The NFL isn’t looking to use a Super Bowl in the New York area to price out Joe Fan.Based on the current proposed face values obtained by ESPN.com, three of the five non-premium ticket prices will be higher than last season’s Super Bowl in New Orleans, while two price points will actually be lower.The NFL is considering pricing the best non-premium seats at MetLife Stadium at $1,500, as opposed to the $1,250 it cost for a similar seat in the lower bowl in New Orleans for last season’s game, according to sources familiar with the league’s thinking.After the $1,500 price, there’s a $1,200 seat and a $1,000 seat (both of which cost $950 last season).The league is strongly considering dropping 30 percent of the upper level tickets from $950 last season to $800 this season. The worst seats in the house, the upper corners, are also likely to see a drop of $150 per ticket. Those seats, which the league gives out in its lottery, would cost $500 instead of the $650 they cost last season. – ESPN

I don’t know about you, $800 is still too damn high, to be shivering in cold looking down from some nosebleed seats.
