  6. Any comment on how that pic of the old stadium was only 25% full at most during the pictured game?
  7. #59...De'Vondre Campbell (shown being "congratulated for excellent play" by DQ)!
  8. LOL, no offense taken. I do think it’s funny though how it is often stated on the board that the folks who go to games now aren’t real fans.
  9. Average attendance for United games is still far less than Falcons, but still best in MLS. They don't require PSLs and tickets are cheaper, but there are a LOT more games, and each game is not as "meaningful" as an NFL game. Just because we pay to go to Falcons games, we are not less of "real fans" than those that don't or can't. I personally travel 250 miles from Northeast Tennessee for every home game (now in my 12th year!), so I think I qualify as a real fan.
  10. Wow, that is a really bad string of bad luck and bad service. First of all, you probably need to switch banks if yours declined 2 payments and didn't let you know. I get a text, email and a phone call for anything weird that happens with my credit card. My MB rep does contact me by email (as I have requested), but I do get phone calls for anything important that I need to do. I am astonished that you had your PSL cancelled without a phone call; I imagine that they didn't have your number on file, they had your payment declined by your bank, and then thought you were ignoring their means of contacting you (email). I can understand, but still terrible luck. There are other PSLs in the Founders Section for sale on the secondary market for about the same price you originally paid (some more, some less), so I would think if you wanted to get back in without a financial loss, you could.
  11. Bears. Best. Game. Ever.
  12. Neither I nor any family member works for the organization. I just add my opinion because, having studied and gone through the entire process, I think I understand the PSL benefits and downside better than most posters on the board. There is a lot of blatantly false information spread by some. In my experience, the Falcons have been totally honest and up front with me. I understand that Falcons Inc. is a business. It seems to me that they are a good one. They provide a product I want and enjoy, and they make a profit from it. I bought my PSL very early in the process. I was told that I would get early access to most events at the new stadium, but not SEC Championship games or Super Bowl. Only the 45k PSLs were going to get those. I posted that on the board at that time, and I believe it should have been well-known to pretty much everyone. If your rep told you different, then he/she was not truthful. That was not my experience.
  13. http://www.espn.com/nfl/attendance It certainly looks as if Atlanta did better with the Benz than Tampa did... Not all PSLs cost thousands. Whether or not it makes sense to purchase one is a personal decision, but even blue collar workers can get cheap seats. And the cheaper food choices help lower income fans have a better experience.
  14. Fan-friendly food prices have been a big PR hit for the Benz, and I certainly enjoy not getting hosed over snacks for the game. It has been so successful that several other stadiums in the NFL are planning to add as well. Tampa's stadium is half-empty for their games. There is no atmosphere there, corporate or otherwise. You can always get cheap seats there. The Benz is a MUCH better atmosphere.
  15. I was told SPECIFICALLY that I would not have access to my usual seats for SEC championship and Super Bowls. I'm pretty sure it was written in my contract. I feel confident that you were not told that you would get those with your seats. The inflated price that you saw for SB was probably the NFL OnLocation package. Those were available to the public and included more than just the seat.
