Had My Psl Sales Meeting Today

464 posts in this topic

As you get older, you will find that entertainment is more valuable and more expensive. Don't think that what you choose to spend money on at 30 will be the same as when you are 55.

Of course not. The things you have to pay for at 55 are the things you could go out and get all the time at 30.

I had my meeting today with the new stadium PSL sales folks. The presentation is very good. There is a scale model,of the new stadium, a small sample of what the halo video board will look like, demos of the new wider and softer seats. The sales guy (Nick) was friendly and knowledgeable. I'm going to enjoy the next 2 seasons in the Dome, but can't wait until the new Falcon nest is up and running!

Arthur is that you hiding behind this profile? You sneaky a$$ monopoly looking gangster.

WOW!! What a steal!! I cannot for the life of me understand why they're not sold out already!!!!

Club amenities.......that's what I ‚Äčlook for when I go to a game!

Keep up the great job trying to sell 'em Arthur! You Da Man!wink.png

The best part is the 'amenities' are 10 times a year if you count preseason. What is the breakdown per game?

I don't care what anyone says. This is a horribly stupid "investment"

Wow, you are right OP is a turd burglar.... I don't like the smirk on his face in that avatar pic either.....

Wow, you guys get really personal on this board. I have no idea what a "turd burgler" is, but I'm pretty sure I'm not one. Is that some new phrase you use in high school now?

Sorry about the "smirk". It's a picture of me and my wife on our 25th wedding anniversary. I use it as my avatar to remind myself how lucky I am to have a wife that loves me enough to let me devote so much time and resources on a team and sport I love. Being married to such a beautiful,talented and loving woman makes me smile. No smirk!

What's an eye surgeon from Tennessee doing going to Falcon games 5 hours away when you could be a Titan fan? Either you're a mole or traitor?

In northeast Tennessee, I am the same distance from Nashville as Atlanta. I'm actually closer to Charlotte, so if a traitor, it would be because I'm not a Panther fan. I kind of thought you would appreciate my being a Falcon fan. I spend 10 hours in my car for each home game. Seems like that devotion might be respected.

And...you have my name, age, picture, occupation and area of residence. Worst. Mole. Ever.

I thought children these days were supposed to be good with computers. Put your identity on the board and I bet you would quit posting things that would embarrass your parents.

Freebird gets a little weird sometimes but he is a good poster most of the time.If I was you I would just leave this post alone.You have to understand that most posters here are blue collar fanatics who with any raise in ticket prices much less a PSL are going to be upset.

You're essentially defending "Big Business" on a board full of blue collar dudes.This wasn't going to go well from the start.I'm not saying its your fault at all but that generally only goes one way.Hope you enjoy your seats and please make as much noise as you can since we can't pipe it in anymore.:)

If the product on the field isn't very good and the PSLs are overly priced. Supply and demand price correction will be inevitable

You might be able to get a better deal, but you won't be able to get better seats. The best seats will be sold first. The price for the last row in a section is the same as the first row, but which seats, or PSL if you decide to sell on the secondary market, will be more desirable for buyers? Very similar to real estate, the value is in the location.

I understand. I'm not saying I like PSLs or price increases, just trying to correct misinformation. They are our new reality. If people want season tickets, they will have to buy a PSL. If they throw a tantrum now but decide later that they want season tickets, they will end up with worse seats. You can boycot the team or plan your ticket strategy for the new stadium. Your call.

THAT is why they had to build a new stadium. The home experience is so good now that the venue, not just the event, has to be an attraction.

Which wipes alot of the blue collar guys out of the picture.I understand it is the reality of the way things work now but the way it affects some people is completely different from others.You represent one side and most of the board is the other.This boards Don Quixote is not who you want to be.

Most of the fanbase are blue collar guys who already make sacrifices to attend the games.Damn straight we're upset about the increases and deservedly so.We supported the team through thick and thin with a pretty heavy side of thin.Now they are pricing alot of those guys out of season tickets.You can keep on doing what it is you're doing but it will never end well for you.

LOL, I think I can handle the disappointment of losing my board cred. I'm not trying to lead anyone anywhere. Just pointing out that buying a $1,000 PSL paid for over 10 years (10 bucks per game) probably isn't a financial deal breaker for most at the stadium. My experience is that most fans could drink one beer less, come out even and we would all be better off.

Well then what exactly is it you're trying to do at this point?

Foolish me, I thought message boards were a place where people with common interests could go to read differing opinions.

Anyone who doesn't want to hear the truth, is so philosophically against PSLs that they would never buy them, or doesn't buy season tickets anyway can ignore this thread. Those who still want to have season tickets in the new stadium might benefit from my experience.

Well alright then.I can pretty much guarantee very few on this board can benefit from your experience.Pompous jack a**** don't make it very long on this board as you can see based on the responses to your thread.I honestly tried to provide the alternative view to what it is you're trying to present here without getting snarky.

I honestly understand and appreciate your alternative view. I'm not trying to sound pompous. I just thought that relatively few people on the board have had a chance to actually talk with the new stadium people about what having season tickets there involves, and thought folks could benefit from facts rather than hysteria. Obviously the real fans on the board would rather call me names than hear me out. No offense meant or taken.

No offense meant or taken from me either.You may have a point to make but timing and placement is everything and this isn't the place right now.I don't think that I will ever be able to justify it myself but who knows.

Now get your ass to bed man you have peoples eyes to look at and inspect tomorrow.

Some of the posters bashing this guy should really be ashamed of themselves.

Right on Duffman! Just be sure to drink one less beer so you can afford to be at the game.

I do have a few questions, my turn with the sales crew isn't until later this year because I'm in section 123 now. I am anxiously awaiting the meeting though, to find out what my options are.

My understanding is that they will have our seats picked out - and we have the option of changing them? Is that correct? Did they give you the PSL costs at the meeting and your options for paying? If so, would you mind sharing those with us so we can get an idea of what we are looking forward to in our own meeting?

I'm not looking forward to paying PSLs - because there are so many downsides to it, number one is seat location changes. Currently, we get the seat relocation opportunity every year and if we see something better during that process - we can select the seats and boom - we have moved. With PSLs, I believe we have to sell the ones we have and purchase new ones - unless there is some other opportunity I'm not aware of. Did they speak of this at all?

LOL! I'm an eye surgeon in northeast Tennessee. STH since 2007. Most PSLs will probably be $1000 unless you are in one of the club sections. A decent chunk of cash, but you have a couple of years to save it up. Doubt you would need a second mortgage for that...

I read the boards from time to time, but rarely post. Just putting in my 2 cents worth now because I see bad information about something that I know more about than most who are posting.

Thanks for sharing. In knew from the start it wouldn't be as bad as people were saying. Some people are only happy if the man is screwing em

Duff man, no not really.

He may be an eye surgeon from Tennessee but you have to ask yourself why would he respond over and over to all this hate? I mean if he can afford to pay more (preseason included) for his tickets and not to mention driving 10 hours round trip to "have his PSL meeting for a $1000 (which makes no sense either), why wouldn't he just buy his tickets and hush up"--this whole thread doesn't make sense. I honestly think he is a plant or mole for the Falcon FO
