What I really find interesting about this though, is there's a real social statement here. For most teams, then, you have to have a certain income level to be considered a supporter, according to your logic. What if you just can't afford the tickets for even a home match? How much are tickets to ManU games?
In the US there are plenty of professional sports teams that cost a lot of money to attend home games. Heck, even a $30 ticket could be a serious luxury to some people.
My season ticket is Â£684 which gives me entry to home games. I can't afford to go to many away games.I earn around Â£26k which is very modest and probably 10 times lower than a lot of guys on here.You find the money if you want to go to the games,I know people who spend every single penny of their disposable income on getting to the games.
I don't have a problem per se with people who don't go to games.
What has got to me is,as I have mentioned more than once,the fans outside the stadium were fantastic.I came on here without any excuses to congratulate Barca and have to read the rantings of a plastic fan.
As I said not going to the game is no crime but watching a repeat of a live semi-final is a piss take.
