A Pittsburgh buddy of mine swears nobody else "invades" Heinz field successfully, at about 70K seating capacity I think.

Maybe with PSLs and such, going to the game has become, more and more, only for the few people that can afford a lot?

Any of you been to any Oakland games in the past?? It looks like a pretty rough crowd.
Never been, but as long as you go as incognito skins fans you should be ok...

So who will cover the revenue loss of those seats, other fans ,the NFL ?Wasn't one reason the Raiders moved before was for a bigger fan base and stadium?

Wait till that team starts losing a few years in a row. That'll change.

Owners don't care about that. Revenue is the main factor here.

I obviously haven't studied the dynamics, but something that I think about is a 3D/IMAX broadcasting partnership with major movie chains, problem I imagine is most of the concession money would be lost, but maybe some creative businessmen could create models that work.

Maybe NFL could even build (or buy closed out) theaters and renovate them into "Satellite Stadiums" that hold Sunday/Monday/Thursday games, and that way they keep the concession money in house. Other days could be filled with feature films, especially in the summer months, and probably throw in NFL Films days too, where "Best of " regional team games are shown. In Skins country for example, a RFK size stadium, plus regional theater satellites in a few Richmond counties, PG County, Alexandria and Silver Springs, would probably all draw capacity crowds, and make the "at the stadium" experience better.

Satellite theaters make even more sense in rural cities where NFL fans rarely get to experience the feel of live action.

Again, maybe none of this is plausible, but I think it's worth considering over these mega-stadiums.



My guess is that losing the concession money is the biggest reason that stadiums won't shrink, and I don't know a solution to that.

I'd suggest you wear black just so you don't stand out. I'm being completely serious.


When your team is a regular on a site called "Fans Against Violence", that's probably not a good thing.

That's because no one wants to go to Pittsburgh.

Why not? Just think about all the popular old steel mills that have been abandoned since the 70's that you can explore? Or the gritty assholishness of the Steeler fans? "6 rings baby, oh yeah best franchise of all time in the NFL, plus we got Sid the Kid and the Pirates are in 1st place! Greatest city of all time!"

Who wouldn't want to go visit that?

I would take Pittsburgh fans anytime, anywhere over Eagles fans. They are the worst.
