Redskins Lions Tickets

I'm looking on Ebay and talking to people around my campus, and I'm figuring out that I could probably land a pair of Redskins Lions tickets for under $25. I wasn't seriously considering going to this game before, because travel and parking costs I figured would be sky high.

However, with the price of gas way down, I could probably find a way to go with one of by college buddies to the Lions-Skins game for under $100 dollars. Is anyone else going? Would this be worth it?

I've yet to see a Redskins game live before, and now three days before the game, this is the first time I'm considering going.

Re: Redskins Lions Tickets

Yes. If the $100 is pretty dispendable for you then it is worth it. Everyone's value of $100 is relative. Unless it breaks you man I'd jump on it.

Re: Redskins Lions Tickets

I'm not going to the game (I think username GusFrerotte is a Detroit resident, he may be going) since I'm in DC, but to see the Skins play for a total of $100 (gas, food, ticket, parking) is a friggin steal compared to FedEx Field. As knowledgable as you are about the Redskins, I think a chance to see us play live for the first time when we're looking good at 5-2 is a golden opportunity.

Re: Redskins Lions Tickets

I would have already jumped on them. Im looking for skins tix for the steelers game and there through the roof. Ppl who buy tix just to make a profit make me sick, leave the tickets for the fans if your not going to go. 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.

Re: Redskins Lions Tickets

Obviously $100 for me is more valuable than to someone who has a salary, but I would still say it's pretty dispensable, as a one time thing.

I'm looking into my options as we speak. I still think I can pull the whole thing off for under $100

Call the ticket office, an email was sent recently stating that 'due to visiting team returns tickets are still available'. I'd try there at least you'd be getting them for cost. Im also going to guess that they are trying to sell the loge seats. good luck.

Re: Redskins Lions Tickets

Yes but if you click on the link for that email, you'll see even Danny Boy jacked up prices for Monday night. The cheapest tickets on there were over 200/ticket.

The only thing available is loge, dream, and club level.

Re: Redskins Lions Tickets

Shortly after moving to NC I bought tickets for the Panthers vs Falcons. It was an NFL game and it cost me under $100 (2 tix, parking and refreshments during the game). Since then I go to every home game the Skins are playing at a different time.
My advice is go this week, and any other week you can afford. Root for the Packers, Bears or whoever else is coming to town. If the tix prices are down take advantage. If the Panthers make the playoffs it is harder for me to get tickets (not Redskin or Packer prices but not AFL prices either) and who knows maybe Detroit will field a team again and prices will go up. Until then, go and have fun.
