Bengals bundle ticket packages
The Cincinnati Bengals, who have had their issues selling tickets over the years, have decided to split the games on the 2012 scheduled into packages for fans to purchase.
Tickets are $53 each, and according to WKRC Channel 12, the orange pack contains tickets to games against Cleveland, Dallas, Miami and Pittsburgh. The black pack has tickets to game versus Baltimore, Denver, Oakland and the New York Giants.
The two-pack games pair the Browns and Steelers, Cowboys and Dolphins, Broncos and Giants, and the Ravens and Raiders, who are now quarterbacked by former Bengal Carson Palmer.
While the idea of packaging tickets is not really new for sports like baseball, basketball, hockey and college sports, it is perhaps worth considering for other NFL teams who battle attendance problems in an era of a sluggish economy and HD televisions in living rooms.
