Season Ticket Renewals

Recommended Posts

Well knock me over with a feather. Just got a call from a very nice lady at the ticket office. She told me 2 seats in my recently upgraded section that were closer to the 50 yard line side of the section came open and she wanted to know if it was all right for her to move me to those. I said SURE! So I was was upgraded a section closer to the 50 and then moved closer within the same row this year. Not used to calls like this. I usually am the one calling.

HTTR

You suck! :evilg:

Makes sense. Question -- what do you think happens if say they agree on a new CBA mid-August? Let's say they can still begin the season on September 8, but not also get all 4 preseason games in? Do you think they'd rather cancel a couple preseason games? Or rather play them all and just push back the season a few weeks?

I see. You are one of those eternal pessimist kind of guys. ;)

That would be an interesting decision by the NFL. It it were only one week, I guess they would give up a pre season game or two. But I would only be guessing. Hard to move a lot of the regular season games. For example, the Jets and Giants share a stadium, you have Thursday and Saturday night games. Regular season games bring in more revenue than pre season.

I'm not really going to worry about it until that actually happens.

You might have to call the ticket office and tell them to update your online account. I had to do this last week beacuse my online account was not reflecting my seat locations.

It's odd, because my online account isn't showing my tickets (still) either...

I called for another reason, and asked about where they were, and I moved down two rows (11 to 9), but 10 seats away from the 50, so I'm not sure if that's an upgrade or not. :ols:

I actually checked "move over" in my preferences, but somewhere along the line that disappeared too, so I'm not sure if that actually got taken into account.

I've had two uppers the past 4 years but haven't renewed as of yet for a few reasons (lack of

$, CBA, moved further away from DC area) but have been thinking of

Calling the ticket office to renew the past few days. Would I be able

To get tickets still?

I bet they can find a few for you. they may have to sacrifice a few "player returns" in the UL corners, but they may swing it.

Call the TO and report back what you find out. And if they do have tickets for you, ask why they have them available if they are supposed to be "sold out". Inquiring minds would like to know, too. :D

Nothing is really "sold-out" anywhere. You can call a Marriott Hotel and get a room even if there is "no vacancy " if you are a platinum member (75+ nights stayed per year), Derek Jeter can probably eat at any restaurant in New York without reservations. There are seats for every NFL team laying around somewhere. They may be scattered single seats, player returns, OV etc, but they are around. Be persistent and something will turn up.

I called last week to inquire about adding seats to my account. There were 4 available in section 110. I passed.

>>>>>....or they could take the week 1 games and move them to the end of the season like they did the games that were going to be played right after 9/11/2001.......anyways just sayin'. BTW, I'm hoping at least one preseason game gets canned, they don't make it, and realize that four preseason games are unnecessary.

I don't think there is any way they move the Week 1 games off the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. My guess is that a lot of time and money have gone into planned tributes. I am not saying that can't move it but I would bet it would be a very last resort.

Mine was updated a couple days ago (forgot to mention it). I think it took like two weeks or so. So keep that in mind for around the time you get your letter in the mail.

Not sure how they work the payment plan during the season, if they give you all 10 tix up front, or make you wait. Maybe you have to pick up the tix at the TO for each game to make sure your payments have been made accordingly. But the free jersey will probably be provided in August after your first payment.

Just a few weeks ago they told the press that there would be no more STs for waitlisters this year.

I believe you get all 10 games right away but if you don't keep paying the installments they will cancel the barcodes on them. I recall this happening last year to someone over in the classifieds section.

I don't really post very often but have been monitoring the boards daily for years. Figured that I would share my upgrade. I was in Section 414 row 23 (4 seats) for the past two years and with no CBA in place had decided to pass on paying for tickets. The ticket office made many attempts (phone and e-mail) to get me to pay for tickets. Then it was confirmed that the endzone sections were being ripped out and I got more information that I could relocate my seats to the sideline. I still ignored the offer and was set to watch the season from the comfort of home. Yesterday, I received an e-mail letting me know that tickets for the season were still available and they suggested to call immediately as it is first come, first serve, and not many tickets were left. I decided to email just to see what was available (for curiousity sake). After a few emails and phone calls back and forth, I was upgraded to Section 402 Row 25 (4 seats). Have to say I'm pretty excited to check out the new view. Hopefully we have something to cheer about this year.

Way to play your cards right TaylorNcooley. Had you paid on time, they probably would have moved u to a nearby enzone section. Other STH's who paid and played by the rules this year will be hatin u, but that's how the cookie crumbles.
