What? Lol, come on, dude. We are a middle class family and took our 4 kids to 3 games last season. No, they weren’t big time matchups like Florida or Bama, but they saw Tennessee run through the T multiple times at an affordable price. We even went to one SEC game against Mizzou.
Happy for them to be able to see it! Don't fault you 1 bit.
I was responding to the #s the OP was referring to.
Affordable is relative, as well. I know plenty of folks that can't afford to drop $500+, for a family of 4, for 1 Saturday in the fall. That's what it costs for "reasonable" tickets by the time you add gas, food, lodging, parking, etc.....
If someone is paying some of the #s I've seen people asking from their fellow fans on this site, that # goes over $1000.
Is what it is and the market sets the price. Is still ok to feel bad for folks that can't make it work.
