Steelers attendance for their last three home games:

Heinz Field Capacity: 65,000


It's not like these haven't been big games or anything.

Is that actual turnstile attendance, or is it tickets being bought?

If it's actual gameday attendance, that wouldn't surprise me too much.....but I would be floored if that was total ticket sales, because my impression was that every home game always sells out, which I saw first hand while always getting a late jump on single-game ticket sales.

I don't care if Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy are black. Good for them. But that doesn't change the way I feel about them. The longer we keep looking at guys like Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith as "BLACK HEAD COACHES" as opposed to just "coaches" the longer race will continue to be a problem. --DoctorJohnnyFever

Turnstiles. All of the tickets are sold from today through....well....a lot of years down the road.

Scalpers have been practically giving them away since the end of September.

Giving them away? Gotta ballpark on that? I'm far away, but, for next year....

I've heard the last few weeks seats could be had for less than $30 bucks fifteen minutes before kickoff.

all those mother effers that decided to "beat the traffic" or "beat the bad weather" by leaving at the end of the third quarter can suck a BIG HAIRY DICK.  maybe it wouldnt have made a difference, but im sure it was those same a-holes that were out on the concourses fucking each other up their collective "sixes" while the Jaggies were marching down the field during a 20 play 10 minute drive to start the 2nd.  the ketchup bottle was a flippin ghost town on TV start of the 3rd...

I swear I only saw Y2Joyce sitting in the 500 section holding a flask and mouthing "where the fuck is everyone"

for those of you that stayed...congrats to you, you at least saw a thrilling comeback and were faithful to the bitter end.  the others...GFY

Forget StubHub.  I'm coming up for gameday with cash in hand next year.

I would have to believe that horrible weather played a major role in the attendance--and the fact that one of those games was vs. the winless Dolphins.  But I'm surprised that there wasn't a huge crow for Sunday, big game vs. a rival that we seem to play annually in spite of not being in the same division.  Maybe it's just the gloomy attitude that we're all playing for the right to get smashed by the Patriots, so what's the point?

For the record, I do not ascribe to that point of view.  We've seen what can happen if you can get to the playoffs, and anyone, ANYONE is beatable when you get down to the final 12.

As for fans leaving early, I have no sympathy for that at all, unless it's 50-0 or something like that.  Even then I question it, cause you stick with your team through thick and thin.  You stay until the final gun, and if you don't, you're soft, you're a wuss, and you deserve to have your season tickets revoked.
