Very arrogant franchise we are. The business model is flawed. They need to have an "a la carte" mentality with some of the seats and continue to do what they were doing.
There is a reason why, for example, an airline like Southwest pumps money year after year despite the airline industry having suffered considerably since 2001. Their business is simple and transparent - and people get to destinations they want, at a price that is fair, and a product that is competitive.
We, on the other hand, have a group of hot-shot wanabee sports agents, under the direction of two or three boneheads, who dictate the policies and pricing of tickets - overestimating the PRICE / PRODUCT / and COMPETITION.
We're heading in the wrong direction I'm affraid.
there is a reason this email was specifically sent to season ticket holders. The organization wants to make sure it doesn't lose ground in the sth base that they built up the past few years, especially now that the team hasn't been up to snuff the past 50 games.
I don't blame them for trying to make their season ticket holders feel special. Any good marketing plan would rely heavy on retaining and promoting these plans... It's where the best money is for the club.
For all the people complaining about being left to the curb as a non sth, nowhere in the email did I see the organization not value you, they simply stated the obvious- season ticket holders are their priority.
I just don't understand what the big deal is that email makes a whole lot is sense to me.
