When the Cleveland Browns traded running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts, the white flag was being waived.
Of course, the outcome of that trade remains to be seen what the Browns do with the pick, though, for the immediate future, the front office and ownership knows fan reaction isn’t going to be positive. That’s likely (combined with the Browns poor start) to hurt the bottom line and ticket sales, so in hopes of bringing more people to the field, the Browns are offering a buy one ticket, get one free for their December 9th game against the Kansas City Chiefs and their December 16th game against the Washington Redskins.
It’s actually a pretty good deal in all honesty considering the price of NFL tickets, though, I’m not sure that’s going to make Browns fans feel any better.
The Browns’ buy one, get one free marketing campaign is just the latest for NFL franchises struggling to sell tickets as the Jacksonville Jaguars recently announced they would provide two free drinks (read: beer) to ticket holders for their game against the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday.
