    I agree but not everybody can afford tickets.
    It's not just the cost of the tickets, it's everything. Tickets, fuel (round trip from where I live...$50.00), downtown parking, stadium priced food, really expensive beer, etc...

    I want to take my wife and kids to the Eagles or Chargers game, I have to figure at least $300 -just to sit in the nose bleed section.

    -Not that it's not worth it, I just can't afford it 10 games a year.

    Tickets to the game in the nose bleed section, downtown parking, stadium priced food, really expensive beer, etc... $250

    Fuel round trip from where you live...$50

    Total cost for the game for you & your family...$300

    Tailgating with all the great members of PP.O prior to the game & seeing your webmaster sporting his swest...Priceless!

    From the Purple’s first head coach of all time (Norm Van Brocklin) to the team’s current head coach (Brad Childress) and 21 on-field meetings in between, the Vikings and Eagles have remained well-connected throughout the years.....

    Ticket to the game $20
    2 Beers and snack at the game $20
    Parking $10 or a long walk, or $5 and you beat traffic by taking light rail.
    Most people don't realize how affordable games can be.
    The tailgating is the best part.

    Thats what i'm saying, if i lived in minnesota i'd definitely be going to most of the games. I live near chicago and still make my way up to the twin cities for at least 3 a year.

    Oddly enough, Vikings game to be broadcasted in North US, and a pocket covering Oklahoma.

    Broadcast maps below.
