Yeah, think about it. If your life savings is suddenly in jeopardy, you're not buying tickets to a playoff game.

$150.00 is a ridiculous face value amount for tickets to these playoff games, but this scenario just illustrates the lack of support for the Cardinals in general. Heck, if I lived in the Phoenix area, I would have bought a ticket just to have been a part of an NFL playoff atmosphere.

It costs between $110-$340 for an AFC Championship Game Ticket at Heinz Field.

Super Bowl XLIII Tickets cost on average about $850 on my guess. Ads cost over $3 Million.

It's roughly $5,000 to go to a Superbowl, is what I've heard. That's for seats, hotel, food and transportation.

That's why living in Tampa has it's privileges. Now all I need is the Super Bowl ticket!!!

But Arizona has no bad-weather concerns, the population in and around Glendale is booming, and these are mostly transplants form football carzy states (not like this is SoCal with a bunch of laid back apathetic slackers).

How embarrassing...

all minnesota sports fans are "only when we are winning fans"..even with the wild....they call them the team of 18,000 but there sure are alot of empty seats during thier games,so the team of 18,000 dont go to all the games...so thats why that is the most overrated stat in sports,the consecative sell outs stat,cause if season tickets sells out your stadium or arena then off course youre going to have that many in a row like that....but as it is for the wild,it doenst mean there is 18,000 people showing up for every game....i think its time they count the tickets that show up for the game...

As for Minnesota, nobody up there cares about sports unless it's the Wild, who have sold out every game since they came into the league in 2001. So it doesn't surprise me that the Vikings can't sell out any games.

of course thats whats going to happen with the games.......thats what has happen in minnesota over the years,but they brag that a vikings game hasnt been blacked out for a long time....but to me they should be ashamed of the fact they have to relay on a tv station to buy thier tickets so they can show the game...and of course the nfl isnt going to black out games,and like i said in my post earlier,its time for them to stop threatning it if they are not going to do it,...
