PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — With the continued interest in fantasy football, combined with gambling, new technology, NFL Redzone, and the inconvenience involved with attending a game, many fans would rather stay home to watch NFL games on their 50-inch high-definition television.
Michael Barkann and Glen Macnow (filling in for Ike Reese) polled Eagles fans on the 94WIP Mike & Ike Show Monday, asking if you would rather watch a Birds game at home or at Lincoln Financial Field.
One caller said he has been an Eagles season ticket holder for a long time and hasn’t been to a game in five years. “I’d rather eat when I want to and go to the bathroom when I want to,” the caller stated.
Incredibly, over 75-percent of fans agreed with the caller, choosing their couch over the passionate Philadelphia in-game atmosphere.
