Viagra Information

Viagra pill splitter After the news broke yesterday about the NY Mets Third Annual Adjustment of Ticket Prices, viagra pill splitter I got an e-mail inviting me to a conference call with Mets Executive VP of Business Operation, viagra pill splitter David Howard to ask questions about the new dynamic pricing on Mets tickets. Viagra pill splitter As most of you know, viagra pill splitter I’m not a fan of Howard’s and from what I hear the feeling is mutual. Viagra pill splitter After last night’s conference call nothing has change in our relationship.

Viagra pill splitter Howard started the call by reiterating what was in the press release where the organization has scraped its Platinum, viagra pill splitter Gold, viagra pill splitter Silver, viagra pill splitter Tin Can tier pricing to a new pricing program where Mets tickets will be priced like a commodity. Viagra pill splitter Just like gold, viagra pill splitter silver and pork bellies (the Skill Sets have really morphed into the Duke brothers   ) the price of a Mets ticket will now be set by market demand, viagra pill splitter however there is one caveat, viagra pill splitter there is a minimum price a ticket will go for and it will be what a season ticket holder paid for their ticket, viagra pill splitter which is fair as the organization is protecting its best customer. Viagra pill splitter Ah, viagra pill splitter  but this being the Mets there always a “read the fine print” moment  and in this case it’s giving season ticket holders a deadline of November 7th to make a payment to commit to 2012 season tickets. Viagra pill splitter This is a full  month earlier than usual and as Howard Megdal points out right at the time teams can have exclusive negotiating rights with its own free agents.  The Mets fan cynic in me says this means that there is no way the club will resign Jose Reyes and  they want to make sure those who hold season tickets  make an early commitments  before they can decide if a Reyes-less Mets team is one they want to invest their discretionary income.

Viagra pill splitter I’m not a season ticket holder but I did at one time buy partial plans but with different commitments and such, viagra pill splitter I decided to buy game tickets when I know I’m free to go to games. Viagra pill splitter So under this plan I will have to play Russian Roulette Mets style to buy my tickets. Viagra pill splitter The price of tickets will vary as to who the opponent is and if the team is in contention or an also ran. Viagra pill splitter So a seat for a game against the San Diego Padres on a Monday night in September will  a whole lot less than a game against the Highlanders on a June Friday night. Viagra pill splitter  Classic supply and demand.

Viagra pill splitter The question I posed to Howard was about all the seats with no ass’s in them behind home plate and how watching the current post season games from Citizen Bank Park, viagra pill splitter Comerica Park and Rangers Ballpark where there are real good old fashion baseball seats with fans in them as opposed to Citi Field where fans would rather sip Chardonnay and talk about how happy they are that the financial intuition they work for is sucking the country’s economy dry, viagra pill splitter than watch a baseball game. Viagra pill splitter So courtesy of Amazin’ Avenue, viagra pill splitter who has done a fantastic job of transcribing the conference call (a big tip of the Mets cap to Chris McShanne and James Kannengieser )  here is my question and Howard’ response:

Viagra pill splitter Steve Keane, viagra pill splitter Ed Kranepool Society: This is the 3rd year in a row that the organization has revamped its ticket program and it seems like the organization has a problem reading its fan base. Viagra pill splitter Watching these postseason games, viagra pill splitter especially games at Citizens Bank Ballpark, viagra pill splitter Comerica and Arlington, viagra pill splitter you see the seats behind home plate are regular stadium seats, viagra pill splitter whereas at Citi Field they have these big expensive luxury seats. Viagra pill splitter Has there ever been any thought of taking those seats out by the Champions Club, viagra pill splitter and putting in seats where fans will actually sit in those seats during games.

Viagra pill splitter  

Viagra pill splitter DH: The Champions Club is behind home plate but not immediately behind home plate on the field level. Viagra pill splitter It’s actually technically off of the field level concourse. Viagra pill splitter They sit above the Sterling Seats. Viagra pill splitter With regards to the Champions Club in particular, viagra pill splitter we are actually changing that club and making it an all-inclusive club. Viagra pill splitter While the prices are essentially remaining constant, viagra pill splitter there is going to be complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages served.

Viagra pill splitter  

Viagra pill splitter I think in regards to the Delta Club, viagra pill splitter which is the club that’s on camera from the center field view during games, viagra pill splitter those are upholstered theater-style seats. Viagra pill splitter They are very comfortable. Viagra pill splitter They are a premium seat. Viagra pill splitter They are basically sold out. Viagra pill splitter Again, viagra pill splitter you may not see people sitting in those seats all the time. Viagra pill splitter They may be in the club, viagra pill splitter they may be in the back, viagra pill splitter they may not be there. Viagra pill splitter Those seats are sold, viagra pill splitter so we don’t have any plans at this point to change those. Viagra pill splitter What happens is that the team starts to win more, viagra pill splitter it gets more exciting; people will be in those seats on an increased basis.

Viagra pill splitter So in essence, viagra pill splitter who gives a shit if someone is sitting in the seats, viagra pill splitter THEY’RE PAID FOR!!!! And they are sold out (I guess those were the tickets that sold like “hotcakes” last season) Howard’s thinking is we can get the corporate suit here to wine and dine during games but it’s you annoying Mets fans with your rent and mortgages and families to take care of and on top of that insisting on having a winning team that we need to buy tickets.  There has to be some bloodline between David Howard and M.Donald Grant .
