In a shocking development, Florida’s athletic association votes to almost double the prices of Cocktail Party tickets by 2017.

Not that I give a rat’s ass about what Florida does but—move the damn game.
Foley is nothing if not an astute business man. For Florida fans, there is a long waiting list for this game, so he is charging what the market will bear.
Basic economics. My Gator friends say they hope our current coaching staff stays for a long time just as they wanted Bowden to stay.
I would pay twice the going rate if we were guaranteed a win. The Gators are not at a 100% for the last two decades but they are close enough to believe they will 80% of the time. Why we have allowed this situation to continue speaks volumes about our real desire to win. I guess we are comfortable with our win/loss record against the gators.
The win/loss record is no problem whatsoever for our accounts receivable department
Exactly. The UGA Athletic Department and Administration a care more about money than winning. Not unlike the Western Carolinas of the world playing at UT every time they play them just to get a check. Plus some (and I emphasize that it is only some) of the UGA fans/alums care more about winning the party than winning the game.
Raising ticket prices will eventually drive this game out of Jacksonville. Fans will slowly stop making the trip, the stadium will be less than full, and it will become a home and away series. Jax is an awesome weekend trip, but it has run its course.
“[W]e’re here to help.” Jeremy’s spoken.
If we don’t start to win more then this will just become a Gayturd home game as UGA fans stay home and UF fans buy all the tickets.
Move it anyway. Neutral field my ass.
Hard to question their judgement, next to the SECCG, the Georgia/Florida game is the highlight game of the year on both teams’ schedule and has a higher value. You can argue that adding premium pricing for the big games would also demand lowering the ticket price for games involving the College of Charleston or Utah State, but the ticket value for the WLOOCP is definitely higher. (This subject of ticket value has nothing to do with bringing out the minority whiners about the location of the game, but it naturally ticks them off to see how ridiculous others perceive their viewpoint about that game needing to be changed. Now if the game were something fans would NOT pay the current ticket price for, much less pay a premium for, they might have a case.)
