What a joke...they can't sell out a playoff game up there?!??!

I thought the Twin Cities were pretty large...I've only driven through...but damn....a blackout?

Move this team to Toronto or something!

Dang - you would think Philadelphia fans would have snapped them up if there were any left.

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.

maybe vikings fans are still sour from the NFC Championship game 10 years ago..if they couldn't win it then what chance do they have now?

I live in Viking country and most fans are usually pessimistic about the team given all the near championships they've had over their history...

Maybe it's in an area that was hit harder by the economic turn down than others. Playoff tickets or food on the table? Hmmm? Playoffs are an added expense now while the season tickets were sold last summer before the economy went bust.
