Default Falcons fans victims of ticket "conspiracy"????

July 7 was the "deadline" for Falcons season ticket renewals. It is an interesting coincidence...


"On July 6, the same day federal investigators were back in Surry County, Va., digging up Michael Vick’s little yard of horrors, ESPN erroneously reported the Falcons’ quarterback would not be indicted.

On July 7, Orlando Daniels of Acworth, facing a deadline and buoyed by the report, submitted his deposit for two club-level season tickets at $1,390.

Ten days later, Vick was indicted.

Ever feel like you just paid a premium for drilling rights, only to hit sand? Evidence is all over the Internet. Since Vick’s tenure with the team unofficially ended with news of a plea agreement, fans have flooded eBay, Craigslist and StubHub with their season tickets. The Web suddenly looks like a surf shop in Des Moines.

“Dude, there are people selling season tickets on the lower level, 50-yard line for below face value,” said Daniels, who had been on a waiting list for tickets for three years. “That’s unheard of in any market.”

Daniels is more than sick. He’s jumping head-first into the conspiracy pool. He believes it’s too big of a coincidence that the ESPN report coincided with his deadline to purchase tickets, and charged that the Falcons and owner Arthur Blank leaked the “news” to spur ticket sales. Nothing like a ticking Hail Mary to start the year.

“At the end of the day my gut instinct tells me that Blank, with millions of dollars at risk, had something to do with the [ESPN] story … or the [timing of the] indictment,” Daniels said. “I’m as upset as anybody about Mike. But I believe a bigger fraud has happened … people bought into a press story and made a financial commitment based on false or misleading information.”

I would take the leftover tickets if the Texans fell under a similar situation. There's 55 guys on a team, can't let one guy ruin it for you.

I know this is going to sound like I need to put the crack pipe down but I have this funny feeling that the Falcons are going to be pretty good this year.

I just have this hunch that Joey Harrington is about to pull his career out of the dumpster.

Maybe. Right now I think they are 6-10 with him. but if he is injured, they don't win ( or even come close) in another game the rest of the season.

Default Re: Falcons fans victims of ticket "conspiracy"????

To seriously look at this as a conspiracy theory, I'd like to know:
a) How many/ what % of seats had been sold for the upcoming season
b) How many/ what % of seats had NOT been renewed.
c) Since the news Vick "wouldn't be indicted" how many seats were sold.

Atlanta is a funny crowd. While there is the whole team to cheer for, I have a sneaking suspicion that isn't the case in the ATL. Vick was their golden boy/poster child, the next generation of QB. He WAS electrifying and fun to watch. The people of atlanta wanted that.

Then throw in the 'half' that thought Schaub should start for them, and would be better for the team than Vick. Both crowds are out "their" QB.

I could see how sales slipped, but I think it would take a plummit in sales to cause some sort of conspiracy he's talking about. Just kinda interesting.

I see Blank recouping some of the $$ from the Vick Contract. How much he may get back from Vick he's already given, who knows. Who knows how much $ vick saved...

Keep in mind though Len Pasquerilli, from the second the story broke out, was saying how Vick was innocent, and would never get in trouble, that its just friends taking advantage of him, that vick knew nothing...

I never took you to be a gloveless QB type a guy.


I call this one - Joey, sans guantes.

I want to know where these lower level 50-yard line tickets for below face value are for the Monday Nighter against the Saints on Dec. 3.

That's like during and after 2-14 all the people saying they were dropping their season tickets.

Well, I still had to pay 2.5 times face value for my PSL's at the time. So apparently not that many people follow through.
