Big Game Or Big Bust? Thousands Of Seats Still Available For The Super Bowl CBS New York
http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/01/28/big-game-may-not-be-such-a-hot-ticket-18000-super-bowl-seats-still-available/

Well I guess that puts to rest on "weather" outdoor Superbowls in places that have four seasons is a good idea. San Diego will gladly host the Superbowl and really everyone wins.

I don't think this has to do with the weather. New York is very expensive and then add a super bowl to it. The common man can not go. They have priced themselves out so bad. The Economy is still in the tank and people just can afford the trip. It has become even more business guys. I saw on stub hub they had a sky box seats they wanted $595,000. That is just stupid.

Price, and the weather have to do with this. During the colder playoff games teams had a hard time selling tickets, and they were teams that always sell out early. Cold weather obviously is deterring fans from coming, and the games like the one between the Eagles and Lions has no place in football.

Maybe people think it's appalling that that they're using cruise ships for hotel space.

The two teams playing are from the West.

Right now, from Seattle to Newark, the ticket is $700 roundtrip. Add in hotel which is roughly about the same price and then the ticket for the game, that's about $2500 just for the game for one person. Factor in food, transportation, spending, etc. costs and this very well could cost $3000 for just one person, for one game from Seattle, and Denver is likely a similar cost.

Or you use that money, buy a nice entertainment set, some drinks and food and watch the game with your buddies and still have $1000 left.

I'm not surprised to an extent.

I wouldn't want to go to New York either. Especially at that price. You'd have to pay me to go.

I think most of this forum said this would be a disaster. It's not Indianapolis with a dome stadium. The Superbowl itself is for... Rich fans with the social status to attend; not the superfans willing to embrace the cold.

At least we'll probably not have to witness this experiment again. What would be really awesome is if the NFL attempted to enforce a local blackout. People would lose it on Goodell.

This is ticket resellers trying to gouge people, so why would anyone care? If there isn't demand, lower your prices.

They're pretty terrible people in general, so I guess what I take from this is they should host the superbowl in Buffalo every year so actual fans can afford to go?

I don't get why people are so happy a cold weather SB failed.

Oh no, they have to play outside in the snow and cold, like it's real football instead of a controlled environment or the middle of a tropical area.

For me, it has nothing to do with weather, but for a lot of fans I'm sure that plays a role. I just don't dont have an interest in going to New York City itself, especially at that price. I'm sure others feel the same way given the apparent lack of demand right now.

Actually, the tickets are already the cheapest they have been in a decade or so. Brokers keep cutting prices, and the public keeps saying "no thanks".

The Super Bowl isn't about the common fan. They probably weren't expecting many of whatever team was playing because it's a huge corporate event. It's cold, expensive, crowded, etc.

I think this is due to the lack of Seattle fans
They probably should move to LA
