Arkansas fans have to be insane

    Arkansas is playing Texas A&M in Jerry Jones new stadium this fall.
    Want to go?
    Tickets are going for $300 a pop. Yep, $125 for the ticket and another $175 "donation" to the Razorback Foundation that is required for each ticket. And that's for the club level seats and you aren't even guaranteed a good seat. All it means is that you get club level and they won't tell where the seat is until after you pay for the order.
    To buy four tickets, it will set you back $1,208.
    And to park at the stadium, you'll have to buy a parking permit and I haven't heard the price on it.
    That is, excuse my language, fucking crazy.

    From what I've read, other seats cost $85 and $125.

    And that's like upper deck corners.

    Arkansas fans don't have to be insane -- but it helps.

    That's a lot of money to see two horrible NFL coaches. ;D

    A&M hasn't released the prices for tickets yet, so they might be cheaper. Who knows?
    But in this economy. To charge $300 a ticket is just not realistic.
    And if you are a season ticket holder, you still have to make the ticket donation. So if you're an insane Razorback fan. To make all the home games plus the A&M game and for four good seat tickets, it will set you back thousands and thousands of dollars.
    That doesn't include travel costs.
    Nuts. Fucking nuts.

    I think on-site parking is going to be $40 for Cowboys games. I would assume it would be the same for other events.

    And there isn't a ton of off-site parking around there either. The Cowboys have actually contracted with a Wal-Mart across the street from the stadium to use part of its lot on game days.

    No, I'm not making that up.

    $40 fucking bucks just to park for a few hours? Holy cow.
