BjN, you can go to every game you want for $10 - you just have to buy from scalpers, give up a specific seat, forgo the little perks STOs are given, and lose your direct connection to the team. I'm really tired of the whining about ticket discounts and reduced price programs. All of such efforts are direct decedents of Knothole Gangs, Ladies Day, and all the rest of Bill Veecks' imaginative baseball promotions. You remember baseball, America's Game? Yet that's where these things were all invented by a promotional genius. If you think the value of your season tickets are compromised by promotions and giveaways, give them up and sit wherever you like and pay what you wish to fork over. Why is this concept so difficult to understand?
