Are we being serious? Do we understand what a market is?
The fact that the tickets were expensive in the first place or "sold to corporations" is not what is driving tickets to Stubhub and the NFL Ticket Exchange. The reason that the tickets are showing up on Stubhub is that their actual value - what other people will pay for them - is very, very high. And it just so happens that Jerry has absolutely zero control over whether or not fans choose to sell their tickets for a profit on the internet.
[View Full Quote]It's fun and fashionable to blame things on Jerry, but this one isn't Jerry's fault, as much as some posters may want to criticize him for making the stadium so awesome that people want to travel to visit it (yes, a poster in this thread essentially said just that). This one is our fault - as fans, we sold our tickets because they're worth a lot. It's a tough economy so it's not worth being critical - it just is what it is.
But, uh...I guess I interrupted the Jerry bash party. Continue.
evidently you didnt read the post, because jerry jones stated that he sold the tickets to alot of bears fans, not ticket stub, or some other ticket place, but that Jerry Jones sold the tickets to bears fans. Jerry Jones did this a few years back when bears beat the cowboys at our home stadium. Again, in your own home stadium, you should have most of your teams own fans, not the other way around because jerry jones wanted to make money and sold more tickets to opposing teams.
In relation to that, players see that, with that kind of attitude does that again drift down to some of the players and sending the wrong signal to the players?
Thats the point im trying to make, jerry jones sold tickets to alot of bears fans and he admitted it on media show.
Why, wouldnt you as owner want home field advantage with cowboys fans mostly at your stadium, or is it actually all about the money, not winning championships.
