While Eagles Tickets Are More Expensive This Year, The Home Opener Is Cheapest In Four Years

From our friends at TiqIQ.

If there was one positive that resulted in the 12-20 Eagles record over the last two years of Andy Reid’s tenure, it was cheaper prices for Eagles Tickets. Over the last four years, the average price for Eagles tickets at the start of the season dropped from $242 in 2011 to $177 in 2012 and all the way down to $150 in 2012. With a new regime, prices are back up. With the majority of pundits picking the Eagles to repeat as NFC East champs, the average price across the Eagles home games is $220.

While it will cost more to see Nick Foles and crew pursue another NFC East title, for fans looking to get out to Lincoln Financial Field without breaking the bank, this is the weekend to do it. The opening game against the Jaguars is not only the cheapest game of the season, it’s also the cheapest opening game over the last four years…by a lot. Over the last three years, the average price to see the Eagles opening game has been $169, $204 and $261. That makes this years’ average price of $139 47% less expensive than the 2011 opener against the Giants, which was the most expensive. Right now, there are tickets under $80, and thanks to our partners at TiqIQ you can get tickets for even less.

From our friends at TiqIQ:

With an average price on the secondary market of $150, Penn State football tickets at Beaver Stadium hold the 10th spot in TiqIQ’s annual ranking of the 25 college football programs in the country after week one. The 10 spot puts PSU in a position amongst the most in-demand college football tickets in the nation. In 2011, before the program was engulfed in controversy, the average price for a ticket to see the Nittany Lions at Beaver stadium was $187, which was good for 7th in the nation. While Penn State isn’t eyeing the post-season this year, it may not be too far in the future behind the arm of true sophomore Christian Hackenberg. In his first start this season, Hackenberg threw for 454 yards and led Penn State to a hard fought win over UCF. While the secondary market is more active this year than any of the last three, the primary market also has availability. For those willing to commit to an entire season, they’ll be rewarded with an average ticket price of only $40 for each game. That ends up being about $15 cheaper than getting tickets to all the games through the secondary market.

9/6 vs Akron | Avg. Price: $90.76 | Get-in: $28

The lowest-priced home game on the Penn State schedule will also be the team’s opening game at Beaver Stadium against Akron on September 6. The average price for the game is currently $90.76 on the secondary market, 34.3% below the season average, and get-in price starts at $28. The two teams will meet for the first time since 2009, where the Nittany Lions took an easy 31-7 victory over the Zips at home.

9/20 vs UMass | Avg. Price: $98.15 | Get-in: $41

The second home game is also the second lowest-priced game of the season. The average price is $98.15 with a get-in price of $41. With a record of 1-11 last season UMass is another warm-up game, and it’s an opportunity to see Hackenberg put up some serious yeards. UMass has just two wins in the last two seasons, one of which came against Akron in 2012.

9/27 vs Northwestern | Avg. Price: $149.14 | Get-in: $75

Penn State will play Northwestern on September 27 and the game will be the second most expensive game at Beaver Stadium this season. The average price for Penn State vs Northwestern tickets is $149.14 on the secondary market, 7.8% above the season average, with a get-in price of $75. The teams haven’t met since 2012, where the Nittany Lions beat Wildcats 39-28 at Beaver Stadium.

10/25 vs Ohio State | Avg. Price: $250.95 | Get-in: $116

In what will be the most expensive home game at Beaver Stadium on the Penn State football schedule, the Nittany Lions welcome the Ohio State Buckeyes on October 25. The average price for Penn State vs Ohio State is $250.95 on the secondary market, 81.5% above the season average, with a get-in price of $116. Penn State suffered an embarrassing loss to the Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium last season, allowing 63 points and putting up just 14 of their own. The Nittany Lions will look to redeem themselves in October, though the team will have its hands full with the star-studded cast of Ohio State.

11/1 vs Maryland | Avg. Price: $132.37 | Get-in: $60

The Maryland Terrapins will visit Beaver Stadium on November 1 and that game has have an average secondary price of $132.37, while the get-in price starts at $60. The average price on the secondary market for the game is 4.2% below the season average. Maryland had a mediocre 2013 season, going just 7-6 and 3-5 in ACC games. The rich rivalry between both teams will be renewed for the first time since 1993 after Maryland joined the Big Ten Conference last month. Penn State is 35-1-1 in 37 matchups with Maryland.

11/15 vs Temple | Avg. Price: $100.71 | Get-in: $34

The Temple Owls travel to Beaver Stadium on November 15 for a game that will also have a below-average secondary market price of $100.71. The two PA teams will play each other for the first time since 2012, when Penn State took a 24-13 victory over Temple. The get-in price for the mid-November game is at just $34.

11/29 vs Michigan State | Avg. Price: $148.99 | Get-in: $54

In the final home game of the season for Penn State, they will welcome the Michigan State Spartans and will see the third highest-priced ticket average of the season behind the Ohio State and Northwestern matchups. The average price for Penn State vs Michigan State is $148.99 on the secondary market, 7.7% above the season average, with get-in price at $54. The Nittany Lions last played the Spartans in 2010 and lost 28-22. Last season, Michigan State went 13-1 and went a perfect 8-0 in Big Ten games, causing a significant rise in price for their visit to Beaver Stadium in late-November.

Here are the Best Deals for Eagles Tickets This Season

From our friends at TiqIQ:

Last season the Eagles surprised everyone by winning ten games and taking the NFC East after starting the season 1-3 and 3-5. Chip Kelly proved to be as good as advertised, and Nick Foles was brilliant for them in the second half of the season. Eagles tickets on the secondary market are averaging $216 for the season at Lincoln Financial Field.

Week 1 vs Jacksonville Jaguars | Avg. Price: $205.58 | Get-in Price: $85

The first game of the season isn’t a particularly exciting game for the Eagles. The Jacksonville Jaguars are once again supposed to be one of the worst teams in the NFL. Tickets for the game still average above $200, with a $205.58 average and $85 get-in price, because it’s the first game of the season.

Week 3 vs Washington Redskins | Avg. Price: $251.55 | Get-in Price: $88

The following week might be the most anticipated on the 2014 schedule. The secondary market prices certainly indicate that with the Eagles tickets averaging $251.55 for the game, the highest of the season at home. The get-in price of $88 is also the second most expensive number, which makes sense since it’s the return of receiver DeSean Jackson.

Week 5 vs St. Louis Rams | Avg. Price: $191.04 | Get-in Price: $81

The game against the St. Louis Rams is the first of the season to average below $200. Eagles vs. Rams tickets are averaging $191.04 for the second lowest average of the season. The Rams just lost quarterback Sam Bradford for the season, but could still surprise people thanks to an elite front-seven on defense.

Week 6 vs New York Giants | Avg. Price: $228.29 | Get-in Price: $90

The game against the New York Giants might not have the highest average price, but the get-in price of $90 is the highest on the Eagles schedule. The Giants could easily have another rough season, and the Eagles have owned their division rivals over the last several seasons. Tickets for this Sunday Night game currently have an average price of $228.29 on the secondary market.

Week 10 vs Carolina Panthers | Avg. Price: $195.04 | Get-in Price: $75

Last season the Panthers were a surprise success story as well. But this year they are expected to regress from their 12-win campaign. That helps explain how tickets against the Panthers managed to average under $200. The average price of the game is $195.04 with a get-in price of $75. This is also a Monday Night Football game.

Week 12 vs Tennessee Titans | Avg. Price: $190.79 | Get-in Price: $73

The cheapest game of the season for the Eagles is against an AFC opponent. Not only has the AFC been the weaker conference recently, but the AFC South might be the worst division in football. The Tennessee Titans are once again expected to miss the playoffs. Both the average and get-in prices are the lowest of the season for the Eagles.

Week 14 vs Seattle Seahawks | Avg. Price: $223.22 | Get-in Price: $79

The Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl last year, but the average price and get-in price of this game is cheaper than the Eagles games against NFC East opponents. The game against the defending Super Bowl champions is averaging $223.22 with a get-in price of $79. Even the Rams game had a higher get-in price.

Week 15 vs Dallas Cowboys | Avg. Price: $242.38 | Get-in Price: $82

The final game of the season is a rematch of last year’s final game that decided the NFC East. It was the third straight year the Cowboys lost the division on the final game of the season, and finished 8-8. This year Eagles vs. Cowboys tickets are averaging $242.38 with a get-in price of $82.

LeSean McCoy Seemed to Enjoy His Time Spent in the General Vicinity of Kacie McDonnell This Morning

Voila_Capture 2014-07-10_01-04-08_PMVoila_Capture 2014-07-10_12-53-37_PM

This might be my favorite TMZ headline ever, but I think it obscures the lede. Never mind that LeSean McCoy and Mike Jerrick entering a frame containing Kacie McDonnell might make you worry about Kacie’s well-being, the real story here is that Shady has apparently never heard of a green screen and seems to be genuinely amazed by a teleprompter. That, or he’s just speechless around Kacie and her Finnish Flag dress. No one ever said running backs were smart.

And why yes, I do hate July.

Joel Embiid Wants You to Know About His Massive D*ck

Voila_Capture 2014-06-27_11-17-31_AM

That foot though

Unfortunately, we can no longer in good faith believe in the legend of “Who wants to sex Mutombo.” But when the sports gods close one door, they open another, in the form of new 76er Joel Embiid in a car with a smaller, whiter person:

White kid: “I’m like 5’10″ and I got a seven inch dick.”

Embiid: “You never do that shit you know?”

Off camera: “Who’s got a bigger dick?”

Embiid: “OF COURSE ME! I’M THE N*GGA”

Barstool has the video here. And with this, we know in our heart of hearts, that Hinkie made the right call. Also, as a side note, there’s no way Embiid is wrong here.

Karma Bitchiness: Bros Randomly Drape Rangers Flag Around Rocky Statue, Their Team Loses Game 1

Voila_Capture 2014-06-05_09-33-20_AM

Coincidence? I think not probably.

Thanks to reader Mike for passing along this photo, taken from Facebook, of a few Rangers bros who, for some reason, thought it would be a good idea to put a Rangers flag around Rocky (dated June 1, six weeks after the Flyers series) in advance of the Stanley Cup Finals. Hey guys, how’s that working out for you?
