Fans, Patriots respond to Broncos ticket ploy

Posted: Updated:
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -

The ticket booths at Gillette Stadium are devoid of diehards trying to score their ticket to the AFC Championship Game.

If the New England Patriots want another trip to the Super Bowl, they’ll have to win in Denver, and the Broncos are doing what they can off the field to strengthen their home field advantage.

The Broncos are only selling tickets to people in parts of eight states in the Rocky Mountain region including Colorado, New Mexico and Utah.

“It’s kind of a low blow. I think it’s kind of cheating, but if they really need that to win, if they’re that nervous, I really feel good about our chances,” said David Latham of Tyngsboro.

“I think that’s awful. If you want to go, you should be able to,” said Cindy Cohen of Brockton.

Tickets online shows basic seats running over $200.

Add to that a flight and a hotel, and you’ll pay more than $1,000 to go to the game.

“Denver is going to be crazy. That place will be rocking,” said Patriots guard Logan Mankins.

Players on Wednesday said they are ready for whatever the Broncos are trying to do. Playing in a noisy, hostile atmosphere on the road is nothing new for the Patriots.

“We had the noise out there today, so we’re getting prepared for it. And we can’t worry about all that stuff,” said Patriots tight end Michael Hoomanawanui.
