Default Steelers Nation getting beat

Just heard that so far ticket sales for super bowl tickets are 2 -1 Packers over the Steelers. Will be interesting to see if they out number Steelers fans in Dallas.

I didn't know they asked you which team you'd be rooting for when you bought tickets.

Is this from a legitimate news source or was it really just something you heard?

Is this just for tickets purchased by season ticket holders?

Each team gets the same # of tickets to parcel out to season ticket holders so I wonder what "facts" are being used for the contention Packers fans are buying up the tickets - is Stub Hub polling online purchasers?

One difference will be that Dallas will not be the home games SB XL and XLIII were for the Steelers in Tampa and Detroit. Any Dallas locals at the game probably are not for Pittsburgh, Ben is still a pariah to many neutral fans (especially women). the Packers have the nationwide following the Seahawks and Cardinals did not, and some fans may simply want a new team to win.

Face it guys, the Steelers' national image has been tarnished very badly. I know of many friends that were primary fans of other teams, but the Steelers were always their second favorite team. Four of them actually got tickets for XL and attended wearing Steeler gear. Today, 1 of the guys absolutely hates the Steelers over the Ben issue, and the other 3 are vaguely luke warm.

As much as I'm convinced that Ben's popularity has taken a big hit for his actions, I don't understand why people would hold anything against the Steelers, much less hate them.
Ben acted like a jerk and the Steelers were not at all pleased with what he did, so what's their justification for hating them?
They wanted the FO to trade Ben? This is ludicrous, knowing that Ben hasn't been charged.

Anyway, I don't believe the ratio for ticket sales is 2:1 in favor of the Packers.

i don't think thats true at all. Not only did we lead the NFL licensed merchanise sales (by a wide margin....) and ebay sales, i have a family member who is an executive in Home Shopping and we obliterated everybody in merchandise sales (and these are "last 6 months" numbers.....and the merch ships out to all 4 corners of the country, there's more sold OUT of Pittsburgh, than IN Pittsburgh).
No one i know who lives "afar" and is a Steelers fan has jumped ship, and i know quite a few.
I think those kinds of people are very few and far between.

Read the last line in the article. Not sure how Stub Hub is doint it's polling. But it is 2 to 1 according to this article in the link above. Looks like they are looking at sales from PA vs. WI.

so what if 2/3 of the ones that don't happen to be WI or PA are Steeler fans. Wouldn't that make it more even. The truth is that more people of WI are coming than from PA.
