      Problems logging in?   11/05/2017

      I know a few people are getting logged out too quickly. I don't have the answer to that yet.   However, one change that occurred is that there is no longer a log in name and a separate display name. The upgrade discarded the log in name and now uses the display name. So, to log in:   Username: <display name> Password: <your password>   If you need to contact me to find out what your display name is use: Contact Us  and we can get things sorted out.

Attendance Sunday?

Recommended Posts

Got tickets for this one back in August on Stub Hub for $19.  Thought I gotta pretty sweet deal.  This week I see they're as low as $6!  That's preseason pricing.  What do you think will be the actual in house attendance Sunday? 40-45k. This was my first year without seasons in quite some time.  I must say I do not miss being locked into these meaningless (or close to) December games anymore.  With that said I still look forward to Sunday even if it's a preseason environment.

It’s Family Day and they are favored to win,  but it’s a meh oppponent and it’s supposed to be really cold. I guess I expected a good crowd - still in playoff race.

They were $6 at kickoff this past sunday too. 

 

Around $10 for New Orleans at kickoff as well. 

 

I’ll be sure to mention this when they start shaking me down to renew in January.

Nice replacement for Kids Day, right?

 

I feel like Peguals are sometimes a bit tone deaf to their market.

Yeah, they were good coming for the 1st 3 months but now it’s really pissing them off.

Replacement for Kids day in preseason? They had no 4pm games which is why they didn’t have a specific kids day. They had family oriented stuff for both home games though, it was said. I wasn’t there so not sure.

Russ just shed a tear 

All joking aside all of the people that always want to see Russ gone this is what they should be talking about (not team performance). When the tickets drop to $6 and the fans become apathetic he is in trouble. Wins and losses were never going to impact how he was judged in the building. He will be judged on the strength of the brand.

Keep this in mind when people insist the new stadium be open air because "real football" is played in the elements.

Kids day in preseason doesn't need to be a 4pm game.

This "family day" game isn't at 4pm.

They always have a decent crowd at the kids day games, and Sunday is a bad team playing a really bad team. To me is smells like Russ experimenting to see if the kids day crowd might be willing to fill a few seats that historically go empty in December.

It’s 1pm, which is just as good for Kids day as 4pm. The two preseason games were 7pm.  Your second point could be true. I also think they wanted to have the ice skating rink and so they chose a date that would be applicable to that cold weather.

What happened to people showing up in December when the games mattered?

I think the offense scoring only a FG in their last two home games and being basically elimated from the playoffs has something to do with it

They probably will do so when the games matter.  Most think that though the Bills aren't mathematically eliminated yet, it is inevitable given the unlikeliness of the scenarios required to back into a wildcard spot.

FWIW, they had a hard time in December even back to the Super Bowl years.

Seems like the fans don’t believe in the team. I get it. But that sucks. I was never optimistic they would make the playoffs before the season and I would still be shocked if they made it now, but they certainly have a shot.

 

oddly enough a friend of mine has seats in the Jim Kelly suite but just moved to Ohio and only used two games. He sold his 2 Pats tickets for 700. (Edit - that was before the Saints game)

I have two lower bowl tickets for Sunday that I cannot give away.  So yeah I expect low attendance.

"Real football" is played in places like Pittsburgh and Green Bay

Making a mid December game “family day” for a team that is yet again on the outside looking in. And against an even worse opponent...What could go wrong!?
