    TOP TEN PRICIEST NFL TICKET PRICES...Steelers #6

    1. Not surprisingly, the defending Super Bowl champions have the most costly average ticket price heading into the 2014 season. If you want to attend a game at Centurylink Field, you’ll have to pay the Seattle Seahawks organization a median price of $452.34 a pop. Guess almost half a grand is just the going rate for being part of the 12th Man for a day….

    2. The New England Patriots tend to have some of the most costly tickets year in and year out. Going into the upcoming season, you can expect to pay an average of $414.22 to attend a contest at Gillette Stadium. At least you’ll be able to take your kids tailgating and avoid paying a babysitter.

    3. The San Francisco 49ers have been to the NFC championship game twice in as many years. Plus, their new stadium, the “Field of Jeans,” (y’all know I can’t get enough of its nickname) officially opens for business this season. Thus, it’s no surprise that you’ll pay a median rate of $388.18 to watch the Niners play in 2014.

    4. Eli Manning and the rest of the New York Football Giants had a somewhat disastrous 2013 campaign. Nonetheless, you’ll pay an average of $366.34 to see them take to the gridiron at MetLife Stadium during the upcoming season. Hopefully there’s some kind of Super Bowl magic leftover for the squad to harness.

    5. Let’s face it, if you buy tickets to see the Chicago Bears, you’re just as much buying tickets to see storied Soldier Field. Gaining access to the NFL’s oldest stadium will set you back an average of $348.99 per person, but it’s well worth it once for any fan of the league.

    6. If you’d like to see Mike Tomlin try to give his team a helping…er, foot…at Heinz Field, you’ll have to pay a median price of $328.12 a ticket. The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the NFL’s most famous organizations, and have more Lombardi Trophies than any other club, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’re featured on this list.

    7. As mentioned yesterday, nothin’ comes cheap at the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Field. This includes tickets. If you want to check out the spectacle that is Cowboys Stadium, you’ll have to pony-up an average of $322.28 for everyone in your party.

    8. Judging by their average ticket price of $304.19, it’s no wonder the Washington Redskins had some trouble filling the stands during their drama-laden 2013 season. Hopefully the addition of DeSean Jackson to RGIII's receiving corps will bolster sales come September.

    9. The Baltimore Ravens 8-8 2013 year was something of an anomaly for a club that is famed for its tough defense. If you want to see the 2012 Super Bowl champs try to redeem themselves during the upcoming season, you’ll have to be prepared to spend an average of $302.47 a ticket.

    10. Wanna see Peyton Manning play in-person once more before his illustrious career comes to a close within the next few years? Maybe, anyway. Manning might try to play for another couple of decades. Regardless, it’ll set you back an average of $299.84 per person to attend a match-up at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in 2014.

    That must be why most of the drunk Steeler fans don't get free tickets!

    Rooneys are too greedy. Most folk in Pgh can't afford those prices but they don't care. Just keep bleeding the fans dry, to line their pockets. At least J-ville doesn't abuse it's fans like that. Also, Pgh has one of the most expensive beer prices of all the NFL. Another way Rooneys screw the fans. How do you even make a decent living in that town?

    Jacksonville doesnt do it because they cant sell tickets at 10% the cost of the Steelers.

    This is total nonsense, the Steelers median ticket price isn't anywhere near $328.12 per ticket. Median ticket price means the point at which half of the tickets cost more and half the tickets cost less. The only tickets at Heinz Field that would be at or above $328.12 per ticket are the luxury boxes, which are a whole lot less than 50% of the stadium. I note that the linked article doesn't bother to describe its methodology for calculating these amounts. So I call bull****.

    Football is a business just like any other business, supply and demand drive the cost of the tickets. The Rooneys aren't any more greedy than Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, you or me, if you could increase your income you would do it without regard to who has to pay for your increase, the Steelers are doing the same thing. On the other hand, if things head south for the Rooneys I won't blame fans for driving the cost down by not going to games, not buying apparel, not buying souvenirs,etc. If the Steeler fans don't like the increase they are more than welcome to fore-go their ticket purchase and allow another fan to buy the ticket or not and then if enough fans won't buy the tickets, the price will fall.

    The restaurants on Mt. Washington will set you back a couple hundred dollars for you and your significant other, but if you like the food, the view and the service you'll pay it, if not you, then someone else will. When that someone else doesn't show up, then the price drops. Are these restaurants bleeding the citizens of Pittsburgh?
