We do. It's called Winning Football games. We do that and more "fans" will want the tickets.

Re: F... Selling Tickets to the Visiting Team

Giants fans are going to be paying tons to get into their new stadium, especially the "good seats", so expect more and more fans coming down here to see the games. I think that will be "just the way it is" for some time to come.

Not sure with the economy as it is ticket prices are staying the same and are dropping in some places.

Don't hate the playa, hate the game!
Well why can't the people on the waiting list go to Stub hub and buy the tickets themself?

Some people do this; the problem is that some tickets are a 400% mark up over the original seat cost. A season ticket holder could essentially pay for his season tickets by selling 2 games.

I and others here have all said that we had trouble just selling them at our cost. When we would get to Thursday before the game I would have to sell them on craigslist at a loss. Some people jack up their prices alot but there are also a bunch of tickets for sale at a very small mark up if any.

I bought 2 tickets from stub hub for the Dallas game with no parking pass. Section 101, which is LL 50 Yard Line. The price listed on the 2 tickets themselves was $99.00 or $198.00 for the 2 of them.

I paid 1,130.00 for 2 seats after Taxes and S&H on stub-hub which was actually about $100.00 per ticket less than those who were offering Parking passes as well.

Now my question is do season ticket holders pay face value for the ticket or is that print on the front of the ticket BS?

This is good to know because I just reserved my seats for next season. All I have paid is the reservation fee (100.00 per seat so far). I am under the impression that I pay a fee which is a little over 2 grand for the 1st season on top of the face value for each seat. After the first year I just pay for the face value of my seats...Right?

Disclaimer: I have stated before that my uncle has season tickets and that he sells his every year and buys better seats. Sometimes I attend games with him, but in no way were those season tickets ever actually mine... Just in case somebody tries to pull the old "I thought you already had season tickets" bit.

400-level available on stubhub for 120, not bad for stubhub. Unfortunately, I am getting married in less than 3 months, so liquidity is not at its highest.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

I have season tickets. Trust me it is only possible to break even if you sell a set one game at a time. Besides the huge games most other tickets fetch less than face. And the reason the big games get so much money? OTHER TEAMS FANS ARE WILLING TO PAY IT. Firstdown had it right. All the people complaining need to be going to stubhub and buying the tickets. Until then, zip it.

Please read my previous post and answer the questions then.

Edit. These tickets are listed for $265 to $750 each. When you get the tickets in the mail the cost on the ticket itself is $99. So who is cashing in? Washington Redskins vs New York Giants [11/30/2008] at StubHub!

We pay face value, on the front of the ticket.... but we also pay the exact same face value for two preseason games and at least 4 games a year that fetch less than face. A $99 dollar ticket will run $1040. Seeing as 2 games of the year are worthless and AT LEAST 4 games are worth maybe 3/4 face(being generous) that means to sell the other four games and break even someone has to sell that $99 for 173.25. It just doesn't happen. The people who drive up the prices are the opposing fans to the big games. If our fan base went to more games then it wouldn't be a problem. It isn't the season ticket holders at all. Blame those who aren't season ticket holders (and could be) but still complain.

The Dallas game is the exception to the rule when selling tickets but when I couldn't go I sold mine to a friend for $100 each (that was about my cost). The price on the ticket is the price paid by the ticket holder. When I had my tickets I paid ticket price, taxes, and some handling cost which was not that much. I don't know what that 2,000 is unless your getting one of those packages that you have to pay for something besides the tickets. The one deal I saw like that you have to pay that every year to keep the season tickets.

Now I kind of see where you are comming from. It still doesn't make sense as to why I paid $1100 for 2 $99 tickets. In reality that guy damn near paid for his season tickets with that 1 game.
