Btw this would be the worst possible move for renewals. Anybody who is slightly on the fence about renewing would most likely not renew.
I didn't renew for next year. It was fun selling tickets for under face value of even my season ticket holder price and giving away seats from time to time but just couldn't justify renewing next year with the increased price and my transition between jobs. Hopefully in the near future I will be able to provide this service again =)
