Re: OFFICIAL SAINTS VS. CHIEFS GAMEDAY THREAD

I didnt realise you got stung for full price on preseason games. The soccer games in the UK are normally a little cheaper but the normal season are are getting ridiculous. I have not been to watch my team in years.I live miles away and the price of travel, tickets, hotel anf food when set me back loads.

Sports dont belong to the fans anymore, all the teams care about is the numbers and how tight they can turn the screw before people dont go.

May I assume you missed the first 10 minutes when the chefs starting offense was on the field? They waltzed through our 1st defense like we were playing with 8.

I dunno. I listened to the first half, so no video for me, but I'll watch it tomorrow on DVR.

I'm never looking for much in the pre-season, especially the first game of the pre-season. It sounds like there was some good and some bad. Did anyone really expect much more (or less)?

The problem is that they've turned it as tight as it will go. Fans just can't afford another ticket price increase but the players keep wanting more and more. It's at a saturation point.

Well it's better to finish well than to start well. The Chiefs got, what, like 215 yards total offense in the game. It seems to be our defense overall is going to be quite a bit better than last year. I don't care about ten minutes in a game. I care about the final outcome. Holding a team to such a tiny amount of yards and only 13 points is a good outcome.

Yes, I did. The year we won the Super Bowl, we dominated teams in the preseason. Our offense ran all over everyone's defense and our defense was like a wall. It was easy to tell that team was special and had a chance to go all the way and we did.

The final score of a preseason game is totally meaningless. What you look for is the way your starters play against their starters. The fact that our soon-to-be-cut players beat their soon-to-be-cut players doesn't mean very much.
