Thats is the truth! The NFL is taking the game out of the hands of the middle class more and more. Its becoming a rich mans game by design and I hope Billy Walsh gets to see that game this year. I'm sure it will be an emotional day for him and i wish i could see his reaction!!! GO NINERS!
This really isn't true. It is not that expensive to watch a game. The only games that are expensive are playoff games. It cost just as much if not more to go to a big program college game where the seats are generally metal rails. It cost more to go to circus o lay, it cost way more to see a basketball game, and it is very close to the amount paid to go to a lot of arena events(circus, disney on ice, monster tracks, WWE). My wife spends much more going to concerts than it would to go to a game. It is not a rich mans sport, that is just wrong. These stadiums seat 60K plus, and it's not filled with the rich guys.
Frustrating. Try managing your money better and you'll find out that if your truly middle class than you will have plenty of money to see games. I'm lower middle class with three kids, and me an my wife go to every S.Carolina home game and have to pay for a baby sitter to watch three kids for 5 hours. I've sat everywhere except in the luxary boxes, outside of club seats the upper level section is my favorite and those tickets for pro games generally cost me and my wife less than the tickets for S. Carolina.
