The San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills charge the steepest price in pro football for a small draft beer -- a whopping $9 per beer, according to Business Insider. The cheapest beers are both in Ohio: the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals charge $5 per beer. The average cost per small beer in the National Football League is $7.28, up 2.1% from last season, says the publication. By contrast, the average price for the same beer in Major League Baseball is $6.10.

Thank you for providing just one more reason to avoid going to Charger games. The ticket prices are a rip-off, an astronomical price to view mediocrity, and that's just the start. After they pick your pocket for a parking spot, they hold you up without a gun for food and drink.

And now they are trying to rip off San Diego taxpayers for $750 million or much more for a massive downtown stadium subsidy. Remember that after a stadium or ballpark is built, the team owners jack up prices for the first few years until the novelty effect wears off. Proof of the pudding: the downtown ballpark.

Maybe that is why they call them Chargers!

Great! Wish I would have thought of that. When I was writing the blog, I deliberately put "Chargers" and "charge" in the first sentence. Best, Don Bauder

Sanders is lucky he sits in a comped sky box and drinks free beer at Chargers games. At those prices a guy in his pathetic situation could easily spend $200 on beer at a single game.

Sanders has lost a lot of weight. Maybe he doesn't guzzle beer anymore. Best, Don Bauder

The Associated Students apparently won't comp Sanders' beer at Viejas Arena. The video below shows a relatively trim Sanders leading a protest over high beer prices at Viejas Arena. He's lucky campus authorities didn't charge him with inciting a riot.

He had gastric bypass or the sleeve, no way he lost that much weight on his own....there go my fatty jokes about da mayor....


Don Bauder Sept. 14, 2012 @ 2:25 p.m.

Instead of calling the mayor Fatso you can call him Ratso. Best, Don Bauder

I can't blame those students. Best, Don Bauder
