The article gives credit to opposing teams fans. I am a Ravens fan and attended the Monday night game.
“We think we have an explanation. Remember, this report doesn’t differentiate between which team said fan is rooting for, just the overall number of tickets sold. Remember all those games where Eagles fans, or Patriots fans, or Giants fans vastly outnumbered Redskins fans in FedEx Field? That explains it, right?
The Redskins fans were so eager to do anything but attend games in Landover, MD this season that they were willing to basically give their tickets away for free on the secondary market. It was not uncommon for opposing fanbases to be able to find tickets to games for less than $15 and at a solid vantage point at that.“
