In my case at least, I live by the paycheck and my season tickets are my one luxury. Selling a couple in-demand games is the cost of being able to afford to renew and be there for every other damn game. They're always offered to homers first, but if there are no takers I gotta do what I gotta to so that I can be there as often as I can to support the team.
Look, the 'skins had huge chances to shut up the Steelers fans and put this game away early. Botched surprise on-sides? Put it in the damn end-zone. Pick in Steelers territory? Put it in the damn end-zone. The defense had the crowd rockin' and the O had their chances to ice this game fast, and they failed to execute.
