    Scalp or buy tix online?

    Haven't been to many NFL games recently but am looking to go down the Fins at Jaguars game since it's only an hour away from me.

    Whats the best way to get cheap tickets? I do not care where I sit as I'll be drunk off my ass and moving around the whole game. I need 3 tickets total, is it cheaper to scalp or buy on a place like stubhub/craigslist?

    also what's the usual running rate each for tickets at a shitty team like the Jags?

    In my experience always cheapest to buy outside the stadium because those guys are out of options for selling and have to get rid of them.

    Basically yes. Try to fund beforehand where the ticket sellers hang out.

    I've never had to wait very long after kick off.

    usually a few minutes after kick off those scalpers start sweating and they are willing to strike a deal for whatever just so they aren't left holding them after the game.

    I had an old friend that used to swear by doing this for seats. He'd go to all types of games, regular season, playoff games, etc and get great seats cheap. You find out who has tiks to sell and where the seats are and once the game starts, the prices will drop. You can get good seats cheap, but doesn't work as well when you're trying to get multiple seats all together.

    I've done it a few times myself, even went to the NBA 1999 Championships GM1 Knicks vs. Spurs. Paid half of face value and still had pretty good seats, only missed the first 5-7 minutes of the game.

    Recently got tickets of stub hub......the fees were more than the tickets themselves. Absurd but you don't have to haggle with scalpers and craiglisters.

    Look online what tickets are going for (cheapest), then go to scalper and tell them you want 3 for $ (half of what is online)
    If they don't want it, then go to the next guy
    Just make your rounds until you find the guy that will will sell them to you

    Seatgeek is a good app that compiles all the ticket websites and tells you what the best deal is.
