Much better to be watching from a warm casino with cold beer.
The whole state of Jersey should get in their cars and clog all the highways around the stadium. Payback for that fat fuck's gestapo bridge blockade.
This will be hallmarked as one of the worse decisions ever.... to hold the Superbowl in the NYC area in the middle of winter....
...the brains behind this decision should be in politics...
Then again, them jigs in New Orleans couldn't even keep the lights on.
I think they are.
ticket sales are slow, and prices are falling. Gee, I wonder why.
playing the game in Miami, 80 degs, sunny skies, would be an asinine idea
plus nobody in the NE really cares about these teams. not $2000 cares
IMO, New York should build their own fucking stadiums if they want to continue to call teams who play in NJ as "New York _____."
Fucking snotty cunts, always use our state like it's their backyard and shit on us continuously.
I think it's fun and different. I hope it snows 2 feet. What do I care if sale prices drop.
Also? Don't want shitty weather on Superbowl Sunday? Don't schedule the game in a state where it's known to be fucking cold as fuck in February. Otherwise, suck it up.
Oh yeah, and what's with stadiums in 2014 that don't have domes that close?
Prices plummet for SB tickets
"Two hungry fan bases and the wealth of the New York metropolitan area had some guessing that Super Bowl XLVIII would turn out to be the most expensive ticket in Super Bowl history.
However, judging from the reaction of the resale ticket market in the past 24 hours, it could turn out to be one of the least expensive.
On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league's official resale site. That's $409 cheaper than it was on the site with this many days left last year and $809 cheaper than the year before.
Since the conference championship games ended, ticket prices have steadily plummeted. The get-in price on the NFL Ticket Exchange was $2,700 on Monday.
A sign of concern for brokers?
Julia Vander Ploeg, general manager of Ticketmaster's resale business, which runs the NFL Ticket Exchange, said the number of tickets on the market has increased by 10 percent in the past 48 hours. And that's before the NFL has even given the physical tickets to the majority of people the league is taking care of.
"What we have now is like a panicked stock market," said James Kimmel, owner of Epic Seats, a ticket brokerage in Seattle. "The buyers have frozen, and the sellers are panicking."
their conclusion: "if people are spending $2500-4000 to travel and watch a game, they want to be comfortable" gee, that's a shocker
Yes. And make that shit heel NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell direct traffic. In a t-shirt.
It's so fubar. The Dallas Cowboys are in Arlington, the San Fran Niners will be moving 50 miles away from SF, the Washington Redskins don't play in DC, and both the Jets and Giants would be more aptly named the New Jersey Jets/Giants.
And the Braves are moving out of Atlanta and will continue to be called the Atlanta Braves, despite the suburbs here having absolutely nothing but disdain for Atlanta.
Pisses me off. Fuckin' be honest about it. If you're in New Jersey, you're no longer a New York team.
All the tickets to the Super Bowl have been sold. This article refers to the resale of tickets. They are making a big deal about a sold out game.
I agree with this. It's fucking FOOTBALL!!!
It's in football lore. The Ice Bowl. The NFL Films talking about the "frozen tundra."
The big issue at play here is the SB is NOT about real football fans. It's about corp. sponsors and all that BULLSHIT.
What's the lowest SB tick going for now? $1,800?
Who fuckin' pays that for a football game?
Someone who is there to be seen OR someone who is there on a corp junket.
Neither of which have much to do with the actual game.
Football season ends with the NFC and AFC champ games IMO.
...and theres that whole thing about the statue of liberty. its in new jersey but everybody goes to ny to see it.
And Christie told the NY Nets to fuck off for exactly the same reason.
They have enough money for a team but don't have enough money for a stadium in the city that bears the same name as their team.
