SPOKANE, Wash. -

Being in Spokane, we're a little limited on the NFL teams we can make a road trip to go see, but out of the 32 teams in the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks are just on the outside of the "Top 10 Most Expensive Teams to See in Person." 

Business Insider released their ranking of how expensive it is to see all 32 teams in person based on the Fan Cost Index. The Fan Cost Index is calculated by Team Marketing and is the cost for a family of four to attend a game and requires the purchase of additional items such as programs and caps. 

Not surprisingly, the Dallas Cowboys top the list (Jerry has to pay for that new stadium somehow doesn't he?). If you make the trip to see a Cowboys game, not including travel costs, it will cost a family of four around $634.80. 

As equally unsurprising is that the Jacksonville Jaguars are the cheapest game to see in the NFL. With the average ticket price running about $57.65, which is about $50 too much to ask someone to pay to watch the Jaguars, if you ask me. The only justification I can hypothesize is that they get away with charging that much because they are counting on the other team's fans to buy tickets. Seriously, think about it. Have you EVER actually met a Jacksonville Jaguars fan? I saw one at Disneyland one time. He was wearing a Maurice Jones-Drew jersey, so I assumed he was either just a huge fan of MJD, rather than the team as a whole, or he was part of some sort of new "Most Miserable NFL Fans" attraction.

I'm not trying to rag on Jaguars fans, but if you are really out there, please, let me know. I just want to know you're okay and how you became a Jaguars fan in the Inland Northwest? Are you part of the Witness Protection Program and saw some crazy crime go down in northern Florida that you were forced to testify to, despite promise of retaliation from the Alligator Mafia? Does the Alligator Mafia exist? Are the rumors true? 

I'm an Eagles fan. I know all about heartbreak. But maybe not as much as you. Never been to Lincoln Financial Field, which has helped my pocketbook because Philly ranks at #8. 

Anyway, Seahawks fans. You find yourself sitting at #11 out of 32 on the most expensive teams to watch in person. The average ticket at CenturyLink runs $84.60 and if you take your nuclear family, the Fan Cost Index says it will cost you $472.20. With that much money being shelled out (parking always kills me), you're going to need a beer. Just make sure you get the correct size you pay for

By the way, although not an exact duplication, for the most part, this list also falls in line with the NFL's Most Valuable Teams
