    Dear Nescott, I heard a rumor that the only reason they're charging the $49 is to cover Ben R's deductible.

    And we're supposed to be the "cheapskate" organization.

    To paraphrase Jason Robards from the film "Parenthood" when the Rooney's find a nickel they huddle together and bury it like squirells.

    I dont think the steelers think they will win another superbowl for a while so they are trying to make the most of this one.

    The $49 charge is the retail price. It's only $39 if you agree to a motorcycle ride with Ben.

    What's the big deal? Pittsburgh already held their victory parade in February.

    This is a rock concert with a championship theme. Concerts are held at Gillette all the time and no one complains. Why is it money-grubbing just when another team does it?

    You all missed the funniest part.

    The money's going to Belichick's buddy.:D

    This doesn't seem to be an issue on the Steeler board.

    Yep, I think some folks here are falling hard for the marketing angle. It's not an "SB Celebration," it's a Bon Jovi concert.

    Exactly... in fact one of these Bon Jovi concerts was scheduled for Gillette a couple of summers ago with the Patriots included in the billing but was cancelled at the last minute due to a conflict...

    Dude...it's a Bon Jovi concert... just one stop on their summer tour. They're playing at Gillette on July 27th. They're capitalizing on the SB theme to sell more tickets in Pitt.

    I read that Bon Jovi got Belichick his own drum set when he toured Europe with them as a road companion. They must have been tired of him banging away on the band's drum set.... :singing:
