Tice doesn't like scalping

So Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Tice thinks scalping is bad. Huh?

Tice told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis, Minn., that he was upset with the number of Steelers fans that occupied seats at the Metrodome on Sunday, estimating their numbers at 15,000 to 20,000.

"It confuses me, I guess," Tice told the newspaper. "Maybe they're not really diehard season-ticket holders or maybe they needed the money for Christmas presents. I don't know. One of the two."

Tice, you may recall, was fined $100,000 by the NFL in June for scalping his Super Bowl tickets.

The Vikings lost 18-3 to the Steelers on Sunday, and according to Tice, part of the loss was attributed to the large number of Steeler fans in attendance. Couldn't have had anything to do with the fact the Steelers are better team.
