I highly doubt it, but would understand. I saved the $1000 it would of cost me for 2 good seats, a few beers, and a pretzel. Thats probably why if it was true.

269 no shows. 82,287 in attendance. 82,566 capacity. I'm sure it was a sold out game....just 269 people couldn't go for whatever reasons.

It's because people from new york and new jersey are incredibly fat and they couldn't squeeze them all in the stadium

Is this because we are all Italian? lol

I saw the same numbers. To me that is pretty much sold out.

It's quite expensive to go to a Giants game these days.

I wouldn't take a stat like that too seriously these days. I think if you checked before the game you'd probably find those available tickets are the ones that are $1500 a pop. Same as when you get an email from the Yankees telling you there's still tickets available for opening day or a playoff game and when you go in there it's only the $1700 ones that are available.

If it didn't sell out the game would not have been broadcast in its home market, per NFL blackout rules. The game sold out. The seats may not have filled. Big difference.

1) Expensive
2) Hard to go to a game on a Wednesday.

I spent $550 to take my brother to a game in the upper deck and all I got was a loss and this lousy scarf ;)

BTW my seats in the fatass(blue) seats for the 2000 NFC Championship game cost $87. The ticket to the 1995 Snowball game cost $35. Now the cheapest seat in the house is $200.

I was at the game last night and I didnt see an empty seat in the house.... Then again I was up in the 300s where its ALWAYS sold out. The seats that dont get sold out are the disgustingly overpriced seats on the sidelines in the 100s

Definitely this! Middle of the week and all that. I think if the game remained on Thursday night every seat would have had a butt or two(according to Hakeemcruz) in it. Most people could have trudged through a Friday half drunk and mad...but asking people to get through two days like that is tough.

In 2001 I was at one of the end zones, about 12 rows up and it was $65. Unfortunately, I only got to see the Giants when the Raiders were scoring in that end zone. I did get to see Jerry Rice and Tim Brown though.

Last i checked, we live in a sluggish economy. Tickets are just too expensive. Its cheaper to watch at home or bar.
