this game has little fan interest in attending

season ticket holder that hates Thursday night home games due to getting home so late.
I haven't been able to get anybody to pay anything for the tickets.
Even having trouble giving them away to friends.

this should have been a highly anticipated game.
There will be as many Philly fans  
Metnut : 10/10/2018 11:35 am : link
at the game tomorrow than there were Giants fans in Carolina. Hopefully we can finish the job this year and send them home sad.
Even if they were 4-1, Iíd

rather be at home
Thursday night game  
PaulBlakeTSU : 10/10/2018 11:38 am : link
the team is 1-4
The Weather calls for thunderstorms.
Traffic is a nightmare.

I'm not shocked that it's hard to move the tickets.
Canít blame them

Most people have to get up early to work on Friday. I donít believe this game is that big....we always seem to find a way to lose to these guys so Iím sure many Giant fans not only donít want to be up in traffic late but also donít want to come home unhappy.
Giants fans have for most part become numb to to the team

Now..amongst other factors
Big difference if they were 4-1  
Doomster : 10/10/2018 11:50 am : link
instead of 1-4.....and not knowing which Jeckyll/Hyde team will show up.....

The day of the week and time, and possible bad weather, would not be surprised to see a lot of empty seats....
Honestly, even with little in terms of expectations  
jcn56 : 10/10/2018 11:50 am : link
I'd go to this game if it weren't for the damn weather, which is really supposed to suck.
My son will be there,  
MadMax : 10/10/2018 11:50 am : link
he flew in from Hobbs, NM on Tuesday (staying in Bushwick). So there will be one more out-of-towner rooting for our Giants!
Thursday night games

Are better than Monday night for those in the working world as you only need to get through one day to get to the weekend. And you would think the eagles would be a draw as champs.
I donated my tickets to a charity auction last year  
Scyber : 10/10/2018 12:06 pm : link
I live in an area between NY and Philly so it made a ton for the charity.

Had this been a Sunday 1pm I would probably regret it somewhat, but since it is Thursday night I think I made the right choice.
I have no issues going to thursday night (or sunday or monday) games  
Scyber : 10/10/2018 12:07 pm : link
But the issue is that I usually struggle to find people to go with me.
I dunno, this is a critical game for us  
PatersonPlank : 10/10/2018 12:14 pm : link
Win and we're back in the thick of things
Please --  
UESBLUE : 10/10/2018 12:16 pm : link
Ill be safe and dry at home on my couch and Ill probably go to sleep at halftime.
1-4 and no future QB  
ZogZerg : 10/10/2018 12:23 pm : link
Good luck trying to sell you tickets the next few years...

You wouldnít go to a game by yourself or find someone here who seems relatively stable to join you?

Go by myself? probably not. Its an hour long drive to the stadium and usually a 2 hour drive home with the traffic. Going that and sitting with 3 empty seats around me doesn't sound like too much fun. Typically I try to sell the night games first. I guess if I still had the tickets and no one to go, I'd think about it. I haven't had the situation yet.

And as for "find someone here who seems relatively stable", I've been here for years and haven't seen one yet.
I was thinking about driving

up there tomorrow night and just buying a pair off some scalpers. They should go pretty cheap
Reminds me of this old one....

A man had 50 yard line tickets at the Super Bowl

A man had 50 yard line tickets at the Super Bowl. As he sits down, another man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him. "No," he says, "The seat is empty." "This is incredible!" said the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl and not use it?" The first man says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we haven 't been to together since we got married in 1987."

"Oh . . . I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else - - a friend or relative, or even a neighbor to take the seat?"

The man shakes his head. "No, they're all at the funeral."
I was just thinking, Scyber,

you should have invited Gatoradedunk, FFatman, and me.....probably would have been more interesting than the game....

LOL. Well like I said, I donated these tickets to charity last year. So I guess we will never find out.
I'm a lifelong fan that lives 10 mins  
Dave in Hoboken : 10/10/2018 3:08 pm : link
from the Stadium and I wouldn't go to this game if I was given free tickets. Zero desire to go to this one. 1-4 is 1-4. Years of incompetence is years of incompetence. Doesn't help that the quality of football and officiating is terrible, as well.

No thanks.

Old-tyme street joke I haven't heard in forever. Thanks for that. Former salesman?
