Giants season ticket holder burns his tickets in outrage over the recent sideline protests.

We can't confirm how outraged he really is. The tickets he burned were for a game against the Chargers. That's not making much of a statement. A lot of people are probably tossing their tickets to that game. He needs to find something of real value to burn if he's committed.

When it comes to the Chargers, fire is cheaper than talk.

Jints fan needs to call 1-800-ODELL. He had a lot of trouble getting those tickets to catch.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if he's a STH, can't he just call his representative with the Giants and say "I've misplaced my tickets for the Giants/Chargers game. Could you reprint them for me?"

And....if you're going to burn them, why not sell them and give the money to a veterans (or other good group) association?

Um...because patriotism, I guess? Sprinkled with cognitive dissonance?
