The NFL is still suffering the backlash of players refusing to stand for the National Anthem and millions of upset fans are holding true to their patriotic values by boycotting the NFL games until players show respect and stand.
The ensuing result of their stubbornness is ticket prices dropping to new, dramatic lows. If you wanted to check out the Indianapolis Colts vs. Buffalo Bills game at New Era Field this Sunday, you could have scored a ticket for $2.
Yes, you read that correctly. Just two measly dollars a seat.
Keep kneeling gentlemen – soon the seats will be free.
The Blaze reports:
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. […]
Not every team’s tickets are in the basement, but they’re also not at the same level they were just a few years ago. Tickets to see the Dallas Cowboys later this month are going for as little as $10, while tickets for the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the league’s most popular teams, are going for a fraction of what they used to.
Embarrassingly, as a New York newspaper noted, tickets for a college hockey game in the Buffalo area went for $28 this weekend — a whopping 1,400 percent more expensive than the Bill’s cheapest tickets.
Tickets are already going for cheap in week 15.
“Thursday night Broncos-Colts game are available for $5. No snow expected,” tweeted Siciliano Uno.

“Meanwhile, Fox Sports was forced to advertise to find “fans” — or even actors — to fill seats for its pre-game broadcast for the L.A. Rams game, something that is ordinarily easy to do,” reported Warner Todd Huston of Breitbart News.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the casting call asked actors to “Come out, bring your spirit, your best NFL gear & join us for NFL on Fox this Sunday!”
Not only are tickets going for cheap at some games, but this Thursday’s television ratings show yet another decline, says The Hollywood Reporter. The overnight score shows a 14 percent drop compared to last season. – The Gateway Pundit

But Cincinnati may have fared better than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond Stadium when the Detroit Lions came to town to beat the Bucs 24-21. There seemed like more empty red seats than fans in Florida, Breitbart reports.
