    How come ticketmaster is still selling tickets?
    In order to be considered a "sell out", the team must sell 62,000 tickets by the deadline.
    The dome holds closer to 65500.
    So even though it is sold out by television standards, there are still tickets available.
    That is dumb.

    It is a poor choice of words, I'll give you that.
    The idea behind it is that if a team has sold 95% of the tickets by a certain point, it is will more than likely sell out in the three days before game day.
    Plus, this allows for single tickets that go unsold - they don't happen too often, but I bet that there are at least one or to per section, up to almost one hundred a game.

    Also - the Redskins have returned 400 tickets, which are now available through Ticketmaster.
    Those are not counted as part of the sell-out calculation.

    Best post in this thread.

    ;D

    I also find the whole "Sellout Streak" thing very amusing.
    Wonder what they will do with respect to seating capacity in the new stadium if they every build one in MN.
    Pare it down to 60,000 so they don't have to go through this all the time.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
