    One broker is saying they will guarantee your money back if your team doesn't make it.

    Interesting.

    Yup, I've seen that on e-bay in several ads.
    Most of those have alot of bids already, So I'll assume that alot of those bids are people whos teams are eliminated or are going to be eliminated.

    So if that's the case, then you could be throwing up a bid that is essentially too high right now because previous bids are no longer really valid.

    Sorry, but it drives me fucking NUTS that "like" is now 50% of the average American's vocabulary. You can kick me next time you see me.

    Seriously, good point. If I already had tickets and won the lottery I would buy them and sell them to good Ravens fans at a very fair price.
    Wherw's that middle finger emoticon at?

    Seriously though, is there some day of cut off we should no as PSL holders that if we haven't heard by that day then we weren't picked?

    I really have no idea how that bit works other then it's a lottery scenario weighted heavier to club level and suite holders.

    No idea when the lottery is held or how we get notified.

    Do you know if Cole is even going to handle tickets for the Super Bowl? He is a hustler, but getting ahold of a block of tickets for that game may require magic.

    btw: the 3G's estimate was based on buying everything for yourself. Buying a package deal may cost closer to $4,000 to $5,000.

    Re: FYI - air fares to Super Bowl

    I plan on driving since I'm taking Danny.

    I'm 90 percent sure that face value is $800 a piece.

    Here are some sites to look for tickets:
    www.compareticketsites.com
    Ebay.com
    Stubhub.com
    Razorgator.com

    BTW, if anyone gets chosen in the lottery and you cannot go OR you have a connection for "reasonably" priced tickets, please let me know (fdgrau @ yahoo . com).

    IIRC for SB XXXV, what I heard was there were about 5,000 - 10,000 or so tickets available to Ravens fans. The lottery weighting was something like 1:1 for suite holders, 5:1 for clubs, and over 10:1 for general admission.

    Obviously, we all want to hit the lottery and obtain face value tickets.

    I actually won a pair of tickets in the league-wide lottery for SB XXXVI in New Orleans. The face value of the tickets was $325. Since Grbac, Brookins, Travis Taylor etc did not take us to the Promised Land, I sold the tickets, over my wife's objections. I got $1,500 apiece, which was in the brokers' range. I subsequently saw on message boards that the street value that year was below $1000, with several claiming they bought them at face value outside the Superdome. Makes me think that SB XXXV may have been an aberration, due to all the NY Giants fans driving up demand.

    Assuming that I don't win in the Ravens lottery and that brokers tickets are unreasonably high, I will go to Tampa to see what I can score down there.

    I'll be doing the same. My worry is spending $1000+ and then finding at the gate it was counterfeit. I wonder of there are any ways to reduce that risk?

    I also think it is wrong to give suite owners and Club level owners better chances in the lottery. By doing that you are basically telling about 90% of the PSL owners you are secondary. Of course I have been called a socialist before but this is a classic example of why I root for the common man.

    It's a legitimate concern. My thought was to get the driver's license number and fingerprints of the person selling. If he refuses, it's a con.

    As to the weighted lottery, I disagree with you. Fans who fork over $300 to $700 a seat should take precedence over those who pay $50 -$100 a seat. The premium seats are what Baltimore had to offer, which Cleveland could not -- they are the reason we have a team, which is financially successful.

    I would suggest the 90% or whatever it is that are being penalized by purchasing pedestrian PSLs are more vital to the success of the organization than the premiums seats owners as a group. Certainly much more than the club levels. I think it makes an unfortunate statement when the importance of a fan is measured by their monetary outley.

    The argument that it is a business and that is just how it is is why the greatest Colt quarterback ever could very well be Peyton someday. We will just have to agree to diagree on this on.

    Just out of curiousity, I wonder if there was ever anything printed in the original PSL contracts that put that weighted ratio out there or if it was something they arbitrarily came up with when they realized we were going to SB 35? If I signed the contract which specifically stated that without reading it then that is most certainly on me. If not, then I am burning my season tickets next year in protest....Not!

    Re: FYI - air fares to Super Bowl

    Just got my flight to Orlando and decent priced room in Lakeland, just outside of Tampa. Thank God for Rapid Rewards and HHonors points!

    Chances are I wont hit the lottery, but it never hurst to plan. If I do not make it to Tampa, I am already booked to be in Baltimore for Super Bowl weekend -- win win!

    I hesitate at asking this since the last response caused so much controversy, but is anyone up for a social downtown? My girlfriend and I will be in town for the Fells January Birthday Bar Crawl and I am told Shuckers will have awesome drink and eats prices.
