Definitely true on that part. Although I do recall a lot of Atlanta fans complaining that their management was completely messed up in how they handled their STH's in a lot of instances over the past few years. IIRC one of the things they mentioned that hurt their retention badly is that it was more affordable in many instances for people to buy individual game tickets for their games rather then a ST plan due to the management doing so many promos.

Honestly I think the ASG is going to offset the downtick in STH's here that you would normally see after a bad season, plus add a few extras. If anything it's going to move a ton of the 12 game packs up to full or 26 games.
