Why don’t they get a dressing down from someone? It’s bad enough the Broncos wouldn’t sell us any tickets.

Seattle is doing that. I didn't realize that Denver was also.

Check out the game, there’s a sea of orange. Pats fans had to scrounge from eBay and the like because ticket agencies were sold out to Denver weasels.

Over 90% of Sports Authority Field at Mile High is sold on a season ticket basis for Denver Broncos games.

Currently there is a waiting list for Denver Broncos reserved seat season tickets. The current wait is about 7 – 10 years, and the number of people coming off of the waiting list is based on cancellations from year to year.

I read an article that said most of the out of state fans are more anxious to obtain the legal weed than attend the game.

Now for a less biased report:

No Tickets for You! Patriots, 49ers Fans Banned from Buying NFL Playoff Tickets

Now that next week’s NFL playoff schedule is set, tickets are on sale and in high demand. But they’re only available to fans of the home team.

That’s the idea anyway behind the ticket-selling strategy of the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, the two teams that are hosting, respectively, the NFC and AFC Championship games on Sunday, January 19. The host teams have no ironclad means of detecting the allegiance of any particular fan buying tickets to a game, and therefore it’s not entirely possible to only sell to homers. Instead, the official ticket-sales channels stipulate that only customers who have billing addresses in the vicinity of the host team may buy seats for next weekend’s games, which will determine who plays in the Super Bowl.

As the Denver Post explained, tickets for the Broncos-Patriots game at Sports Authority Field in Denver go on sale on Monday via Ticketmaster, but only for fans who live “in the Rocky Mountain states, including Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Montana, South Dakota and Western Kansas.” That means anyone living in Massachusetts, Connecticut, or anywhere other than a few hours’ drive of Denver is essentially banned from purchasing tickets from the main sales outlet.

Likewise, as the San Jose Mercury News reported, the Seahawks announced, “Tickets will be available to fans with a billing address in WA, OR, MT, ID, AK, HI and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta,” and also that “ticket availability is limited and expected to sell quickly.” So if you’re a from the Bay area, home base for diehard 49ers fans, or if your credit card billing address is anywhere other than those listed above, you’re out of luck.

The reason behind the billing code stipulation is pretty obvious: Host teams want their stadiums to be packed with their fans, not those of the visiting squad. Crazed fans are known to travel all over the country and beyond to see their teams compete in playoff games. But it’s embarrassing and beyond annoying for a team to be playing at home and yet not enjoy a full home-field advantage because too many “outsiders” have managed to get hold of tickets. See the Baltimore Ravens fans celebrating last year after beating the Patriots on their home turf in the playoffs last year as a prime example. “One section in the corner, across the way, all you could see was purple,” one Ravens fan said a year ago, when the team from Baltimore went on the road to beat the Patriots and earn a spot in the Super Bowl.

What’s more, teams like the Seahawks have a huge advantage playing at home because their stadiums are so loud, thanks to Seattle fans making noise—and making it all but impossible for visiting teams to function as they’d like. Allowing tens of thousands of 49er fans to take up space in Seattle’s CenturyLink Field could diminish this advantage the Seahawks enjoy at home.

Earlier rounds of the NFL playoffs had no such billing address stipulations because, well, beggars can’t be choosers. Leading up the Wild Card playoff game weekend, three of the four host teams were struggling to sell out stadiums and local fans even faced TV blackouts because of it. NFL franchises weren’t about to limit who could buy tickets; they were happy to take the money of anyone willing to pay up. Due to high demand for the two upcoming playoff games, host teams are in no such position, so they can try to pick and choose who is “worthy” of buying seats.

Patriots and 49ers fans aren’t completely blocked from purchasing tickets, however. They may not be able to buy through Ticketmaster, but they can buy on the secondary market. As the Niners Nation blog explained, “While the Seahawks are blocking California (and other states) residents from purchasing tickets on Ticketmaster, you can still purchase tickets through NFL Ticket Exchange, Stubhub, TiqIQ and other such sites. The cheapest ticket I’ve found is $380, but hopefully some decent deals will slip through.”

It’s not called “Home Field Advantage” for nothing.

Furthermore, I think it’s dumb to want to go to games in unfriendly stadiums, particularly when you can better see the games in the comfort of your own home.

I don’t even go to home games because it’s better on the telly. I do know avid fans who go to as many games as they can and families who’ve attended games for generations and am happy for them. To each his own.

When the Colts were still the Baltimore Colts they played in Memorial Stadium on 33rd Street. There was not enough stadium parking for well attended games let alone sold out games. Many people paid locals to park on their property. The rival fans were ‘sometimes’ charged a bit more to insure the safety of their vehicle while parked. ;)

I got a tarp, spread it out under the back deck and shot the old TV to smithereens. Wrapped it up in the tarp and threw the whole shebang in the dumpster. I still hate the broncos.
