The media is getting worse and worse, coming up with stories that most people don't agree with.  They may need to interview 30 people, but once they find someone who agrees with their side of the story, that'll be the person you see on the news, seemingly giving them credibility.

Almost no one - not the teams, and not the fans - want neutral site games.  It's accepted for the Superbowl, but the few fans lucky enough to secure tickets also face steep pricing for airlines, hotels, and just about everything else involving the game.

Eagles season ticket holders are charged for playoff tickets only when it's known what game they'll play.  Using this year as an example, I was charged the day after the Eagles clinched the first round bye for the Divisional round.  After the Eagles beat the Giants, I was then charged for the Championship game.

Tickets for the remaining unsold seats went on sale 5 days prior to the game being played.

Yes, and I'm sure most teams do something similar. The tickets are still "sold" before the game is confirmed.

On another note... the five COTY finalists have been announced: Sirianni (Eagles), Shanahan (49ers), Daboll (Giants), McDermott (Bills), Pederson (Jags).

And there's at least another handful that you could argue should be on the list: Campbell (Lions), Carroll (Seahawks), Tomlin (Steelers), O'Connell (Vikings)... not to mention the two AFC Championship coaches. I don't think there's ever been such a broad field.

More news of Joe Judge being a confirmed terrible NFL coach: https://www.bostonherald.com/2023/01/26/inside-the-most-dysfunctional-patriots-season-under-bill-belichick-ive-never-seen-anything-like-it/

Especially considering the Giantsí relative success in their first year without him, I donít understand why heís not up there in the discussion of worst recent head coaches.
