Default Cards Implement "Anti-Cowboys Fans" Plan

Quote:
Cards Ticket Plan Aims to Keep Cowboys Fans Out

Mike Tulumello, Tribune

The Cardinals are trying to "protect the nest."

This means they'd like University of Phoenix Stadium to continue to sell out, and to do so with as few opposing fans as possible.

In the past two seasons, there was little concern about this since the team sold out every home game.

But with ticket sales a bit slower as the third season approaches, the Cardinals are requiring fans who want to buy tickets to the Dallas game on Oct. 12 to also buy tickets for the Aug. 7 exhibition opener vs. New Orleans.

Cardinals fans have "created a decisive home-field advantage" the past two years, and the team wants to keep it that way by discouraging single-game ticket sales to Cowboys fans, team spokesman Mark Dalton said.

"Our goal is to have as many Cardinal fans in the stadium as possible," Dalton said.

In terms of overall ticket sales, "We're a little slower than we were at this point" last year, Dalton said, citing the slowing economy.

Dalton estimated about 58,000 season tickets have been sold.

Ideally, the Cardinals would like to sell about 60,000 season tickets and hold back 3,000 or so to sell for individual games.

"If we don't get to that threshold, then there will be a few more individual single-game tickets available," Dalton said.

Didn't San Diego do something like that a few years ago to Steeler fans?? If I remember right in order to get tickets for the regular season game you had to buy two pre-season tickets with it.

The Dolpins did this in 2004. In order to buy Steelers tickets, I had to buy tickets for the cardinals game later in the schedule. THankfully I'm within driving distance and my father came down so we had a nice trip to Miami with me, my dad, my brother, and my son.

There are several teams that do this to the Steelers. The most laughable is the Jags. They can't even convince their own redneck fans to buy enough tickets to sell that stadium out, but they want to block out Steelers fans?

Retarded.

Easy on the Rednecks there Revel....
The Jaguars are just having alot of problems selling tickets, so I dont see why they care who buys the tickets as long as they sell them. The Jags are so much better than our team in '07 it wouldnt have mattered anyway

This doesn't surprise me, lots of teams do this to the Steelers when they're on the road.

The fact is Jacksonville can't sell out a home game to save their life unless Pittsburgh travels down there. Our two close losses to them on 2007 doesn't change that fact.
