That's what was making me madder than anything, there were several of those players that should have been warned and then ejected but the refs just let things keep getting out of hand, even after 2 men were taken off the field on backboards. Those refs should be canned.

I like the Seahawks but I was disappointed in the part they played in the way today's game ended. Here's what Globe and Mail columnist Gary Mason said on Twitter. He sums it up well:

Horrible ending to @Seahawks game. Not particularly proud of my team today. Terrible conduct at end of game. Embarrassing. Totally classless

Bennett. :-X

And those Jaguar fans were something too. :-X Hit Tyler Lockett in the back with something for making a touchdown? Really? I was reading a thread on facebook and someone said there were several fans escorted off the premises for throwing stuff that we didn't see on camera. Crazy.

Those Jaguar fans who stepped out of line should never be allowed back in the stadium there. The team needs to have a zero tolerance for anyone throwing stuff. Gheeeeesh . . . it's a game!

According to Vivid Seats, a ticket reselling website, tickets for Sunday’s matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts sold for as little as $2. (Yes, you read that right.) Even the stadium’s best seats — in the lower part of the stadium near the 50-yard-line — were selling for just $29. Tickets at that level typically sell for hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.

That was the ticket scene across the NFL on Sunday. Tickets for the Carolina Panthers game went for a little as $7, while fans could see the Green Bay Packers for as cheap as $12.

Jaguars ban four fans for throwing objects at Seahawks


A number of fans won't be welcome back at EverBank Field after their outbursts on Sunday.

The Jaguars on Monday announced that officials have banned four fans from the stadium for throwing objects towards Seahawks players during the team's Week 14 game.

While no players will be suspended for the brawl that was ignited near the end of Jacksonville's 30-24 win, the four fans will not be allowed to attend future events at the stadium and could have their season tickets revoked after authorities determined five objects, including “plastic cups with ice and liquid, a bag of popcorn and a plastic bottle," were tossed onto the field.

When families have to make a choice between essentials & entertainment. Essentials go to front of the line and the un-essentials are moved way to the back. i.e sports games.... movie night etc... etc

Those are tickets being re sold. Essentially already paid for. Only problem. People do not care to go to the games this year.

^^^From an owner view I guess it depends which brings in biggest part of the revenue those in the stands or the TV deals. Of course the ones really hurting would be concession stands owners & there employees.

The NFL could play in front of empty stadiums, and teams would still make more profits than any other league. The only reason they want people in the stands is for the optics on TV.

NHL teams give away free tickets and still can't get 1/2 full arenas in many cities.

Many of US based NHL teams have terrible attendance (Gary would deny this), Canadian teams are much better with attendance.
