How?!!!

elliott 16-05-2007 12:02 PM

No.... Still timing out.

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 12:02 PM

I sense a wind-up.

davematt 16-05-2007 12:03 PM

Page Cannot be displayed for me on ticketmaster.

Perky 16-05-2007 12:04 PM

Not at all
I've got my confirmation email
Go to ticketmaster, type NFL
CLick on the more info and it has the option to type in tickets and code
I'll take a screen dump if you don't believe me

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 12:05 PM

Fair enough. I'm apparently in a queue now.

BVB Bob 16-05-2007 12:05 PM

12 minutes wait for me at the mo!

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 12:05 PM

13 for me.

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 12:06 PM

Waiting time going up! :veryangry

davematt 16-05-2007 12:06 PM

Page still not working for me.

very confused :confused:

BVB Bob 16-05-2007 12:07 PM

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 12:07 PM

Five minutes. That's more like it. :)

Ok, I am a bit confused. Everyone seems to be getting through but I keep coming up with a 'The page cannot be displayed' message.

Sorry for trying to help you guys out, but it isn't a wind up. I'm a little too old and wise for that stuff

elliott 16-05-2007 12:12 PM

My friend can get it to work. He's bought 4 lots of tickets already!

He's getting mine now.

Waiting time seems to go up and down very randomly.

nookiebear 16-05-2007 12:14 PM

I seem to be in the matrix but my waiting time keeps going up, not down :(

davematt 16-05-2007 12:14 PM

Just not going through! :D

Stupid site.

nookiebear 16-05-2007 12:15 PM

Your wait time is approximately 10 minutes

If you refresh this page or hit the back button, you will lose your place in line!
We'll continue to update the page to let you know approximately how much time you have to wait and
we'll tell you if we're able to find tickets.

Sorry, didn't mean it to seem personal. I just don't like the way these ticket agencies say that certain people have priority and then it becomes a free-for-all.

90 tickets seem to have all gone!

Just to clarify postage - 4.95. Needs to be signed for.

I'm glad you got tickets, even though i don't post regularly i do come on most days since 2001 and know you are a fellow keen fan

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 12:23 PM

You a Fins fan Perky, or just of the sport?

Perky 16-05-2007 12:25 PM

The sport in general to be honest, maybe i should start following a team
Still in shock about the tickets to be honest

Latvian Eagle 16-05-2007 12:27 PM

Well I hope you all have fun! :sob:

Think of me whilst you're all having fun at Wembley!

BVB Bob 16-05-2007 12:30 PM

Got mine. Can't believe 2x65 tickets cost nearly 150 in the end!
For the record - Block 502, Row25, seats 42&43.

That's another Giants fan (me) & a Redskin (MrC) going. I shall punch him if he cheers the Dolpins scores!

elliott 16-05-2007 12:31 PM

Can't believe the £11 P&P. Wankers.

£90 each for the two £65 tickets. Still better than a tout.

nookiebear 16-05-2007 12:32 PM

sorted - good luck everyone :)

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 12:34 PM

Can see there being a Palace/NFL fans meetup somewhere. Pre-Wembley tradition must mean Duke of York in Victoria?

Icy 16-05-2007 12:35 PM

Ticketmaster are shite! 4.05 charge per ticket + 5 to post the tickets! Lost the first lot as the wait time was 15 mins, then it logged me out after 5 because i hadnt responded within the 2 min timeframe.

I'm going to be doing some major tailgating on the day, but would love a few drinks the night before.

Staying in the travel lodge at wembley I think.

Yes they seemed to have all gone inside 11 minutes. I wanted tickets in Level 2 for 90. There were 90 tickets on every level and none when I joined the queue again at 11.11am.

I got tickets in Block 524 for 75 by 11.22am. The service charge and postage is a right scam.

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 01:11 PM

Already on eBay...

"These exclusive tickets, bought and cannot be used due to a family wedding."

Seems you would have known about that before buying the tickets today.

Let's just say when you have a morning of dealing with dog sick (in a stranger's house) pi55ing rain, an old biddie who sends you away because she forgot you were coming, the last thing you need is the flaming website not working when the NFL/planners have had four months to prepare!!! :veryangry





























But I now have my ticket!!! :lux: :lux: :lux: :lux: :lux:

Just hope I get to see Giants a-la start of last season as opposed to end of last season!!!!

(And a Miami loss always goes down well no matter who they play! ;) )

Grim Reaper 16-05-2007 02:33 PM

Just realised that I've paid the fiver for recorded delivery but probably won't be at this address by then!

Doh!!

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 02:36 PM

Being serious I agree with you. Usual Ticketmaster shambles.

Plus, even if you're being generous = 85000 x 4.05 = 344,250. You should be able to get a better web server with that amount of income for not much.

On a less serious note, if the Jets ever come to Wembley I'm buying tickets and giving them away on their opposition's forum. ;)

Quite a number of fans worried about other teams' supporters being there (judging by Finheaven anyway). I think it will be like the Cup Final, and most tickets will end up in the hands of the fans supporting the two teams.

You're kidding me!!?? You like the Giants? Oh, of course you do, it's a Huddersfield thing!

Can't believe we have a team in common....well, apart from that one in South London whose names escapes me right now!

Up the Bayern! ;)

Grim Reaper 16-05-2007 02:40 PM

Anyone got an idea of when the gates will open? One event I'll make the effort to turn up in plenty of time for.

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 02:59 PM

One pair of tickets on eBay (similar section/price to BVB Bob's) up to 770. :eek:

Im skint, might have to flog em on ebay :D

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 03:33 PM

The 770 auction appears to have vanished or been "corrected". Still plenty of tickets popping up on eBay though.

LLCOOLSTEVE 16-05-2007 03:51 PM

Passwords can only be used once according to Ticketmaster.

Grim Reaper 16-05-2007 05:49 PM

Has there been any indication of what percentage of people who applied received the letter with the password??

First I thought I was one of the chosen few; then figured they probably sent a letter to everyone but seeing LLCOOL's lamenting maybe I was among the chosen few after all.

Grim Reaper 16-05-2007 05:49 PM

I got the email, but didnt get the letter! :sob:

40,000 sold in 90 mins.

Grim Reaper 16-05-2007 05:57 PM

Wow, that's a quick turnaround.

I came back at 12.30 and had no problems getting a ticket. Looks like that dog being sick (which delayed me) might have saved me some online hassle!

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 05:59 PM

Another batch going on sale next month apparently. Reports about that the tickets themselves won't arrive until late September.

Cant see there being many left next month and if there is it will be a mighty scramble.

Grim Reaper 16-05-2007 07:19 PM

Jeez, there's five days of selling in this period. Can't see many being left next month....aside from those on e-bay when people suddenly remember weddings they're attending!!

Strathclyde Eagle 16-05-2007 08:10 PM

When people are doubling their money on eBay you can see why they're doing it.

My guess is that the NFL tried to do some kind of screening, maybe looking up people who registered the same address with multiple e-mail addresses, trying to make sure they've got anyone doing this. The pity is that they haven't got it exactly right. Hard to pick them though - I was worried my saying I wanted to go when I live that far from Wembley would look suspicious. Still thanking my lucky stars that I got tickets.

Grim Reaper 16-05-2007 09:05 PM

Hadn't thought about the distance factor Tony, otherwise I'd have been worried as well.

That said, this is the yanks we're dealing with here - where the state of Florida is the size of England!

They saw you as one of the locals!!

LLCOOLSTEVE 16-05-2007 11:30 PM

balls, only single tickets available this evening :(

saxoneagle 17-05-2007 02:07 PM

Hope you all got what you were looking for! Anyone not getting tickets will have to get themselves across to America for a real match!

I notice that 40,000 tickets were designated for "UK and European fans". Where are the other 50,000 going to? Just the other global markets or will the "sponsors" get most of them like usual!?

Benzhiyi 17-05-2007 04:08 PM

Thank you to the very kind Nookiebear for sorting me out with tickets - my missus couldn't get through on her shite work connection so he saved my ass. (As opposed to his usual trick of trying to touch my ass.)

I'm now off to enjoy Chi-town without having to worry about sourcing tickets to this. :p

Strathclyde Eagle 18-05-2007 02:39 PM

Which would be against the data protection act wouldnt it?

Strathclyde Eagle 18-05-2007 08:46 PM

If that's true then I guess they can only target the people who are advertising tickets as block x, row x, seats xx-xx. Either that, or they're going to make mistakes and really annoy some people.
