If their goal was to drive fans away in droves, then the NFL’s “America is Racist” protests have been wildly successful. Since the barely (if at all) literate thugs who comprise the majority of the NFL began their weekly routine of telling fans, who pay for their ridiculously exorbitant salaries, that they are a bunch of bigoted racists who encourage the indiscriminate murder of innocent Black men, the damage suffered by the league has been incalculable. Fans have burned their jerseys. Corporate sponsors have dropped their advertisements. At every game, thousands of seats remain empty. And now, tickets which used to costs hundreds, even thousands, of dollars can be purchased for less than a 6-pack of Natural Light.
From The Blaze:
According to Vivid Seats, a ticket reselling website, tickets for Sunday’s matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts sold for as little as $2. (Yes, you read that right.) Even the stadium’s best seats — in the lower part of the stadium near the 50-yard-line — were selling for just $29. Tickets at that level typically sell for hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.
That was the ticket scene across the NFL on Sunday. Tickets for the Carolina Panthers game went for a little as $7, while fans could see the Green Bay Packers for as cheap as $12.
Not every team’s tickets are in the basement, but they’re also not at the same level they were just a few years ago. Tickets to see the Dallas Cowboys later this month are going for as little as $10, while tickets for the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the league’s most popular teams, are going for a fraction of what they used to.
As a person who couldn’t stand the NFL before they started calling me a racist, I could not be happier. Well, I suppose that is not entirely true. I would be happier if the NFL went completely out of business, but this is pretty good.
