TAF has done it: priced me out of seats


I'm done.

$900+ per seat TAF fee is just too much on top of the face value. There were 3 throwaway games this past season. Numbers don't make sense anymore.

I'm done.

Now you can be like so many other dweebs on this board.
Keep the tickets and sell most of them to make money so you can attend a few games a year.

The TAF is raking it in from many years of old school folks handing tickets down through the generations. They realized that and started tacking on fees. They soon realized that they can keep this up until supply and demand reach equilibrium. As long as you can no longer buy season tickets without a waiting list, you will have this. The fees are going up, and people are not letting them go. For example, people are usually willing to sell a season worth of tickets, but still won't give up the rights to the seat. If they want to keep belching out the TAF fees, more power to them.

The school will also slap up a mile high nose bleed section if you let them.

My advice is, Keep your tickets !! Just move to the Endzone, the EXTRA fee is $210 per season ticket there.

Mark my word, when this South endzone adds a Club/Upper deck. You will have Alot of tickets on the open market!! And the Demand will be GONE !! LSU is in for a eye opening Revelation.

Congrats on being poor! Seriously though, transfer to the endzone or upper deck and save a fortune.

You are so oblivious to how the money game works. The majority of tickets being added are suite/club tickets. Why would there be a ton of tickets on the open market?

I don't think you know how long the waiting list actually is for suites and club seats currently.

I'm not even considering the length of the waiting list. I'm speaking to the fact that all those big wigs with the pricey tickets are not going to give up their tickets in lieu for club/suite tickets. They are requesting suite/club tickets and keeping their old ones as well. That's not freeing up any more tickets to anyone without deep pockets.

Another 'look at me thread'

No one cares if you have tickets or not.
There are hundreds in line to buy your tickets immediately.
Give 'em up and quit complaining.

First of all, I'm not giving up my seats.

But I know MANY people who are feeling just like the guy who started this post. I hate to see people who Really support and love LSU get priced out. I have seen the casuel fans that have replaced the hard core ones, NOT good....

1.leave at halftime
2.Dont make all the games
3.Watching the wave going around the stadium instead of the game
etc etc etc ...

But I do know many seats in South 401-404 given to fans of Visiting teams will be moved to the new South Endzone Upper Deck. There will be approximately 1,500 general public seats. This is LONG over due !! I know where they have put us when we travel to other SEC stadiums. And its not in the Good seats.

I won't argue that the hardcore fans are being substituted for $$$ fans, but saying that LSU will feel it is ignorant. The tickets opening up from the visitors, won't put a dent after the wait list. All that's going to happen is the rich will get richer with more corporate tickets. One thing is certain, LSU won't be sent any message.

It almost pays to not even get season tickets at all.
I have mine in the east upper, but the last two seasons I've watched my best friend buy tickets in the parking lot to every game except alabama and florida for a fraction of what i'm paying. He's always gotten east uppers and since my row is always half empty anyways, he gets to sit next to me every game.
I'm seriously concidering going this route next season.

re: TAF has done it: priced me out of seats


The only reason I hate this is its caused a aurge in corporate tickets which means people getting tickets from work and vendors and many of these folks don't care that much about the team. This is waaaay worse in pro sports but you definitely see it at LSU too. But this will never stop, school have no figured out even after all this is done how to jack people for more $$$$. Ole Miss had preferred club seating and some under the overhang seats people donated to their version of TAF to qualify for and as shitty as they've been those seats have remained sold out. So what do they do. Put a requiremt that to keep them you have to donate to some fund to the tune of 6k a year per seat for which they gave a few years notice but if you don't pay it you lose your already earned seat and someone and it goes back in line to the next ranked donor who will ante up the six k which is addiction to the whatever it is per year per seat as a mandatory donation. Same thing had been done Memphis State basketball a few times. Expect that here in like five years after this latest batch of club seats opens then people will really get pissed and more corporate dead apathetic fans will appear. It's coming.

orly? When my son scored student tickets to all the games, I advertised my tickets for the season, then when that failed, game by game, and of all the many thousands of fans pining for tickets, I struck out except for the UW game and the Bama game, which I sold to a friend. I never asked more than exactly what I had in them. So, the myth that there is this tremendous pent up demand seems to be a bit of an urban legend.
