Re: NFL way too Hollywood.....

I totally agree B and what's up with the fake audience for Alicia Keyes and like we don't know their fake. Tickets $4,000.00 to $5,000.00, the people who made the NFL (the average fan) damn sure can't afford to go to the game anymore it's like the Oscar's and only the wealthy are invited. I guess the haves found another way to exclude the have nots.

Definitely true. My brother and I got into SB IX with Pittsburg and Minnesota in Tulane Stadium on a pair of tickets my father bought for a total of $6.

I sat in the endzone of SB XV in the Superdome with a ticket I picked up for $25.

I figure the first SB the Saints make it to will be the last SB I'll attend in person.

Re: NFL way too Hollywood.....

media is wrecking pro sports all for the sake of good ratings. rule changes and salaries all have killed it. I would love to see todays football players survive with out TV time outs. More than a few would never make it.

Glad he got to stick to the media and to Tiki. I hope Tiki stays in his house locked up for a year. Eli won't do it, but I'm waiting for Strahan to start ripping Tiki a new one.

I think in the next ten years, ESPN, MTV, and E, are all going to merge into one channel. It will be called BSTV. Ryan Seacrest is as lame as you can possibly get. He wears more make up, than some girls I know.

Re: NFL way too Hollywood.....

The whole thing is a joke. The Super Bowl, like all other big sporting events, is just one big Hollywood showcase. Most could care less about the game, and the ticket prices are just absurd. No, the Super Bowl is not the game for the true fan to even think about going to. The average fan has little to no chance at getting a ticket at face value, and would have to resort to the scalper market.
