    Living here in Maryland, looking to take my son to the Pats-Redskins game in a week and a half. I've been checking out Stubhub and the TicketNetwork/IQ Ticket thing on Boston.com.

    Does it make sense to wait until the week of the game and hope the ticket prices fall as we get nearer to the game? Also, how confident can I be with Ebay, Ticketnetwork or Stubhub that the tickets will be real?

    Any words of wisdom are appreciated.

    You can't go wrong with Stubhub or ticketmaster ticket exchange. I've never had a problem with Ebay either, but I guess there is some risk there. However Ebay owns Stubhub, so you can now view both ebay auctions and stubhub tickets on ebay. Just bought Guns N Roses tickets off of stubhub and had no problem with it.

    I planned on going to that game as I live in Stafford, VA. But my son's AYF team made the AYF national championships down at Disneyland and I won't be back until the Saturday before the game. And I don't think I'll be up for going to the game after the long drive home.

    I'm going to the Pats-Skins game and got my tix about three months ago on eBay. You might have your best luck there price-wise. You have a good degree of protection paying with Paypal.

    Thanks everyone - - you guys are giving great insight as I knew I would get here.

    Thanks, Joker, but when I click on that Aceticket website, the stadium map shows no tickets available - - all they show is a travel package from Boston for $599/person for that Redskins game. Since I'm already down here, I'm just looking for tickets. I'm finding good stuff in the meantime on the Stubhub site and am just debating right now whether to wait a few more days if the prices go down closer to game day.

    yeah...that's normal SOP...call them during the day....I called for a Yanks game that was listed sold out on their site...the guy called me back an hour after I asked him to find what he could...had seats everywhere in all price ranges.

    BTW, if price isn't a major concern, I suggest you look for seats in the 100's...you'll need telephoto binocs if you sit in the 300's

    wait...major misunderstanding here...the game is IN Washington???

    Yup...E-Bay or Stub Hub...ACE won't have that ticket

    Thanks for trying, man. Yeah, the game is down here and Stubhub and that Boston.com link to Ticketnetwork/IQ seem to be giving me good options. I've been looking for anything in sections 120-123 (behind the Pats bench as close to the field as possible) and am just trying to get the best price for the lowest row. I'm guessing the field level boxes just below (the double digit sections) would probably pose a sightline problem for my son.

    Heres 2 tickets, 35 yard line 2nd level for $157.00 Not bad. Buy Sports, Music and Theater Tickets at Washington Post Id rather be sitting up a bit to see the whole field.

    Ive bought tickets from Ebay and Stubhub and even out of classifieds in newspapers without any problems. If possible, I always create a paper trail paying with a certified bank check, emails back and forth and the sellers phone number/address.

    I Already got my tickets (upper deck) to the game and I was wondering how many folks from Pats Fans will be at the game. This is my wife's first NFL game and my first game since a Monday night game in Denver when Bledsoe, Martin and Glenn were on the team.

    Do any of you have advice regarding the fans, traffic, tailgating or anything else that crosses your mind at Fedex?

    Hey Shmes

    The Redskins don't put individual game tickets on sale until the week or week before the game. I learned this in August.

    I would check there first.

    Having bought tickets from various sites, the price variances are immaterial.

    I would have imagined with their season, prices should have fallen alot.

    My tickets for the game were 3XX section/ $193 total/ purchased in August.

    I don't know if the Redskins are like the Pats in that they have their own resail section that is only open to season tickets waiting list folks. But if they do you might want to join the waiting list and then use that. Once the season is over you can quit the waiting list and get your deposit back.

    I have a friend who a Dolphins fan who is on the Patriots season tickets waiting list. Doesn't want to be a season ticket holder, but figures there is no risk of that happening as long as Brady is on the team. Just put himself on the list to buy tickets thru the resale section once a year.
