    Right now, the Patriots don't have a single ticket going on stubhub for less than $100...

    Not sure. Didn't really check any away teams sites last year after he became the starter so I don't know what tickets were going for. I know I got tickets in Nashville, TN for $65 each. But that was when Kyle Orton was starting

    I don't miss him at all though. Especially not with all the news drama he is getting in NY now. When you watch Manning winning games with 65-70% completions next year I have a feeling you won't miss him much anymore either.

    You'll notice that on most teams stubhub pages that they will have 4-5 fairly priced games. Then you'll see where they have Manning and the Broncos coming to town and the tickets are more expensive. People are going to want to see Manning in action again this year. So those tickets will cost more.

    I figured that would be the case anyhow, and that we'd be ok as long as we weren't overly vocal, which believe me we wont be. Us British tend to be more reserved than our counterparts across the pond I say 'usually', but then if you went to a soccer match you'd disagree.

    I went to stubhub, and the cheapest tickets were $235 each. Wow! Is that normal? I was expecting to pay more like a hundred bucks for the cheap ones. Whatever the price, I am definitely going. I literally cannot wait

    I've seen plenty of people sitting (or in Boulder, outside the stadium entirely) at games, but I've seen rabid fanbases that stand the entire time too. Montana comes to mind, as does Michigan.

    I've been to Auburn's stadium both in and out of the student section multiple times. Been to Alabama's stadium and Duke's stadium. Duke didn't even have a student section and it was all Noles fans at the game sitting down having a good time.

    Also I've seen plenty of fans on tv sitting regularly at the Big House.

    As for being an away fan - don't start giving it the big un' and you'll be fine. Just use a bit of common sense. When the Broncos score the late winning TD jumping around like a lunatic shouting 'SUCK ON THAT YOU NEW ENGLAND SLAGS' may not go down too well. By all means wear colors though. Just be cool about it...

    I thought the same thing as you when I was in school but that is only because I sat in the student section. The student section in most stadiums are really the only ones who stand at college games. I've been to multiple games since college where I sat nowhere near the student section and everyone sits.

    Except when defense is in 3rd and long of course.

    I went to the playoff game last year.

    We parked and just walked over to some Pats fans with a fire and pretty much had fun from there on. They shared warm food (it was like -15 wind chill) and we hung out all the way till we split off for out seats.

    You will get ribbed probably from how badly we got beat last time, but don't take it personal.

    Some guys might look for a fight (Some drunk dude was trying in the restroom line) but if you just keep a level head you should be fine.

    Some guy was even trying to say Elway sucked, but all the other Pats fans told him to shut up and that he was an idiot.

    I got my tickets off eBay and I've never had a problem using eBay, but if you want the safest route use the ticket websites.

    College ball, on the other hand . . . .

    You were expecting him to refer to you as "chaps" and sign off with a god bless the Queen?

    I'll actually be there for the game too, as my girlfriend's company has a corporate box. Daddy's gon' be drunk. The fans are alright as long as you don't get all up in their collective grill. Just be cool, baby.

    Yup, StubHub is the best place to get them. I actually got tickets for the Stanley Cup final and a bunch of regular season games for the Kings there, as well as baseball and basketball tickets there and it's always the cheapest place to get them.

    I know going to watch a Premiership 'Soccer' match over here is a bit risky, in the sense that if the wrong fan ends up in the wrong place, then you can get in serious trouble. Does anything like this ever happen in the States? Fans seems to mingle fine, and trouble seems a minimum, but could something happen? Should I not wear my Broncos jersey, etc etc?
