Holy crapola~ in addition to your 3K ticket (last minute on Stub Hub) your gonna get a 13.oo brewski, an 8.00 pretzel, and a bag of nuts for 7.oo. want a piece of pie? 10 smackeroos for a thin slice of pepperoni.... I would rather spend that jack on a 2 week Vaca on the beach, and have some $$$$$$$ left over.....what say you ATS?

In addition, the loosing team (each team mate) walks away with a 51K check.....

Mabey this is what's wrong w/ Amurikkah.... do we spend too much on things that just may not really matter???? Bring on "Cold Play" already




Two hours before Super Bowl 50, the cheapest ticket on StubHub was a cool $3,000. And once you get into the stadium, it doesn't get much cheaper.

It'll cost at least $13 to enjoy a cold one at the big game. That's the price for a 16-ounce souvenir can -- or a 20-ounce draft in a souvenir cup -- of Bud Light. If high-end beer is your thing, there are plenty of options at Super Bowl 50: Anchor Steam, Lagunitas IPA and 10 Barrel, among others, all of which cost $15 for a draft. These prices will come as a shock to some Carolina fans used to the $5 beers at Panthers home games this season.

Is the Superbowl today? Huh. And people wonder why our country is in so much trouble. People get more excited about a bunch of men playing with a ball, than what's causing us to go down the drain.
Go Team!! [ whichever they are ]

Great point. However it is easier to hide your head in the sand and forget about problems then to face. I see that as the major issue with people today.

Meh I could care less what someone else spends their money on.

I would never attend such a waste of time so its not a big deal.

Dont want someone to complain about the crap I do with my money. Not like it rolls over into the after-life.

It's still a Lhit Soad of jack..... if we could only incorporate big sports with poli-trix, we may be able to put a dent in the national debt. .....






While The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee has estimated this Sunday's game will bring the state about $500 million, both economic research and the host city's own mayor suggest that number will be quite a bit lower.

But the Super Bowl is a bonanza for some, particularly the National Football League and its owners. On Friday, the average price of a ticket for the game was $10,517.80, according to TiqIQ, which tracks trends in event ticket buying. That makes this Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots the most expensive sporting event since 2010, according to the ticket vending website. The average ticket price for the 2014 game was $3,375.88.

According to a confidential November, 2013 hosting bid document obtained by Minneapolis newspaper The Star-Tribune in 2014, the NFL keeps 100 percent of ticket revenue from the game.

Bread and circuses ,the bigger the circus the bigger the cost.If people want to spend their money on that stuff so be it, personally I think it`s a waste of time and money.

Sports.

I just can't care.

But I hope everyone else who does has a great time. And I hope the tourism benefits my city. :p And I hope those who come from out of town, in addition to attending this sporting event, visit Golden Gate Park (especially the conservatory of flowers, academy of sciences, and the Japanese tea garden!) Ocean beach, Acquatic Park, the hide street pier, ride some historic street cars, and partake of our many "coffee shops" if you catch my drift.


Peace.

I'm waiting for the thread about the halftime show.
Rather conspiracy related or not a fan of what was done.

Going to the Superbowl is not required. It's an opt-in activity for those who have the discretionary income and will to do so. It makes no difference what those folks have to pay for a brew or a pretzel. I can watch it for free from home---if i want to. Or I can catch the score on drudge and skip the TV. Or I can not watch at all. If a few people want to go there and spend that kind of money, I don't think that translates to some sort of philosophical state of the world in general.

Choices: We all make them. Don't begrudge those fans having made theirs to go see it in person.

I used to tell my Father, let's go shoot some hoops or hit some golf balls & have fun dad, you can see the score in the a.m.

On another note, the commercials are so odd this year.

I remember back in the old days, the commercials were the best part

I saw the commercials separately, and I agree. REALLY odd--even Budweiser. I wanted to see the Clydesdales, dammit!!

Not just their backs.

No, California walks away with it.

Thanks to the time each player spent in California and the state's tax law, none of the players are making money off the game.

So no one in that stadium comes out a winner tonight except in accomplishment terms.

Ket, can you elaborate? I don't know much about pro sports, but I thought that the players cashed in; win or lose?

www.forbes.com...

Here you go. Basically, even if he wins, Cam Newton will be almost completely underwater on taxes to California.

ftw.usatoday.com...



Win on Sunday, and Newton will pay California a total of $159,560 in taxes in 2016. Lose, and he will pay $159,200, based on an income reduction of $51,000.

It continues:


The result: Newton will pay California 99.6% of his Super Bowl earnings if the Panthers win. Losing means his effective tax rate will be a whopping 198.8%. Oh yeah, he will also pay the IRS 40.5% on his earnings.


Now, you can argue that Cam certainly makes more than his teammates, but this is just talking about the static team bonuses every player gets just for playing in the game. But the only way that his teammates get much relief is if they make little enough to squeak into a lower bracket.
