From McGarity’s Minutes comes the new ticket pricing structure, starting, as I expected, in 2018.
Basically, they’re going to a two-tier format, one for P5 opponents, at $75 a game, and another for the cupcakes. at $55 a game. Total cost for a season ticket: $465. The average per game ticket price has gone from $50 to over $66. That’s some “adjustment”… er, “modest increase” you got there, Greg. I’d hate to see what a full bore, rip ’em a new one would look like.
The secondary market for the attractive games just got more expensive for those of you who intend to forego the season ticket route. I feel your pain, dawgs.
As a finish, this is a nicely weaseled touch:
With the success we have experienced, we will incur increases in
compansationcompensation to maintain that level of success. We plan to make substantial adjustments to the compensation of our coaching staff, which will necessitate these ticket increases.
Hey, don’t blame Greg, blame Jimmy Sexton. I’m sure not a penny of the scheduled increase will make its way to anywhere but Kirby’s paycheck.
Jeez, man, I knew the hit was coming. At least you could have been straight about it from the get-go. If I’m getting screwed, I’d like to be kissed.
