NFL losing money? No way!

The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they’ll receive a whopping $89 million in “settlement” money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they’re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans.

It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes.

According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for an astounding three dollars. Tickets at center field, right on the fifty-yard line (typically hard to find), will run you around $30.

Shockingly, those prices are down more than a third from when IJR.com checked the stats.

Obviously, seats for the Bills (who are 6-6) and the Colts (who are even worse), aren’t among the most in-demand tickets in the NFL. But even big-name teams aren’t faring much better. Tickets to see the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field are going for around $20. Tickets to see the Green Bay Packers start at around $10.

Not all teams are in the bargain basement, but tickets are available for nearly every NFL franchise at deeply discounted prices. The Pittsburgh Steelers have some of the nation’s most rabid fans. But snagging a seat at Heinz field will run you only around $65. In previous seasons, Steelers tickets could cost as much as $250 per game — when you could get them.

Things are getting so desperate, reportedly, that some NFL broadcasts are hiring extras to pose as fans. The listing is unconfirmed, but one Philadelphia newspaper claims that FOX advertised for “actors, models, and talent” to work Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Los Angeles Chargers.

AND yet they just re-upped the commissioner’s salary because of the good job he’s doing?
