    Anybody else get theirs?

    Cost for my two seats in plaza: $1,620 +$4 shipping/handling.

    We'll get a $242 credit from the unused playoff ticket.

    The first two years I had season tix I paid $240 per seat... Third year went to $360... the following year went to $450 and I moved back to Vegas so I let 'em get away. I thought almost doubling the price over the course of two seasons was pretty lame...

    Yeah that sux... it wouldn't be a major issue if you only needed one seat... but when you've got four or more season tickets to buy it can become pretty cost prohibitive...

    Yeah, we get 5. I can't remember what sections they are though. My parents buy them and then scalp em back to me. Usually for a substantial discount as I have to travel and it already costs me a fortune just to get to the games. My sister and brother in law buy 2, my parents take 2 and the 5th one floats for me or friends or whoever wants to pay for that seat. It is a pretty choice deal, as I get to pick whatever games I want to go to. If I lived close enough for it to be practical, I'd get a set for me and my girl.

    Keep in mind, that's for two seats.

    But still a sizable increase.

    I guess it's like a $20 increase per seat per game, so I guess its not so bad.

    Agreed. In past seasons, I'd just take someone with me and not charge them anything for the ticket. This season the person I took to the Bronco game insisted in paying their way.

    When I told my wife what this year's prices will be, I got a look and she said "you better start recovering your costs". Can't argue with her on that one. At $81 per game that's a little too tough to give away.

    I do not know how many other teams around the league who did not have a price increase in season or individual tickets. Even a sub-.500 team like my Bills had an all around ticket increase.

    Granted, money does not grow on trees nor will I make as much in a lifetime as most players do in a year, but it is perhaps one of the best deals considering you have 10 (or more) games a season to look forward to from training camp in August all the way to December.

    That amount Flowsomuch dished out is a hurting.

    I'm in the same boat. I need to get guests to pay rather than just pony up for beer and "Charger Dogs".


    Did anybody else notice that for the first time that I am aware of, the prices for plaza and field are more than lower view? It used to be that Lower View, Sideline View, Field, Plaza, and Loge were all the same price. Now Field, Plaza, Loge, and PRESS level are all the same and my lower view tickets are not as much. I wonder what effect this will have...
