    Rams tickets re-selling cheap

    10:25 AM CDT on Thursday, September 25, 2008

    Watch News 4 coverage


    (KMOV) -- News 4 checked with Rams ticket re-sale websites and they showed fans are losing confidence in the team.

    We found fans trying to unload tickets to Sunday’s game for just a few dollars.

    On the ticket resale site, $35 face value tickets are available for as little as $5.

    Officially, Sunday’s game is a sellout, but there will likely be a lot of empty seats.

    Other businesses count on Rams fans.

    The new Lumiere Casino spent millions building a tunnel to the Edward Jones Dome.

    Bars on The Landing have impacted too. Sundeckers says last season two of its biggest Sundays were due to out of town Green Bay and Pittsburgh fans who traveled to St. Louis.

    It's not just the average fan looking to unload tickets, on one website a luxury suite on the 20 yard line was advertised. It accommodates 12, comes with 3 parking passes and is priced at $7,400.

    When I attended the last home game at Anaheim Stadium with the Rams, they were giving away all kinds of stuff....cups....coffee mugs....pennants....seat cushions....foam fingers....all kinds of pins and buttons...

    They just put boxes of the stuff in the corridors just before the game ended torn open with the stuff spilling out.

    Won't be long we'll see the same in St. Louis hopefully.

    Well those tickets will be refunds if the team doesn't start winning.

    Plenty of fans in LA would want tickets.

    Don't have much time for sports fans who only follow sports when their team is winning.

    Oh now there is a good sign for the Rams. What was the saying, "rats deserting a sinking ship" Well if you see the rats packing their bags you know something is up. Chip/FO and all other concerned parties better take note, loss ticket sales= lost revenue. And since you still have operation expenses, salaries & etc the over all value of the Rams declines. Considering the resent banking crisis going on in this country, might be rather difficult getting short term loans--not winning isn't helping there either.

    Perhaps professional considerations will not motivate the team to put a better product on the field, but financial and banking concerns WILL--its called survival instinct

    $5 not bad. 50 yard line seats? I wouldn't mind going. Like visiting the patients at the hospital.

    One of the worst teams in NFL history and the games are still selling out. I applaud the St. Louis fans. Can you blame some of them for not going? It's a beyond terrible team, gas prices are crazy, it's 20 bucks to park at the minimum and about 15 bucks for 1 beer and a hot dog at the game. Our 65 million dollar QB just got benched and our best corner got released. That's lot of money to watch a team get blown out.
