Are Dallas Cowboys Fans The Richest On Earth?

I have no idea how to quantify the headline, but the thought came to me as the Dallas Cowboys prepare to release prices for non-premium seating at the new stadium opening in 2009. Personal seat licenses cost between $16,000 and $150,000. Obviously, no blue-collar average Cowboys fan is getting a hold of those seats unless they have a trust fund handed to them at age 18.

Club seats are $340 a game plus the fees for the seat licenses.  Wow. NFL games are the most expensive games to attend. I doubt I will ever see a Cowboys game up close. I have seen baseball games in the front rows.

I understand that it’s a business, and if fans are willing to pay such a high premium, then the market will allow it. But it’s hard to stomach the realization that I may not be able to afford to see the Cowboys in the near future. I love what I do for a living and I don’t get paid very much.

It’s not just the Cowboys who charge a lot of money for tickets. All NFL teams do. Heck, the Washington Redskins charge more for parking at a game ($75) than my two tickets to a recent baseball game cost.

It seems like my best bet to see a Cowboys game is when I spend $10,000 more on my Mastercard Cowboys credit card and reach that $25,000 level for two free tickets. Then, I still have to pay for a damn flight.

And I’ll probably be broke anyway.
