In Philadelphia, the Eagles home game on Saturday night sold out within minutes on Tuesday with tickets going for over $500 apiece on the secondary market in some cases.
That isn't the case everywhere. Actually, that is the only case of sold out tickets for this weekend. ESPN reports the Green Bay Packers have 7,500 tickets still to sell for this weekend. The Indianapolis Colts aren't much better with 5,500 tickets still available. The Cincinnati Bengals have them both beat with over 10,000 tickets they needed to sell. That's over 23,000 unsold tickets for playoff games!
The deadline to sell the tickets is 3:00 pm Thursday afternoon or else the game is blacked out in the home market.
Can you imagine what that would be like? A home playoff game is blacked out because the game did not sell out. I wonder what the league, specifically Roger Goodell, thinks about this.
Eagles fans take a lot of crap from the rest of the league for some of their antics - and some, not all, of it is deserved. But one thing no one can argue (logically) is the passion of the fans. Playoff tickets sold out within minutes in Philadelphia while the other three cities are trying to avoid a black out.
