 67,755 per game were both records. And 4,119,278 tickets were sold for 65 preseason games, an average of 63,374.

Twelve postseason games drew 792,019 fans, including 71,101 for the Super Bowl in Glendale, Ariz.

The Redskins, who have the league's largest stadium, FedEx Field, led in regular-season home paid attendance for the eighth consecutive season. The Redskins drew 711,471, an NFL mark.

Three other teams topped 600,000 paid home attendance: the New York Giants (629,391), Kansas City Chiefs (622,541) and New York Jets (616,756). Eleven teams drew more than 1.1 million paid attendance home and away during the regular season, led by Washington (1,264,890). The others were the Giants (1,187,915), Jets (1,171,564), Miami Dolphins (1,156,762), Chiefs (1,145,938), New England Patriots (1,131,027), Buffalo Bills (1,129,052), Denver Broncos (1,120,996), Philadelphia Eagles (1,120,090), Green Bay Packers (1,112,753) and Carolina Panthers (1,100,147).

It will accommodate 80,000, with the possibility for expansion to 100,000.

I don't care if we have only three fans to show up in our stadium. As long as the Redskins beat the Cowboys on the field, that's all that matters to me.

I'm pretty sure that is wrong. I think there has only been one major increase in ticket face values in the last several years.

I just bought my 5th year of tickets today (Go Skins!). The price has increased once in five seasons.

Beer has gone from $7 to $7.50 to $8 in four years.
