I don't get why people get upset about season ticket prices. If you own season tickets I assume you live in a house with champagne drinking fountains and 17 bathrooms. Seasons too expensive? Fire one of your man-servants.

Come on man.  Taro only has 15 bathrooms and the drinking fountain is filled with Ripple.

Guys, we need the extra money for Jobt's bonus.... Those tantalizing trade deadline moves need to be rewarded. I bet he even broken a sweat that day, far more of a sweat than when he was seen killing the fax machine

Anywho, it's great they listened to the fans, who were obviously clamoring for higher prices. Kevyn thinks the fans in the shoot twice end will understand why prices there are going up. I kind of doubt that. Why is it suddenly worth more to sit there?

There was talk of Fan Experience beyond the on-ice product. Is this really a thing? I must be a weirdo. I walk in, get to my seat at least 45 minutes before faceoff, stare at the ice, watch the game, never leave my seat, then walk out. What more is there? Have we become mental midgets who need whoops and boops and bells and whistles? There was no fan experience at the Aud beyond watching the game, although I did enjoy checking the outside temperature. Times have changed.

The only change I really would like is better food and more beer options. I was blown away by the offerings when I saw a game in Anaheim a few years ago. It made the whole experience better to know I was getting my money's worth from the concessions. I don't feel that way about KBC's offerings.

One of my biggest gripes about what they’ve done to the Amerks experience. There has evidently been enough bitching that they actually sell Cream Ale now...in the city that brews it....finally....

Amerks games used to be really good for concessions. I'm sorry to hear that it changed.

I used to bring my gluten free niece and nephew to games. Between the gluten free stand and the taco stand I could feed them a decent dinner. Now their Mom won’t let them go because, well, who is going to let their kid have popcorn for dinner? If we lived in the city it wouldn’t be an issue as I could take them to dinner first but us country folk coming in for the game are limited by the commute time. My wife even has been staying away because it so friggin cold in there. I’m told that is a rule implemented by the A to keep the ice yada yada. No one believes them. I watch a lot of games alone now(try giving away free Amerks tickets and see what hard work it is)and they wonder why I’m on the fence with renewing. They don’t really care though because I’m also told season sales are just fine. “We’ll have no trouble selling your seat.”.....ok then....

Anyone working for PSE that says anything like this should be fired immediately.  I've had seasons.  I go to games all the time. For an arena that houses 11,000 seats, they are lucky they put 2k in there on a weekday.  They should be sucking season ticket holder's *****, literally.  It's almost as if the people in charge are trying to lose customers.  They've made everything about the game day experience worse and are charging more for your pleasure.  

If it wasn't one of the few things I take pleasure in with my free time, I'd never consider going. Certainly not going to get season tickets under the current management.

I had last row Reds in the Aud behind the net where Sabres defended twice. They were just fine

I’m on the isle upper section front row. Tons of legs room and a parapet wall to hold food/drink/game notes. It’s tough to find this perfect combo that’s available. The last game there was a tag on the seat behind me declaring that seat available for seasons. I have no doubt they are offering up mine as potentially being available when folks inquire.  If it wasn’t so difficult to get this type of seat I’d walk away for a few years. We’ll see what my disposition is after my rotator cuff surgery on Wednesday. I may just tell them to stick it up their ass. Or. I may be docile and conciliatory by then. We never know until we get there.

How do people in business learn to talk like this:

‘”It’s important to start with the fact the whole building was rescaled and when we got advice from the National Hockey League and looked at markets across the league, best practices, we internally made the decision to use our analytic department to speak to us and give us the data back..."

It's how business works, so that's how you talk.  When you listen to analytics people on here talk it's the same kind of jargon, but focused in their area.  The same holds true for physics, engineers, etc.  Doctors talk about all kinds of stuff in ways no one understands.

I'll disagree here.  I was a Poli Sci major in college and have an MBA.  I definitely did not learn the speak from my Poli Sci era.

The question isn't why is it suddenly worth more, it's that it was always worth more and why weren't they charging for it?  This is pure business and pricing theory.  Granted all people see is "price is going up" and I don't blame them.  However, if they raise the prices and people buy the tickets they are vindicated.

And yes.. society needs all kinds of whoops and boops because the next generation is being trained to have a much shorter attention span and learning to be inundated with information from a variety of sources at the same time.  You have to tailor the experience for them or they will find it boring.  Those of us who grew up before each news station was a collection of scroll bars with information will have a hard time grasping it.  Kids though, they are on their phones with 150 notifications per second, watching 6 second clips of 35 different things.. continually jumping from one thing to the next.

Sounds like they looked at the food and decided profit margins and quick sales were better.

 I suppose you're right. Chet and Muffy's kids are old enough now to attend. I know they have a boy and a girl, but I'll be damned if can remember their names. Anyone?

Not really, they exist somewhere on the gender spectrum and ideally you will let them tell you where.
