Wow! I was thinking the same thing the other day when it was 20,000 tickets. Gonna be a home crowd for Philly.

Yeah I read that on FoxSports this morning as well....I could not believe a city would not support their team in the playoffs....Arizona is having trouble too. :confused:

Per ProFootballTalk.com;

"The Vikings have until 4:30 p.m. EST on Friday, January 2 to move the remaining 11,000 seats. Only 9,000 tickets have been sold since Monday morning.

The Cardinals must sell 5,600 tickets by 4:30 p.m. EST on Thursday, January 1.

The Cards host the Falcons on Saturday, and the Vikings host the Eagles on Sunday."

Almost sounds like Ari and Minn fans think their team will lose.

Cardinals got another extention per PFT:

'With the deadline for selling out their home stadium already moved from 72 hours to 48 hours and with a lot of tickets still left when the 48-hour deadline came, the Arizona Cardinals have received an unusual second extension.

The Cardinals now have until 24 hours prior to the Saturday kickoff of their game against the Falcons to move enough tickets to allow the wild-card contest to be televised in the Phoenix area.

As of 4:30 p.m. EST on Thursday, 3,700 tickets still remained.

“Based on the activity we’ve seen over the last couple days and particularly in the last 24 hours we’re very optimistic that this extension will get us where we need to be,” said Cardinals executive vice president/COO Ron Minegar (which might or might not rhyme with “vinegar”).

Meanwhile, a store named “Leslie’s Pool Supplies” has assisted the cause by purchasing a “large block” of tickets, and offering fans who buy $100 or more in pool supplies two free tickets to the game.

We didn’t make that last part up.

We swear.'

How pathetic....you should have to forfeit your spot in the playoffs if you can't sell out your home game.

I can understand Arizona more than Minnesota. Minnesota is football country.....what the hell else are they going to do on those cold winter days.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
