Really? You really believe that thousands of people paid £70 for a Vikings jersey, just for this one game, without actually being Vikings fans?

We over at the Bucs UK don't do so bad, we were invited to a closed practice session when the Bucs came over in 2011 where my son and I had our photos taken with a large number of the current team and the Bucs front office ensured that we got priority tickets for both that game and the 2009 one, my family and I met up with the likes of the late Lee Roy Selmon, Mike Alstott, Shelton Quarles, Brad Johnson and Jimmie Giles as well as Buccaneers cheerleaders and this was all through the Bucs Uk's fantastic links with the Buccaneers front office

Thats not to mention the large number of fans wearing the colours of other sides.
Are you speaking from experience or from your sofa, watching it on TV? Because that's not the impression I got being there...and as someone already said, not many people would fork out £70 just to "have fun" wearing a jersey they would probably never wear again in their lifetime. Get real mate...
