I have always wondered how many season ticket holders we have on the mane, and then looking at those numbers how many actually attend games.
I've met quite a few but there is a large "contingent" which has remained "annonymous", for lack of better terms.
In addition, how long have those people had those tix and how long do they intend to keep them. Also, if they were to give them back, what would be a reason for them to do so.

To the best of my recollection, going back 17 years (which is when I moved back home to Colorado), I've missed one Home Game (Medical reason) and one home pre-season game (My wedding out of state).

The last few years I've contemplated giving up, but always seem to pony up when the invoice arrives. This season has had me thinking even harder about calling it quits, but time will tell, as it always has. However, this year the motivation to call it quits seems to dominate more of my thoughts.
I wonder why?

Can't wait to see the opinions come back on that.

This is a heavy contender for the best thread title ever or the worst thread title ever. I cannot tell which.

I had season tix two years ago. I selected the budget restraints but it has more to do with work and family restraints rather than budget restraints, though $2k on tix is a bit much.

Love going to the games and probably would go to more if it wasn't $300 per game. Parking pass or a couple lightrail tix up to the game $25. Three or four beers, a little grub and snacks, another $50. Plus a couple hundred on tix. Yeah, it's cheaper to sit at home.

I think I miss hanging out with you guys before the game more than anything else though. You put on a great spread and I know it costs you a ton as well!

Go rain or shine...

...except on Sunday. We sold our tickets since it's the day after Christmas and I'd rather hang out at home with my kids.

I'm on the wait list-- can't say I'm all that eager as of right now, though. If they trot out Xanders and some third-rate hack of a coach as our new regime, I'm going to remove my name from the list. Not that they give a shiat, but that and refusing to buy any more merchandise is the only voice I get in the matter. I'll never jump on another team's bandwagon, but the Broncos won't get another cent of my hard-earned money if they won't make a legitimate effort to put a quality product on the field. I'm not going to support Donald Sterling.

"Yes, I have tix and attend rain/shine, win/lose."
And
"Yes I have tix, but live out of town and can only attend a few games a season"

I have season tixs, but so far this year I've only attended the 49er game in London. I went to all the games last year, but it has been hard with my study abroad semester and my Navy career.

On the surface, I never considered myself a hardcore fan, but I must be addicted or something because I keep coming back and have had season tixs since my grandma signed them over to me in 1995.... no matter how bad the weather, no matter how bad the TEAM. Plus I have thousands of posts stretched across nearly 9 years on a fan site and have been to away games in Jacksonville, Miami, Dallas, New England, and freaking London.

So yeah, I guess I'm a Broncos fan.

About to wrap up my first year as a season ticket holder. Living down here in Albuquerque, we were able to hit 4 games this year. I was pretty happy with that. The schedule didn't help with a home game on the 26th (Christmas travel/family issues) and then on the 2nd (staying down here to party with friends).

The fact that there are 60" HD TV's with surround sound has to make an impact.

I live out of state, but if all goes well, I'd like to get season tickets in about 10 years and go with the boy on a regular basis. Will cost a lot to do so, but I think it would be worth it if I can swing it.

If I lived in Denver... I would get season tickets.

If I had a lot of money... I would get season tickets and fly in for every home game.

I've had season tickets for about 6-7 years. I used to go to more games than what I've gone to the last couple of years. I live out of state and it gets expensive. It also isn't much fun to spend all that time driving when the results have been what they have recently. You can call me a fair weather fan or whatever, just being honest. I've considered not renewing them just because it is about impossible to get anything out of the preseason tickets and I've taken a beating on the regular season lately too. I think it would probably be less of a hassle and less expensive to just buy single game tickets when I want to go.

Kinda what I am hoping for also. I am just afraid that with all the turmoil I might be eligible for Season tix before my son is old enough to travel that far that often.

No, I live out of state, but I pony up for Sunday Ticket (and the more expensive & crappier DirecTV) and we went to the Jacksonville game this year. Season tickets would be out of our budget if I was local though.

My tickets are technically my moms, so I only make 7 or 8 games a year. She gets the other 2 or so.
The tickets themselves are option A, me personally is only option B
