Brokers apparently don't have much faith, tickets already below 2K. Will drop if Falcons make it. Will likely drop more if Pats make it. Tickets were below face last year on gameday. Good shot at that again this year.
Really want to, but not sure I can make it work. New Orleans is the best place for big events, and that is the only reason I'm considering going, don't want to wait until 2018 for them to host again.
Also, I don't have a lot of money, so if I did, I'd fly into Houston and Megabus it. Flights anywhere in LA are outrageous.
I will be returning from a cruise on Saturday. If the Falcons make it, I'll ask my friend on the Falcons to hook me up...
...so no. I won't be going.

If the Ravens make it I will be going.
Folks in NOLA tell me that for any major event at the SuperDome--Super Bowl, Final Four, BCSCG, whatever--the scalpers can't give away tickets on gameday. Not quite sure why that is (other than the gameday scalpers are idiots who underbid against themselves), and StubHub doesn't necessarily reflect that fact. When I went down there a few years ago for a sold-out Sugar Bowl, they were throwing lower level seats between the 20s at me for <$5. I paid $100 face value to sit on the top of the pile in the end zone.
I'd reckon great Super Bowl tickets could be had for a tiny fraction of the Stubhub price (and even Stubhub will fall like a Ghanaian striker a few days before the game).
Why? It's not a real football game
Typically it sells out and the scalpers charge a premium price on resale. So yes, without a doubt, some people are going.
of course not
Was down there last year for two of them. Final Four is true for the championship game, but that is true at every venue. The Semis was a tough ticket. I don't buy that about the BCSCG, since every one down there (this century) features LSU in it. Last year they were rather expensive.
Sugar Bowl, like all bowl games, is always a bust like that. CFA bowl was sold out, with Clemson just 2 hours away, but people couldn't give them away. Never pay face for a bowl game.

As for getting there, driving >>>>>> flying into Houston and busing the rest of the way. I drove it twice last year, it's not that bad.
eamhokie94: Is your name Nazi in pig Latin?
So are you driving there?
"God no" implied there's no chance in hell I would want to go through the hassle of traveling to a Super Bowl to watch two teams I have no interest in.
But yeah, if I was going, flights were that bad, I would definitely drive.
if you are a Ravens fan you have to make every attempt to go if you ever plan on going to a Superbowl right? Ray's last game, its in N.O. ...
Seriously what is it going to cost me to get in the building?
No. This is jtp's doing. He's kept me around for his bizarre HOF resume.
So spend an insane amount of money to have a 50-50 shot of experiencing the worst possible feeling in sports (or in the Ravens case better than 50-50 per Vegas).
Where do I sign up??
Swamps are best for getting rid of bodies
I can't stop cumming
I TOLD YOU 2 TRIPS TO NEW ORLEANS BACK TO BACK WAS GOING TO BE EXPENSIVE. WOOOOOO
Get the transportation first. That is the first to go. Then worry about a ticket next week.
A quick kayak search for flight from BWI to New Orleans leaving Thursday coming back Monday of Super Bowl week is $1050....yikes.
Anyone looked into hotel prices? I assume Super Bowl week is pretty pricey.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
they are ridiculous. I'd couchsurf / airbnb / stay in Baton Rouge if money is a concern.
Just stay with Nolaeer, I'm sure he'll put you up

Looking to head down to New Orleans for the big game? We're adding a special route between Baltimore and New Orleans Feb 1st & 4th #BALvsSF
Glancing at the map, you could make a pretty awesome beer-and-bbq tour of the South driving to NOLA. Mapqquest says it's only 16 hrs from Baltimore. Flying is for dickbags.
I'm looking into it. My father promised he'd cover a trip for the entire fam after we beat Denver. And then promptly renegged all week long. Trying to get him back on board.
Go away, KA!
As soon as the Giants beat SF last year, I convinced myself to go, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Seeing your team win a Super Bowl is almost unmatched in US sports because of the magnitude of the event. I was in Atlanta when we won our Natty, and that was amazing, but the experience was completely dwarfed by everything that goes into a Super Bowl weekend. I probably still think about that trip once or twice a day. I wasn't even phased when the Giants didn't make the playoffs this year, it's almost like seeing them win a Super Bowl live completed my NFL fan obligation, and everything else is now just for fun.
I will say this though...it's a pretty high risk, high reward decision. I convinced myself when I spent thousands on tickets that "win or lose, doesn't matter, it's the Super Bowl experience that counts!" Nope. Not true. If the Giants had lost that game, I would have been absolutely miserable. Then, and probably still today. Still, I would recommend you take the risk and go. There will be a million forces against you, and a million reasons not to go, but don't let any of them stop you. Just put your head down and don't stop until you're wondering what the fuck you're doing in NOLA.
