    We are favorites to win the division and if they don't win the division, I will lose a few mortgage payments.

    That's why tickets this season are more expensive.

    I've had someone offer me $500 a seat for my seats this year.

    I am front row, end zone.

    I gave my club seats to my gf's parents this weekend but could have sold them for $300-$400 each

    Don't worry, they are Titans fans :)

    We went regularly and frequently from the early 90s through about 10 years ago and then it tapered off. We probably haven't been downtown 10 times in the past 10 years aside from going to Titans games. Even then, we usually park on the East Nashville side of the interstate.

    I appreciate the growth, I really do, but geez. Some Nashvillians can lighten up on the "Oooohhh, look at US! Aren't we special?" crap. Lower Broad has never been mistaken for a MENSA gathering but the last few times I went it was nothing but throngs of drunk tourists and businesses that were not much more than tourist attractions and they were charging crazy prices. Seemed like a tacky imitation of Vegas.

    Oh well. Getting off of my soapbox. I agree with whoever said that DT is a bit of a cluster.

    You nailed it. The great offerings of DT (the sports facilities, symphony, etc.) are completely overshadowed by the touristy segment. Broadway is arguably the worst bar strip in the US, taking quality and price into account. Nothing but loud obnoxious tourists, bachelorette parties, horrific music, and virtually nothing to offer the folks who actually live within the city.

    If this were Kansas City, and not Nashville... then there might not be "AS MANY".... but seeing how Nashville is a major tourist attraction for country music & etc, you'll see alot of neon green and etc..

    However, I personally hope this is like the GB game of last year -- flooded with YELLOW but by end of third qtr, most of the yellow was gone....

    We need to make these kind of statements in order to take this stadium back -- you hit the big teams in the mouth, and embarrass them in front of a "traveled well crowd" and they will stop coming in herds -- the lingering effect of "the titans are an easy game" is still around and we need to boot it out the door.

    Then, and only then, will the 2 for 1 mind set [1. trip to a very popular tourist city & southern food outlets 2. a winning football game, probably for a cheaper price than in SEA - or wherever.] fly the coop when opposing fans see the Titans on the schedule.

    It certainly beats Lower Broad in the '70s when the biggest problem wasn't the tourists but rather the hookers. I'll take tourists pouring millions into our economy any day of the week.

    Uh, they offer millions in tax revenue that we don't have to pay for. We're not much different than Vegas or New Orleans. Locals don't go down to the Strip or the French Quarter but both places keep the city from having to raise funds elsewhere.

    I got two goal line front row seats for 250 each for the MNF game this year. Not sure if that spot sucks or what but it seemed very cheap lol

    Where is that showing? Public transport? I think the city is raking in plenty of money elsewhere without alienating locals. Nashville needs some sort of personality in the heart of the city that locals can identify with
