It is just a sign of how bad it really is there. I am in Colorado and I feel for all ya'll affected by the flooding down there in my home state.

New orleans wasnt flooded. I think a lot of regular ticket holders might be from BR though so definitely could be a factor.

N.O. didn't flood but the previous poster is right. There's a fair number of ticket holders in the areas west of the city that did. Plus it's a preseason game anyway. Paying the same face value as regular season is among the biggest ripoffs out there.

Theyre not doing that this year. The tickets are variable priced, where pre-season is super cheap, and regular season games vary based on the opponent.

I don't care what is printed on them, season tickets are all the same price, preseason or regular season.

the flood has nothing to do with this mess, We have no defensive or offensive line. That is the coaches, not the flood.

Find one stadium in the NFL that is full for a preseason game. People do not want to pay inflated parking and concessions to watch practice.

Preseason games get preseason crowds.
People that you have Never seen before, probably won't see again aft. Sept.11.:no: 75% of them have NO IDEA of where they are going, walk around Aimlessly, back and forth.

Usually a bunch of ticket give aways or unloading them Very Cheap. There are many tickets for the Ravens game selling for SIX, YES SIX dollars on Ticket exchange

Not too mention EVERY price for drinks and concessions has gone UP AGAIN and their Service isn't any better as Usual.

$10.50 for Jambalaya (Was $5 in the 2006 season)
$10.00 for a HOT DOG (Chili and Cheese served in a plastic cup)
$14.50 for a Double Alcoholic Drink
$14.00 for "Seafood nachos" that Barely feed 1 person

EVERYTHING we saw went up AT LEAST 50 cents since last season

Hopefully after reading Our comments from the FOUR surveys they sent to Season Ticket Holders (That I did fill out and return) will make them think about it. Probably should't hold my breath though

I can name you a number just on this site that live in affected areas and have season tickets.

Um no the flood has almost everything to do with many season ticket holders as previously mentioned are outside New Orleans they have real life drama to deal with like cleaning out their houses, demolitioning and getting their finances back in order + having to go back to work on a Friday they are way too busy to go see a Pre-season game in New Orleans. I maybe in California but my brother is going through all this so I assume thousands of other Season Ticket holders are as well.

Agree. Does Benson still get the money for concessions and parking at Dome? If so he and probably Goodell are setting the prices.
