    For the low low price of a five hundred dollars for a family of four!

    We've been selling most of our tickets the last few years. I maintain that baseball is the only sport better in person than on the couch.

    Agreed that football is really terrible in person. Worse for me because I live in a place where there's an 80% chance it's either pouring or unbearably hot and humid. FL weather is one of the most overrated things in existence. And why are people at their worst when attending a football game? I blame the tailgates and the alcohol, but you still have to be a group of terrible people to do what I see people do at football games - drunk or no. It's all football too - NFL and CFB.

    Fans are rowdy in the other three sports too, but I only ever feel unsafe or afraid for my family at football games (which I have stopped going to)

    I get more excited about going to Rutt's Hut on the way home from games than actually attending the games these days. Those deep fried hot dogs doe...

    Attending soccer live is wonderful. Especially in South America or Eastern Europe where your life may be in danger as a result.

    Gosh, I must be in the minority because the one time I watched the Pats at Gillette, I had a great time. Not that I didn't run into some drunk assholes (esp at the concessions) but I feel like that's kind of expected for a football game. This isn't tennis or golf FFS

    I'd have to agree that football on tv is more enjoyable for the most part compared to the in game experience at the stadium. Only thing where stadium beats tv is you get to see the whole field and not just the limited tv angle shot.

    I don't mind drunk assholes (I might fit that description meself [​IMG]), it's the nonstop violence that's hard to navigate.

    Although the Dolphins home crowds are so lame that they're about half visitor team fans when it's a division rival (fuck you Pats and Jets). So maybe we get more fights than, say, Seattle home games

    One thing that was esp fun was when the Pats DEF was on the field and we were all yelling, hollering like madmen to "help" them out.

    Plus, I got to see Erin Andrews in person. :embar:

    The 3 best QBs in the AFC East are all on the Pats.

    Can the Texans stop playing the Patriots on prime time tv? Every time it's an embarrassment.

    It's worth noting that, last 15 or so minutes of the Miami game notwithstanding, the Patriots defense has been solid. They've never had to play from behind. Jimmy G has looked very solid, but Jacoby has only had to not lose games.
