Re: F... Selling Tickets to the Visiting Team

I don't believe the fan presense was the reason we lost...Although I certainly won't deny the impact of the home field advantage simply as a psychology student.

My problem with selling tickets to opposing fans simply because they offered more is something completely different.

Jacking up the price all the time is turning the sport into an elitist game. Everyone likes football regardless of social status. Your quick buck is making the game something snobby and reprehensible.

Steelers have their own stadium, and I don't care what team I support, I certainly hope that steelers fans get the chance to see their favorite team play. We deserve the same. Let's not forget it's a game, it's supposed to be about having fun. But when you rob people of there chance to see their team play by selling your tickets to the oppisition, your creating a negative atmosphere that doesn't help the competetion, it just makes the entire game less enjoyable.

Politicts has some of the shaddiest followers in any event in human history, people do just about anything to force and brainwash people out of their beleifs. Yet I went to two Obama ralley's this campagin season and never saw a bunch of Mccain supporters taking up all the seats so we couldn't see our hero, nor did I see this happening the other way around. Are you telling me republicans are more honorable than skins fans?? How is that possible?? (Please don't take that to seriously, lol)

Re: F... Selling Tickets to the Visiting Team

Apparently, somebody already started a thread about this issue.

Well, here it goes again; STOP!

Selling your fucking tickets to opposing fans!

Tonight we were beat as fans; we lost because our fans could not go without selling our tickets away to the opposing team.

In no way should we feel like the away team in our own stadium. Steelers fans were all over the fucking place.

I can go on and on about this, but I would rather say; be sure to sell your tickets to a skins fan. Take a pay cut; support your team, we will all be happier on Monday and Tuesday.

FU to all of those who gave tickets away to the Steelers!

Good lord, NO, IT IS NOT THE REASON WE LOST. Fuck, people. But it's jacked up that "fans" would sell their seats to all of mf'ing Steeler nation. If anyone here doesn't get that, I don't know what else to tell you.

I can only imagine how it feels to have 30,000 people cheering against you on your home field..
See, DR gets it. Reading is fundamental kids.

Re: F... Selling Tickets to the Visiting Team

cost us losing or not, which in the overall scheme of things momenetum wise, and player confidence, it was an embarrasment and all the fans not at the game felt it.

It may not be the reason we lost, but the game could have been closer. It's called a home-field advantage for a reason. Tonight, it didn't happen.

To put it simply, It's a FUCKING EMBARASSMENT! To the team, and to any REAL fans. I'm ASHAMED! ASHAMED that on national T.V., even the announcers commented on how many Steeler fans were in OUR HOUSE! I wish I could take the ticket from every COCKSUCKING SEASON TICKET HOLDER that does'nt go to at least half of our home games and give them to someone who gives a shit.

Kornheiser sure made it a point to mention that a couple of times. I swear, sometimes I think he hates all the local teams.

Kornheiser calls it as he sees it (remember his Bandwagon columns?) - our fans deserved to be called out tonight. After seeing that on national TV, how can we defend our fan base when we let the enemy raid our home games like that?

Off the top of my head, that sort of invasion would NEVER occur in Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago, Philly, New England, Denver or at the New York (Giants). Pittsburgh plays in Baltimore every year, and I don't recall Ravens fans ever surrendering their home field advantage to the enemy the way we did tonight. I'm more embarrased by our no-show fans than by our team's performance tonight, and that's saying something.

Do I dare say that ticket prices have risen so much that true fans can't afford them. Instead, we have these corporate types, who buy them as a symbol of their wealth and willingly give these tickets up when the game becomes an inconvenience?

And I agree on your comment about Kornheiser...I used to be a huge fan of his until he blew up at the critcisism he got after his first MNF outing.

You only attempt to invade Philly if you have some sick and twisted deathwish. I'm afraid to walk through Philly with a Skins jersey on.

You've hit the nail right on the head Ruhskins. It's a shame.

Come on Rave. I bet you would if you had 34,999 other Redskin fans with you.
