New Orleans Saints v. Carolina Panthers on the cheap
 

tiqiqWhen you watch tonight’s Divisional battle between two struggling NFL teams, the Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints, you might want to consider the word “cheap”.

 

No, not the players or owners, although critics might assign the descriptive to the latter during a time of frustration when a team is losing.

And, indeed, both the Panthers and the Saints have been losing. 

But, actually, “Cheap” in terms of tickets.  And, let us throw in the word, relatively, so.

As of Monday of this week, according to Jason Lawrence, the Founder and CEO of Tiqiq, a popular event ticket boutique where emblazoned on the company logo, "tickets meet intelligence",  the average price for Saints -Panthers tickets is $127.  Surprisingly, that's the second-cheapest home game for the Panthers, ahead of only their December 14th game against the Buccaneers.”

Would seem to be surprising given the game actually means being top of the heap of a bad bunch of South Divisioners 2014 of the Western Conference of the NFL.  Whichever team wins tonight takes the division lead.  The New Orleans Saints sit at 3-4 while the Panthers are 3-4-1.

Actually, maybe the ticket prices are not so surprising at all.

Lawrence noted that the game is on a Thursday night and traditionally, the weekday night games generally attract a pretty but cheaper price compared to the Sunday gridiron games.

According to Lawrence, the Saints game against 49ers, “is the most expensive game of the year at the Superdome, at an average price of $333.  That price is up 2% from a week ago.”

Below is the Saints five year average price on the secondary market.


2010: $343.91

2011: $267.39

2012: $247.68

2013: $286.96

2014: $221.09

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
