  • Would you rather attend:

    A). The Mayweather fight on Sat Sept 14th in Las Vegas and fly to Seattle the next morning to attend Sunday Night Football Seahawks vs Niners.

    Or

    B). The Sunday Night Football Seahawks vs Niners and then fly next morning to Cincinatti for their home opener Monday Night Football vs SteAlers.


    ......Just curious......

  • Yeah, A definitely. Why do I care about the steelers? Mayweather vs Alvarez is much more interesting.

  • Definatly A. The adrenaline and electricity of a big fight is every bit as intense as a home Seahawks game.

    If that's not enough simply Vegas vs Cincinatti as a location should answer the question by itself.

  • I go to Vegas all the time. In addition, the Seahawks game after a Friday Saturday in Vegas, a Mayweather fight and then a flight to Seattle is a HELL of a lot to endure. Even for me.


    Have always wanted to attend back to back NFL games on consecutive days cross-country. Always thought wild card or divisional round would be perfect.

    But to go to ANY NFL stadiums home opener is a rush. Add to it that cincy's situation is very very similar to ours. PrimeTime home opener on 2nd week vs hated hated rival that they are trying to wrest the division from?? Add in the fact that I would go in my lime green Seahawks jersey and get down very very close (tickets are NOT as pricy as they should be) and I would LOVE to be in a stadium full of people who HATE THE STEALERS as much as I do...

    Dunno. Pretty close call to me.

  • Not to mention a likely large ML parlay on Seattle and Cincy to win.....

    If I go to the fight I'm betting against Mayweather or not at all.

  • So why are you asking us if you're already mostly decided (it sounds like)? If it was me...option B. Any football is generally pretty good, but I also could give a rats ass about boxing - just never followed it.

    I haven't decided anything. I want other opinions and the first several I got were for option A, so I fleshed out my perspective on option B a little better.

    Am really undecided and figure it would be very interesting to hear other fans' viewpoints which might sway me.

    I have never even been to a boxing match. So there is that appeal.

    I would think that Bengals/Steelers no matter how good it is would be a let down after Seattle/49ers. Especially when your emotional attachment is in the first game.

    And if you've never been to a boxing match that pretty much solidifies A as the best choice, imo. It's really a one of a kind energy.

  • I would take option B. Bengals are a fast rising team with an expectation to contend for the division title. Should be a pretty amped up crowd. If I was still a big fight fan, I might consider option A but if it doesn't stand up to the hype, the undercard better be worth it.

  • B cuz you can scout the Bengals since they are good enough that they may be our Hawks' SB opponent in Feb. :mrgreen:

    Last year my preseason Super Bowl pic was Seattle vs Houston (kearly can verify )
    This year I am saying Seattle v Houston OR Seattle v Cincy, although Denver is the odds on favorite.

  • Option A without a doubt although I do understand your reason to lean towards option B.

    Have you ever seen Mayweather fight live? That would tilt my decision.

    No. Growing up my favorite era of boxers was leonard hagler hearns duran with the hitman being my favorite of the four...I haven't even watched boxing since ?Tyson? And have never attended the spectacle of a live fight.

    Option A then for sure. Television does no justice to the hand speed of a live fight. I saw Chad Dawson fight live and it was incredible. That plus the fact the Mayweather has a handful of fights left and IMO the greatest boxer of this era.

    Manning will throw a very ill-timed pick v. Cincy in the AFC championship game giving the Bungals the SB berth. Afterwards everyone will ask Mr. Ed why he signed a dome QB for a cold weather stadium and he'll blather on about how Peyton's a HOFer, etc. while inside he'll be wanting to say "It was the only scenario available to get rid of Teblow and not get crucified by the Donkey fans".

  • Definitely option A. If you've never been to Vegas during fight weekend, the leadup alone is a spectacle. All the people (Mexicans will be out in droves), playful banter, the excitement of the weighin, etc. It's like nothing else IMO. Been down there twice but have always done the closed circuit at Mandalay Bay for $50. Still exciting as hell. When Pacquiao got KO'ed in December, the Mandalay Bay events center erupted. My jaw dropped and I was speechless for awhile.

    Plus this is the biggest fight in years (not most competitive as I think Mayweather whoops Canelos ass but it could possibly get close or even break May-DLH's numbers)

    What exactly is a big MMA fight? I've been to ay least a dozen "Huge" MMA fights and none are even close to a prize fight weekend.
