I've never gone to a preseason home game for two reasons:
-Paying full price is absolutely insane to me. I just looked at Stubhub and there are plenty of cheap tickets to be had right now, but still, I wouldn't spend more than $10. You can currently pay $700+ for some Row 1 tickets Friday or you can spend gas money and go to Spartanburg for free on Thursday and get even closer to the players and coaches.
- Even if I had free tickets, I still think I would get more out of watching these games at home on my TV. Preseason football is all about analysis. I'll be hopping in the Huddle chat room Friday night and talking about what I'm seeing along with the other people there. That's a lot easier to do with the game broadcast plus DVR even with the new awesome video boards at the stadium.
So what reasons do you have for going to these preseason games? Unless you just want to tailgate and hang out with your buddies (which I DO get), I don't understand.
