LMAO @ the "value prices"......but then again, it is SMU and their high dollar fan's, so they may think they are a value...over priced hot dogs, water and pretzels....FYI, the Pretzels are made by 'Texas Twist" which is located close to the old cotton bowl stadium and is not owned by J&J Snacks of Pennsaulken NJ......ever had a preztzel at the mall, welcome to Texas Twist

This is from 2014. I think they are probably higher in 2018

Anything to make the games more “family friendly” is a good thing.

I’m even old enough to remember when there were plenty of kids at Saints games played @ Old Tulane Stadium.

Today it is so damn expensive to go to a Saints game.

NFL football across the country has become a "corporate event." Too much demand from the expense account driven customers who can write it off to actually buy tickets for a family. Taking my two sons to a Giants game, just the three of us, would be well over $500. If I wanted seats between the 30 yard lines, it's probably over $1k.

After losing to North Texas, at least that is the CFN prediction they may not have many customers

Another off-topic rant:
I prefer watching women's tennis to men's in spite of the sub-par execution (I can actually see the ball), I enjoy watching high school & NCAA football because I like watching a wing-T vs a veer & an RPO vs wishbone. The NFL execution is amazing but from a strategy & tactics perspective, the NFL is boring. It's pro-scheme all the way with a little rpo sprinkled in here and there. The worst thing about the NFL is the ridiculous extent that they have ramped up measurables (offensive statistics), to appease the knucklehead fan base and, even worse, fantasy football morons.

I like the NFL. I play in a fantasy football league that will begin our 31st season this year. It was A LOT more fun before the internet. Call us morons, but we know more about the game and it's players as a result.

Frankly, there's a whole lot of football fans that love the NFL and love FCS football over FBS. There's a champion crowned and recognized by the NCAA, rather than the ESPN Invitational Tournament that crowns an unrecognized FBS champion. The level of play, particularly when you get deep in the FCS playoffs is close to FBS. And the level of play at the NFL level is like (and I am using a Bill Cowher analogy here) "going from a state road to the autoban" comparing college football to the NFL.

What this has to do with SMU concessions prices I don't know. I watch women's tennis because they're more attractive and make noises that I enjoy! But I rarely watch an entire match. And I haven't watched a whole NBA game in 15+ years.
