It’s the guarantee of getting money up front, instead of “maybe money in the future.”
My idiot friends and I wouldn’t have made it through an hour of this before going double agent on each other and driving away while the dunk dude is left alone in the driveway. We were sort of dicks. Also, none of us could dunk.
Stay white, and you’ll be alright.
Two obvious takes
It’s like paying a cover to get into the grocery store to spend money.
Ah, there’s the rub. So after years of horseshit, you tell the sports team to fuck off; they respond by putting a better product on the floor, and now you can’t get back into the stadium because corporate weenies have bought up all the tickets & driven prices out of reach of many.
The Jazz have something close to PSLs, although the seat rights can be sold for more than what you paid (I believe). http://m.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Journal/Issues/2012/05/21/Franchises/Jazz-tickets.aspx
So isn’t the next logical step a Pre-PSL, buying the right to buy the PSL which buys you the right to buy a seat?
Agreed. I am not actually priced out of major sporting events but every time I go they just feel less fun and more like a corporation trying to take every dollar they can find from you. Maybe it’s always been like this and I just got older but regardless I just don’t really enjoy pro sports any more.
If you want to buy season tickets, you first have to pay a certain amount one time, up front. The team then takes that money. I know you were expecting an “and,” with an explanation, but that’s it. They take the money, and that’s the end of that transaction.
When I lived in the Bay Area and would attend Warriors games when they weren’t good I was impressed by the local fanbase who were loyal, fervent, and turned out in droves. The rally call was never “Go Warriors”, it was always “Go Oakland”.
Something has to give right? I mean, who’s going to be able to afford to go to these games. At some point, the common person isn’t. Hell, I was just reading the Buck’s tickets are going up 70% for the new arena. I’m not about to drop $100/ticket. I can afford it but that’s just stupid.
As a military brat that spent some time in NorCal right around the time the 49ers became champs again and suddenly everyone in a 2 hour radius remembered they were huuuuuge 9ers fans, I personally can not wait for that subset of Warriors fans from Oakland who have stuck it out with the team through all the terrible…
I’m against this just like how I’m against shopping at stores that require memberships (like sams club or Costco). Why would I pay you in order to give you money?
When will we as a society start saying “fuck off?” Seriously.
The Warrior will also accept 60% ownership in your start up.
I know it was never proven, but its worth mentioning that Fedor’s 16 yr old daughter was attacked and hospitalized by a “random” assailant a couple days after he made the comments about Kadyrov. Must be a coincidence.
I had heard of some of these incidents but it’s never been framed before. Well, that’s terrifying.
Why must he repeatedly mention that the doctor who was dragged off the United flight is Asian?
