    Hey, man, this isn't P&R: If you want to talk about election donations, take it somewhere else.
    Oh, valid point. I thought you meant all starters, you should take the time to be more descriptive, don't be shy. Jaded

    I don't know, that picture the other day showed a LOT less than 60k. But, the picture could have been taken at any time also.

    It most likely was but they sold 60,000+. I don't think he cares how many are there yet.

    You are mistaken. Not paid. Distributed. There is a huge difference

    The NFL Is Seriously Concerned With Empty Stadiums

    Week 1 of the NFL season had plenty of important stories worth following, but maybe the most entertaining was the mostly empty stadiums in Los Angeles and Santa Clara. Both the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers had sparse crowds for their home openers, and that has not gone unnoticed by the NFL.

    Wait, so you're saying the defending SB Champs had better Opening Day attendance than a 4-12 squad that hasn't played a home game in 22 years? Seems iffy.

    Defending SB champs had different uniforms in 2000.

    That was 99. Warners first regular season game.

    More from article.




    And we haven’t even gotten to the Los Angeles Chargers, who haven’t even been able to sellout a 27,000-seat stadium. No one wanted the Chargers in Los Angeles, and it has shown so far. Dean Spanos and his family have consistently claimed they are pleased with ticket sales and “excited” about what’s happened with the franchise in LA, but look at the following picture for the team’s first ever official game in Los Angeles:


    Empty stadiums are a huge deal to the NFL. Yes, the league makes its money off of TV contracts, but when fans aren’t at games it has a detrimental impact on the product. It sends the message that games are boring, uninteresting and that people don’t want to have anything to do with them in person. That kind of message hurts the product as a whole.

    Not to mention, players don’t want to play in empty stadiums, so those franchises will suffer when it comes time to lure free agents. That could lead to some teams being buried at the bottom of the league year after year and creating a cycle that leaves fans even less incentive to show up.

    This is a major problem for the NFL. Maybe owners around the league will finally realize that their big, bold stadium and relocation plans should actually have more thought attached to them.

    L. A. has a lot more people than STL and some of them even speak English. The rest believe football is played by guys in shorts flopping around like shooting victims the second an opponent touches them.
    I miss the old Mile High Stadium.

    Uh huh: Mexico City holds the NFLs single-game attendance record: 112,376 for a 1994 preseason game between the Cowboys and Oilers. The Cowboys and Giants set the regular season record in 2009 with 105,121, breaking the previous regular season record of 103,467 set in 1995 by the '9ers and Cardinals in—Mexico City.
