#867294 Fan Appreciation Weekend April 10-11

Posted by Colin226 on 04 April 2010 - 12:57 AM

What did you win Colin?


2 tickets in section 19, row 9 with access to the Platinum Lounge.. Only way to get platinum lounge tickets is to buy them to every event at pru center for the year or buy 10 of them for a game at like $350 to $500 a piece.. It was the best sporting experience of my life, so of course we renewed mere hours after 2010 - 2011 invoices went up

Back when they had no extra prizes for season ticket holders, the rigged in-stadium drawings were a lot more annoying but since really the Frozen Over thing is more weighted to the upper level season ticket holders (more likely to pay in a lump sum immediately) I don't mind them weighting the fan appreciation to lower bowl sth's.


Good point

Random can still be weighted. If I was doing the drawings I would certainly weight things based on ticket prices.

Besides, lots of people won the big prizes for frozen over from the cheap seats so I don't think the team is being unfair even if they are weighting this particular event.


But is it unethical to claim a random drawing when it's weighted? Hey I won a huge prize in Frozen Over so I'm content.. Doesn't mean I can't point out that the random drawing didn't seem random.. I was also under the impression that the drawings were for every seat in the house not just ones owned by STH

fan appreciation day has never been awesome and what you described about how "random" the drawing is certainly seems correct.


It felt awesome when I went a few years ago at CAA.. But yeah in the uppers we were laughing hysterically by the end because MAYBE 3 of the 25 - 30 prizes given out were in the upper sections.. And of the 3, 2 were like posters from previous giveaway days... We were only laughing on the outside.. Hurt pretty bad on the inside

If this year's drawings are as "random" as last year's I'm complaining to my ticket rep.. He always seems to answer my concerns well

Eh... last year they did a pre-game fan fest and then did "random" seat drawings for prizes.. No joke, the lower bowl just so happen to take home 80% of the prizes (and 95% of the awesome prizes).. It was horrific and obviously not random at all

Fan Appreciation day was really not that awesome lol
