$65.00 for one ticket (and up), plus $10.00-20.00 for parking, one hot dog, and drink = $100.00 ++ minimum. Still way less than any rock concert….

Falcan’ts will be one and done in the playoffs, and the Saints will be the ones that give them the ceremonious boot out the door!

GEAUX SAINTS! OUR TIME!!

SeenThisB4. All flights to Dallas must come through ATL. The Aints flight has been canceled! GO FALCONS!

The ONLY team in the NFC that has clinched a playoff spot is the FALCONS. Aints losses to Atlanta and Tampa will leave the aints in NO town.

Hopefully the Dome will be full for Monday Night and for the Playoffs.

It hasn’t been full yet this season.

Y’all wanted a team worthy of your support before flocking to the Dome…..well, now you have one.

So, get off your ass, get your tickets, and be there in full throat to support the home team.

Ledbetter – WHY HAVEN’T YOU INVESTIGATED THE PUNCH BY ONE OF THE PANTHERS TO OUR FALCONS PLAYER ON THE SIDELINE DURING THE PUNT RETURN?

Isn’t that your job to find out about these things? Or is actual reporting beneath you and all you do is blog? Look at the clip, talk to some Falcons and the NFL and see what’s going on.

The NFL is disrespecting the Falcons by being hush-hush on this.

The NFL is covering up a cheap-shot against the Falcons.

Neither the NFL nor The World-wide Leader give a $#!+ about the Falcons.

They want either a Jets vs. Giants Super Bowl…….or Patriots or Steelers vs……Philly, or some mixture of those teams.

Hopefully, the Falcons will spoil their plans.

That’s the first I’ve read about it. I’m shocked that the AJC hasn’t had a story on this. C’mon man.

@ SeenThisB4… you better worry about making the playoffs first. If the Falcons beat the Saints on Monday, you will most likely have a must win in week 17 against a much improved Bucs team.

Prof….that’s old news, Owens got popped gunning on a punt, player for Carolina was fined $15, 000 even though Refs missed the play, NFL reviewed and saw play after game.

Same here. I was logged into Ticketmaster at 9:55, and tried buying tickets every few seconds until 10:15. No luck.

every year i get in the lottery for NCAA Final Four tickets. I know a couple of years ago they sold less than 1000 to the general public. Scalpers had plenty tho.
Remember when NFL management got caught scalping tickets to the super bowl?

Its a hoax…to try and get us to buy season tickets haha…”Oh you couldn’t buy any tickets? Well if you would have purchased season tickets you could have gotten your seats long before they went out to the public. We have several sections and deals for next year for you to purchase at great rates!”

It wasn’t 9 minutes. I tried buying two tickets any price/any location around 9 seconds after they were “released,” and nothing was available.

Someone isn’t telling the truth.

If you were buying on ticketmaster I am not surprised you didn’t get tickets. The best way to get a ticket is be first in line @ Publix ticketmaster and hope that your customer service person knows what they are doing.

Some online sites still had reasonable priced Falcons playoff tickets, I was able to get some at Ticketdango.com and Stubhub.

Falcons need to win out and get homefield thru the playoffs!! Superbowl after that!

I know my wife just bought me playoff tix for christmas. She sent me a text at 10:45 saying she just increased our christmas limits. I pull up the ajc and what do I see? ATL Falcon tix sold out in 9 minutes. Freaking priceless!

I chose to purchase season tickets last week so I could get playoff tickets early. Also in the lottery for Super Bowl tickets WHEN we go to Dallas. I am just out of college and will be in debt for a year because of this but it will be worth it to tell my kids in ten years that I was present for the Falcon’s FIRST SUPERBOWL! DIRTY BIRDS DALLAS BOUND

Please explain to me how High 100s for upper level seats is reasonable?…when tickets on ticketmaster were 70$?

I was on the phone and internet right at 10 am and went through several ticket combinations (1, 2, 3…any price level…etc.), only to be told that nothing was available. It was very frustrating.

Lets see….maybe around 4 or 500,000 people today trying to get 20,000 (or less) tickets.
Its gonna sell out fast.

Having season tickets, or being really close friends with a season ticket holder are the way to go.

@ Falcons Fanatic….

Welcome to the season ticket holders club.
You’re a few years late to the first Super Bowl in club history though. Google Super Bowl 33. If you would like to see the ticket stub, let me know.
First SB *win*….I’m with ya on that!

My mistake, meant to include “WIN.” I do remember watching Super Bowl 33 against the Broncos. Wasn’t pretty. This outcome will be different.

Seen must be getting nervous.
Its gonna be a steep hill to climb for them to beat us and to beat Tampa to stay in the wild card hunt.
Win one game? Sure. Win both *and* have Atlanta lose to Carolina…
As Chipper Jones once said “Hats off to them if they can do it, I don’t think they can.”

Sorry not buying the 500,000 people trying to buy deal…the delay time wasn’t that bad…When I went to buy Wrestlemania tickets for GA dome..the delay was bout 8 minutes long..this one was not even that..it was quick..

I am selling 2 tickets 12 rows back lower level on the Falcons side between the 30 and 35 Section 117. Also including the Blue Lot Parking Pass which is next to the Convention Center!

HA this is funny listening to everyone cry about the tickets? You have to figure that all the season ticket holders are going to buy the playoff tickets so how many seats do you actually think thats left?
Oh for all those that didnt support the team all year except for watching the games on tv we are going to give you the first shot at the season ticket holder seats…LOL
