Only if money is no object!

Otherwise, one would hope that people are smart enough to think these things through and then decide whether or not they're willing to take the risk. I suppose that depends on what other financial resources they have at their disposal to cover the potential losses.

If money was no object, I ( and probably anyone else in the same boat ) wouldn't be hanging out on this forum. We'd be too busy spending as much of it as possible on great adventures.

I didn't see it last week in Vail. All my friends are suffering, business is way down, people continue to get laid off, construction projects have screeched to a halt, new construction is a laughable dream, tourist traffic is way down, bookings for this winter are weak, housing prices(especially multi million $$ properties) have collapsed, and so on.

I also noticed quite a few empty seats last weekend at the Broncos game.

EMPTY seats at the Broncos game is a more accurrate indicator than the easily fudged indicators used by the economists. Now we're taliking about the real world and not some Wall Street fantasyland.

It's funny that Wanneroo and Cosmic should mention that. Because I've been to a few hundred Bronco games in my day and my OPINION ISSSSS (drum roll please), yep, there's some empty seats going on here!

I know a lot of season ticket holders that will pull certain tickets out of their season ticket package (not ALL of them, but a few of them) and either go e-bay or to ticket agencies who are out of state. If they get 5 times over face they'll take it. They'll do the same with the parking permits. Sad, but true. There has been some layoffs with friends of mine associated here. There also was a substantial number of Patriot fans in the stands as a result of this. The Broncos next home game is November 9th and that situation will increase 50% when the Pittsburgh Steelers come to town. The Steelers have one of the bigger fan bases in the NFL. Trust me on this one.

And yea, it's a matter of money, or lack of, with a number of fans.

AFAIK the Broncos have been sold out since 1983? Last I was out at a game was 2000 and I don't remember any empty seats then.

Back when I bought my tickets in August it wasn't hard to get any seat I wanted and I was surprised at the thousands of seats empty when I was actually at the game. Especially in the nosebleed section.

Our two tickets in the "club" section were $800 plus parking $50, food $60, broncos souvenirs, blankets and jackets $200. It was a great game and everything but I wont be doing that much.

Bronco games are sold out just not everyone uses them.

I have season tickets and Pay 277 dollars a ticket for club level but that does include parking.

I assumed many of those seats were season ticket holders, but it is interesting that many of them(thousands) failed to turn up for something that was paid for.
