And rightfully so, IMO. I like my seats and although I think the student rush program is great I'd be pretty pissed if I had to move because they randomly designated my section as the Student Rush Section.
Yeah, that is true. I guess if I were just thinking out loud if I were a marketing/sales/STH rep for the Pens, and it were deemed that setting aside a block of seats for student rushers were a good idea, you'd have to probably sacrifice even more revenue over the short term to get people to move...maybe discounting their season tickets for a year or two.
I don't know. It was a suggestion, and probably not a very good one on my part as the team giving up someone paying up front for tickets is as good as it gets.
