It sure as heck wasn't watching it on TV that got me hooked. The Lion's are dropping the ball here and they will regret it in 10 years when a generation will be lost because parents couldn't take them when they were younger.
Precisely the point I made in my email. Going to games with my dad when I was a kid is what got me hooked. It's the live experience that creates life-long fans. I'm not expecting the ticket prices to remain the same, and I get that premium seats can require premium prices, but the upper decks are nearly empty. I'd shell out a little money to get my family there, but it has to be somewhat reasonable.
