    A sad reality...

    I feel that this is the only way to make me feel better. I, myself have been going to Giants games since I was 8-years old, splitting the games with two of my uncles. When my dad realized how much of a love I had for the sport and for the Giants I starting attending every single home game. I haven't missed a home game in 10 years and unfortunately I now know that my streak will most likely come to an end. I got the dreaded phone call from the person who my father and I get our season tickets from and of course it concerned the PSL's. Luckily our seats were going for $4,000 a piece but unfortunately these tough economic times have hit my family hard. These sundays that we all share together as part of the NFL family are very special to me because it is when I spend the majority of my time with my father. Does the NFL care? No. Does the Giants organization care? No. It all comes down to the almighty dollar and fancy "ammenities" that the Giants think the fans are looking forward to. Do I need a state of the art tailgating area? No. Cushioned seats? No. Waiter service? No. I've been going to Giants games for one reason and one reason only. To watch the New York Football Giants play the greatest game in the world. But now, I will be stuck at home watching the game instead of being apart of the greatest team and greatest game.

    Sorry to hear that. I wish there was something I could do for you and your family... Blame Bush and please never vote for a Bush or anyone like Bush ever again.

    its just sad for all giants fans in the same situation. what they are doing is wrong. they have four sponsors for the stadium and we still have to shell out for it, plus ticket sales. Some people would have to take out loans to pay for these seats, thats absolutely ridiculous.

    ive been fortunate to only been to two game last year.... its too expensive for me to shell out for 1 game a year and i am happy with that.... i am lucky that the giants come to albany for training camp and i can see them 10 ft to 1ft infront of my face signing autographs and practicing.... its free. that is the best as i can get to getting near the players and giants football

    Even if there were less people at the games, which I am pretty sure won't be the case, why would the "prices" go down? There is a waiting list of 30 years now. That list will be reduced to some degree after the PSLs are sorted out and then it will, in all likelihood, bcome dormant as those with PSLs will have the right to sell their PSLs and tickets to whoever will pay the asking price. The number of people in the seats has nothing to do with ticket sales.

    Being a ticket holder since 1980, I can tell you a lot of games don't have a body in every seat yet, every game has been sold out. It really is supply and demand and the demand is strong and that's not likely to change any time soon. For every current ticket holder who can't afford seats in the new stadium, there will be dozens of fans on the list who will crawl over anyone they can to get those seats.

    Those of us who are tickets holders are very lucky. We enjoy something most fans can only dream about. Just imagine how many GIANTS fans there are and then realize, at best, only 80,000 are able to own PSLs and tickets. Sure, some of the tickets belong to corporations but where I sit it's all individuals/families.

    I do feel sorry for fans like the OP. They have been fans for a long time and now they will be priced out of the stadium. In the end, the NFL is a business and that's just the reality of the situation.

    Mind your dopey business. I commented on the guys sad issue using the probable cause of it.. I didn't have along drawn out political conversation with anyone so why the hell would I get banned for using Bush's name twice?
