Private suits, unobstructed views (although pretty high up) catered food, drinks, dedicated attendants, etc....
If the food and drinks are catered, what are you spending all the money on?

Someone has to pay the caterer, buy the tickets, rent the suites, buy the booze, pay the attendants (and they expect big tips too). I guess you can buy a package deal that includes all of that stuff but mine have all been A La Carte. I guess if you are one of the guest and not the host, it could be pretty inexpensive.

The local Indian Casino is paying the tab. My mom is a Gold Member and got the tickets comped. Good deal for me

Come on, Saints! Wake up! The 49ers, our division rival, are up 14-0 nearing the end of the first stanza.

I couldn't take it. I just turned the channel to watch the Cowboys (playing Jacksonville in London.)

Lions found a way not to lose again today. Going to have to go 1-6 from here on in to finish with their usual 8-8 record.

I also don't understand fans who root for another team especially when they have no association with that hometown
Good for you burnout. The Chicago Black Hawks were in an awful stretch after they let go of Bobby Hull but have become a great organization under Rocky Wirtz.

Well, they came back and almost did it in OT. I was hoping the ref's would call that Brees OT fumble a forward pass rather than a fumble... That was the game.

Well, lets put it this way, at least you have a real qb and have come a long ways since being called the Aints. Look at it this way you could be a Bears fan.

Does/should the NFL have a mercy rule? 35-0 late in the second quarter. 42-0 at the half.

Love Dan's comment: "And to think the Bear's had two weeks to prepare for the Green Bay Packers" with Coach Dungy sitting next to him with a s__t-eating grin on his face.

So Aaron Rodgers ties the record for most TD passes in a half. Six, shared with Daryle 'The Mad Bomber' (those were different times!) Lamonica who set it in 1969 with the Raiders. Can he throw one more to tie the record of 7 for a game or maybe break it?!
Da poor Bears! Or may the Pooh Bears!

Bears had a bye week to prepare for this slaughter. Trestman is out after one season.

This is his second. It's just so painful it seems like one long nightmare.. Maybe Cutler can go with him, although there are way more problems than him. Thank God I bet the Lions season 8 over also, to get my money back on this stinker of a bet. And to think this summer I thought Bears winning 8 was a lock!

Cutler's not going anywhere. He's half way through the first season of a seven year $126 million contract. The first $54 million is guaranteed over the first 3 years. There's no way they will cut him before the end of the 3rd season. I was in complete shock when I heard about that contract. He has to be very close to the top of the list of most overpaid athletes in any sport.

Watching the Seahawks define the term "power running game" was a beautiful thing to behold. And why can't the damn Arizona Cardinals lose?

Every dog has his day. Cardinals best record since 1948.
