This is America! The late George Carlin, the comedian, used to say if you nail together two things that have never been nailed together before, some schmuck will buy it from you. Well the NFL must think there are a lot of schmucks with loads of extra cash in their pockets because you won't believe the deal they are willing to make for YOU, the fan!

They're calling it the "party plaza," because what's more of a party than spending two bills to go through a security line for the right to sit on a grassy knoll, pay $9 for a beer and watch a game that's freely available on television?

Is this the same league that is contemplating a work stoppage because they aren't making enough money? The same league that was ready to sue "mom n pop" t-shirt makers over "Who Dat" last year? I don't know what is more of a concern the fact that this offer is actually out there or the fact that there will be thousands of people paying the money to watch the game outside the stadium.
