Are Colts Fans selling their playoff tickets?

Opened up Google Reader this morning and this headling from the Indianapolis Star started off my morning:

AirTran adds flight to Indianapolis to help Ravens fans

Demand for airline tickets to the Ravens-Colts' NFL game has been so fierce that AirTran said it will add an extra flight Saturday to Indianapolis from Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport that will get passengers there in time for the playoff game.


Meanwhile, all Southwest Airlines flights to Indianapolis from Baltimore are booked for the weekend


What I want to know... what's up with the excess demand from Baltimore? We all know that a bunch of scalpers and resellers buy season tickets so I'm sure that's part of it. But how much of this is a portion of the OMG I'm Going To Complain About Bill Polian And The Jets Game For Three Weeks contingent selling out and selling their playoff tickets?

I certainly hope that's not the case. But considering I've heard people already saying they will get rid of their season tickets if the Colts don't win a Super Bowl, or even that winning a Super Bowl isn't enough after the Jets game.... I'm sort of worried that it may be the case.

If you are a Colts fan who had a hissy fit about the Jets game and sold your playoff tickets... that's just sad. Goal #1 for a team is a Super Bowl. An undefeated season doesn't mean squat, it's the trophy that matters. Selling your playoff tickets because you're upset the team went only 14-2? Damn. That's something a Jacksonville fan would do. Assuming Jacksonville had fans, of course.

Hey, at least our fans aren't lounging in the stands reading the newspaper & don't need to be told when to be quiet any longer. So at least there's been progress.

[None of this is said as a fan of another team. I am a season ticket holder to the Colts and always will be.]

[[And yes, I'm annoyed at the idea of seeing Ravens fans all over Lucas Oil Stadium like the Bad Old Days vs the Dolphins and the Titans]]
