View Full Version : So you've only got $1500...

05-25-2007, 09:03 AM
With Chiefs season tix (and all expenses that go along with it) going up yearly, while the price of big flat-screens is coming down, what would you do with that 1500 bucks? Would you get as much flat screen as you can get(which is quite a bit now), go all HD and drink in the games in the comfort of your own home? OR- would you take the same money and actually go to the games, smell the barbeque, drink $7 beers, pay $20+ for parking, etc?

In this scenario, you can't have both. Just putting you on the edge to see which way you fall.....

i'd go with the tickets. i've already got 51-inch HD.

I was faced with that decision last year. I bought the TV.

I'd go out to Arrowhead and tailgate. If I couldn't find a cheap ticket, I'd run home and fire up the DVR. By 1:00 or so, I'd caught up with the live action.

Yeah, go with the TV. You can always find a ticket or two during the season by mooching off a friend whose uncle's employer had a client cancel their visit. Plus you can use the TV in the offseason.

I'm proud of my TV being too big for the room it's in.

Unless Carl uses those great negotiating tactics he's so well known for with the fans the tv isn't going to mean crap if you live in KC.

Get the TV. Front row seating every week. No crowds to fight, no parking to pay. No $7 beers...

the last time there even was a potential blackout around here, i remember one of the tv stations said they'd buy the remaining tickets to make sure it didn't happen.

If you buy the TV, you're not a REAL Chiefs fan.

I'll tell you I love you, but I don't mean it.
See you in the Pavillion, suckers.

Now stfd and stfu.

TV is the clear winner. You won't have to buy it again next year.

TV I gave up my seats in Section 122.

05-25-2007, 09:55 AM
TV...it includes the admission price to other sporting events as well.


Blackouts suck... I remember listening to the DT 7 sack game on the radio. Seems like so long ago.

i'd normally go for the tv, but i've already got two tv's that i really like. the 51-incher in the living room, and a 30-inch HD for the bedroom.

With the TV you'll get 16 games. With ticks you'll get 8 games.

05-25-2007, 11:45 AM
go with the tube man!

05-25-2007, 11:49 AM
Games. Sure, you can tailgate at home, but will you be able to talk to drunken strangers and rip on opposing fans? To me, there's nothing like going and experiencing the games in person. Especially winter games. The roar of the crowd, high-fiving everyone around you, hearing others yell at the refs as well....

05-25-2007, 11:55 AM
If I lived out there I would buy tickets as soon as they got rid of Mr. Fix the offense Herm. :cuss: This year I would buy a TV.

You should spend that $1500 on tail-removing surgery.

I already made this decision for this year. I got offered LL season tix for face value, but I'm going to buy a new HDTV for the basement instead. I usually end up with free tickets to 3-4 games anyway.

Dang- it's a blowout.

Yep, same with me- TV. Hands down.
