$1500 is actually cheaper than I thought they would be. I think I'm used to hearing the price for tickets on the secondary market. Still, if you manage to find yourself at the Superbowl and you have the gall to complain about being cold, STFU.

They were $750 face value in the upper deck. Pretty shitty that they put the team's season ticket holders in the upper deck corners but... capitalism.

Tell us how you really feel.

What a lot of people never even knew (until I brought it to the public's attention) was that the Patriots employed cheating ways (videotaping of run-through) to secure their Super Bowl victory against the St. Louis Rams. Believe me when I tell you, there's still bitterness about that here in the STL.

Rams would have been the 49ers (1980s) of the 2000s if they hadn't been derailed by cheating.

Or Mike Martz incompetence as a head coach... Great offensive coordinator that took advantage of his players talent though.

I needed 75 points from McCown, Forte and Murray tonight... and I got them. Trollolol I sat Brees for McCown two weeks in a row and it paid off two weeks in a row.

LMAO. Rams won one Superbowl, lost another and never made it back to the big game. Maybe Kurt Warner shouldn't throw pick-sixes (and I like the guy). But sure, blame Spygate to make yourself feel better about life...

It amazes me the irrational things sports fans will say without any real evidence. Easier to buy into some conspiracy than accept your opponent was the better team on the field that day. And 12 seasons after the fact too. Just sad.

Holy shit. That takes some guts to do. Glad it worked out for you.

Your views lack verisimilitude. The Rams were demoralized by their defeat because they thought they had been outplayed on the level. If the Super Bowl had been played fair and square, the Rams' confidence would have propelled them to two or three Super Bowl victories in a row. Then probably another one a couple of years later.

KC1 starting in place of RG3 against Atlanta, and probably for the rest of the season. What a circus in D.C.

Did the same thing. I thought I had screwed myself benching Brees when he put up almost 30. But then McCown came through and then some. I don't know what to do this next week in the playoffs now. Brees at the Rams, or McCown (maybe, if Cutler isn't back) at Cleveland. I'm leaning Brees, as he will be inside where he is comfortable. But I don't know.

As with all insights from Link, this one is not just true, it is a fact.

The Rams of that era had a nickname "Greatest Show on Turf". Tautologically and ipso facto, as they were the greatest, there was no way to prevent their success through non-illicit means. Thus; they probably would still be winning into this era.
