    Just wondering with the economy the way it is, and what it cost to go to a game.. Will you be going to a game this yr.. I used to go to 3 a yr, Im not sure if im going to 1 yet.. the wife and I usually make the treck to Boston once together so that may be it.. But lets just see what that will cost

    Cheapest 2 tickets in a half way decent section- 250.00 per ticket

    Room - 99 2 days

    parking - 40

    gas - 100.00

    plus shoping food .. Ugh maybee I should leave the wife home:rolleyes:


    but you go yourself

    cheapest ticket- 175

    room 99

    Gas- I get a headache thinking about it..


    I wonder though if parking will go up, if that is the case, buying a flat screen.

    Anyway just curious what the plans are for fellow fans that usually go, or have never been to a game, but are going this yr...

    Cheapest ticket...on eBay?

    You can get face value tickets before the game in pretty much any seating level. Your problem is that you have to plan your trip well in advance, so tickets on Thursday or Friday won't do. But if you had TicketXchange or used TicketMaster and got lucky, you could be sitting a few rows up for face value (although that's $125-150 with the price increase). They even had Row 1 seats behind the bench available on TX for the Jets game last December.

    I'm on the waitlist and my current plan is to try to get some front row seats in the 300s for one regular season game and then splurge for good seats at a home playoff game (assuming of course there is one).

    There will be two home playoff games.

    Bet on it.

    (Although I have been wrong in the past...)

    I live 8 hours away and made it to both SD games last year. The gas price is really going to kill my ideas of going to one this year. The only other thing I might do is take my wife's company vehicle since it has a gas card. But usually she won't let me take it since she has to take it to work. But I guess I could have the wife come with me to the game... Oh the sacrifices we make!

    Isn't Patriot Place constructed on what used to be parking lot? So there are fewer parking spaces available......simple supply and demand?

    Nope just Kraft jacking up the prices $5 ever year or two. I have to imagine we're getting pretty close to the maximum level people will pay for parking. Parking is almost as expensive as the cheap seats are now.

    Count yourself lucky, having just priced it up for me and the missus to go to a game it would be £1,500 or $3,000.

    And thats just tickets+flight+hotel.

    My buddy sells cars in Atlanta. One of his customers is Rodney Harrison's best friend. Went to the Squeeler game on the cuff last year. Plan to go to that one again this year. Thanks Rodney!!!!

    Also planning to go out to San Fran for that game. Gonna wear the gear proudly. Hope the haters are out in force. Course I am 6'2" 275 so I doubt I will hear much......

    Well,

    I hit the financial wall earlier this year, so I will be staying home and watching the games on the flat screen.

    I had hoped to be able to make at least two home games this year, but them's the breaks. Sigh...:bricks:
