There was not for everyone. The NFL has always attracted a large number of fans at its international games, and this was confirmed again on Tuesday. When tickets for the meeting go on sale Buccaneers-Seahawks at the Allianz Arena in Munich, the site ticketmaster.de was literally taken by storm by thousands of fans, impatient to see the throws in touch of Drew Lock or the frozen face of Tom Brady. Some posted messages on social media indicating that up to two million potential buyers were ahead of them in the queue. As a reminder, the stadium has a capacity of approximately 75,000 seats.

Sold between 65 and 165 dollars, the places oscillated between 585 and 33,760 dollars on the Stubhub site on Tuesday evening. See you next week to try your luck for both games at Tottenham.
For Fred Warner, Trey Lance is the man for the job
The summer preparation which begins in a few days will give rise to some battles for the place of starting quarterback. One of them takes us to the West Coast, near San Francisco, where the player of 2e year Trey Lance will try to overtake Jimmy Garoppolo. But does the former resident of North Dakota State have the shoulders and above all the level to hold the position? His teammate Fred Warner (LB) do not doubt it. During his appearance on the Rich Eisen Show on Monday, the linebacker praised the young man and thinks he is ready to take on the number 1 costume from the 2022 season.
“I keep saying that I admire the way Trey [Lance]took all the criticism, and everything I guess you could say about all the pressure people are trying to put on him. He was super professional about it, especially with his young age. He is very mature for his age. »
“And so, just the things you see of him and the little things that everyone outside the building sees of him, that should give you a good idea of the maturity of such a young player, and if we gave him the reins, how he would handle it. I can continue to sit here and tell you what a great person and player he is. I have already spoken about it. But whatever it is, I know that if we give him the reins, he is ready to do so. He is very professional and mature and ready for anything that is thrown at him. »
