Of course, if you’re paying full price for preseason games 2 and 3, when you figure to see at least a half of the actual NFL starters, that’s one thing. If you’re paying full price for preseason game 4, and you’re going to see a healthy dose of Kellen Clemens, you deserve to be mad.
And if you decide you’re going to unload those tickets on the secondary market, well, good luck.
I just now took a peak at StubHub’s offerings for Thursday night, when the Redskins will wrap up their preseason with a home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I counted 319 tickets for sale for $5 or less. Plus a whole, whole, whole lot of tickets for less than $10.
That’s not very much money to go to an NFL game. And it’s a heck of a lot less than the ticket-holders paid.
(No, I don’t think this reflects badly on Redskins fans, or the level of fan interest in this team, or the waiting list, or any of that. It just shows that the fourth preseason game is dumb.)
