Some of you need to step back from the ledge.  Today’s Cowboys are a product of marketing, not success.  Winning tradition?   In the last 20 years the Falcons have been to four NFC championship games and two Super Bowls.  The Cowboys?  Zero 

That organization has been trading off its ‘70s and early ‘90s successes for decades.  If the Falcons were on the Game of the Week 12 times a year they would also have a nationwide following no matter how bad they sucked

I dont get these arguments. The cowboys fans pay the same for the same tickets without the PSL. 

If you mean the Cowboys fans that are going to the game here, they're more likely to shell out more money for the tickets, since their team only plays here once every few years.  Birds fans paying for PSLs and season tickets, or paying a premium for more than one game per year, are more likely to get priced out, which leads to lower local fan attendance.  Also, other teams like the Cowgirls won multiple Superbowls before requiring PSLs, but PSLs may undermine building a huge following for the Birds.  Win some Superbowls before even thinking about raising the price by 10x to be a season ticket holder.

Winning Superbowls helps, no matter how long ago it was.

Winning tradition you say? 

Only the packers and steelers have had any actual winning recently. 

"Recent" is relative.  If you've won, people tend to believe you can do it again.  If you crap away 2 Superbowls, people tend to be more wait-and-see, and the team can't afford that right now.  But that's more reason to run the d*mn ball with a late lead.

Please keep reason and intelligence out of TATF.   

Looks like you dudes don't understand economics.  Winning creates demand, and Cowgirls fans have a higher demand for the same tickets, and will pay more.  Reason and intelligence staring you all in the face, but carry on.

but it has nothing to do with a psl 

it was the same way in the ga dome.  when dallas, pittsburgh, gb come to town it was always 60/40 if not more.

The PSL raises the price of tickets on the secondary market, because season ticket holders are paying more for those tickets in the first place.  At a certain price, local fans won't pay that price, at least for big matchups like Dallas but possibly other games as well, while fans of those other teams will pay that price.  That leads to even more opposing fans in the stadium.  You'll see way more than 60% Cowgirls fans on Sunday, and this is why.

Our team isn't helping their cause very much I know that.  We have some serious problems right now, coaches & players.

Yea. 

When we dropped the two in a row to Buffalo and Miami I remember watching on TV thinking the stadium looks REALLY bad and once we come back from this road trip 1-2 or 0-3 it's going to be ten times worse.  

It's going to be like the Steelers game in '06.  Probably worse.  Falcons fans are checking out.  You can sense it.

Big time.  I've been at some of the worst games for opposing fans, and most people I used to sit near said they're tired of defending this team.  It's even worse on the road.

I understand what you are saying, but it happens with or without a PSL.  I get that you hate PSls, as do I.

You said it earlier.  These fans have one chance to see their team if they are local to the area.  So they are going to pay more than a local Falcons fan who can pick a "cheaper" game.  It has nothing to do with a psl, they will pay more regardless because this is their one chance to see their team.  If I am a Falcons fan who wants to pick my one game to see a year I will pick the Vikings or TB.  Those teams have a smaller fan base and the demand for tickets will be lower.  Nothing to do with a psl... just economics.

this is nothing new man!  i had season tickets from '92 thru '01 and there were only a couple of seasons in that time that i thought the dome was a legitimate home field advantage.  the '92 season was one of those times--until we started losing, the newness of the dome wore off and midway through the '98 season fans finally started believing in that team.  other than those years--i remember being outnumbered by bucs, steelers, cowboys, saints, colts, niners and panthers' fans yearly.  sunday's game will be just like all of the ones before when the falcons are struggling--all the fans that were wearing falcons jerseys and yelling rise up last year--will dig back in their closets a little further, just past their cubs jerseys and find that old aikman, sanders, smith, irvin, or staubach jersey and say, "i've always been a boys fan."

 

sure you have!

And they won't get that level of fan support with tickets this expensive and PSLs.  These road games at home will be the new normal, thanks to Blank's greed.

I'm truly sorry that you have been priced out of the ability to watch a game live. I don't understand why you are so bitter towards the team and its fans however. Ticket prices are not that much higher on the secondary market than they were in the Dome, so you should still be able to go to a game or two (if you were going before the new stadium was built) and it won't cost you significantly more. Let me know if you are having trouble finding tickets and I will see what I can do. I would like for all true Falcons fans to get the chance to see their team!
