Strange observation - A LOT of tickets for sale

39 posts in this topic

I noticed there are a lot of tickets for sale for this Sunday's Wild Card game.
I find this odd considering this is a playoff game. The tickets themselves are not even selling for a whole lot of profit.
I assumed this would be a high demand game with Andrew Luck and the Colts coming to town. There are also Indy Colts fans in this area that moved their allegiance with the team. So there is even a Colts fanbase in this area.

Have we as fans actually gotten to the point in which a Wild Card game does not even carry our attention anymore?

I'd go in a heart beat, but I was laid off of work a month ago. I'll be cheering from my couch.

I received an offer to buy tickets before they went on sale to the public, but this was during our losing streak where we couldn't wrap it up in the AFC North so I thought we were not going to get a home playoff game this year anyway.

I wonder if much changes now that Ray just said this will be his last home game(should he play)?

I will be buying my tickets the day of - if I decide to go.

Last year me and the GF got LL midfield tickets, row 30ish for $175 apiece to the Texans playoff game. No sense in buying them now when they are uber expensive :)

I just scored 1 ticket to go this Sunday from Ticketmaster, section 504. Definitely is the time to search now.

I bet with the news of Ray Lewis retiring will get the last tickets sold. I would if I wasn't living on the other side of the great lake.

Where exactly are you getting this idea that there is "A LOT of tickets for sale"? Because I just checked TicketMaster and I was only able to get individual tickets for the upper level and club level (which, because of the $300+ price, I can see why there's still tickets available for that section).

But, as for getting tickets paired right next to each other? Nope! Not even just two seats, together, resulted in a match. So, unless you're referring to these individually-seated tickets, isn't this just commonplace for there to still be some leftover (single) tickets a couple of days before the game?

Stubhub. There are 20 sets of tickets for sale in one of my sections -549.
That is a LOT compared to other games. I know because I sell tickets to just about every game.

Got mine as soon as they went on sale on Ticketmaster Friday......before I knew just how much the ante was upped with Ray retiring. You can bet individual sellers will get dumb with prices. Glad I was in before the announcement!

Yes, but you know you will not experience even 25% of the emotion of that stadium when he starts doing the Squirrel. This will be a memory I will never forget. That day will forever big a huge part of my life. Going to be huge!!!

Honestly, i think it will be more emotional on TV just because you will see all the cameras up close. That is unless your on the sideline.

Do you go to the games? I'm not being a jerk. I am just wondering.

There is no way to ever replicate the feeling of Ray coming out of the tunnel.
The electricity in the air when the fireworks go off...the stadium starts bouncing...screaming so loudly but you still can't even hear your voice. There is nothing like it...
Nothing like it...at least nothing like I have experienced in my 41 years. ;)

Couldn't agree more. I have ticekts in section 117 right above the tunnel and there is nothing better than the music changing, the crowd going bonkers and Ray coming out of the smoke. I don't care how big, fancy, High def, super surround sound your TV is, there is NOTHING that matches the energy in that stadium. It will be sad to see him go, but I'm surely not going to miss the last time of him coming out of that tunnel!! Let's Go Ravens!!!

I get goosebumps and wet eyes still to this day! And I have been following Ray since he played for my original favorite team- U.

Sunday is going to be quite different my friend.

For me there is no excuse for missing a Ravens home playoff game! I got mine the day the went on sale got a nice, low row upper endzone seat in section 513 Row 4. It was a buyers market on the two resale sites Stub Hub and NFL Ticket Exchange, but since Ray's announcement that this will be his last season, it will become more of a sellers market.

This game will be Ray's last home game unless we wind up playing the Bengals in the AFC Championship. It's Baltimore football history. I went to Rays first game which was also the first game in Ravens history, I'm glad to say I will be there to see his last home game.
