It's no secret that the NFL attendance numbers are down this season; close to 4% from 2009. That doesn't seem like much on paper, but it is. Is it because of the recession? A lot of people don't think so. The culprit is the NFL itself.

Today, the most expensive sport to see in person is the NFL. There are only 8 home games, which makes buying season tickets a fairly easy commitment compared to the other 3 major sports (NBA, MLB, NHL). We often hear of fans complaining about the high price of NFL tickets and how it is too expensive to go to games, etc. Fans, however, cannot point the finger at the NFL if they're unable to afford tickets to see their favorite team in person.

Our staff made the mistake of going to the Buffalo Bills - vs. Cincinnati Bengals game on Sunday November 21st, 2010 at Paul Brown Stadium. You don't need a recap. The Bengals blew a huge first half lead and lets just say that the Bengals fan base were not that surprised.

The Miami Dolphins game (10-31-2010) was our staff's first game at Paul Brown Stadium for the 2010 season. Our seats were in section 131, row 11 and paid $160 for two tickets.

In all honesty, this was the game that inspired me to create From This Seat. After paying a handsome amount for 9th row/end zone playoff tickets (Section 152, Row 9) I was extremely disappointed to have the field goal post obstructing my view.
