I think about it every season. I'm a paycheck-to-paycheck kind of guy, and that money could do things for me in other areas that I have a passion for. Heck, $600 buys some nice music gear, another guitar, a really nice paintball gun, whatever.

Believe me, I work hard for my paycheck and know that money trees don't exist. However, I weigh the benefit that I get in my life against the costs. Not just being a fanatic for a fledgling football team, but it's also a big social event that brings my closest friends together for a day, along with many great friends that I've made because we tailgate and attend games.

Fortunately, we do have a franchise that gives the little guy a chance to go to games and even buy season tickets. My section does not require a PSL purchase, for one, and the face value of the 500's endzone were $45 this season. The face value of 600 seats are less than $40/game, which is far less than most concerts or even dinners on the town these days. It is just a matter of prioritizing your disposable income, and being a Texans fanatic is important enough to me and others that we do what we have to do to afford the tickets. It is not with a nonchalant attitude, though, because it is a forward thinking choice to make for many of us to do without in other entertainment areas of our lives.

My wife and I will be back. We love the team. We love tailgating and going to the games. We love to hang out with our friends. An extra $90 isn't going to scare us away.

My bill is $260 more than last year.

Two tickets, two parking passes.

I don't have too much of an issue with game ticket cost. That's what it's all about. The parking cost is what I have issue with.

Couldn't agree more. I have no issue with the ticket increase - It's the parking I find hard to swallow. Where's the extra $50 worth of benefit? At least give us more time in the lots.

PS...My increase was the same - $260 for 2 tickets & 2 passes.

Hell, if they're going to raise parking prices they better be able to fix the way they direct people into the lot. My dad and I don't tailgate so we get to the games roughly an hour before kickoff when the lot already has quite a number of cars and the employees telling people where to turn to park is always disorganized. I don't understand why they tell people to turn into a lane that already has tons of tents setup instead of just removing cones from a lane that is currently blocked off to allow people to park easier. It's frustrating as hell at times. I don't know if it's this way in other lots, but the Orange Lot usually sucks to park in.

DB, put a little something extra aside because i have a funny feeling in the next 2 years all the seats in reliant stadium will require a psl.

I am seriously considering trying to move back to the Yellow Lot. I don't have anywhere near the hassle with parking attendants, and if I have to park next to the 610 access road in the Blue Lot, then I can do better in the yellow and save $100.

The only downer over there (and if you used to park there you probably already know this) is that the Yellow Lot is very very slow to clear out after games if you're not the type that hangs around for Tailgate II. Way worse then Blue from my experience. That said, I imagine the demand for Yellow will go up this season for the simple reason of cost.

yep. If you try to get out of yellow lot right after the game, be prepared to sit in your car for awhile. They are trying to cram a five pound bologna into a two pound sack by only having one exit onto Main Street.

Definitely plan on hanging out after the game of if you go with Yellow passes if you want to avoid traffic.

We may be more towards the bottom of that list, but what I would like to see is, a list of % of ticket price increases per team over the last 6 / 7 years.

My tickets and parking have escalated ~~ 26%+ since 2002. Now, is that middle of the road, or is that high..?
