Whether it's the ticket prices of football; golf; music; concerts; tennis; plays; movies, etc. When hamburgers went over $2.00 back during the Civil War...I promised myself I would never spend over $2 for a hamburger and I never have...

The following short piece was taken from the Albuquerque Jounal, which shows the ticket prices of the NFL teams (National Footaball League) and then I'll add My Two-Cents, for what ever it's worth. (comments/opinions)  The number in (parenthesis) shows the ticket prices for that team as of the date of the article, which is September 19, 2010. 

"What do you make me for?  A fourteen karat sucker?  Stanley Kubrick

The article reads as follows:

"NFL Notes:

 Ticket Prices Up 4.5 Percent;

Giant, Jets Fans Take Hardest Hits;

NEW YORK:  It's costing more to watch the NFL in person this season, especially for the fans of the Giants and Jets. 

The Team Marketing Report said Friday that average ticket prices for LFL games increased 4.5 % this year to $76.47, up from a 3.9 percent hike last season. 

The New York teams had the steppest increases after moving into the New Meadowlands Staduim in East Rutherford, New Jersey.  Jets non-premium tickets went up 31.8% to $114.64 on average, and the Giants rose 26% to 111.69.  New Orleans raised its average 20.5 % to 74.99 after winning the Super Bowl. 

New England's prices stayed flat, but it still had the highest average cost...$117.84.  Dallas is fourthat $110.20 also with no increase.  Cleveland has the lowest average ticket price at $54.51, a drop of 0.3%.  Twenty one of the 32 teams kept their average ticket cost the same or lowered it.  Among premium seats, the Patriots also were filrst at $566.67."


Reminder;  Cost per ticket in (parenthesis).  

#1 on the Greed Scale:  New England Patriots; ($117.84)  For a family of four, it will cost you $471.84 for an afternoon of watching greedy over-paid millionaires with an attitude problem!

"It's morally wrong to allow a sucker to keep his or her money."  W.C. Fields

The National Football League should change its name to the National Greed Association.  Now, you can view these crybabies in wide screen...WOW...and you can see the greedy owners, too...all at one time! 

All these ticket prices are obscene, as far as I'm concerned, and I would never pay for a ticket.  I'd rather find something else to do, etc. 

The American Dream?  (Housing)  Greed is good!

Food service industry - Greed is good...yum, yum!

Burger joints; Greed is good!

Golf: Greed is good! 

Vehicle sales/repairs: Greed is good!

Basketball:  Greed is good! 

Music concerts; Greed is good!

Airlines:  Greed is good! 

Banking industry; Greed is good!

Medical; Greed is good!

Insurance industry; Greed is good!

Retail industry; Greed is good! 

Hotel/motel; Greed is good! 

Service industry; Greed is good! 

Education; Greed is good! 

If I left anybody out...Greed is Good! 

"There's a sucker born every minute."  P.T. Barnum

There's a sucker born every minute, who pays all these obscene prices for goods, services, sporting events and entertainment. 

It doesn't take a rocket scientist, to know that we all live in the Age of Greed and Selfishness!
