Steelers raise ticket prices

Missing the playoffs in 2009 hasn’t stopped the Steelers from raising ticket prices in 2010.

Late last week the Steelers sent out invoices to season ticket holders explaining the price increases.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the Steelers sent a letter to ticket holders saying the increase was necessary for the team could “continue to meet the challenges of remaining competitive in the National Football League.”

This increase represents the fourth time in the last six seasons that the Steelers are raising ticket prices. The two times they didn’t raise prices were the two seasons after they won the Super Bowl.

  1. Raising their tickets prices was necessary to keep up with Big Ben’s legal problems not the NFL!!

  2. There are attorney fees to pay for and maybe now they have to start spending to satisfy Ben’s habit!

  3. We should do a drinking game for how many times this post gets “Ben = rapist” comments

  4. They need the extra money to pay Roethlisberger’s legal expenses. Covering up all those rapes can get pretty costly.

  5. Well maybe they need some extra money to help bail out Big Ben and for his lawyers he is going to need

    -In other words: “We gotta raise bail for busy hands Ben.”

  7. Getting ready to spend more in an uncapped year? I know Colbert said they wouldn’t. This probably just a cover so they can make more money. I wish I owned and NFL team.

  8. Somebody’s got to pay for the new Steelers security staff, whose sole job will be to babysit Big Ben.

  9. And the Panthers who model theirselfs after the Steelers, still haven’t announced their prices for 2010. But they do have a payment plan in place. I see a ticket increase in my future.

  10. WOW!!!! Good idea Steelers raise the prices of your tickets when your chances of even getting second place in your division are slim to none unless you get some OL and DB help. I’m a Steelers fan by the way.

  11. I’m sure the saying “Send lawyers guns and money for the shit has hit the fan” is familiar even to Squealers fans. Rape charge lawyers don’t work for free, so dig deep because Big Ben’s Little Ben needs you to stand up for him just like he stood up for you in unwilling vaginas all across America..

  12. Maybe they are saving up for a new quarterback since theirs is eventually going to land himself in jail at the rate he’s going.

  13. Of course they raised ticket prices- how else are they going to pay for Roethlisberger’s bail and legal defense?

  14. Need to help pay for lil ben’s team of lawyers to help him wiggle out of another sexual assault case!

  15. Simple supply vs. demand lesson. When you’ve sold out every single game since 1970 you can set the market.
    Season ticket holders know very well they can get double to triple face value for their investment, so it’s not unreasonable that the Steelers get a fair cut.
    Pretty sure the 30 year waiting list to get season tickets gives them a little leverage too.

  16. If you’re stupid enought to like this team, you are probably stupid enough to pay more for your tickets too.

  17. It’s just the Steeler’s way of saying “Thank You” to the taxpayers who paid for the construction of Heinz Field … even after they voted not to.

  18. They probably have to pay for new pictures so they don’t have to put big loser Ben on the tickets.

  19. Boy the orginality of the Steeler haters is priceless. You have a collective IQ of 10.
    A Browns fan calling calling Steelers fans “mullet wearing hicks.” Take a good look around the next time you are sitting with your friends, wearing Orange and Turd, cheering for a last place team.

  20. Amazing… 4 actual comments that mean something.. 25 that have a stupid lame ass Rothlisberger variation.. Aim high dirtbags

  21. Ravens fan here who hates the Steelers. But to be honest, they have huge numbers of rabid fans and the team can jack them up without killing demand for tickets. So this makes business sense. Another version of that cynical old saying, “No good deed goes unpunished.”
