Count me as one of the fans no longer buying season tickets to the football games. It's sad that my children won't get the same experiences I had going to the games with my parents, but they have priced the average family out of going. My couch is really comfortable compared to a metal bench, and my HD TV is top notch. Throw in my surround sound, DVR to skip all the commercials and create my own replays, ability to follow all the games, not just 1, no line at my bathroom, $.25 drinks instead of $6.00 (I could go on and on) and it's hard to justify going to the games. Yes, tailgating was fun, not to mention some of the other, um, "scenery", but even with all that, it's still just no longer worth it to me. I don't think even a winning team will get me back to season tickets.
