Hell, I paid $600 each when I went. Granted they were not the greatest seats in the world but it got me in the building.

yup...13 years ago in the nosebleeds....u werent getting into the 300 section for less than 2k sunday......and last years market was much more crazier

 

it is what it is.....

 

and steve...you have to remember...there is no primary market...only way youre getting one 1st hand is to buy a crazy package from the nfl that includes a bunch of other tickets to events...and they are much more expensive....trust me...i talked to people around me...and watched the market after i purchased...for where i sat i got a good deal

Always fun to go to a game, let alone the Superbowl. But to be so close as to feel like you're part of the action must have been pretty awesome. 

it was very cool.....as i mentioned the pats scoring all happened in my endzone and even the mccourty/cooks breakup.....it was intense

Guess I hadn't thought about there not being a primary market, I thought each team got some tickets to sell to their fans, usually season ticket holders.  I guess this is what happens when they turn a sporting event into a spectacle including the "biggest concert of the year" (according to CBS hype).

steve...i know the patriots have a "lottery" for season ticket holders...they are given tickets but only a limited amount and its a lottery system for only the season ticket holders....ive had season tickets since the early 90s and have not won once lol....id imagine thats how most teams run it...im sure some guys win it and decide to sell...but im guessing you arent gettng what they paid for it unless its a close personal friend

Wow and with all the Super Bowls the Pats have been to not one time getting the luck of the draw. I see why you had to go secondary market.
