Yea... the upside is that you could find yourself in a Steeler's bar (if you don't get Sun. Tic.) having a good time around some of your Steeler fanatic comrades. So if you look at it that way, its a "win-win" situation... Just watch the drinking and driving...

The league sets the price that high because they can, since DirecTV is the only game in town for Sunday Ticket. If they offered it to everyone, I guarantee the price would be lower.

That's the hard part. LOL! But I have found myself drinking less and less and just stop around half time, so I am good. Or, my wife goes with and drives.

Thats a problem. Try finding a Steelers bar in potataho, I dare ya. At least in my area.

It's either a fight with all the illegals that want to watch the cowgirls or the donkos and suckhawk fans.

That is a steep price...

Was hoping to get the service soon but will wait until I hit a big time job with a big time pay. In the meantime, Steelers get togethers in bars.

It is just not worth it if people quit ordering it then they will drop the price down.

That's just ricoculous! No way in hell I am paying that. Fortunately I live in VA, where there are at least 20 Steeler Nation bars with 50 miles of my house. Also, since there are so many Steeler fans around here, they usually bitch to the local TV stations enough to get most of the games on the local channels. I remember the last time I had Sunday Ticket(back when I had a good job) and being pissed because more than half of the games were on locally. So I was basically throwing money away. I haven't bought it since.
