Third-party tickets range from $2,000 up to six figures for big game.
Die-hard Baltimore Ravens fans will do a lot to show their support for their team, but would they pay almost $316,000 to see them battle the San Francisco 49ers at Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans? Doug Gardner, who lives in Parkton, MD, has been a fan of the Ravens "since day one" and showed his support for the team by wearing his Ray Rice jersey on top of his business clothes. "I even kept it on for client meetings, including some I was meeting for the first time," he said. When asked about the high third-party ticket prices, Gardner said he'd pay "maybe $1,000" to go to the Super Bowl.

Despite playing in New England, fans came in big numbers to watch Ravens earn the franchise's second Super Bowl trip. The head coach and players noticed.
John Harbaugh smiled plenty throughout Monday's news conference. Considering his team is headed to the Super Bowl a week from Sunday, that's no surprise. But the Ravens coach really beamed when the conversation turned to Baltimore's fans. Harbaugh and his team were both delighted at the large number of Baltimore fans that went up to New England and watched the Ravens beat the Patriots, 28-13, in last Sunday's AFC title game. "We might have had one-eighth of the crowd, which is really a high number for a visiting AFC Championship game. That speaks so much about our fans," Harbaugh said when talking to the media Monday in Owings Mills. "For all of those people to make that trip up there at this time of year to support their Ravens is just—…

Patch wants to know what you think of the NFL’s replacement referees' performance so far this season.
Whether your team is 2-0, 0-2 or an even 1-1, you all have probably been talking about one common factor: the replacement referees. Since the NFL locked out the referees over a labor dispute this offseason, so-called replacement refs have been filling in and causing a lot of controversy.

I’m sure this locker room can pile up some cash and try to …
