Default Cincinnati can't sell out playoff game

As of Friday morning, the game between the Jets and the Bengals is not a sell out. Amazing huh ? Great fans out there I see. What do you blame , a bad economy or a bad fan base ? You will never see this in New York ( or in Pittsburgh) !!!

If you are a true fan...when your team makes the playoffs, (especially as infrequent as the Benglas do) then you move heaven and hell to get tickets.

The Bengals fanbase has traditionally had to rely on half of their stadium being filled by the opposing teams fans. When they play a team who doesnt travel well, then you can see just how piss-poor the bungles fanbase truly is.

How ironic would it be if their playoff game was blacked out?

Can't say they wouldn't deserve it...

Don't worry, I am sure NBC will buy up whatever remaining tickets need to be sold to avoid a blackout. They don't want the Bengals-Jets game blacked out in Cincinnati.

Does this mean that even Bengals fans know that it's one-and-done for their fluke franchise?

I would imagine that the majority of their fans (possibly as many as 7 people) are all homered out over their post season prospects. I don't imagine that the bandwagoneers will be joining them anytime soon. After all, even bandwagoneers have *some* standards.

It is supposed to be retarded cold, maybe that has something to do with it. This isn't a team that has great tradition or a huge waiting list for tickets.

How much of the stadium is left free 15% ? 40% lol.

The Sky is the limit for these Bengal fans at being bandwagoners
