Bears OT J'Marcus Webb selling game tickets on eBay

Jonathan Daniel

Of the $800 selling price, $160 will go to charity. Where does the other $640 go?

Want to attend today's Chicago Bears vs Houston Texans game, but don't have tickets? No worries! You can just click over to eBay, where Bears OT J'Marcus Webb is selling a pair of tickets for $800. A portion of the sale (20%), will go to charity, the ad says.

According to Forbes, the Chicago Bears have the 2nd-highest ticket prices in the NFL, with an average face value of $93.55.

Why is an NFL player selling tickets on eBay? If it truly is to benefit the charity (Ronald McDonald House), then why not just make a donation to that charity and give them the pair of tickets? After you sell the tickets for $800, you're donating $160? What about the other $640 you're making on the tickets?

I'm not in any way questioning what J'Marcus Webb does in his spare time with charities, but it is well-known that he has a friend/relative running his social media life for him (making tweets as him, posting to Facebook as him), and it has often been cringe-worthy and embarrassing to say the least.

This whole thing just feels wrong -- At least to me. Granted, I'm not part of J'Webb Nation, but an NFL player selling game tickets on eBay for ANY reason just looks questionable, especially when only a small portion of the sale price goes to charity.
