Focus will shift towards the pre-season games after the Lions start training camp in 3 days. Yes, just 3 days remain until camp opens, one day for each dollar it will take to see the Lions play the Bills in pre-season game number four.

The inclusion of pre-season games in a season ticket package is probably the biggest rip-off in sports. As such, the secondary ticket market is flooded with unwanted tickets to exhibition games that few people want to attend. The fourth pre-season game has become a do-nothing warm up in which player put their primary focus into not getting hurt (James Stewart, 2003) and soon to be cut players try to make the best possible game film in hopes of landing with another team.

A $3 price tag for an NFL ticket makes it pretty easy to determine that the supply is high and the demand is low. That is economics, Detroit Lions style.

The Countdown rolls along: 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4
