Well It's just sad that they cannot even sellout in a playoff game. Their should be some rule where if you cannot even sellout your playoff game at home you have to forfeit the game. These teams fanbase is just sad.

On a side note somehow the chargers managed to sellout (More like the owner bought all the tickets and gave them away).

The Cardinals game is a sellout.

Also, the Vikings have been granted a final 24-hour extension on the TV blackout deadline.

$165 for second level seating for a team that hasn't made the playoffs in ages? Someones greedy.

I could have got 15 row tickets to the Vikings game yesterday for $110 on ticketmaster.

There were still 6,000 tickets as of Wednesday in Minneapolis. That's truly sad and the fans are terrible and fair weathered. Looks like even the Vikes fans don't think they've got a prayer against the E-A-G-L-E-S, Eagles!

Vikes have been granted an extension. They have until 4:30 ET to sell out tomorrow or the game is blacked out in MN. :rolleyes:

If the owner cannot sell out a home game for a playoff team with a SICK RB, he is NEVER going to get the new stadium he so desperately hopes for.

If the Vikings can get an extension, why don't they just make a rule that for a playoff game, there will be no blackouts? I think because it is the playoffs the blackout rule should not be applicable in January.

Where is the ticket for $165, around midfield or in the end zones? I know from going to Ohio State home games the price also goes up if you sit on the home team's side. Considering it is the playoffs and Arizona has not hosted a playoff game my entire 31-year life, I think true Cardinals fans would be willing to pay $165 for that ticket. But up at Minnesota that would be considered expensive.

There are plenty of people with enough scratch to afford a $165 ticket up in Minny, trust me. Just the fans aren't really "true" fans at all. They are all very pessimistic about this game and don't think they have a chance at all. I do agree! :D

And as you know ,a large part of their fan base comes outside of Minnesota.The Gods would surely be shining on me if i could witness the Broncos running wild on the vikes in the superbowl:D

The $165 ticket was Arizona, I'm sure it cost that cause it's a new stadium but come on. That kind of pricing for a second level seat is outrageous for a team that rarely goes to the playoffs. :fight:
