Re: Redskins Lions Tickets

Shoot dude they still have over 5,000 left!!!!!! Get on Ebay or Amazon maybe. Or just go through NFL.com and hit the Lions homepage and get some via ticketmaster. I got the cheap ticks for the upper level at only $55, but I am sure you can get them cheaper now on Ebay, etc. It looks like the game is going to be blacked out in Detroit, so unless you are in the DC area you might not be able to see it. It would be worth it even if you get the tickets I got. Only word of advice is to eat before or after the game. Ford Field Concessions are a total gouging experience. Avoid parking at the parking structure across from the stadium. It is like $30-$40 to park there. If your bud is from the area, he might be able to find a free parking spot within easy walking distance. Try to avoid parking downtown if you can so you have an easy time of going home.

I sat in Section 141 last week and paid $141 per ticket, now the same tickets are $531 a piece(face value of $99). So to end my rant, yes you should jump on them. Theres nothing like going to a skins game live.
Suppy versus demand, it's simple. You got a prob, get on the waiting list and buy your own every year. It's extemely hard to make money on season tickets. You pay full price for preseason games and might not sell them at all. So you eat that. My wife and I have season tickets (8) I've just sold 4 for the Steelers game. Finally made a profit on some tickets. The previous home games have all been losers financially. I made money the first year we had the tickets (2001) I think. Lost money every year since. Try to go to the Giants game each year, won't be able to do it now, can't get off of work. I won't give up the tickets yet as my plan is to use them more when I retire. The wife and I were on the waiting list 13 years. Not giving them up unless I really have to. So if it makes you sick that people are making money on their tickets, don't buy them, simple as that. The Skins have not really been doing well so people haven't had a desire to go to the games, now they are playing better, getting some wins and now people want tickets. Supply and demand, simple.

What are you talking about?? The redskins have one of the longest sellout streaks in the league. Good or Bad there are fans overpaying to see the team. I've been on the wait list now for five years. I bet you are one of the "loyal" redskin fans who sell their tickets to cowboys and eagles fans.

Well, I live in Upstate NY now dude. Kinda hard to get to the game. You've been on the list 5 years? My wife and I were on it 13 years, quit your crying. We both have 4 tickets. Most of the time my tickets go Skins fans. You exaggerate when you say people way overpay for tickets. The only real demand this year is the Steelers, Cowgirls, Eagles and then the Giants. Haven't broken even on any of the tickets until the Steelers. Enjoy the wait, it'll be worth it when it's your turn.
