For me? Absolutely! This was the first year in a long time that I didn't go to at least 1 Bears game. Cheapest tickets are $80 face, so if you go to a game that $160 (don't want to go alone) + plus Beer ($6 a beer x 6-8 beers = $36-48) + food ($20 average) + tailgate cash (I have a few buddies who are season ticket holders, they always bring beer and food to grill and I usually toss them $10) + Transportation ($10 gas) + Parking ($20) = So in the end that's $268. Don't have that type of cash to blow on 1 day anymore. Note I think alot of my buddies are doing the same, since this was also the first year in a long time I didn't get free tickets! I also do not want to hear about any professional teams crying about loses or revenue. They pay the player mass amounts of money, then kill the fans with prices of tickets, food, beer, parking etc.
