"Well, this canít be a good sign.

Tickets to Sundayís game between the Broncos and Chargers are available for a discount on livingsocial.com, a website that offers daily deals for restaurants, events and services."

"Are the Broncos that bad now that the team has to severely discount tickets to fill seats? For a franchise with such a strong history of great home crowds, it has to be disappointing. Denver has long prided itself on its sellout streak and lack of TV blackouts that affect other similar-sized markets. I surely hope thatís not coming next."

They're always sold out. People decide not to show even though they have tickets.

Broncos tix are still in demand here. It's the people with season tickets that are just losing intrest from week to week, so you have an unusually high number of no-shows.

Despite our suckage, we still have possibly the second best small-market fan base behind Green Bay. Actually, I would consider Denver a medium-market team, so that increases perception even further.

Not for long. A pity really. How to screw up a storied franchise and tremendous asset in 3 short years.

I'm ashamed that Denver is turning into a freaking baseball town. Blech... I'd rather watch golf.

I'd be perfectly fine with shipping the Rockies out to another city.

Didn't see this thread.

I wouldn't be surprised to see blackouts and the artificial sellout streak ending coming down the pike.

Funny how the "Kids" on the site have no idea what Denver football was all about. Young man, you were not even born when Denver Football season tickets were more valuable than gold.

Married couples would get divorced, the man would lose the house, pay out the ass for alimony and child support and have the wife end up with his hunting dog.... YET it was a huge win for the man since he got to keep the season tickets they had for years.

These are not tickets that were sold, and no-showed. There are tickets here that were never sold. If that were by design, I think the front office would have put the kibbish on this story by now.

Again, those tickets have been sold. These appear to be different tickets, not resold tickets.

I agree with this, but the suckage has taken a huge toll on the market. The fans are not the same as they once were.
