    I get the homefield advantage thing, but that just isn't my personality. I don't like to get rowdy and don't really like being around it.

    I had season tickets 01-03, but I seem to always end up around morons in recent years.

    Now, I can either leave home around 8 AM EST to make sure I don't get caught in traffic and get to my seat with time to spare, spend $200-300, and get home at 9 pm with no clue what happened in the rest of the league...

    or I get up at 9:30, drink coffee and watch OTL, shower, go see my mom, eat a home cooked meal, watch the game with her, take a nap, and have plenty of time to watch the other games, get stuff done, go out with friends, etc.

    But do you really do that every sunday? Part of having tickets is you are committed to a game experience.

    I am so much more calm than I used to be. I'm the guy that's had a Titan fan tell me to sit down and shut up. Luckily that was back in the good days and people told them to go home and watch it on TV (myself included)

    I agree with the premise, I just think if you have a problem with it... and you can afford and are close enough to go to games BUT DON'T... then SHUT THE F UP.....

    You have no right to complain if you can contribute to rowdiness but don't.

    Can anyone give me a quick reply on ...

    "HOW MUCH GENERALLY DOES A TITANS GAME COST, DECENT TIX NOT WAY DOWN LOW ... MID-LEVEL"

    I live in the bay area, but my dad is planning on moving to Tennessee soon (45 minutes outside Nashville) so he wants to look into going to a few home games, not season tix just the occosional game ...

    Are Titan games really unaffordable to go to or what? I thought I remember hearing they are roughly double than Raider games?

    And can u even get a ticket last minute? Or do all the games sell-out the minute they go on sell prior to the season?

    If anyone can help me out - it would greatly be appreciated.

    The only home Titans game I been too was the Tennessee Oilers (last game vs Minnesota back in 97) at Vanderbilt and obviously those were dirt cheap ...

    At the same time I've seen some dumbarse awful stupid fights start over nothing from drunk idiots...

    I just wish people could party hard and have a good time, talk some smack, without feeling like you've got to brawl in front of children and elderly.

    2 biggest factors are opponent and season record. I'm not sure what you mean by unaffordable.

    Lower level against Pittsburg, Balt, or Colts before Manning was released would be at least 100+. Mid level is really club level which is more expensive with massage chairs inside and stuff.

    If the season sucks you can get upper level tickets for really cheap in the Nov/Dec games.



    A few years ago when we were awful and it was snowing heavily... first thing someone said to me was "you are only here if you are season ticket holder'.

    Damn that game was fun and crazy too... everyone standing up and going nuts but probably only 20,000 there lol.

    Oh gotcha thanks for the 4-11.

    I just remember hearing from a friend that it was nearly impossible to get tix if your not a season tix holder, especially last minute - but this is good to know for now.

    Yeah I figured the division games (albet it not anymore since the division sucks) and top teams like pittsburgh and baltimore are tough to get but a late game vs Buffalo, I'm sure stubhub would have a few tickets to find.

    That's wrong, I've seen scalper every game. Price may be high though on those big games. And this year maybe more of a problem than some, because I think if we do even decent those night games are going to be expensive. Plus we open with New England, that will be above face as well.


    Better option, buy an upper level ticket, and hang out in the end zone concessions. You can see the field well from endzone level for about the first 50 yards, plus nowwe have sweet new video/audio.

    I will not be tempted by your video siren.

    I walk those ramps every every game of every year and 2012 will be no exception

    oh yeah thats right, the new video screen - i guess hes moving there at a good time then for the updated stadium, that'l be sweet, LP needed to give it a face-lift even though its still a new stadium, that video screen needed to be bigger, especially if NFL stadiums are going to keep up with TV technology - every team better start doing this.
