Any one going to NO this weekend that needs a ticket?

My fiancee is really not wanting to go to the game, so now I have an extra ticket (really good seat). 118, Row 16. Apparently she's terrified we are going to be harrassed or to get into a tussle with Ain'ts fans. So now she she decided she wants to hang out and do some planning our wedding while I'm at the game. I paid a pretty penny for the tix, so it will be a little pricey, but I'll take the best, most reasonable offer I can get with such short notice. I've got a great spot behind the Falcons bench.

(You'll have to plug in the section (118) and row (16))

Obviously I'd rather sell to a Falcons Fan than a filthy Ain't, so PM me if you are in the area this weekend and are interested. Sorry it's only 1 ticket, I'll be in the other seat.

So long as you don't mouth off at the Saints fans in the stadium like you do on here, you will be fine. The Superdome is far from a dangerous place.

Or now that I know your seat location, I could forward some of your posts to the boys back home if you'd like so they know where to find you. ;)

Is that a threat Ray? Bring em' on! I bringing my Hick'ry Stick. Just Kidding.

Yeah, I was never worried. it's not like it's Philly (which I'm going to too, I might need a bullet proof vest.). I really enjoy the back and forth and hyping up the rivalry.

My fiancee has heard stories of some of my encounters in the past and was getting nervous about going. She's not a football fan anyway, so I figured I'd just sell the ticket.

"SaintRay" is probably right about 98% of the Saints fans, but there is that moronic and drunken 2% you have to worry about - almost always bandwagon-jumpers who in the lean seasons wouldn’t have been caught dead with a Saints ticket.

To recount one incident: At the end of the 2006 “Katrina Bowl” game, which my wife and I attended, I went into the restroom while my wife waited outside. When I walked out to the passageway I discovered about 5-6 Saints fans harassing my wife (who is no great football fan in any case.) Confronting them, things got somewhat tense, but fortunately nothing further came of it as we left. It was a long walk back to the French Quarter as we had to run the gauntlet of other Saints-fan jerks – being informed the Falcons suck was one of the milder comments we were given. My wife now flat-out refuses to attend any Saints games either in New Orleans or the ATL.

This Sunday’s (Sep. 26) game will be the ninth Falcons-Saints game in the last fifteen years I have attended in New Orleans. In those games I have had drinks and ice-cubes thrown at me, one woman whipped me with her coat, another fan jumped on my back as I was leaving the Superdome, had drunks (I think; some may have been just nuts) try to pick fights with me, and I’ve lost count of the number of comments that go beyond the expected cat-calls. I have to observe that during the Falcons-Saints games I went to in the Saints’ lean seasons I didn’t experience these incidents.

But you know, having the opportunity to be in the Louisiana Superdome in full Falcons regalia and see the Atlanta Falcons triumph over the Saints in their own crib makes it, for me, all worth it.

On a serious note, I used to live on the outskirts of the Philly area a few years back. Eagle fans are dangerous. They will throw beers, batteries, snowballs, iceballs, anything they get their hands on at you if you are openly supporting another team. They will even go after the woman, not just the men. Fist fights are pretty common there as well. Only stadium with a jailhouse inside the joint in the NFL.

Ive been to a ton of eagles games because they are so close to me and always cheered on the falcons when they play, ive never seen any of that going on. Maybe two or three times ive seen a fight but that was between drunks, you might get heckled some but thats about it. It is probably the rowdiest stadium or near the top but ive never once been scared to go and watch a game wearing another teams gear. I will be there this year repin the falcons like i always do.

Yea the Philly fans are real bad. I'm sure you heard the story of some guy at a Phillies making himself vomit on a guy and his kid.

He stuck his finger in his throat, and let it fly.

funny you mention that Ray, a Saints fan took a swing at my friend's girlfriend at the Georgia Dome in 98. I think that was the story that scared my girlfriend, and what caused my wrath towards all things Ain't. Despite my Rivals persona, I'm actually a nice guy.

Like I said, I'm not worried, New Orleans is still the South, most folks will be hospitable. These are pricey seats, so I figure it will be fine. I'd just rather sell them ahead of time, than be the guy in a Falcons Jersey standing outside the gate after kickoff trying to get rid of a ticket.

As far as the Philly game goes, I'm going with 2 Philly fans, they'll have my back. I'm in constant conflict everyday dealing with teamsters working in one of the most crime ridden counties in the country. No Philly fan is going to scare me.

My philly friends despise their own fanbase.

Yes. I would like to buy the ticket. How about face value and a beer or two.

Also,

Huge Falcons Fan.

Let me know

If I was able to buy them at face, I would. I've currently got an offer of $225. But it's from an Ain't, and I'm still taking a slight loss. Apparently the Ain'ts raised the ticket prices to pay off the refs. ;)

$225 is a little steep for me. I will let you know if I change my mind, which is always a good chance.

But if you already have an offer that is too good to pass, go ahead.

Also,

You said you were gonna be in the other seat right? Id hate to buy a ticket and not be next to any Falcons.
