Check out the new stadium tickets

A small, lucky group of season-ticket holders on Tuesday morning won a lottery to buy a pair of face-value tickets for Super Bowl XLVII at $850, $950 or $1,250 apiece. Like the rest of us, the remainder were left to scour the Web for re-sale tickets averaging more than $3,000 per seat.

wtf ????????

Some suites at the Super Bowl this year are going for $294,000. shocked

I read that at the 49'ers new stadium opening in 2014 fans must pay a new, one-time seat license fee of $2,000 to $80,000 per seat, and then buy season tickets at $850 to $3,750 a year.

Such excess. One reason why I lost interest in professional sports years ago.

Holy shiit - you Black Cat Man laugh

I have to say at some point this sport will price themselves out of the spectators <-- this may be that year ?

The cost of these things is ridiculous. I can't believe people put up with and don't lose interest--everyone should be like Jim!

And big-time college isn't far behind. What a racket.

I think it was cheap, carp. The idea of bread and circus was that you kept the people complacent by giving them entertainment and enough food to quiet the belly. The key term is "give," I think. I don't know how factual Juvenal was in his satire, but it seems credible to me that both the bread and the circus were, if not free, then next to it. The modern counterpart? TV.

I was thinking the same thing. Seats were cheap, if not free at the colosseum .

Not anymore.

Now, even the non professional events are controlled by enterprise. All of the bowl games are now called first a brand name

Maybe we should name our schools and public services after sponsoring brands..

How much does a cheap seat cost at a regular NFL game?

Ironically, though football is my favorite sport to watch next to sumo, I have never seen a live NFL game even though I have been to see pro baseball and soccer.

Never seen a pro game either - from what I can see on TV is that you are sitting so far away is that you don't see much detail at all . So its more for people who like to be in the crowed thingy , group cheering yada yada.

To me is far better on TV and if I want the crowed thingy , I'll go to a sports bar.
