Who here is renewing their season tix????

I'm most likely not going to do it for the 1st time in 11 yrs but it has nothing to do w/the lockout or the rebuild but rather me having a 4yr old and 11 month old and me moving to central NJ instead of Staten Island so the commute after games would suck.

But anyway I was curious if others are reupping or not and if not if it's because of the lockout.

As a side note anybody who has tix and wants to relocate or is thinking of signing up for tix I would HIGHLY suggest trying to get the seats I', most likely giving up because I thought they were the best value seats in the building.

They're blueline across from the NYR bench in the 300's but they are the very last row in the 300 level so you have a 12 ft wall behind you before the blueseats start so the freedom that this allowed was unbelievable in that I basicly stood the entire game or sat on the top end of the seat so the view was great.

It also has a ledge that served as a table behind you for food/drinks and all in all they were just great seats so if anyone is interested in getting these let me know and I'll give you the info once I decide to definetely not renew.

I'd rather somebody at HF get them then somebody else if they are interested.

I am, my friend isnt. He is all pissed off that ticket prices didnt go down as a result of the hard cap. Even though I told him they werent going to he thought they would.

I split the tickets with three other guys, so I have a different situation. Myself and another guy were against reupping, because of the ineptitude of the management as well as the lockout. Also, I just started a company in November and didn't know how much time I would have to go watch hockey.

However, I am now on the fence as what to do. I guess I have the bug again. Plus, we had just moved down to the 100 level and I'm curious to watch the games from here (with paid tickets that is )

BTW, JR, where did you move to in Central NJ?

The commute may not suck. I lived in Marlboro at one time and took the train from Penn to Metro Park. Only one-half hour. Also the schedule was pretty decent.

I'm selling out NYC to get the bigger house but I'll never sell out being a long suffering NYR fan, especially to become a Devil fan!

i was looking over my invoice yesterday wondering why i wanted to pay over $5000 for my pair knowing full well it's going to be another long, painful season. i'm torn between renewing, dropping down to a cheaper section, or cancelling. now if we were to land Crosby that would change things. i'd renew in a heartbeat. i know it will still take some time, maybe a couple seasons before we return to winning ways...but at least there will be the promise of glory days to come.

Couldn't slide that one past you, eh??

All I can say is, welcome to the neighborhood!!! And by the way, you're right about the commute. For us western Monmouth/Ocean county residents, it's a heck of a commute. I normally drive about 35 minutes to catch a train that takes one hour and ten minutes (or about a six pack) to get to Penn Station.

When you move down, send me a PM and I'll meet up with you.

I'm shooting for a mini...

41 games is just too much and in my last season I must've eaten about 20 pairs. That becomes expensive over time.

don't you mean 44 games. I love how we get to pay full price for 3 absolutely meaningless pre-season games. If the post-season costs more, shouldn't the pre-season cost less? that's a huge pet peave of mine...just another way the fan gets ripped when he should be rewarded for being a season ticket holder.

You'll be around 25 minutes from me (when I live in Jersey and not in PA). Howdy, neighbor!

Most teams have 4-5 home preseason games. And away preseason games arent even on TV.

but why should i have to pay full price for a meaningless game? i mean who would walk up to the box office and actually pay more than a few bucks to see it? it's a bunch of crap...i wish more sportswriters would make a stink about it, especially now considering how all the talk is about what teams need to do to win back their fans. it really pisses me off.
