Yesterday we told you about the Seahawks’ dastardly plan for NFC Championship ticket sales, in which the team would not sell any tickets to the game to people with an address in California and 42 other states.
Their motives were clear: they don’t want any 49ers fans raining on their 12th Man parade. Any 49ers who really wanted to be in attendance for Sunday’s game at CenturyLink Field would have to go through secondary markets, like StubHub or Craigslist, and risk paying far more than face value… or being murdered and turned into somebody’s lamp shade in their living room.
But they’re staying within the rules, and the Broncos are even doing something similar for the AFC Championship against the Patriots.
And because the Seahawks are free to do what they want with their own tickets, Jim Harbaugh, like the cool dad who lets his kids get all the tattoos and piercings they want just as long as they’re happy with who they are, is totally fine with it. From BANG:
“Well, it’s within the rules,” Harbaugh said Monday. “It’s within the spirit of the rules of the National Football League. I actually respect it, what you’re trying to do for your team, put them in the best possible position to win that you can.
“And I respect that their organization does that for their team. They do that in a lot of ways, with their team, with their fans, with their organization. So, what do I think of it? I respect it.”
