Looks just like LP Field but with some incongruities and a higher upper level. Adds a little character to a sterile stadium.

I see a fair amount of people in that "full house" disguised as empty seats.

There's a difference between 'sell-out' and 'turnout'. Right?

The Patriots have sold out every home game for the last 17 seasons I believe. So whether or not every one shows up, every seat to every home is sold.

So seeing all those empty seats in the above picture does NOT mean that there's a possibility that that particular game didn't sell out?

Most of the empties are in the club section, where you see a lot of empties at a lot of stadiums because those people have a climate controlled area with a bar and TVs to go up and watch the game in if he weather isn't 100% perfect.

Every seat to ever Patriots home game has been paid for. Whether or not someone shows up has no baring on the paid attendance. You have to consider it was a late season game against Miami. The Pats had already won the division, clinched home field and were blowing them out. I know a few people that went to the game and they left after the third quarter to beat traffic.

Oh I see.

The Giants would usually sell out every game at their old stadium. But the last time I went to a Giants home game, there were a good number of empty seats in the nosebleed areas.

I see what you're saying...as a Jaguars fan, I have to combat that stuff all the time to defend our fan base. I was more-so just challenging the photo as one of a "full-house". The picture was from early in the game, and just looks to have quite a bit of no shows.

Although before the Pats began winning consistently in the early 2000s, didn't they used to struggle with attendance at Foxborough?

No, they have sold out every game since 1994. Pretty much once Bob Kraft bought the team then Bill Parcels came on board they sold out every game and had no issues with filling the stadium up.

Except the Jaguars didn't sell out a single game all season. Very different from the Pats. Avoiding a blackout is very different than selling out.

Oh, I'm well aware of that and I never said we did. Kudos to the Pats for their impressive sell-out streak.

I believe it can be, perhaps if the superbowl came to Foxborough, it's happening in New York and Boston isn't too much more North! Also got to remember this is an NFL stadium, thats what they do, not just a generic bowl as seen in European stadiums.

Foxborough is in the middle of nowhere. No to a SB in Massachusetts!

Games in Foxboro work for Pats fans. It wouldn't work for out of towners during a Superbowl.
