the nfl needs to make NFLTV like MLBTV on the internet...
Well...I wouldn't call it a rip off. Depends on where you live. I drive 45 minutes at 5:45 AM (still dark out) to go watch live games with Steeler Faithful.

I'm force fed Raider and 49er games on the networks. Not anymore. If I calculate the number of hours of entertainment I'll be getting this season including the chance to record Steeler games then for me it's worth it. Plus I split it.

I still be making the 1 1/2 hour trek to watch the Steeler games with the Faithful (highest gas prices in the US too). Thankfully fewer games will require me to get up before the birds this season.

If you live near Fairfax, the Fast Eddie's on Rte 50 is where my family goes to watch the games. It usually gets a little crowded, but if you get there about 1/2 hour, 45 min before game time, guaranteed a seat, its never "standing room only". We are crazy there tho!!!

Yep. Other than being at Heinz Field and watching the game live, there is no better way to cheer on the black and gold than watching the games with your Steelers brothers and sisters at a Steelers bar! I live in the Burgh and a lot of the time if I don't have tickets to the games, I go to a local Steelers bar with a couple of friends not too far from my house to share in the excitement with local Steelers fans - there is nothing like it!

I love the ticket. I live in Indy so my choices would be the colts on cbs or the bears on fox, so you can see I need the package. I would like them to change the package, I would just like to buy a Steeler package.

its a rip off for me, im 17, my parents arent willing to spend 69 a month for 4 months which is $280. Also, because im 17, the local bar, Ziggs, is hesitent to let me go there with out my dad, who never wants to watch the game, he could care less if he misses it most of the time. We have plenty of bars to watch the game though so if they dont le me in ziggs, i know another bar with nice plasma TVs, actually two two or three bars, so this year i'll be smarter about it, PLUS this season i have my own car and my license so things will defiantly be different this season.
