I WON THE LOTTERY! but i actually didnt. my cousin has 19 tickets under his name, including mine. his account has been open since 2005. and they offered us 2 freakin super bowl tickets. 2 out of 19 is not a good ratio. i was expecting at lest 4 or maybe 6 tickets, NOT 2. thats got to be one of the top 3 biggest loads of cow manure i have ever seen in my life.

Re: Could not be more disappointed in the Saints.....

Yeah I'm disappointed that I didn't win the lottery but I blame the NFL for only giving 17% of the tickets to the teams playing. The Saints have to take care of their sponsors also. Sure they make close to $2000 off of me with tickets, parking and concessions but think about the people in the suites that spend $10-$50 thousand a year or the sponsors. They owe them too. Like I said I'm disappointed I didn't get picked but that's just the luck of the draw and as usual my luck sucks. Don't blame the Saints, blame the corporate NFL.

It's a social event. Watch the game on TV, celebrate in the Quarter.

Last time I checked the whole organization is called the Saints, not just the players.

HELLO?

Some will be sold most likely for a very high price; And what left got put in a lottery off, this is how all teams do, Saints didn't do anything dishonest or low down, it appears The League throws some tickets at the winning teams and they do what they can to please as many people as possible.. Obviously you can't please everybody.
They got almost 13,000. Dolphin Stadium (or whatever the name is at this moment) holds 74,000. The teams participating get 17.5% or about 13,000. I actually have seen one site that said they got closer to 14,000 based on the capacity being higher. They could give every player, worker and janitor at the Saints facility 10 tickets and that would probably be about 3,000 tickets. (10 times 300 employees) Then they could give out another 3,000 to whomever, make up a name here. THAT SHOULD LEAVE 7-8,000 tickets for the fans! Where are the other tickets going?

Us too .... maybe even watching it in the Quarter ... let's hook up!

And yeah ... been to a SB also ... back when Montana was playing the Broncos ... I'd never pay for a ticket, that's for sure ... more fun where there's a short line to the john.

Did I say that genius? Someone said that by saying "The Saints" that I was blaming it on the players. I simply responded that the WHOLE ORGANIZATION is called the Saints....not only the players.

Yeah I think you need to disconnect the call because nothing is getting through.
