Steven Jackson's Wet Dream

Could it be possible that Bill Bidwell of all people could provide Steven Jackson with a wet dream? Mike Tulumello of the East Valley Tribune reported how the Arizona Cardinals came up with an idea on how to keep their fans from selling their Cardinal tickets to opposing teams fans. While this plan could possibly work, it is worth noting that Bill Bidwell the cheapest owner in the history of professional football is once again screwing his fans at the same time. Sure if you FORCE your fans to buy a single game Dallas Cowboys ticket along with a meaningless preseason game you may remove some Cowboys fans from your stadium. However you are also forcing your normal Joe who only was going to have money to go to one single game, or take his family to one single game out of the market. In addition smart fans will purchase the Cowboys and preseason ticket and then attempt to sell the preseason ticket on any number of ticket selling sites that are out there. So what is your opinion? Is Bill Bidwell the biggest cheapskate on the planet, or should Steven Jackson run this idea up to the Rams PR department?

The Arizona Cardinals are trying to “protect the nest.” This means they’d like University of Phoenix Stadium to continue to sell out, and to do so with as few opposing fans as possible.

In the past two seasons, there was little concern about this since the team sold out every home game. But with ticket sales a bit slower as the third season approaches, the Cardinals are requiring fans who want to buy tickets to the Dallas game on Oct. 12 to also buy tickets for the Aug. 7 exhibition opener vs. New Orleans. Cardinals fans have “created a decisive home-field advantage” the past two years, and the team wants to keep it that way by discouraging single-game ticket sales to Dallas Cowboys fans, team spokesman Mark Dalton said.

“Our goal is to have as many Cardinal fans in the stadium as possible,” Dalton said.

In terms of overall ticket sales, “We’re a little slower than we were at this point” last year, Dalton said, citing the slowing economy. Dalton estimated about 58,000 season tickets have been sold. Ideally, the Cardinals would like to sell about 60,000 season tickets and hold back 3,000 or so to sell for individual games.

“If we don’t get to that threshold, then there will be a few more individual single-game tickets available,” Dalton said.
