    Why? I love it. A team trying to help its own fans go to the games -- that's the kind of loyalty I want from my team.

    Anything the Ravens want to do to increase the pct of our crowd that's wearing purple, I'm all behind it.

    Seattle pulling out anything to help them win. Pete Carroll probably had a hand in this . They need to win this year and next. Their SB winning team players will want more money after they win the SB. Good for them, bet Carroll doesn't trade his best receiver next year to help another team. LMAO

    This practice has been going on for years. Even the Washington Nationals prohibit sale of tickets to Penn. addresses when they play the Phillies in the regular season. It is great for your home town fans. The Seahawks and Broncos are going to sell out anyway, why not make sure your local fans get to go? Great policy in my opinion.

    Lol.

    Reminds me of when we were coming up with restrictions on Steeler game tickets due to Memorial Stadium being overrun by Steeler fans in the early days.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    If that 12th man were sooooo awesome, why would there be any tickets left after the offered season ticket holders the chance to buy em up????

    There weren't any tickets left. These are extra tickets that are newly released. I have no idea why that's the case or how they found extra seats but that's the story.

    Exactly. This is what you would want your team to do.

    I will say that decisions like this could impact them in the future should the Seahawks return to suckitude and they can't sell tickets...
    Welp, Seattle could always build a museum if the Hawks deteriorate and relocate...

    The funny thing is, the Phillies games at Nats Park were STILL probably 60-70% Phils fans.

    Why would we need to? There's never more than a few thousand available once the season-ticket holders get their shot, and Ravens fans seem to do a pretty good job of snatching those up pretty quick.

    If opposing fans make up 1500-2K of those in attendance (a whopping 2-3%), that's hardly a problem that needs solving. And certainly not worth the negative impression it would leave that we somehow need to take extraordinary measures to protect our "home-field advantage"

    1500-2k too many, IMO.

    I am in the minority but I like it. It just adds fuel to the fire. But it would really suck if the niners won and all the seahawks fans had to watch them celebrate on their turf.

    This is nothing new and Denver is doing it too. The problem is that you have to sell the tickets, which they obviously feel they can. 12th man

    Look at it this way, if Baltimore had a home playoff game against Pitt how would you feel about fans selling their tickets?

    They're basically doing the same thing and it's smart.

    It's probably more than that. Remember.. we are talking playoffs here, which means a lot of people can't afford the price tag and don't get their orders in by the cutoff date. I know for my cheap seats in 509, the playoff bill was always in the $250 range per seat. (for two games) It's not cheap. I'm guessing Seattle might have had more like 7k - 10k seats to unload and were terrified at the prospects of that many 49ers fans gobbling them up.

    Yep. Wish we did it too. Makes me want them to win it all even more.
