Pred fans are generally pretty decent I think so I'm surprised. Come try again this year and bring friends! I plan on being nice to anyone that buys a ticket.

On the ticket front the Post says 8,438 sold with 6,364 renewal and 2,074 new. I can't recall the renewal rate last year (I think it was mentioned around here at some point) but is running at 80% for full and 53% for partials according to the article. I would guess it will be as good or better than last year. Article indicates last year's number was 8,758. As it stands now, here is the rough grid of where we will stand at various renewal rates:

80% = 9,080
90% = 9,956
100% = 10,832

I would think the goal is 12,000+ based on the early years. The community group's goal was to add 3,000 new this year. Based on the direction this is going I would think they will get close to hitting that and we will see a 90% renewal rate. My guess is that puts us at around 11,000 when the season starts. If so, I think it is reasonable to expect group/charity sales to increase some this year and single game/walk ups to hold steady or fall some (as the new buyers are offset by those that are converted into season tickets). As such, I think we could average 15,500 next year.
