NFC Championship tickets are insanely expensive

Everybody wants to be at the Linc in person when the Birds make history but only 69,000 or so lucky souls will be sitting in the stands screaming their faces off on Sunday.

And if you want to be one of those fans to see the action live and in person and don't already have tickets, it's time to crack open that piggy bank -- and take out a second mortgage, really -- because tickets  to the NFC Championship Game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings are crazy expensive.

Just how expensive? Try the most expensive resale price ever on the secondary market for a conference championship game, according to TicketIQ.

Some of their stats around the tickets for this game, from TicketIQ's Ralph Garcia:

"The NFC the Eagles vs Vikings Conference Championship at Lincoln Financial Field features an average asking price of $1,280 with cheapest available ticket $763. This average is up 62% since Philly's victory over the Falcons and is the most expensive Conference Championship game we've ever tracked."

"This price point is a significant increase from what Eagles fans are used to. It marks an 176% increase from the Divisional round's average price vs Atlanta, and a 300% increase from the regular season average price," Garcia writes.

    The fact that the weather is supposed to be relatively nice with temps well above freezing and no chance of a blizzard certainly makes attending more appealing. Maybe there are a lot of rich The Roots fans out there who want to see Black Thought and Quest up close in person?

    Similarly, on StubHub, the "get-in" price for just a standing room ticket is hovering around the $600 mark. You could buy a new 50-inch HD TV to watch the game on instead!

    Have fun at the game if you're going and maybe purchase one of those 50-50 raffle tickets so you can pay that second mortgage off.

    Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

    The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

    As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

    As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

    You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


    Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

    We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

    You be the judge.

    Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

    Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

    Updated: 6:35 p.m.

    Oh boy.

    Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

    Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

    And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

    The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

    Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

    So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

    Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
