My dad is a season ticket holder for the Patriots. My selfish owner who already had the highest ticket prices raised us yet again. Our section went from 125 to 169. That is ridiculous. He has had them since the pats were in Foxboro, i was supposed to take them over. It's a sad time in my household. Hows the pricing in at the Texans games?

The Houston Texans announced their ticket prices for the 2008 season today.

The Texans’ average ticket price in 2008 will be $64.94 per ticket, which is up from $60.66 in 2007. The NFL’s average ticket price in 2007 was $68.33. Prices on more than 8,600 seats will remain unchanged in 2008.

Parking will be increased $5 for each lot, which is the first increase since 2002 for most parking lots. Given the Texans’ ticket price increase (7.05%) versus the league average in 2007 (7.11%), it is anticipated that the Texans will once again be in the bottom third of the NFL in ticket prices.

The Houston Texans celebrated their 60th consecutive sellout at Reliant Stadium against the Jacksonville Jaguars on the last game of the 2007 season, a Houston NFL record. Also, six consecutive seasons is the longest sellout streak of any professional sports team in Houston history. In addition, the Texans have a very attractive 2008 home schedule where they host Baltimore, Cincinnati, Miami, Chicago and Detroit in addition to their divisional rivals.

The Texans are currently accepting applications for the 2008 season ticket priority wait list. To join the Houston Texans' priority wait list, call 866-GOTEXANS or click here.

also

The NFL remains mostly a holdout to binge seating, but there is an option for big spenders.The Houston Texans last year opened the 500-seat Director's Club that offers unlimited food and drinks. Memberships for the 2009 season cost $1,250.

He has had them since the pats were in Foxboro, i was supposed to take them over. It's a sad time in my household. Hows the pricing in at the Texans games?

Can you pitch in so he doesn't lose them? Throw a party and sell jungle juice for 2 bucks a cup or something.......try to find a way to keep them in the family.

Ha, I wish I could do something. I am only sixteen and don't have my license. Maybe I can sell some juice though. The plan was for me and my cousins to get them in a few years but just not enough money in the family.

Typical Indy fan, has to prove how classless he is even when the subject does not warrant it. Seriously, what is wrong with you, to even go there when talking to a 16 year old.

WOW what a complete jerk. You are the exact type of person that Tasering was incented for and deserve it. http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o195/Specnatz/Bonk-TazemeBro.gif

Not really, Sorta sick of trolls coming here and having to give smack talk where it is not wanted or needed. He wants to talk smack, we have a rivalry section for that. Instead he thought he would be funny to be an ass when this young man was talking about losing his season tickets. There was no reason to make the comment he did.

Look here Sparky, first of all, Im not a troll. I dont have many posts here but if you would bother to look at the ones I do have, this would be obvious. Second of all, I didnt realize you were so sensitive about a team that cheats. If the person that I made the comment to doesnt have a problem with it, why do you? Are you the type of person who runs their mouth about anything to anyone, even when you're not directly involved? Seeing that you have over 5,000 posts, my guess would be yes.
