11:27 AM ET 11.14 | It's so clear, it feels real. That's how high definition television has been marketed to us since its inception some years ago, and with the advances in technology, it's only getting better. In fact, HD is almost becoming a standard relic, as 3D is the new wave of the home viewing experience. But if you ask Roger Goodell what he thinks of HD, he's not pining over the good it's doing his sport. It's no secret that the NFL is seeing a decline in ticket sales. From outrageous face value prices, to the cost of eating at the game and the inconvenience of waiting for 20 minutes at a time for a little glass of beer, fans aren't going to games the way they used to. The NFL has even lowered its strict blackout restrictions due to the fact that stadiums aren't selling out and fans can't get their favorite team televised locally -- a double whammy of sorts.

Wrong again, Baddell! PSLs, charges for parking and concessions, and TICKET PRICES are what's killing NFL ticket sales.

Perhaps it's the economy...
