...forcing them to buy multiple tickets just to attend one game.

now why wouldnt our opponents want the greatest fans in the world to come to their stadiums and buy their fish tacos and beer? :grin:

the great part is "half" of stadiums. Not just the upper 500's but half. I don't think I have even seen other colors at Heinz field.

Most teams sell tickets to the general public, and isn't it something that you cannot even get a ticket to a game in Pittsburgh unless you are on the List or dig deeply into your pockets. In fact you can not even park unless you pay bigtime. We just paid $456. something for 3 parking passes in Gold Lot 1, for our annual tailgate.

The funny thing is, I've heard that Steelers fans are still buying the tickets and then just selling the other shitty game tickets on eBay.

Wow did you ever stop and think, maybe they don't have it in for you wonderful team...That anyone who buys a ticket has to buy one for another game also.......I know my dad did and he is a Bengals fan.

Delusional hey the reason for the multiple tickets is to keep the large amount of Steeler fans out of the stadiums, due to the large amount that buy tickets and attend away games. This isn't a opinion it is a fact. So next time before you post a "wonderful" reply know what the hell your talking about.

you might want to read the article. the opponents have done this for the STEELER games.

bengals just do it to sell out their crappy games that noone wants to see. i assume youre talking about bengals home games. 5 teams have done this for when the steelers are the visiting team.

I have heard somthing like this before... I don't think it is right at all. Steelers fans are all over the nation and many travel to games. I have been to games here in Cincy where it has been like 50% or 60% Steelers fans. They were chanting "Hines feild west"... It was great.

At the Dallas game last year there were a bunch of Steelers fans...

I don't get it we don't want to sell out to other teams fans, so we will play at less than capacity, but we can pack up a team and play in Mexico City or London?

I really think every away game the Steelers play has a good showing of Steeler fans. I don't think this would stop Steeler fans though. Like some one metioned...I would buy the tickets and sell the rest on E-Bay....not that big of a deal!!! They can try to stop us...but I don't think it will work.
Hey BB2W are you going to the Cincy game this year???? I will be there. If so we should go tailgating!!!
Just get the tickets off E-Bay....there is never a problem finding them....I'm going to 2 of those games that theyy are trying their best to keep us out of....it won't work for me!!! GO STEELERS!!! :blurp:

I don't think I will be going this year... some guys at work were talking about it, but I haven't heard anything else. If I do I will let you know. :cool:

We will have to catch a game at one of our local sports bars before the season is over. I really miss Damon's.

:idea: We should hook up when our fantasy teams are playing eachother.
