Default Season ticket prices next year?

I was just wondering if Bob will have the gall to increase tickets prices AGAIN after the fine year we are having. Price increase is actually alarming for the product we have had to endure:

Seats prices in 2002 2010

116 $46 $70
519 $35 $56
620 $30 $35

What do you all think?

I think Bob probably will raise prices Im predicting section 116 to be at least $75 if not $80.

Default Re: Season ticket prices next year?

Of course they'll go up in price. It's a business the end of the day, and the point of business is to profit. And if the demand is there, then the supply will increase in price.

Winning or losing is not indicative of ticket prices, because this team has increased prices year after year with few exceptions and they have won absolutely nothing of note.

Heck, my tickets went up after 2-14! I didn't like it, but I bought them again.

Default Re: Season ticket prices next year?

Out of curiosity, how much do season tickets typically cost on average? I ask because I'll be moving back to Houston in a few months and would like to purchase them if they are within my means.

Default Re: Season ticket prices next year?

as cheap as $300 per ticket for the season, up to $3870.50 for the club level....... best for the value is 600 endzone that is $350 per ticket for the entire season and you dont have to have PSL's for those seats.

That's not too terrible. Is it more expensive on the shady end (when the roof is open)?

I hope they raise prices simply to affect the demand side of things. Supply is what it is, so the demand side has to change if we want to see change.

I'm sorry that image caused me to laugh out loud. Just imagining showing off Toro in a new designer tutu and then using it as an excuse to raise ticket prices made me chuckle.

Thanks for brightening up my day!!

Now, if Toro was an elephant...

Valid answer but easy for you to say now that you're no longer a season ticket holder.

I appreciate the response and honesty as always.

You must have missed Toro's pathetic attempt at turning himself Battle Red. He should have used two cans of spray paint instead of just the one.

When they unveiled "Battle Red Toro" rapelling down from the rafters, I was certain that would lead to a win vs. the Ravens. Alas, maybe your observation is correct - two cans of Battle Red paint were needed instead of one. Hopefully we will learn from this shortcoming, invest in an additional can, and win our Battle Red game in 2011.

I said the same thing when I let go my tickets. I thought then and think now that PSLs are legal racketeering. As long as people continue to increase the money they pay to the NFL, they will continue to get increasing ticket prices, blackout rules that are ridiculous, increasing parking and concessions prices, and they will continue to be at the mercy of millionaires and billionaires with regard to labor disputes that affect their entertainment dollar.

It's just a cold, hard truth in life that you get more of what you subsidize. I understand it at a personal level, and I can also step back and analyze it logically. I did so and therefore made the choice I made. I don't expect too many will do that, so therefore I hope the prices rise to unsustainable levels.

Just keep a eye on fuel and food prices....they will be going up rapidly and I do think the prices on the tickets will be increased. Don't blame the oil companies don't blame the food producers and don't blame the NFL owner...blame the government for all the bailouts and for printing money more and more money with nothing backing it. I just wondering if we will even have a 2011 season.
