Don't know what you're trying to suggest but Boston is an expensive a$$ town to live in and they have close to the highest priced tickets in the NFL.

Quit bitchin' for the sake of bitchin'!!!

Yep. Face value for this view in Foxboro a couple weeks ago? $100.00

Same seat here would have been just about half of that.



Those seats at the very top of the upper deck were $100, too.

Lol! You kinda made my point. I'm simply saying that as the Texans continue to raise their prices they are slowly moving up the list compared to teams that are in areas where the cost of living is substantially higher then here in Houston. In other words, if the Pats fans pay more well that makes some sense when their cost of living is higher. Pretty simple concept. If we start getting close to them in price then its hardly apples to apples based on cost of living alone. The Texans are now above the average ticket price for the NFL & quickly approaching the $90 mark as the average price. Not necessarily a trend that many want to see nor is not a concern for all. So just because something you feel doesn't effect you doesn't always constitute it as only bitchin for the sake of bitchin. :

Don't remember taking a picture, but I sit in the Bull Pen (field level) for about 60% of what that cost AND I live in Houston that is WAY less in cost of living.

AGAIN, in case you didn't get it (I hate ticket price increases), but relative to those places, this city and the Texans are doing okay.... Not great, but better than most..


PS... Glad it took you nearly an hour to round up stock photos. Impressive!

Hmmmmm...we are going in two different directions. I thought it was a simple concept, but my version of "simple" obviously doesn't apply to all. I'm the one that is impressed...trust me.
