Default Re: Platinum Parking (OH OH!!!!!)

Here's what I propose...

The Blue Crew 'succumbs' to the Texans ticket gouging for parking and relocates to the Yellow Lot. As a precondition of the move, they get the Texans to agree to open the Yellow Lot at 7 AM instead of Platinum. No one parks there until 11:30 anyway.

Once you are out there....the tailagates merge into one big mega party like nothing the NFL has EVER seen.

The Texans becoame known as the #1 talgate city in the world...and an example in world peace simply based on how the different lots could 'get along'.

Looks like all lots went up 50 dollars a year. We have parking in Red lot and its gone up to 300 this year and was 250 last year. I already sent an email saying I don't want red lot and will settle with either plat. or blue lot. Looks like for 2 seats and parking you're looking at close to 1500 a year or more just for tickets and parking. Wonder if the price of PSL's went up as well?

With my seat tickets going up $4.00 per game ($8.00) and parking going up $5.00 per game (or total $13.00 per game), that's a price increase of about 7.5%...

No thank you. I parked in yellow for the Broncos game, and it took us two hours to get out of the parking lot after the game. That's a traffic nightmare over there.

Default Re: Platinum Parking (OH OH!!!!!)

I have no problem with price increases as long as there is value, based on customer feedback, being provided. For me, that would be more port-a-potties and accountability with the yellow jackets on the front (training) or back end.

You leave right after the game? That's two more hours of tailgating goodness!

We stay until the coppers politely ask us to leave. Pack up, hit Main St., and never experience any traffic.

BTW, have the Texans already sent out invoices for tickets & parking? I want to make sure I haven't missed anything, because I have yet to see an invoice from them.

Last laugh is definitely on me!! I didn't include preseason in my little lesson in math 101. BUT, I guess all my TEXAN GRANDKIDS are worth it, so, I will probably pony up and pay it. Yellow's lookin mighty tempting though!

If you are thinking about going yellow, you must be on grass.

If it were Green Bay and it were the Yellow Lot, wouldn't the preference be to tailgate on the yellow snow??

Wow,
we have 4 spots over in the blue lot by the esplanade that divides the east & west sides....I guess it's the price we pay for being popular.

It does seem rather spendy, $25 per game, I wonder if it will affect fans tailgating? I pay $50 for 3 days parking at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, right across the street from the track. That always seemed like a good deal, now it's a GREAT deal.

We'll pay, because it is what it is, but I do wish they would let us in early. Would it not be cool if we could get in the nite before, party all nite! That would be wild for sure.
