    Me too. I'm shocked that it's not yet sold out for a playoff game.

    Weather + price + expectations are at play. Who wants to mortgage the house to freeze their butt off watching their team lose?

    Saturday
    Kansas City Chiefs (+2.5) at Indianapolis Colts, 46.5
    New Orleans Saints (+2.5) at Philadelphia Eagles, 54

    Sunday
    San Diego Chargers (+7) at Cincinnati Bengals, 46.5
    San Francisco 49ers (-3) at Green Bay Packers, 48

    I was going to give a knee-jerk answer since my brother and friends refused to go to Foxboro like we have so many prior years for playoff games. They are not sitting through the cold anymore. Wimps.

    But then the Colts? A dome team? Wha?

    One of my guiding principles in life is always be somewhere that it is convenient to have diarrhea. This plus doing calisthenics every 30 seconds to let the people who apparently bought their ticket so they could ignore the game and focus on paying $13 for a bottle of beer and the long, traffic-laden journey to the stadium makes live games a love/hate thing for me. I would do 1-2 games a year, typically, and that was just about right.

    I think stadiums are going to deal with this more and more and if the answer continues to be 'black out the game' then the NFL is going to look woefully out of touch.

    Compared to the pats were cheapest face value is 90$. Just think of what it's like in Jacksonville you could most likely walk up and pay under 20$ for good seats.

    My brother in law has really timed out trips to other stadiums well. He went to a Notre Dame game on a Saturday and then went to Lambeau the next day to watch the Packers. Another time he went to see Michigan at the big house on a Saturday then saw the Bears at Solder on a Monday night. He's done similar in September doing a baseball\football combo in the same city like going to Baltimore, AZ and others.

    If you're planning a trip like that I really think it's the way to do it since you're paying for airfare why not get the most out of it you can.

    In all seriousness, I've mentioned a possible Green bay trip next season to several of my friends, a few (ahem) r Packer fans and they were interested. It would be a good thing..to experience the "frozen tundra"!!!! even if it were in Sept, with other Pats Fans. Keep it in mind.
