Away Game Roll Call 2019

Recommended Posts

Away game at Foxboro in Dec.  Scored great lower level seats from a friend who's a Patriots season ticket holder.  He says I can have these seats every year.  And I'll also be at the preseason Carolina game.

Anywhere near Fredericksburg?  I’m thinking of going to a game and can’t decide if I wanna do richmond or DC?

We are in Ashland. RIC has direct flights to BNA (Nashville) which is great but only on Fri & Mon but that is perfect for the game. In Fburg you are closer to DC airports but direct flights to BNA look pricier than the discount carrier, Allegiant, in RIC. We usually fly to Bills games in BUF through IAD because there is a 7:45 pm flight on Sun which leaves plenty of time to get to the airport after a game.

In for Nashville, definite.

In for Giants, most likely.

 

Originally was planning for the Jets game at Metlife but it being the first game of the season kind of killed that for me.  I hate Jets fans enough when they're hopeless, but at the beginning of the year they're downright insufferable.

Nashville. Hotel reserved, blocked off a group tickets through the Titans ticket office. That's going to be a popular trip

How did you block off tickets? We are looking for some as well. What hotels/areas are the Bills fans staying?

There are $53 tickets available right now on the Titans website in the upper corner, where I would like to be.

I have more than 15 so I called the Titans ticket office for a group sale. Ticketmaster only allowed 4 at a time. Link is below, you can call, email or fill out the form and they'll get back to you

I’m very disappointed in many of my fellow members for saying they are going to New York for jets and giants games! No your going to New Jersey!

Just booked my room near Vandy in Nashville. Easy to walk to places, short Uber into town or the Gulch. Cheaper (and smarter!) than driving downtown and parking.

My group is also staying near the Vandy campus. It was considerably cheaper than anything directly downtown

Absolutely! Despite several big, beautiful new hotels opening, downtown is still VERY pricey. Near Vandy has plenty of cool places to eat and drink that you can walk to. Uber is only $10-15 into town as long as you don’t get surge pricing. Downtown parking is often around $12 for just the first hour. What a deal! 

 

Down around Broadway is cool for a while, but I prefer some of the surrounding areas unless you crave just the country music scene. Nashville is so much more. I really like that town. Try the Gulch and 12 South and some of the other cool areas. 

 

 

My wife will be there during draft weekend (for a funeral, unfortunately), and she said the decent places were around $500/night! I hear they are expecting around 100k people.

Our group was really looking forward to doing Nashville this year but due to scheduling conflicts that one won't work out so we are going to do Pittsburgh instead(I'm just praying the Bills aren't out of the playoff race by then).

Depends where they’re flying into or staying, I suppose.  In other words, the same scam the Jests and Giants have been pulling on the rest of us for years.  Let’s just hope Andrew Cuomo doesn’t demand the Bills be rebranded the ‘New York Bills’, since they are New York State’s only NFL team.

Sort of like when he pulled that ish with UB? I think they were called state university of New York at Buffalo!

Anyone have luck with a decent airfare from Buffalo to Nashville.  Prices seem to be crazy, and the alternative is an 11 hour drive.  Really want to attend, but not looking to break the bank, or take a long drive for a 3 or 4 day trip.

How would driving to Cleveland and flying from there OR driving to Pittsburgh and flying from there?

Technically for me the games in NJ are home games.  Will try to make both.

I'll be in Nashville. What's the best strategy on getting tickets?  Do you guys usually buy early (Titans have single game tickets available in the upper deck as someone mentioned above) or wait til closer to the date via the online broker sites hoping for price drops on lower bowl seats?

No direct flights so that blows. That' why we changed the trip to Cleveland instead

Still under $400 out of Rochester, one-connection - doesn't seem to bad.

Info for others for game weekend 10/5-7. I found a nice Airbnb private apt for 2 near Vandy for game weekend at $199/nite.

That’s a great location, BTW.  Non-surge Uber pricing is only about $10 into town, cheaper than parking. There are also plenty of bars and restaurants within an easy walk. 

 

I’m staying at one of the Hampton Inn’s there and paid more than that for a hotel room.
