Not thrilled about the increase either, BUT (it could be worse):

Detroit Lions raise average ticket price 18.4%

Associated Press - February 27, 2008 6:54 PM ET

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions say higher player salaries forced them to raise their ticket prices by an average of 18.4% for the coming season.

The team says the increase raises the average ticket price by $11.19 to $71.85 for 2008-2009. The Lions say it's the first price increase for most seats since the club moved from the Pontiac Silverdome to Detroit's Ford Field in 2002.

The Lions say the new NFL players contract is the main reason for the increase.

The team says the new average price is very close to last season's NFL average of $71.36.

With this year's (2008) increase, the Texans average ticket price is $60.66 - well below the league average of $68.73 (which is up 7.11%)
