Arizona Cardinals Courting 49ers Fans With Ticket Deals, What Would Hamza Say?

Facing a potentially difficult sales environment as the team continues to struggle, the Arizona Cardinals are doing everything in their power to put butts in the seats even if that means courting fans of the division rival San Francisco 49ers with special deals.

49ers @ Arizona Cardinals: A Chance For Discounted Tickets - Niners Nation
I was contacted by a member of (Cardinals) ticket sales staff with discounts of between $5 and $12.50 on the face value of the ticket. Additionally, they are offering reduced processing fees. Ticketmaster usually charges between $9.40 and $11.40 in processing fees per ticket, but the Cardinals are offering the tickets with a processing fee of $4.00 per ticket.

We can't really fault the ticket sales folks at the Cardinals for doing their job -- selling tickets. But we also wonder what Cardinals safety Hamza Abdullah and the other players might think.

You might recall that after the recent "home" game against the Steelers, Abdullah expressed his "disappointment" in the lack of home support.

"20,000 out of 60,000 were Pittsburgh fans. That's absurd and uncalled for. The #BirdGang is better than that...It is what it is. Yeah, you can call us names, and say we haven't given anyone anything to cheer for, but it's 17-14, and we have momentum. But the crowd is pro steelers, so we can't even use our greatest asset, Our Home Crowd... Home field is huge in sports."

You have players understandably upset about the lack of home crowd support while at the same time the organization is actively pushing tickets to opposing team fans. Kind of an interesting situation, huh.

How do you feel about the Cardinals pushing tickets to 49ers fans?
