    I was thinking because it's in Indy that most people would be cheering for the Giants, then I did some research, what I found was that only 5% of the Tickets go to the host team. Not sure if this is accurate, does anyone know how tickets are distibuted?

    This is what I found...


    Super Bowl tickets aren't easy to purchase, and if you want to go to the big game, it is important to know how the tickets are distributed in the first place. Every year, tickets go to teams, charities, NFL affiliates, VIPs, corporate sponsors and networks before being offered to the general public. Participating Team Tickets

    About 75 percent of the Super Bowl ticket allotment goes to all NFL teams, which they can distribute to fans as they see fit. The two participating teams receive the biggest percentage, each getting 17.5 percent of the tickets available.
    Non-Participating Team Tickets

    The host team (the Miami Dolphins in 2010) receives 5 percent of available tickets while the remaining 29 teams not participating in the Super Bowl each receive 1.2 percent.
    NFL Tickets

    The NFL controls 25 percent of the tickets, which they sell to television networks, affiliates, charities, VIPs (like celebrities and past Super Bowl stars) and the media.
    Public Tickets

    The NFL offers about 1 percent to the general public. These are distributed via a random drawing, and no tickets are sold by the NFL to ticket agencies.
    Volunteer Tickets

    Every year, the Super Bowl needs volunteers to help with logistics, security, hospitality, transportation and odd jobs. Volunteers get a free ticket to the game but, depending on their role, they may or may not actually get to see any of the action.

    No, unless many more Giants fans than Patriots buy tickets. I think the overwhelming fact is that unless it's your team in the game, you aren't going to spend the money you need to in order to attend. Superbowl audiences are weird. Many people there are corporate types who are there for the "atmosphere" rather than to watch the game. I have attended the Pats last 4 Superbowls. In 2001 I sat in the next to last row in the Superdome beside a guy who bought his ticket outside (for 1/2 face value, no less) and was a Cowboys fan. Just wanted to go to the Superbowl. In Houston (vs. Panthers) there were 4 very pretty girls next to us (models maybe?) who giggled through the first half, left at half time and never came back. In Jacksonville the 4 people beside us were the deputy mayor or something & guests from Jacksonville, who stated openly that they were leaving as soon as Paul McCartney was done. Only in AZ were all the people around me true fans of one team or the other, and I remember that crowd being about 50/50 (Pats/Giants).

    I think the general feeling outside of the fanbase is that most people will be rooting for the Giants, so while I don't think it'll be a home game for them, I do think they will have more fans there rooting for them.

    I think that's a fair guess. A lot of fans tend to dislike the Pats, and the Giants are playing the 'underdog' role again this yr. That generally bodes well for rooting interests.

    Okay - here is the deal. I am one of the luck few to actually have 2 tickets to the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, my team is not in it so I am not going to make the trip to Indy to see it. I will however, allow the person or persons who BEST answer the following question the opportunity to purchase the tickets at MY COST. I am not in this to make money and lets say my cost was VERY reasonable.

    Question:
    In your best words, How would you describe the reason or reasons the the STEELERS are a better team (Historically) than the Patriots.

    BONUS - if you tell me how bad the Ravens SUCK.

    This is not a joke - just looking for Patriot fans who have a open mind on the Steelers as a team. Past, Present and Future.

    Good Luck!

    Yup, it's a very weird vibe. Crowd noise is never a factor, although there's plenty of cheering whenever a team scores.

    They seemed to have good turnouts in GB and SF so I would guess so.

    Not just that, but do they have the entire world on their side?

    Great defensive team had to beat itself for them to make the Super Bowl and amazingly lucky play such as a ball touching a players knee in order for them to win? Check.
    Indianapolis dome? Check.
    Crowd noise button? Check.
    Peyton Manning is now a referee? Check

    This is a trap!!!;)

    On man, but the victory is just going to be that much sweeter won't it?:D

    Personally, I've always respected the Steelers organization and its fans. That team, like the Patriots, has excellent ownership that knows about team building and sustained excellence. I was at Heinz for the AFCCG vs. New England a few years back and was impressed by the passion shown by Pittsburgh fans. One of the loudest stadiums I've ever heard.

    I want your tickets, here are my answers:

    1). Obviously, the Steelers are the better team historically because they've won more Super Bowls than the Patriots have. They have a longer history than New England dating back to 1933 and own one of the league's longest consecutive sellout streaks.

    2). The Ravens suck so bad in terms of character and overall integrity that they've got the New Jersey Jets looking over their shoulder. That's pretty damn bad.

    If I win, please PM me your info.

    The Steelers are historically a better team than the Pats for the following reasons:

    1. They cheated by all taking steroids in an era where nobody cared or tested for them and never got caught, while we cheated by taping some signals that we could have had for free after the game, but an ex-ingrate, no-talent a s s istant coach turned us in to Fuhrer Goodell. Advantage: Steelers.

    2. In the last 10 years the Steelers have beaten us twice during the regular season (2004 and 2011) and beaten their chests mercilessly about it. Of course, those two AFC Championship wins we got in your house (in 2001 and 2004), and the fact that your team didn't even make it to Foxboro this year probably make this one a push.

    3. More recently the Steelers are better because they have a tough guy thug for a QB around whom people have to hide their women, while we have a mamby-pamby pretty boy who shows no toughness. For example, he went on national tv last night and ADMITTED he "sucked" and that his D had to bail him out. WTF?! Your guy, on the other hand would have stayed in there like the hero he is, limped around in between every play, and had the medical staff come out to check him out several times just for good measure! AND he would have given a proper presser about how he fought through his adversity to stay in the game and win it for his team. Advantage: Steelers.

    The Ravens suck because they talk a good game about how tough they are and how great they are on defense, forgetting all the while that they have beaten Brady & Co. exactly once in 6 or 7 tries. Now, admittedly, that was during a playoff game two years ago, but I guess last night gets us back to "even" with the Ravens, at least in their minds.

    Did I win?
